Think it has already been pointed out, but yeah. May never get a Yammy, but if Mushi is relased, I'm there. (ninja'd)

It's about time that she would be placed into the game. Too bad she'll likely be easy prey to CVs due to a severe lack of AA guns.

1. promotes team play with AA-spec'd ships
2. likely balanced with superb secondary artillery~<3

 Perfect for close in brawls or sniping from a distance ;)

I guess I'm the only one that sees putting this thing at tier 9 is a bad idea.

You're getting a ship that can lolpen every bow in the game and has 16" of belt armor at tier 9 . . .

Just look at those stats, what business does it have at tier 9?

An Izumo can kill a Montana just as surely as a Yamato can. I've killed a Myoko in a Hashidate before they hard-lined the MM. And there's plenty of people complaining about high-tiers anyway, your complaints will be lost in the drone of the crowd.
As I stated above, and has been pointed out by others, she doesn't have much to speak of for AA, and this is the 1941 hull of the Yamato, not the 1944 you see at Tier X, several changes were made in that 3-year gap.
She also has vastly less secondary armament which, as a heavy-user of myself, can be a deciding factor in an engagement. A large fraction of my kills in Yamato are by secondary fire or the fires they start.

Personally, I think you're just scared that something has arrived to answer the Missouri

There's a difference though, the Izumo is tier 9, this thing is a Yamato with lighter AA (a problem easily corrected by having a couple cruisers near) and lighter secondaries (which make no difference at all when you're fighting more than 10 km away). I never mentioned the Missouri, I actually do not own one yet. But the thing is the Missouri is a tier 9 ship, It's an Iowa with a few key differences. Let's pretend the Missouri wasn't a tier 9 free xp ship but let's take away some of its AA and put it down at tier 8, sound balanced? Well the Musashi in the current form is pretty much the same thing. It also has 97,300 hit points, nearly 20,000 more than the next highest tier 9.

You still sound rather tilted that someone other than America is getting something nice, perhaps you should wait and see how it plays out before throwing a red, white and blue tantrum?

Which one of the two of us is being more civil in this discussion?

1. Uhh, isn't this mostly a Yamato at tier 9?

2. Shut up! It's balanced!

You left out the "[edited] Missouri" and "Red, White, and Blue tantrum" parts 

Yet again insulting my home for no reason. I ought to break out the Canadian jokes again.

Stow your nationalism for a moment and look at this from the meta of the game. Do you really NEED to see it play, to know that if this thing fights down at tier VII, its 460mm guns are going to eat everything alive? Yamato is a worthy combatant in Bismarck, North Carolina, Amagi, & Monarch...it doesn't need to be going against Gneisenau, Colorado, Nagato & King George. What we're talking about is effectively a Yamato with a 3-tier spread.

Furthermore, the Missouri is a poor example, it is not an Iowa brought down to tier VIII, it's still a tier IX at tier IX. If that still doesn't reach you, let me ask you this, would you want to be a tier VII driver suddenly facing down Montana? Or Conqueror? Großer Kurfürst? 

No thank you, Wargaming.

Well it's a good thing you two don't get a say in the matter~<3
And breaking out the Canadian jokes? Go for it, we laugh at ourselves all the time, we don't get tilted when someone insults us~
