Anything better for doubloons than Massachusetts?

With the coupon I can have enough doubloons for the ship after the London event. I already have Tirpitz, Scharn, T-61 and Warspite. Is there anything else to consider?

Given what you already have in your port, Massachusetts makes total sense, unless you want to get Jean Bart before she's gone.
I have both and "Big Mamie" is more fun.  :-)

I also enjoy Mutsu in operations.

Your mileage may vary.  :-)

If you enjoy secondary build BBs Massachusetts is an excellent choice. She is widely considered to be one of the stronger tier 8 battleships and usually performs very well in tier 8 ranked.

I notice you have quite a few German premiums already. If you have experience playing and enjoy German cruisers, Prinz Eugen is also a very good choice at tier 8.

Mass is a great ship and a blast to play, it's actually been almost on par with the Jean Bart for the earnings I can make.  It's also a unique ship and, like Smolensk, requires a dedicated Captain to make the most out of her but it is so worth it.

For buying with Doubloons, I would go with Mass first.

Two tier 10 premium camos. I’ve been sitting on this fence for about half a year and still haven’t made up my mind. Rumor has it new dub ships should be coming, but judging by the unwillingness to sell op ships, i’m not sure they will be worth it.

of course the recent nerfs to tech tree ships/planned removal of the moskva makes me think permanent camos are worthless since there is no mitigating the risk they will nerf the ship for whose camo you paid dubloons.

Massachusetts if s must have if you play BBs at tier 8.  You can go full secondary and it's a monster... if you don't like full secondary, you can go tank build with accuracy and it does very well because it's heals come up so fast.  In my mind, for random battles, Massachusetts at tier 8 is the best BB.  In competitive it's a different story, but for randoms, there isn't a more OP BB at tier 8.

all of the t8 bbs are worth their weight in doublons. endless fun. Mass is perhaps the easiest and most versatile of them all, but Alabama, Kii, Tirp, Gascogne and Roma assure lots of flavours are ready and available. I find Vanguard a little boring to play, but it is a safe choice too. Kii is the most interesting (but not the easiest) of the bunch.

I did.  I won a JB but already had it so got Haunted Doubloons instead.  (They only appear during the Christmas full moon.)  Bought Mass with a 25% coopin and Hotlanta with a 20% coopin.

West Virginia at tier 6 is So OP and broken.  406mm guns in tier 6 is like a turkey shoot.   It also tiers up well.  Its slow but the guns and spotter plane are really enjoyable.

Just out of interest, do you have Mutsu with which to draw comparisons?

I don't have WV and probably won't buy her, if only because I am done with slow American BB's and already have Texas if I want to revisit that.

That's the premium Amagi with torps, isn't it?

I say wait off on spending.. One thing WG knows how to do, they know how to destroy their game by adding OP gun ships...

I say get the Benjie..Its so OP, it makes the MASS look like a regular almost borderline inferior ship.

Mutsu is terrible in comparison to West Virginia.  Mutsu takes so much damage and guns are much less accurate.  The Wv guns can troll some games.  Overall the WV hits so damn hard. 

The Wv over matches most all cruisers in its tier.  You will not regret getting the West Virginia if you like American bbs.  I play it much more than Massa. 

Massa does not tier up well.  You can have monster games in Massa but Wv has more monster games at its tier.  If you get tiered up to 7 you don't really care. 

The other nice thing about the West Virginia is you can share captains with Monty, IOWA, or NC.  Massa needs its own captain.  The Massa captain needs 18points to get the build up and going.  The Massa captain can be shared with Georgia and possibly Ohio.

I would hold off on any American BB until the effects of the IFHE and fire chance changes are realized. Might be a big nerf.
