Well, since this is a [REDACTED, DATA EXPUNGED, CLASSIFIED] future patches, which lines do you expect?

UK? Italians? Americans, Japanese or Germans?

Well Sub_Octavian hinted in one of the Q&As that we can expect something for the US tree, so either a BB or a DD line split.

Otherwise probably an Italian DD or BB line.

I would like to see an IJN CL/CA split though.

Eventhough Sub_O already dropped the ball, I would love to see KM and RN battlecruiser line.

As for IJN CL, I'm curious what T9 and T10 will be like? :fish_book:

AFAIK despite CLs (Probably After Tier 6, since they go CAs at T7), the base design uses Tone's CA hull so basically a Heavy Anti Air Cruiser

Those look like 100 mm guns. :fish_book:

Not quite a fan of wing turret, but........ conflicting feelings.

This is a premium, not a tech tree. 

WG seem to be adamant about "caliber progression" or whatever. They purged Kirov because it's 180 mm instead of 152, and the replacement has 152 mm guns. Next they will need to purge KGV :Smile_trollface:

Tech tree IJN CLs would be only 155 or 152.

Well he didn't actually say it out loud. But he did drop some clues.

He said 🍕 / 🍝 and 🍔.

 

He said it in during AMA.

I can see a gimmick laden Italian BB line with SAP shells in the secondaries approaching before any of the others.

I can also see an IJN CV split coming before a CA/CL split. Wonder f they'll bring back Kitakami for the fun of it.

Oh I remember that one.

I am curious too. In fact I am curious about how WG will implement the entire line if they decide to do one. 

Because the IJN never really pursued the development of CLs beyond the Agano class, and that is at Tier 5.

IJN 203 mm turrets (Takao-class) can actually elevate up to 70 degree upward.

There is a slim chance that the IJN would think of 155 mm that can elevate that high up. And give them less than 10s reload because holy ships.

 

Of course, I can't entirely rule out the possibility that the split will be CA - CL, but something like artillery - torpedo. And almost no ship in the current IJN line can torpedo strike very well, not even Zao. Yoshino, on the other hand...:Smile_trollface:

IJN torpedo cruisers can have 15 km Yuudachi torps and 20 km standard/DW torps.

I too would like the IJN CL line will be torpedo-focused. Like you said, a torpedo focused cruiser is something we don't have yet.

Personally, a fictional further development of the Nagara/Sendai and the Agano class would be interesting to see.

I think a torpedo cruiser line suits the IJN philosophy well because they loved their long, hard, huge Long Lances 2x

Still in the "miistry of balans" though.

So future premium ship = yes.

 

Assuming the "ministry of balans" really got good at "balansing" things. :Smile_sceptic:
