Hi guys.... Just free xped Missouri and have it in port now. Been away for a while from boats and now I dunno where to start or continue. 

Now we have brit BBs, some new premiums... Anything else. Should I look out for? Like captain skills, OP boats I should grind for etc?

Welcome back mate Hope the Kacapathy is going well.

lets see.

Missouri going.   Musashi replacing it.

Brit BB line just burns everything

French are made of paper so overpens actually save you

Most prems being removed from the tech tree in the next patch

Radar ships such as the USCA and Chappy still cause havoc for DDs

Carriers are still crap.....................................................Minotaur divs make them cry.

Hey Spawnster, welcome back!

Yep, UK BBs are here and French BBs are coming soon too. Also check the new Pan Asian DD line for Deep Water Torpedo.

For recent premium, Roma is fantastic Battleship, you may consider grabbing one.

The Belfast, Atlanta and MK were taken out a while ago.

I think Belfast, MK and Perth were permanently removed from shop, not Atlanta. Might just be rotating out.

The biggest two IMO are:

- Smoke Firing

- Deep-water torpedoes.

Smoke firing now increases your spotted range based on calibre of weapons. DDs are 2-3km, 150s on CLs are about 5ish kms, 203s are around 7-8km, BBs it's usually 16+km.

Deep-water torps are a mechanic of Pan-Asian DDs, they can't hit DDs but can hit everyone else.

Google smoke firing distances for a list (every ship is different, I just gave you general distances).

Most other changes are simply new ships and the like. KM DDs 6+ have hydro, Pan-Asia can get radar in higher tiers, Missouri has radar.

And finally, welcome back Spawnster, it's been a while, I had taken a few years off until May this year, so I know the feels.

Oh and WG screwed over ANZ players with clan battles, they made it wed/Thurs/sat/sun, 11pm-2am Sydney time, meaning 1-4am NZ time...

About removing premiums, this is what 0.7.0 update notes say: https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/announcements/ver-070-patchnotes/

 

<<Developers, Supertesters and other special contributors can test US Tier VI Destroyer Monaghan, British Tier VII Destroyer Cossack, and Japanese Tier VIII Destroyer Asashio.

With the next Update 0.7.1 only the following ships are available for in-game purchase with Doubloons: 

 Alabama, Tirpitz, Perth, Kii, Duca d'Aosta, Loyang, Leningrad, Atago, De Grasse, Hood, Yubari, Sims, Molotov, Graf Spee, Błyskawica

Get Japanese Tier IX Battleship Musashi, sister ship of the mighty Yamato, for 750,000direct from your tech tree!

Now's your chance to pick up the US Tier IX USS Missouri for in-game Free EXP -- she's departing on release of Update 0.7.2 as we roll out Musashi, the new Tier IX Battleship that can be acquired with Free EXP. We decided two ships occupying the same niche at the time is one too many. Get grinding, you can still get Missouri for another month.>>

 

Except for the Missouri, cannot find info on withdrawing more premiums. Just that the above are available in the tech tree for doubloons, for other you have to wait until they are offered in the store, I guess.

Some of the Ships tested by super testers may be premium, don't know.

Pan Asian line is like USN but can't contest caps as well due to the torps.

Conqueror is annoying as hell and has broken HE.

Kharba is run and gun now, it's trollish like Zao, so great in good hands.

It's not CW, it's CB, basically team battles but for clan. Last season (the first) they disabled CVs, made it tier 10 and then to compensate you could get certain rent-a-ships if you had a tier 8. (But no Camo).

It was a massive fiasco.

CB will alternate seasons with ranked AFAIK.

Just play British BB''s load HE, fire and then watch your opponent catch fire with even only one shell  hit. :cap_tea:

Wait for DC to be used then repeat. IF they shoot back your citadels are so low you'll laugh it off. :cap_haloween:

Sigh most frustrating line to play against if they are played correctly. :cap_viking:

Khabab is still good though it was dam OP before the nerf. They nerf the torps range from 10km to 6km & increase the rudder shift to 11.1km.

With full steering gears mod 2 & 3 you can have a 5.3s rudder shift which makes it easier to dodge salvos from every :etc_swear: ships who thinks that khabab is the most OP ship compared other class. Shoot you till kingdom comes

But that come with a 10km concealment and frankly there are better fire support platform at that tier that dont cost the team a dd slot.

Khaba cannot gain ground near cap at all, it is a light cruiser after all

Khaba range is pathetic 13.5 km. Compared to Tashkent's 15.2km. Also, kiss goodbye your caps when facing real DDs.

Hmm and dodging..  If I see Khaba in 12km from my Montana, it's going to lose half of it's health.

Hmmm... So.not worth it to get the Khabarosvk now? How about the other RU Tier 10 DD? I'm on Benson for US. Might as well go for gearing?

Khaba is good support DD, specially with Heals. But struggles when lack of actual DDs (and the recent condition of DD playerbase is sort of unbearable). Grozovoi is AA destroyer, has very competitive concealment and fantastic gun performance too. Fletcher is still the best in US DD line. Gearing is pointless now, specially after YY which can equip RADAR.
