Graf Zeppelin and Soviet battleships changes
The total damage output of Graf Zeppelin is still very high. To keep the special features of GZ’s attack planes and dive bombers and balance the total amount of damage this CV can inflict, the damage of torpedoes is lowered from 5500 to 4533. This change will be live at 14:00 UTC on 13.03.19
It’s not planned to make further changes to the parameters of Graf Zeppelin, Saipan, Kaga and Enterprise. We consider their balancing finished. We also would like to remind you that you can exchange your CVs in the Inventory section before the time to do this expires with 0.8.2.
– Accuracy settings are changed for Lenin and all researchable tier III – X soviet battleships;
– Damage Control Party duration is lowered to 10 seconds for for Lenin and all researchable soviet battleships.
The accuracy settings for the Soviet battleships were very “unnatural” and the change of the spread at long range increases sharply. Also such settings gave too large of an accuracy bonus at distances of mid to close range fights. Therefore, the values of the vertical and horizontal spread were adjusted so that accuracy depending on the distance changes more smoothly. This will slightly reduce the accuracy on the range up to 12 km.
The Soviet battleships were too effective in “tanking” cruisers’ damage thanks to their good armor, high HP pool and the special settings of the Damage Control Party. Therefore, to balance the interaction of the Soviet BBs and cruisers, but keep other traits intact, the duration of the DCP is reduced. This will increase the total damage Soviet BBs receive from fires.
[PSA] Giulio Cesare testing and premium ships status
ST, test ships changes.
Soviet destroyer Neustrashimy, tier IX.
Changed the parameters of the “Repair party” consumable:
— Healing is reduced from 2% to 1.5% of maximum hit points per second.
The concept of a destroyer with an improved “Repair party”, which can restore a large number of hit points, has proven itself well and has allowed Neustrashimy to survive clashes with the enemy and have the ability to return to active combat later in the battle. However, to balance Neustrashimy with other destroyers, we needed to reduce the efficiency of this consumable.
Italian destroyer Leone, tier VI.
Changed the parameters of the “Smoke Generator” consumable:
— The number of charges is reduced from 2 (3) to 1 (2);
A large number of Smoke Generator charges make a destroyer very forgiving of mistakes. Given her long emission and duration time, Leone was very effective at her tier. Now, with the wrong positioning and inappropriate activation of the consumable, the destroyer can more easily end up without charges at the end of the battle and, as a result, will be less effective.
