They will probably sell it in the shop during the Ranked season. They always release a wanted premium during Ranked. 

 

Btw, according to reddit, the information is coming from the developer who got deleted by a GZ in his Bismarck and abused his dev-status to get revenge on the CV player. So we will have to wait for the official patch notes today.

I’ve grinded like a [edited] to get the xp for this and am currently at 980,000*edited*

Why pimp the bloody thing so much over the past few months, getting CC’s to do previews etc if it’s release was not imminent? And all for the sake of seeing how the CV rework is accepted??

Given the interest of avoiding any balance issues with new ships, it makes sense to wait and see how the new carrier rework turns out before releasing a new, top-tier free xp cruiser. So while I sympathize with the feelings of those of you out there who eagerly await the USS Alaska, I believe this is a good decision by Wargaming.

 

If there is an actual decision by Wargaming. Was this information based on an official communiqué?

Seems reasonable. Launching semi-OP battlecruiser just at the new ranked season would be too much pay2win, right?

"Dear players!

American cruiser tier IХ Alaska is ready, will be available soon in game for 1 000 000 Free EXP."

 

So soon means more than 1 and a half months?

 

I think WG needs to use different wording here...

 

or they could just push back the CV rework, that way they get more time to balance it AND get the backlog of premiums out the door. Everybody would be happy

or you know it would reward playing the game and spending your FXP wisely?

Well, that CV re-work will be EPIC fail anyway... A planes in a surface based game... Why WeeGee do not add helicopters to WoTs?

Never happen. CV rework is the hill WG have chosen to die on.

 

Having watched a few videos on the rework recently, I'm not so sure that the rework will necessarily make the sky fall, but the primary objective of removing or reducing the skill gap will be failed spectacularly.

Those with 1.000.000 free XP on their account will curse this decision. Those with less, will say "yey, have more time to gather the free XP for it" :D.

Either the case is, what does it matter when it comes? Just play the game for fun, there are SO MANY fun ships in this game, why frustrate just for one ship?

Because some of us (probably you, too, with 9k battles) are close to having ground out everything, or have already, and want some new stuff.

To be fair, that GZ-player had a long history of chat-toxicity. That time the insulted (and deleted) the wrong guy.

I have heard other posters say much the same. It's a bit disheartening, to be honest. Is there anyone out there who actually believes the rework to be a step in the right direction? :Smile_amazed:

Guess what... Those who do not have 1 mil free xp will have time to get it even after release... Which is pending for 200 days... The entire CV rework nonsense was announced and delivered in less time.

And yet the onus was on the WG employee not to act like a complete douche canoe. He failed.

 

I'll wait for the patch notes. If there is no Alaska, then I'll spend the fXP on T9 DDs.

OK, that's a valid argument. For me, even though I have 9k battles, believe me, I am so low on some of the ship lines: on French an Japan lines I am so low, for example on the French line I am only at T6. Still, I am not starving to advance on those lines, since I have so many other ships in which I can really enjoy the game.
The reason for that, is because many times I decided to play the game for fun, not for "advance in this line". So many times I came to my PC and I said: I want to have some fun, and choose to play the ships I most enjoyed at that time.
When advancing through a line, there is no much fun, because it takes at least 10-20 games in a ship just to LEARN that ship, and those games are no fun for me. After you learn the ship, you see you have enough XP to get the next ship in line, then start again to learn the new ship, and so on.

Oh, I get that. I too play for fun, it's just that I advance when I can without sticking on any one ship too long. If I want to drop tiers I keep the ship I enjoyed, but I'm already onto the next one etc.

I really don't see how - if the ship is ready and has been balanced - it can affect the balance of an update which is pending for CVs and planes only. I mean surely the AA values are the only concern and these should have been dealt with?

 

I think they're so desperate for us all to play CVs (imagine 23,000 people all trying to get a CV game) that they want that to be the focus.

Having returned from a big break, I saved for and bought the Kronshtadt about 3 weeks ago before she vanished.  I've since regained about 240k free XP which is good progress I feel, but it will be a while before I'm Alaska ready.

It would make more sense to release a new cruiser at the same patch with the CV rework.... Just to add more cruisers in the MM which probably would be extremely CV heavy otherwise
