Adm_Ballsey posted a topic in CruisersHello once again everyone, Finally we get our hands on the USS Alaska and my first impression is that this ship is incredibly strong. I included my full build including ship upgrades and captain skills including highlights from my very first game in the USS Alaska I hope you all enjoy my latest episode of my How to play series featuring the World of Warships Premium Battlecruiser USS Alaska plus Wows Review Guide
With the upcoming Stalingrad and especially relevant Kronshtadt I want to revisit Alaska and later some other Super crusiers/Large Cruisers/Cruiser killers/battlecruisers that are applicable to this new archtype WG is coming with. Previously it has been very unclear whether Alaska would be a BB, a CA or given special treatment. As Kronshtadt would indicate, these ships will get special treatment as a hybrid between the BB and Cruiser in gameplay terms. Getting a little and losing a little compared to both standard ship types. Hull, Survivability and Armor Main armament Secondary and anti aircraft armaments Maneuverability Concealment Some notes, I opted to give Alaska the USN BB damage control party, as I think it would help differentiate Alaska from the tech tree cruisers, but also from the other Large Cruisers of this ship archtype. The stats are a mix of historical data, gameplay data from existing ships and compromises between US CAs and BBs mostly Baltimore and Iowa as they are the closest ingame contemporaries from the same nation and what authors usually use to compare Alaska in litterature. All stats are double checked and compared to Kronshtadt for balance. In this state I think Alaska strikes a good balance between heavy cruiser and battleship, is balanced vs. its current ingame rival Kronshtadt and most importantly has a lot of national flavour from USN tech trees.
