Rename Wasa ship

Recommended Posts

1. It's a Wasa-class ship, the ship itself is not called Wasa

2. People mistake it with the old Wasa all the time and ask silly questions and make irrelevant jokes about the ship

On the side note... what would you guys think about renaming Snow to Ontario, Frigate to Cherubim, Navy Brig to Fair American (isn't is a little bit silly name for the ship?)

Technically, it´s the Kronprins Gustaf Adolf-class, the ten ships of this class, launched between 1782 and 1785, were 4' longer than the Wasa and were rated as 64-gun ships (Wasa 60)

Interesting, hmm

Additional question, what's the meaning of Kronprins and is that part of the full name? Some players insisted that it's the port where the ship was built and not really part of the name (or maybe both?)

Kronprins is a title, like crown prince or dauphin (the heir apparent). The port/dockyard was called Karlskrona.

These ten Improved Wasa-class or Kronprins Gustaf Adolf-class ships were named based on the following sentence;

"Prins Gustaf Adolf styr Fäderneslandet med Ömhet och RättvisaDygd och Ära, välj Försiktighet, Dristighet, Manlighet och Tapperhet till rådgivare"

Each day in nation and global chat people connect this ship to the old Wasa that got sank on a maiden voyage... It gets really annoying.

It will die down, the ship is new.
