Lots of good info. Devs said to keep an eye out on the Tokyo Game Show for info about Musashi.

Text version is available in the link.

I'm praying that Musashi doesn't become a CW reward!

Interesting, no more new CVs until the rework. It sounds like they might be serious about it, this time.

Nah i want her as the Japanese free xp ship. probably in her original configuration with maybe a better repair than the normal Yamato (not RN BB or old Yamato heal levels but better still), a refrence to the beating she took before going down (and even that could have not happened if her engines hadn't died during the beaching attempt).

Last I recall, they said she wasn't going to be one as she's wanted by too many, but they didn't know what to do with her.

 

My guess is a FXP Premium similar to Nelson and Missouri, but with the caveat of requiring ownership of Yamato as well (basically a one-ship branch). Especially if they opt for her 1943 version with the wing 155 turrets (less AA/secondaries), but give her buffs to secondary range (say 8km base) or maneuverability (akin to Alabama; including a 0.1 sigma reduction) in exchange. Maybe give her Yamato's old Super Repair Party while they're at it too.

Me too, not that I have much hope. CW is going to have a carrot to entice people.

 

...although maybe after the Alabama debacle, and signs pointing to the first CW being Tier 8, the first reward may be Massachusetts.

They can have her; her stats are only slightly worse than the Alabama.

 

There's plenty of other good things in there Q&A as well; such as the possibility of Kitakami coming with Deep Water torps as an option, or the fact that it really does take time to negotiate with Naval Archives (moreso since everyone kept saying it's "easy"), the USN CL Line split is actually now in the early stages, Kidd being effectively dead in the water, and the possibility of a full Swedish line while the Dutch share with some other Europeans.

 

What I do find a little disappointing is that Super Akizuki is currently set as a Premium, instead of as a T9 IJN DD despite acknowledging the fact that they need to finish the last two tiers and that it was a mistake releasing the line incomplete. Then again, since Super Akizuki is a paper design, WG could create one as a Premium and another as a T9, with the T9 line version either being the Tzoli version or some other Hyper Akizuki. Then use the post-war Akizuki for T10; just trading out the anti-sub equipment for more main guns.

Man, if people thought there were too many Missouris, just wait for Musashi...

 

Oh, god help us. They better be seriously hard to get.

For a moment, I thought that you were making references to the recent earthquake on Mexico City

I have 1.5M XP just waiting to be converted, after spending my available FXP from regular play on finishing the grind to Conqueror for the Anniversary. I also own a Yamato and am not entirely a Potato with one. I'm ready. :cap_win:

 

Just release her for FXP WG; and I will fork over the cash. Day 1 purchase.

That it could potentially be slightly inferior to Yamato depending on configuration and gimmicks, if any. The only thing that would ever make her better than Yamato regardless of configuration is giving her better maneuverability; closer to what she had. Say at least Alabama's level of maneuverability, at the slight cost of 0.1 Sigma like Alabama, (or if it's the 1943 config, at the loss of a sizable amount of AA/secondaries instead).

 

While I personally wouldn't mind much what config she takes, it's unlikely WG would market an FXP without a solid advantage over the nearest line equivalent. Nelson had Hyper Heal and troll-worthy HE. Missouri gets Radar. Musashi will definitely get something(s) to make her worth the price, even if she ends up min-maxing towards anti-ship rather than all-around annihilator.

Beehive shells? Honestly I'd be fine if Musashi was a slightly differently configured Yamato, I'm so tired of gimmicks.

It wont have AP shells but it's HE will be better than conq. 

 

It also won't have a repair but instead will have 2x the HP of GK. 

 

Also it will get smoke and hydro.

 

It's plane will be a bomber.

That was in the Q&A as a possible general IJN weapon shell type, but not one they're actively working on right now as main guns were not coded to be able to "fire" upon aircraft (ie switching to Sanshikis and just firing in the direction of incoming aircraft and potentially melting down a few). They would be great flamethrowers vs ships though; 100% chance of Fires (before modifiers); just no actual shell damage.

Hopefully it won't be guaranteed fires because that can potentially be very broken in a similar manner as Conqueror. Unless they're willing to rework fire mechanics, they have to be careful when balancing those shells.

Musashi in any configuration would have way less AA than the 1945 Yamato we have in game now. Even if she keeps the 155 wing turrets she'd also have worse secondaries since she'd only have 6x2 instead of 12x2 127s, and since those fire HE they're overall more valuable than the AP shooting 155s. Though that could be made up for by giving Musashi HE-spitting 155s and increased secondary range. Or high accuracy secondaries like Graf Zeppelin reputedly got. Another thing that could be done is give her slightly better TDS since the real Musashi took a ludicrous 19 torps before sinking. (And being 1944 those were probably Mark 13 Mod 10 or later with 275kg Torpex warheads, not the much weaker Mark 13 Mod 0A with a 178kg TNT warhead that every USN CV from Bogue to Midway is stuck with in WOWS.)
