The German battleships were shaping up to be fun, interesting additions to the game. Recent news, however, has shed light on an aspect that severely cripples their role in our game:

 

You have to play the Kolberg again to unlock the branch...

Kolberg's make a satisfying crunch when I broadside them in my T3 BB, had one last night that completely underestimated the power of the t3 bb's ap shells... and what 3 citadels will do to it. :teethhappy: It was even more amusing because It was two kolbergs attacking from both sides.

so to honor the two now very sunken Kolbergs and the salty tears they shed in chat

Yeah thankful I've already sailed through that floating citadel.

 

but he's saying you will have to do it again to save some xp to switch to ze german bb tree.

 

I have a box of tissues on standby.

if youve played the Kolberg at all you would have the xp to go straight up the  line it should only take a handful of battles.

There are worse ships out there than the Kolberg like the Kransy Krym.

No problem for me, I'm in the Yorck in that line. My only agony is that to level German BB starting from Nassau aka "German Kawachi" and Kaiser, another Kawachi with less 1 turret.

No I don't. :) I'll never have to use that ship again. I could start off with the Bismarck the moment they release it. :P

Just had a game in the Kolberg today, It's not as good as the St.Louis but It's still a Billion times better than the Karlsruhe which i truly hated. So you only need 3K Exp to get the T3 German BB which is only a few games, should be very easy to handle.

I've got over a million xp ready to convert, but I'd rather play the "wait and see" card, as I have for the last several premium ships which by all reports are meh.

When I hear how good or bad the tier 10 is, I'll either go ze germans, or for Yamato.

 

Of most interest is how good the upgraded guns on the bismarck will be, as a free to play ship can only be slightly better than the premium one. It's already a dudpitz...I'll laugh hard if bismarck puts it to shame.
