I'm not a CBT player... but played since 2015 or 2016.

Here are the things I rembember

1. Kitakami was in the game!

2. Wall hugger (Also called Blue Liner)

3. Unavoidable Midway's torps

4. 9T Kagero  8T Fubuki 7T Hatsuharu...

5. Iowa's critical bug (HE bug)

6. T7 meets T10 without squad

7. Unbalanced CV MM ( No CV vs 1 CV)

8. Spot Mechanism changed 

9. T1 ~ T5 skill. Also included 'detected skill' 《= what I mean here is that before the patch you should learn the skill to know if you are detected.

10. Too many Draws!

These are the things I remember....

What do you guys remember about the past patches?

1> The true wall of skill that make  both of team  frightened

2>The ultimate strategy that can flip the table

3>In CBT auto drop is surprisingly good, manual drop suck

4>Have fun sniping CV with 20km stealthy torpedo  

5>Still most beloved US BB that time

6>Not much problem since that time the only thing the see difference between those tier 7 vs 10 is one have more gun and hp, as long as you deal dmg,no problem

7>Have fun to have AS setup against enemy team have no CV

8>Most of ppl don't know how concealment work until WG show it in game, plus steal fire is "fun and engagement" mechanic 

9>Only CV and DD  care about "situation awareness" since spotting mechanic is a mess and we need 5 skill point to get rank 5 captain skill 

10>Fun and Engagement

Minekaze once ruled the ocean.

Oh, and Liz Taylor was magically transformed into a young buxom wench.

Now we have Kitakaze, similarly OP.

2. Wall hugger (Also called Blue Liner)

Still a very useful technique to avoid shell hits, even though there are movement penalties.

3. Unavoidable Midway's torps

Forget Midway torps, now Midway AP bombs are the real menace. Even though the hanger capacity was adjusted.

4. 9T Kagero  8T Fubuki 7T Hatsuharu...

Doesn't matter what tier now, same shit. Although now you can play T7-T9 mainline with TRB instead of Smoke, even more noob bait.

5. Iowa's critical bug (HE bug)

Fixed the bug and lowered the citadels, thanks to NA.

6. T7 meets T10 without squad

788 is a thing in SEA now (7 is the CV), so yah you still can meet them when enemy div have the same idea.

1 hour ago, Dark_Tenshi said:

7. Unbalanced CV MM ( No CV vs 1 CV)

Not anymore, but that introduced CV anchoring as said above.

1 hour ago, Dark_Tenshi said:

8. Spot Mechanism changed

Almost everyone now play RADAR cruisers. You don't think about spotting when you are already dead.

9. T1 ~ T5 skill. Also included 'detected skill'

Skill tree changed many times. Only good thing that came out of those changes are free captain skill reset.

10. Too many Draws!

Not anymore, now its "Too many losses!"

 

 

Well I pretty much remember everything. And I think I summarized those well :D

  • Omaha was crap
  • There was no protected MM for new players.
  • T4/T5 CVs were OP cause of manual drops.
  • CV UI was trash (still is to some degrees).
  • Bismarck had OP hydro.
  • NO MORE STEALTH FIRING.
  • Belfast and Kutuzov joined the ranks of Gremy and Nikolai. Aka, removed permanently from shop.
  • Minekaze was too OP, so balanced enough to make Kamikaze look OP.
  • When HE shells on BBs were frowned upon, now its a meta.
  • Division can no longer ensure wins.
  • There are now scenarios.
  • More human play co-op now.
  • More bots play random now.
  • Most Shimakazes still do not know how to play.
  • There was a time when rock-paper-scissor and shotgun meta was relevant. Now you cant say.

 

Wait, there are more... but eh
