Talked about on the WOWS stream and just posted to Dev Blog. New Dockyard for 10.7 with the T8 Dutch Cruiser De Zeven Provinciёn. Also, new perma camos for Missouri and FDR, new Captains, flags, patches, etc...  No word on how to get them yet.

No idea who Klaas Janssen is supposed to be, other than a WG fantasy captain with the single most Dutch sounding name they could think of.

4500 dubs for a T8 premium of a brand new nation. Right now with 8 6in guns and a 7.5 sec reload, even speed boost, stealth, Airstrike, and superheal is gonna struggle to overcome that. At least it looks cool and is the new king of Dakka.

Interesting looking patches for the Missouri (not sure why we need 5 of them,) but I really like the flag.

Dare I hope for a limited time availability of the Mizzou?  Fingers crossed.

Inb4 Missouri in the auction for some insane amount of doubloons. Or better yet, they’ll list is for a super low doubloon price knowing full well people are going to bid like crazy for it.

I would be extremely disappointed...but the possibility is definitely there.

Unless the Missouri camo has some different economic bonuses I don't see a reason to get it.  Good for those who want it though.

The AA will get D7P heavily bought outright, if unchanged from what I last saw.

True, but I mean it’s not just a Camo, you have a flag and a bunch of patches.  Wouldn’t be the first time I ended up with a Perma Camo for a ship I don’t own.

...Ok, real talk, that is a NICE looking cruiser. I will definitely be doing this Dockyard event (as if I ever don't do them :P)

Now if only they'd buff De Zeven Provinciёn. Last I saw, the stats were seriously underwhelming for a T8 CL. 7.5 sec reload is way too long for 8x 152mm; we have other T8 CLs with 12x 152mm and the same or better reload. Particularly when D7P also has very thin armor and a relatively limited consumable set. Heal is nice for a T8 cruiser, but doesn't really seem like enough to make up for the unimpressive overall stats.

At the a minimum she should have 6 sec main gun reload. And seeing as the rest of Dutch cruisers get Hydro + DFAA it's odd that she doesn't. While radar would be more thematically appropriate to a 1953 CL than calling in air support from 1937 bombers, I'm not sure I'd recommend that since we already have more than enough radar cruisers. Maybe do something unique like have their airstrike be a few Hawker Hunters doing a rocket attack instead of T.Vs dropping bombs? That'd make D7P's airstrike more timeline-appropriate to her design and also primarily an anti-DD weapon which is already her main role as a CL. Though I know having jet fighters in the game in any capacity would also be controversial.

I think it's more like a special commander and less like a unique one. The George Does and so forth with an improved skill but no unique skill, tracers, or pennant.

I can foresee it being free. A year or two ago they had some event where the reward was a Musashi permacamo, so there is precedent for having event rewards be a permacamo that is unusable for a large number of players.

The source of confusion is pretty clear, they refer to him as a unique commander, after all.

Thanks AT for the update!

However, why is WG creating an entire new Nation for the Dutch? Why not simply a branch in the Pan European line? Because we all know the Dutch were a MAJOR naval power during the time frame of this game - you know, all the absolutely pivotal engagements they were in changed the course of history! .... not.

(Freaking idiotic decision making going on at WeeGee :fish_palm:)

They keep changing it too much. I fell for Hizen, what a terrible ship after deadeye was removed. 

Going to wait on this one.

Wow, she's a beauty!   
But I don't want to do another dockyard!!!   
Said the same thing though when the XF-6 dockyard event popped and still I bit on that one. 

Not sure why I did that one.
