Where’s all the hype for the Italian cruisers?

I’m kind and a noob so this may sound arrogant, but where’s all the excitement for the Italian cruisers? Usually when a new line comes out everyone’s talking about it but the last thing posted about the new line was done so like a week ago. I know that the introduction of submarines is big news, but still....

Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)

The lastine was released over 3 lines, no sense getting excited over content that 4 months from being in the game.

People are exhausted from grinding steel and coal ships. Too burnt out to get hyped about another grind atm.

More cruisers! Woo Woo! Im hyped. But no idea when they come out. Plus I dont work for marketing, so trying to sell someone on hype isnt my thing.

Wargaming is pushing out so many new ships and lines that it's hard to get hyped at all anymore.

They're Cruisers.  They're not as popular as Battleships, which are the most played ships in the game.

 

Every time a BB Line releases, MM in the game is affected because of the glut of the new BBs being grinded on.  That's not so with Cruisers, DDs, much less the rare CVs.

Early access Italian cruisers, you know the missions with a tiny chance to drop from a container, are scheduled for patch 8.9, which should drop Oct 14th-16th. So the line starting at T1, should probably start mid Nov on patch 8.10. The high tiers may or may not come out in 8.10.

SAP will be strong until it’s nerfed back down. Then these cruisers will be meh. I tried them in test and wasn’t impressed. High alpha plus slow reload isn’t super fun but I’ll wait and see I guess.

I'll have to try them myself to get an opinion of them. I don't own any of the premiums so I have no idea how they play.

It's been a while since SAP has been really talked about.  They still can get bounced as if they were AP and no fire chance still, right?

Thanks to my son, I have a fairly good idea that MTG is Magic the Gathering.

Dang, I'm old when my child has to translate the internet for me. :Smile_teethhappy:

No HE. Slow reload. New ammo type. Not getting to excited about it. Plus too much grinding recently.  I’m going to take a month or so and just enjoy playing the ships I like

Yeah but they tuned it up between the test where we got to try them and now. Less likely to bounce and higher damage on DDs. They’ll probably end up tuning the DD damage down before release or shortly after.

It has been spoken about in the Dev blog but not much further, but I am SUPER EXCITED!!!

 

I do not care too much about using them, but I am looking forward to fighting something new

Of all the tech tree stuff that has been released this year, only the Italian cruisers have my interest. Everything else has kind of been a bust, a few interesting premium ships, but so far the free ships released have been met with a resounding "Meh" from the players. 

I love cruisers and this new line has the potential of rekindling my interest in the game. A bit of a a forlorn hope, but hopeful nonetheless.

I used to get hyped for new lines in 2015/2016/2017. These days one more line means one more set of time-gated directives to stretch out my time playing the game, farm enough of yet another temporary currency to get some better-than-normal content from the armory. Rinse and repeat every couple of months. It get's old really fast and makes me want to just ignore the rewards altogether instead of encourage me to play.

I remember when just the lines being interesting was already enough incentive for me to play more than normal when a new one was released. French cruisers with that fast open water playstyle, UK CLs with smoke, german BBs tanky and with good secondaries. Those were new concepts at the time of their release and it was great discovering their playstyle and peculiarities. These days when I get to actually play the new line I'm already burned out from all the directives/daily missions/what not that came before.  

No thanks, I already have a job IRL.

Right here I've wanted the RM since I started this game I have 3 of the Italian premiums and want more

    I am saddened that WG treated the RM in this manner like France and pan Asia get trees first?

    I want Italy lol. 

    Also discouraged by the actual entry of subs into the game before the RM Subs don't belong here not sure how any cruiser (main) is supposed to deal with that. Especially Italian cruisers.

Yeah they can be bounced, but they have higher angles than normal AP shells, so you'll need to angle steeper to bounce them. They also have 0 fire chance, ITCA can't start fires with their main batteries. They also have less pen but more damage than normal AP.
