I get the feeling she will replace Izumo. It would make since Izumo is too much of a fire wall and Musashi from what I am seeing would be a perfect replacement.

Nah, Izumo isn't that bad.  She'll be a free XP premium.

Kind of hope but I think you are right. I really don’t want to be forced to decide between her or Missouri.

Whatever the case is, having the Izumo in your port might be a good investment, who knows, maybe WG will replace her later on and suddenly you get a new tier 9 along with the possibility of the Izumo being a free premium.

Replacing an entire ship is very unlikely.

If anything, WG would buff Izumo. Midships armor buff, Concealment buff, Superstructure rework, Rudder shift buff, the Options are all out there.

I thought that the Musashi was virtually identical to the Yamato.

How is the Musashi going to replace the Izumo at tier 9.

Why would WG make the Izumo a premium? How do you place 460mm guns into tier 9?

Isn't this topic that the OP has begun nothing but hot air drivel?

Great question.  All I see is more overmatch, however the sigma is supposed to be 1.8 so there is that, and the aa is not going to be that great.  But then again the kahb is considered a destroyer so go figure. lol.

It's not and Musashi is a tier 9 according to noster. So it's a free xp ship or a replacement for Izumo

Also Musashi never got the AA update Yamato received during the war she kept her amazingly secondaries

Also it's kind of rediculous that a tier 8 (Kii) premium is better on paper than the tech tree tier 9.

A: there is like one massive secondary gun.

B: there is virtually the aa of a shimakaze on that.

C:higher stigma means horrible dispersion.

the Izumo isn't bad, but it is far from good. she is very slow, big profile, rudder shift is horribly slow, not to mention most of the time you cannot fire her third turret because of its placement. it would be best if WG uses the Musashi to replace the Izumo.

I'd argue that the only ways Musashi is superior to Izumo at tier 9 are her armor and that she gets overmatch capability. You're looking at a better armored, stock hull Izumo with 18 inch guns and slightly better turret placement. For that, I'd rather keep the current Izumo (and I like her anyway). From what I've seen, Izumo's 16.1 inch guns have better pen at range than the 18.1 inchers do because of the crazy velocity they have, and they have decent accuracy and a faster reload. I'd like to know how not being able to use the third turret because of angling is any different than any other 3x3 turreted BB in the game. My experience has always been that turrets 1&2 are the most used on Yamato, North Carolina, Alabama, and Iowa (although I've only played Iowa on test servers, can't afford the credits for her yet. Darn British BB line got in the way). I'm pretty sure that Musashi is likely to be the IJN version of the Missouri. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if Izumo got a buff at some point in the future, but I don't think she's going anywhere, and that's fine with me.
