The development team is constantly at work, updating and fixing the game based on your stellar feedback. There are some small changes coming to the game client.

Patch Notes 0.4.0.3

Main changes:

  • High tier premium ships have been added in the game: Tier VIII Japanese cruiser Atago and Tier VII American cruiser Atlanta.

Maps:

  • Changed map loading screen image
  • Fixed invisible barriers on some maps
  • Fixed visual artefacts on Two Brothers and Hot Spot maps
  • Fixed incorrect behavior of shells when fired at particular parts of the island on Islands map

Ships:

The following ships were added for testing purposes and are not available for purchase, but can be met in battle:

  • Diana – A protected cruiser with a powerful main caliber battery and multiple secondary guns.
  • Pallada – A classic protected cruiser of the end of the 19th and early 20th century. She has relatively good main caliber guns and multiple secondary guns. A sloped armour deck protects vital parts of the ship.
  • Marblehead – A fast scout-cruiser with torpedoes and strong main battery. She also has aviation equipment on board. Marblehead differed from other ships of her class by the location of her main calibre guns in turrets and casemates.
  • Cincinnati – A strong and fast light cruiser for her time. Besides multiple rapid-fire guns, she had strong torpedo armament and decent light anti-aircraft guns. She was also equipped to launch scout planes.
  • Tachibana – Small and relatively fast destroyer. For her size she had quite powerful torpedo armament. Her main battery consists of a few quick-fire, small caliber guns.
  • Sakura – The first destroyer fully designed in Japan. For her time she was fast with decent torpedo armament. Her main battery consisted of a few quick-fire small caliber guns.
  • Mikasa – The best ironclad battleship of the Japanese Navy during the Russo-Japanese war. It was very well balanced and had good ammunition, armor and speed for her time. However it was out-performed with the arrival of a new breed of battleships – dreadnoughts.
  • Reload times for dual purpose guns on Mutsuki (top configuration) have been decreased (they reload faster now).

Effects:

  • Fixed the incorrect displaying of the smoke from the enemy ships’ funnels
  • Fixed an error leading to the incorrect animation of the squadron takeoff in the event of aircraft carrier destruction
  • Fixed an error leading to an increase in water detail when the camera zooms out from the ship
  • Fixed the flashing of the tracers on low and medium graphics settings

Interfaces:

  • Fixed the error which in some cases led to the display of an incorrect system message saying an invite to the battle for the division was rejected
  • Fixed the error which led to the incorrect display of messages when modules have been critically damaged
  • Fixed the error which led to not displaying the message that Upgrades dismantling is available for doubloons
  • Fixed the error in the text messages displayed in the game

Other:

  • Fixed the error which in some cases led to a client crash when opening the chat channel
  • Fixed the error which in some cases led to a client crash when entering the battle
  • Fixed the error which set some graphics settings incorrectly when auto detecting the quality for low configurations computers
  • Map choice probability on the server settings have been slightly changed
  • Fixed an error which in some cases led to the ship staying in the battle indefinitely
  • Fixed an error for battles not finishing when bases are captured simultaneously in Standard battle mode
  • Fixed an issue which caused fly-off icons to not be shown after damaging AA systems of Russian & British ships

  1. Will everyone have access to the new ships or they’re just for super testers ?

    • you clearly didnt read the top line above the new ships announcement……

      “The following ships were added for testing purposes and are not available for purchase, but can be met in battle:”

    • Sounds really good, but just one tiny little ish thing … Would help if you could PLAY the Ruddy thing …

      Downloaded the game “World of Warships” Created an account, received confirmation and verified. Then started launcher, entered e-mail, entered password, Result = incorrect e-mail or password? Repeated but still got the same result. Then went to log in, on Wargaming web site, again the same result. After a considerable number of attempts, tried the confirmation address/verification e-mail … Result logged in. Created a “Ticket” which I’m still waiting on the answer to. So far I’m not amused …

  2. so 2 russian cruisers 2 Omaha-cruisers and various matsu-types as premiums? nothing too exiting yet.

    • yea, same thought here….

      are we supposed to be hype when we can drive 4x the same ship? (omaha, murmansk, marblehead, Cincinnati).

      boring!

    • No the DD’s are of the Sakura-class and not the mutsu-class, would be a bit funny to play on T2 with 2*4 Launchers.

