Captain Rework and Alaska

Quick question to those that have the Alaska and understand the changes to the Captain skill points.

I was looking to get the Alaska before she is removed, but then wondered whether spending my Free XP was worth it?

Will I get that usual 'Yay, got something good', before delivery of the swift kick to the nether regions I usually experience?* :cap_happy:

 

(*My one ship from a SC container in 3 years was the Atlanta, just before the AA and IFHE changes :Smile_teethhappy:).

That depends on how you play cruisers and ehat Alaska means to you. WG could buff her after removal since people shelled out +~100 bucks for her. Also last time something like that happened, Kutazov to Albany recieved Range and RoF buffs.

Personally it's up to you. But yet again, I d

Usually don't play Alaska with fire prevention. Otherwise:

The FXP has just accumulated so isn't costing me anything (except for the time playing and most of the time that is enjoyable). I considered getting Hayate before WG put the 2 million price on it, but as I have the other 2 IJN DDs at Tier X I really didn't see the point of something that sits in the middle.

I was looking at both the Alaska and Agir, but remember reading something about the rework affecting the Bigger Cruisers, so wanted to check.

 

Thank you for your input :Smile_honoring:

I have high hopes that WG will tweak the captain skills to show some love for cruisers. This is still a little early. Get Alaska.

I guess as the FXP is just sitting there I might as well, even if it is a crap ship after the changes it will be one ship less that I won't get if I ever win a ship in a container again lol.

Oh, unless I get the Alaska B!

Alaska and the other high tier large cruisers are going to suffer from losing Fire Prevention and similar "battleship" survival skills with the current direction of the skills rework but I think it'll still be a very strong ship.

Do you have any supercruiser? If so, you can test the survivability change at once. In case you don't have any high tier American premium cruiser, then I recommend getting her. God knows when are we gonna get another US cruiser at tier 9.

Don't put much hope into it. Of all the changes, this (alongside BFT+AFT absence) seems like one of the changes tha will come through even if they don't change anything else. WG decided to raise supercruiser's firepower with captain skills and nerf their survivability, and in a Q&A session they specified those changes were a compensation for what they are going to lose.

Many thanks to all, I'll end up getting it and hoping for the best -sad that getting a new ship makes me feel that way nowadays.

Merry Christmas all; stay safe. :cap_happy:

Losing fire prevention for the super cruisers will be painful as they already 'burn like battleships'. 

All they need now is some other global adjustment nerf.
