WoWS: Changes to test ships and Super carriers, and the Connecticut concept test — 0.11.4 Closed testing

Based on testing results, we’re applying changes to Mecklenburg, Iwami, Patrie, United States, Eagle, and submarines. American Tier X battleship Connecticut will also return for further testing.

Main battery reload time increased: 25 to 26 s.

IX Iwami

Torpedo range increased: 12 to 20 km.

These torpedoes are similar to the ones carried by Shimakaze
Their reload time was increased: 120 to 150 s.

  Patrie

Reload time for 100 mm secondary guns increased: 1 to 1.5 s.
Removed Combat Instructions activated by F key
The characteristics of the Engine Boost consumable have changed:

Speed bonus increased: 8% to 15%
Action time reduced: 180 to 120 s.

Submarines

Maximum distance from an undetected enemy submarine at which its own ping emission effect could be displayed is reduced to 1 km.

  United States

Tactical attack squadron preparation time increased: 150 to 175 s.
Tactical torpedo squadron preparation time increased: 150 to 195 s.

  Eagle

Tactical attack squadron preparation time increased: 150 to 175 s.
Tactical torpedo squadron preparation time increased: 240 to 275 s.

X Connecticut

Connecticut is an analogue of the Tier X American battleship Vermont but with improved acceleration dynamics and stronger armor.
