Why are we seeing more US Warships, especially of the same class ??? 

Why arent we seeing new warships from the royal navy like a destroyer line ?

Why arent we seeing More commonwealth ships???

Why dont we see a Canadian Navy line ???

Here is a list of Canadian Navy ships

ships of the Royal Canadian Navy of World War 2

 

Im not canadian but I think the lack of Commonwealth ships and also even a Royal navy line  of destroyers when we  have a full line of US Ships,  when a lot of these new ships even new prmiums could be constructed. 

Instead we get, version 2 of a cleveland class  et el    etc. 

Im sure all the Americans will  howl me down but you have  your ships, deal with it, we need newer navy , different naval ships and ship classes. 

How about it wargaming !!!

It makes money and attracts players on the North American server. I do hope they add French and British DDs, just to balance out the BB-heavy meta, but for now some new American hardware is not a bad idea for them.

Aside from times with missions, the meta does balance out to the point sometimes where I have often seen BBs vanish out of MM and it’s all DDs, CAs, and sometimes CVs. BBs are huge and therefore easy to hit with torpedoes or guns. As a DD or CA I love seeing BBs since they usually mean very high Damage scores for me.

theres enough American content for all ship classes to keep the na server and everyone happy including the premiums.

Im sure WG can think more laterally for other navies and bring in new and different ships/classes of other navies.

Americans are not the only ones that are patriotic and would like to see their own ships  and commonwealth navies come from many different countries and would yield a larger target audience and therefore be more profitable. 

The new American ships go on All the servers, not just the NA one.. So im saying we dont need more American ships at the moment, but more ships of different classes from Navies not seen before would be good.

They are always adding new ships and updating lines. This is the American turn for a line split.

It's the NA server? US anything tends to be more popular over here for obvious reasons. It is the same in basically any game that has US stuff. US cruiser line split is the first new content for them in a long time.

When exactly was the last time the Americans actually got anything that wasn’t a premium?

Oh right, during CBT...

Wasn't the french line recently added, a few new premiums, they do have dev blogs outlining what they want to achieve, you could always start there to see whats next.  I'm happy with whatever they bring out.  Does not mean I want it, but adds new texture to the game.

Here's an answer you won't like.

BECAUSE THE AMERICANS ACTUALLY BUILT (almost) ALL OF THEIR SHIPS AND THEY ACTUALLY FOUGHT IN THE WAR!

Did you throw this [edited] fit when they split the Soviet and IJN dd lines?  This is the first American (partial) line added in a very long time. All those French and Pan-Asian ships don't count for you?

In the entire time I've been here I've seen them add:

-British BBs

-Geman BBs

-IJN DDs

-Pan Asian DDs

-British CLs

-French BBs

-French CL/CAs

-Russian DDs

-Russian CL/CAs

-German DDs

This is the first time they've added USN anything outside of premiums.

It couldn't be because the USN was the most prolific builder and operator of all ship types in game over the period the game covers, and also one of he largest naval powers of all time for the whole course of time covered by the game. It probably also has nothing to do with the extensive action the USN was involved in during the period of the game, or that the USN was a leader in technological and tactical development over the whole course of time covered by the game etc etc.

 

Quick - best add in the Royal Omani Navy!

Seems like aside from premiums this is teh first time the US line has been touched since release.  Every other line has had something, including the Japanese lines.  Not sure what is meant here.  I mean we've gotten Russian, French, German, British, even Chinese lines since opening and a Japanese DD split.

A lot of it is access to plans.  The USN allows easy access to their old engineering drawings.

Cause meeeeeeeeerica**** yeah!~

JK, but they add a new line time from time, this split is us cruisers line is good (heavy vs light).

They probabily goingsplit the bb and the cv from usn and ijn someday (cause lots of ships).

Also add new lines is complex, not a lot countrys invest in navy in WWII and need be a lot projects.

ships of the Royal Canadian Navy of World War 2

 

Im not canadian but I think the lack of Commonwealth ships and also even a Royal navy line  of destroyers when we  have a full line of US Ships,  when a lot of these new ships even new prmiums could be constructed.

Im sure all the Americans will  howl me down but you have  your ships, deal with it, we need newer navy , different naval ships and ship classes. 

How about it wargaming !!!

 

To the first point - because as stated above the US has not gotten a single tech tree ship since technically Alpha (not counting the changes of the ships in the line) where as all new countries, save PA, have had at least 2, and IJN got a split. USN's turn after a couple years. There's also the fact over that time, a lot about this has been talked about to get the lines split both by players and Wargaming. Pensacola was put at tier 7 purely because it had 203 MM guns, while Cleveland, because it had 152 mm guns, was nerfed in RoF and I believe other areas just to put it at tier 6 and even then it overperformed, especially in AA. Albeit I think powercreep may have finally caught up to it. Lot of other things like demand, ships, etc makes it a good way to add content while retooling the lines and bringing them up to date. 2 birds 1 stone.

To the second - the talk was last year we were to get the CV line of UK, along with the rework because a CV line has never been added to the game and at this point, something just to break the monotony of USN vs IJN and the still unaddressed issues between the two would be nice. However, neither materialized despite, as I recall, a video stating that on the board last year was 2 UK lines. Also not sure if this still holds true, but at one point they were apparently having trouble getting access to UK ship materials like blue prints and other archive stuff. Could still be a thing. 

To point 3 and 4  - "we need newer navy , different naval ships and ship classes." your words. While the USN tech tree may not be "New" it is getting completely new ships added along with the tier changes to existing ships in the shuffling. At last check the ships of the Commonwealth - would be basically be just another line of UK cruisers - anyone with more knowledge on them feel free to show me any original ships they built in the time frame. And you link that list of Canadian ships which would basically be a line of UK DD's with some USN ones mixed in and still a tier short of a full line. Which, just saying, you say that line near the end yet ask for new navies with different ships and classes yet UK DD's would be a new line but not really a new navy, and even if Commonwealth and Canada are in fact new navy's, well, most if not all the ships would be copies of existing ships/ships that will likely be added to other nations first. 

Plus there is always the chance that they do as some talked about where Commonwealth is folded back in to UK similar to the ARP/Dragon ships to share commanders.

WOT is 7 years old and they finally got Italians.

WOWS isn't even 3 and they had 2 Italian ships.

If they put out everything everyone wanted this year, what would we have to look forward to next year?

Rather than while about the USN cruiser split which is GOING TO HAPPEN, why not wonder what line is next in the queue?  An Italian cruiser or battleship line?  French or British DDs?  (Shudder) Russian Battleships?  Something else?
