Sorry if this has been brought up already. If it was, I apologize for not digging deep enough. So was looking at some pics today of the New Mexico class BBs and saw something strange. Saw a pic of both the New Mexico and her sister ship Idaho both after their final refits. Saw something on Idaho's deck that New Mexico didn't. So, I went digging around some more and find out that Idaho is unique compared to her sisters. While her two sisters look like they kept their 5inch/51 secondary guns, Idaho's were removed to add ten 5inch/38 Mk 30 single barreled dual-purpose guns.

 

Does anyone else think she'd be a unique ship to be added in as a tier 6 premium? I don't know how many other people would buy her and what they think of her, but I would buy her just for her uniqueness compared to her sister ships. I would like to see what other people's thoughts are.

We don't want or need another NM clone. Arizona, which is being added soon, already performs 99% the same as the NM. Just loses 5 degrees of gun arc and aesthetically looks different. I wish people would ask for some actually unique US ships. Like their "cruiser killer" type large cruisers.

Who is this "We"? The more premium ships the better the overall game. I see nothing wrong with unique ships in the game and the Idaho, (Will be the butt of a lot of jokes) would make a good one.

We already have the Arizona. We don't need a 3rd NM clone. The only clone from the USN I personally would be interested in is maybe a South Dakota.

It would definitely be added in, but much later, due to it being mostly similar to the ingame new Mexico.

​I respect that you feel that way, however like mine, it is only an opinion.

I would love to see her added in one day. Perfectly fine with it being much later. They have bigger and better things to add in to the game in the future.

Well the thing is, my "opinion" is the correct one from a business perspective. I'm positive WG has bigger projects to work on, that will bring them more revenue, and add more actually new content, than model a 3rd NM clone.

​Actually, that could be argued as well... from a business perspective.

Indeed, while such ships are likely to be eventually added in, other, more important priorities need to be done before adding things like this in.

Except it really couldn't. Please come to terms with reality.

​I would venture a guess and say there are perhaps more ships to eventually add to the game than tanks for WOT.

Yes it could. However, please don't let me stop you from having a self inflated sense of importance of your opinion.

Personally, I would support a T7 West Virginia (Colorado-class).  Though supposedly her superior secondaries are not supposed to be on ships earlier than T8, but that can be her special thing, in addition to the missing HP and whatnot that players are still upset about with the current Colorado.  It'd also be a guaranteed money maker over Indianapolis and Atlanta at that tier.

​Very well, but consider this, Neither you nor I have any say over what WG does or does not add. In addition, you don't speak for everyone.

USN needs a T8 prem. I really hope if their going to add another USN prem, which they shouldn't they've gotten Saipan, Indy, and Arizona in the past 3 months, they should do the South Dakota. Or just something at tier 8.

 The game is already becoming 'World of Premiums' with Wargaming more than making up for their currency devaluation by having more pay_for_content in WoWs than a porn site. Yet another premium cloned from a free ship with a bit of cosmetic work. At least come up with something unique. I got money on 99% of you that want more premiums not having the internet bill in your own name.

You speak like you're an authority in the matter. Congratulations on being hired by WG. Where's your special tag?

I'm sure a portion of them will be added into the game as in-line ships eventually.

They are adding more ship lines with several upcoming. However, they also have to make money and they can often just use a base model, make a few adjustments and release the ship for a premium price point. I am virtually certain they have a dedicated team working on ship lines as well speak so we will get more but it takes longer.

 

Want more premiums? I don't really care if they add or don't add any. I support them adding premiums as a way to keep the game going and recognize they are going to do so because they are in business to make money. Oh, and for the record, I do pay my internet bill and it is in my name. 

 

Why does everyone get so salty over premium ships? Not like they are pay to win by any means.
