So you're telling me that the Pan-Asian Izumo and Martel are added into the game permanently? :cap_wander_2: 

Or are they event-only ships???

Update 0.9.0 will begin the British event arc with early access to British heavy cruisers.

Players will get British tokens for completing Directives, Daily combat missions and from Daily Shipments. These may be exchanged in the armory for random bundles. Four bundles will feature Tier V-VIII British heavy cruisers Hawkins, Devonshire, Surrey and Albemarle with the “Victorian White” permanent camouflage.

Other bundles will have camouflages, special signals, Coal, and other rewards. Besides bundles in exchange for tokens, there will also be bundles for Doubloons.

To celebrate the Lunar New Year, two permanent camouflages with special horn sounds were added for Wukong and Bajie. Siliwangi will get a Lunar New Year permanent Camouflage.

Lunar New Year containers will be available: they can drop Pan Asian premium ships, permanent camouflages for them, Doubloons, and other rewards.

The Arms Race mode — which has special pick-up zones which grant team combat buffs upon activation — is updated.

We’ve updated the buffs. Now they will also affect aircraft carriers’ squadrons:

  • Increasing the movement speed of ships or planes and increasing the rudder shift speed;
  • Constant HP recovery in percentage of the maximum HP for ships or planes;
  • Increased reload speed for main caliber guns and torpedoes, increased plane replenishment speed;
  • Increased ships’ and planes’ consumable reload speed.

All ships in the team will receive one buff level when a pick-up zone with a bonus is activated.

Besides that, the way buffs are displayed in the interface and the messages about getting them are updated, and areas with them are now marked by small buoys.

Also, the following improvements are made:

  • Southern Dragon, Eastern Dragon, and ARP ships are becoming premium ships. This means they will get increased credits earnings;
  • Additional content settings are updated. Now you will still get bonuses from a camouflage when you hide it. The standard permanent camouflage or — in case the ship doesn’t have one — the Type 5 camouflage will be displayed instead;
  • The armor scheme display in port is updated. Now more colors will be used to show different thicknesses, and new armor groups were added: the ship’s ends and torpedo protection.

+ PEU DD line

+ PEU DD line with the extreme version of German torps

+ ARP ships become premium with extra cred earning

+ Hiding camos still gives bonuses

The hype is too strong. I may be having arrhythmia.

Heh, the commemorative camo for British CA is only slightly more creative than the ones for Pasta cruisers. But why does that look like Igor camo for St. Louis?

And this time Wargaming Asia created the Clan Battle Combat Missions incident "as a counterbalance"...

About the ARP ships, I guess WG decided to rationalize the diffferent categories of "premium" and "special" ships. Maybe soon "Special" ships will be better defined as event special ships, testing and early access ships and T10 freemium ships which do not have baked-in improved economic coefficients.
