What are the odds we'll see Musashi and Kronstadt again?

Has WG given any indication why they are removing the ability to obtain these ships with FXP or arsenal coal? Is there anything to suggest they will not return eventually? I spent virtually all of my coal on getting Musashi but Kronstadt I am less certain about. I'm more interested in the Alaska class (personally I'd prefer to be able to buy Guam) and Kronstadt seems less likely to be declared OP than Musashi so I imagine it may well return someday.

Supposedly it's because they were too popular. I can understand that about Musashi; Kron not so much. 

It's more likely that they are victims of the devaluation  of Free XP. Jean Bart costs considerably more than Musashi in coal, Alaska will be going for 1 million. So they may show up at some point, albeit with the increased prices.

Hmm Musashi might be gone for good. Kron might return.

Santa Crate fodder.  'Flash' sales on the premium shop if you're watching, etc.

Doesn't mean they can't rotate them into the coal lineup at some point for a while.

Kron's dispersion is trash, you ain't missing nothing to skip it now and get it through crates or super container in the future.

 

Musashi on the other hand, worth every coal/fxp!

I went ahead and got both, if they do come back they will probably cost much more.

Both of them can be counter by CV so most wouldn’t care too much about them.

It will probably end up like the type 59 in WOT. 

...a fate deserved as well by the E-25.

I've got the Musashi, just can't make up my mind about the Kronstadt because that FXP seems more valuable than coal to me. Also I'm aiming to get a Stalingrad eventually and Stalingrad seems to pretty much be the Kron on steroids.

     I'm sitting on a lot of free XP, but I just can't bring myself to get the Kronstadt.  Just pronouncing it sounds uncomfortable.  And I don't play the Moscow well.  I do have the Musushi.

     The only reason I could find for getting the Kron was posted by someone else in another thread; and that's by getting the Kron with free XP you won't get it in a SC.  Which is why I bought the Charleston.  And I should pick up any other ships with free XP, or coal etc.

     I've only received one ship from a SC; and that was the AZ, so I got very lucky in getting a ship I really like.  I may not be so lucky if I ever get a SC ship again.

Same here, I am going to get Musashi, but as far as Kronstadt is concerned, I am just not convinced its worth the expense no matter what you use to get it.

Thankfully I own both lol.

 

I got the Musashi with my coal but didn't pull the trigger on the Kron. I'm waiting on Alaska too.

Should certainly return, they're not OP.

They will probably continue as options for santa and supercrates just as the Missou is now. Missou was also given out at one of the bigger conventions.

Musashi doesn't have huge credit income like Missouri so yeah she should return someday. Same for Kronshtad.

 

That said, with the CV rework, I don't think it would be a good idea to play Musashi.

Interestingly enough, I had held off buying any Xmas boxes this year.

Reason being a lot of people having RNG crap all overt them, and few having RNG go there way.

Then as time went on more and more were getting lucky,

So today I decided to buy 10 of the medium boxes.

I got a few flags, some camo's and these....
