Where are they? Does anyone have a clue on how many are currently in testing due for release at some point before I die of old age? Is it a conspiracy to keep us hopeful?

 

Just saying, seems a bit boring around here. Need new stuff.

Afaik a good bunch of 'em is ready but kept on the bench just to stretch out the release cycle a bit longer. Otherwise they'd release 20 premiums in Q1 and nothing in the remaining year.

There does seem to be a high ratio of premium ships compared to silver, but they are easier to knock up and balance compared to a complete tree which needs 'flavour' to work.

Premiums:

Kronshtadt, Stalingrad (is it here yet? or only ST?), Asashio, Monaghan (tested on live ot ST?), Another Z (silence about it for a while, pulled back?), Cossack (haven't seen one in a while, pulled back?), that US / Argentinean CL (is it ST only?), Massachusetts (pretty sure it's only on ST)

 

Silver ships:

9x US cruisers (5x CL, 4x CA)

 

So that would be... 2...8 premiums and 9 silver ships, at least if I didn't forget any

I think that's from having 2 BB lines in a row (Pan Asian DD clones don't really count)

We also need new maps, esp from T5-8 and for WG to come up with a PvP game mode that suites clunky ship movement.

You are forgetting the Abruzzi and Salem. EDIT: And t-61

 

And this is only true if you consider the New Orleans, Pensacola, Baltimore and Cleveland to be new ships which technically, they are not. They're just existing ships that are undergoing a balance pass to be pushed up a tier, and I don't think that balancing of old ships should put them under the category of "new and shiny". Is the Shima or Hipper going to count as new ships becuase they're getting stats changed?

 

That leaves what, 11 upcoming premiums vs 4 or 5 actual new ships from the USN cruiser split?

I am not bothered with so much premium ships as i am frustrated with their selling policy...

 

Lets say that shop offer only small ammount of them, and those I truly want ... i wonder when they will appear again.

I guess that is their purpose, to let ppl wonder when they could buy something and keep them looking into it.

No idea what's the Italian CL, never heard of it

 

T-61 was announced as cancelled / shelved whenever that S_O Q&A was, like 2-ish months ago?

Oh, Abruzzi, right :Smile_teethhappy:

And is Salem even a thing? Haven't heard anything about that ship... pretty much since the end of last year

Shima and Hipper are just getting balance tweaks while US CAs as they are now get removed from the game and re-introduced in different tiers with completely different stats. Pretty big difference there

GZ is not a test ship, it's finished & released. Just that WG are keeping their word and currently it's available only for those who bought the ship on the 1st (pre-rework) release, while the general public will get their hands on it 3 months later - so expect it to be purchasable at the end of June

The thing is this: Why do they announce ships for testing? Is this purely to be informative / inclusive or to develop hype or discussion around the idea. It seems there are an awful lot of potential vessels in testing which we never tend to hear any more on. The Tone is just one example. What we need is a single comprehensive list of the ships - maybe with their development status (now that's just me being really picky). Things that have the green light but waiting for release?

 

Secretly I just want more ships or more variety. Since they removed so many from the in game store and from the web store the selection seems ridiculously boring. They're probably trying to create more demand.

HYPE HYPE HYPE HYPE

 

That's pretty much the TL;DR version for why

Barely teased, far far away from even getting added to ST, not even talking about live testing :Smile_teethhappy:
