As per 0.6.15 patchnotes found on NA.

Now's your chance to pick up the US tier IX USS Missouri for in-game Free XP -- she's departing on release of Update 0.7.2 as we roll out a new tier IX battleship that can be acquired with Free XP. We decided two ships occupying the same niche at the time is one too many. Get grinding, you can still get Missouri for about two more months.

Musashi was laid down on 29th March 1938, so next march is 80 years.

if she is released with Patch 7.3 at the end of March she is 80 years old, so that's pretty cool.

The Selfish part of me says Cool.. Got Missouri Got the Nelson never converted Ship XP to Free XP am sitting on almost 1.3 Million Free XP. Another ship to spend it on COOOOL

 

More reasonable Part of me says Why not leave her there and give a second Tier IX as well. Seem wrong to remove  her

I have nearly 85k to go. crap. Not Funny. 


Scenario's with Papa Papa flags & last years new year camo, that's +500% to free XP so a five star would net you around 5-6K Free XP per game.

Maybe to entice people to spend money converting FXP to get her?

Hahahaa. More like lets create arficial demand and rarity so that people would spend some shekels. Or "we can't remove radar, so lets make her unavailable". In all fairness, this statement is good for collectors, as now we can't just trust those free exp ships to stay "in store" eternally. So in future, if you want a free exp ship, better start working for it before NKWG takes it into Siberia.

 

But overall, amazing move again derpgaming.

Clearly MehSashi...

 

Missouri is the best team play high tier BB. When used properly with support she's the ultimate cap bully as the radar is pretty much impossible to silence. If you can play higher tier USN BB then she's the only BB you'll ever need. Throw away NC, Iowa and Monty :Smile_teethhappy:

Damn, i just went halfway through the grind, currently at  380k.

 

Now i have the following options.

 

1- Buy Nelson and don't give a [edited]about Missouri

2- Wait for a discount on freexp conversion and buy Missouri with around 8-10k doubloons

3- Wait for the Musashi

 

Option 3 seems more reasonable (plus i don't play US BBS while on Japanes i have to buy Izumo), but i think that Musashi will be more than 750k

Same here except my preference goes to Musashi, but I just got Montana and could use a million credit a game ship.

Not sure if I'll get 450fxp out of nowhere though

Well, the 100k free xp from the typhoon league sure come in handy now. If bad comes to worst I will have to convert some, but being that I have still about 150 new year camos and the papas come in regularly enough.

TBH, a good game In my kutuzov fully flagged for freexp (with premium) net me around 6-7k freexp per game.

 

I could push through  my flags reserves a little and rack 150-200k easily,

WoW WG.... So the statement that Missouri is "too cheap" already because of the spam of ways to get more free xp more easily were true. You want to raise the price (for Musashi) am i right?

Good thing i got it already (and Nelson) and this basically confirms Musashi release for fxp and even near her 80th Birthday.

BUT it is a massive dIckmove for all those free players that can't play that much or will come to late to the party.

No WG. You can't compare Missouri and Musashi. Even if you were to give Musashi Radar and those creditearnings it will still stay an IJN Ship......

Not cool. Really.

Taking into account what we know about Musashi atm, Missouri will be a lot more comfortable. So personally I'd take Missouri over Musashi atm. You want consistent guns from battleship, thus Musashi with nerfed gun parameters doesn't really wake the interest.

 

Overall trying to squeeze Musashi into tier 9 is just retarded. Yamato at tier 10 is the (rightful) reason we need ships like Montana and friends at tier 10 for them to be able to compete. And if something was same from birth to destruction on Yamato class, was the armor and guns. In that sense identical sisters, thus making Musashi's spot at tier 9 with nerfed gun parameters even more stupid. It is a game duh, but still. Where does it end? Shinano as planned at tier 8? Come on guys, you can get a quart into a pint pot!

 

 

So or so, as much as we know about Musashi atm, for pure ingame performance Missouri would indeed be my choice here. Ofc it's up to each individual what to do, what they prefer etc. Personally I'm 90% sure I'll get Musashi for the collection.

Wargaming has to make money somehow and if this makes people spend more money on dubloons for converting XP to free XP i see nothing [edited]'ish with that. I am currently sitting on 10.9 million XP awaiting convertion to free XP and about 300k free XP but with nothing to spend them on at the moment. Might spend money on Musashi, or not, though.

Can't be arsed to get upset over this as people really shouldn't be surprised, or angry, that Wargaming does this:cap_tea:

Most likely it will be in reality a T10 ship with preferential -3/+0 MM, sold for the price of a T9, like Missouri is today. Maybe for a higher price. Today’s WiP Musashi config is not relevant.
