Every one survived and all were complimented on a great battle. The Mutsu in Aegis is great fun, the torps are even usable a lot of times. 20190905_205926_PJSB506-Mutsu_37_Ridge.wowsreplay
First of all kudos to WG. They have listened to the outcry over WV, and have made a very sensible compromise by renaming the current ship WV'41, and promising a late war WV'44 later. But now that the genie is out of the bottle, and the precedent of selling the same ship from different time periods has been set, I'd like to draw your attention to this ship: Mutsu was a ship which had been requested very early on, and always turned up on 'what ship you want to see' threads. I am very confident however in saying that IJN BB fans hoping for Mutsu were wanting the 1943 final form, and NOT a regurgitated old Nagato A hull. Unfortunately there wasn't enough rioting for WG to give a crap and recycled goods is what we got. Unsurprisingly this lazy cashgrab was poorly received, and though I don't have sales figures I'd bet it sold badly. Seeing another player in a Mutsu is like spotting Big Foot. On WoWS Stats and numbers Mutsu has a lifetime battle count of 128,339 on the NA server. Normandie, the ship with the second lowest battle count dwarfs this with 410,308. I think it's safe to say that this unwanted ship is a failure. But WG has a chance to revisit Mutsu now, thanks to the precedent set by WV. Go on Wargaming. Give the IJN BB fans the tier 7 1943 Mutsu they actually wanted. It wouldn't even be too much work since it'd be a fully upgraded Nagato with even worse AA and some tweaks here and there. Keep the current Mutsu as it is and maybe rename it to Mutsu 1925 or something, then create a new Mutsu 1943. It'd sell like hotcakes, I predict far better than the current Mutsu. WG gets our money, fans get the Mutsu they actually wanted, and everyone is happy.
hi So got up this morning jumped on the computer got a few games in and then decided to head over to the forum to see what is up, and low and behold I find that word from up high about this whole West Virginia scandal had arrived, but we will get to that later. Lets talk about the old girl first and WG idea to create her in this model, the way I see it The Pre Pearl Harbour version is not the problem here to its those crazy kids at Lesta, why on earth they came to the conclusion to design the 41 version is beyond me, maybe they thought because Arizona went so well they could repeat it or maybe they use you some sought of lucky dip draw system where by they pick a name and year model out of hat, who knows with those kids. Anyway things are getting heated and people are getting inflamed and passionate and a lot name calling has been directed at poor old Wee Vee 41and its not really her fault so I think we should just relax leave her to rest in peace and focus our energies on convincing the powers that be to not go through with this design constructively. Now lets have look at this statement from the DEV blog World of Warships Development Blog SpSonSsoSredS · 19 hrs · Dear players. After the announcement of the tier VI American battleship West Virginia, we noticed that many of you would like to see this ship in a later configuration. Thank you for your feedback. We would like to inform you that the battleship, which we plan to add to the game now, will be renamed and called West Virginia ’41, and in the future we plan to create a West Virginia from a later period. WELL AT LEAST THEY ACKNOWLEGDED THAT PEOPLE ARE NOT HAPPY BUT THERE GOING TO DO IT ANYWAY, WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED, BUT YOU WILL GET ANOTHER CHANCE WITH A LATE WAR MODEL MAYBE, YEAH RIGHT I WAIT WITH BAITED BREATH FOR THE SECOND COMING. We would also like to note that the creation of a new configuration of the ship is a long process, which is largely similar to the creation of a ship from scratch. To reliably recreate the state of the ship for a certain year, we need to collect a lot of materials and evidence, work on the model, and carry it through all stages of testing. Therefore, we can not promise that West Virginia of the late period will appear in the game in the near future and ask for your patience and understanding as we work to deliver a ship that fits your expectations according to your valued feedback. THIS SECOND PARAGRAPH IS A GEM, THEY TELL US SHIPS TAKE A WHILE TO MAKE " WELL GUYS MAYBE YOU HAVE STARTED WITH THE LATE YEAR SHIP IN THE FIRST PLACE " THEN THEY NEED INFO TO MAKE THE LATE WAR SHIP, GEE HATE SEE WHAT THERE LIBRARY LOOKS LIKE THEN, OK HERE IS A FRIENDLY TIP ON HOW TO GET INFORMATION ON SHIPS " GOOGLE IT ". NOW HERE IS THE KICKER WITH THE SECOND PARAGRAGH " BUT YOU MIGHT NOT GET THE SHIP YOU WANT ANYWAY BUT WE WILL MAKE THE 1941 SHIP YOU HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR, THE LIGHTS ARE ON BUT NOBODY'S HOME " This whole statement is a total contradiction, did I miss something is there a election in Russia, are these guys running for Parliament, because this exactly sounds like what a politician would say to voters. Really WG your in house SPIN DOCTORS are bad, you guys really need to use a outside PR firm when it comes to these controversial decisions you make, this statement sounds like a really badly worded failed attempt at damage control with the hope that people will simply buy this nonsense and it will quietly disappear, sorry WG its not going to happen, your digging yourself into a bigger hole. So its my understanding that a premium ship designed by WG are suppose to be in theory designed to there final model, however I'm certain someone will provide the correct information on premium ships, anyway based on that premise they still decided to design a Mutsu that did not have its1943 configuration and despite protest from the community they still went and did it, you barely see a Mutsu sailing in game, and when you see someone in one its like a " BREAK GLASS IN CASE OF EMERGENCY" situation. Tirpitz this ship is one of my all time favourite ships it was the first premium I ever bought but its not a premium ship in its final configuration, its the 1942 model not the 1944 one, @dseehafer who was a bigger fan than I tried to bring this to the attention of WG many times in the last couple of years, we know it WG knows it but we will never get a 1944 model. Now they are doing it again with this ship and they seem determined to push ahead no matter what, now its there company and they can do what they like however its a business and business needs money to continue so you can either buy the ship in the 1941 model and send a message to them that they can keep getting away with this and design the ships you DONT want or do what others have suggested show them that your not happy by keeping your wallet closed. Again I say 1941 West Virginia is not the problem its the people who refuse to listen to there customer base. regards
