Update 0.10.6 added a new nation "Dutch FlagNetherlands" together with its first branch of early access ships, "Cruisers". In Update 0.10.7, the Netherlands tech tree will feature dutchdd icon IX Groningen, a complete clone of Friesland. She will be available for 1.000,000 free xp Free XP, as well as in the Armory for 19,300 icon Doubloons.{alertInfo}

Extra Details
Initially, it was planned to transfer Friesland to the Dutch tech tree, as historically she was in service with the Koninklijke Marine (Royal Netherlands Navy). However, having analysed the feedback and possible options of replacing and transferring the commander assigned to Friesland, we decided to leave her as a European ship. Thus, players who own Friesland will be able to enter battles with familiar commanders that were trained particularly for Friesland, and if they want, they will have an opportunity to purchase the new dutchdd icon IX Groningen.{alertSuccess}

Real name Joe, The Joby part is from my surname. I was accepted as a CC for WoWs in March 2019, I enjoy giving stuff away, so it's all worthwhile. I have been playing WoWs since Sept 2015, mostly in the evenings with my kid brother, and TBH, we have some great times. I try to help others to learn the game from start, also try to give advice on recruiting new players so they can get some good rewards, for the recruiter and the new player. I hope you enjoy my blog, if so, then I am a happy man.

Thank you for your comment, it will be added asap, as long as you are not showing as anonymous/unknown.
