  • Alaska?

So my BO is a level 50 and I have the Baltimore and I was wondering if the Alaska is
good and what guns I should use on it.

If you can AA, life is grand! FF-BB3 all get shared XP. Alaska was better than Nevada in
my opinion.

This is more than a year later...

The Alaska sucks. It's pretty much useless. The gun range is short, though they hit
fairly hard. The spread is worse. It can't carry enough armour to survive in GB.
Even in blitz rooms (non-hobbit) it get killed by CL2-3's and CA1's.

I decided to buy a P'cola and grind up enough to buy a Sevasti. I'm now grinding up
to lvl 70 in the Sevasti, because the AK/Guam is just terrible.

Part of the problem with the AK is that it's not a Battle Cruiser. Historcially, it was
designed as a Large Cruiser, and classified as such by the USN. It was never a BC.
It was designed to counter the Mogami/Myoko class CA's of the IJN...tonnage wise,
it's almost the size of a BC, but if you look at how it was armoured, it's clearly a
super CA (sort of like the German Panzerschiff) that could sink anything smaller and
out run anything larger. Even the 12" guns while pound for pound were better than
the US 14" guns, aren't up to European 15" or IJN equivalents. NF's classifying it as
a BC is a joke and really distorts what the USN intended to use it for.

Hood, Gnei and OPro II are Battlecruisers, too, and they aren't BB0.5s.."Battlecruiser" in
this game doesn't mean squat. I mean, an OPro II as a battlecruiser has more DP then
a North Carolina, which is a full-fledged battleship. How's that work? Oh well.

You know there's something wrong with Alaska when a CL2 can own it.

Alaska is one of those "fun" ships you go back to (to break the grind etc). At level,
you're pretty much food. Even with the vanilla setup using N's, I managed to sink BB5's
and rape CV's. Of course the BB12 patch helped. :p
