Just a question:  For the same level DD's seem to be 1/2 the price as CA or BB's.  Any reason why?  Should not all tier 4 or 7, etc. ships cost the same?

More people want to be the big bad battleship as well, typically. Emphasis on bad.

They're smaller ships, take up less pixels. There's a price-per-pixel economy happening here.

Probably because battleships are grossly overpopulated and increasing premium prices is WG's way of

A) Milking the cash cow

B) Trying to incentivize BB mains to remember that there are 3 other ship types and to try playing them

and/or C) Trying to curb a grossly bloated population in 1/4th of the game's content whose grossly bloated status is actively damaging the quality of the game.

Because with the current state of the game no one would buy them otherwise.

You can say that until you're blue in the face, the fact that I play battleships proves you wrong.
