It's been several months since I last logged in to play a game of WoWS, or even WoT.  Before I consider spending time on waiting for patches to download, I would like to ask if the Royal Navy has finally been released for play yet?

A full British Naval tree, not yet. 

But the Warspite and the new Campbeltown are in game so there are British ships sailing the sea.

Thanks for ensuring the ever helpful elitist responses that are so prevalent on the World of Tanks forums are continued over here.  The effort is appreciated.

2 ship package recently?

That's interesting.  So it is still the Warspite + one other ship.  I thought the RN was supposed to be released shortly after launch.  This game has been out for how long now?

It is looking like one royal navy line will be released later this year.

You didn't hear? When the UK left the EU they took the tech tree designs with them.

That was never stated by WG. British cruisers are due by the end of this year.

Well, I think I may keep this game on the shelf for the foreseeable future, then.  I might have been inclined to start playing again, but I would have thought that the British would have been released by now.

WG is working on British Cruisers, Battleships and Destroyers right now. Cruisers are expected "at the end of Q3".

I still say the British should have been one of the first nations in the game, but no we get the Russians, Polish and Pan Am...Go figure.   Maybe that's why the UK left the EU?   :hiding:

The only way in which the Royal Navy was released is from the EU :P

 

+1 subtle but golden :P

German BB's this summer i think ?

 

People are thinking about mid August for the German battleships, with a RN line later this year (I'm guessing maybe either October or November) Not sure what ship type it'll be, but it'd be nice if it was battleships. :P

Don't be silly. 

Glorious Russian Paper Bullsh!t comes before real ships that have a global appeal and massive potential interest generation.

Yes German BBs in August I believe and British cruisers in the fall sometime.

If you are only going to play this game if you can play British ships why play at all? If the game is not enjoyable to you playing other ships till the British ships are in i really do not see the point.

British Cruisers are modeled and being implemented into the game for eventual testing.

 

British Battleships are planned for December, but may be delayed as late as February 2017.

 

British Destroyers are modeled to an extent (spotted in a preview video), but status unknown.

Maybe the OP just has no interest in the current navies, which is perfectly understandable. Plenty of people have nations, and lines they have little to no interest in grinding.

It probably would have gone faster if the Archives would be more forthcoming. It really opens your eyes when the navy staff at the Archives throws a fit when the BBC wants to show off the blueprints for the Dreadnought. Yes I mean that dreadnought. And the archives threw up and absolute fit.

Good grief.

 

They did the Russians because the Russian server is their largest customer base.  What part of that don't people understand?  They're catering to their largest customer base!!!!

 

As for the Polish and Pan Asian ships, whoop-de-doo.  3 whole ships, 2 of which are mostly cut and paste jobs (the Anshan and Lo Yang DD's).

 

As for them being one of the first, they might have come sooner if the RN archives had been more helpful and forthcoming.  Of course, we've seen this before in WoT where the Russians are very forthcoming with the necessary data, but the Brits (and French as well, perhaps) are not.
