No, let's actually give this only to people who deserve the damn thing by not sucking at this game.

It's connected to the Seagull captain somehow.  If they were going to sell it, Seagull would have come with the ship purchase imo

Yes! People want it!

 

Other people do not want it. Why? Because many players, as well as WG, do not want players to be able to buy their way to tier IX.

I have tier 9 and 10 ships and I would buy that one.

What's the difference between buying one's way into T8 and into T9? Those ships see each other on a regular basis anyway.

​The difference is that tier VIII can still be bottom tier. Tier IX will rarely ever be bottom tier since tier X battles usually grab tier VIII ships too.

If the USS Missouri gets implemented as the 1st t9 premium then I want the USS Kidd

:popcorn:  I really don't care one way or the other, but man, people get fired up over this T9-10 (and to a lesser extent T8) premiums.

I say "NO" to selling it, but "YES" to making a mission that rewards it.  Two ways to handle this.

 

Option 1:  Players must WIN 50 T9 battles, in PvP, only.  Only using a T9 ship counts.

- There will also be a minimum damage dealt threshold required that WG will not announce, but it will prevent AFK players from piggybacking off a win.

 

That will:

- Restrict access to most players who do not have a T9 at all.

- Restrict easy play since T9 will be the start of losing credits for those who are an average player and not using Premium Time/Flags/Permacamo to reduce operation costs.

- Would take an average of 100 battles unless one had extreme luck into getting 50 victories straight.  More likely, it could take in excess of over 100 battles.

- Restricted to PvP, preventing "easy" grinding of Co-Op for the requirements.

 

Option 2:  Players must EITHER:

WIN 50 T9 battles, in PvP, only.  Only using Iowa counts.

WIN 100 T9 battles, in PvE, only.  Only using Iowa counts.

- 2 bars to display progress, only one bar needs to be filled.

- There will also be a minimum damage dealt threshold required that WG will not announce, but it will prevent AFK players from piggybacking off a win.

- PvE wins required are double that of the PvP requirements so as to not seem "easier" and, keep in line with appearances of not favoring "casual players" (their perception).  Though divisioned Iowas in PvE can still likely hammer out wins faster.

 

That will:

- Restrict access to players who actually have an Iowa.

- Restrict easy play given T9 maintenance costs; moreso in PvE.

- Take even longer to grind in PvE, but allow the 30% that purely play Co-Op a chance to get Missouri, though only if they use an Iowa.

- Encourage more USN BB play (good for WG's metrics, at any rate).

 

In both cases, that should be sufficiently tough, but doable.  Granted, if WG wants to make it tougher, they could give it a time limit of weeks instead of a month or more.  Or instead, those that miss out on it during the initial event have to take the hard road for it in the form of a multi-stage mission chain; such as winning 25, 50, 75, and 100 T9 PvP battles or 50, 100, 150, and 200 T9 PvE battles (similar to WoT's challenge missions for exclusive T8+ tanks, but more straightforward).

As opposed to, let's say, tier7, which nobody complains about? :facepalm:

Tier VII can be bottom tier. The issue with them being top tier so often is because of WG's decision to help tier III and IV players, which conversely made tier V ships lunch for tier VII.

Yeah, T9 can be bottom tier too. So the question still stands - what's the difference?

Tier 8 is as high as I have gotten.  I want USS Missouri, but agree a T9 premium should not be sold.  I would be fine with a T9 mission requirement to earn her, as I am close enough with several T8's and have enough Free XP to get me into a T9.  Let's do this!

Just make a mission requiring T9+ ships, and a large amount of base xp over a month. Seems fair, that'll immediately exclude the majority of the playerbase and keep it out of the hands of people not experienced enough yet to use Missouri.

The honest part of me thinks that this event should be restricted only to Tier IX and X BBs, maybe even make it an Iowa only event.  That way it would prevent people like me from getting it.  I'll be unlocking the Ibuki soon™, but I don't have any regular tech tree battleships higher than the Wyoming.  I can defiantly see how it might be an issue if people who have never played BBs can get their hands on one from Tier IX.

 

However....the greedy entitled millennial in me hopes they make it so it's accomplishable with any Tier IX or X ship so I can get my hands on a Tier IX BB with out having to work my way up a BB line...

Make it top of the 2nd USN BB ship line? Why's it gotta be reward or premium at all? Trade up its stats with Iowa for a different ship flavor: trade in AA for dispersion, range for detectability, then you.... Wait, what?  

 

Whats that you say? 

 

Oh right, I forgot - can't have USN ships getting on actual parity in this game, right. Must keep artificial gimping.

 

Nevermind. Delete suggestion. Issue warning.  Carry on, ma weaboos.
