Hello forumites, I'd like to ask your opinion witch one of the FXP ships I should take Musashi or Kronshtadt?

 

I already have Missouri, Scharnhorst, Duke of York, Kamikaze R and the four ARP Kongos, that I play somewhat regularly with Kami R in the lead BC she was my first prem ship for a long time.

 

I feel I'm a DD's main and BB player secondly and admittely have trouble with cruisers, only reason https://wows-numbers.com/player/501605143,Gleb_Reawer/ gives me a great score in cruisers is BC I used St.Louis T3 and still use T4 Svietlana as my stress relief ships after a string of losses.

 

I'm thinking about Kronshtadt BC I don't have a RU-prem ship. So, should I take it or would I only be shooting myself in the foot?

 

Thanks in advance for constructive replies :cap_like:

I got the Musashi for coal. Was thinking of picking up the Kron with my free exp, but right now I'm holding off a bit and waiting to see what happens with the ships currently in development. Alaska in particular seems interesting to me.

I find both extremely enjoyable ships.

 

Playstyle is very different:

- Musashi is a super old school BB. Punchy, reliable guns. Punishes misplays hard. 

- Kronshtadt plays like a really hefty radar cruiser. You can bounce more shots that in a cruiser, but it's no BB, not even a proper CC.

 

Musashi doesn't make a lot of sense if you happen to have Yamato with the permacamo. Kronshtadt is unique.

 

I had no immediate plans to grind IJN BB's, so I did get the Musashi, and I really love it. It's notable as a T9 that performs with perfect ease in T10 games. And sometimes you get that T9 game and it feels like Christmas come early.

It looks a Photoshop fake image, and a pretty poor one. I have an Asia account, I can promise you, Jean Bart is not in the Arsenal at this time.

Imo the most logical thing would be:

Bourgogne - Steel (because T10 and we "need" a new steelship)

JB - Coal (i assumed that the given info was right, now that it obviousy isnt... who knows)

Alaska - FreeXP (again because i thought JB would be coal)

 

I myself have 850k FreeXP, and am only missing the Musashi. I think i might get it anyway, i dont see either JB or Alaska being so much better that i would prefer them. And i really dont see Bourgogne being FreeXP.

Thank you guys for your input so far, I'm starting to lean towards Kronshtadt even tho I'm crap in cruisers as I'm going for Yamato, currently at Amagi.

 

I'll be returning to this thread after the weekend, got priority RL stuff to take care of.

Musashi could be bought by coal and it is downtiered Yamato(you can skip almost the entire IJN BB line and buy Yamato straight away with 750k free xp). In addition Musashi will never make as much money as your Missouri. 

 

Kronshtadt is free XP only. It is not as OP as Musashi but you can have fun in it. 

 

I would rather skip to Yamato and invest 5k doublons for permanent camouflage. 

 

Having said that,  my choice went for Kronstadt as it is a kind of unique ship untill Alaska arrives. I have Yamato with permanent flag, so Musashi will probably be my last choice.

Chinese blogs, anything to get hits and page views, I would never put fake content on my blog. Well, not intentionally anyway :)

It would be great for added diversity though :Smile_great:

I chose Musashi as I didn’t like the ijn battleship line at all. Great ship. 

I expect the Jean Bart and Alaska will be  free xp ships with Kronstadt being available for coal soon.
