Asashio seems most likely.  At least I know I'm checking the premium shop a bit more often waiting for it :cap_haloween:

No idea, but I hear they are starting up a Bathtub League for timid players who won't push and engage. You start out with this on Tier I:

Probably the Asashio. Which I'm going to respond to by playing my CLs and CAs for a bit. Personally, I'm not going to get it since it seems even more feast or famine than a typical DD. Plus I already have the Harekaze which is much more balanced.

Varyag (Russian variant on T3 St Louis) is supposedly in the pipeline, but whether it's to buy, to win, or a combination of both is unknown, as is a release date AFAIK. Hopefully she will come out with a mission as Vampire did last year, plus a purchase option for those who don't want to go through the grind (probably with some unique flag or other decoration to sweeten the deal over the zero-cost play-to-win option). There is also a new Russian captain supposed to come out, and it will be interesting to see if they put him straight into the Varyag as a dedicated captain or whether they nominally specialise him for the Orlan.

 

(EDIT 13 April: Mouse's review is out, and includes the mission details. Now: WHEN?)

I'm thinking the Z-39. Asashio is still very polarizing within the community, but most agree that the tier VII Z-39 is balanced and pleasant to drive. Also, if a premium german DD is not released soon, I'm certain torches and pitchforks will happen. ;)

I have one question:  WHERE?  OH WHERE is the T-61?  

T-61 is not happening, at least not as designed. It's widely seen as very OP given it's insanely good torpedo reload.

Both Abruzzi and Z39 are getting decent reviews from the community contributors saying they're balanced. I would guess one of them.

@LittleWhiteMouse recently indicated that Asashio would not be the next premium to be released. My speculation is that it will either be Abruzzi or Varyag.

Stats Showing T-61 is Performing As It Should

I hope it's the Asashio. No interest in the Varyag and the Abruzzi doesn't look to be anything more than subpar at best after watching Flambass play it.

 

The April event breakdown states:

"Torpedo Time"

 

For one of them so hopefully it is the Asashsio. Guess we'll find out soon.

Would love to see Massachusetts finally arrive but know it won't be. Would also love it if they would bring Konig Albert back around so I can grab it. Every time it is there I plan to get it and when I finally go to they have pulled it. :Smile_facepalm:

Unfortunately, KA was added to the OP list (along with Gremy, Imp Nik, the Kamikaze Klan, Kutuzov, and Payfast) so the only way to get her in the future is via supercontainer or the Christmas events.

You sure about that? I didn't think it was put on the OP list?

Never mind it is on the wiki. Damn. :Smile_sad:

Yep KA was basically a tier IV  that had slight nerfs to justify making it a tier III. However she basically became the Imperator Nikolai II because she still had the hull and guns of a tier IV.

I agree! +1 Call it the Europa tree, make all the captains usable on all of them--Austria Hungary, Spain, Holand, Skandanavia, Poland, Greece etc... and the Dubrovnik of course.
