We understand you need income for your employees and we understand its not easy to balance everything constantly without proper data. However, when it comes to the premium ships being reviewed and teased, you can slow down.

At this point there are 5 destroyers (T-61, Aigle, Monaghan, Asashio, and Cossack), 2 cruisers (Duca Degli Abruzzi and Salem),  2 battleships (Massachusetts and Gascone) , and one aircraft carrier (Graf Zeppelin) that seem sort of lost in the void or have had sort of sub par early reviews.  We also had a crazy turn around for Duke of York between initial review, changes, and release.

Again, it is understood that the company needs income. We also understand you cant just make something and instantly balance it. Yet the reviews and sneak peeks of these new ships keep coming. Graf Zeppelin has been testing for a very long time and T-61 has been announced as being released for 2 consecutive months but has not been delivered.  Wargaming will look better to its community if you keep things more secret or deliver in the time frame you set. These are simple hiccups that could easily be dealt with by just slowing the time before lifting the NDA or announcing a ship will be released in a particular month. We wont have to deal with premature complaining about works in progress or even people like me writing comments like this.

I will give you my money but if you can stop teasing me and not living up to delivering content on time, it would be very appreciated.

It seems pretty normal for the modelling team to get a bit ahead, I wouldn't worry about it too much. WG like to keep to a rough schedule putting premiums out, we just have a backlog.

With PA-DD taking months to release, FR-BB supposed to come out last year, T-61 canned twice, Graf Zeppelin the fiasco of the year and some underwhelming first goes (add Huang He to that) I wouldn't say it's been the best 6 months for WG, but it could be worse.

Well you have a well detailed USN line proposal not being used on the reddit that's worse.

They are here to make money at the end of the day. I'd love to see a line of Italian cruisers , but someone has to be paid to go look at archives. Then someone has to model the ship and test the ship. World of tanks has a much higher premium spam rate than wows does. bold means buy those as they will be good.

What about all the things that went right last year? Lots of premiums came out that people loved. Not everything can be perfect and IMO, WG gets more right than wrong. I know I make mistakes in this game, so I can sympathize with the devs while waiting for the German DD T-61 Soon to hit the game sooner or later. :Smile_glasses:

Honestly......are you sure we won't have to deal with people like you writing comments like this?

......I guess I insist.

Its sort of hard to complain about being teased about ships that you're not being teased about, so yes, if nothing else I would shut up.

Although a number of you obviously dont agree, the tease of the new German Premium Tier 8 destroyer Z-39 was released yesterday, despite the inability to release/balance T-61. Like I said, slow down Wargaming. Its not that I dont appreciate their hard work or anything like that, simply that there is a slow building pile up of Premium ships that remain unreleased due to the inability to find balance. The T61 and Z-39 thing seems like a good example. The other potential fix is to simply be more open with information. Just saying " T61 is proving difficult to balance and incorporate into the game at present time and will be delayed" is more than enough to make me shut up.
