This has probably been done to death, apologies.  I have enough FXP and credits to get either the Siegfried or the Agir and Friesland.  I’m not really a DD player but hey it could be fun. Question is, is Siegfried really worth the cost of two ships.  Hopefully those that have acquired the both can chime in.

Thanks

Honestly, it comes down to taste.

Do you want a battlecruiser (as, seriously, it checks every box) in the cruiser slot that would make BBs jealous of the accuracy? Siegfried.

Do you want a large cruiser that, personally, I'd just call a worse Alaska? Agir.

Do you want a DD that gives up torps to have heavy AA, dakkatastic guns and smoke? Friesland.

If you've ever wanted to do cruiser only missions using a silly accurate battlecruiser, Siegfried fills that niche. Agir, on the other hand, lost its only real gimmick, the fantastic secondaries. Friesland is a lovely ship if you ever thought it'd be cool to not have torps on a DD and instead have silly AA.

Personally? I'd say skip Agir either way. You can use the Fxp on something else down the line. Agir just makes me sad for what she could have been.

Thanks I appreciate the feedback, I was mostly leaning toward Siegfried but was balking at the cost.  I'll have to wait until the RB resets to get the x2 points and will be able to get her.

I understand. I wanted that silly dakka Shima, but 2m Fxp was just too much, so I get feeling a price tag is too high. In the end, I tend to consider how much I'll use a ship as to if it's worth it.

Still, you're welcome!

I'll chime in to say Ägir is far more resistant than Alaska. I've had more good matches with it than not.

It's a shame they stacked the big guns (with better dispersion to boot) and long range secondaries on Siegfried, though. I suppose they had to justify its painful research dungeon cost.

But then Ägir isn't exactly cheap, so... :cap_wander_2:
