I know we're a long way off of anything happening, we got the Russian CL/CA line split, the German CVs and probably Subs but I'm kind of curious as to what remaining lines could, feasibly, get a split. My personal thoughts are the following.

 

US BB line split:

The US still has a ton of Battleships not in the game, even some name ships like South Dakota. I'm curious what the difference could be. Unfortunately 'secondary specced brawlers' is taken by Resource/Premium ships in the form of the Massa, Georgia and Ohio (tier 8, 9 and 10). What would peoples suggestion be for the splits 'gimmick' or whether it needs one at all. I know NoZoupForYou made a video about it recently and I do agree I would like to see the New Jersey at tier 10 where the Iowa class really belongs. The Iowa class were very much equal to the Yamato. Perhaps have the West Virginia 1944 refit as the tier 7, South Dakota as the tier 8, (not sure for tier 9, I'm sure people have suggestions) and the New Jersey at tier 10. I'm just spitballing these though I'm sure smarter people will come up with better ideas.

 

RN BB line split/BC line:

Sadly unlikely as we basically have, much like the 'secondary specced brawlers' for the US, the 'AP focused BB' line I'd suggest for the RN has already been covered with various premium and resource ships (Vanguard, I'd personally throw a RN Georgia type affair with a Lion but with six accurate 457mm guns, and then the thunderer at tier 10). However I could see a split focused on the Battlecruisers of the royal navy.

 

Italians BBs:

Yup still long due...still no sign of them.  I'm assuming that there might not be enough material for a full line but I hope there is.

 

What other feasible ship lines do you guys think there is?

Russian battlecruiser line.
As a third cruiser branch of course.

 

I for one welcome our new quad 305mm turret TurboStalin overlords.

Well we had / upcomming

- RN CAs

- EU DDs

- RU Cruiser split

- German CVs

- Maybe something with BBs?

 

And then its still missing the Subs.... But something with BBs should happen, since we had everything else in the time being.

Comrades, we still have no line of super light cruisers!

 

We need to copy the Smolensk formula for all tiers

Well I d say:

1) US BBs to sniper line and brawler line, premiums are not necesserily a problem

 

2) RN BBs to BB line and BC line

 

3) KM BBd same as RN

 

4) KM cruisers to CA and CL

 

5) IJN cruisers same as KM

 

6) French cruisers to CA and CL lines

 

7) RM cruisers as well

 

8) Pan euro DDs to pure gunboat line

 

But ad gor nect is likely KM CVs then RM BBs

Russian CV, Russian BB line (snipers), Russian Battlecruisers, Russian Subs, Russian Torpedo Boats, Russian Hospital Ships, Russian Tankers..there are so few Russian ships which don't represent the mighty Russian Navy :Smile_trollface:

Captured Atlanta with russian quad 130mm everywhere?:cap_hmm:

 

US I think have enough destroyers to form second line, though they would be very similar to existing ones unless artificial gimmick would be implemented. BB line could have second "secondary" branch (Nevada, Pennsylvannia, California, SoDak class, Georgia, Ohio) but alas quite a few arrived as premiums or will soon arrive

So US bb line featuring

 

Tier 4: Florida class (USS Florida).

Tier 5: Nevada class (USS Nevada).

Tier 6: Pennsylvania class (USS Pennsylvania).

Tier 7: Tennessee class (USS Tennessee).

Tier 8: South carolina class (USS Washington).

Tier 9: Iowa class (stats changed to suit sec and brawling roles) (USS Wisconsin).

Tier 10: Montana Class ( USS New Hampshire).

 

US DD's, Another US tier 10 heavy cruiser maybe a minibranch from cleveland or something, US Supercruiser line.

 

Then the japanese with their extra ships as well, the russians for their BB's an actual light cruiser line with smolensks and other ships like a bb split and a supercruiser and bc line.

 

Britain with their numerous bb's and also bc lines, maybe a atlanta like split from the regular light cruiser line.

 

Germany probably, the rest i have no clue. Oh the french could get a battlecruiser line as well.

Russian super heavy cruisers

Russian ultra light cruisers 

Russian battleships

Russian carriers 

 

After that maybe they have the time to work on a USN DD split... 

 

Following that of course Russian submarine split

All these are quite probable and doable.

4) KM cruisers to CA and CL

 

5) IJN cruisers same as KM

 

6) French cruisers to CA and CL lines

 

7) RM cruisers as well

 

Quite questionable as there are very few real ships or designs available. Lot of those high tier ships should be just made up by WG.

8) Pan euro DDs to pure gunboat line

 

Actually you can had at least four of five Pan European DD sub branches. For example countries like Poland, Netherlands and Spain could easily provide their own subbranches, maybe even their own lines. If you add there Romania, Greece, Turkey, Portugal, Norway and Yugoslavia you can create additional subbranch, maybe even two.

 

Other possible splits are

  • US DD line split
  • RN DD line split
  • Another Soviet DD line split
  • French DD line split
  • IJN BB/BC split
  • German DD line split
  • RN CV line split
  • US CV line split
  • IJN CV line split

 

Yes, there is a LOT of options for DD line split for almost every tech tree.

First i would love to see Italian BBs.

Then some Japanese ships: Tosa, Yamashiro, Ise, Akagi(One of the most famous CV), Taiho...  Maybe to get the first Japanese brawling BB. (Maybe split japanese BBs and BC)

More PAN-European ships (WW1 era have a lot of potential)

 

Russians and  Americans(Alaska, Ohio, Georgia, Puerto Rico)(Soon California and FDR) got a lot of ships lately they can wait to end of the year.

Here, a split into normal cruisers and "Panzerschiffe" (Pocket Battleships) is more appropriate. Here you will find the Deutschland-Class and the D and P-Class Cruisers.

Rather than line splits, i think that we may see a new type of ship added - Frigates with a primary anti-submarine role.

 

It all depends on what the spreadsheets tell WG about the impact of submarines to the game.

I'd like to see the Japanese and German light cruiser for one, thanks to their respective high alpha damage/high HE penetration traits. I want a PROPER british heavy cruiser line, not the crap we have right now. I want to see a 203mm+ cruiser with British fuse times and angles damn it! I'm also morbidly curious about what Weegee will come up with for their Pan-Asian cruiser line.

I think you answered your own curiosity:

Soviet nuclear powered DD line with acoustic homing nuclear torpedoes and split with conventional torpedoes.

 

Soviet CV and CVN split with cruise missile armed maritime bombers.

 

Soviet submarine line with S-13 clones line spilt as superhero of socialism premium ships.

 

Oh and maybe just maybe: Regia Marina battle ship line somewhere around year 2025 when all soviet socialistic superhero ships has been milked to dry. :Smile_facepalm:

Maybe we could have something new for a change?

Not a split but launch of a new line already splited in 2 lines?

I am thinking about soviet glorious CVs. We could have one line with all burning thermonuclear HE and the other line with all citadeling AP. :cap_haloween:

There was definitely more real Regia Marina battleships than Soviet battleships so lack of material isn't an issue. Probably a problem of gameplay distinction.

Some real low-hanging fruits are:

* US, Japan and British CV's. 

* US and Japan BB's.

* Japanese CA.

 

All of these could largely use real ships. If you accept paper-to-steel ratio of something like Russian BB's, there's virtually no end sight.

 

I'd love an aviation-cruiser flavoured Japanese CA side tree with Tone, aviation-mod Mogami, etc.

 

US and Japanese CV line splits were hinted at already at CV rework's release, and the models already exist. You could easily do this with RN too (Illustrious and Malta are both unused in current line).
