Okay so I was trying to find information for this online before I asked on the forums but I'd like to know of a general estimate of alaska's release date would be? I understand it's in testing and those things take awhile to work out all the kinks but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask! Afterall I need to know when she releases so I can spend money converting free XP to her if she is a free XP ship errr I mean tactically relocate the funds in my wallet.

Most estimates put it around December at the latest. And one tester let it slip that it will be a FXP ship rather than coal or steel, so 750k FXP...unless WG changes its mind before then.

didn't she start live testing in this current update by supertesters and etc?october might be a good month for her,december is highly unlikely.

I'm willing to bet she's our Christmas ship. Unless WG wants to push the Jean Bart then instead.

Just came here looking for the same info after seeing one in game. Didn't think to ask at the time, assumed I just missed the news on its release. Do super testers get ships on their main for a time or something?

 

 

Assume posting names(even if not shaming) is against ToS like most games so boxed everyone but myself out.

So far the free xp ships were revealed/teased 3-4 months before being released. With the Alaska being revealed in July, it can be expected to be released in Oct-Nov

Yep you'll run into one now and then. Was watching some of Notser's Alaska play this morning on Twitch. Right now at least he feels that both Alaska and Kronstadt are underpowered, and that Salem is actually a better premium cruiser than Alaska.

Great, thanks.:Smile_honoring: Not used to seeing ST/up-coming ships on the main game. Was in the ST for WoT console and that was a separate server/client.

Was cool to see a tester ship just now - I am usually oblivious.

I snapped a few screens after I sunk. She was a little banged-up by this point.

Watched both Notser's and Mejash's gameplay videos on it.  Looks pretty decent overall, but at the same time, doesn't seem to have anything spectacular standing out either.  Her armor seemed decent, gunnery is your typical average American reliability, and seemed like she turned and accelerated pretty well despite her size.  My guess is that her true strong point - her AA - won't really be noticed until the carrier rework goes live.

Wonder if it will be like Musashi - FXP and Coal?

I've seen Alaska twice in the last 2 days. My guess is, after seeing Alaska being tested, that she may be released as early as the patch following 7.9 which would be in October.

I'd expect Jean Bart to come out first, unless they offer both up at the same time.

That's good enough for me. Im not super big into gimmicks I just like some decent ships! If she plays anything like typical US cruisers I'll enjoy her :)
