Update 5.5
Update 5.5 Wargaming Studios

World of Warships Blitz Update 5.5 is now available on all platforms. This new patch introduces four new commanders with skills that can help turn the tide of battle.

There are two new Japanese commanders in the latest patch for World of Warships Blitz. The first is Mitsuo Fuchida who has the Aerobatic Maneuver+ and Torpedo Bomber Expert skills. The former increases the return speed of all aircraft squadrons, while the latter reduces the arming distance of torpedo bombers, enabling them to drop the bombs closer to the target for better accuracy.

The second Japanese commander introduced in Update 5.5 is The Crimson Shogun. This commander is pretty balanced when it comes to offense and defense, thanks to Victorious Charge+ and Honor Seeker+ skills.

Yi Sun-Sin is a new Pan-Asian commander that specializes in ensuring that the enemy is completely destroyed. For example, the commander’s Exploit Weakness is a skill that increases damage done to enemy ships currently on fire.

The last new commander of the bunch is D. Miller. This American commander is best used for his defensive prowess, thanks to his Air Defense Expert+ and Recon and Surveillance+ skills.

New premium ships are also on offer in Update 5.5. This includes the German Tier VI Destroyer Karl von Schönberg, the French Tier VII Cruiser Toulon, and the European Tier X Destroyer Småland, among others.
