Updated 7/22: We had a new small update to the Public Test.
Note: If you've downloaded the Update and see "The data obtained from the update service is incorrect."
You will need to uninstall your Public Test Client, and perform a full reinstall. We're working on the issue, thank you for your patience.
Since the earliest versions of the game, Cooperative Battles existed as a lighter version of Random Battles. Despite the casual manner of these PvE battles (or perhaps because of it), a lot of you have enjoyed playing against bots, cooperating with other players rather than competing with them.
The future of Cooperative Battles considerably depends on the feedback that we will receive from you. Don't hesitate to let us know what you think about Assault!
To help you overcome great challenges in PvP and PvE, we have added built-in voice chat for easier communication when in a Division.
Enable voice chat in the Sound options menu.
The visibility system, spotting ranges, and how smoke screens conceal your movement were sometimes difficult for Players to to fully understand. For this reason, we've made a couple of major changes to the visibility system, with the overall objective of making it clearer to Players.
This is intended to make gameplay more enjoyable, as both beginners and more experienced players who would habitually pick the Situation Awareness Skill for all their ships can now focus on other Skills instead. The rules for compensation are as follows:
If the smoke screen is being set while the ship is in motion and enemies are straight ahead or to the side, the ship will always be spotted according to the following rules:
As part of Update 0.5.9, in-game models of both the U.S. Battleships and the British Premium warship HMS Warspite were refined. In some cases, this led to a redistribution of the inner part of the ship's durability points (within a 5% limit).
We've also improved the details of bevels and lines, creating additional conditions for AP shells to ricochet in some situations, especially when they hit the bow or stern of the ship. Armor interaction with HE fragmentation shells and bombs is not affected.
