Vaexa on reddit has already datamined the changes in patch 5.8 from the current patch, and they’re about what you’d expect to see. Still interesting, and the confirmation of a few new ships is always good. I’ll see about posting the current stats of those ones when I get a chance.
- Tier 3 premium German battleship König Albert added
- Tier 4 German battleship Kaiser added
- Tier 7 (premium?) German battleship Scharnhorst added
- Tier 7 premium USN cruiser Flint added
- Tier 9 premium USN destroyer Black added
- Placeholder data for ARP Takao added
- Ar 196C and Fw 62 spotter planes added
- Shell data for German battleships added
- Pretty much every cruiser in the game and a handful of destroyers had their armour models changed (no nerfs/buffs, just more detailed armour models). This is absolutely too much to document, and the changes shouldn’t be very significant gameplay-wise anyway.
- Yubari: HP buffed (18300 > 18700)
- Profintern: name changed to Krasnyi Krym
- Several ships got 360 degree arcs on their turrets, see table below
- Data added for Bastion gamemode buildings
Turret arc changes
|Minekaze||1, 2, 3|
|Tachibana||1, 4, 5|
- ARP Takao captain added
- ARP Gunzou captain added
- They changed the formatting on every line in the game because Lesta hates me
- Models added for new ships
- Models added for Bastion gamemode buildings
- Tons of swf files changed. Modders beware.
