Everything else but battle cruiser is not a great idea. I really want the Alaska Class Battlecruiser to be a tier 7 or 8 premium ship

 

Im sure these "battlecruisers" armed with more firepower and cannons, hope they made it on the premium :great:

Of all the ships you listed, only one really makes the cut for fleet battles - battlecruisers. Which are technically already present in the game (Kongou, Amagi).

 

Patrol Boats are not medics. Patrol Boats are...pretty much tiny coastal defence ships, carrying a bunch of machineguns, and maybe a single 5" gun. So no, I don't see why anyone would play that.

 

Submarines has been argued to death elsewhere on this forum. Suffice to say, no.

 

Oilers - perhaps for a convoy escort mode, but not sure why anyone would want to play one.

 

Seaplane tenders - no reason to have them in the game, really, apart from some sort of convoy escort mode.

 

Submarine tenders - same as above.

 

This isn't Kantai Collection - we don't really have a place for all these sorts of weird ships in the current confines of the game.

The Alaska-class a Tier 8? You're kidding, right?

Someone hates submarines.... :v

 

We don't hate submarines, it's just a stupid, pointless addition to the game since everything a WWII sub can do, an in-game destroyer can do better.

I still want the US battleship line to be:

 

CA-2D "Super Alaska" - tier 7

Lexington battlecruiser - tier 8

SoDak - tier 9

BB-65-2 tier 10

I like subs, but in this game they cannot work due to a myriad of factors.

 

All the other ships are also also unworkable here, with possible exception of battlecruiser. The oiler and 2 tenders are not combat craft. It would be like having jeeps in WoT

I'm glad no one mentioned having Akashi to repair your damaged ship. :hiding:

 

I want her floating in the damn port, not IN the match.

I doubt that it would survive in a tier 9 battle along with the Iowa and Taiho. 

 

She's a battlecruiser. She's not meant to withstand fast battleships.

 

She also has an AA suite comparable to a Baltimore.

A Tier X Preium CV should be there as well, this Fits the Enterprise as a Tier X Premium

 

Enterprise is before the Essex class so it will most likely be tier 8 or 9 instead of 10.

SoDak - tier 9

 

I found SD a bit embarrassing. It's Worse than the Iowa in many ways (Speed, Gun and AA, to a less extent it's FCS as well), yet it's better than the North Carolina (WAY better armor, Better AA) in many ways as well.

 

It is like a Tier 8.5 ship. Wonder how it would fit in.
