Hey guys, just had a great team battle using the Tier VI Nurnberg cruiser. My stats: XP = 2,740. Damage = 30,120 hp. Target hits = 124 hits. Ships Destroyed = 1 x Colorado, 1 x Fuso. Here's the best part; for most of the battle, i was slugging it out with just 4,362 HP. During this time, I supported two of my battleship teammates, and managed to finish of 2 battleships from less than 12 km away, without being sunk. The only significant hits were one which knocked out one of my turrets (soon repaired) and another that reduced my health to around 3,500 HP. And yet I did not die! This was despite being within 12-14 km of three battleships, all of them facing my way.
Too bad WG decided to nerf the Nurnberg - now a one hit wonder for cleveland and any other BB Had one match where 3 devasting strikes hit at same time and other matches detonated by one shot wonders from 20Km away Too bad it has become a floating bomb - was a good ship before 5.2 hit box for magazine must be whole ship and only ever receive heavy damage hits so sad
So far I have 35 battles in the Nürnburg. Not that many battles but I think enough to draw a general opinion on the ship. So we begin... the mighty NERFEDBERG! After using the Königsberg, (which is an alright ship) I unlocked the Nurnburg and not to much surprise its pretty much a reskin of the Königsberg. Expect you will be seeing Tier 7-8 ships in roughly 80-90 percent of your games. Overall HE as we all know on the german ships is useless. But we got high dmg ap right! Yes and no, against cruisers at under 13km giving broadside sure you can citadel Otherwise its useless to. You can do serious dmg to BBs at close range but that brings me to my next point. The armor and hit points. The armor is so weak even a DD can pen your citadel (AND the citadel runs almost the entire length of the ship). It's only 50mm thick. It's hitpoints with the stock hull is 23k and you will see t8 ships! So no armor, medicore guns, what about its long range man? Well while in tier 6-5 games the range is just fine since you see t7-8 so often you have just as much range as other cruisers, and of course are outranged by BBs. You often can't get closer to engage because of the weak armor and huge citadel, and angling doesn't help due to the armor being so thin... So speed and turning? Both crap as well. The speed is quite average and slower than Jap and US cruisers, and it's turning is worse. Not even going to talk about AA and rudder shift. Overall this ship is lacking I'd like to see some love for this german cruiser and all the german cruisers in general. Before you show me your awesome games in this ship and tell me I'm wrong let me tell you that It hasn't all been bumpy sailing this ship but its certainly painful and I can't wait to get rid of her!
