New Ship of the Update  

British Tier VI Premium battleship Resistance


High speed (with Engine Boost available!), rapid reload, and turning torpedoes: Resistance is very well-rounded! This battlecruiser is great for waging warfare over medium distances.

Balance Changes

This update is light on balance changes, except for a notable change to Salem. She has been ruling the seas at Tier VIII and has earned a nerf to her damage output and survivability.


  • Main Battery reload time increased from 5.5 to 6.5 s
  • Armor plating for casemate sides reduced from 30 to 27 mm thick
  • Conning tower armor improved from 102 to 140 mm on the roof and reduced from 165 to 160 mm on the sides

Based on your feedback and stats during the open test of Anchorage, her stats were changed prior to the release:

  • Main Battery Reload Time improved from 15.5 to 14.5 s
  • 180-degree turret traverse time improved from 30 to 27 s

More changes to a variety of ships are coming in future updates, so keep an eye out!

  • "Extra" Bureau Points (over 3,500,000 threshold) are now converted to credits, with 1 Point equaling 1 credit. 
  • The ship carousel UI in the Port, like the Ammunition, Consumables, Upgrades, Camouflage, and Boosters sections in the ship focus screen, has been reworked.
  • Slightly changed the barbette armor for the following ships: Myōkō, Southern Dragon, Eastern Dragon, Georgia (including W version), Scharnhorst (including B version), Minotaur, Tiger '59.
  • For the Halloween event and Versus AI battles only, Divisions can now include up to five players.
