I guess this can be called my online screed/rant. I don't know about other peep's but has WoW's just forgotten about BB/CA/CL driver's? They seem to be catering to the DD crowd with event's and ship reward's. As I am not a DD driver, I don't really have much to fight for. There are no event's that I am aware of to have cruiser/battleship player's can be a part of that yield's anything good. They at least used to run event's on a regular basis for these ship type's. But I haven't seen anything recently. The russian BB event wasn't very eventful. It seem's all they are doing is pushing DD's at everyone with a token cruiser or BB thrown in to grab some cash. With the new focus on super cruiser's it seem's that the desire to have work through event's for ship line's has run it's course. I'm trying to care about ranked battle's(FAIL). If it wasn't for clan war's and mid tier play I wouldn't have anything to look forward to in this game anymore. 

That's my 2 cent's

Considering the current release is for French DDs, why would it be surprising that dds are a focus? BBs were a focus during the Russian BB release.

I seem to remember an influx of premium USN BB's recently. Too many actually, they all are starting to look the same. Then there was the Russian BB events not too long ago. The French before that. The British before that. Various free event BB's to earn like the Dreadnought... I can think of numerous BB centric events recently and years past.

You're already playing "World of Battleships". Now you want more?

Let the CV's, DD's and CL's get their numbers bolstered a bit first.

I guess my point was that I have alway's enjoyed the event's like the Duke of York/Bismark/and the other event's that had many stage's that peep's could use several diff. types of ship's in order to fufill the objective (I.E. premium style ship) and receive a specific ship. With that type of game style it was never boring. Also it had ship specific qualification's.

With all the stuff WoW's is throwing at the wall to see what stick's, These type's of event's are challenging as well as rewarding. 

Maybe they will have one in the near future, Hope spring's eternal!!

Gotta be patient. The Wheel of Warships turns slowly at times. But it does keep on turning. We have had a pretty steady rotation of all ship types in events over the last few years, I think. It will turn back toward your favorite eventually.

Respects,

Am

So now you know how DD players felt for years when there was one high tier reward DD. There still hasn't been a FXP premium DD released either...

There are Italian cruisers coming soon, so it will be a CA heavy event, so the BBs can get back to farming cruiser citadels.

Do you not remember the Russian battleships? Or the French battleships? Or the seemingly interminable USN cruiser split? Or the Italian cruisers that will most certainly have a similar early access event? Really?

And the next line is going to be Italian CAs.  I think that you're looking for a problem where none exists.

Hmm... Year of the BBs in WOWS was in 2017, 2018, and 2019...

Year of the DDs and CV, File no found 404.

RU BBs are the overpowered line.

I can think of 1 compelling reason we have more DDs in this game. 

Navies always had more DDs, unless you can find a Cruiser or Battleship class with 175 vessels in it then this is nothing more then a bad whine.

I play 'em all.  BB...CA...DD...CV.  Lots of fun to be had.  The real beauty are those times I get the feeling (unwarranted most of the time) that a type is running wild.  In that case, I'll either go with the counter and smash 'em...or go wild and join them.

All of those DD lines didn't come out back to back...there were plenty of other ship type lines introduced between them.

They just did Russian battleships and the next round is Italian cruisers.

I'm really hoping they give Roma the SAP shells to make her worth buying.   That will be some tricky messaging though.
