1  As a t3 she would not enhance my game and is not worth the money.

2  Combat ability and both historical stats and game balance demand a game changer, which Dreadnought was.

3  Wargaming has the final say, true.

4  It would have to be a give away as a t3.

5  Her firepower (except for number of main guns), secondaries, and armor is easily on par with late pre dreadnought type ships.

6  You have not stated one logical reason for it not being a t2. If they decide not to do it that is fine.

7  What tricks would you give her at t3? Her stock 18 inch (450 mm) torpedo tubes? The only way I see Dreadnought fitting in at t3 is with her torpedo tubes       intact.

 

1) That is not relevant to anybody other than you.  Does Prinz Eugen do anything that Admiral Hipper does not?

2) No they do not.  Deliberately making a ship overpowered at its tier level is not a design goal.  It is actually the opposite of a design goal.

3) Indeed.

4) Incorrect.  You would not buy it, but many others would.

5) This is just as true for Bellerophon, Kawachi, Nassau and South Carolina and those are all Tier III.

6) We have stated many, you just don't want to accept them.  That does not change the fact that we have explained it to you.

7) She doesn't need any tricks.  Slight adjustments to rudder shift times, rate of fire or some such would be plenty.

6) Game Balance - biggest and best reason of all.

7) I do not think WG will put fixed torp tubes on ships for ANY ship this debate has been on the forums before. Dreadnought carried five 18-inch (450 mm) submerged torpedo tubes in three compartments. Each compartment had two torpedo tubes, one on each broadside, except for the stern compartment which only had one torpedo tube. The forward torpedo room was forward of 'A' turret's magazine and the rear torpedo room was abaft 'Y' turret's magazine. The stern torpedo compartment was shared with the steering gear. Twenty-three Whitehead Mark III* torpedoes were carried between them. In addition six 14-inch (356 mm) torpedoes were carried for her steam picket boats.

HMS Dreadnought, should it ever become a Premium, is Tier 3.

She essentially is a prototype for all the Dreanought/Battleships that follow.

HMS Bellerophon is the 'production' model if you will.

Primarily due to Mikasa, Tier 2 would be the 'pre-Dreadnought' realm. HMS Dreadnought would simply be too OP to be placed here, and they would have to nerf her to the point of unplayable. People complain now about Mikasa in Tier 2, HMS Dreadnought would be the same.

As to the matter of people buying her as a Tier 3 Premium, people already buy the SMS Konig Albert at Tier 3 and the Mikasa at Tier 2.

According to Jingles' new video, Bellerophon is a very good T3. Dreadnought as a carbon copy except with no secondaries to speak of and maybe slightly different soft stats should be fine as a T3 premium eventually.
