Hi fellow captains,

Hope this tread finds you well and you are enjoying the usual  storm of weekend games :cap_like:

 

So im wondering, at the current time why there are absolutely 0 British/RNL premium cruisers to choose from and purchase? I mean I know the Belfast was a little controversial, some saying it was totally op with radar, some saying even their  guide dog could play it... Whatever the problem was its never going to return according to WG. (cheers for the chance for completing my country's collection by the way).. the last time I saw anyone so traumatised by their own creation was probably...

 

yBzeCSB.gif  aaaaand we all know how that turned out....

 

....so why is it that pretty much all nations have some sort of premium cruiser to choose from?

To name but a few...

Japan = 3

Atago, Yubari + Katori

 

USA= 2

Albany

Indianapolis

 

Germany = 3

Graph Spee

Emden

Prinz Eugen

 

U.S.S.R. = 7

jYRnSMT.gif  7?!! (surprise surprise:Smile_sceptic:)

 

Aurora

Molotov

Varyag

Diana

Oleg

Krasny Krym

Kronshtadt (free xp only granted but....)

 

UK = 0

Errr is this a Brexit thing or something?

 

Even Pan Asia has one !!!

 

Pan Asia = 1

Huan....Huuang...Hu...oh you know.. that one

 

Now I haven't even bothered to find the ones that have been and gone and no longer avail, maybe someone has the info but that does seem a tad strange no?

So WG what gives? Because last time I looked you weren't short on a few to choose from are you?

Id like to help with that......

Now there are some REAL ships in there not paper ones so....Personally I would like to see the HMS Spartan/Dido given the premium treatment but...(cool name too)

 

Spoiler

Guys what do you think on this? If we were to get a couple what would you like to see? Obviously the Belfast with every consumable out there isn't the way to go so....

Perhaps follow the current lines attributes but perhaps something with HE for a change?

 

But whatever it is Please WG, Pretty please with a fracking cherry on top....give me something because as a crusier player im realy tired of all the Prmium BB'S and DD's that are coming out in droves ATM.

 

Many thanks for your time and comments guys as always,

 

Wolf.

Dido would definitely be fun and a premium colony class would be popular - the Prinz Eugen to Hipper compared to a Fiji?

I too have a Belfast! Trying to make sure I have every British ship - including those built for other nations - Mikasa, Albany and the other destroyers

I would love to see a Dido-class in the game, along a similar concept to the Atlanta. I'm not saying I'd necessarily buy it – I'm coming to the conclusion that cruisers aren't really my thing – but I might it it could be viable with a DD captain. That class really should have 'make me a premium' written all over it from WG's perspective, so I hope they make it happen. *hopeful face*

Japan = 5

Atago + Yubari + Katori + Yahagi (incoming) + Azuma (incoming) 

 

USA= 11

Albany + Indianapolis + Boise + Salem + Alaska + Wichita + Atlanta + Marblehead + Marblehead Lima + Charleston + Flint

 

Germany = 3

Emden + Graf Spee + Prinz Eugen

 

Italy = 2

Duca D'Aosta + Duca Degli Abruzzi

 

Pan Asian = 2

Huang He + Irian (incoming)

 

Commonwealth = 1

Perth

 

France =1 

De Grasse

 

Pan American = 1

Nuevo De Julio

 

Russia = all the cruisers

Lazo (incoming) + Kutozov + Stalingrad + Krondshtadt + Oleg + Varyag + Krasny Krym + Molotov + Makarov + Murmansk + Diana + Diana Lima + Aurora

 

Britain = 0

Despite the fact that they have the Arethusa and Town Class CLs modelled. Not that we're cross about this. At ALL. 

 

Guys what do you think on this? If we were to get a couple what would you like to see? Obviously the Belfast with every consumable out there isn't the way to go so....

 

AA Cruisers - Tier IV, Carlisle, Tier V Delhi, Tier VI Arethusa - these would be HE focused with higher tier guns but RN DD gun arcs, big loopy things like Atlanta

Standard cruisers: Tier V - Arethusa (3 x 2 x 6 inch, Emerald torps), Tier VI Exeter (3 x 2 x 8 inch, RN DD smoke) , Tier VII - Sheffield, Smoke or Radar, not both

... maybe you should leave Italy out of the comparison. I'm not sure "having a full techtree but no premium" is worse than "having a couple premiums and absolutely no techtree"...

Not bad enough. There're still 2 Bogatyr class and one Pallada class protected cruisers that could be added as premiums. Surely these are a higher priority. :cap_tea:

We still need a Tier 4 Premium, just to complete the Premium Techtree of Russia. Even though Makarov and the Tier 3  vessels are crap.

 

WG should just stop considering Commonwealth as an independent nation...

Yes, that name please, as a T4 so we can have divisions or face-offs like this:

MV5BZWZlZGMyYzktODMwZS00NjllLWIwOGYtOGNi

 

On a more serious note, a Dido-class in the AA role or Kent-class' HMS Suffolk as a testing for RN CAs (WG could even copy-paste it in order to make HMAS Canberra) would be nice additions. Although the latter would be a pretty odd one (even more than Atlanta was before the introduction of the USN CL line) without accompanying silver ships.

 

Salute.

Well, there's always the option to buy Belfast, like the rest of us did. :Smile_trollface:

 

Seriously tho, buy all premiums, buy even more xmas containers until the Belfast drops (assuming it is in the drop list).

The problem is that the only remaining actual Russian / Soviet cruisers are the Admiral Nakhimov class, and even WG aren't daft enough to go with a ship called Chervona Ukraina (Red Ukraine) at the moment. You could have Krasnyi Kavkaz, but that's Krasny Krym's hull with 4 x single Kirov guns, which sounds like it would be hopeless and OP at the same time.

In all fairness the British are not hard done by. We have 3 Destroyers and 6 Battleships as premiums.

 

That being said I'd happily pay for a HMS Norfolk

Welp just get a premium camo for Fiji and you have a RN "premium" that is actualy better than Belfast.

Also the polish don't have a premium cruiser yet either! :Smile_trollface:

 

Or just go with Perth and pretend commonwealth = RN (which WG won't admit)

Personally  hope for a RN cruiser split (at T1, i.e. first heavy on T2)) for heavy cruisers, but therefor we need a few Premums also ofc.

With slight modification could become the Spanish Canarias as well.
