Proof?

 

 

Dated September 13th (Sorry guys, was busy and I missed it).

Hello everyone, and thanks for preliminary opinions on the subject.

These balance changes will be carefully tested on ST and then, if approved, on PT. We realize the possible impact (and several probabilities of gameplay shift here), so we will be careful about it. 
You should realize that we wouldn’t let this even to ST if we didn’t consider it to be good for the game. And we will not let such changes into production if they turn out to be bad.

I see that BB armor changes are the top story today. Well, let me elaborate a little more on the concept:

1. This change will NOT make BBs useless and fragile. BBs have traverse armor, so they still will be able to tank. I guess the most efficient way will be getting at “diamond” angle towards the shooter, as this will put both traverse and belt into work. Yamato will stay most tanky at straight bow projection, though – due to her traverse geometry. Will this make BBs more vulnerable? Yes, but only against each other. And this will contribute to in-class balance (Hello, Yamato-Montana duel), too.

2. This change is intended to go with economy tweaks – with counting “potential damage” and “recon/recon damage” when calcualting battle reward. We do think this will not punish the agressive playstile alltogether.

3. This change will make the situation better for high-tier cruisers, who really need some love. And who are constantly getting divided by zero with BB shells, as BBs often tend to ignore each other safely.

4. BB population increase is the real problem now. They are balancing on the edge of allowed combat effeciency and their numbers are growing. And they live too long. So we need to find the way to tweak them. The proposed way is actually the most delicate (God, I am happy you didn’t see other options).

This concept should work. But It may not work, and we may be wrong (as we are definetely not infallible). That is why it will be carefully tested on ST and then (only if it is welcomed there) on Public Test.

It may change, may stay, may be postponed or accepted. We don’t know yet, but we will find out, probably with your help.

Have a nice day, and let’s see how it goes.
Cheers.

​Hmmmm BB lasting longer hmmm now I wonder why they last longer during the battle and tend to be the last ones left alive at the end of battle?? well lets see ohh that's it ITS BECAUSE THEY ARE CAMPING AT THE BACK OF THE MAP OR THEY ARE RUNNING AWAY UNTIL THE END OF BATTLE DUH. Oh and a reason why they are increasing in numbers is because most players have played either DD or CV or cruisers first and are now only just playing BBs  and since the German line was put in the game players are playing them more often now. as they have finished the USA and IJN BB lines as well.

Now all the BB players are going to run even more and camp even further at the back of the map since they cant tank any more.

 

3. This change will make the situation better for high-tier cruisers, who really need some love. And who are constantly getting divided by zero with BB shells, as BBs often tend to ignore each other safely.

Well BB love to shoot cruisers as they know they can take 80% of their HP with one salvo that's why they die so quickly as they don't have enough HP to begin with.

couldn't agreed more in this. Cruisers poplulation must have went down because they are dying like flys at the frontline with bb shooting at range and dd shooting torp.

......and the reason why there is so many BBS -because one of the most awaited tech tree lines is finally here.

GERMAN BBS

everyone wants to kaptain a Bismarck or Scharnhorst

It's a fun line

 

I have no doubt when the British cruisers finally arrive the Royal Navy teaboos will jump on them and it will be back to normal

 

Now if you can only do something about the 4 to even 6 DDS in a game especially on domination,  that would be great
