Had a thought and it made me a little sad.

Just having a thought that, with the introduction of the Thunderer that a second British BB line which focuses on AP instead of HE is sadly no longer possible. With the split heading off from the old Queen Liz you could have had the Hood at tier 7, The Vanguard at tier 8, a 'WG Special' at tier 9 and the Thunderer (which is pretty much a WG special since the Conq didn't exist) at tier 10. We're missing literally 1 ship in order to make a full second line that is about good AP accuracy and not just spamming HE with terrible accuracy (looking at you Lion....)

Ah a British man can dream...sadly such things will never come to pass.

 

Much like my idea for the Indomitable at tier 6 as a 460mm armed BB (don't worry people it has 2 of them) with cruiser accuracy and good secondaries but...well it's got 2 main guns...

And want some more sadness?

 

WG could have split the US BB line too and given us an alt line based on secondarys and brawling. Instead they went for the cash cow route, and gave us Massy, Georgia and Ohio, with California to come.

 

I know the US had lots of other BB's but I think the prospect of a split US BB tree has sailed.

I'm not sure that it does, or at least not for the reasons stated. Thunderer is just down to WGs current fad for 18 inch gun ships as a resource sink. An AP focused line, however, would probably be just a bit too much at higher Tiers.

I'm still moderately hopeful (read blindly optimistic) that they might introduce a second branch of British BBs based on the battlecruisers which will rely on speed and good guns with proper AP but naturally suffer in the armour department requiring good angling. 

 

Only down side is from tier 8 onwards they would have to be paper but hey it would at least mean we could potentially get a version of the Hood but post planned refit.

Why doesn't wargaming do this in general? Yes i know about Money but they could of just made some ships up for those premiums at tier 9 and 10 giving them unique loadouts or even featuring ships that wouldn't fit in the tech trees at all.

 

You could even have two DD, CV and maybe another CL or CA line.

 

Could of done this with the other nations too even if the ships didnt exist.

 

I don't know i just like things to make sense from a progression sense of view.

Looking at the mock up expanded British tech tree that reminds me what has happened to the DD HMS Anthony, she not coming back ?

Ah yes you were correct, my bad, it was indeed the Furious. Yeah it is basically a way of instead of including alternate playstyles for a line as silver ships, they put it in as premium ships instead. I know a lot of people weren't happy with the fact that the RN was reduced to HE spam mobiles and an alternate AP focused Branch would have gone a long way to that. Heck we could have, by now, at least 1 German super-cruiser/battle cruiser line starting from tier 6 with the Graf Spee, tier 7 the Scharnhorst etc.
