Expect SOVIET OP

 

Nah, that's prolly gonna come with Sovetsky Soyuz and the other BBs.

Or better to say once we get a full tech tree.

 

Also, IS-3 OP!

Im personally not looking forward to it. Its only got a single turret housing 2 x 305mm's and 4 x 229mm's which would be is primaries, and 8 x 152mm's. Thats not a very impressive armament for a battleship....

 

The only thing that might MAYBE make up for it is that its supposed to have 6 x 381mm torpedo tubes, but then again, the New York had torpedo tubes in her hull before her refit, allbeit submerged.

You're thinking of the wrong Imperator Nikolai I (bless the Russians and their naming schemes)

 

The one that's in the game is the one launched in 1916, you're thinking of the original one launched in 1889

They could still add in pre dreadnoughts for the lolz and historical reasons and to compliment the Mikasa (HMS Canopus at Battle of the Falklands,Russian Battleship Borodino from the Battle of Tsushima and even the famous Battleship Potemkin for her role in the !905 revolution)

Premium vehicles seem pretty pointless in this game when regular vehicles if played well earn just as much silver at those lowbie levels. Only the T8 premiums seem worth buying but $80 is way too much for me.

Premium vehicles are primarily collectors items at this point - iconic/unique vehicles.

If thats the case, when is the Kitakami coming back??? 

 

I get why a lot of people couldnt stand it, given it was a Kuma at tier 8, and as we all know, Kumas are very explody, but i loved it, as much as it wrecked my frame rate haha

KTKM won't be back as we knew her.  Dev's have stated she was responsible for way too many TK incidents and that's why she was removed completely.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

 

Okay, make it so newbies to the game cant buy a tier 8 premium until they reach a certain rank? i dunno. Its pretty safe to assume a good portion of those TKs are from guys that pick up the game, buy a tier 8 premium, and start playing the high tiers before properly learning the game. Much akin to how there were/are SO many newbies to WoT that bought a Lowe or T34 and played their first games in that.

 

Cant blame me for assuming such hahaha but still, a player doesnt really have a good excuse to TK in a tier 8 match. Sure, accidents happen, but if it happened THAT often, i cant see seasoned players making up the majority of those TKs.

I see the imperator nikolai is in the premium shop, albeit in packages.

 

I hope we're not seeing a case of eu 2.0 in that regard.

What I have heard from RU devs talk they said that they are letting KTKM back into actions.

But only as a rank / clan war reward
