USS Wisconsin is coming!


iDuckman

Recommended Posts

As announced in the 13.1 Release Notes, Wisconsin - the third Iowa-class battleship in the game - will be distributed to testers at Tier X. 

AFAIK, the main difference with Big Whiskey is that she has extensive flag accommodations.  Obviously we won't be able to talk about the game version until she's released, but we can discuss what makes her historically unique.

I mean, the super testers can't but we most certainly can theorycraft and analyze her all we want. Unless the rules on Devstrike changed so that we can't discuss content in testing anymore.

Really hope she's a coal ship. It'd be lovely if she were a coal ship.

Now we're just missing New Jersey (the weeb skin doesn't count). Shame, that. Hope that, when she finally arrives, she's in her "Black Dragon" guise.

4th of July release almost guaranteed and she will be $200 dollar bundle or purchasable at the end of an event chain(where she will be even more money). Then maybe coal six months down the line.

Coal ship? are you new with WG?

Its gonna be random bundles 274 bundles, every bundle 3k doublons.

Yeah that sounds more realistic.

But Iowa and Missouri are both Tier IX... so Wisconsin will be Tier X ?

What will make her jump the tier?

Probably something gimmicky based like Air attack sqadrons, radar, homing torps or funny button

The initial stats are here:  https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/506

 

Basically, she gets Combat Instructions and Defensive Fire consumable.

Wisconsin will probably be a July 4 release in some form, as I believe she is the only US ship in development at the moment. The centerpiece of the July 4 event is also usually a historical ship (Enterprise, Massachusetts, California, San Diego, and West Virginia have all been July 4 releases), another point in her favor.

A dockyard release would be… questionable. I’d like to think the minds at WG realize that rolling out such a famous and anticipated ship like Wisconsin as a limited release would not go over well, especially after what happened with MO. She will probably be a FOMO limited time release that will later return in the Armory. Given that RI was released in the same way earlier this year, my bets would be on RI returning for coal and WI for steel.

If you were going to design her for WOWS, how do you think you might reflect this in gameplay?

(Open question for all, just in case Duckman knows things about this that he's not allowed to talk about.)

I'm looking forward to all the Iowa Class Battleships being in the game, someday.

No idea.  I haven't looked at her yet.  And even if I knew I couldn't tell you.  Wait for an announcement.  Even the tier might change.

Without inside knowledge, I can't think of a way unless they introduce a new mechanic.

If I were in charge, if I were to split the Iowa class ships into tiers, I'd enhance the little things that would make them "more effective..."   Radar (longer, further) - Secondary Range, then Accuracy - Speed is a given - built in gun stabilization - and, an AA increase that is "user aimable" (as we had long before...)

…and 2.0 sigma + battlecruiser dispersion.

Also new, refined model (based on that of Illinois), modified citadel module (completely submerged also like that of Illinois) and improved ballistics (similiar to German and British 16.5-incher guns).

Basically a new ship sharing not that much (even the model is different) with her historical sisters.

If the release ends up beeing in the latest WG T10 fashion of endless random bundles costing upwards of 300€ for the buyout and the ship usually ending up in the last 10 or so percent of the chain well I ll pass unless its the first one
