Will there be a discount on Researchable Tech-tree ships in credits?

Someone has put this question in the Chinese-speaking subforum recently.

1.So when will IZUMO get her conning tower?
Did no one of WG design team notice izumo doesnt have conning tower?
How can you guys at WG fix so many ships model and forget this one?

2.Why do FDG and Kurfurst spotter floatplane is place between 3rd and 4th turret?
Why not place it in the middle between the two smokestacks (where its supposed to be) like in bismarck where the crane actually exist in FDG and Kurfurst? 
The crane is in the middle of the ship but the plane is in the back of the ship, it doesnt make sense and no one in the design team notice this?

3. When are you guys gonna buff german BB or balance lower tier ship?
Honestly, playing Gneisenau and FDG in this new meta is just a suffering. these 2 ships are inconsistent and too situational.
About lower tier ship, I watch flambass video on youtube comparing Kawachi and South Carolina, its so unfair and feels stupid.

WG release an update in a Tuesday instead of a Thursday or Friday. Has the world gone mad?

Ohmygosh, I wonder what is that very tall, phallic-looking structure in the middle of the ship is.

Spoiler

It's the conning tower. What the eff could it be?

The conning tower is a heavily armoured cylinder placed inside or next to a warship's bridge structure that can protect the commanders aboard the ship from enemy fire when in battle. This argument refers to the fact that a heavily-armoured conning tower structure is missing on Izumo's tower-like bridge in-game.

Also the placement of light AA guns on Izumo's upgraded hull is also rather questionable. Someone has already posted in the Japanese-speaking subforum about the two issues and posted a more reasonable plastic model of "Izumo" in his post in August.

What is the point of releasing special camouflage for Ark Royal if you do not release the ship itself? Or did I miss something?

It doesn't appear on the armor layout doesn't mean it isn't there on the 3D model. I mean... are you really gonna shoot at the conning tower of a ship in battle?

The ship has a phallus for the superstructure. This much I care about...

Don't you mean Citadel?

 

This is the armoured citadel from the Missouri.

The correct name of such a structure is conning tower AFAIK.

Citadel should be the most heavily protected centre section of the hull housing the ship's vital machinery section and magazines, as approximately represented in-game. The famous design doctrine of "all or nothing" refers to the practice of reinforce the protection of the armored citadel to the most extent possible (and the citadel section should have enough reservation to keep the ship afloat) while discarding distributed protection scheme like upper armoured belt or very thick waterline armor belt.

Bugs - shooting HE from smolensk to zao and registered 0 hits of any kind. Visually, most he looked like it went through the ship.

Same game; Smolensk 287 main hits, 1 fire. Something isn't right. If this is a nerf, I'd like my coal back =)

Several maps and Ports have been updated to utilize the reworked lighting model. In Update 0.8.8, we've enhanced the following maps: Ocean

How can we enjoy it when Ocean comes around less often than Halley's Comet?!  😛

I had only just ground out the Conqueror's 18inch guns not long ago and I had only played a few games with them. This is my first tier ten ship and something I had been looking forward to for a long time.

And then you take them away from me >_<

But don't worry, you plan to sell them back to me in the form of premium ship.........

I am not impressed and it was a pretty nasty shock to hop into a game and find the guns missing
