It's been months that I hardly followed up with the game update developments beside the Pan-Asian DDs & probably cruisers, since I've been busy struggling with IRL stuffs. I even got a few work-in-progress threads backlogged for too long.

Anyway, what's the current status of the Soviet Navy's tech-tree developments? I'm sure I've missed some key updates for months. Cause I need those information to update my tech tree threads.

WG needs to concentrate on navies that actually did something in world war 2 :) First the French BB’s

Khaba is still the cancer it always has been, Moskva is still one of the best tier 10 cruisers, other than the partial soviet DD split, nothing else really.

 

Which is good.... WG still has French, Italian, USN and RN lines to bring out.

Correction; Its cruiser Khaba and battleship Mosvka!

I don't mind Russian BBs, but only the real ones. It's disappointing we can't get the WW1 BBs first because WG always wants a full line.

Well RU BBs are expected to arrive some time in 2018. Some were laid down, but never completed, others are expected to be paper designs.

 

The US cruiser line is splitting at T6 with T6 Pensacola,  T7 New Orleans, T8 Baltimore, T9 Buffalo and T10 Des Moines being the CA half. The CLs are T6 Dallas, T7 Helena, T8 Cleveland, T9 Seattle, T10 Worcester. This is expected to happen in the first half of 2018.

 

French BBs are in the works I understand.

 

I would expect Italian CL/CAs to arrive in 2018 at some point.


Hopefully RN DDs are in the works.

 

I would not be surprised to see another Pan Asian line in 2018, if the DD line went over well in China.

 

A Commonwealth cruiser line would be nice and not too hard as I expect it would be made up of copies or near copies of ships already in the game.

 

A British CA split would be nice.

If only they'd embrace the "stub-line" like they have in WoT. But yeah, the Soviet line gets the benefit of existing, lol.

Much better than their real life developments, LOL!!

Or that even actually existed. (Clue: NOT Soviet BB's!!)

I agree with this, and would also like to see some of the earlier BB's (tier 2 stuff) introduced, the pre-dreadnaught stuff.

Along this line of thinking, I still say that I'd like to see an Austria-Hungarian navy tech tree, even if it only tops out at tier 6 or  7 (because the nation ceased to exist after the end of WW1).  They built their own warships, unlike some countries or "countries" (PA, looking at you).

I wish that they would add pre-dreadnoughts to all BB lines, and have BB lines branch off of cruiser lines at tier 2, rather than tier 3.

I believe you're referring to partial lines? That's what I'm hoping for with Russian BBs. Whatever Soviet paper designs they're working on, WG can take all the time they need because I couldn't care less about them. Don't delay real BBs like Gangut and Imperatritsa Mariya because of the upper tiers. Just put them in the game already. If the line ends at T5 or 6, big deal. Paper/fake ships can always come later. WG did acknowledge that BB overpopulation is a problem anyway.

Even the alternate IJN DD line ends with Akizuki at T8, and that has never bothered me. I've never heard of Super Akizuki and I wouldn't care if it never came.

Destroyer Leader & "medium cruiser", mind you. Don't take their different way of classifying ships at face value...

Besides, you didn't seem to interested on replying my question since you probably know little about the Soviet Navy itself.

Thanks for the brief update, man. You're an example to be shown in replying my question.

Hmm... no word from the possible IJN CL/CA lines split? That's a shame. Besides, an EU tech tree could be interesting.

@Crucis, I'm always flattered when you quote me. (even when you're wrong!)

And ... YEAH! I could go with this as a different approach to the BB lines, branch them at tier 2 and go with the pre-dred thangs!

(this is where I should put that butt-fugly pic of the French BB's which hits the Forum every so often. Ship is so ugly it's beautiful)

But yeah, lets buff the lower tier ship pool for players who like lower tiers; hate radar, hydro, and AA; and just want to "pew-pew" their way to a good time. 100 percent for it! Plus 1!

And the gimmick is the "crawling" smoke? I expect the cry of  "OP" if that happens.

Problem is they only really fit in T4-T5.  Nothing fits at T3, and they dubiously fit at T4 (see Nikolai). Hilariously the first dreadnought they built is a very good T5 (October Revolution).

Doesn't have to have a gimmick. Or if you have to have a gimmick, it could be something else.

From what I do know, the current line release schedule looks like this:

 

  • [Definite] French battleships likely in the first update of January
  • [Definite] USN CL/CA split some time after that (perhaps middle of February)
  • Perhaps Italian cruisers after this?
  • Perhaps French destroyers after this?
  • Perhaps Russian battleships in time for Gamescom? (WG has stated that they always plan to have a "European" big line release in time for Gamescom)

Either way, many will come next year.

No such things...

Anyway, if you guys are curious of the Soviet/Russian BBs, kindly refer to my thread here, I've also outlined some key features how they likely be:

https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/78189-russian-irnsoviet-vmf-battleship-line-–-recovery-from-wounded-pride-stalins-envisioned-ultimate-warship-for-the-ocean-going-navy/

It's on my signature.

I also made a battlecruiser line, too. But I would need to update

If you look at the nation tech tree, each nation's ship class has a defining characteristic. Or gimmick. I suspect WG was planning to use the "crawling smoke" gimmick as the defining feature for the CW tree line.  They may have decided not to implement it due to the gimmick was only introduced again to to Huang He as a way to balance the ship.

If WG can get a French semi-dreadnought to fit at T3, then I don't see why they can't do it for the Russians. No doubt it will have unhistorical guns like Turenne though.

Only because it's in modernized form. I'd like to see her in her original WW1 configuration, back when it was known as Gangut.

I found the Okt Rev to be a horrid ship, I sold it to pay for my Iowa...I am not impressed with what they have out on offer currently. 

 

Out of ALL of the lines, the Russians are the least I care about...

We're still waiting on French, British DD lines. French BB line. American Heavy and Light cruiser split. The Italian fleets. 

Hell, I'm even happy they put out the Pan-asia destroyers before popping out more russian paper biased ships. (At least they existed.)
