Because I decided that Sansoneti was worth more than my credit bank I'm now looking at purchasing one of these premium ships.

I've decided to list some pros and cons because I cannot make a choice between the two. Note that some of these are directly related to me.

Pros:     Georgia:                                                 Thunderer:                                                  Cons:          Georgia:                            Thunderer:

                -Fast, I mean VERY fast.                               -Disgustingly accurate with equally disgusting HE                 -  Exposed citadel                  -Has Conqueror's hull without the Portable Dockyard™

                -Premium instead of Special ship              -Has DFAA (not like it matters)                                                   -  Rather lightly armoured     -Is not a actual premium which effects economy

                -Likely to be removed soon™                       -I have a captain that can be used on her                                 -I do not have any US BB captains (or BBs for that matter)

                -Prints Credits                                                -Prints Achievements                                                                   -I am getting Siegfried soon™ so a premium may not be required

                -More enjoyable and unique playstyle       -More basic and reliable playstyle

 

This looked better when I was making it...

Both are fun ships in their own way.  In the end get what you reckon you will enjoy.

Why not both?

Seriously though, it depends on which playstyle you will enjoy more. Otherwise just get whichever BB you think you will grind their line first to use them as a captain trainer.

i'll say it again

 

if you are F2P and you don't already have another T9 prem, then get georgia, if you aren't then get thunderer because it's much more viable in "competitive" modes like ranked/CW which can make you rare resources, also it's so toxic that there's a good chance that WG will remove it from the game soon

Both are really good. But Georgia can be purchase directly via premium shop while Thunderer is available only via coal. So if you have the cash, feel free to go for both. buy the Georgia, exchange the Thunderer.

Have you ever played BB before? 
If so, you'll probably be the best Thunderer captain out there!

Ihave Thunder. Good buy. Strong against all kinds of ships. Only downside is slow shell speed - between NC and Iowa

Georgia is the one I plan to get next.

Faced this coal spending choice a little while ago and went for Georgia, was happy with it. I'm not the best BB skipper, but learning fast.

And have ground furiously to build up coal again and am 20k away from the Thunderer. :Smile_glasses:

Both are good.

I would, however, consider sitting on the coal for a bit, to see which ship WG decides to remove next.

I made the mistake early in the year to buy Thunderer before JB. Then JB got removed.

I have both but I enjoy the Thunderer best

Thunderer - for Rank / Clan  and when used right , you are not always sitting on the back line. Its a great shiip to get good at : meaning AP on broadsides. as you move in, mid game.

Georgia - i find can be a little trickier to get the best out and actually I play it mostly in Co-op where a good game can get me as much as 1/4 mil credits

I believe that for the same DMG, a T9 premium give 50 % more credits than a TX special ship : based on some posts in NA forums !

Plus I think the Thunderer will disappear first - no one is calling the Georgia OP.

If you look VERY closely at the coal counter you can see that there was reason I was asking which one to pick. Pick first that is.

Seeing the also as-desperate credit situation,

get Georgia first. She's as close to credit-printing Missouri, while also "fun"

In your case i highly recommend Georgia over Thunderer for your first buy. You need a fun credit printer, and Georgia is hella fun at that. Not saying Siegfried is bad, but German ships are plagued with being the manly nation. You know , all in and nothing between. And SEA do not forgive manly play , you will get blapped by a thousand wounds , possibly worse.

Georgia can play any role , and it has the speed to plug whatever hole your team need. Not to mention worthwhile AA to dissuade CV from killing you first thing. Versatility is pretty good.
Thunderer is alot more boring, laid back flinging shells from long range. It lack the portable dockyard of Conkek and also the necessary armor + HP pool to assume tanking role.

I find Thunderer is not a win game ship, but certainly a great support BB. Thunderer is not an AA ship, it has great AA sure , but not great enough to stop AP bombs from smashing you, whereas American BB in general are somewhat immune to AP bomb thanks to their armor layout.

Done and dusted, let's hope Thunderer doesn't escape my grasp as well.
