Is this real? Did they just developed West Virginia 44 for blitz? and it's a Tier 7?

I don't keep up with WoWS Blitz development at all.

Uh go to the link.

Yes I know, I'm rather disturbed that Blitz got the WV 44 when there was so much clamoring over WV Premium for WoWS being NOT the '44.

I'd be down for another mediocre USN BB to smash from Tier VII.

Rado can tank if played correctly, plus if they make her a tier 7 mass...she will be doing the smashing. Some of those maps aren't really that large. Granted skill ceiling will be high to make up for her bad speed...but good guns...good secondaries...decent armor...god tier aa....yeah I'll take it.

I'm pretty sure that the other two variants of WoWs are basically live test for concepts that have the bonus of working with the twitchier nature of Mobile or control streamlining on Console.

  • True Manually Controlled Secondaries
  • BBCV Ise
  • WV'44
  • Sirius
  • Takao (Line)
  • AADF on Akizuki
  • Possibly Shinano as a T10 CV

A number of changes and adjustments seem to make sense for Mobile/Console, but can also be ported back to WoWs PC with some adjustment. BBCV Ise seems like a likely Premium once the CV overhaul is complete; depending on how they allow active shifting between Catapult Planes and the BB itself, similar to Steel Ocean. WV'44 is likely to be cloned over and released as a Premium, depending on how they balance her for T7 or T8. It's not impossible for WG to eventually add AADF on Akizuki/Kitakaze/Harugumo, even if it's just a variant of the regular AADF, just like how CVs have their own unique variant of AADF. Shinano can be a T10 under their new CV overhaul format, pending on how they make her viable at T10.

Blitz is also an awkward product with 1990s level graphics requirements to go with really simple hit boxes, penetration calculations, etc. So they can toss out some ships that would have issues in pc WoWS.

They are still going to take home a sinful amount of money at the end of the day.

Why does Blitz get so many cool things the devs seem too scared to implement here?

- Secondaries with genuine manual control.

- Ise in its hybrid-carrier configuration with functional dive bombers.

- West Virginia '44 edition.
