I got my Dunky a 15pt captain and am waiting to sail something else. However, I am reading that more US cruisers and a new line of russian bb's are coming? Can anyone confirm this?

 

Thank you!

No word on french lines, if optimistic earliest we'll see them would be late 2017/early 2018.

Have patience, besides you should get excited for the release of Graf Spee. Dunkerque will finally have the very ship it was designed to destroy in the same tier. It's gonna be fun overtaking Spee's slow 28 knots and bouncing all the 283mm shells.

I should be excited for the Giraffe's Bay but i'm not. A Scharnhorst is a better ship in nearly every aspect. I have a LOT of free exp saved for french ships... and that's the only type of ships i'm interested in purchasing right now.

USN line changes? I hope they don't change more lines. I'd rather see them just add new ships instead of removing or changing old ones.

I think we might see the Italians first

 

 Highly unlikely.  No Wargaming title has ever included Italian vehicles so it's unlikely they had good sources readily available, and there is already a French premium ship in the game.

I'm sure the allies were asking the same thing during the war. :trollface:

 

This is how you make a French joke, people.

They will be adding a Lite Cruiser line which will change the Cleveland to a tier 8 and she will be more to her historical abilities. So there will be a split but a Heavy and lite lines to make a more rounded group of cruisers in game.

Sorry, dude, but i don't think it's gonna be Russian BB's. It's most likely a Royal Navy BB Line, given that the Russians just never had enough designs, unless the created some of their own

Well yeah, that's pretty much true for every Tier 7 BB compared to a Tier 6 CA....

Late 2017 or early 2018.  WG averages 4-5 new lines a year, and they've already tentatively confirmed 3 of the lines they are working on for 2017.

- CV overhaul and RN CVs.

- RN BBs.

- VMF BBs (one Q&A said they "WILL" have it out in 2017).

 

That leaves 1-2 open slots.  I'd lean towards French cruisers for late 2017, with French BBs for early 2018, unless WG actually managed to work out French battleships ahead of a French cruiser line.  The last line, if WG is able to squeeze out a 5th, would probably be RN DDs.

 

Italy isn't likely due until 2018 or 2019, though I expect an Italian Premium or two to show up around middle-to-late 2017, the same way Dunkerque and Tirpitz did.  Probably a Littorio-class, Zara-class, and/or carrier Aquila.  I'd lean towards a Littorio-class being the first Italian Premium, since battleship premiums make more cash for WG on average (Arizona, Warspite, Scharnhorst, and Tirpitz.  Missouri too, even if it's incremental via players waiting on Doubloon sales).

No battleship line will ever precede either a cruiser or destroyer line on account that you cant research battleships until tier 3.
