Musashi and Kronshtadt

Starting from update 0.8.0, Tier IX ships Musashi and Kronshtadt will no longer be available to purchase with Free XP and also cannot be obtained for Coal in the game client.

These ships are becoming extremely popular for their tier, and to avoid Tier IX battles becoming packed with them, as well as to maintain diversity, we decided to remove the possibility of purchasing or obtaining these ships for an indefinite period. As such, they have already been replaced with French Tier IX battleship Jean Bart, with plans in progress to introduce another ship of the same tier in future.

We understand that accumulating resources for these ships is a long process, which is why we wanted to warn you in advance so that those of you who are interested can steer these ships into your Ports before Update 0.8.0 goes live. You have approximately two months remaining to get Musashi and Kronshtadt.

  • The following warships may now appear in Supercontainers: Kronshtadt, Missouri and Musashi. (Starting in Update 0.7.11 November 21)

Well hopefully certain ships, many of us have been waiting for, will have been released by then so we know how much FXP or coal we have left.  Then I can personally consider how to buy the Musashi or the Kronshtadt.

Well, that certainly simplifies my FXP choices. I have about 500,000 loose, but I'm not so desperate for either Mush or Kron to spend money to convert the balance. I shall keep on trying, and if I get there, I get there.

Missouri being able to appear in a supercontainer is HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE news. 

I will also never be able to get enough coal in time to obtain Musashi. I wonder what will be happening with Salem.

Lame. I have both ships, but I hate seeing content get gated off like this (and no, these ships appearing in Supercontainers is not good enough).

I was hoping Missouri would become available again somehow, but in a Super Container?  WG is twisting the knife at this point.

They are having massive issues with Free XP ships screwing up MM at tier 9. I would be shocked if Missouri ever returns to the game. 

 

I would not hold my breath..

And so, the free xp story unfolds … nice of them to give players a small chance in hell of receiving those ships once they're removed :)

… points to current threads on how free xp is being devalued

Since Khron is being replaced, I guess with Alaska?  This means Alaska for DB or Coal?

Hopefully, this cryptic next ship in the future is the Alaska. Everyone has been waiting on that ship's release for a long long time. Hell, she was much more anticipated than either of the current selection of tier 9 and 10 premiums.

This isn't a bad thing. You get like 1 to 2 Musashi's in every battle it seems. Kron isn't as popular but WG says it's OP and hence that is the real reason it's going. 

This assures Alaska as a free xp ship. I think Jean Bart will be as well once 8.0 drops.

Syafpztddt? It really hurts my brain when people fake write with Cyrillic letters.  I'm guessing based on context it's supposed to say Kronshtadt....but it took me a while to decipher it.

So let's add even more Tier IX ships! Genius!  While continuously taking a piss on a historically significant ship (Missouri)....in a game about WWII warships.

Amazing how I read in a post from a forum dweller that WG is upset about there being too much Free XP out there but they are still giving it away in crates. At least this doesn't appeal to me at all.

Why would MM care whether your boat is a tech tree or FXP? That is like saying too many folks have gotten to T9, and it's causing a MM problem.

I really hope I get the Mushashi before the patch, I'm only about 20k coal away and have been saving up for it since starting.... It will definitely effect my satisfaction for the game if not. It'll be annoying if there's yet another ship for people who have been playing a while that I'll never get access too.

About half way to the Kron as well but if they replace it with something like they Alaska I'd be happy.

Patch 7.12 should drop Dec 12th and if WG goes back to a 4 week Dev cycle, then patch 8.0 should drop Jan 9th.

 

Patch 7.11 is looking to be 4 weeks long based on the PTS and patch 7.12 is looking to be 5 weeks long based on the campaign to earn PEF. So patch 8.0 is looking like it will drop Jan 23rd. But if you can get Musashi and/or Kronshtadt before then, do so.

fixed patch dates based on Dev bulletin 7.12.

You should make it. 20k doesn't take that long to get if you play consistently and select More Resources containers.

I laid out a lot of the dates for the RN event. Guineas are supposed to be inclusive of patch 7.12, so that would mean being converted on Patch 8.0. Now, my dates for 7.12 and 8.0 could be a week early if patch 7.11 is 4 weeks long. Then 7.12 drops on Dec 19th and 8.0 on Jan 16th, which I would not be surprised if that happens.

That fits with the conversion date of January 9th for Guineas.

Sorry to see Musashi go.  I have a blast with her and would recommend her if anyone is on the fence about it.

Maybe if the majority of tech tree Tier 9s outside of DDs weren't complete and utter trash (And being economically inferior to Tier 10s with prem camo), the Tier 9 MM wouldn't be flooded with FXP ships. :Smile_facepalm:
