So all those German BB look super good but the tier 7 and above looks like the best part, I think I am gonna have to buy some port slots because I WANT THEM ALL

Anything from tier 6 upwards looks decent. Am I right in thinking that the Bayern is similar to the Warspite?

 

I'm getting hyped about the Scharnhorst.

I took a look at Bayern's historical data but my thing is I don't like slow ships so I am not going to keep it. Fast BB ftw!

One of the reasons I bought the Yubari and doubloons bundle was to take advantage of the reduced price port slots.

 

I like to get the Gneisnau if I can work up to her.

Konig at tier 5 also looks nice.. And everything onwards.. But I kinda doubt tier 9 and tier 7. Gneisenau simply lack the firepower I think, while FDG has the fewest guns with longest reload, it can change however

The historical hype of these BB's is what is so appealing, all the BB's up to tier 5 saw battle at Jutland, and the Gneisenau + Bismark had legendary WW2 reputation, so pretty much all except the 9 and 10 would be potential keepers (those paper ships would be mighty expensive to keep and justify unless they had torpedoes :)

Gonna wait and see how exactly they'll perform in battle first, then decide later.

 

Probably won't be the tier3-4 or 7 though, cuz low tier CV seal club BB, and the Gneisenau has too few guns.

50mm at its thinnest which still gives a high chance to autobounce Yamato shells from ~10km away..

All or nothing scheme works wonder in real life, not in this game where you can kill a BB purely with superstructure fire, without even a single hull pen. :hiding:

I am beginning to suspect I can exploit the damage saturation mechanics with the all-or-nothin US armor sheme.....
