I think cruiser Alaska would make an interesting premium. She'd be difficult to wedge into a tech tree.

This is a common topic of discussion, which if you searched the forums, you'd find many threads on the topic.

The problem that Alaska poses is that it's overly large to be a normal cruiser, but OTOH, it's nowhere near well armored enough to be called a BB without putting at much too low a tier.  if it was typed a BB, it would have to be as such a low tier that it wouldn't face its contemporaneous competitors, which IMO would ruin its inclusion in the game.  The Alaska should be at a tier where it would face its historical competitors, which would probably make it something like a tier 10 cruiser.

The amount of conversation about her is staggering. With many people having many different opinions on how she should be implemented.

Rather than say something ... unhelpful, let me say instead that the SEARCH function can be your friend.

I think she'd be similar to the Graf Spee in terms of implementation. Cruiser with a heal that performs and handles like a battleship, minus the durability and armor protection of one.
