Expect to see a lot of new ships chucked into the Research Bureau going forward. WG can’t really monetize Coal or Steel, but RB points? Open your wallets, whales. :cap_old:

You can't whale the RB without actually having played the game quite a bit. That converted FXP has to come from somewhere.

Yea I saw the paolo in the notes. It just doesn’t make sense to me. If you are trying to bring out a new line Wouldn’t you want the first ship to be more readily available So you can get data? My only guess is they couldn’t find a way to make her work and that the tech tree line will be vastly different

Yes and it's easy to do...

1. reset a line

2. research all the ships with FXP (you can repeat step 1 and 2 as many time as you have FXP) 

3. play each ship one game in co-op to collect all the RB points

4. turn in points for RB ship.... easy

I do it on the IJN gunboat DD line. I don't really play those ships, so not having them at any point when they're reset doesn't hurt me like missing any of the lines I grinded to Tier X because I enjoy them would.

Hopefully Paolo Emilio ends up being 2,500 RP or so, since by the time they're done nerfing it, it'll be a Tier III at best.

I am currently regrinding the American heavy cruiser line to get Siegfried. On the whole, the ships in the RB are not a game changer and probably not worth the effort. I decided to get Siegfried because it is a large cruiser with accurate battleship caliber guns and torpedoes. After that is complete, this not much in there to be interested in.

It does seem like a strange place to put the first of a line. Has the ship gotten any better?

Oh, yeah.  The tech tree line should be quite different.  The Paolo is really a Capitani Romani class CL, but for some reason WG decided to call it a DD.  It may actually work out in the Paolo's favor when the new commander skills come out, since it will be able to use BFT and AFT (or whatever the new versions of these skills are called).  Other CLs with low caliber guns (Atlanta, Flint, Smolensk, Krasny Krym, Colbert, etc.)  will be screwed (to varying degrees - mostly Atlanta and Flint), since they will only be able to use cruiser skills, which don't include BFT and AFT

They have stated the price as 43000 research bureau points, THAT is NOT going to change

We'll just have to see how many times WeeGee pushes her down the stairs before release... Already the whole concept seemed not real viable at high tiers.

the listed price is in line with Research Bureau  pricing of other ships. The only other RB tier 9, Siegfried, is sold for 47 000.

A DD that's really a CL. So you have access to the mentioned skills. I think WG is not going to release Flint or Smol since the new CO skills will nerf them . he only way out is to reclassify the CL's as DD's.

There are tons of ships you can get for coal or credits. In fact I already obtained so many that I have no time to play them all. Another RP ship? Oh well--I'll just wait until WG gives it to me for free, maybe in SC, maybe in event. Or maybe WG will invent another way to earn RP and I'll unlock it. Who knows, I'm not in a hurry...

If Flint becomes a DD it better lose radar.

If Smol becomes a DD it better lose heal.

that ship honestly doesnt sound like itd be worth all the work for all those RB points, its a DD whose gimmick is rushing everyone if it wants to get torps off, the exact opposite of what a DD should be doing at high tier Randoms where just about every cruiser has Radar or Hydro, maybe itll be good in Coop, where bots will more than likely ignore that DD rushing up on it to fire at a ship on the other side of the map

i dont think Flint has Radar, i think it gave that up for smoke, Flint honestly gave up little in order to gain alot, Radar and 2 turrets i think is all it gave up in exchange for, longer range torps, smoke, and better AA

Wonder how much stuff WG can gate behind RB before they realize it more off putting by the player-base than not. 

:cap_haloween:These guys just never learn do they. 

I am not sure how off putting it really is.  I ran into a whole lotta Ohio's in this ranked.
