The changes will be applied to Thunderer, Stalingrad, Italian battleships and test ships.
We’ve changed the characteristics of several ships, including special ships Thunderer and Stalingrad, having analyzed their combat performance and taken player feedback into account. Such changes were required in order to carefully adjust the balance of selected warships. We’ll monitor the impact of the changes and general balance of ships, as usual we’ll apply changes if deemed necessary.