    • The Tachibana belongs to either a class similiar to the Matsu class or the Sakura
      since it would be pointless to have 2 sakuras lets hope for one Tachibana-class

  3. Omg, Dasha and Palasha, they both fought at Port Arthur. Stepanov’s Port Arthur was one of my fav childhood books. :)

  4. Some famous names from the Russo-Japanese war 1904-05. Shame they are not going to be playable as the “pre-dreadnought” era is one of the most fascinating and a personal favourite. The Mikasa was a very much improved derivation of the British Majestic class, and can still be found preserved in Japan, the only existing “pre-dreadnought”. It was made in Britain too :-)

    • Well Aurora is fully playable and as for the rest… We shall see how they will get around :)
      On the other side there will be Mikasa for now, but I for one hope we shall succeed in bringing more of the classical pre-dreadnought era ships into game :) They just look so cool.

  5. Let me buy the new prem ships please, I want to spend the 35K gold I still got lol (na kidding, nice to see we’ll be getting new toys in the future, hopefully distant)

    • Mikasa is a Japanese word (place names usually for ships). The Chrysanthemum flower is the symbol of the Emperor and was present on it’s Bow.
      If you can find it, watch the 3rd season of the Japanese TV show “Saka no Ue no Kumo” or “Clouds Over the Hill”. It has probably the best naval battle sequence I have ever seen, the Battle of Tsushima. Taken from the view point of Akiyama Saneyuki, then a Commander and chief planner/tactician for Admiral Togo on the Mikasa. He was later to become an Admiral himself (he died of appendicitis aged 49 before the militarism of the 1930s).

      At no point did the Russian fleet get even close to giving any Japanese ship a “kicking” during that conflict.
      However the Hatsuse (sister ship to Mikasa) and the Yashima (a slightly earlier ship of the Fuji class, based on the Royal Sovereign class and also built in Britain) were sunk by mines laid by the Russian ship Amur.

      :-)

  6. just a headsup for everyone,
    the Diana is either one of the russian Pallada-class protected cruiser (1899) or a royal navy Eclipse-class protected cruiser (1895)

    the Pallada is either a russian Bayan-class armored cruisers (1906) or a Russian Pallada class protected cruiser (1899)

    the Marblehead is either a US Montgomery-class unprotected cruiser (1892) or a US Omaha class light cruiser (1923)

    the Cincinnati is either a US Cincinnati-class protected cruiser (1892) or a US Omaha class light cruiser (1920)

    the Tachibana is a IJN destroyer of the Tachibana class (1944) or the sakura class (1912)

    the Sakura is a IJN destroyer of the sakura class (1911) or the Matsu class (1944)

    the Mikasa well… is a IJN pre dreadnought battleship of the Mikasa class

    • thank you for clarification, i do hope there wont be another 2 Omaha-class CLs around.

    • My opinion:
      Diana – Eclipse-class
      Pallada – Bayab-class
      (-> the Aurora is a Pallada-class)
      Marblehead – Montgomery-class (C-9)
      Cincinnati – Cincinnati-class (C-7)

      Regarding the Tachibana & Sakura im not sure, although the Matsu class and Tachibana class were VERY (the Matsu had more AA in later modifications, the Tachibana wasn’t completed until the surrended – but 27,8kts for a destroyer seems to be VERY slow) similar so we will most likely see one Sakura class and one of the ohters. Im not sure if the Sakura class was the first design but i’m pretty sure its a japanese design.

  7. just woundering is there a fix on big race or is it supose to be in dark mode so u cant see ships as for some i myself find a bit distacting atnd at times hard to fire at ships

  8. just a little hint dear text autor.
    Scout plane… that word dosen´t exist.Know that because i know an american guy with whom i used to play
    RO2 and i used same word ingame to describe RECONNAISSANCE PLANE, he honestly didn´t had a clue
    what i mean.At least for all non-americans scout plane makes sense imao :D

  9. I have the Arkansas premium gift ship, is it a premium ship that also get 50% more credits, or does it have normal credit making?
    Because it feels like it gets normal credits.
    I assume that these two tier 8 and 7 ships have the +50% credits. Do they also get 50% more crew XP, like in WoT?

  10. FCK OFF WITH AIMBOOT RETARDS !!!! I hope you will have success as WOWP JEBEM VAM MAMU LOPOVSKU I RETARDIRANU

    • What on earth are you talking about? if AIMBOOT means aimbot then that problem was already patched out wasn’t it?

