Soon(tm) :Smile_hiding:

The MO event starts tomorrow.

She will be available immediately in random bundles.

She will be directly purchasable after completion of an ~2 week web campaign.

I can't wait for the complaints that are going to flood in when people realize what they have struggled through an entire campaign to be able to pay FULL price for, or gambled their actual $$ to acquire!  A worse Iowa (higher cit I believe for instance) that has been power crept over the years and had a Nerf hammer to its credit earning ability which was its specialty.  They are buying a port queen in all likely hood, hope they are getting it for the historical value they feel the pixels have. 

Someone start the popcorn, it should be in high demand also.  :cap_popcorn:  Just sit back and watch the fun.  :Smile_popcorn:

Its going to be somewhat embarrassing to play "old" Missouri, without any way to distinguish it from the mega-whale version. Why on earth couldn't they just sell the new ones with a slight change in the listed name?

Because they didn't want to.  I was proposing this from the time that they announced the rework.  They should have left pre-patch Missouri's credit modifiers alone and renamed it "Missouri (Old)" or "Missouri '50" (due to the Korean War livery), and sold the new ones as plain old "Missouri" or "Missouri '45".  They could have avoided the controversy, but this way, they kill two birds with one stone - dupe unsuspecting new players into spending small fortunes for pixels and remove MO's credit earnings.

He was removed at the same time Steven Seagall was replaced with John Doe. He was in the news at the time (and not in a good way) so WG decided to sever ties.

That's insane. Is it going to be like Johan de Witt where you have to buy chests in sequence for some bogus currency

Actually, the franchise contract used to get Steven Segal in the game expired... When it did expired, WG did not wanted to pay the man for his services... Therefor, WG HAD to take him out of the game or be liable.

Prices me out 

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE.

There is a web-based set of missions that you can complete and be able to purchase the Missouri at full price ($80?).  CASH.

You can even get it with doubloons if you complete the missions and go through Customer Support.

More interested in the Anniversary tokens and how readily available they will be just people who just play the game (or are willing to invest a few bucks).  The doubloons return for the V-VII boxes would more than pay for Missouri.

I have it. Do yourself a favour, dont waste $$ on it. It it a meh ship at best, it has SLIGHTLY better armour than an Iowa I believe, the radar is highly situational and you'll only get 2 shots off with it AT BEST. It, and other older ships, have suffered mightily under WG's powercreep.

I got the original Missouri for free XP.

If they had altered this one slightly and changed the name a tiny bit I would have bought it.

If no one did, there wouldn't be this thread, with a poster clearly stating his interest. I too am interested in seeing what the other components of the event and going to be given that I have the OG MO.

While I don't agree with the way WG is bringing it back.  It should just be directly sold or for FXP like it was when I got mine, I am sure many are going acquire it under the rather disagreeable method.
