Let's compromise on the Missouri.

For me anyway as an American, this is one of the most iconic ships ever to sail, right along side the Constitution and the Enterprise. So let's compromise. Slap black camo on that rascal, give it the same credit earnings of the Bart or Alaska, call it the Missouri b and put it in the shop for 80 bucks. It's a part of our history and I'd love to have some version of it without having to spend 500 bucks on santa crates.

I’ll just futilely pray to the RNG gods of PC gamedom that I’ll get a supercrate and then do so again and hope for a Missouri. I really want that ship too. Just not in all black.

Why not just put in a New Jersey with normal credit earnings?

Because the surrender of Japan wasn't signed on the deck of the New Jersey is one arguement.

I guess we could also ask if a USS Washington premium will ever come out seeing as it was (debatable) the only US battleship to sink an enemy battleship in WW2

plus just the history behind it and the battle it fought in

New Jersey has more battle stars is the counter argument. She served in more battles and more wars than any other BB in the USN

Must have Radar though, or 2.0 sigma to represent accurate shooting.

That's only because Truman took over after FDR died and he was from Independence, MO. FDR was likely going to send Iowa, based on what I've heard. I tend to think of the MO as a bit of a glory hog, considering that she's considered the iconic one, yet NJ and Iowa did more both during and after the war. I felt quite guilty after selling off my Iowa last night to help fund the acquisition of Montana, while still hanging on to MO for reasons obvious. I plan to get Iowa back just as soon as I've got the credits built back up for it. It was at least useful to have 2 Iowa class ships at the same time to try out two competing builds against each other to see which one would be better for Monty, Iowa was reload focused, MO was accuracy, accuracy won, but the reload build wasn't bad by any means, just more situational.

And because Cher didn't shake her skanky [edited] on the deck of the New Jersey in a  music video .  Why the Navy ever permitted that is beyond me.

I understand the the iconic argument - that makes sense to me. But if you're going to argue that you need access to the iconic ship, then why would you slap a fake black camo on it? If you're so willing to change its appearance to get it in game, why don't you just put a stick note on your monitor that says "Missouri"?

 

To be clear, I'd support bringing back the Might MO for sale/unlock so long as it doesn't have the credit multiplier, and players who have the current version keep the current version - but to do claim history and then stuff non-history into it just doesnt make sense.

I hope you get it. It's simply worth having for so many reasons.

At first I thought this was a joke, now I realize you are serious. Just another idea WG.

Put up an auction house....its the best part of Warcraft.... Idea trademarked. I would sell some ships, WG can take a 10% cut...

First of all: the "black" version would lead to another forum rampage because people want her with a normal camo.

Second: the main reason people were after her was the credit earnings, not Cher, "John Doe" or the signing of the Japanese surrender

Third: the premium camo of the Iowa looks the same like the camo for the Missouri, so ask WG for adding the name Missouri on it, buy the camo and you are done.

Great Idea. Also incredibly easy since the credit potential is linked to the camo not the ship. So..... yeah would be cake.

As a collector, I wouldn't want it if it only came with the black camo. I would be happy with New Jersey.

There are now people asking WG to let them pay them $80 for a clone ship that simply has a radar instead of a plane,  with the credit printing potential removed. To all of you who have stuck up for WG's over-the-top pricing on premium ships, this is the fruit of your labor. 

Seriously, the Missouri is nothing special.

I'm a history nerd. Maybe it's just me, but I want her for what she represents, those who don't learn from history are dommed to repeat it and all that.....

To this American, she is very special and I would love to drive her....
