I'm getting close now.

I have Russian Alex. I could start building him up on my Lenin.

I have read up on both ships. I guess I'm more interested in a credit earner.

I have practically no Russian ships at all and no IJN BBs. (But some investment in each tech trees).

I'm guessing captain skills for Russian DD CA overlap which leans me towards Alex/Kron.

I know the answer is probably "whatever you are best at" and in that case I would lean to Kron.

Neither imo, wait for Alaska, assuming it's a Free XP ship.

I have Musashi from Coal and was planning to get Krons with my freeXP, until I heard about Alaska 🤩

That's the thing.  No one knows what it will be.  FXP, Coal, Steel. Reward.  WHo knows?

No way to know, we're really just speculating based on previous Tier IX Premiums which have all been Free XP ships in the past.

Alaska? Jean Bart? Whatever it might be, I am back to 750k again... And that's after getting Missouri/Musashi/Kronshtadt/Nelson 😄

Another 30K FXP and I'm ready as well.

I personally don’t like either much, but I have not played them much and I don’t play many T9 ships, so take that as my personal opinion.

Kronshtadt “feels” more like a fast battleship, but her 305mm main guns and armour feel like cuiser in T9 or T10 games.

Kronshtadt at T9 has some similarities with Scharnhorst at T7 (small callibre guns compared to other BB), Graf speed (large calibre guns compared to other cruisers) or Kongo at T5 (faster but weaker armour compared to other BB’s).

Personally I prefer scenarios for making credits. I’m also not too sure if there is a notable difference as a credit earner, comparing a premium and a similar tech tree ship with a permanent camo.

I’m very low on credits now, my 60 million credits melted after unlocking Dmitri Domskoi and RN DD’s up to T9 recently.

I'm trying to hedge my bets for Jean Bart. Hope I've got enough. If it goes for steel ill be very sad.

Kron is worth playing but not as op as Musashi in T9

Kronshtadt has a nearly 3% higher win rate than Musashi.  They're both pretty OP though, just Kronk is more so.

To the OP, if your only concern is credits, Musashi will do more damage, and thus earn more credits.  Kronk will win more, but winning doesn't affect credit income.

Having said that, Musashi is incredibly boring to play, and Kronk is great fun.  That's subjective of course, but imo there is no contest between the two.  I've got 2.4m free xp, and would never even consider buying the Musashi, since I have no desire to play such a static ship.

I would not take the Krons though. It certainly can strongarm anything smaller than itself if not for the server hype for 460mm Emperor super punch. The server BB population is still large , and those with 16 inches + have no problem forcing you into your rightful place. It is , like similar ships , is a specialized bully. You face anyone else and you are toasted.

Actually the DD and CL skills don't really overlap with the Kron.

The Russian cruisers, with the exception of Moskva and maybe the Domskoi, need IFHE if you want to unlock their full potential. The Kron doesn't. 

And the DDs, being gunboats, also need skills like AFT, BFT, SE, DE, etc to shine, while Kron doesn't really need those. AFT can be useful, though Kron's AA is not very good to begin with.

My suggestion would be to wait for Alaska, Jean Bart, and that upcoming T10 French BB before making a decision.

But if you absolutely must buy one of the two, my suggestion would be Musashi.

Imo the Musashi can be quite OP. Also, since the Musashi plays similar to Yamato, you can use the Musashi as a sort of test drive to see if you like the Yamato playstyle. If you don't, then you can save your time and effort by not grinding up the IJN BB line, or just stopping at Amagi at the most.
