WELP. I guess this settles the debate of where to tier Alaska. I can't put into words how much against this I am.

But hey, WG never asked me for permission on anything.

That said, where can I get one?

According to them, yes. With 12inch guns.

Guess Alaska is just around the corner then, huh?

Oh, this is going down in flames for sure.

 

Who's, it remains to be seen. I gotta get a look at that armor scheme.

I don't even think that will be good - basically a Scharnhorst with no armour. Of course they will probably give the guns Yamato level penetration but still. It has battleship dispersion with cruiser armor and probably a citadel the size of a small island.

This ship was leaked about a year ago as a tier 8 premium battleship, but it was later written off as a fake. Apparently the ship actually exists and it's now a tier 9 "cruiser" that has more HP than an Iowa.

Don’t worry they will nerf it and make it a DD. Everything will be ok.

HP is based on tonnage - that ship is larger and barely more mobile.

Wow. This thing is just utter fantasy. Amazing for a 6 x 15" refit Scharnhorst knock-off with much worse armor can just "magically" become a downtiered Stalingrad. 

It's astonishing what you can do with naval planning when you never had a navy to begin with.

She was larger than Stalingrad.

She is not fantasy. She was laid down and her hull was completed. Fantasy would mean she either was never started or never even designed and WG made.

Well, that solves the Alaska debate once and for all.

 

Tier 9 premium cruiser Alaska is the future. I guess new Large/Battle Cruisers are just going to be counted as regular cruisers with absurd HP, instead of them doing the right thing and creating a specific new class designation for them.

oh so for the Soviets, a BATTLECRUISER becomes a cruiser huh?   On that Basis, I'll take 3 Invincible Class "CRUISERS" for the British Tree thanks and will happily see HMS Hood reclassified as a T8 "CRUISER".  At least it will stop the logjam of T7 British Battleships.

OK so close to taking a break time from this game.
