Sorry, I did a cursory search and didn't find a date.

8.4 is looking to drop on Wed, May 29th and is expected to drop the full line.

No specific date as of yet, but I'd bet money that it'll be 0.8.4, which should be dropping at the end of the month going by the duration of this half of the Honor and Glory event.

I'm guessing once Russian BBs come out its French DDs then Italian cruisers hopefully?

We have nothing on Italian cruisers, as far as I know. It could just as easily be Italian destroyers or battleships. :(

Or, better yet, no Italy ever!

French DDs are very likely the next line, summer to beginning of fall. Nothing heard about Italian cruisers yet, so really depends on what info WG got on Italian ships. The less info they got, the longer it would take to make them. At some point, I'm sure the labor to create them would outweigh the return on them.

 

If we don't get the Italian cruisers, there are alternate CV lines, other line splits, Pan-Am, and/or Pan-EU. I would think alternate CV lines would probably be the quickest as you have the old odd tier CVs already made.

They tend to cruisers first when doing a new nation. But who knows it could easily be a second Russian cruiser tree or a pan Asian cruiser tree next.

The only line to note be a cruiser line first was the PA DD line and it did still start with a cruiser. I would be shocked if Italian DDs or BBs came out before Italian cruisers.

 

Heavy cruiser UK split. IJN cruiser split. US BB split. UK and KM BC lines as a split or separate class. DE/FF lines! No wait, that would have to wait for subs. :Smile_teethhappy:

Is Pobeda expected to launch with the line, or later? I have no plans to get Kreml. It's not that I don't think it's an incredibly powerful ship, but the run and gun style has always suited me better.

Given that it's still in testing and not on the tech tree with a "SOON" label, I'm thinking later. If it was going to drop with the rest of the line it would have been popping up starting about the same time as them.

I anticipated as much. Oh well. Not that I don't expect Pobeda to get nerfed. But even if it's, by degrees, close to what it is now, it's going to be amazing.

I have a feeling that MM is going to be flooded with Sovietsky players who are waiting for exactly the same thing as I am.

A few days ago (maybe a bit longer?) you said you were done and "uninstalling".  I am glad you found something in the game that you are interested in.

It's impossible to know, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Pobeda does not release with the line.  In a recent Q and A Sub_Octavian was asked about Pobeda, and he answered by stating: 

Quote

"It's a WIP ship; pretty soon her testing will be stopped, then feedback and data will be studied and then GD will decide what to do with her for then next test stage. With most obvious options being: to continue with the same concept, but change it to be better/more balanced/better perceived or to try different concept."  

That doesn't sound like a ship that's going to be ready for release in ~10 days time, but I could be wrong.  *Assuming the entire line releases with 8.4

Regarding the Kreml, I disagree.  In its current state the Kreml is pretty poor.  It's not meta or competitively viable, and unlike the Kurfurst it doesn't even get meme secondary builds to offer redeeming value as a "just for fun yolo ship".  Its close range dispersion is not as good as advertised, which makes the ship and its intended play-style pointless.  I know Flamu can be controversial around these parts, but I think he put it best when testing the latest round of buffs to the Kreml.....

Just release it and balance after®

You know, per normal around here. 

I don't mind waiting. I've been doing pretty well in Vlad (61% solo random WR, even with horrible tiering, is nothing to sniff at).
