The release of the Mutsu is imminent. WG has authorized a lift of the NDA, so I have for you my first thoughts on this Tier 6 IJN Battleship. I was very excited for this. An IJN BB? What’s not to like? And it has torpedoes! Well… sadly the ship did not quite live up to my expectations. Especially when there are three other very good T6 BBs in the game (AZ, Warspite and Dunquerke). As it stands now, the Mutsu lags behind both in my opinion.
Now, to be fair, the Mutsu is going to get several buffs prior to release. I have not tested the ship with those buffs. Its turret rotation, rudders and reload are all getting buffed, so it very well could make the ship a good ship when released. Because of that, I am urging everyone to hold off on purchasing for a week or so. Don’t rush into it. Give a chance for reviews to trickle out post release, let the performance be reevaluated, and then make your decision.
There are certain things that won’t get buffed that still hold the ship back. Dispersion and armor. The ship is squishy and the dispersion is not that great.
Anyhow, Thanks for watching.
