This post is really just a well-reasoned request to Wargaming to change the name of the T6 West Virginia in the Dev Blog to USS Maryland. Maryland was a worthy ship in its own right but it didn't stand for what West Virginia did. West Virginia is all about reincarnation from the ashes of Pear Harbor like a phoenix. It was the most damaged ship to be resurrected from Pearl Harbor and was rebuilt to be better than when she started. It was a symbol of the USN rising from the ashes. The T6, as originally-built version that you proposed really doesn't do justice to USS West Virginia, what it went through, and what it became. The ship went from this:

to this:

I understand you may not be able to do the latter version as a premium right now. All I ask is you keep the West Virginia name free and consider doing the ship in its final form as a premium in the future. I think most of us would appreciate it and would show that appreciation by buying it.

When I see WeeVee in game I want to see the version that rose from the grave.  We owe her that honor.

I’m not buying WV after she’s been nerfed into the ground and shoehorned in at T6. Waiting for #WV44 is a big part of my interest in WoWs. This ticks me off to the point of going to play something else. Oh well, maybe WG will surprise us.
