New Tech Tree Lines

We are getting Ita BBs at some point. Anyone care to speculate when they might show up?

What about Ita DDs? Are there not enough of those to make a tech tree line?

What about Eu Cruisers? There must be a number of Cruisers that could be used here? A good smattering of several nations? Maybe even CL & CA Eu lines? Spa, Du, Swe, Nor, Gre, A-H (Austria-Hungary), Tur (Turkish), Por, etc

What about South American ships? could we not see something similar to an Eu Cruiser line? A smattering of different SA nations ships (BBs, Cruisers & DDs).

What about Commonwealth ships? Cruisers and DDs. Admittedly, this would be mostly UK ships along with some US lend-lease ones. it would be nice to see some more Aus, Can, NZ & even India ships.

I'd like to see all of the above tech tree lines at some future time.

Might some 'poohbah' from WG comment on when we WoWS peasants might see these tech tree lines?

Italian BB are almost ready but some of the Italian DD's are being spotted in hands of supertesters!

Euro cruisers I wish expect them much later or lets hope next year. Very good hope of a Teir X de Ruyter C801 cruiser

 

I am afraid we get russian CV first not sure why as they never had any what so ever.

Russia had a few float plane conversions so they 'sort of' did have a few CVs ( & we know actual RL never stood in WG's way)  :cap_haloween:

..... so Ita DDs 'soon' too?  Nice to know both of these lines are, apparently, in the works.  :Smile_smile:

Leone is in testing for ages and will probably not be part of the tech tree (at least not in that form). And there are no other RM DD in testing.

It figures WG is dropping the ball here but, still, we can hope they show up eventually.

There is no further nameless DD. There is the Paolo, but she is already available.

Since WG has pattern now:

 

Italian BBs

German CL line

maybe pan american DD line

then another split 

then another line

then maybe another small split

then possiply italian DDs in the end of 2021 or in beginning of 2022

French Cruiser Line 2, CVs

Royal Navy Battlecruiser / Battleship Line 2, various specials

Italian BBs / DDs

Commonwealth DDs

Pan-Asia CL specials

Pan-American DDs / CLs

European DDs line 2 / Cruisers

Assorted Soviet gubbins - MIG-15 CVs when? 

US guided missile cruisers :)

There is no chance that De Zeven Provinciën class cruiser would be a T10. It is quite questionable at T8.

Just like the German CV line was full of all those historic ships, right? Soviets did have quite a number of CV designs, both full and conversions, to fill a whole line and a couple of premiums. So Soviet CVs, despite all jokes, will arrive eventually, no matter did they have one IRL or not.

My favorite game. Prediction of new lines for 2021:

- Italian BBs ( that 1 is easy of course :cap_haloween: )

- Japanese DD split (with specialty submarine hunting) 

- USN submarines

- German submarines

- RU CV (with specialty submarine hunting) 

- Commonwealth Cruiser line (with specialty submarine hunting)   

 

2021 will be the year of the submarines :crab::cap_horn:

What would be nice - 

IJN light cruisers, KM torpedo boats, USN DD split, EU DD's part 2, French mini DD branch of more torp focused sneakier ships (like the Ru ones but hopefully more consistant), Latin American DD's, RM DD's, Commonwealth DD's, Latin American cruisers, Commonwealth cruisers, EU cruisers, RN & KM battlecruisers and maybe destroyer escorts.. they're almost in the game as it is with the FR and Ru DD's anyway. lol

 

What's more likely - 

More RN/IJN,USN CV's, subs, fantasy bolshevik blyatboat CV's,  French CV's with engine boost to run away even faster. :Smile_trollface:

 

I can't decide if I'm being a deluded fantasist or a cynical a:etc_swear:e here. :Smile_teethhappy:

Elephant in the room are the parallel USN and IJN CV lines. The models are there and as well as the stated intent two years ago to bring them back.

 

If not those, I anticipate French CV's at some point.

 

Edit: if they bring in Russian CV's before all of the previous, I'll be legitimately pissed...

 

Apart from CV's, the real low-hanging fruit are German and British BB line splits, bringing in their famous battlecruisers.

The Italian Navy had a dam sight more BBs in World War II than the glorious Soviet/Russian Navy, comrade. Possibly in both World Wars.

 

In both World Wars! Wow! Even in first one? Are you sure about that? Because I'm pretty sure that Russian Navy had more battleships than Italians in that war. But hey, joking about the Russian Navy is always fun, even when it is not true, right?

Did WG announced any plans for 2021, like they used to do? BTW it's been more than 3 months since last new tech tree info, so we should have another annoucement soon.

The Russian Navy is the one we need to take seriously in this regard. It seems you are correct, if we are talking about dreadnaughts. I count the Russian Navy having seven, and the Italians having six Battleships in WW1. At least if the information in Wikipedia is somewhat correct.

Nah, couldn't be arsed to look it up.

Which is why I wrote "possibly".

It helps if you can read, but only those who actually do it.

Your 'possibly' only covers both World Wars. :Smile_trollface:

 

However, when it comes to the WW2 you don't need the 'possibly' bit at all. The Italians definitely had more, and the only Soviet battleship I can think of was the Arhangelsk which the Brits had rather short-sightedly borrowed to the Soviet Workers and Peasants. Workers and Peasants don't really know how to run a battleship very well, do they now?

Actually not. Three of Gangut sisters were also active during the ww2. Two of them were blocked in Leningrad, and both were sunk in shallow water but were able to use their guns against Germans until the siege was lifted. Third one did some shore bombardments, but after German planes sunk several Soviet ships, it was kept safe and sound in the port out of the range of planes.

Ah... but the Gangut class are Russian ships. The Soviets just stole them from the Russians... Actually, I think one of my distant cousins commanded the Petropavlovsk (1911) some time during the war, IIRC in 1917.

I won't care to try guessing what's likely to come along soon, but there are quite a few lines that would be of interest:

 

- The British and German battlecruisers are long overdue, but it feels a little bit like they wouldn't have enough real ships past (maybe) T6 RN/T5 Germs for the lines to be taken seriously.

 

- Euro Cruisers would have lots of candidates (although again we'd be back to fantasy ships for higher tiers), I think I heard the idea somewhere for a North (Netherlands and Scandinavia)/South (Mediterranean countries) split which would be more interesting than the usual heavy/light split.

 

- Commonwealth Cruisers, again it would be a struggle to populate but the Commonwealth tree really needs some love and there were some great historical candidates for this one.

 

- Japanese light cruisers, seems like probably the most likely to arrive soon from this list.

 

- French and Italian cruiser splits, there are a number of historical lights and heavies from each that aren't in-game yet; could go from about T5/6 for both.

 

- As we know that historical accuracy is only ever an if-it's-no-bother inclusion, why not let the Lesta team have their own faction with lines which are specifically made up? That way their historically-minded folks could come up with something like 'archetypical' examples of different ship types (first/second-generation dreadnoughts; first/second-gen super-dreadnoughts; early/mid/late interwar/during-WW2 battleships; then something like protected cruisers; early/mid/late-WW1; early postwar; first/second/third-gen Treaty heavies; during-WW2 ultimate development; etc.), taking influence from a bunch of the different technologies and designs of the given periods. It would be easy to balance ships which are entirely made-up if nothing else (whether or not they'd end up that way, of course...).

 

Edit: Off-topic, but literally just got my Mak-Daddy from a Satan's Big Git crate while writing this:Smile_trollface:
