You have some Dreadnought type BBs, Protected/Light Cruisers and Torpedo Boat Destroyers in game. These are nice but when are you going to add the Armored/Heavy Cruisers and Torpedo Boats?

Heavy cruisers are already in-game, the classes are a lot more generalized in WoWS than in real life, there are several different types in the BB line (battlecruiser, etc) and so on.

Heavy cruisers are already in the game.

 

The armored cruisers prominent in the pre-dreadnought period will likely never show up in any significant numbers (we may see a premium or two, but I wouldn't bet on it) for the same reason that we're unlikely to see many pre-dreadnoughts (apart from Mikasa, already in-game): the mixed armament borne by most of the armored cruisers isn't handled particularly well by the game's mechanics. If the game had been built from day one around that time period - in particular, if the secondary batteries were directly controlled by the player - it might be a different story, but that's not the game we have.

Once more nations are added to fill out the tech trees, you'll start to see separate branches of cruiser (light and heavy) and battleship (battlecruiser and battleship) lines become prominent.  It's been mentioned countless times by the devs.  Just right now the priority is to put more content into the game first before splicing the stuff that's already there.

There have been a few idea's floated in the forum about Motor Torpedo Boats; from simplistic to complex; but like subs; don't hold your breath expecting to see them in game.
