I was looking forward to seeing predreadnought battleships but ended up disappointed when the wargaming corporation never added it. They had no regard for people who love historical references. Please add the Potemkin and other predreadnoughts to the premium shop, stop withholding the model and add it already.

While I'm inclined to think the same, pre-dreadnoughts (or any ships from the 1890-1910 range) would likely need a whole multi-tiered sub-branch tech tree to make them viable and profitable for WG to justify adding them to the game.

Considering a T2 premium ship sells for less than $10 apiece, there would need to be a re-shuffling at the lower tiers to be able to sell them at viable multi-tiered prices.

Really, why do you want more pre dreadnaughts? They will be utter crap to play, have you played Mikasa?

It's a computer game, they don't have to be crap.  Maybe pair them with Japanese speaking cartoon chics with hooters and the idea will take off...

There hasn't been a new low tier premium ship since 2018. Wargrinding is only interested in WW2/postwar content. They're still salty about Tsushima anyway.

Mikasa wouldn't be utter crap if Wargrinding had not neglected her in the first place.

Which is why WG needs to simply create a World of Pre Dreadnoughts game as there are many ships and possibilities that can be done with such a concept.

I would like to see four sub tiers that have no connection to the regular tiers for the pre-Dreadnought era, roughly the late 1880's through roughly 1905. I think it would be quite popular.

No, they do have to be crap because balance. They can only exist at t2 due to the structure of this game and would have to be balanced with Mikasa and the other t2. They simply don't exist in this game.

How has Mikasa been neglected?

sub tiers don't seem viable imo, and I doubt there is enough demand for pre dreadnoughts for a whole game. 

But I could see pre-dreadnoughts maybe being viable for an in-game event along the lines of space boats and such.

The reason for sub tiers is there were only a few pre-Dreadnoughts that could stand in the line with Dreadnoughts and they were all German. I think there are enough of us that would be interested that it could fly.

A pre-Dreadnought event would be awesome but it would require a lot of work where the other events, space, apocalypse, etc have simply used re-skinned ships that are already in the game some times with minor tweaking to weapons.

They might sell for less, but the lower price is more affordable to the general customer and more likely to get a sale than an overpriced T8 monster. The problem is that WG has completely fumbled on supporting low tiers.

Speaking of which, can someone testify to the authenticy of this picture? Because if this is indeed official, that means they already have a Borodino model lying around that they are not using.

The Potemkin wasn't at Tsushima though AFAIK.

Still, the ship is from the tsarist era, something Wargrinding either hates or prefers to forget. As for Borodino, you can forget about it, for they've replaced it with this.

You have to realize the hours that go just into modelling these ships.  A T2 battleship likely will take a similar amount of time to model as a T8 battleship, and that doesn't even include testing or balancing.  So of course there is more merit to pushing higher tier premiums (whether we like it or not), as they have better return on investment for WG.

Yes I am aware of that ship. Still doesn't account for the Borodino from the other picture.

Like I said before, cheaper ships tend to sell more, so a higher tier ship is not necessarily a better investment. It's just banking on whales. This would not be a problem if the devs actually built up lower tiers instead of neglecting them.

Plus, that's not entirely true. Larger ships take longer to model than smaller ones simply because they have more details.

They have historical value and if they are fixed for gameplay, they might still serve a purpose, plus, I tried the Mikasa and I got more victories than defeats.

Sounds you only think people who play this game are tier 8-10s. 
 

a lil tier 2-3 for the new players might not be bad. Especially to bring new blood into the game.

My most played tiers are 6 and 7. I much prefer mid-tier games.
