Think we will ever see USS Maine as a low tier premium?

I don’t know. I have always wanted this ship. I mean this thing started the Spanish American War. I think it would be a cool low tier premium for fun.

I doubt it. The Maine is an even older design than the Mikasa so she'd be an awful BB, and WG hasn't implemented any armoured cruisers into the game yet.

I would severely doubt it.  4X254 mm,  6X152 mm, and some 57mm and smaller guns are all she had.  The Mikasa - T2 BB - had 4X305 mm, 14X152 mm, and 18X80 mm guns.  The USS Maine (ACR-1) really would struggle to do much.  She did have some good belt armor, but I wonder how much of it she actually had.

Mind you, that is my 2 cents worth!  Have a good day!

Who knows? We'll probably see it before we do a Tier IX FXP DD release lol :Smile_teethhappy:

No, old design than the oldest ship we have in the game (mikasa) not a good turret layout (would have to get broadside to fire 4 guns) not many secondaries to counter main guns. I would like to see the Olympia though

WWI Olympia would be a neat little boat. Dewey's Olympia, not so much.

she was designed just to counter a brazilian battleship, pre ww2 usa was a different beast.

to tell the truth,it's easier to WG to make an operation where you rescue USS pueblo from "some bad dictator" than to get  USS maine.

USS Maine makes Mikasa look like Yamato. Even in a "world of predreadnoughts" game with Dreadnought herself at Tier 10, she wouldn't be higher than a Tier 6.

More than any of that, it’s a ship that won’t bring in much revenue.  Better for WG to spend similar resources creating something they can monetize.

I’d rather see the USS Connecticut make into the game.  It’s more on par with Mikasa and I think the second to last Pre-Dreadnaught.

as a native Mainer I’d love to have the Maine in my port, but that is all she would ever be — port queen.  Tier 1-2 ships would eat her alive.

Uh. You need to re-evaluate what the current T1 ships can do.

Same.

1v1 against any of the Tier 1 ships, you'd still have to cheat in order to win.

She could be done. Give Maine wyoming gun handling and improved maneuverability or secondary gun firing range and she's a wrap.
