Dasha Presents Update 0.7.5

[Update] World of Warships development team would like to apologize for the ambiguous wording in the 0.7.5 patch notes, as it may have caused some confusion regarding the bonus slots invoiced for replaced USN cruisers. We will soon add 1 to 3 slots for the players who had different combinations of said ships in their ports. So if you had pairs like Cleveland+Pensacola, Pensacola+New Orleans or New Orleans+Baltimore, you would receive 1 additional slot for any such combo.

With the release of Update 0.7.5, we're launching a new cycle dedicated to American cruisers.  As a starting point, we'll offer an upgrade of existing ships, and in the subsequent update, we'll introduce an alternative line of ships.

Principles of Ship Replacement

The general principle is "players will not lose anything".

  • A ship that has been replaced will remain available to the player (in their Port if she was purchased, and in the researched state if she was researched).
  • The replacement ship will be added to the player's account together with a ship slot (if the replaced ship has been purchased) or will become researched (if the replaced ship has been researched).
  • Replacement of modules will be carried out by means of adding similar modules for the new ship to the player's account, or by reimbursement of their cost in XP (added to the new ship) and credits.
  • For the replaced ship, her Commander's specialization will be changed to the ship of the corresponding tier in the standard branch. A new Commander with bonus XP will be recruited for the replacement ship.
  • If a permanent camouflage was purchased and mounted on the replaced ship, it will remain mounted on this ship and a new permanent camouflage (for the added ship) will be added to the player's account.

The game statistics for the cruisers Cleveland, Pensacola, New Orleans and Baltimore will be divided; the statistics for the ships' new roles will be gathered starting from scratch.

Please note! When Update 0.7.5 hits the live servers, all players will have a chance to complete the following combat mission: Play one battle of any type with Tier VI cruiser Pensacola to get 190,000 Elite Commander XP. This will allow you to easily redistribute the skill points of the Commander or retrain the Commander of the Tier VI Cleveland to the new ship. The combat mission will become available for completion until June 29. Please note, this combat mission is not visible in the mission list!

New Collection and New Campaign

Update 0.7.5 is not all about ships. We'll offer a new themed campaign and a collection that will be available in the game on a permanent basis.

Campaign "Hit Hard! Hit Fast! Hit Often!"

The story of the campaign will tell about the military career of the U.S. Admiral William Halsey. To complete it, you'll need ships of Tier VIII or above while some tasks will require U.S. ships of select types only. By completing tasks, you get a variety of useful rewards, including supercontainers given for accomplishing final tasks. Once you are through with the last task of the final mission, you get a unique commander called William Halsey with 15 skill points, talents and a commemorative patch.

In the game, William Halsey will boast the following skills, talents, and distinguishing features:

"Expert Loader" skill:

  • -75% (instead of -50%) to the reload time of guns when switching shell type.

"Expert Marksman" skill:

  • +3 deg/s (instead of 2.5 deg/s) to the traverse speed of guns with a caliber up to and including 139 mm.
  • +1 deg/s (instead of 0.7 deg/s) to the traverse speed of guns with a caliber above 139 mm.

"Hit Hard!" talent. After earning the "Confederate" achievement, Commander Halsey's ship gets:

  • -20% to the main battery loading time.
  • -20% to the service time of carrier aircraft.
  • -10% to the reload time of torpedo tubes.

"Hit Fast!" talent. After earning the "Double Strike" achievement, Commander Halsey's ship gets:

  • -10% to standard detectability (the value stacks if the "Double Strike" achievement is earned several times in a battle).

“American Cruisers” collection

The collection is quite large, offering as many as 48 items to collect. Including:

  • Stylized images of U.S. cruisers ranging from Here is the ship : usa : St. Louis  in 1907 to Here is the ship : usa : Des Moines  in 1948;
  • Historically significant American naval weaponry like the 152 mm Mark 16 twin turret or the M2 Browning anti-aircraft machine gun;
  • Medals of merit issued by the U.S. Navy like Medal of Honor or Silver Star Medal.
  • Patches (as collection items) such as machine gunner or radar operator patches.

Completing the subcollections will allow you access to a set of alternative color patterns for standard expendable and permanent camouflages for U.S. ships, as well an ability to fly a second flag on them. Each of the sub-collections will be dedicated to one type of ships only.

