If it was made available 2,000,000 FXP?

 I think I would pay 4 million for the Stalingrad. It would be nice if all steel ships had a FXP price.

Whoa.  That's tough.  Maybe.  I'd be a lot closer than forking out for these two.

If the Missouri was 2 million free XP and I had 2 million free XP?

I'd get the Alaska and the Friesland.

It would certainly be more in consideration than the two ships offered for 2M that we have now.  But, that is only because it offers something special, which is the credit earning potential.  If it was just the MO with normal earning potential, it would probably be in the "no" category too at that price.

Make that 3,000,000 FXP. The Missouri is the only ship in the game with which I have a personal connection.

Yes.

Because I’ve been to see it, and I make a point of getting any ship that’s in game I’ve physically been to visit, without exception.

so i have it from back when it was free XP and i coverted XP and ground hard for it. i don't do well in her but i have her. she and Arizona are the alpha and omega of WW2 pacific fighting. yes i have the Arizona too. 

to answer the question no i would not. none of the ships are worth that amout of time or grind. if you have it and want it sure have fun. if you are starting from day 1, just no. they will keep upping the price of things for no reason. it will only drive away players. i just don't want to be part of that.

Back in the days when I was super desperate for credits, maybe.  Now...I don't know.  The radar gimmick still catches some people off guard :)

I think they should just do a Missouri Black - where it has all the in game features of the original, but has its credit making in line with other premiums.  Sell it for 1.0 mil free xp.

This way the players that missed out can get one.

The players that ground hard to get it first time around still have the original unmodified version.

WG doesn't have to worry about another credit broken ship being released.

Keep the original Missouri as a rare in the Santa Crates/Supercontainers.

 

Seems like an easy solution.

I recall reading somewhere (so I could likely be wrong) the "problem" with Missouri wasn't the credit earning potential. It was the radar on a battleship. @Hapa_Fodder, can you confirm/deny on this?

The credit making potential on the boat is way more than any other boat.

As far as the radar goes - you have to be 9 km away and the boat is basically an Iowa.  Iowa's generally shouldn't be trying to brawl anyone.

Go behind an Island and hit radar for the team. If you are using the radar for yourself you are using the ship the wrong way.

This LOL

Yeah at the time she was the only tier IX premium and we goofed the numbers for her a bit, so she created issues. That is why she's not for sale anymore

No.  I don't know I would spend 2,000,000 fxp on any ship.

What about if you had 15M FXP and nothing to spend it on?

She's not my favorite ship in game. I struggle with the USN shell flight time, but she ain't overrated when it comes to printing silver!

Granted other premiums do very well if you play them well, but need 1 mil silver in 1 game. Might Mo delievers

I haven't used mine in a really long time. 

Same here. Radared and blew up a Benson with it I think? Last Random I played? (2-3 years ago?)

Otherwise, have just used it in Co-op to get x-flakes since then.

for the sole fact that, if you have a Missouri you never need to worry about credits ever again? i think that alone would make it worth it to some
