    Japanese Tech Tree Suggestion

    Hi WG Dev team, Good day to you all, I would like to propose light cruiser branch and bug guns battleship branch lines for the Japan tech tree. Due to limited resources, this are the only ships I can find. Please have a look and consider this suggestion. Light Cruisers T5 Agano Armament 6 - 152 mm (6 in)/50 guns (3 × 2) 4 - 80 mm (3 in)/60 guns (2 × 2) 6 - 25 mm (0.98 in)/60 AA guns (2 × 3) 4 - 13 mm (0.53 in) AA guns (2 × 2) 8 - 610 mm torpedo tubes (2 × 4) T6 "Oyodo" type Armament: 9 - 155 mm (6.1 in)/60 guns (3 x 3) 8 - 127 mm (5 in)/40 guns (4 x 2) or 8 - 100 mm (3.9 in) AA guns (4 x 2) 18 - 25 mm (0.98 in)/60 AA guns (6 x 3) 12 - 610 mm torpedo tubes (4 x 3) Note: Oyodo only mounted 6 guns. All forward no rear. This version of "Oyodo" is armed with 9 - 155 mm (6.1 in) guns. 2 forward 1 rear. Note: Oyodo is only a temporary name for the T6 ship. Name will be filled by WG dev team. T7 "Tone" (Pre- modernization) Armament: 15 - 155 mm (6.1 in)/60 guns (5 x 3) 8 - 127 mm (5 in)/40 guns (4 x 2) or 8 - 100 mm (3.9 in) AA guns (4 x 2) 12 - 25 mm (0.98 in)/60 AA guns (6 x 2) 12 - 610 mm torpedo tubes (4 x 3) Note: Tone and Chikuma were suppose to be the 5th and 6th ship of the Mogami class respectively. Note: This version of "Tone" is her pre-alteration version. Note: Armed with 15 - 155 mm (6.1 in)/60 guns, she is the Helena version of the Japanese Navy Note: Tone is only a temporary name for the T7 ship. Name will be filled by WG dev team. Here ends the light cruiser line for the Japanese Navy. After light cruiser T7 "Tone", The light cruiser line will end and will merge together with T8 Mogami. As Mogami can be armed with both 155 mm (6.1 in) guns and 203 mm (8 in) guns. Just like the French and Italian Tech Tree I earlier suggested. (See French Tech Tree Suggestiona and Italian Tech Tree Suggestion) Big Guns Battleships T8 Tosa Armament: 10 - 410 mm (16.1 in)/45 guns (5 x 2) 20 - 140 mm (5.5 in)/50 guns (20 x 1) 4 - 80 mm (3 in)/60 AA guns (4 x 1) Note: Tosa is the battleship version of Amagi. Note: Tosa's thickest belt armor is 280 mm (11 in). Amagi's thickest belt armor is 250 mm (9.8 in) Note: Tosa's speed is 26 knots (same as Nagato). Amagi's speed is 30 knots. Note: Her sister, Kaga, is a T8 Aircraft Carrier. I would not be surprised to see Akagi, Amagi's sister, would also be a T8 carrier. T9 Ishikari "Number 13" Armament: 8 - 457 mm (18 in)/45 guns 16 - 140 mm (5.5 in)/50 guns 8 - 120 mm AA guns (8 x 1) Note: Her guns are not Yamato guns. Her guns were of 1920's. Planned guns but no example was made. Note: Second encounter of Japanese 457 mm (18 in) guns at T9. The first is Musashi which has a slightly bigger caliber/calibre guns 460 mm (16.1 in). Note: Her desing is based on the 1920's though, but that wont stop WG to visualize a theoretical modernization for her. Like the French Lyon and German P.E. Friedrich. T10 Kai "A-150 (480 mm version)" Armament: 6 - 480 mm (18.9 in)/45 guns (3 x 2) 6 - 155 mm (6.1 in)/60 guns (2 x 3) 24 - 127 mm (5 in)/40 guns (12 x 2) 162 - 25 mm (1 in) AA guns (54 x 3) ?? - 13.2 mm (0.52 in) machine guns Note: LIke the Nebraska (See US Tech Tree Suggestion), She is a Yamato but with fewer and bigger guns. This is to save time and cost for constructing new ships. Note: The original A-150 is armed with 510 mm (20.1 in) guns. Such monsterous guns would have a long reach and high damage for a T8 to T10 battle. Guns Beyond 481 mm should be considered as T11 (if there is such tier). I know some of the suggested ships may not make it as WG will put other ships that were not available in the books or internet, but I am sure they are working on to complete the French tech tree. I would like to also give a thanks to the developer and researcher of the Soviet Battleship Anton Kurchatkin (I hope I got it correctly). Really appreciate his research on Soviet warships with limited resource. He could have the resourse to further expand Japanese tech tree. I wish he would look into my other tech tree suggestions though. And here ends the suggestions details. Please let me know if I have missed any ship details in the suggestion list. Or if you feel that some ships are not in the right tier, please let me know. And please WG, please consider this request. Thank you
  2. Does anyone think that Japan could have a hybrid cruiser tech tree line?
  3. I am pretty sure that the day of IJN submarine tech tree will come pretty soon. But how about its premium ship? Does WOWS interested in an Japanese exported submarine? Now I am working on 3D model of Matchanu-class submarine which was in RTN service since before WW2 broke out till 50s. They were built in Japan by Mitsubishi and named after literary characters known for their mythical diving abilities from the Ramakien, Phra Aphai Mani, and Khun Chang Khun Phaen. They are: HTMS Matchanu HTMS Wirun HTMS Sinsamut and HTMS Phlai-chumphon All comments are welcome!!! PS. If you have any question, you can contact me via the direct message or at my page "Matte Publishing & Hobby" on FB PS.2 Submarine 3D model pic which was attached in this topic still have several details to be fix (not in final form yet) 😂
  4. Well I quite miss the day-time Nagasaki Port. Anyone with me? WG have changed the BGM back but what I see it's still the night version as I have seen from Xmas last year... Since it's spring now in Japan and why don't we get the day-time Nagasaki Port back?

    Research Trip

    I'm currently writing a book on the battleship, Yamato. Unfortunately, resources and information in Australia are very limited, and is stalling my progress. I have set up a Go Fund Me page to seek assistance in getting to Japan to conduct further research on the ship. I have World of Warships to thank to sparking a deep-seeded interest in this ship and her history, and I could really use everyone's assistance in getting my book completed. If you would like to assist, please follow the link below, or at least share it to drum up support. Thank you all in advanced. [content removed] Advertising/solicitation.

    Best Battleship Line

    The other day I asked about the best Cruiser line in the game and it got me thinking about the best battleship line. I've heard that the Montana is the worst of the 3 tier 10s.
  8. Japanese videogame magazine Famitsu has published on their website an interview with Ivan Moroz, who is the global director of the WoWS development team at Wargaming Saint Petersburg. As of the OBT, approximately 85% of core game development is complete On the Asia server, the pre-order packages were mostly purchased by Japanese players During early alpha testing, developers noticed that players got bored after 20 or 30 battles, which made them shorten the duration of each battle to 20 minutes (they were longer before). After the premium ships for USSR, Germany and UK roll out, the tech trees will be released. The developers plan on splitting cruiser classes into CL and CA, in addition to separate branches for battleships equipped with torpedoes. Submarines aren't completely ruled out of the game, though they are still in preliminary brainstorming stages. After formal release (i.e. upon completion of OBT). there are plans to introduce weather effects and night battles. Such effects include wind, waves, storm and fog. The developers are considering releases on other platforms, such as Xbox and mobile devices. They are hoping to be able to introduce promotional skins, ships and characters for the Arpeggio collaboration. Premium time and gold/doubloons will be shared across the player's unified account. They are considering the possibility of tournaments and e-sports. Destroyed ships are due to feature effects such as pieces falling off.

    alternate history

    Here is a topic i wanted to float to see what peoples thoughts are. 1) germany wins the battle of britain and goes ahead with operation sealion, before turning towards the east. thus keeping it a 1 front war. 2) when germany does attack russia japan also attacks russia. as hitler had hoped 3) japan never attacks pearl harbor. thus not giving rosevelt the excuse to enter the war. what would the outcome of these actions possibly be? would the usa have entered ww2? there was a tv show men in high castles that was a fictional history if the allies had lost the war. just wanted your ideas feel free to blast me over the total off topic posting.
  11. Recently, Wargaming removed the Rising Sun from IJN Vessels within World of Warships because of complaints that claim they were a symbol of Japanese atrocity during the Second World War. Many Japanese people responded to this issue by starting a petition to bring back the flag to the game, arguing that there is no reason to delete a flag that is not illegal for use, but rather is still used by the JMSDF. Any thoughts? I personally think WG should bring back the flag for that very reason: The Rising Sun was used by the Navy way before WWII, and the flag is still in use currently by the JMSDF and therefore should not and cannot be associated with the Nazi Swastika, which is banned in most European countries including Germany. The matter has been discussed and the decision is that the flag will not appear in-game Please do not bring politics into the forums. Thread closed. ~Centurion_NZ
