I may have missed a previous post about this but my searching was bringing up nothing, cause they have done America and Japan, and I saw Russia was the next country to be added i think if i read it right, but what are the countries that we will eventually see when it gets closer to the end product?

Based on what WG devs have said on the RU server, the next country with ships to be added is Russia/Soviet Union. Yes, many people on the NA and EU servers are upset over this decision, but WG have stated that they really want to appeal to the RU/CIS playerbase, and this is their current priority. CIS players are often influenced by national pride, and it's suggested that they're more likely to show interest in WoWS if Russian/Soviet ships are added. Since the Soviets had very little naval activity during the early 20th century, it's expected that much of the Russian tech tree will consist of prototype blueprint ships which were never built and only existed theoretically on paper.

 

There are plans to introduce the Royal Navy and the Kriegsmarine within the foreseeable future, after the Soviet Navy. There are plans to introduce French and Italian ships within the distant future.

 

From what I've heard also, US battleships and IJN carriers aren't too far away, and hopefully we can see them soon.

 

In addition, WG have stated that they are also pressured to introduce Chinese ships, just like with WoT and WoWP, in order to maintain a successful Mainland China market. What kind of ships they'll introduce, I'll have no idea (China didn't have much ships from the 1910-1950 era). I'm assuming that KongZhong (WG's distribution partner in China) will be assisting them with finding supur sekrit napkin prototype blueprint ships from China in the process.

 

I'm merely speculating right now, but if they can't find enough blueprint ships for a Chinese tree, they'll probably make a bunch of premium Chinese ships. If they do end up making a full Chinese tech tree, the branches will probably be rather bareboned, just like the current WoT Chinese tank tree. Given the timeframe of the game, we might be seeing ships from the Imperial Chinese Navy (pre-1912 Qing Dynasty dreadnaughts and armoured cruisers), and the Republic of China Navy (ships purchased from Britain and the United States from 1912-1937, Japanese trophy ships like the Tan Yang, and donated American ships like the Taiping). I really doubt we'll see People's Liberation Army Navy ships, since the PRC was established in 1949, and they didn't have much decent ships until the 1980s.

There is a F.A.Q on the member page in the portal. Not sure non-CBT can see it or not. It quote

 

Q.How many nation will be added?

 

A. Players will experience USA and Japanese ships at the outset. After that, we plan to add other nations that took part in naval clashes: Britain, Germany, Russia/USSR, France, and Italy. We will also consider adding the Austro-Hungarian fleet as a separate nation, or include it as an aggregate team of smaller shipbuilding countries (namely Brazil, Argentina, Chile).

Yeah. British battleships are always one of the strongest in the world (especially by the time of WWI and WWII). I'd certainly think it missed something if they're not included in the gameplay.

It would be good to see some Australian ships even under the  British or US line I would expect them to be only small Cruisers and Destroyers and the like, as the RAN did a fair bit of good work in both WW1 & WW2 considering we have such a small population and Navy.

 

Cheers.

 

Macca.
