Can I just say, how excited I am for the State Ship/Museum Ship. I can barely contain my hype mechanic. I dont own the Alabama because I live in Massachusetts, and knew that the Big Mamie was coming eventually, just had to play the waiting game.

 

Featured below is the 1946 refit of Big Mamie during her trials.

Great pic of the Massachusetts! Thanks for sharing it. We don't have any information currently on this currently. However, please feel free to refer to the World of Warships news portal for any announcements or official confirmation.

USS Massachusetts seems like a campaign ship to me. I think they are trying the WOT route of giving ships away to keep people busy.

Her sister in Alabama is cool to walk through, for sure.  It's just a long way to New England for me.

Slept on this ship as a Cub Scout many years ago.  We got the run of the ship for a couple days.  Got to see the bridge and everything else before the Navy stripped it to reactivate the Iowas.

I also am from the Northern New England area of the U.S. I would also like to see the USS Massachusetts  and maybe the Maine class of Battle ships would be a pleasure http://www.navy.mil/navydata/ships/battleships/maine/bb10-maine.html  New at the game and really love it . Keep up the good work!

Or special limited ship, the BB 69 Maine, Montana class still in the drafting plans but the tide of the war was going towards aircraft carriers so it left  the drawing board. 

But it would be nice to see it in action.  :Smile_smile:

That would be cool. I have the Bama and wouldn’t get the Massachusetts otherwise.

Yeah, I'm thinking the same getting the Bama too...... Still thinking about it though will be awhile. 

I know they're different tiers but I'm having a lot of fun with the Wyoming for now!  :Smile_medal:

I just hope the Massachusetts comes out. It seems that the preview videos for this ship came out in the middle of September last year and since then its been largely crickets.   I hope it arrives soon, very frustrating to wait months for her.

It's in the extended tech tree but it doesn't say Soon. To me this means don't expect it to show up in the immediate future. Not that I can't be wrong just going by the past where Soon usually is added when it's release is actually "soon" LOL.

So not sure what the status of MA is? It is just a slightly reworked Alabama so no real need to test it over and over. They clearly are waiting for something? It should be a plug-n-play ship for them. 

All the new French BB's are in the extended tech tree and say Soon and we know they are do out in next update. The new BRN DD Premium that we are seeing in review videos also says Soon and I believe is due out shortly. I know Roma said Soon right before it showed up.

MA doesn't have that yet so?

Could this maybe become a BB with excellent dispersion and manuvrebility (for BB), but poor AA and a vulnerable citadel to balance. Maybe even reduced max range to force players to got xloser and not just camp at the back.

Poor AA? Her AA is almost identical to North Carolina's excellent loadout, and substantially better than Alabama's when it comes to medium caliber guns. What I really am curious about is the ugly prospect of power creep despite her sister already performing admirably. If WG pulls a stunt like they did with Belfast and allows her to get modules reserved for higher tier ships I will be pretty irritated.

I have been waiting for this one. I loved being onboard the Massachusetts as a kid and would love to sail her in game. Just wish I knew the release date.

It still exists. I still have the test version of it in my port. Problem is, WG seems to have it on hold for release with no date in sight because last I heard they were trying to figure out how to keep it similar to the Alabama without it being a clone.
