Good, a poll.  I know Hapa explained why they didn't want a T3, but the number of downvotes next to his profile said otherwise (at least to me).

In all fairness to Happa, he's probably right about the low player population at tier 3. But a lot of that is the Game's fault. They separated new and vet players so the newbs wouldn't get waffle stomped; they've left tier 3 totally vulnerable to tier 4 CVs which totally drives players away; the mechanics of the lower tiers, such as accuracy and dispersion, have been relegated to the absolute minimum possible to keep the game playable when in reality navies would have insisted that their ships perform better. 

Players have asked for pre-dreadnaughts since the game went live, and in the beginning we even had low tier premiums as well as lower tier contests and scenarios and campaigns. But the new lower tiered premium fountain has dried up and this last campaign is the only one in I don't know how long to include ships lower than tier 8, 9, and 10. It's about the money, and no one is saying the game shouldn't be about earning a profit, but these days it feels like it's ONLY about the money at times.

Why?  No one plays Tier 3 any more and to be honest, 99% of the ships at Tier 3 aren't all that fun.  Personally I feel the game doesn't really get going until tier 5 anyway.

Sadly, it is not worth the trouble. Same work implied in a T3 non existing italian BB might go for T5-T7 alternate USN BB line.

Its a tacit admission that tier III BBs (and most ships tier IV and below) are helpless against CVs. 

THATS a main reason for the low population in low tiers. I kept all my low tier ships and enjoyed playing them, but I now avoid all but a very few of them because I dont enjoy being wafflestomped by planes.

I voted yes because the Italians have been waiting forever to get their due and, by god, if everyone else got one then the Italians ought to get one too.
