World of Warships British Battlecruisers

Publisher and developer Wargaming has kicked off Update 0.11.6 for its naval military free-to-play game World of Warships today. The newest patch is now available for download, bringing a barrage of new British battlecruisers to early access, improving U.S. destroyers models, and introducing a new limited-time event.

The entirely new branch of Tier III to Tier X British battlecruisers feature ships equipped with powerful torpedoes and repair party consumables that help with regenerating HP lost in firefights. Fans of British warships will see some familiar historic vessels, such as Tier III Indefatigable and the Tier VI Renown. Coming with them are five new project ships: Tier VII Rooke, Tier VIII Hawke, Tier IX Duncan, Tier X St. Vincent, and Premium Tier VII Collingwood with their unique camouflages.

After Wargaming improved the first wave of U.S. Destroyer models, the devs are revamping additional ships in Update 0.11.6. The second wave will bring adjustments to defense composition, HP distribution, and the positioning of torpedo tubes and battery guns. Players will see these changes for U.S. Destroyers Sims, Sims B, Sampson, Wickes, Clemson, Nicholas, and Farragut.

And it wouldn't be a new patch without an event of some kind, so Wargaming introduced the limited-time "Titan of Industry Event" for this update. It'll be similar to past events like "Clash of Courage" and "Battle of the Beasts," except this event has players choose between three British dockyards: Chatham, Elswick, and Clydebank to support. The dockyards each give different rewards, a unique commander, and exchangeable British tokens used to gain the new ships in early access or permanent camouflages. Players will have until August 10 at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time to try out the event.

You can find more information on Update 0.11.6 from the World of Warships dev blog.
