My thoughts on Mutsu

My only real problem with WG tossing Mutsu onto the premium pile is that she has nothing iconic about her. I mean, we're talking about a ship whose only claim to fame is blowing up and going to meet Davey in his Locker.

 

Combat experience-Nil.

Political anything-Nil.

 

She's no Scharnhorst, Tirpitz, Warspite, Arizona, Texas, That said, she does at least have the distinction of having been fully built and having served, compared to Nikolai and Ishizuchi. But, still.

 

It makes me wonder what the next iconic premium is going to cost, as well.

 

Personally, I don't want lackluster clones, or ships with no history. The thing I love most about this game is the ability to play with history, and I want, need, to play with ships that had a part in making history. Mutsu doesn't fit the bill.

 

This is simply my own opinion, I ain't sayin WG is wrong for how they're doing this, or for releasing the ship. I just honestly don't know if I'm going to buy her. She doesn't "do" anything for me, personally.

It's more content in the game and no one is forcing anyone to buy it. To some people they buy it for the gameplay and not the history. Like me. I don't really give a rats a** about the Belfast's history but she is a great ship to play.

It does have a significant diplomatic, political and administrative history behind it. Just no real combat experience.

Did I knock the content? Did I say anyone was forcing anyone to do anything? No, I did not. I simply stated how it works for me. Please understand what you read before you reach for the sanctimony. :)

 

I enjoy Belfast for both the history and the gameplay.

I think there's really only one reason to buy Mutsu: 410 mm guns at tier 6.

It does? Odd, then, that I have never heard anything about it. o.O

Ah, but with no AA and no armor...

It's the trade off. I think~?

I think he talks about all the political discussions that allowed Japan to build the Mutsu. Some of the points made were actually very funny. Mutsu was partially funded by money from school children and scrapping her would disappoint those poor children. Doesn't that sound hilarious?

Most people aren't into that kind of thing. I personally find the interwar period more interesting than all the shooting on either end of it, so Mutsu holds significance to me as one of the "big seven." There was a lot of debate and negotiation over whether she would even survive the signing of the Washington Naval Treaty, and her continued existence ensured that other 16" gun-armed warships survived the treaty as well. Yonai Mitsumasa served as captain for a time, and Mutsu also served as the Emperor's flagship a couple of times.

Considering that T6 has a very good chance to meet multiple cv's, no thanks. xD

Tirpitz literally sat in Norway and did nothing except provide the RAF a juicy target and Arizona just sat in a harbor and exploded.

Ok, I knew all that. I thought you meant something truly significant. :D Her survival of the Treaty was entirely due to how she was funded. I honestly believe if she'd not been funded by schoolchildren, she'd have never survived the Treaty.

Tirpitz literally tied up the entire RN Home fleet, just by sitting there and being a fat juicy target. :D AZ's significance is when it happened, not what she did with her guns, I'm a US citizen, AZ is very important to us.

Lert beat me to it.  Arizonas only claim to "fame" is also blowing up.

 

Also, what did tirpitz accomplish again?

Yeah no desire to get this ship. Already have Ishizuichi and now that I'll never really see above tier 4, I can grind a captain and seal club to my little hearts content. A tier 6, yeah, crushed by 7s and 8s constantly. Why my AZ and Dunkerque are port gems.

Bet they wait until all the premium BB are out in the wild before addressing the BB population woes. WG did something similar last year when they released a bunch of Destroyers to the shop, then introduced Radar and began the trimming on the class once they sold them. Release ships to a class when it's strong and the demand is there. WG aren't as stupid as we want to think they are.

I didn't get to choose where I was born. Apparently you did. Good on you.

 

Which actually has nothing to do with the symbols you choose to believe in.
