Azuma, Alaska, Ägir or Friesland ?

 

I compared the ships and had a close look at Ägir, but compared to Alaska, it seems to be inferior in nearly all aspects.

 

Alaska has more gun range, is more manoeuvrable, has better air defense, and seems to have much better armor too.

and it also has RADAR !

 

what's your opinion?

where should my 1 mio XP go?

Alaska.

 

Basically she is to powerful, she needs to be hit with a nerf, maybe strip the radar off her and Kron… as it stands now Alaska, she is better than all the other options.

(they said Alaska, too, which is the obvious answer if you intend to play it PVP/ randoms. I'm not sure I do, so Agir is quite interesting because there is more brawling in PVE).

Alaska - also because it might be the first to get removed (or Azuma, but Alaska is much more popular)

Nothing! Wait and see for what Slava and Emilio are going to be available for or just save for a better t10 free xp ship.

Not that I'm any good in any of them (that I have), but: Alaska!

  • Azuma: Yoshino is better, and Azuma doesn't get Alaska's radar.
  • Agir: is too new to have a firm view on (and I don't have her yet), but that means that Alaska is much more likely to get removed first.
  • Friesland: hilarious dakka, but the lack of torps severely limit her utility as a 'classic' DD.

FWIW in my capacity as a target, the one that induces most trepidation is certainly Alaska...

My view on Friesland is that lack of torps really hurt it.

Battleships can just charge your smoke. 
Daring will do smoke dakka  just as well but with torps and a heal.

I'm kinda sad though, why did they make Alaska so OP then?

 

Because it is not profitable to have a balanced game. OP ships needs to be clearly exposed ("difficult decision") to stimulate revenue.

Because it's the highest-tier battlecruiser in the game :Smile_trollface:

Alaska is a solid performer. I'm not sure I'd rate her as overpowered, but she is probably the best all-rounder of the available super cruisers. She's also the one most likely to be removed first. So if you don't have any of them from before, she's the safest bet. The others can be picked up later if you really want them.

Might not be to them, when the average player cant properly aim with Alaska due to the slow shells.

27mm bow/stern, same as Agir, can ricochet 380mm guns

36mm deck (unique), can ricochet any AP sent her way

citadel ends at waterline, Agir sticks out while Azuma/Yoshino ARE floating citadel on top of not having any reinforced bits, thus she is hardest to erase

American Piercing ricochet angles, which goes well with her "cruiser killer" role, but slowest shell velocity and thus penetration, relevant only when interacting with battleship grade armor. The best anti air (not that it stops air attacks), 10km Radar. Gun accuracy is worse than Azuma/Yoshino though.

 

If you've played Baltimore and Iowa, then Alaska is literally between them in most aspects.
