Has there ever been, or might there one day be, T5 operations?

I finally got the 375k free XP to get the Nelson. However, I need to clear some dock space both for it, as well as the Mogami which I'll get in a day or two. 

Any real reason to keep T5s?  I'd like to hang in the the St. Louis, Clemson, and Derpski, but if T5 are ever used in operations or special missions I could let one of those 3 go and buy them back later if I really want to.  But I do play them from time to time, yet I don't find myself playing any T5s, even ones I liked like the Furutaka.

Operations used to be almost exclusively tier 5 and tier 6 things. The first 3 or 4 were all accessible by both tier 5s and tier 6s.

 

I used to love running my Texas in them.

Seems like they are pushing it up the line 

And since it's all about getting players to high tier, I'd guess it's unlikely they will ever have a tier 5. Might see a tier 9 or 10 at some point though....:Smile_teethhappy:

Also, often around Christmas and sometimes other times, they'll put a very special port slot bundle in the Premium shop that's worth checking out.

The current coal reward missions can be done with tier 5, however they do continue to increase the bar. Btw dont sell omaha before unlocking dalla if you didnt already.

Operation used to be T5-6. I think the only T5 operation was Dunkirk but they may add similar event someday

At this point, it's a matter of preference.  With exception of Premium's (NEVER sell a premium, even a free one), you can ditch the rest for space after you've gotten the next tier.

 

Newport, Aegis, Killer Whale and Raptor Rescue USED to allow T5's, but they dropped them.  Dunkirk was a special OP, like the Halloween Op's, but was a DD only Op that used "special DD's" with one exception, Gallant.  I figure it will make a round again this year.

 

Really wish they would either revamp two of the current 4 T6 Op's for T5's only, or make a couple of T5 Op's.

Nelson comes with a slot, so problem solved. 

I expect there will be a T5 Op this year.  No bets.

Meanwhile, spend some Doubloons while there is a sale on.

What would be good is there to be a "Training" operation that is for T5 and is always on offer for people to get in and have a feel with or for experienced players who like the assorted T5s they have

There was. When OPs first hit, it was for T5/6 ships. However, T5 ships going up against some T7/8 ships in certain OPs, simply got wrecked. Then The T5 DD's from the Dunkirk event started popping up in these OPs and were all but worthless.

I had no greater distain than when I would load into a battle and have 4 out of 7, T5 ships. Guess which 4 ships always died first, early and often. Every. Single. Time. WG, caught on and wisely dropped T5 ships from OPs. Best move they made for Scenarios/ OPs. Cheers!

I'd like to see operations specifically for tier 5. I'd like an opportunity to use more of my ships in operations.

Nelson does not come with port slot.  I could spend the doubloons for them but for me personally it's not worth it when I can just sell ships I rarely play. Just prioritizing which ones to sell. 

Thanks everyone for the replies.

I would love a T5 Operation so I could unleash the Kirov....a T5 MONSTER.

The only reasons to keep silver T5's (outside of loving to play the ship, of course) imo is either you're a ship hoarder collector like myself or hoping for a line split.

The event destroyers that were in port solely for the Dunkirk scenario were not usable outside of that specific operation.  As far as Tier 5 ships in the original operations, there were plenty that could do well in them as long as they were played well.  The Marblehead for example was actually very powerful in them, and I used it to get most of my 5* wins.

No slot?  I thought all premiums come with a slot.  Not that I have any experience buying them for FXP...  Learn something every day.

I'm with you.  I hate spending money for slots.  Keep St. Louis.  I'd consider selling the other two, though I personally keep Clemmie.

Read here. I specifically posted about this near the end of page #2. Cheers!

I remember one time long ago I annihilated an Omaha in my Molotov. He was wondering what the [expletive] one-shotted him if all the battleships were on the other flank! 
Kirov is a lovely CL though, love the firepower.
