As far as I've known, Missouri a.k.a #63 was released as for WG to experiment whether players liked the idea of "buying" premium ships using Free XP.

Does anyone know whether WG is continuing to work with this idea, still assessing data or have abandoned it already. if they find this idea a good one, are there any ships that are planned to be released this way?

They have no plans for now regarding free exp super ships or anything similar.

Musashi is also one of the hottest candidate for a free exp ship

Concurrently, if the playerbase whine hard enough , a new free exp based ship will be put in

top secret

I suspect she will have the original config (that extra 2 155m turrets and less AA).

Remember it will meet Tier 7s.

Musashi 1942 <<Yamato 1944

beside WG wont produce TX premium, best place is T9

with Musashi 1942, Haifuri collab can go further --> HSF Musashi

Nevertheless, the idea of having 18 inch gun in Tier 9 really bothers me.

Missouri was ok as it basically is a Iowa with Radar (Meh, Big deal), but Mushashi @Tier 9? No I do not want that to happen.

 

And there is no "Rule" in WG. WG said they won't touch Premiums. WG said we will have unified gold. WG said many things.

I don't think 18 inches in T9 will matter that much. You are looking at 50-100 mm worth of extra penetration at further than 10km over the Izumo. The only ship that will really be screwed is the Myoko since her 32mm weather deck will be overmatched. The rest of the T7 ships will be overmatched and screwed by other T9 BBs anyway.

 

So, give the Musashi a "gimped" 1.7-1.9 sigma (from Yamato's 2.1) and 1.7 ROF (from Yamato's 2.0) and call it a day (plus the already crap AA and her familial glacial-slow turret traverse) then she might be balanced.

I am hoping for an HSF Musashi at Tier 9. That way WG can balance her by giving her worse AP shells or whatever they want since it is a semi-fictional ship. Can just say they are "training shells" or something.
