5.4.2 Patch Notes

This one will be out on the 12th, the exact time depending on your server region.

In short: buffs to Kirov and Saipan, and some kind of nerf (?) to Iwaki. Oh, and two previously completely unannounced and never even leaked premium ships are in the game client for testing! Uh… well, you could say that’s a bit of a lack of fanfare, isn’t it? Now, to the patch notes and pictures.


  • The ships below have been added to the game for testing purposes. They are unavailable for purchase, but players may see them in battles.
    • Tier V US battleship Texas
    • Tier VI USSR cruiser Molotov
  • Cruiser Kirov: Fixed an issue where the plating thickness had only 10mm instead of 13mm as it was specified in the description.
  • Cruiser Iwaki: Fixed an issue with the bombs’ damage being too high
  • Aircraft carrier Saipan: Reduced the area of bomb scatter during auto-attack to match the values of special attacks (with “Alt”). Bombers preparation time has been reduced to 3.5 seconds per plane. Changed reserve ratio for fighters preset: the ratio of fighters to bombers is 3 to 2.

Other Changes

  • Disabled “April Fool’s” event:
    • Disabled “April Fool’s” music and sound
    • Removed “April Fool’s” holiday ships with their crews and slots.
      If commanders from other ships were assigned to any of the event ships, they will be sent to reserve without changes to their specialisations after the update.
    • All players have entered the game during the April Fool’s event will be awarded with 4 new commanders, with a specialisations for starter ships of each nation (Hashidate, Erie, Orlan, Hermelin).
      Each commander will come with 3 free skill points at their disposal.

Molotov is just a Kirov-class, but at tier 6, not sure if her model’s any different from regular Kirov; Texas is a New York class, and since the current in-game New York is actually the Texas, I think she’ll basically be the exact same graphically, except for a different camo.

Hopefully the devs actually give New York her proper model once her sister ship is released.
