  1. So there was a lot of conjecture, and or wondering back in the first year of this game weather or not there was going to be a branch for Battle Cruisers. This seemed to be a tier and balance issue. It stemmed from the concept in reality that Battle Cruisers in real life could not hold their own against Battleships. This was made somewhat apparent at the Battle of Jutland during WW1. Also on Paper the Battle Cruiser may be equal to the Battleship with firepower, but a fight would only be in the advantage of the Battle Cruiser if it could land shots to the Battleship without receiving them. I was a little surprised then when they put Scharnhorst in the Battleship tree at Tier 7. It did make sense that it didn't belong in the cruiser tree and or if it would have ben put in their it should have been a T10. This would have been problematic if the other countries didn't really have anything to match it. I thought of Alaska, and B65 right off the bat though as comparable rivals. Russia and Great Briton though would have to have made up designs though if you wanted to keep the fair/game country rivalry thing going. So other than Alaska having slightly weaker armor than Scharnhorst, they are very comparable ships in firepower and set up. The Alaska had better radar, but this was due to when it was designed and built. If Alaska had been built and launched at the same time as the Scharnhorst then they would be in a sense an American Scharnhorst with the German ship only being a bit better in armor, and possibly a bit weaker in the 11.9 inch gun as compared to the American 12 inch gun. I think Alaska should be a premium T7 Battleship, and or move Sharny and Gnies to the T9 alt German Cruisers. Or maybe look at the possibility of making a Armored/Battle Cruiser tree. I mean also Graf Spee and tier 6. Come on. Thoughts Ladies and Gentlemen?
