Last year we had an announcement post with Wargamings plans for 2017 on the portal.

https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/updates/dev-diaries-2017-plans/

 

Will we get something similar for 2018? What are Wargamings plans for the game in the following year?

  • Will we get the RU-DD split that was planned for last year? (my fault, as a non-RU DD player I completly forgot about them)
  • What new ship branches and nations are in the pipelines?
  • What technical changes to the client are planned?
  • Are there any hints for future community events?
  • Will it finally be the year of the carrier?

 

@Tuccy@MrConway (would you please reply to my PM), @Kandly, or anyone else at Wargaming please respond. :fish_boom:

 

Edit for the rest of us: It is time to speculate.

Didn't we get the RU DD split?

 

Because I distinctly remember I have two tier X RU DDs in my port, not just one.

Well two things are sure:

  • French BB line which we can expect quite soon
  • US CA/CL split lines, probably after French BBs somewhere in the first half of 2018 

There is some indications that RN DD line and Italian CL/CA line will also be introduced this year and some suggestion of CV rework but these were based more on one translated interview and not officially confirmed by WG staff.

He is talking about other (third?) line of Soviet DDs composed of ships WG announced last year

Wasn't that dropped along with the new type of weaponry?

In a way I did. But I really completly forgot the already available second DD line we have in the game. My fault and I edited my opening post to reflect that.

And where do I find this on a Wargaming operated website? :cap_hmm:

(that's what I am aiming for with this thread)

It was discussed on the forum in December...

Well possibly ... probably ... kind of ... Three dds in the photo, Smeliy, Neustrashimy and Project 56 (better known as Kotlin class in the West) were all regular destroyers with guns and torps. Kotlin class later received missiles but when commissioned they were armed only with guns and torps. It was Kildin class, possibly the top tier of the line and which briefly appeared in the same video, that was problematic as it was the first class of destroyers that carried ASM missiles in the World. S_O confirmed that they tested missiles but they reject them (for now) but the question is what will happen with other three models as they were probably already created.

Apparently.
Can't have fun to use weapons that very effective against BBs now, can we? :Smile_trollface:

 

OT: There was also rumors of RU BBs possibly late this year, or early 2018.
That remains to be seen.

I'd like to see the T-61 at some point. Feels as though it's been teased for a ridiculously long time with no sign of it appearing in the shop. I hope there aren't some last-minute updates taking place, the ship I saw being previewed on various streams looked like an excellent DD.

Too good if I remember correctly and considering at the same WG previewed another T6 DD that was just meh... I wouldn't be surprised if both ship went back to balance department's hands.

Admittedly it was strong but I've wanted a premium DD for the Germans since I started playing that line simply because they're great all-rounders. I'd probably still buy it anyway but after repeatedly missing out on a Kamikaze, keeping it with that strength is the least WG could do. I don't mind if they withdraw it from sale straight away, the moment after I've bought mine.

Not that many things on the list that would interest me... I'm not from the USofA, so all those mentioned "american things"  are just mehhhh... and football hasn't been fun since the mid-seventees, when it was less tactical and way more aggressive and fun. And the championship will just be another "Putin Supreme Ruler" festival, making more rich russian folks even richer...

 

So it would be nice to see more things on such a list, that would be of interest to european people... like... 2018 - the year of the Polxit... when Poland finally takes full consequence for it's politics and leaves the EU... probably to join a trade union with England :Smile_hiding:

HMS Dreadnought (!!!),  Japanese Light Cruisers, WW1 Battlecruisers for the RN and KM and Commonwealth (along with more care and attention to the WW1 Tiers of the game),  more Destroyer Leaders (starting with HMS Cossack, svp), the Arethusa and Dido class RN CLs and some obscure specials based on all the ships the RN and USN sold after WW2 which were still going well into the 1980s (INS Mysore, for example, which was really HMS Fiji).

Well for sure we will see a big drop of players playing this game; MM is getting worse and worse and now is like 200% worse than 6 months ago,, more and more fights and in 7 min because one team have 10 normal good average player vs at least 7-10 hard potato ( players that play worse than bots in coop and that are actually having hard time to win in coop - you wouldn't believe but I have seen that few night ago while I was going for that missions ) , WG don't care for them sails income of gazilion premium going perfect but one day that 90% of average normal and ofc unicom players will gone from game  than it will be to late ...  

 

But ok, this was my second returning to the game and it will be my last, there was some great time like on 1 year and about when KM got out, Battles was great, learning curve was real - now day is all about MM player RNG, so for me 2018 will be a sad year for this game because for WG only thing that is important are more new expensive premium with tragicomic expensive camo's and Patch that show when someone kill you or look at your name and same goes for last year  ..
