I have seen a lot of post on ships leaving the Armory. Thunderer being one. I have the coal with a coupon that I could get a ship but I already have Thunderer. Anyone know what will replace Thunderer? What other ships might be added?

 

 

Are the FXP ships changing too? I have 1.2 million FXP but already have a Musashi. Haven't really loved the EU line of DDs.

Friesland has been fun, if you’re fine with a ‘YOU get spam! THEY get spam! EVERYBODY gets spam!’ destroyer.

Being top tier against T7 in the Friesland is so fun it feels dirty.  I had a match with 4 DDs per side and all the red DDs decided to wander into my hydro despite seeing their comrades melted.  Wiped the red's DD's less than 5 minutes into the match.  Blowout commenced.

Without a high alpha strike it can be rough at times though.  Its AP can shred unsuspecting cruisers too.

Absolutely correct. Without torpedoes, all Friesland can do is spam HE/AP.

Kind of sucked at first, but after I learned the importance of ‘sharing the love,’ (HE/Fire spam,) and recognized the importance of knowing when to make like Sir Robin and ‘Run awaaaaaaaay!!!’ it became a lot more fun.

As far as BBs are concerned, there's Marco Polo in the works; a design with 3x3 406mm guns. My guess is this will be the new Georgia.There's also Vampire II tested, resource completely uknown.

Personally I'd like to see Kronshdadt return; it's hardly OP, and could fill in the gap of Alaska somewhat.

Any word on Kitakami?  She entered ST in 0.9.7.  I have enough Research Bureau points, steel, coal, and Free XP for whatever comes next, and already have everything scheduled for departure (well, except Somers for steel).  I have been holding it to see what happens with Kitakami.  She will be punishing to play, as any and every mistake and hit taken will have severe consequences (tier 4 hull facing tier 10's)...but she is unique.  And with 250 ships in port, that is what it takes to get me interested.

None sound particularly interesting. Especially a high tier us CL with 12-5" and 10 torps. Smollensk seems better in every way and DD gun armed cruisers are taking a big hit in the skill rebork. Smolly gets 16x130 that shoot at 4.5 sec with a flatter trajectory ALL THE TIME. Smoke trumps DFAA and Smolly gets a choice.

Lots of secondaries on the French BB but short range and the rebork treatment of secondary builds are factors. No french flavor consumables either.

I don't do CVs.

Friesland is a one trick pony, but when you get to use the trick, you need to take a shower afterwards.

Ships that will be North of 300,000 coal and that will wave bye-bye to 35,000 steel.

There is also Laplland in the works. Looks like a Halland...but worse.

Wasn’t LapLand just Halland or Smaland in testing phase?

Seriously considering it, but I think I will wait until just before she is pulled, to see how much the skill rework actually affects her.

But sometimes... you can find yourself behind enemy lines 7 km from a broadside Smolensk who is currently spamming your BB line over an island and looking 180 degrees away from you! LOAD AP, one-way ticket to Citadel City.
