i have reach bayern now, at stock this ship is just horrendous, poor range poor aa..cv send plane im dead going near im dead..worst still keep getting into T8 match..what a nightmare

 

16.5K for hull upgrade, im like only 10K now after some frustration grind..its really frustrating

 

i know some will say use free xp but im saving mine up for ships like in T8

 

why upgrades is not break into parts..this make the grind a little easier..but i guess is a "business" decision to make us buy premium and DB

Yes its painful but it will be done in a few matches.. Good news is the bad stock grind on German BBs afterwards aren't bad at all compared to stock IJN/US BB hulls.

Stock Gneisenau has the same gun, range, armor as the upgraded one, and it actually has better secondaries for setting fires on ship. Same goes for the Bismarck, you don't even feel like you're driving a stock ship.

For comparison, just look at stock Fuso/Nagato/Amagi.

I've actually thought the German BB stock ships were better than the US stock hulls, still not great but they could be worse.

If you thought the German BBs stock are bad, wait till you play the IJN and USN BBs

 

Although they don't have Catapult Equipment (for tiers V-VI) they're still good in busting other ships

Would be more cooler if they have Catapult Fighters consumable Starting at Konig (He 51)

and then Bayern (With the Arado Ar 197)

WOWs & WOT are basically following the CRPG model which is about keeping everyone playing as long as possible using small rewards for building up experience.

Hopefully playing and gaining experience will make to a 'better player' and hook you into the game for an extended period. 

Even so some ship are simply awful at first and some higher Tier ships are a total disappointment after the previous one when you first buy them.

 

Besides just imagine if everyone stated in the equivalent of a T10 ship or had to buy a premium ship to play.

We all been through stock grind, it'll be over when you got the elite upgrade.

But even with elite hull upgrade, we can't deny the fact BB still being targeted by carriers. My Fusou & New Mexico (both elite hull) still being swarmed by CVs. No exceptions. :P

I get what you have said, when you are playing for example you have stock Bayern it will be easy when MM keeps you in a same tier as your ship T6 or T7 it will be playable but when you get 9 out of 10 matches as T8 games then it will be hard for even a pro player to grind through stock ship and get it fully upgraded 

 

But we're talking about a company here which has to earn profits, so lol they have to put you in a position where it feels hard to earn xp easily and to earn xp you have to buy premium or DB. Which will help the company to keep servers running

Just as much 'fun' is a brand new basic Kirov - BB size, everyone can see you, no armour, gigantic turning circle. CVs love it.
