Maybe because American ships generally didn’t have torpedoes IRL, and Japanese naval doctrine placed a large emphasis on large torpedo attacks? Most Japanese cruisers and destroyers had torpedoes, so not sure why you are getting upset that a Japanese cruiser line has torpedoes. 
 

Also, why on earth would you think that ships you buy on test servers would transfer to live? I highly doubt that you using a coupon on a test server (if the armory was even available to use them in) somehow caused you to lose a coupon on live.

the test sever and the normal server don't use the same accounts so you anything you get doesn't transfers, unless it's it ships on the live one. 

you have two options, quit the game which you should or take a break

If you're going to have a go at WG for something, that's all well and good; but posting flagrantly wrong stuff or overexaggerating in a manner that can easily be called out has the unfortunate effect of people not taking you seriously, which is NOT a good thing to happen when you have legitimate grievances.

I find what's in bold difficult to believe, although you're free to put in a service ticket and see what happens.

I would also like to echo what someone else already said about PTS purchases not echoing back to the live server. It doesn't for tech-tree ships; what makes you think it should be the case for premiums?

IRL? Did you really say that? IRL (in real life) disappeared many years ago. CVs that don't burn, AA that shoots at the rear planes of a squadron, miraculous planes that appear in the ocean to drop little parachute bombs or depth charges, 68 kph torpedoes that didn't arrive until 1983 IRL, etc. Let us NOT have a discussion about 'in real life'.

Incorrect. The Dutch, Polish, Argentine, and Brazilian cruisers also don't have torps. The Long Lances on the Japanese ships were fake from the very beginning, having the fast speed setting but the slow speed setting's range. Less than 1/of the Nihon Kaigun had them, that's true, but that's because much of any country's navy wouldn't fit in the game. Subchasers, transport submarines, AA boats, river gunboats, barges, training/repair/maintenance vessels.

So you're changing the goalposts? You think Russian ships need a buff? Nice try.

how about fixing the 1's we do have in game  west Virginia  to start with

There is nothing wrong with USS West Virginia. I know several people who enjoy her, and to me it looks like you're just pointing fingers at a ship you don't like. You have 8 total battles in that ship. I won't take you seriously.

Very sad that you enter with this opinion 2 YEARS after we are introduced to battle pass...

Also pretty sad that you thought you could buy a ship on one server and it would show up on ALL servers...that has NEVER been how it works.

The IJN 610mm Torpedoes have a range of 40.4km? Last I checked, Shimakaze's torps only have 20km range, which is roughly HALF the maximum range of the Long Lance. Also, the speed of ALL torpedoes not just the long lances were beefed up. Some to a smaller degree.

I would argue that doesn't count as a BB. And remember: you always have one torpedo :Smile_izmena:

Your entire post is an argument about IRL.

And I am sympathetic to that argument, but ultimately that's how it's classified in-game.

It's almost like the US knew that torps was just another thing that could blow up and take out a ship, look at that Mogami class from Midway and you'll understand why the US went away from torps on cruisers

to most of you that replied ...  when you do enough testing your account assets do join together  ships will and also coupons   ... but not money or free xp or gold   i have all my premiums on test server and even tech tree ships that r not on liver server    and as far as  torps go  the Russian long torps r 8 k  most of them r 4 k......  now American bb's   Texas had torps   and far as the constellation  go's its made out of glass and everyone knows it .... now the west Virginia  is broken ....  that ship could not hit the broadside of s barn   and there is many forums about fixing that ship so do your homework before commenting  wargaming has admitted it was crap      they    fixed the kranstadnt  when that came out it was horrible ... now the American cruiser that where listed  7 of them dont have any smoke with poor concealment  with short range torps  im just saying it would be nice for it to be a little  more even   for example  the 2 jap hybrid ships have torp plane's  that cause nice damage and the Kearsage has rockets with low   damage     if need be i can post a pick of all of my premiums on test server

Even at the battle of Samar, 1 5inch shell, probably from an escort CV hit the torps on an IJN CA and knocked it out of the battle and it was later sunk by aircraft.  Having torpedoes on a ship gives it a chance to fight above its class, but it also puts a small magazine on the deck of a ship.

This I agree with... kinda. Disappointed about the new Commonwealth ship being tested in the new patch. It's another paper ship. There are SO MANY legitimate ships that could have been included from the history of all the navies that make up the commonwealth, but WG decides to make one up from scratch.

There are no real Commonwealth cruisers to add that are TIX or TX. (The real Commonwealth cruisers top out at TVII or TVIII. This isn't knock on Commonweath specifically, there are very few real cruisers or battleships in that tier range period, WG set the standards for those classes impossibly high by including Yamato & Des Moines way back at the beginning.) Unfortunately WG (and most of the playerbase tbh) mostly only cares about high tiers.

and as far as  torps go  the Russian long torps r 8 k  most of them r 4 k......

And how fast are those in comparison to the Long Lancers?

now American bb's   Texas had torps 

Those torps went like 27 knots. Not a single DD in the game is that slow. Most cruisers & carriers aren't that slow! Texas as depicted in the game is from the year 1944, 18 YEARS AFTER THOSE TORPEDO TUBES WERE REMOVED. Perhaps do your homework before commenting. Speaking of which...

now the west Virginia  is broken ....  that ship could not hit the broadside of s barn   and there is many forums about fixing that ship so do your homework before commenting 

I used to play with the (now disbanded) [THULU] clan in WV + WV + Ryujo divisions(you can probably guess who the Ryujo player was). All of those I played with agreed the West Virginia is a good ship. We regularly got top scores in Random. We still do, when we meet up. Again, you have 99 battles in that ship. You DIDN'T win...10 of them. Just because you don't like it, doesn't mean your word is fact(or that everyone else has to care). 

Also, if you don't like the ship, why do you have close to 100 battles?!

now the American cruiser that where listed  7 of them dont have any smoke with poor concealment  with short range torps

So?

Still fun for me.

USN doctrine decided against using torpedos on their cruisers and battleships.  Their destroyers had torpedoes.  Yes, the IJN CLs have powerful torps.
Russian cruisers and destroyers have torpedoes.  "Suicide" range for them til higher tiers.

Yes, torpedoes take a bit of practise to dodge, but it's not overly difficult if you pay attention.

instead of making. new  fake ships  how about fixing the 1's we do have in game  west Virginia  to start with

Sorry, what's wrong with West Virginia, exactly?

  and battle pass is nothing but a money grab   very  sad  ...i will longer be testing anymore do to the rewards not being paid and the rewards have gotten so cheap its not worth the time

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

     1 other thing wargaming while on the testing server i bought the light cruiser   Marblehead and used the coupon  and what do u know went back to the normal server   ...no Marblehead but coupon was used   pretty dam sad   thats' about it im sure  it will get  deleted for telling the truth   

Did you think the hundreds of millions of credits, thousands of gold and millions of XP would transfer over too?

Texas had torps   and far as the constellation  go's its made out of glass and everyone knows it

Yes, Texas had torps, and in reality they got removed.  They decided not to have them in WoWs because they were fixed torpedoes, and you'd have to turn a really slow ship to get the torpedoes aimed...  Yeah, Constellation is a glass cannon, so?

that ship could not hit the broadside of s barn

Sounds like a you problem.
