SuperTest:

Balance Changes.

In version 0.8.11 the following balance changes will be made:

Japanese aircraft carrier Hosho, Tier IV:

- Changed torpedo aiming parameters.

Previously, Hosho torpedo bombers maintained narrow aiming cones whilst performing manoeuvres, making accurate aiming much easier. Now the possible angle of torpedo drop is increased during manoeuvres. This change will reduce the efficiency of the Hosho as well as restore the Japanese flavor of the Hosho's torpedo bombers.

American aircraft carrier Midway, Tier X:

- Torpedoes changed:
-- Maximum damage increased from 4,233 to 5,067;
-- Flooding chance increased from 33% to 42%.

After recent changes, Midway was slightly weaker compared to other ships. The increased damage will increase the efficiency of torpedo bombers , and Midway itself will become more competitive.

American cruiser Salem, Tier X:

- Action time of the "Surveillance Radar" consumable increased from 25 to 40 s.

This change will increase the efficiency of Salem in combat and help her to better deal with destroyers and control key positions on the map.

German battleships:

- Ellipse of main caliber gun shells dispersion is adjusted to the settings of the American and British battleships. (German BB Sigma increased to 2.0)

This change will increase the accuracy of all German battleships and make the playing experience more comfortable.

Change to upgrades:

- "Hydroacoustic Search Modification 1" can now be mounted on any ship starting from Tier VI, equipped with "Hydroacoustic Search" consumable.

Now this modification can be mounted on German battleships.

British cruiser Hawkins, Tier V:

- Detectability range by air increased from 6.36 to 6.44 km (Running Change)

In some cases, Hawkins' detectability range by air was less than its AA defense action zone, so it was increased.

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

Took them this long to notice, but finally some justice. 💪

Finally German BBs get some love. They have been power-creeped quite a bit.

Also the Houshou change is a nerf not a buff.

Yes, nerf Hosho to oblivion now. Please do. Then no one will play CV. Excellent.

I would actually increase range of german secondaries but whatever. BTW, sigma of 2.0 means nothing if the dispersion is still legendary.

Minimal buff, IMO

There is multiple problem to the powercreep, Accuracy alone is not the only problem.

 

American and British Battleship dispersion formula actualy not the panacea for Germans. the US BB have those great -11% dispersion from Artillery Plotting Room Mod 2 with 1.9 or 2.0 Sigma. also British Accuracy not what I would call stellar, but they spam mostly HE so its not realy noticable that British Dispersion is kinda garbage IMO (esp with lame short fuze shell)

 

its Great news to hear the buff sure, Wehraboo will be pleased - but actualy I dont think its  as amazing as it sound

Previously they have like 1.7 or 1.8. It was horrible.

Change won't make much difference but......

I swear they edited it. On Facebook too. 2.0 may be too much but the sigma needs to be buffed.

I don't know where you got the sigma buff from - I can't see that in the official announcement at all, it only says that they are changing the dispersion formula.

Incidentally, the formula will be changing from the current German/French/Italian BB formula of 66m + 9.8R, to the British/American BB formula of 60m + 10R.

This means a dispersion improvement at 10/15/20km of 4/3/2m, or 2.5 / 1.4 / 0.8%.  It's an improvement, but you're unlikely to actually notice it.

 

Hosho change is a good one, although doesn't solve the main problem at the tier.  The T4 CV problem is way bigger than Hosho atm.  We'll see though, if it significantly nerfs Hosho TB's (which are the main damage dealers for the ship), then it may cause a large dip in the population.

Maybe my mind was broken last night when I saw it on Facebook :fish_book: 

 

So basically they are not buffed enough. Need special heal or secondary range/accuracy or... Bias BB dispersion gimmick or something. This is clearly not enough.

I think they need more buffs.  I personally wouldn't buff the guns any more than they are planning, the ships are designed as brawling ships but (unlike VMF BB's that do a similar role) they are too vulnerable when pushing in.

I would suggest close range survivability buffs would be better.  I'd personally give KM BB's 30s fires instead of the 60s of all other BB's.  It would make for a nice unique trait that would help them significantly in their designed role.

Note I don't play KM BB's or like the line very much, but I understand that many do and the line deserves to be balanced and fun.

I would love a Saipan buff, it's currently my favourite CV in the game.

I would be very hesitant to buff it though, if you are good at plane management the ship is extremely powerful right now.  I think any buff may start pushing the ship into the OP category.
