I do get the WoWS rage against the Russian ships. The Germans did have plans to build many of the paper ships in WoWS. WW2 started and those plans were scrapped. But Germany did have the plans and industrial capacity to follow through with plan. I do feel the German BBs need a serious buff to long range accuracy to be more historical. But understand that at the time they rolled out they were supposed to push up and brawl. And the current meta is opposite of that fighting style. Come on WG. At least buff Scharn/Gneis since they are tied with Warspite for longest range hits! But Russian ships, especially at launch, are OP and it takes 9-12 months for WG to nerf. And Russia's industrial capacity was no where near what Stalin dreamed for his navy. And in WG's video of the Sovietski Soryuz, the only ship above tier 4 in the tech tree to be laid down, WG's presenter admits that even in pre-war the USSR didn't have the ability to complete her. And the plan was to build 11 more sisters after her.
I agree that the Italian Navy needs better treatment in AL. Having boxes to upgrade to better equipment outside events would be a huge step for all factions outside the main 4.
