Siegfried is finalized to be Coal, Hayate is FXP. at the cost of half a million.

No source, no confirmation whatsoever. Don't believe that...

*tinfoil hat is on*

Maybe they're making a new Sieg with those 305 turrets from Odin, which is more appropriate for her type (super cruiser).

I hope. Don't believe me, I have tinfoil hat on.

 

First Commonwealth FXP maybe a T7, like Nelson, if she's not a DD. Unless you want a paper/hypothetical design, which is totally fine by WG.

Missouri and Musashi were 750k free xp, but those days are long gone.

WG said that those ships were too cheap and that's why all free xp ships at T9 are 1 Mill free xp now. Any new free xp ships at T9 will start at 1 mill free xp :Smile_coin:

German Cruiser............. i think will be trash. Played against it many times and was pretty shocking. Big cruiser, not enough guns, although accurate and strong, your focus fire by every BB and CA in range the moment your exposed. Unless they buff it dramatically i cant see dropping resources into another below par German ship like the rest of them. Germans have nothing at the moment. Hopefully im wrong and WG makes it a strong ship maybe close to the Stalingrad or Kremlin........ somewhere in the middle would be nice.

Hayate idk, she could be 950k FXP unless

 

As for Siegfried, she's coal, not to mention her price gonna be the same as Georgia.

Make a superior German ship? Hahaha. Vladimir Putin has better chances of becoming the next American President than a superior German ship happening.

6 months old review, but it's a tier 7 Gneisenau.... at tier 9.

3x2 main guns...22 seconds reload. That's very long for a cruiser, and very short for a BB.

Notser loves it.

The big question is, can an average or below average player make the same credits in it as a Musashi or JB, Missouri etc??.

I can answer part of that question, no way it will print credits like Missouri.  No other ship in the game prints credits like Missouri and that is the reason the only way to get it is through a santa crate.

I doubt it. Musashi has the "ultra big" guns while JB has reload booster to crank up their damage counter. And Missouri has the best credit modifier. However Siegfried's closest counterpart is Georgia, so it might depend on how good the player is with Georgia.

The problem with the next FXP ship well if its not as good as thr previous one they will be seen as yoo expensive and they are looking so already but if its as good its likely to ruin the game balance which is pretty ruined already at high tiers by all the so call balanced premiums

Hayate no not even from this DD main the yard stick here is all the old and current FXP / Steel /Coal ships now if they are so much potential and kind of OP then the next one even a DD must be able to be the same; spec so to even worth the asking price ... Seriously if WG want us to part with our FXP they should offer more ships not needing to be OP but need to give worthy alternate or specialized gameplay and offer them in more reasonable price. Mushashi ; Alaska was welcomed because they offer that and might be even a bit extra ... the other current one and might be the future one well they do not seems so ( exlude Nelson of course and its mot high tier anyway )

Siegfried is apparently frozen atm, she tested a bit OP and they have yet to rebalance it.  I would suggest they haven't come up with a good way to nerf it, so it's in a development hole for the foreseeable future.  Don't expect to see it anytime soon.

The only guaranteed upcoming free XP boat atm is Hayate, T10 IJN DD, a bit underpowered unfortunately, no cost assigned as yet but my personal estimate is 1.5m FXP.

I really need to tell WG to stop adding more super cruisers and add more heavy cruisers for FXP and Coal/Steel. You know, the kind of cruisers whose main guns are 203 mm. Salem is the only one of her kind with these criteria.

The resource section of the Arsenal is filled with HE spammers, biggun boats and loliboats. Heavy cruisers exist too, WG. And even more real than those 305/310 gunships.

Oregon City? Clone Mogami (203)/Ibuki? Clone Saint-Louis? Buffalo w/ torps, like back in 2016? Clone Roon but AB-X?

There is practically no real CL with 150/252/155 mm guns either ; Mainz suppose to had the 155 guns but the saying is that they would put CL armor on a CA sized ship that ssil like a CA; not going to bode well with anyone.

And their DD offering simply signal how they fail in re spec and balance a whole class of ships let alone one with so diverse play nd play style
