Hi,

Here are some ships I'd like to see in WOWS in the future. There a few more but don't have time to research them. Feel free to add your own. 


HMS Exeter - heavy cruiser

I think you have your definition of what constitutes a heavy cruiser mixed up.

HMS Rodney is a battleship armed with 16 inch guns and a top speed of around 21 knots.  She is painfully too slow to be a cruiser and far too heavily armed and protected. 

Renown and Repulse are the same class of vessel, close to being identical twins.  While they have cruiser like speed, their six 15 inch guns are far more powerful than anything you'd see shipped on a cruiser and, after their 1920's and 1930's refits, are much better protected as well.  This ships fit neatly into the definition of being a battlecruiser. 

The Nelson, which is Rodney's sister ship, is already available in the game so I'm not sure that WG is going to be in a particular hurry to roll her out. 

Repulse will probably be added to the game either when WG adds the Battlecruiser tree to the British line or as a Premium ship.  I don't see them adding Renown. 

Yahagi would make an interesting IJN Light Cruiser. I'd expect her to be added sometime in the future as a mid-tier Premium.

Id like to see the Dutchman, Marie celeste, and the Black Pearl show up as passers by after a monsoon,, 

Heck,, random life rafts that if you stop and render aid, you get a 10 point captain,,,, or Steven Segull comes back into game,,, (imho that would be the bomb)

I used to build scale warship models and still interested in in the hobby. I'm almost 100% sure that the Rodney and Nelson used to be referred to as battle cruisers. I remember thinking this was strange because of the size of these ships. 

I'd like to see Rodney rolled out as a non- prem version of the Nelson.

Exeter - Yes, the British didn't go in for CA's as much as other countries did so a full CA tree is unlikely.

Renown - Yes.

Rodney - No, I am not sure if you are talking about the Nelson's sister ship or the never completed Admiral class BC but either way we already have them in the game.

Repulse - No, it is a Renown class.

Yahagi - Yes, heck I would even go for the 1911 ship.

Lotta differing definitions of what is a BB and what is a battle cruiser.

Exeter.  Yes.  I would like her. She would get played if for nothing more than the fame she got fighting Graf Spee. What tier?

But the Nelson and Rodney are pretty solidly on the BB side of that line. Like, zero ambiguity.

I am going to say tier 6 because she is only 8500 standard tons and because she should meet the Graf Spee.

Yes she should meet Spee!  Also those IJN ships that finally got her in a long running fight. Revenge. I knew a bit about her.  I would get her in a heartbeat.

Ok, how about "has to exceed a top speed of 21 knots" for starters.  You'd have a better case classifying the Missouri as a Battlecruiser, at least she's fast enough for the job.

A proper West Virginia 1944 refit and South Dakota class 1920.  USS Hawaii in the form of CA-2D as a tier 10 coal ship as it was stopped in mid-construction after all.

T5, like Furutaka.  Not overmatched Aoba.
