It is not a good thing to grind through FDG at this moment IMHO.

Musashi , Missouris are all over the place and the sit back and kite meta of ASIA spells doom to it. You 4x2 will feel kinda lacking most of the time and your 2nd wont find work as the combat distance is too far part.

My best bet would be zig zagging between island and play tail behind a light cruiser or dd to scare off enemy dd. Die early but atleast you give your team cap bonus

I just finished my FdG grind - didn't do all that well for the 1st 10 or so battles, but picked up a bit after that. Unfortunately, the latter part of the grind coincided with the DoY, New Year and HSF campaigns and the bb numbers were a bit insane and my performance dropped again. Seeing as it's mostly up against t10s and only has 8 guns, I was happy to upgrade to the GK, retrain its captain and moor it permanently in port.

I went full secondary build with my FDG, including the reload module for secondaries, some might say its a silly thing to do, but it worked for me. Basically the dispersion can get really annoying at range, and even close up at times its questionable seeing you only have 8 guns. So just follow up the flotilla and be a little more reliable on your secondaries helping you out. 

Once i got to my GK i went for MBM3 over the SBM3 because having 12 guns means more shells to potentially hit your target.

Don't run secondary build. While they are the strongest secondaries in the game and can be scary, their damage/fires are limited. On top of that you have to get within 12km to use them. It would be far better if you specced for tankiness.

Currently im running  kinda pseudo tanky/secondary build :3

  • Main armanent modification 1
  • damge control modification 1
  • secondary modification 2 
  • steering gears modification 1
  • concealment modification 1 
  • main battery modification 3 

Seems OK to me atm

You should get main gun -7% dispersion mod , your main gun is still your most reliable source of income and the number 1 scary thing for most cruisers and destroyers.

the buffed 2nd range is nice , but if you can get close , you WILL close in into 10km in no time , the extra 1 km is not worth it. The dispersion buff will make gunnery a bit easier , and you have more chance to nail smaller ships, quite noticeable in fact

Old fritz play unlike Bismarck

in Maps with few covers and enemy with horrifying firepower, it kinda hard to approach enemy for close quarter 

you will be relying a lot of your main guns more than your Smaller guns, since she does not have much different in secondary armament compare to Bismarck, but far bigger guns
