WoWS: Sergey Vorobyev: Chinese tech tree in early development

From Redditor goodman528:

I came across a post on the Chinese forum about the possibility of making a Chinese tech tree. It turns out there is some real truth to it! I don’t know who Sergey Vorobyev is, but I’m guessing he is a rep from WG, so the source below appears to be from an interview between a Chinese gaming site and WG.


Sergey Vorobyev:我们现在其实从上线开始,就一直在准备中国的科技树,但现在还在一个比较早期阶段,主要一方面收集图纸,另外一方面军事专家在研究怎么 搭配这条线上的各个船,包括数值设计上进行一些讨论。因为现在还在一个开发初期,中国科技树无法在今年面世,但是刚才他也讲到,我们可能会抽出一部分内容 在科技树上有所体现。

Rough Translation:

17173: Any plans for Chinese ships in WoWs? Sergey Vorobyev:we have actually been preparing a Chinese tech tree since release, but now it is still in early stages of development, mainly the collection of blueprints, and military experts planning how to position each ship on the tech tree, including discussions of balancing the ship stats. Because now it is still in early development, Chinese tech tree will not be released this year, but before he (程宇, possibly another WG rep) also mentioned, we might extract a portion of content (from other trees?) to appear on this tree.


As for what this Chinese tech tree might look like, the discussion on the Chinese forum is split between “What kind of money grabbing scheme is this?! The entire line will be fictional.” and “Of course we can have a Chinese tier X carrier in game, 96k HP + 66x J15 + 12 cruise missiles.”

        1. Italians did not have good tanks during WW2 and there had very few post war tanks to brag about, Navy wise, was one of the 4 strongest in the world and in the game it can easily fill a CA and BB tree to T8 and a DD tree to T10 with real ships that actually fought during the war. Wasting so much time and effort to put a boring and stupid Chinese tree just to make the SEA server happy is just Lame and insulting.

          1. At least the Italians did have tanks they designed and used during WW2, unlike the Chinese. My point is don’t expect the Italians to come before China, or any other navy for that matter.

          2. You are probably offending most of the SEA server players, most Chinese players play on the CN server ran by KZ, while not a lot of people migrated to SEA. If you want to be completely clear, it’s pleasing the CN server rather.

  1. Boooo !

    I even saw their projected tech tree floating around, and it’s a fucking mess of a line, with interwoven cruisers and destroyers.

    The worse fucking part?
    That (not sure if official) line was made up of RN ships like the Tribal class, and the long awaited Akisuki class IJN destroyer, which would be an awesome pew pew gunboat. Of course flying under Chinese colors.

    So uncool WG !

  2. Ning-Hai Class and the few British Ships they received wouldn’t fill a whole tree. Kinda mixed tree could work. Two DDs –> two CL –> one CA –> two BBs and the rest would be fictional off course.

    I’m kinda annoyed that they used their resources to work on a fucking tree of rice instead of putting work into RN, Italy or France.

    1. Not really like KZ has any involvement around other tech trees though, even though it’s coming from a WG official, they probably have no way of accessing the “documents” KZ have, so it’s purely down to KZ to formulate the line and send it back to WG.


      1. STRONK camo confirmed.

        Or take a grenade underneath a girl’s clothes and throw it :p

        And ofc there must be Italian cannons. :pp


  3. A full complete destroyer tree is quite possible, only if they would ever put down their massive pride and accept the fact that PLAN has no ships whatsoever and would have to fuse with ROCN for a tree mixed with IJN, USN and RN destroyers (plus some old German and Austro-Hungarian ships to fill up the lower tiers)


  4. A Chinese tree is possible and like Urakaze said it would have to be a mix of RCN-ROCN-PLA ships that come from all over the world (ex RN, ex IJN, or built by the Austrian empire or ex USN).
    Of course it would also piss me off that the Chinese tree comes out before the RN or RM trees.

    Also some of those ships below were projects started/built for the Republic of China navy and were either cancelled or used by the original country for it own navy.

    Fu Po destroyers
    Ching Po/Ascaro-soldato class)
    SMS Warasdiner/Lung tuan
    Ming Chuen gunboat
    Shen Yang (ex Namikaze)
    Tai Yuan DE
    Hengyang (ex Mutsu class DE)
    Hsin Yang (ex Tachibana class DE)
    Lin Fu (ex RN Hunt class DE)
    Tai Ho (ex USN Cannon class DE)
    ROCS Tan Yang (ex Yukikaze)
    Fen Yang destroyer (ex Yoizuki)

    Monfalcone CL project
    Chao Ho cruiser
    Ning Hai-class cruiser
    Chung King CL

    1. After searching a bit on the net, I found that the Imperial Chinese Navy was looking into buying ship(s) of a “improved Lion-class” back in 1910-11 for 2,397,000 pounds, that never came true though. Maybe it could serve as a tier 4 premium BB since it would most likely be something in the lines of a stock Kongo (No actual blueprint though, since it was likely to be cancelled before it even entered design phase)
      Just another interesting bit I found on the Chinese forums.
