The way I see it, it might end up either unbalanced, or balanced but about as fun as a stock Izumo.

Aaalright, it might turn out well, but it wouldn't be my first option. I just have some kind of natural aversion towards doing this to sister ships.

Even I'm not weeb enough to want to play a 1.8 sigma Yamato with no AA and garbage secondaries, even if she does finally have a proper paint scheme.

Musashi could have been the only legendary and real, premium ship at tier 10. However it is not Russian => nerf down one tier, to make place to mighty Stalingrad.

Got Yamato and Missouri, so no thanks. 

I rather shoot accurate guns at T8-10 than inaccurate guns at T7-10.

Yeah I agree, accurate guns are the single most important trait for an enjoyable BB. Watching shells derp then having to wait 30s to roll the dice is just tedious when you know it's RNG and not your own aiming. 

 

Splashes all around a target anyone?

The reason why there is so much mystery around the yamato class is due to the fact that following the end of the war the Japanese naval staff destroyed nearly all the documents. 
indeed many of the more comprehensive documents on the Yamato class were actually recovered from the German high command in Berlin. 

 

How on earth did that come about?! Wouldn't really have benefited anyone late war, where did you find that info from?

Yeah, Musashi should have been T10. Especially as WG shows with Stalingrad that T10 prems are possible.

I like that they placed it at tier 9, tbh thats where she should be to create the most variety. However she looks way too weak, especially its AA.

 

Who not use the late war refit which gave Musashi about 277 dps @ 3.1km... I would rather have a usable AA rather than those useless 155mm secondaries.

The 35 second reload as well as .3 less sigma compared to Yamato is kinda too much. the 460mm guns wont do anything to tier 7 ships that 406mm guns cant do. The loss of 6 127mm guns puts Musashis secondaries waaaay below all other tier 9s save for Lion. 

 

I love this ship, but it needs more love if I'm gonna have to spend money on it.

Musashi

Tier: X

Research price: 1,500,000

Restriction: own a tier X battleship

 

That's how it should've been done, in my opinion. 

BUT: Third free experience battleship, while no other class is available. Poor choice! 

If WG decide to bring her as a free experience ship it would be a poor choice, since there are already two battleships available.

From my understanding in a book i read some years ago about German Naval programs all the way from 1815 to 1945, the German Naval Attache (if i remember right he was an admiral and commanded one of the pocket battleships earlier in his career) in Tokyo was permitted to tour one of the Yamato Class while it was in dry dock and undergoing maintenance in 1942. It took Hitler making a personal appeal to the Japanese Govt, one of the few foreigners allowed near the ship. 
From there he created a detailed document and sent it to Berlin and these were preserved.

Another BB what a great idea........:Smile_facepalm:

Must admit I agree.. Will still get her. But why not a free XP DD/CA/CL we have 2 BBs already. Already back to 570K Free XP after Nelson and Missouri

Still 72 seconds of turret traverse and 35 seconds of reload... Don't get me wrong, I get that that's the minimum to balance those guns with also the 1.8 sigma at tier 9, but... my god, we'll grow a beard between shots if we need to change the ship direction. Also I don't know where's the AA which as pointed out before there's not that much CV at those tiers to worry that much about it.

 

Except I do. I always will. A ship with no AA past tier 7 or even 6 will never be safe, not even a m*********ing Yamato class. Yamato's AA is already lacking a bit and look at that deck of Musashi.

 

"A ship is all about the cannons" BB if I ever saw one.

I always bow camp with Yamato and use mostly 6 guns so I can live with turret traverse.

With reload module, I can get 31s reload, it is not too bad.

1.8 sigma with low dispersion still is very deadly

Don't forget AR...My guess is they will nerf it's HP but make the reload on par with the yama.

Was the Musashi weaker than Yamato in WW2, justifying the tier 9?

I thought they were sister ship with similar armaments?

 

Sister ships yes with almost identical design. However Musashi was the second one to get finished and it got special upgrades vs. Yamato to be capable of operating as a Fleet Admiral ship. Its interior design accommodated the necessary rooms, spaces and communication that a fleet admiral requires - this is because once Musashi joined the operating fleet the Admirals used that this as Fleet Admiral base when in port. (most of the time during WW2)

This has no impact on the game unfortunately - however I could think of a special skill for this ship that may represent this "Fleet Admiral role" for example: any friendly ships in 10km range from Musashi gets 10% more concealment or 10% more AA power or something similar.

A possible gimmick for Musashi would be DefAA, to compensate her basic AA power.

Looks like she has so little AA that even Defensive Fire would be fairly futile lol

 

I guess it's good that WG aren't making blatantly better than Tech Tree ships as Prems although it's a bit late to be doing that and it seems to be IJN only that get this treatment.

 

T9 is a very difficult place for ships. As they're essentially T10 with the occasional T7 stomp. 9/10 games will be vs T10 anyway. Very few T9 ships are worth keeping over T10, the Fletcher is the only ship I can name.

 

For me Missouri is excellent and can survive in T10 games all day long (radar, good concealment, speed and accurate guns) but a half baked Yam with inferior soft stats and no AA? No thanks...

DefAA power multiplier can be set in a click.

Like Hood's silly rockets I guess...

 

Meh I don't enjoy playing Yam or any T10 BB that much anyway. They are all too hulking and slow for my liking. Just big fat floating XP barges for the real ships :Smile_child:

So Ijn has most silver sisters as a one tier lower prem versions, Yamashiro will be t5 then, concerning Musashi, only role i see her is a colectors thing, and a ingame high tier Arkansas (cv priority targer, all day long) but i'll wait till i get her (collection thing) to see how she behaves. :Smile_Default:
