Hi everyone! Last Thursday we released Man the Guns and the 1.6 Ironclad Update and I am super happy to see how many people are playing it. We broke our records for concurrent players and monthly active players again :) It's also heartwarming with all the PMs and messages we have been getting from people loving the expansion, so thanks for that, it is always great to hear what people like (sub warfare seems to be a big favourite).

I usually share some telemetry on what is popular after a new expansion, and right now we can see that the expansion has made UK a lot more popular as well as Mexico. USA has always been very popular and also got a significant bump. The Netherlands is actually hitting some kind of backend bug for us so I cant see how popular it is yet!. The country losing out the most actually seems to be Germany with most of the classic democracies up in popularity. Next week I hope I can have details on what custom gameplay rules people use and such as well as what focus paths are the most taken :)


1.6.1 Patch
We have been busy listening to feedback and working on an upcoming 1.6.1 patch.
So far the WIP changelog looks like this:

GUI Change Highlight
Focus wise, ignoring bugs and such there have been a lot of people who think the naval gameplay is hard to learn so we have been working on improving UI here.

The task force composition editor was hard to work with, so we have made a new interface for it with a lot nicer flow:
upload_2019-3-6_16-42-11.png
The composition edtior is an important tool to reduce micro because when you set it up you can trust that the right ships get reinforced to your fleet if they end up with losses etc. Hopefully you will like this new iteration :)

We have also added a bunch more info at a glance to the ship entries:
upload_2019-3-6_16-59-12.png

We added the reinforcement fleet to the bottom bar to make it easier to manage your task force
upload_2019-3-6_17-2-9.png

We also improved the fuel indicator on fleets, so more barrels = fuel thirstier, and there is also an indicator if you seem to be doing something you shouldn't with your fleet, such as patrol with capital forces:
upload_2019-3-6_17-6-56.png

We plan to be working with improving area selection visibility, make it easier to clear mission areas and send all ships back to port, as well as feedback on what kind of missions are suboptimal for ships, improve tooltips (a bunch have already been improved) etc. We have also been working with making AI a bit more reactive to the player leaning heavily into mining or late game sub warfare as those require a bit more specialized builds. We'll keep you guys posted as the patch develops. Thanks for feedback and support <3

Tutorial videos
Finally, we have also been working on making 7 new tutorial videos which will help you ease in at the helm :) You can check them out here, and feel free to spread them around when you see people in need:
Here is a link to the full playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_3rLv22kp6QBVPGl0G-_NV4ITVGgUOb5


See you all next week for more updates on post release work and telemetry :)

The USA seriously needs a nerf. Haven't actually gotten my hands on the DLC yet, but everyone I've spoken to has said that the USA has been able to amass gigantic undestrictible fleets and they don't have to deal with Fuel shortages due to how much Oil texas provides.

Sir/Ma’am,
Will destroyers be made less useless against subs? Perhaps given some base hull sub detection?

Fantastic turn around time PDS!

Question - it was mentioned in the live stream that the new beta patch a reinforcement feature will IGNORE the icon type, and reinforce a fleet in the need of CLs, with any CL, regardless of the icon type (crab, turret, etc). Is this true? If so, please say that this is a short term work around until reinforcements in general are comfortable with the community. I loved specialized fleets and this would be a killer to me, having minesweepers go out for Strike Force Duty, or my pee-wee ultra low cost Escort DDs be allocated for fleet DD duty against the Yamato (well, it could drop a depth charge underneath the Yamato?).

I hope medium term plans make the reserve system work as a priority. Try to select the proper sub class ship if you can. Then make it optional per template to draw ANY ship.

"- Added 5 new German advisors that are available after taking Oppose Hitler, Revive the Kaiserreich, or Re-Establish Free Elections, if the player has the Waking the Tiger DLC." A Very nice and exciting addition!

The USA seriously needs a nerf. Haven't actually gotten my hands on the DLC yet, but everyone I've spoken to has said that the USA has been able to amass gigantic undestrictible fleets and they don't have to deal with Fuel shortages due to how much Oil texas provides.
The US can't build any faster than it did prior to 1.6. The continuing problem is that they can be a bit too strong early (and even more powerful if you really game the system), and they dont get a large enough ramp up after war entry. The USA still spends 2 years just to catch up to Germany's production.

Next week I hope I can have details on what custom gameplay rules people use and such as well as what focus paths are the most taken :)
I feel like you guys should hold off before this telemetry. Give people a month from release. There are so many different rules that it's going to take a while to figure out the difference between what looks appealing now versus what people actually become comfortable with and like long-term. That would be the more interesting thing to know, imo.

Do not know right or wrong, but AI does not deploy mine. And in late game submarines can easily sink convoy and escape safely, even the warships are attacked and tend to escape.

Really enjoying the DLC. Fuel usage and the improvements to naval combat are everything I'd hoped for! Looking forward to refinements to the systems and UI :)

I really enjoy playing as UK with the DLC, but the Federation Focus has a bug : I can not take it as Facist Britain, because it requires to be "fantoche reintegre" instead of "Reichprotecktorat" (I am playing with the french version, I don't know the english names ^^)
