Really.  There is only one answer.  While you still have the chance to get the Mighty Mo, do everything you can to get it if you don’t have it.

Would love to get either one, but do not have the FXP to get them. Or the cash for the doubloon costs. But thanks for the video Zoup.

I have the Missouri already (along with everyone else).  Looking forward to picking up my mostly Tier 10 battleship that gets Tier 9 matchmaking.

That’s the way to look at it!

I listened to this on the drive in today as this is my precise choice.  I had been grinding the FXP for Missouri under the prior info that it was here to stay.  I am at 351k FXP right now, so a bit under halfway.  I don't have that much time to play and I know I can't earn the remainder in the time I have left with my current work schedule, but I am willing to spend some money.

The issue that cropped up is that the reviews for Musashi have all come in saying it is overpowered, which makes me wonder how long it will be around.

Right now I am leaning towards getting Missouri and crossing my fingers that Musashi stays around for at least a while.

at about half way there, you would need to spend about $50 to get the MO. Unless you really need the in game credits, I don't think it's worth it. Just an Iowa with radar. But hey, I'm not very good with the Iowa,  but if you are, the ship might be more fun for you.

Yeah...  this is a grey area. One way to look at it is that’s how much you’d be paying for a T8 BB and this one will pay dividends in the future.  If you don’t play often, the extra credits you generate can be important.  I’d say grind that free XP hard between now and 0.7.2 and see where you are at.  Get as close as you can.  But the MO is the way to go.  Musashi while OP is harder to master than MO based on its size, dispersion and lack of mobility.

Well, I figure I can get it down to $30-40 before 7.2 is here.

As to how I do with Iowa, well, I don't have any Tier IX ships.  That said, I seem to do well with battlecruiser style play.  Hood, Kongo and Giulio Cesare are the BBs I've enjoyed most.

Of course there is only one answer and that is both. Get Missouri now while you can then get Musashi.

In your video you call Musashi dispersion "wonky" and claim that Missouri has laser guns.  You do know that Musashi has tighter dispersion than Missouri WITH the accuracy mod, right?  Missouri has maximum dispersion of 261m with Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2, while Musashi has maximum dispersion of 256m...  Sigma values are compatible, and at 14km for all practical purposes are identical.

Also Missouri COULD bow tank everything in its tier to its heart content, only until Musashi appeared.  Now you can get citadel penetration through your bow when top tier...

Having said all that, I do agree that if you don't own Missouri, now is the chance to grab her.

I’ll have to verify that with the local expert...  but iirc with the plotting room Iowa/MO goes from some of the worst dispersion to the best in the game.

 

ok...LWM provides this gif.  Red is Musashi.  Green is MO.  180 shells each.  They can stack four times.

Missouri vs Musashi?

One is faster, has better detection, better maneuverability, has literally twice the AA, has radar, prints credits...

the other has bigger guns and a better torp belt.

Pretty much...

but...  a MO can easily citadel the Musashi with plunging AP on the front citadels if not angled correctly...  it’s citadels sit higher than Yamato.

I was on the fence too but bit the bullet on the Mo a few days ago. I figured I could do well (or suck) equally with both BUT with the Mo I wouldnt be an XP pinata for CV's and even tho CV's are rare, you can bet CV players are chomping at the bit to get at a fat, ponderous target like Musashi.

Im not sure high tier ships are my thing, I seem to get 150k attack or 30k attack and nothing in between.....and then loose either way lol.

Quote of the day, from Zoup:

Quote

Let's face it.  In tier 10, if it's your time to go...and a Midway singles you out....it's your time to go.  Doesn't matter if you're in a Yamato...or even a Montana.  I mean...you're donezo....that's it!

 

....and...in my first game after typing the above quote we have:
