I'm not against the addition of paper ships in the game. But I think WG has gone a little overboard (pun intended) with them.

 

When will San Diego be added into the game, WeeGee?

Spoiler

 

[Weeb mode deacttivated}

I mean instead of adding paper ships whose blueprints are not clearly verified, how could WG forget to add the 2nd most decorated ship in the US Navy? WG could have added her during the peak days of CV rework instead of that one Russian DD at T9.

 

Her main characteristic could have been the strongest AA in her own tier due to her historical records. I'd suggest her to be at T8 because she was supposed to be better than Atlanta. And probably sell her as a coal ship, which could serve as the first T8 coal ship in the game.

Why should she be at T8? Well, the T7 already hosts her two sisters. And selling a better (and more affordable) Atlanta at the same tier could draw some ire from some Atlanta owners. WG also could have already managed to balance her "potentially OP" stats with the long term MM issue (WG did not fix the whole issue on the last update).

All paper ships should be subjected to +1000% flammability. 

Or the same flammability as German ships. Those ships get roasted even faster now....

I would be more inclined to say "WG have added too many USN ships" recently.

Stick a Stars and Stripes on a ship and NA will eat them up, and from a business perspective who could blame WG for making the most of it. I'm sure over time there will be USN ships introduced named after every State, City, President etc plus whatever paper ships can be put out.

Not really.

I will say this: I don't care if a ship is paper or fantasy, if it's balanced I accept it. I'm a simple man, the more ships in the game the better. But those ships better have clear and approachable ways to get them aka NOT the Rubbish Burnheap.

This is simply a sudden surge of questionable (cash-grabbing) decisions rather than too many high tier "freemium" ships.

About historical ships, yeah, sometimes I do wonder if WG are picking ships very... rightly. There are so many ships that have significant service records and where the heck are they? USS Johnston, SMS Seydlitz, HMS Repulse, etc.

I think the newest USN ships added this year are not as much as filling a full line. Alaska, Benham, Hill, Wichita, AL Montpelier, Georgia,  Somers, and Ohio; 8 ships in total. But in the same period, WG added a full Russian BB line (only Gangut & Izmail made it past the drawing board), some Russian freemiums, and some others I can't recall now.

You said it better than I did. And if WG has no problem with adding some ships with little to no service records, why do they not add HMS Prince of Wales? Her records were short, but more wholesome than these paper ships. She's also the only Battle of Denmark Strait participant that does not exist in the game.

Yes and no.

I’m cool with WG filling out tech trees with paper ships where no other ships are available. And they’re going to have to do it to fill in certain ship lines (I’m less cool with WG prioritising largely paper navies over navies that existed).

Its where we start getting a bunch of high tier premium paper ships that I have a problem with. Especially when the resources could otherwise be spent on real life ships. Yes, I know there were fewer real life ships, especially CA, CL and BB, that could be T9 plus, but I think there’s too many premium T9 &10s anyway.

And I agree with @Kamanah, they are putting out too many USN AND Russian high tier ships.

I get the feeling that because they removed Kronstadt, Missouri and Musashi, they think that those ships don’t count towards the total.

I have an idea!

How about a imaginary paper version, of a imaginary paper ship?
