Player Opinion

Performance

The Myogi can be fun and it can be a nightmare. At stock, most people would not appreciate it at all. With a 13.9 km range and a top speed of 25.3 knots, it is still pretty decent for stock configuration. However the nightmare part comes because unlike the previous Kawachi or the US dreadnoughts, the Myogi is only equipped with 6 356mm guns arranged in three twin turrets with two turrets at the rear. With its stock range, the Myogi will easily be shot full of holes by anything before it can return fire. Not to mention, with only 6 guns and a slow reload, you can't really do anything once you missed but wait for the gruesome reload while getting peppered by enemy vessels. To add salt to the wound, the Myogi doesn't have any AA guns until her third hull upgrade, which means you can only evade the torpedo and bombs from aircraft or just pray your armor absorb the damage.

Once the time and effort had been spent to fully upgraded her however, the Myogi is a solid-performing tier 4 battleship. With a gun range of 18.6km or more if a scout plane is used, the only thing on the battle field she had to be worry about are any other fully upgraded elder sisters, since no any possible US dreadnought she face would have that range. Also equipped on her are powerful arrays of Anti Aircraft armaments, capable of holding her own against squads of enemy planes. If unfortunately the AA guns fail to perform its role, with her impressive top speed of 29 knots, she can get out of tight corners and trouble. While it is awful in the beginning, she is a valuable asset to the team once upgraded and can really become a powerful influence on the battlefield.

Pros:

  • Enormous range: with a gun range that is a staggering 18.6km fully upgraded, she out ranges all other ships other than other Japanese battleships
  • Powerful Anti-Aircraft suite: when upgraded with the C Hull, her AA output makes bomber formations risk heavy losses trying to drop their payloads.
  • Rearward-heavy turret placement: her one forward two back turret arrangement can be a nasty surprise for ships chasing her or sneaking up from behind
  • Heavy-caliber guns: with her 356mm guns, she has larger guns than the 305mm guns of her American tier counterpart Wyoming
  • High movement speed: She greatly outpaces lower tier battleships and American dreadnoughts and can keep them at distance, and can keep up with escorting cruisers
  • 356mm guns have the potential to destroy most cruisers with just a couple of broadsides

Cons:

  • Few main guns: with only 6 guns with a long reload and low accuracy, she is left vulnerable at closer range, especially to destroyers and DPM orientated cruisers
  • Wide shot dispersion: her few low accuracy main guns require careful aiming, and can be frustrating at the long ranges she fights at
  • Battlecruiser armor: while her armor can stop most cruiser shells, she is vulnerable to being penetrated by battleship-caliber weapons
  • Poor stock configuration: low range and no Anti-Aircraft armament when stock makes her vulnerable to other battleships and aircraft
  • Poor turning radius: she can run aground if you are not careful, and her large turning radius can make it difficult to evade torpedoes
  • Unique turret placement will severely reduce firepower if angling the ship bow on
  • Falls heavily when faced with large fleets.

Research

  • Since Myogi only has six guns with fairly long reload and poor armor, she can't afford to get in a close quarter fire fight with basically any other ship. With her stock speed still pretty decent for a battleship, you should first research the fire control system upgrade which can bring her range to 15.3km which enables her to fight at a distance most ship can't reach.
  • With speed still being less of a priority, given she is a battleship that excels in long range bombardment, research all her hulls first, the B hull gives you increased maneuverability and increases gun range in the form of a scout aircraft, the following C hull gives her a powerful AA battery and her final gun range of 18.6km.
  • Finally research the engine to bring her to her top speed of 29 knots.
