World of Warships – Changes to the Armory


starting from Update 0.9.3, the following ships will no longer be available in the Armory:

  • Soviet cruiser Smolensk, Tier X;

  • French battleship Jean Bart, Tier IX;

  • Soviet destroyer Neustrashimy, Tier IX;

  • American cruiser Flint, Tier VII;

  • American destroyer Black, Tier IX.

Smolensk and Jean Bart have become very popular on their Tiers. However, in order to maintain the diversity of team compositions at a proper level, these ships will be removed for an undefined time, but may return in future.

Due to the different reasons Neustrashimy, Flint, and Black are not very demanded for steel now and thus they won’t be available for Steel, but not earlier than in half a year they will return to the Armory, where they will be obtainable in exchange for Coal.

We understand that accumulating resources for ships is a long process, which is why we wanted to warn you in advance, so that those interested can steer these ships into their Ports before Update 0.9.3 goes live in approximately two months.

Additionally, we would like to give you heads-up on upcoming ships:

  • French destroyer Marceau, Tier X. Will be available for Coal;

  • Japanese battleship Yashima, Tier X. Will be available for Steel;

  • Japanese destroyer Hayate, Tier X. Will be available for Free XP;

  • European destroyer Smaland, Tier X. Will be available for Free XP.

The exact Updates and the amount of required resources will be announced later.
