Nearing decision point - doubloons for Anchorage?

I'll be completing all stages besides the 18th naturally and could get that with reasonable effort. I have 900 doubloons in the bank so it'll cost me ~ 10 bucks.

I can't find much in the way of reviews or gameplay of this ship. Any input on of if it is worthwhile?

I really haven't heard or read anything positive about the Anchorage. I have also not seen anything impressive or scary from them in game. 

Personally I think its a waste of time and resources unless you are specifically trying to collect all the ships.  If you are doing it for collecting then definitely get it , who knows if it will ever be available again and I bet that perma camo won't be back.

t8 premium for 10 bucks is a fair deal. I like the ship for what that's worth although it's not a world beater.

Took it out in COOP and had a blast.. no Randoms yet and I see very few there so I can't say.... It is good for Snowflakes at least so there's that too.

I’ve been having a decent time with it though my WL leaves something to be desired. Wish it had the super heavy shells- but I’ve been surprisingly pleased with it...

I finished out the last little bit for my Anchorage with doubloons. It's not that great. It plays like a T8 Omaha with smoke.

Is there a reason to play this instead of the Atago? Smoke vs heal + better guns.

I got it but I haven't really played it much yet.  At $10, if I needed a US T8 premium cruiser, I would grab it for sure.  Even if it's not the best, it certainly isn't going to get any cheaper.

It’s a weaker Buffalo with torps. Not bad, but there are players who complain about anything that isn’t a biasbote.

Ten bucks for a T8 premiums is a good deal.  The ship is certainly worth the daily win bonus and the camo alone is worth $10 IMO.

The ship has nothing to give, but the perks it has are somewhat interesting.

It´s as meh as most of the event ships.

I bought it to be sure NO SUPER CONTAINER will ever give it to me. The 3000 came with the Birthday gifts, so...

Well, pretty much all the US ships tend to be that way; nothing amazing, but nothing really bad either... (except maybe Squishita, and the new BBs.)

I actually tend to like the event ships so many hate; but I guess I’m weird that way.

Best reason of all.

Finally got Imerator Nickolai because the program got to that on the list of choices from a SC.

I got the Anchorage and like her.  Honestly I don't get why so many people think she is bad.   She is a Tier 9 Buffalo downtiered to Tier 8 and given smoke and torps.  She has a slight lower rate of fire the Buffalo and loses out on the Tier 9 upgrade slot but other than that she is a Tier 9 ship with smoke and torps to compensate for the slightly lower rate of fire and missing the upgrade slot.  In reality this makes her more of a Tier 8.5 when directly compared to the Tier 9 Buffalo...for $12 or the cost of what, a Tier 4 premium?

But she isn't blatantly OP so in everyone's eyes of course she sucks right?

Honestly it boggles my mind.

FWIW you're also getting 10k coal in addition to the Anchorage, and she'll be a T8 ship for snowflake events (i.e. 75 steel in a month, probably 5x dragon flags next anniversary) for as long as the game goes on.
