Preliminary Japanese tech tree changes

Earlier I was watching

, and noticed this mock-up of the Japanese tech tree:

From what I gather:

  • Myogi will be renamed or replaced with Masamune at tier 4?
  • They've decided on a tier 9 BB and a tier 5 CA
  • The first Japanese aircraft carrier branch will begin with CVLs (light aircraft carriers) and develop into CVs such as Zuikaku and Taihou (I'd assume that the slower CV designs such as Kaga, Akagi and Shinano will appear in a second CV branch, or as premium warships)
  • They're already rolling out the paper warships for the CV branch (Hakuryu? Never heard of it)

 

Of course, this is always subject to further change in the future, and by no means represents the final tree design.

 

One issue that I personally have with this design is that they're already rolling out plenty of paper blueprint warships, even though there are many famous ships that aren't in the tree yet. Of course, this isn't to say that they won't come later in secondary branches, but I really hope that the game doesn't become overwhelmed with paper designs for many branches like the German and Soviet trees in WoT are.

Why is a Cruiser Izumo in the Tier 9 BB line?

(If you look at the silhouette, its is the Izumo in the link)

 

I was expecting Tosa-Class to be Tier IX.

Paper designs have always been a part of WG which is no surprise. WoT has been around for over four years, yet it's still missing some real tanks like the Super Sherman. Their priority on paper designs pushes real historical ships down the pecking order, and as a result we won't see them anytime soon.

 

I am pretty disappointed though that the Shinano is missing from the tree.

No tier 9 Japanese Battleships should either be Number 13 class or Kii Class battleship, whatever it would be, the Developers have confirmed that it would look like the Nelson by having super firing position guns. Tosa should be a tier 8 premium because it has similar appearance to Amagi. Also that tier 10 carrier displayed on the picture above should have been the Shinano, IDK what that proposed ship is. Also, where is Akagi or Kaga in the Aircraft carrier line!?

Yeah i agree, if it will come out, it might be in tier 9 or x since its very big and made from the hull of yamato

Yeah, Waffentrager Auf E-100, Jagdpanther II, T28 Prototype, and Jagdpanzer E-100. Super Shermans aren't meant to appear on the time period WoT was based upon. Slowly but surely WG is planning to replace unhistorical tanks like FV215b with the historical Chieftain.

I'll put my money on the Akagi/Kaga being Premium ships at some point in the future

So no one wondering why WG has a WWI cruiser in their tier IX BB line ?

 

Only thing I found regarding a "Battleship Izumo"

http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/Izumo-class   (LOLGUNDAM)

 

I'm sure its a mistake and the ships are going to change again before release but still funny a WWI cruiser ended up at tier IX BB. Anyone found any information about this tier IX BB (Assuming this isnt the WWI cruiser Izumo)?

 

(inb4 somone post about the new JDF "carrier" Helicopter Destroyer Izumo) :trollface:

I knew (But someone tell us first so...)

It can't be true for an Armoured Cruiser to be tier 9 better than Amagi

Is the Takao still in the game at all? There are a few screenshots of it floating around, such as this:

it would be bad (Or even Heart-Breaking for fans) if she become Premium ship

Her armaments and armor fit for Tier VIII or IX, or even tier X
