I am well aware that WG are saying that they will not introduce battlecruisers as a separate class, however, there is still scope for including them in the game as fast battleships in the lower tiers, currently there are many famous ships excluded because WG are virtually ignoring this class of ship.   I would have included Goeben under the Turkish name in the first part of the poll as well but you can only have 20 options in multiple choice.  I would really like to see at least all the historic ships and possibly those that were laid down but scrapped under the Washington Treaty clauses (have also included 2 Alaska's but they are really large cruisers)

You are trying too hard to become a WG employee.

 

Just a heads up, you would have to move.

You can remove Prinz Eitel Friedrich as it is already coming.

Why no G3's?

G3 class battlecruisers are not included because they were never given names.  I have only included ships that were actually given names (i.e. laid down)

I'd like them to make it a sub-class of BBs going from TIII to Tier VII.

 

RN would be Inflexible, Queen Mary, Lion, Tiger, Renown

KM would be Von Der Tann, Seydlitz, Derfflinger, Mackensen, Gneisenau (I'm sure there's a "proper" KM BB design somewhere to go between Bayern and Bismarck.

L 20e α class[edit]

Main article: L 20e α-class battleship

The L 20e α design was a plan for an unknown number of battleships to be built in 1918 for the German navy. The design was selected on 2 October 1917, and construction was to have started 11 September 1918.[67] The ships would have been significantly larger than the preceding Bayern class, at more than 50 m (160 ft) longer than the preceding ships.[68] The ships would have been the first German warship to have mounted guns larger than 16 in (40.6 cm cm). However, Germany's declining war situation meant that the ships were never built.[67]

Ship Main guns Displacement Propulsion Service
Laid down Commissioned Fate
L 20e α 8 × 42 cm (17 in)[67] 48,700 t (47,900 long tons)[67] 4 screws, steam turbines, 26 kn (48 km/h; 30 mph)[67] Design study only[67]

Queen Mary, Seydlitz, Goeben and Lexington for me.  The first three are ships with a story to tell, and it would be interesting to see the Lady Lex as she was first envisaged.

 

Great survey ! :cap_like:

By the way the German High Seas Fleet prefix for most ships should be "SMS" , simply because the Kaiser liked to copy naming habits from the Brits. 

 

Edith: For anybody wondering: "Seiner Majestät Schiff" instead of "Her Majesty's Ship" ...

All would be good, but how do you make those in the same class unique and worth having.

 

Besides not making them a separate class, I'd really like WG to be consistent in how they bring BC's into the game. We have BC's classed as BB's and we have BC's classed as cruisers. Just make them all the same class.

What?

This slot was originally filled by Prinz Eitel but that ship is already coming to the game, therefore, the slot is now filled by USS Phillipines (an Alaska class cruiser)

Interesting poll, good to see this. 

 

In the first category, so far Seydlitz and HMS Repulse stand out as the ones with the most votes (7.61% and 7.07%, respectively). 

In the second category, USS Saratoga takes the lead (at 7.5% now). 

 

I was surprised to find out that the above 3 (to each of which, amongst others, I gave my vote) are actually the most popular ones atm. 

Already looking forward to the next poll (perhaps one for the now officially announced Pan European tree?)...

Well, the Number 13-class is technically a Battlecruiser right? :fish_cute_2:

I'd enjoy having one.

And there's something to be said about having the IJN Haruna as a... what was it again? Tier 6? 7? Premium. Or even as a techtree ship in an alternate BB branch.

 

Also Design 1047 might be nice.

ARP Haruna already here at tier 5

Design 1047 had no name so not included

Which is why I specified IJN, not ARP. ;)

And I meant as its refitted form (1944?) rather than what we have in the game as the Kongou.
