WG announced at WG Fest the other week that from now on, ship lines/releases are going to be done by quarter/theme only. Each quarter is dedicated for a line and theme. Meaning only 4 lines/splits per year. The first quarter is dedicated to France/French BB line. US cruiser split was stated to be arriving after the French BBs. Meaning they’re slated for the second quarter.

 

Releasing the French BBs faster is not going to bring the US cruiser split any faster since each line is dedicated for a quarter only now. Seeing as the first quarter still has both months of February and March that need to pass before you hit the second quarter, that means the time table for the US cruiser split is between April-June for their quarter since Jan-March is the French quarter. So even if the French BBs were to release next week, you wouldn’t see the US cruiser split at the earliest until April since that’s when the second quarter has been dedicated/reserved for them starts.

 

Im personally hoping they decide to can the quarter idea.

Jan-March is the French quarter

How fitting, considering that Mardi Gras is right in the middle of all that.

I wonder if WGNA will do a French-themed event for it? Paging @Pigeon_of_War... :Smile_trollface:

At Gamescom the devs said the Italian cruisers would be coming winter/last quarter of 2018.

Assumption is that it’ll be the RU BBs seeing as they were pushed back from 2017 and stated to be arriving in 2018. As well as on the RU forums the devs teased an emblem for a Russian Collection/Campaign and captain. And now all releases are accompanied be a collection and campaign for their arc for the quarter. Since each quarter is dedicated for a certain line/nation now then if we are getting a Russian collection/campaign then that would lead one to assume there’s a theme/quarter since a quarter has to be dedicated, which be accompanied by a line.

I'll believe that when it happens. It would ne nice if WG would give us some solid info about the USN Cruiser split.

So pacify us USN cruiser types until the release and let loose the Wichita as a premium. It's in Blitz so it's modeled.

USS Alaska will always be on my number one list though I know Wichita was a one off ship. We really need to get USn Nevada in the game already

Nevada will come as the Tier V of a second US battleship line. That's my prediction, for what it's worth.

Not everyone is a testosterone-fueled Michael Bay explosion-surfing cowboy driving a Ford F-150 down to the gun range to fire off a few shots from their family heirloom Barrett .50 Cal while slamming back a cocktail of Redbull and whiskey whilst cramming doughnuts down their gob with American flag-styled icing to the tune of Yankee-Doodle-Dandy while waitresses from Hooters shower you in Chicken McNuggets as the Blue Angels fly overhead in a formation that resembles an eagle... 

I dunno.... sounds like a fun time to me.... :Smile_hiding:

As Renegade says, WG’s release cycle for tech tree lines drops every 3 months or so if they hit their schedules.   Since WG targets Gamescon as their “big Trade Show Splash Event” in August, the typical release months are Feb, May, Aug, Nov.

The US Cruiser split will likely be the May drop since the Pan-Asians DDs were last Nov, the French BBs are Feb (probably since 7.1 already contains a Collection feature to get a French Commander as a tease).  A cruiser line split in May would be likely since WG would probably want a bigger splash than a line split for Gamescon.

K, in a few words:

USN cruiser line split after T5 into light and heavy cruiser.

Light cruiser: T6 concept for Omaha with turrets, later St. Louise class (aka USS Helena),  Cleveland will be T8, new T9-T10 ships

Heavy cruisers: T7-T9 will be dumped one tier, new T9 coming.
