Missouri removal

I read that the Missouri is to be removed from the game and replaced with a different ship (Japanese I believe).  I was hoping to acquire sufficient experience to acquire the Missouri, so does anyone know when this is to happen?

Bring Home Mighty Mo

Now's your chance to pick up the US tier IX USS Missouri for in-game Free XP -- she's departing on release of Update 0.7.2 as we roll out a new tier IX battleship that can be acquired with Free XP. We decided two ships occupying the same niche at the time is one too many. Get grinding, you can still get Missouri for about two more months.

I am pretty sure it will be at patch/update 7.2 which is supposed to be here in about 2 months. Not too long so if you want Mighty Mo concentrate on getting it whie you can. I got it a couple days ago. Great ship.

The new T9 Premium Free XP ship will be the IJN BB Musashi which is basically a nerfed Yamato.

QFT, the Mighty Mo prints credits, 500k is normal and 1 million is not out of reach in a good first win, and is a great US BB captain trainer. It is fairly safe to assume that the Musashi will be the Japanese equivalent.

People keep comparing the Musashi to the Yamato and consider it bad, but just compare it to the Izumo....then suddenly the Musashi is fantastic.

Just hope the Musashi prints credits like the Missouri since I may or may not get the last 139,000 Free XP collected in time.

My supplies of special Camo, Flags, and Premium Time are starting to run low now.

Don’t forget that you can covert free XP at a discount right now if you need to.

Santa boxes are also good for camo and flags.

Oh yeah, at the 1:35 FXP sale right now, 139k old XP converted to FXP would be 3,972 doubloons. That is $19.15 if you bought 3972 in the any doubloons option in the premium shop. Almost as important, the upgrade modules are on sale for 60% off, so I upgraded all the modules on my Missouri for 2.75M, when the slot 6 module usually cost 3M by itself.

 

BTW, ports are on sale for 75 doubloons each, which is 4 for the normal price of one.

Yeah I am out of Doubloons as well, was able to get close to 60k Free XP converted. But I can't buy anymore Doubloons right now since just got a working computer to play WOWs on again. And it would take 3,972 Doubloons to get the rest converted to Free XP at the moment. :Smile_sad:

Yep - the module bonus right now is awesome.  I’m getting multiple ships outfitted that were bought, but not ready to go!

Grind as many games as you can for the 200% first win bonus and that should help!

About port slots on sale; port slots come with all premium ships and more come in containers.  At this point, I've got 48 fully upgraded ships and 38 vacant port slots.  Accumulated slots can't be resold later.

Yeah I have been making good use of the 200% bonus and the premium time they gave us since Christmas. That's the reason certain flags and special camo are starting to runnlow for me since I make the best possible use of Free XP Flags and camo by using them when given free premium time and there are XP bonuses. It's the reason I even have 521,000 Free XP earned  since Gebuary when I started playing WOWs.

Rest of the time I just try to save up Flags and special camo for the next time. 

Thankfully I am doing ok as far as port slots go thanks to a kind/ generous player gifting me some port slots out of the Blue as a very pleasant and unexpected gift.

Doubloons are what are hard to get a hold of since unlike World of Tanks Blitz, WOWs does not give opportunities for earning free gold much at all. Been trying to keep an eye on Forum for contests I can enter and actually win, but so far only won Doubloons from 1 of them and the Doubloons you get at Rank 11 in Ranked battles in couple of seasons.

Get it if you even think you might want it - and it's free.  And then it's gone, not even in the tech tree.

I sure regret not buying the Kutuzov - now it's gone.

You only have the chance of getting it from the Santa crates, got mine from those recently.

I would need 390K F EXP to get the Missouri and I would like to print credits as I am always around $40-$50 Mil.  I have 900K Elite captain XP from my Bismark captain but would need to buy $100 of doubloons to convert them into F EXP....

Good approximation - just got 0.7.0 this week and probably 2 weeks for 0.7.1 and 2 weeks after that for 0.7.2 (patches are released on Tuesdays I think) so the next patch might be as early as the 13th but could be as late as the 20th.  They do announce in advance so you should have advanced warning.

Finally, someone puts the ship into the proper perspective.
