New premium ship revealed!

Tier FIVE Royal Navy heavy cruiser, HMS Exeter.

Really good stealth (being T5...), good shell velocity, Repair Party and Catapult Aircrafts... Should be T6 instead?

Looks like a Tier 5 Belfast with bigger guns, it also has high firechance 15% (18% with DE then) 

Wow British CA/CL line split got hope haha

Looks a lot closer to a Furutaka tbh.

Why Payfast? Why not Huang Meh or Aoba/Furry Taco?

I thought you hated RN ships.

Doesn't mean I cannot post news about them, yes?

What I hate about the current RN tech tree is that it is ridiculously and unnecessarily over-gimmicked. If the CA line are relatively gimmick-free I'm gonna play them to death. (More correctly, if it's a cruiser line I'm gonna play it...)

Exeter was a York class heavy cruiser. Only the two ships were built, both in the 1920s.

Furutaka was built in 1926 and had similar specs. Prior to the mid 1930s the IJN was heavily influenced by the RN and their ships of the 1920s reflected this influence.

It looks more like Huang Meh to me, but i assume its a downtier Payfast because the fire chance. 

 

Yes we will get Paperships just like Memetour yet still better than RU BB line where half of them are papership and we have a RU Nelson, regardless i will still grind because of Ruski Bias

And here I am, the highest tier Russian ship I've ever touched in this game is Sovietlana. I sold Red Octop*ssy for a meager 3,5 mil cred because reasons. If I get a Russian prem from a container and it's a freaking Kutuzov I may lose my Bias-free identity... Because that is a T8 premium! It's a credit printer by definition!

I have no problem with paper ships. Paper ships are wonderful. Ships like Hindenburg and GK show that WG do their homework well. As long as they don't turn out to be super questionable like Republique and Conqueror...

I don't mind Paperships as well, eg Dallas has good damage output. I probably will grind German BB and RU cruisers next year. Right now i m busy to farm xp for Seattle and also Charles Martel (A paper ship too)

I want Italian cruiser line (or any cruiser line for that matter) and German alt BB line with a rapid-firing twin-turretted H-41 at the end UwU

Exeter stats look OP.  Good range, reload on 203mm guns, smoke, hydro, heal at T5.

However, it may well be balanced by the hull - it's likely going to have a very similar hull to Emerald, and that means it will take a lot of damage from pretty much everything.  We'll just have to wait and see how it goes in play testing.

I suspect this setup will be nerfed before release though - or they will move it to T6.

Yeah WG needs to be very careful with this thing. On paper it looks ridiculously strong.

Ok, lets look at this seriously. It's a CA with paper thin armour. Like the Emerald, I expect it to be citadel-ed by harsh language, or even a particularly belligerent opponent using a hand gun.

Sure, you can use Spotter Plane or Smoke......but not both, so will be reliant upon it's team mates spotting for it if the player decides that safe shooting is more important. Not to mention, the problem with Smoke Firing.....

All in all, I expect this will be a 'Collector ship' and not a serious threat like the Furry Taco is.

On the positive side, it's a better British cruiser captain trainer than the Belfast due to not requiring IFHE (a skill wasted on tech-tree British cruisers since they have no HE), although it's going to take longer because it's lower tier and thus can't earn as much EXP (of any kind).
