X PAOLO EMILIO

In the new test iteration, devs radically changed the concept of Paolo Emilio. Now it is a destroyer whose goal in battle is to conduct rapid torpedo attacks at close range. An “Exhaust Smoke Generator”, an “Engine Boost” which increases the maximum speed by 25%, and torpedoes that have high damage and quick reload, but a short range, will help her in her role. To play effectively, it’s important to choose a target, plan an attack route, engage, and retreat. It is worth noting that the Smoke Generator will only allow you to get closer to the enemy, but the action time is not enough to hide from the enemy ship when retreating.
The main-caliber guns still have a high salvo weight, but due to the long reload time, they are more of an auxiliary weapon.


Nella nuova iterazione di test, gli sviluppatori hanno cambiato radicalmente il concetto di Paolo Emilio. Ora è un cacciatorpediniere il cui obiettivo in battaglia è condurre attacchi rapidi di siluri a distanza ravvicinata. Un “Exhaust Smoke Generator”, un “Engine Boost” che aumenta la velocità massima del 25% e siluri che hanno danni elevati e ricarica rapida, ma a corto raggio, la aiuteranno nel suo ruolo. Per giocare in modo efficace, è importante scegliere un bersaglio, pianificare una rotta di attacco, impegnarsi e ritirarsi. Vale la pena notare che il generatore di fumo ti permetterà solo di avvicinarti al nemico, ma il tempo di azione non è sufficiente per nascondersi dalla nave nemica durante la ritirata.
I cannoni di calibro principale hanno ancora un elevato peso a salva, ma a causa del lungo tempo di ricarica, sono più un’arma ausiliaria.

X FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT

Devs decided to test an alternative concept of Roosevelt’s planes. Now there will be more aircraft per squadron, but no access to the “Repair” consumable. It will not change the efficiency of the carrier: AA damage will affect the number of planes, but the overall damage dealt by the carrier will remain almost the same.


Devs hanno deciso di testare un concetto alternativo degli aerei di Roosevelt. Ora ci saranno più velivoli per squadrone, ma nessun accesso al materiale di consumo “Ripara”. Non cambierà l’efficienza della nave: il danno AA influenzerà il numero di aerei, ma il danno complessivo inflitto dalla nave rimarrà quasi lo stesso.


  • Aircraft restoration time was changed:
    • For attack aircraft from 111 to 114 s
    • For torpedo bombers from 182 to 141 s
    • For bombers from 171 to 131 s.
  • Number of aircraft per squadron was increased:
    • For torpedo bombers and bombers from  8 to 14
    • For attack aircraft from 10 to 14
  • Number of aircraft on deck was increased:
    • For torpedo bombers and bombers from 8 to 21
    • For attack aircraft from 10 to 21
  • “Repair” consumable removed from all types of squadrons 
  • “Patrol fighter” consumable removed for attack aircraft.