Collection SectionReward
Cruisers, 1900s–1930s A second flag on all U.S.A. cruisers
Cruisers, 1940s A second flag on all U.S.A. battleships
Main Battery A second flag on all U.S.A. aircraft carriers
Anti-Aircraft Guns A second flag on all U.S.A. destroyers
Highest Awards An additional color scheme for the standard camouflages of all U.S.A. cruisers
Orders and Medals An additional color scheme for the standard camouflages of all U.S.A. battleships
Combat Ratings An additional color scheme for the standard camouflages of all U.S.A. aircraft carriers
Other Ratings An additional color scheme for the standard camouflages of all U.S.A. destroyers

 

You can build your collection as long as you are "subscribed" for it, i.e. if the "Collect" button is activated on the collection screen. Should you decide to continue with a different permanent collection, your progress under the "American Cruisers" collection will be suspended until you press the above-mentioned button again. If the "Collect" option is enabled for this collection, collectible items will come in daily containers.


The US frenzy is by no means over at this point as next we’ll be launching the first part of a marathon of combat missions with the ultimate reward being the Tier VII Premium cruiser Here is the ship : usa : Indianapolis .

The majority of "American" containers will primarily be available as a reward for the successful completion of the marathon missions. In addition to the expendable "Stars 'n Stripes" camo, special and economic signals, they may contain combat missions which, once completed successfully, will bring Premium ships ranging from Here is the ship : usa : Sims  and Here is the ship : usa : Monaghan  to Here is the ship : usa : Atlanta  and Here is the ship : usa : Kidd  right into your Ports. The refitted researchable Cleveland and a corresponding commemorative patch can also be obtained that way. Each of the missions can drop out for you only once. If you already have any of the above-mentioned ships, you'll get a Commander slot and a bonus in credits. Please note that the combat missions for those ships will only be available in the period from June 1 till August 20, 2018.

More details about the conditions of the marathon will be available in an article on June combat missions.

Battle UI: Information

A new “Spotted” ribbon will now be available in the game. The new ribbon will be issued when you spot a ship that is spotted for the first time or gets spotted again after remaining undetected for at least 90 seconds of battle time. Campaign tasks will be adjusted accordingly: the "Be the first to spot X enemy ships" condition will be replaced with the requirement to score X "Spotted" ribbons. Any tasks already in progress before the update goes live will be completed automatically once the update is installed.

Adding to that, all players will now be able to see which type of bombs, AP or HE , is carried by allied and enemy dive bombers in a battle. The new icons will be visible in the game world and on the Minimap.

To make gameplay more comfortable, a locked target ship's orientation line will now be displayed on the Minimap. By aligning your own course line and that of an enemy ship, you'll be able to fire more effectively.

We have slightly enhanced lines on the Minimap to make them thinner and better suited for the overall battle UI.

Game Balance Changes

To improve the competitive advantages and overall combat efficiency against the other unique Commanders, Yamamoto Isoroku will obtain the following enhanced skills:

"Expert Marksman":

  • +3 (instead of +2.5) deg/s to the traverse speed of guns with a caliber up to and including 139 mm;
  • +1 (instead of +0.7) deg/s to the traverse speed of guns with a caliber exceeding 139 mm.

"Preventive Maintenance":

  • -45% (instead of -30%) to risk of modules becoming incapacitated.

Here is the ship : usa : Indianapolis ’ ability to mount the Surveillance Radar consumable with a 9.9 km reach turns this ship into somewhat of a unique representative of Premium ships at Tier VII. However, this heavy cruiser often lacks the agility needed to promptly respond to changing battle conditions. For that reason, in Update 0.7.5 the ship's rudder shift time and main turrets traverse speed will change, making this ship more maneuverable and more interesting to helm while remaining on par with the refitted U.S. heavy cruiser New Orleans:

  • The rudder shirt time was reduced from 9.1 to 8.4 sec;
  • The main turrets traverse speed was increased from 6.0 to 7.0 deg/s.

Bots in the "Ultimate Frontier" scenario had their stats corrected so that its difficulty level is more suitable for most players. 

Azur Lane Collaboration

Good news for players who are fond of anime! We're launching a co-project with Azur Lane, a mobile game popular in Asia. As part of this collaboration, seven Commanders with unique voiceovers will come to World of Warships along with three commemorative flags and an expendable camo. One of the Commanders that will stand at the helm of battleship Nelson and the Azur Lane expendable camouflage patterns will come as rewards for completing a chain of combat missions. The other Commanders as well as the commemorative flag will be available in the Premium shop.

Audio Improvements

The following new sound effects will be available after switching to the "High" and "Ultra" audio settings:

  • In the Naval Base port, we added the sounds of trains, cars, cranes and planes flying across the sky. Destroyer construction facilities will produce noise, too;
  • In the Philippines port, church sounds can be heard;
  • In the "Dunkirk" port, players will now hear the sounds of bomber aircraft flying by, and the distant sounds of bombings;
  • In the Black Sea port, we added sound effects for activities on the square;
  • In the Hamburg port, we've added sound effects for planes flying across the sky, churches and ships passing by;
  • In the Kronstadt port, we've added sounds to planes, fireworks and ships as well as seagulls flying up in the sky;
  • In the London port, fireworks and carousels will now also be audible;
  • In the Marseille port, we added sounds to the plane, church and ships;
  • In the Zipangu port, we added sounds to planes and ships;
  • Ships in the New York port will now produce sounds as well;
  • Added aircraft sound effects on the "Polar" map.

