I noticed something today in Blitz: Ise has been added as a premium and yes, she has an air wing.  I understand the mechanics of Blitz are different and a little more conductive to such a ship type, but I believe it would be fairly simple to implement something into the current main game (just have an airgroup like a CV bound to the 3 key).  My question is, do you guys think she might be added to the main game?  Would you like to see her in the main game?

Hybrids are in discussions since three years...

With the CVs being redone - unlikely any time soon :-(

How does the gameplay work for Ise in Blitz?

...This irks me more than a bit... Ise's easily my favorite BB cosmetically, what with her weirdly cute... hat. Even if they just gave her something like Musashi's planes, I'd love to have her!

...Quiet, Mutsu. You're my favorite because you're a goof with single launch torps in silly-bad locations for how the game works.

I would love for Ise and similar ships to be added in the game. The issue is they require a lot of overhaul and balance, and will generate tons controversy

 

For now we can just wait and hope

I don’t have her, but Blitz has a little tab for switching armamanent between main battery, secondaries (because they are player controlled) and torps, so I would guess the planes are just another tab for Ise.

Agree with this completely, except for the sad face; does anyone have a "Thank God" meme?

I think the issue is WoWs ability to screw up even the most basic thing and make it both complicated and painful; just look at the last three years of CV play if you don't believe that. And now you want them to add a ship which combines the BB, the most catered to ship in the game, with a CV, the most hosed over ship in the game; how could that ever be a problem?

I think In all the excitement people are missing what Ise could actually do.  She was never intended nor able to operate as any sort of conventional carrier.  She could only operate float planes and while her catapults could launch specially converted aircraft, they had to land on an actual carrier or land station.  In game terms for World of Warships, that means Ise would have at best consumables for catapult fighters and catapult spotting aircraft, possible many of them, but nothing even close to an actual carrier squadron.  

In the end Ise was an interesting concept and possibly useful for support or perhaps ASW operations, but really a poor use for a ship armed with 14 inch guns.

Hey,

Ise and cruiser Tone would make for a unique and interesting playstyle if done correctly; but it seems unlikely anytime soon.  I see no reason why they could treat the aircraft like any other fighter/spotter use.  Just put 4 aircraft max up at any given time, with the same duration as all others and all guns work like any other.  Time to give the IJN line a decent BB, since the others suck (Kii) compared to their competitors.  Both ships could be good premium candidates IMHO.
