Need everyone's advice

I have been saving my free XP to get the Alaska and now I have enough but I am now wondering if there is a better way to use it. 

In preparation for the snowflake event I looked at which tech tree ships I had that were close to having enough ship XP to get the next ship.  I started grinding those ship as my goal is to maximize the number ships in port that qualify for rewards.

Now I have been thinking.  By my calculation, I could free XP three tier 10's (GKF, Nevski and Z-52) with my free XP instead of the Alaska.

My question is: Alaska or three bare tier 10 ships for the containers?

Thanks for your input

Regards

Whitecoat

I’d get Alaska and grind what you can between now and end of year. Also if Christmas patch is similar to last year you might even get an extra week or so of grind time to get the other tier x’s and the gifts

Never fxp a ship unless you absolutely hate it to the point that playing it is painful. You have 6+ weeks to the snow flake event, that's more than enough time to grind the ships.

Get alaska and grid the others. Or use fxp from playing Alaska to fxp the others. But really, play out what you can. You have a while before Christmas and even longer before those gifts expire.

I generally let them sit until "Its time" and not a moment before.

 

The Z-52 is a good DD, but not a Gearing in terms of firepower. US DD's can kill a German any time by gunfire. Which requires use of smoke for concealment and torps if needed to simply delete the Gearing etc.

The Alaska is on the back burner for me. Maybe at some point I will pick it up. After all a few million unconverted XP becomes a few more millioner given enough time. Ive no place to really use it all so I am careful and picky.

According to the DevBlog, clearing a snowflake from a tier 9 ships will give you steel, and a tier 10 will give you "Santa's Gift."  I might wait until you know what "Santa's Gift" means.  In the meantime, you can still grind out the three lines, and save your FXP to get Alaska when the time comes.

Don't decide now. Just keep hoarding it until you can make an informed decision. My personal opinion is that you should grind as many lines to Tier X as you can in anticipation of snowflakes and then use the spring and summer to grind FXP ships.

This. Grind away for the next 6 weeks and re-evaluate then.

Last year’s ‘Santa’s Gift’ was a regular base Santa’s gift container (the $1 ones that mostly just had signals and camos), so I’d assume it’s the same since every other snowflake reward is too.

So, three extra T10's will (probably) net you 3 additional $1 loot boxes.  Alaska is in the store for $77.

It depends on how much Alaska fits your playstyle. It plays 80% USN CA and 20% USN BB. From my experience, its armor is weak and unreliable at any angle. Its guns have more of a BB feel with relatively high alpha, long reload, and slow shell velocity. If that's not what you're looking for, get the Tier 10 ships.
