IJN Tree split - Question

So since the IJN Tree is getting split.. it makes me have questions!

 

Right now i have the Kagero Unlocked... but not purchased.. and own zero IJN DD's.

Is it safe to assume i will have the new T9 unlocked when the tree is changed ?  or should i get a Kagero setting in my port ?

I think you will have the Yuugumo unlocked. But I only think so

If previous tech tree splits and re-tierings done by WG are any indication,

 

- If you have the T9 unlocked before the split, you'll have it unlocked after the split

- If you have the T9 in port before the splot, you'll have the downtiered T8 and the T9 in port after the split, with a free port slot thrown in.

 

Granted, most of those re-tierings I'm basing this on were in WoT rather than WoWS, but it's still WG, and there's never been a case where one would lose progress with a split or re-tiering.

If they make this change like they do in WoT you will have the Yugumo unlocked.

If you buy the kagero you will keep the kagero but all exp and capt on it will transfer to Yugumo when the tech tree change happen so that way you get a free port slot and a free T8 ship.

 

I would advice you to rebuy the Hatsuharu if you have sold it and play it so you have 100-110k exp on it it will then be replaced with shiratsuyu and you will have enough exp on it to unlock akizuki.

That way you get a free T6 ship and another free port slot.

Agree with what Lert said. The WoT tradition (even in WoT Console) should give you the T9 equivalent if you have Kagero in port before the update.

I have all IJN DDs from tier 4 up except only Mutsuki in port. So I can hope to see a free new Fubuki? That sounds good. Let's hope they follow the WoT method~

Unless mentioned otherwise by release time, it is IMO better to buy the ships you have researched before the updates hit. You may have to sell some stuff to get there.

And I should not buy back the current Mutsuki now as it will be at tier 5 for a cheaper price I believe.

If you own the Mutsuki you will get the new T6 Fubuki + port slot.

But Im not sure how it will work if you have both the mutsuki and fubuki, i have no idea what they will do.

Maybe they just delete your account so they don't have to deal with that :)

I hope when the release news are officially published to the site, they will give us these scenarios. Also prices.

 

I suspect we may see something next week or 2 now the community contributors are creating threads for these new ships.

The only thing we have is a dev's comment that if you have researched modules on a ship, you will keep those modules researched after the moves, thus not losing progress. The only lost progression will be in modules such as torpedoes that are removed/replaced.

 

Anything else is just speculation. No one knows how WG will handle this, and questions including the one posted here have gone unanswered by WG. My advice would be to assume you will retain nothing but the research done on any ships you have, and will lose everything else without compensation. That way, you won't be disappointed when that happens. If WG acts fairer on this issue than they have so far, you can be happy about what else they have given you rather than counting on something they never promised you.

A free one of every downtiered one, and their new replacements, theoretically. This is still speculation.

I wish WG would give us some info on what they plan to do, so everyone can plan ahead. The current silence on the issue is concerning.

They'll give you time to plan ahead. A day or two ahead when they release the update video for 5.15 :D
