I reset all commanders once, with over 300 ships I kind of regretted doing it. I’ll go through them and see if there’s a few that I want to reset.
i have WAY too many ships to a “reset all” gonna be a ship by ship basis
Just finished with the Puerto Rico. It’s a fun ship. Can take a lot of damage and hits hard. I have the Congress too. Just missing Alaska.
I finished the dockyard yesterday evening, played 4 games in the Puerto Rico and was very happy with my efforts. It’s a great ship, there is nothing I don’t like. Deffo worth the grind.
@SuperChickenLips did you quick it up with doubloons?
@SuperChickenLips how much does it cost if i do all dockyard missions
I have all 3 and Alaska out shines them all
@Dv H.badger Ranked favorite
While time consuming to respec, this is worth every penny, especially if you have a lot of ships. So many lower point commanders just get played out of meta spec simply because lower point commanders weren’t worth 500 doubloons to reset.
Dismounting modules is also free.
The Iowa class had so many barrels because they had built a ton to mount onto the 4 upcoming Montanas. When they were cancelled it was a happy accident that they had finished most of them. So rather than sending them in to re-rifle them, they could effectively hot-swap them in a couple of days whenever they needed maintenance.
Back in the 1980s, USS Iowa had an accident with one of the guns (It was mentioned in her naval legends episode). Did the Navy hotswap that then?
@MasterZ Pretty sure it screwed the breech too so it’s still broken. It’s Iowa’s middle cannon on her B turret. They could have, but before they fixed it, they mothballed her and museums probably can’t actually repair it.
Yup, just checked. They made it look the part, but sealed the turret after that. It was really bad. Killed 47 people.
If I remember correctly Battleship New Jersey has a fantastic episode on guns.
@Herr Haber Yeah. They actually have one of the spares from the class. You can climb through it if you’re brave enough. BB New Jersey does a great job at making stuff like this accessible to people.
The one of reason why CV gameplay is so hard was their autopilot…
I wish the commander skill respec was always free so that it would encourage people to experiment with builds more, instead of just going with the cookie cutter builds as always.
They gotta make money someway. But a free respec once a month and you can save up respec token would make a nice balance
@Duy Do wows console version has free skill spec 24/7 and the game is still rocking. Not a valid reason.
Or make it so skills are not must have or completely situational.
i agree, free respec token every once in a while 4/year perhaps (so if you happen to be on vacation that week you don’t miss out).
Man. Love that ship. And games like the one you showed us here are why. Will definatly buy it on BF.
Hands down. the most dangerous cursier in the game… that Alaska is a beast!
@BOBTHEBALL supership aside. You gotta admit the Alaska is a problem on the seas.
@Mr. Pillsbury It’s a good ship sure but it’s overrated cause of just how bad the other tier 9 tech tree and premium cruisers are.
I love the USS Alaska.
I’ve had lots of great games with her.
My last the other day was during one of those battles where we had to make a comeback and the good ol’ Alaska got me a Kraken and we won as well.
Oh yeh, if it looks like a Battlecruiser, smells like a Battlecruiser and tastes like a Battlecruiser then it’s a Battlecruiser.
With the free respec, it gave me the unique opportunity to whale to just about all the T10s I’ve been wanting to get done.
Alaska is not a “Battle Cruiser”. That definition classifies those ships that have the armament of a comparable Battle Ship but with much reduced armour & greater speed. The purpose of which was to outrun enemy battleships whilst catching & engaging enemy cruisers. Alaska is just a large heavy cruiser.
What makes a ship a battlecruiser is highly debated.
You can also move equipment for free as well as reset commander skills.
Indeed a good watch
Ok, I’ll admit I squealed a bit when I saw your last shot. Great match !
12″ guns weren’t battleship-caliber guns when the Alaskas were designed. Her contemporary battleships had 16″ guns. The US hadn’t fielded a 12″ gun on a battleship in 30+ years.
