Original post:

 

ST, Co-op matchmaking, 14 Ranked season and other improvements

The matchmaker for Cooperative battles will be updated in 0.8.10. Battles will be fought in the "9 vs 9" format, and in case of a team not being filled with players, the additional bots will be more diverse. A larger number of ships will make battles more intense and will enrich the game experience.

 


Ranked season 14, beginning in the middle of Update 0.8.10, will be fought on tier X ships in a new format of "8 vs 8". There will be no more than 1 aircraft carrier per team. The main reward remains unchanged - up to 5 500 steel.
 


According to your feedback, the special visuals of the Eastern Dragon, Southern Dragon and ARP ships will become a separate permanent camouflage. They will have standard combat bonuses. Also, other camouflages and special upgrades may be mounted on these ships. If the additional content settings menu is used to hide these camouflages, then they will be dismounted.
 


We continue to work on the game's visuals and tech aspects.
The maps Solomon Islands, Ring, New Dawn, Hotspot, Two Brothers, Shards, Estuary, Haven, Archipelago, and Land of Fire, as well as the ports Saint Petersburg and Ocean are updated for the new lighting model.
The aiming reticle will utilize new technology, the same as the minimap starting from Update 0.8.5. This will help us to introduce improvements to the game in a more efficient way.


Please note that the information in the Development Blog is preliminary and subject to change.

 

PS. Have anyone ever wondered why 'normal' permanent camos for T6, 7 and 8 tech tree ships provide the exact same bonuses and yet cost significantly higher for higher tier ships?

Thats some welcoming news. Especially the ARP and Dragon.

 

Perma camo, IMO, without perma camo in T6 and T7 you will still get good economic gains (premium time not included). Just dont die early.

But from T8 the credits are some times negative. Due to ships high maintenance cost.

Naked T9 and T10 will always be negative credits, if you die too early in random battles or if you win in co-op battles. Bought a luxury ship but don't have enough credits to pay for her maintenance. Why T9 and T10 perma camo has good bonus, cuz they are high maintenance ships. :Smile_sad:

 

Adding additonal players in Co-ops may or may not help naked ships. Extra kills = extra points = extra creds. I will have to wait till 8.10 to get results.

On the other hand, scripted player bots will also be rampant. :Smile-angry:

I meant that those camos provide the same "10% less service cost" and "50% more exp gained" and yet the T6 cost 1000 Doubloon, T7 2000 and T8 3000. Greed.

All Doubloon perma camos need more bonuses to justify the price (esp. T7 and T8 ones)

T7: 15% less service cost and 10% extra credit earning

T8: 20% less service cost and 10% extra credit earning

T9: add 20% extra credit earning

OK that mean my collection of ARP ship got a ( slightly ) free upgrade ; well 8 vs 8 Tier 10 on next Ranked with CV  ....  I am not sure about that ... there's simply too many Premium introduced this last 18 months and players who are just lucky enough to grind to T10 with say a tech tree ship can be significantly handicapped .. that's not really healthy for the game

Finally. This was way overdue. But better late than never I guess.

Ah, now I understand what you mean now.

Good point and good suggestion.

Perma Camo should cost the same if the function is the same. They can justify cost if the function is different per tier.

Or they can reduce the price of T7/8 perma camos.

Seriously...

1000% agree:Smile_great:

If perma camo has different function
T5 = 500 dbl (- 5% post battle)
T6 = 1000 dbl (- 10% post battle)
T7 = 1500 dbl (- 15% post battle)
T8 = 2000 dbl (- 20% post battle)
T9 = 3000 dbl (- 20% post battle, + 10% credit earned)
T10 = 4000 dbl (-50% post battle, + 20% credit earned)

If perma camo has same function
T5 to T8 = 1000 dbl (- 10% post battle)
T9 = 2000 dbl (- 20% post battle)
T10 = 4000 dbl (- 50% post battle, + 20% credit earned)

 

No change in earned experience except for T8. Insted of 50%, should be raised to 100%.

This needs to be addressed. It's weird how no one says anything about this before. Not that I care, just want to point out.

 

Anyway, dying for the Pasta cruisers right now... But I need to grind like 3 more 10-point captains... 

And WHERE IS SIEGFRIED??? They better replace her with the 380 with Odin's 305! 380 is not the gun size for even a large cruiser!
