But we need a few more low tiers, like the USS Olympia. =3 Come on WG! How about it? Another tier 2 little protected cruiser for the [edited] and giggles eh? She's got a great history to her, and a lot of people know and love her, especially in the Philly area.

 

So what do you say @Pigeon_of_War and @SuperNikoPower? Give a little nudge and a wink to add the old girl into the game? Maybe make a cool little mission for her to earn Dewey's flag in pve/pvp or something?

 

Pretty plez WG?

Amen to this. I wish I had the words to express how much I want this ship in game. Not only was she Dewey's Flagship, but she bought home the 1st Unknown Soldier.

More battle cruisers and Tier 2 Pre-Dreads!

 

Would love to see the OG Indiana-class Battleships, preferably USS Oregon (BB-3) find a home in the game somewhere/somehow.

One of the earliest posts I made to the forum was a request for the Olympia. Back then I was still playing those lower tiers but even now after I've progressed up the lines I've kept and play ships in those tiers. So for me at least she wouldn't be a port queen but a valued member of my fleet.

Please...Please...Pretty Please... If you do this for us I'll never bad mouth WoWS again.

The only thing keeping me out of lower tier play is that most WG missions require T4 or T5 and higher. I still take out Smith or Tachibana -  and even Mikasa - on occasion to unwind.

The problem with whatever low-tier premium is that the missions are always tier 4+.

Yea I think that a common issue for a lot of us players. It would be nice if WG (other players) would add some lower Tier missions and Operations and  I think this would attract more players for the game.

I think the big fear is seal-clubbing at that tier - and I don't blame them. But many captains do like those lower tier ships and play for the fun factor vice clubbing.

Yes I understand that but, speaking as one of the seals; the only way us seals will get better is to face up to the clubbers.

And I know that all seals do not feel the same way.

You don't qualify as a seal with almost 5000 battles! :cap_rambo:

Really now, WoWS, does it make you feel good to make grown men beg.:Smile-angry:

It's not as if pleas falling on deaf ears is anything new around here. After all every new patch without the Haida is a slap in the face to our Canadian players.:Smile_facepalm:

I mean how many businesses have customers that complain about not having enough products to spend money on only to have that company ignore them.:Smile_sceptic:

Oh well we'll just have to keep reminding ourselves, "It's just a game.":Smile_child:

There are quite a few low tier, 4 and below, premiums out there already.  The problem is one that was already stated though, we can't use them for any missions.  There are plenty of premiums already, but we could always have more.  I for one would rather have a better reason to use them than just seal clubbing or the occasional comp stomp.

Purchasable Premiums

DD - Tachibana, Smith, Cambletown, Vampire(soon)

CL - Katori, Emden, Diana(freebie), Oleg, Aurora

BB - Mikasa, Ishizuchi, Konig Albert(was purchasable), Nikolai(was purchasable)

Well heres the thing, WG can easily just make a mission for the owners of Olympia, that would require the player to play her in order to complete it. Maybe make it available only in co-op, that way "seal clubbing" is kept to a minimum. (And really, is the Olympia even ABLE to seal club lol)

 

The great thing about tier 2 is its just stupid, mindless fun. Theres no competitive stigma or meta down there. You just sail, shoot, and have some derpy fun.

That's one way to do it for sure.  Another way would be to have mission difficulty scale to the tier of ship you are playing.  An example of bad mission design(imo) was the 1600 base EXP mission for the OR.  That's really difficult to pull off in a T4 but relatively easy in a T10 match.  If the challenge scales with the tier then you could play pretty much any ship you wanted.

I would just like WG to do something to promote lower tier play for longer established players.  Grinding out a new line takes a week or two and then most everyone is out of the low tiers and its back to the dedicated clubbers and the random new people.