    • Aah the famous aimboot.. That really doesn’t exist anymore. Nor does the aim mod or autoaim or whatever you might call it.
      I also find it quite funny that zig-zagging cruisers or destroyers always shout AIMBOT when they are hit. Here’s a hint 7legion: when zig-zaggind, try not to be so predictable. You might, for example, want to try to steer to port a bit longer than to starboard. ;)

      And who are you to call anyone retarded btw?

  11. I Think i noticed that on the last kill of the battle sometimes we don’t get the bonus “achievement” ?
    It seems that the battle ends abrutly quick!
    It would be nice to see a last camera shot of the burning or sinking ship for a few seconds.
    :-)

  12. me … i dont know why once i conected but when i joined batle it disconected me again

  13. what you mean with mm? i saw the screan and team set up but then crash

  14. The Patch apparently ruins the performance of the game. For me and a couple of other people the fps just drop mid battle from 60 to below 20.

  15. Did you guys improve the client stability? i have constant FPS drops and lags.

  16. still you dint fix the problem with the full screen that is a shame

    I still have the problem when i swich to full screen on the settings the screen go black i can see only the mouse cursor.

    Pls fix this problem is very game breaking for the imerson. i play on resolution 1768×992. my graphic card is invidia GTX 750 TI.

  17. Error connecting server failed to connect to the server.Please try again later is all I’m getting at the moment while my friends are all happily playing on line. Also since the update the game will not shut down properly and just hangs. Will not close down via task manager either will completely lock up my computer resulting in a cold start. Worked fine yesterday sigh.

  18. Developers: could you use the same spectator system as in WoT where a leftclick goes to the next teammate and a rightclick goea back to the previous one.

    • If I remember this works already.
      FPS problems:
      -Try having your task manager open and monitor the RAM and Processor usage when you play and levels drop.Note: in some cases this may happen even due to a fluctuating internet connection.
      Connection:
      -Monitor the PING I have a good internet connection and I never have lag except if I have other downloads going which is to be expected.

  19. when will the game add the British ships and i cant see on the “Big Race” map i can only see my hud and chat

  20. I seriously can’t wait for this new update! But there are some things i hate.
    First of all i am stuck on the new york and i almost can’t pass to the new mexico , you know why?
    1st reason: Always falling on tier VII/VIII battles and always the 1st one to die (yay -_-) Note: FIX THE GODAMN MATCHMAKING
    2nd reason: I think that in WoWP and in WoT the vehicles aren’t that expensive (for an example: the new york already costs beyond 1 million and in WoT and WoWP the vehicles cost around 500.000) Note: I DON’T HAVE THAT MUCH COINS AND I DON’T GET PAYED A LOT EVEN DESTROYING 2 OR 3 GUYS! (in WoT and WoWP they pay you around 100.000 coins for destroying 2 or 3 guys)

    But enough of bad things, now i am gonna tell the ships WG should add:
    French ships (a missing link of navy also with the italians
    Royal Navy (If WG added Warspite, what about the others??)
    Soviet Navy (The soviet navy has not only those three prem ships!)
    German Navy (I am just saying)
    And to finish:
    Submarines
    From: German Navy, Soviet Navy, French Navy and…
    I don’t know, but just put the submarines, they are ships too -____-

  21. Hi, I have noticed a bug when I accept to make a Division or a Group of players and then I start or accept a Mission… The game just jam with an infinite waiting for time!
    Secondary I have noticed a big loss of normal connection or Lag during gameplay in battle… from 90 FPS to 350 very often.
    Especially in close combat at close range and zooming the nearest ship to fire: the game just jumps with frames like a stopping & go video!
    My graphics are just leveld at LOW in every detail: what can you do to fix it?

    Thanks a lot

  22. Hello, I understand why US carriers must be harder to aircraft equipment than the Japanese aircraft carriers. I should suggestions. For American carriers could improve flight control that instead of two squadrons of fighters and two squadrons of bombers could be a number of squadrons divided into two squadrons of fighters, one squadron of torpedo planes and dive bombers, one squadron. I would also like to draw attention to the mistake of the US aircraft carriers Lexington that the basic equipment of aircraft rid one squadron of fighters. Another thing is that to play in this configuration US aircraft carriers against Japondkým aircraft carriers in the evaluation and team battles the unequal struggle, because Japanese aircraft carriers have more letetek fighters, torpedo planes and dive bombers than the US aircraft carriers.
