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.

Ya I got both already.  Musashi is great but Kron offers an unique experience and has some fun railguns.  Overall, both are worth the XP.

Love the marketing here.

Step 1: TIX Missouri- Get it with only 750,000 Free XP.  Players with a lot of Free XP purchase Missouri.  Players with not enough Free XP SPEND MONEY to convert XP.  SALES!!!!! $$$$  Free Ship = Revenue  Time goes by,,, sales go down.

Step 2: TIX Missouri- too popular, OP, Credit monster, we're losing money on her, messing with the game - we're taking it away forever, can only get with FREE XP for 2 more months.  Players want this obviously OP ship so SPEND MONEY to buy dubloons or convert XP.  SALES!!!!!   Free Ship = more Revenue

Step 3: TIX Musashi - Get it with only 750,000 Free XP. Players with a lot of Free XP purchase Musahi.  Players with not enough Free XP SPEND MONEY to convert XP.  SALES!!!!! $$$$  Free Ship = Revenue  Time goes by,,, sales go down.

Step 4: TIX Musashi - too popular, OP, messing with the game - we're taking it away forever, can only get with FREE XP for 2 more months.  Players want this obviously OP ship so SPEND MONEY to buy dubloons or convert XP.  SALES!!!!!   Free Ship = more Revenue

Step 5: TIX - Jean Bart  rinse,,, repeat

Typical WG: We're removing these ships to force you to spend money on them now or play an assload, but don't worry, if you miss the deadline, you have an infinitesimal chance to get it from a supercontainer which you have an infinitesimal chance to get in the first place.
