Spent my saved up free xp on the german cruisers. All I can say is lemons.

people laugh when you engage them and I mean even destroyers.

Can I get my free xp back under warranty. Currently have the admiral hipper.

first of all, admiral hipper is bad

second, that's what you get for skippping so much of the german line. i suggest go back to konigsberg and get used to their gameplay

German Cruisers are pretty good from the recieving end.  

 

They explode in delight!

 

Cough.

 

I've had mixed success with my Tier 2 German Cruiser. My dock is full of US and Japanese ships, so I really don't want to buy more slots. They can deal good damage against enemy DDs though.

People at NA would disagree with you...

i've had a much higher damage game with much better enemies, where every enemy drops their first targets and all aims at me while turning head on, not like that video where everybody was offering their broadside. honestly, i would like to believe most NA games aren't as lame as that one, SEA players sucks at knowing their roles and game objective, but most know how to handle their ship and survive, and it seems from that video it is the opposite for NA.

 

but anyway, that's just some "people at NA" like 5 players? and it's just my preference when comparing hipper to yorck and roon.

Something tells me its the player and not the ship thats causing the problem..

 

something tells you and what would that something be your over inflated opinion of yourself maybe.

Don't play the man we talking about the game and its content.

Summary:

  • Hermelin: No armour, no range, but excellent shells; a solid hit on a hull will be a non-citadel penetration, and citadels are easy to attain.
  • Dresden: Fun. Extremely high RoF. Bad shell arc, but still fun.
  • Kolberg: Same old, same old. At this tier, similarly tiered enemy cruisers will destroy you, to say nothing of battleships.
  • Karlsruhe: Was nicknamed the "Karlsuck" by the community. Wonder why...
  • Königsberg: Excellent range, excellent rate of fire, excellent AP shell characteristics. Very easy to aim. No armour, so don't get hit, but otherwise, she's gold.
  • Nuremberg: A better Königsberg. Faster RoF, more nimble.

 

All other ships, I've no (disclosable) idea.

Yeah...it's you and your own over-inflated opinion of yourself. Not the ship.

If you say that the ship is bad, but you are so entrenched in your belief that you won't listen to frankly better and more experienced players, is there really anything else that we can say on this topic? Even Steeltrap could concede when he sees he can't win.

 

German cruisers aren't bad. Quite the contrary.

 

and you can crawl back into whatever hole you came from.

 

...and YOU can crawl back under the shell you came from.

Those flat sides.... can I have more of those players here please... :hiding:

You can see how Hipper can performs in a match with decent numbers of CA who kept showing their yummy sides and how Hipper able to annoyed battleship with her AP. And charging DDs, yes please.

I think op should consider his own performances also, you can look at Decide's Hipper stats or even mine (Decide's best game is much better than mine), Hipper's much worst than her counterparts but she can still shines if you know what you are doing.

IKR. no wonder NA people can maintain such huge avg. damage/game stats. while here, people prioritize survival above everything else and such most? players have become quite adept in evasion(one good thing in SEA). I've also noticed people here loves targeting german cruisers, even if they have a much easier to kill target.  I've been watching youtubers on NA and I can say NA server is like the easy mode. (IDK about RU and EU though)

can confirm, my Yorck had 1150 HP left and I had 5 ships shooting at me with the rest of my team shooting back at them. I played zigzag hardcore edition with them for about 5minutes.

 

I died but my team won because 5 ships decided they all wanted me dead because oh deer a Yorck, better kill that instead of the 2 Tirpitz 1 Atago and 2 NC's also shooting me!

Happily I rarely have to concede anything as I do my best never to take positions contrary to clearly available evidence such as a ship's relative performance. 

 

What's more, I'm not up myself or fragile to the point I'm not prepared to change my opinion should it seem warranted. It's never been a case of 'winning' for me, nor is 'face' a thing.

 

Indeed, not being prepared to alter a position in the face of evidence/a convincing argument is typically a trait of the immature, the insecure or the ideologue (most commonly religious but not exclusively), and I'm none of those.

 

Thanks for inviting me to the discussion.

IKR. No wonders about a good NA players can rack up their stats so high. If these people (on the carry hipper vid) are considered average, it would be less pain to play German CAs on NA. 

 

Yes, I can confirm that in my Yorck, Hipper, Roon almost every match. Couple of days ago, I was escorting friendly BBs (NC's and Tirpitz's) in my Roon, although I was pushing a couples of km's behind those BBs, the enemy CAs and BBs even soviet DD just focused on my Roon with HE. Maybe it's still those "new ship syndrome"?

either that new ship syndrome, or they just want to an easy target--a soft, large slow target.

 

just had a funny game. I had a stupid team but rather than get angry, I got intrigued about the enemy team's actions.

Northern lights map, far west side 3 tirpitz 1 izumo and 1 kagero was fighting my teammate izumo and amagi. amagi about to die and turned away, 8km from the nearest enemy tirpitz. my ally izumo turn full broadside and turned full offensive, around 12 km away from the nearest enemy tirpitz. I turned around to help and started to fire at 18 km to my surprise everybody, all 4 battleships, starting shooting at me and completely forgotten the dying amagi and the izumo firing at them. I turned around and they started to follow me. RNG guided their shots and keeps on getting my cits even from my stern. even the kagero started shooting at me until I'm almost at the eastern part and the enemy cruisers and ussr dds there started firing at me too in complete disregard of my allies there. in just 3 minutes I died and my team ran away watching me die first blood. after 5 minutes, we lost our base and most of the team ran away. it was a very interesting game, should have deserved a saved replay.
