Just heard that there will be a special 6th Myoko for Lunar New Year.
Is the Myoko class that famous ? Hell , i have 5 Myokos already in the shipyard and this one will be the 6th.

WG why , just why ?

If it doesnt have anything special about it then it just another copy paste paint product and nothing new. I mean i am grateful for it but it is too bland and not very impressing.

Btw , does anyone know the technical detail behind the "C" or third turret of Myoko face backward ? I mean why not let it face forward for more use and the same can be said to the turret grouping of the Izumo

there was a tale :

 

there used to be only 1..... myoko...

the 1 in the tech tree

then wargaming got a collaboration contract with "Arpegio Blue Steel" anime/manga.

the "Arpegio Blue Steel" is featuring the 4 myoko sisters and 4 kongo sisters in colorfull tribal marking.

and ofcourse, doing the collaboration mean that WG has to provide Arpegio like vessel in the game.

this doesnt take to much resource, coz all WG need to do is just create new texture skin for them. the model is already available in game afterall.

and then the 4 extra ARP kongos and 4 extra ARP myokos was born. and was obtainable through mission back in 2016.

and if u dont know, there is chinese version of WoWs that published by chinese game publisher. (iirc china doesnt let foreign game dev to publish by their own game, they must make contract to let local publisher to publish their game in china)

and the chinese publisher apparently want their own version of ARP ship, then another 2 extra myokos with dragon drawing in their hull was born. (southern dragon[yellow] and eastern dragon[blue])

so yeah. there are 7 myokos available in the game client as right now.



now back to reality

Btw , does anyone know the technical detail behind the "C" or third turret of Myoko face backward ? I mean why not let it face forward for more use and the same can be said to the turret grouping of the Izumo

 because its historically facing backward.

Wikipedia

Google Images

 

as for izumo

iirc it was one of yamato design study.

and one of the variation was to incorporate nelson like turret layout (all 3 forward turets)

there are 2 variation that has 3 forward turrets.

1. all facing forward.

2. turret 3 facing backward.

and apparently WG choose to make the 1 with 1 turret facing backward. coz it similiar with some IJN cruiser turret layout. (myokos and takaos), and to make her visual unique and different when compared with nelson.

To make magazines and engines more compact and then shortening the armor required to protect those section. it also  shortening the belt over the magazines

Low High Low arrangement were kinda popular weight saving turret arrangement in Treaty Era Ships.

 

Aside from myoko, takao, there also Nelson class and Brocklyn class which have similiar arrangement.

on Nelson class, the layout result in the elimination two transverse armor bulkheads, saving tons of weight

those were ships that designed with limited displacement that allowed by treaty

 

so they try to min-maxing their builds

Well. Only a weirdo who will keep Normal Myoko in her port after she unlock Mogami

 

Guess i am a weirdo then since i'm still keeping Normal Myoko along with 4 ARP Myokos since my Normal Myoko is a dedicate AA platform. She's a good ship so why shouldn't i keep her?

​And you can use different camos  with the vanilla Myoko. 

Having a bunch of Myokos is handy for modded EXP missions by cycling through them for the 1st win bonus each day.

I reckon War Gaming Asia could have done a better job for lunar new year than to make a 6th or 7th Myoko reskin. Come on War Gaming. We know that you are better than that. I wouldn't mind if this is a 2nd or 3rd Myoko reskin. But the fact that this is the 7th one is just downright annoying. Perhaps rewarding the players who complete the mission with a completely new Taiwanese ship would be a better choice. At this rate we probably have around 15 Myokos by the ene of the year

5 kongos (4 arp and 1 haifuri (maybe?))

The dragon boats were originally created for the Mainland China server as a "ARP for China". So we had ARP, but the Mainland China server wasn't allowed to add these contents into the game, copyright issues IIRC.(the Mainland China server wasn't run directly by Wargaming but by "Kongzhong net" so they don't get a collaboration with ARP)
