RN CL (non-Belfast) Premium When?

Straight forward question, really.

Not only is Belfast permanently pulled from the store and never be available to new players, but she's also quite different in playstyle than other RN CLs given her lack of heal, lack of torpedoes, HE spamming firepower, and radar+smoke combo that absolutely everyone loves and wishes to see more of.

Soooo ... given Belfast will no longer be available to those who never purchased her originally, this basically means the tech tree line is devoid of a premium captain trainer and money maker. Shouldn't we be seeing one by now?

Just bring back the Payfast and be done with it.:Smile_teethhappy:

Not like it's massively out performing any more.

This argument is not without merit.

I think normal power creep and the radar overload has made the Belfast far less fearsome than it used to be.

Unfortunately it seems like we no longer have a stat site that allows you to get a performance snapshot of the last few weeks for ships, so no way to show how much it's changed.

I would like the Exeter as well. But also the Dido... similar to the Atlanta or flint but maybe tier 5 with only AP similar to the Daring. HE at tier 5 or 6 is risky with that rate of fire is too strong. 

 

Its only a 5-6 second reload, but 10 guns on a broadside will still hurt DDs. And if it gets the 7km torps it should fit well with like 8.8km concealment.

Problem with Dido is her firepower and rate of fire would only be balanced at around tier 4 or 5 at best. This makes for a poor ship for purposes of grinding credits and completing missions.

I'd personally love to see a T7 or T8 premium with a 4x3 gun setup, but obviously tweaked to be better and worse than Fiji or Edinburgh at different things.

I am sad that a historic museum ship is not available for others to purchase. 

I feel that WG should re release the Belfast in the game

But make it different from the current Belfast. Put it at t8 in its 1944 fit with he, torps, no heal, and have the consumables give an option between either smoke or hydro. 

Rename the old Belfast as Belfast 1959 and name the new Belfast Belfast 1944 to differentiate it in game.

Spoiler

And then give an option to win the old Belfast with a mission after purchasing the new Belfast... Jk
