Would you?

She just misses the t7 accuracy boost but she is still a German BB with good secondaries.

No I would not. It would be next to useless on that tier spread. Unless your base secondary range is close to 7 km or more,  secondary builds are waste of perks. Secondary range is the only factor that determines its viability.

In Co-op, maybe good enough. At least you can rely on bot "intellectuality" for having fun (or just get irritated).

In Random, I think it would be difficult (just don't). Accuracy and range of secondaries on Bayern are not enough.

Not worth it. You only get a 15% accuracy buff for 4 captain skill points, plus you give up the ability for your secondaries to fire on both sides.

Yeah. It's a bad idea.

I guess it's in the "things I would like to be true but just aren't" basket...

Same as Graf Spee, sure it has good secondaries for a cruiser but it's T6 anyway.

They are fun in Coop but otherwise can't be relied on.

Meh.

Just play T7+ for secondary builds I guess!

Well not like you should care, just go the build you want and try to make it work.

You know, builds don't work themselves, it's the players who make them meta.

Maybe it's a bit OOT, but since we talk about Kriegsmarine BB...

Since I got the Tirpitz B from the black friday box, I planned to turn the Tirpitz B into fully secondary spec. Meanwhile, I planned to convert my Bismarck into a normal battleship (main gun centric spec). The question, is that worth or good to build the Bismarck this way?

It’s good either way, although KM BB’s are well known for their inaccuracy at range. Any secondary build is fun on both. Lots of shells flying out at 11km’s is always a headache for DD’s (hours of fun in Co-op)...

Grinded out Bismarck with full secondary build. Was trying survival oriented build for first 10 games (CE, FP), it didn't do Jack shit. Then switched to (AFT, MSec) and worked wonderfully.
