Yes dude,it is nice but how many British BBs will there be on tier 7?

Hood, Nelson, KGV and now the Duke?

Would prefer a tier 8 US cruiser instead.

WG has admitted there is a BB overpopulation and they still introduce new BB lines and premiums. (French silver BBs on the way, Italian BBs maybe next, Roma, Mushashi, Massacusetts, Gulio Ceasare,Kii etc. etc.)

I mean, jesus christ.

(Sry if you are a BB main or a collector and I broke your hype)

I'm guessing it's specific to the new tier 7 operation. Maybe a player controlled ship like Anthony/Cyclone/Halloween or a baddie bot. :cap_yes:

No a good ship. Trading reload and heal for AA boost ? Bad idea. Plus, there is too much British ship in T7 !

I'm not so sure, would WG trail it on the dev blog if it was just in the game for a scenario, and isn't DoY a bit too famous to be wasted just for that?

 

Also, "The Final Frontier" is IJN and is presumably against USN (okay DoY was there, but still....), and does supertesting scenario ships make any sense anyway?

 

I agree it looks odd, but that's WG for you.

They've started 'spoiling' all ships and mechanics on facebook before they hit supertest server (for ad revs?) Asian/RU data miners detailed all the changes to Cyclone and Anthony, everyone said those were rubbish premiums too. :cap_hmm:

Got to reskin that old tier 8 KGV hull to make money. Of course WG aren't bright enough to either change it to Prince of Wales as a tier 7, or to keep DoY at tier 8. But hey, Lyon's terrible ww1 era 340mm are good enough for tier 7. 

 

This is where Trainspite becomes a WG bashing cynic. Well, not quite, but WG are really trying hard for it.

 

I should be happy about seeing an RN ship, but WG are doing it in one of the worst ways possible, so wrong that I am left internally sick/screaming at the future of the game.

Give us a well armoured KGV class, remove HE and instead give it decent sigma and AP penetration. That'll be balanced by the 14". 

 

I won't be playing for a clone ship anyway.

 

2017 Year of the BB...
