I realize WG is throwing a ton of stuff out.

However isn't it about time WG give us a sneak peak of the next tech tree line already? Or let some more juicy tidbits be datamined from the client/st client? I will celebrate our new Pan-Asian Cruisers, Soviet aircraft aviation destroyers with 457mm anti-capitalism rifles, Pan-European line, etc. with the least amount of salt possible. morton-lossy.gif :cap_happy:

Heck, I'd be happy at this point with just knowing what the new line is going to be, i.e. French DDs, Italian cruisers, etc.  I can wait a bit for the juicy previews.  But the merest crumb, i.e. the nation and ship type, would be nice.

Well the Austin video showed the one poor LatAm representative saying WG does love LatAm so LatAm cruisers confirmed? :cap_like:

Based on the fact we haven't heard of anything other than the RN carriers, and the RN DDs launched relatively late (October, instead of September or August), I'm thinking we won't get a fourth line this year. Based on the way WG's acting re the CV rework, I wouldn't be surprised if that launches in early January and our next line is the RN CVs

Swiss battlecruisers.

Is that a speed boat with a machine gun?  Or a ferry carrying a couple of tanks?

Those are the most stealth ships out there. No one has every taken a picture of one or even seen one. Legend has it that Bigfoot Captains one. :Smile_teethhappy:

Filled with pikemen. It's meant to work with the new boarding mechanics.

No. A Swiss Army knife of course.

For those who like to grind up 19 point commanders in advance, this is spot on.

Pros:

Super good concealment. Almost no superstructure.  Armor over match other ships at any angle. Can shoot thru islands.

mehs:

agile but awkward. No turrets and fixed guns with perfectly flat trajectory.

Balans comrade:

 Only able to fire when stationary.

I don't think anyone has a clue (maybe even WGing) what the next line(s) are going to be. Going by leaks, the next line might be the RN CV's, as they had both an official DevBlog post a month ago, and we know the CV Rework is getting closer. We've seen not even an inkling of any other line, except maybe the RU BB's which iirc ~half the line was finished more than a year ago and then put on hold.

Baring that, you could call the 'reworked' CV IJN and USN lines as the 'next' lines as they too have been described and explained. But I wouldn't hold my breath on a French DD, or Italian Cruiser/DD, or any other major lines in the next few months (Q2, most likely Q3 2019 before you see a non-CV line).

let me help

RN CVs

VMF BBs

then probably

MarineN DDs

then maybe

Italian CLs

 

My best guess.

There's a funny story about a JTFEX about 20 years ago where an LSD with an M1 Abrams in its well deck got credited with a gun kill on an "enemy" destroyer...

In seriousness, after all the premiums we have gotten, La Regia Marina is long overdue.

I can agree with this.  I have no special reason for caring about the RM either way.  But with 4 premium ships available, I think that it's time and past time for an Italian line to arrive.

I wish they loved LatAm enough to get them their own server so the no habla English crowd could take their potato computers and 200ms ping somewhere else.

Poland as well. How long has it been since Blys has been released? They have enough for a single DD line. That ship literally is currently serving no point.

Nah.  WG should create a Pan-European tree, and include the smaller nations' navies in it.   Nations/navies such as Poland, the Netherlands, Austria-Hungary, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Turkey, and so on.  OTOH, Italy had a sufficiently large navy that it deserves its own tree.

Poland can hold it's own line, thats a fact. Sweeden can with just destroyers, which WG said they might do. Spain COULD but you would need 4 paper ships, but then again french cruisers have alot of paper in them. The rest you are correct about.

That would suck for the server population.