The "Low" audio setting has been further optimized to release even more resources. The maximum effect will be achieved for PC configurations running a 32-bit operating system with limited RAM resources. With this option selected, ship engines will be silenced and ambient sounds will be turned off.

The following unique permanent camouflages will come with individual sound patterns for the main and secondary guns, AA guns and ship horns:

  • Paris (Here is the ship : france : République );
  • Alldestroyer (Here is the ship : germany : [Großer Kurfürst] );
  • Hellcarrier (Here is the ship : japan : [Hakuryu] );
  • Galaxy (Here is the ship : usa : Des Moines );
  • Norma (Here is the ship : uk : Minotaur );
  • Zaya (Here is the ship : japan : [Zao] );
  • Aurora (Here is the ship : ussr : [Moskva] );
  • Flyfire (Here is the ship : usa : [Gearing] );
  • Blue Aster (Here is the ship : germany : Z-52 );
  • Rasputin (Here is the ship : ussr : Imperator Nikolai I ): the sound effects for this ship's AA guns remain unchanged.

An alternative background soundtrack is now available in the Kronstadt port.

Content Changes

Thirty-two new football-inspired patches will appear in the game. Stay tuned for news on our official website to learn how to grab those goodies!

We added a new starting symbol for patches, "Artillery", depicting two crossed cannons.

With the release of Update 0.7.5, the Soviet Tier IX cruiser Here is the ship : ussr : Kronshtadt  will be available for purchase in the game client for 750,000 Free XP.

"The Maid of Orleans" and "The Republic" permanent camouflages for battleships Here is the ship : france : Richelieu  and Here is the ship : france : Gascogne  will no longer be available for purchase in the game client.

Other Improvements and Fixes

We've rolled out a minor update to the Unsportsmanlike Conduct Prevention System. Now, when a player hit an allied ship, mirror damage will be inflicted on that player only after receiving an allied damage warning. Immediate infliction of mirror damage occasionally resulted in situations when a team lost two players at a time, which apparently didn't add to that team's chances for victory.

Smoke screens will now be visible from all distances regardless of graphics settings or hardware configuration. Previously, the rendering sequence applied to smoke screens could be broken, making any deployed smoke invisible in the binoculars view.

  • Fixed an issue which could increase a ship's detection range after launching the Spotting Aircraft before firing at an increased distance.
  • Fixed an issue which caused an incorrect display of an allied ship's movement when that ship was being followed by a player whose own ship had been destroyed.
  • Once a player's ship that is locked on by an enemy ship disappears from sight for more than four seconds, the target lock will be removed from that ship. Previously, the target lock would remain on the ship until a different ship is locked on, and would not get removed from the player's ship even if after getting out of sight for a considerable amount of time.

A new option is added for launching World of Warships from Wargaming Game Center. "Launch the game with default settings" will reset all the user settings applied to the game client before launching.

Added minor improvements to the models and textures of the following ships:

  • Here is the ship : ussr : Budyonny 
  • Here is the ship : uk : Leander 

In connection with the replacement of ships in the tech tree of U.S. cruisers, we are changing bot-operated ships in Operations as follows:

  • In the "Defense of Naval Station Newport" operation, the allied Pensacola will be replaced with Here is the ship : usa : Helena ;
  • In the "Ultimate Frontier" operation, enemy Here is the ship : usa : Pensacola , Here is the ship : usa : Cleveland  and Here is the ship : usa : New Orleans  will be replaced with Here is the ship : usa : Indianapolis Here is the ship : usa : Dallas  and Cleveland.

Minor fixes:

  • Changed icons for Premium consumables. Now, Premium consumables will be marked with an additional icon, making it more distinguishable from standard consumables.
  • An erratic notification stating that a hotkey for activation of voice messages is not set will not be displayed anymore.
  • Revised the wordings warning about inability to enter the battle when your Division includes an offender who is imposed a restriction to enter certain battle types.
  • Fixed the rarely manifested bug that caused incorrect launch of torpedoes.
  • Fixed incorrect display of the background in the flag selection window for Pan-Asian and Commonwealth ships.
  • Fixed the bug that made it impossible to switch to the Division chat when you create and join a Division during the battle.
  • Fixed the bug that changed the player's status in the system for prevention of unsporting conduct after a server disconnect.
