Light vs Heavy. Should there be a tier cap?

 

Personally I'd like to see Light Cruisers like the Emden - not the WWI variety - to be capped at tier VIII whereas your Heavy Cruiser like the Deutschland would be capped at tier IX but still capable of venturing into tier X battles. For WoT reference I'm calling a Light Cruiser a 'medium' vehicle and a Heavy Cruiser..well a 'heavy' vehicle.

 

Some numbers for support:

 

Emden: 8 x 15cm and 3 x 8.8cm guns along with four 20 inch torpedo tubes.

 

Deutschland: 6 x 28cm guns ( in triple turrets ) and 8 x 15cm guns along with eight 21 inch tubes.

 

Then I look at the armour. 2 inches around the belt on Emden and 3.1 inches on the Deutschland. You can use those numbers as a general idea of how most nations armed and protected their light and heavy cruisers, I'm not going to post data about every individual cruiser of the time. Speeds and displacement I find irrelevant when trying to find the right tiering for a vessel.

 

Thoughts, criticisms welcome.

to help out the smaller ship there are not going to be 15 players per side like WoT, instead they are going to have 15 slots per side a 1x CV takes 1 slot.

1x BB/BC takes up 1 slot, but 2x cruisers take up 1 slot and 4x DD's take up 1 slot. (or numbers along that line) 

 

from pre-release wiki. you can see they have Deutshland class in at teir4 BB line. (would prefer if it was in cruiser line).
