Bonjour Matelots (or those of us still here after the PR fiasco)
Lots of changes coming over the next two patches. 0.9.0 doesn't look too bad especially with British heavy Cruisers in early release (be aware though that bundles you can buy with tokens you earn or with doubloons do not guarantee that you will get a ship out of them).
Bigger changes (currently in supertesting) may be coming down the pipe in 0.9.1 in regard to new/replacement upgrades: see here https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/209248-st-upgrades-changes/. One cause of contention is introduction of a Torpedo Protection that guarantees detection of torps at 1.8 km which some see as a huge nerf to DDs (and especially those with previously low detectitability torps like the Pan-Asian DWT torps: together with nerf to torp reload my beloved Chung Mu will be a port queen): see here https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/topic/129653-huge-dd-nerf-might-be-coming-for-patch-091/
Anyway - just a heads up
