Usually I am not one to buy into leaks, but with the discussion surrounding Alaska right now I figured it was worth sharing @Mejash's post. 

 

The Alaska will find her way into the game, eventually. , That's all they know (or can share).

Bought with steel? Well, I guess I wont be getting her. Would be nice if she was a FXP bote.

Better be Tier 9 and not cost steel. A great many players have been waiting on this ship since beta and many threads have been made in the subject. I would figure the Haida crowd would jump behind her being in the game. I hope that this ship is put in as a free xp and not a steel ship.

If they thought the backlash over Alabama being for ST's only was bad just imagine the shite storm that will erupt if they try and make Alaska a limited ship for the few who have steel. Oh man will that get ugly and fast. IF they do that it will be one of their biggest mistakes yet from a PR perspective and also a financial one. Making it steel only means it is a ship the average player has no shot at and it also means they will lose tons of money (whether it be sold for cash or as a free xp ship that has people converting xp with doubloons). Just not a good idea at all. The more I see where they are going with coal and steel the less I like it.

Did what? Get them to introduce a ship so many want but in a manner most of those people won't be able to get it? Yeah, congrats to people on the NA forum. Way to go. You got your ship. Too bad you won't be able to play it. :Smile_smile:

If she is T10 prem she will have to be for steel, Also even if she is for steel only nothing is stopping you from getting the steel for her she isnt behind some sort of wall that only a few can get like the AlabamaST was going to be.

Except the only semi-reliable ways to get Steel that we know about so far (No, not counting on SCs) are Ranking out in the Saltfest that is Ranked Battles, or dealing with the slog/saltfest that is the T10 Clan Battles.

I'm pissed you can't get steel just from winning in ranked, but instead you have to achieve certain ranks in order to obtain it.

Whatever. The Alaska-class was a waste of time, money, and steel in WWII. Maybe she'll suffer the same fate in WoWS.

I don't see why she'd be tier 10 when she's virtually identical to the Krondsthad in so many ways that matter. She's clearly tier 9 material and the US no longer has a Tier 9 FXP bote since the Trump Wagon was removed. Alaska would fill that gap beautifully.

If it T9 then we can hope for Free XP. But T10? Steel WTH... Take me 3+ years to get enough playing randoms only.

Let's wait and see for more offical details before people freak out over a leak. All this stuff could radically change before she ever even hits early testing.

The only way things ever change with WarGaming is if people make a big enough noise about it.

This means absolutely nothing, really. Hopefully she eventually appears as a free XP ship, but that post doesn't confirm a single thing. Back to your regularly scheduled ranting.

Well, anyone can technically get coal from normal container drops and coal can be converted to steel so ... technically even a normal player could obtain enough coal to convert to steel to purchase her through the arsenal, but I suspect it would take an awful lot of coal to pull that off.  Of course the conversion may very well involve having to spend doubloons to make the coal-steel conversion like it is to convert free xp into normal xp (where you can actually use it) so it might end up being expensive as well.

I'm just glad it's going to be a 9/10 cruiser and not the ridiculous idea of having it as a tier 7 BB

And we been making noise for years!!! Prepair your biggest deepest ROAR girls and boys!!!! 

Bring Alaska to all ports in here...

Seriously though, if WG wants a t10 Alaska, they can take Guam. Due to photos She was going to have 3/50s instead of bofors. Guam would make a fantastic reward ship while Alaska belongs to the masses!!!!!

This is an apples and oranges comparison, more of a fart in the wind tbh.
