Ships lost in testing

Hi,

 

I was thinking if anyone remembers what ships were tested and showcased but never released after that - and may be coming soon(tm), or whenever the developers deem it OK. Top of mind, I can remember Leone (Italian DD) and the Austro-Hungarian ship (Viribus Unitis). I guess we'll soon add the Brit CV to the list (it was probably meant to be released with the rest but never made it out of testing). Anything else I forgot?

I'm not counting Georgia or the alternate T10 RU BB, as these are arguably still in testing. This is more about the older ones (Dec/Jan)...

Any thoughts?

 

Happy hunting.

Viribus-Unitis. Probably locked away to be a reward-ship of some sort.

Mabe they put her on hold for the time being inorder to figure out how to implement her, since on T4 she was strong and on T5 she wasnt, players dont want her T5 and wg dont want her on T4 (fearing another nikolai) :cap_hmm:

I think WG put it in reserve until they decide if they go for a pan european nation or not.

Yeah, it's also easier create from scratch an entire paper ship tree than putting real ships..

The Brit CV is not dead.. she is still being balanced... I have her in port at the moment.. Be happy WG want to get her balanced before release. So we dont have a repeat of the Graff Zeppelin fiasko  .

I wouldn't want anything interesting at tier 4, but for different reasons. As long as we can't even complete any missions with below T5 ships all that would somewhat go to waste in the big scheme of things.

I understand you point but VU is a ww1 era ship, so she'd be best next to Wyoming/Arkansauce & co, if she's T5 they may retrofit her a'la Bayern witch would totally be well, not tastefull so to speak. :Smile_unsure:

dont remember its name but we saw a Naval Legends about a French DD or CL that had missile mounted torpedoes (anti sub tho)... Sure she is not in the works but a semi carrier capability DD would be an interesting beast (my wallet would be open for her... eh WG? *wink wink*)

I think part of the problem is what they are balancing it in is also a WIP.

RIP Viribus Unitis. At least I didn't have to see it suck. I really don't miss it if it means I don't have to watch that trainwreck.

As long as they balance here on the same level as Enterprise. Otherwise why bother buying her :Smile_coin:
