West Virginia '41? Come on. It's okay to just stop development of the ship and not release it til you can do it correctly. I understand that you have the assets modeled already for the pre-war version, but nobody wants that. Just slow your roll on the ship and release the 1944 refit when it's ready. We waited for eons for Massachusetts and T-61, and folks are happy with the results. Forcing a junk ship down our throats to make a quick buck is not the way to do this. Please, just pull it out if the development cycle and get the thing right.

I've always wanted one of the prewar hulls, so much sleeker that the fat upgraded versions.  I'll be shelling out for it.  I agree with others though and suggest renaming it.

Putting the year after a ship is a silly idea. Now we can have 5 different ships, but they're the same ship,  with like 5 more aa mounts

No reason they can't put it on the shelf for awhile until they figure something out.  They did the same thing with T-61 and Massachusetts and those turned out to be alright.

It does seem to set an...odd...precedent, so yeah, I can agree with you (and others with similar opinions) here. The fact that they're listening and are now willing to do the late-war refit the community has so long desired speaks volumes, and I am glad for it.

That said, I also agree that the Tier VI version should perhaps just be named Maryland. It's what a lot of folks have been suggesting from the first.

Are WV'41 and Maryland really so identical that they wouldn't have to move texture artists or modelers back onto the project? WG (and a lot of players) seem very sensitive to such details, so I wonder whether the swap would be as simple as that.

Regardless, you can sort of tell how much slack WG has in their premium ship pipeline by looking at the devblog and counting the T8-and-below ships they have announced. If you can't name more than one or two, chances are they need this ship to fill a sales slot -- people complained quite a bit the last time there was a multi-month break in new ships, and I'd bet the actual loss in revenue was even more of an issue internally.
