I have heard alot from this cruiser and its not really good... i heard it has replaced furutaka from the worst cruiser of all time(I am grinding to furutaka and i swear it doesnt suck, good damage albeit BB class reloading times. you need good aim for it to work properly)

 

so what are your thoughts of karlsruhe?

The Karlsruhe is an upgrade from the Kolberg, but that really is not saying much. Best thing about the Karlsruhe is when you sell it and get the Konigsberg.

Like everyone else I too hated this ship, but with over 30k average damage per battle (average being 13.2k) in her maybe I could give some advice on how to get throw her to the Konigsberg.

Best thing I found was love those islands, they are your friend and help you get close enough to the enemy (damn those short range guns). You just have to go hard at the enemy, you will most likely die, but at close range you can dish it out too, so get in close. :izmena:

Free exp'ed it when at about 5k exp. Terrible ship. It's outclassed by Phoenix and Kuma in just about every way but concealment.

the karlsruhe (no capital because it does not deserve the honour of one) is not just awful its Godawful the other Cruisers at tier 4 out class it in every way except maybe concealment but the difference there small to the point of non existence i am grinding it right now. i wouldn't say im a good player but i do get a few kills, with the karlsuck kills are few and far between even when i resort to poaching them

the ship sails like its sitting on a reef it hits like a bb gun and has worse armor than a tin can and worst of all its just not fun

The Karl is suckier even than the tier 2 chester - it's an embarrassment - still slightly better than the furutaka, at least the K can be effective in low tier matches and vrs DD's - the F---taka is useless full stop

Karlsruhe isnt a weak ship cuz ..

 

If you use it right you will kill someone

I actually had a good match with mine last night -

5 torp hits, 

3 kills, 

59 hits via the gun, 

 

That is literally the first time since getting this ship that I've performed anything worthwhile. Lets simply say it's only function in this world is to be an artificial reef
