Haven't heard a whisper about her since @LittleWhiteMouse  posted an article with her.

T9 premium? as surely her mention of T4 had to be a joke.

As of right now she's a T10. I do not have anything else other than that.

Interesting... That makes more sense although I'd prefer her as a T9 and with what appears to be a lackluster USN cruiser split coming she'd be a bright spot for sure. On the road in Ohio so haven't been able to play PT.  All the best 2u @Doomlock!

The mention was probably about the Salem Witch which was a tier four boss ship.

Like Monaghan, CCs do not have access to Salem.  She's obviously not high on the priority list right now.  This is understandable with the American cruiser revamp in the works.  There are still plenty of premiums close to (or ready for) release such as Asashio.

@LittleWhiteMouse Appreciate your reply. I see your point from WGs perspective and agree with you. My thoughts were based on what looks like a huge sigh of underwhelm from the forum base regarding the much touted USN split and it's effects on gameplay especially the Cleveland. The IJN DD split had mixed results and high hopes for revitalizing the line only to see ships like the Shira get nerfed into mediocrity by module changes.  Salem at T9 would be a reasonable choice as even the DM at T10 is easy pickings for T8-T7 BBs in anything other than high tier camping scenarios and properly setup wouldn't be giving up much.

I suspect Salem or Massachusetts are destined to be the new "free experience" ship(s?) for the US Navy.  Mediocrity isn't a bad thing in that case.

That's a pretty reasonable argument and close to fact I suspect! Best to you Mouse! :Smile_honoring:

The USS Salem is a Des Moines class cruiser. They would have to be in the same tier.

Des Moines is Tier X.

 

Musashi is a Yamato-class BB and is tier 9

 

Mutsu is a Nagato-class battleship and is tier 6

 

On that note I'd much rather have Alaska as a tier 9.
