hey there support lead me to this im not a fan of forums because my topics are bound to be ignored but i give it another go.

also i hope im in the right section of the forums because i allways loose my self in these websites anyways here we go...

 

my sugguestion was to add The RMS Olympic as a Premium tier 2 cruiser

in may 1915 RMS Olympic was requisitioned by the Royal Navy for moving troops

the royal navy mounted 12-pounders and 4.7-inch guns on her(i dont know if she had other inch guns or how many she had mounted tho)

this is why i would love to see The RMS Olympic being revived into World of Warships.

he's Absolutely Huge. she got upgraded with double side hull & Reinforced Bulkheads

& best of all the Mikasa finaly would have some competition besides fighting him self:)

the Olympic might not have the armor as the Mikasa but she has the Speed of 24 knots.

 

my opinion she would absolutely fit in the world of warships community.

she will fight for the name of the White Star Line:)

 

so please leave a comment of your thoughts of having the RMS Olympic entering the Investive Waters of World of Warships

if you're interested to comment the thoughts personaly to me instead, i stream on twitch every night.

She's a transport ship, not a warship.

 

Those couple self defense guns - 76mm and 119mm - that she was given... By the caliber alone you can see she barely stands up to DDs.

And the hull & bulkhead upgrades you mention - those were civilian post-Titanic upgrades learning from that ships mistakes, not any kind of armour plating. She never had anything that could actually be called armour.

 

Even as a tier 1 it still wouldn't work

everyship that's been mounted with a gun is called a warship even if it's been used for troop transport.

secondly. the size would give her the chunc of health. heck ill bet 50 dollars she can fight in world of warships :)

This is never going to happen so there's no point even entertaining this idea. Using the cruiser HP formula she'd have around about 107,000 HP. That's more HP than Großer Kurfürst, at tier II. Not in a million years will RMS Olympic be a tier II Premium Cruiser, or any sort of Premium ship. I've seen some bizarre ideas on this forum over the years and this is right up there.

she doesnt have to get 107K HP formula, she can have the same HP as the Mikasa at tier 2.

wg havnt made her & she's not on wg's blueprint so anything can happen with the Olympic. but she would look glorious. & a Glorious Battering Rammer:)

 

i see the point of entertaining in this. but haters like you allways have to ruin it for anybody else isnt it?

@Mighty_Mograine I love your suggestion. But I agree, she was a transport, built to civilian specs and hasn't really any place in this game. If she was hit by a torpedo then she would nose dive.

However, there are a whole host of true "Auxiliary Cruisers" that you could select, both German and British. Some of which are extremely well known in history as raiders (Thor) or as escorts (Jervis Bay). These could be placed in game in context.

Yet history shows that there was only one result in one of these meeting a warship, one auxiliary cruiser sunk. Of course there were exceptions HMAS Sydney and German auxiliary cruiser Kormoran - didn't end well for either!

The actual effect of your suggestion winds up with something like the (non player) liberty ships in some of the operations currently in game.

You might have something that was fun for 5 minutes and something for collectors, but I wouldn't spend any real money or XP on it.

The Olympic could take flooding since the ship has so many bulkheads even if it breached the double hull.

the titanic for example could float with 5 compartments flooded. but because there was a confirmed fire between the 2 coal hoppers. the bulk head was weakened & bend between Boiler room 6 & 5. if that wasnt caught on fire. the titanic was infact still afloat till today as a museum perhaps.

& i did the math my self & 1 expert documentry him self aswell...

so you can't tell me im lieing.

 

But! that's just the flooding from the bow to Boiler 6

if the torpedo hitted sepereratly example a  japanesse destroyer could drop 4 to 6 torpedo's.

spreading it out through the chambers of the Olympic's upgraded hull. & reinforced Bulkheads.

6 compartments flooded spreaded evenly by torpedo's is confirmed that the titanic can survive.

however she will  sink when there's 9 compartment's are flooded spreaded even through out the ship. because that's her official the point of no return

 

i did all the math & looked through the invesigation's & the past my self before i post it in the forums

heck i even have my own Titanic model hanged on my wall in the back of my livestream.

it is possible having the Olympic in the game as a Proud Warship. & like i said before, every ship that get's mounted guns on her deck becomes a Warship even if her role was being a troop transporter or cargo carrier. also Cambelltown has 3 gun turrets & 2 torpedo turrets & peoples still fight with her while she barely can fight.

so it doesnt matter how many guns the Olympic carried. peoples will play with her & that's my point there why i sugguest the Olympic.

 

 

PS: i still bet my 50 dollars that she can fight.
