Nope.

Stras is just a  T7 Dunke but it's free, so there's that.

DoY ... guns too wonky unless it's free you'd better off with a T9 coal BB but isn't it a bit too early for that?

edit: The KGV, the tech tree equivalent for DoY is much better and it's free(technically).

Well, DoY is rather meh compared to KGV

  • Slower gun reload
  • No catapult to launch fighter/spotter

All she gains is hydro, not even the German hydro. And a bit better credit modifier.

It is also said that DoY boasts USN cruisers' ricochet angles for her AP shells.

Yes they have better AP than the contemporary British BB's but they shells are most of the time all over the place and the lengthier reload(compared to the KGV) compounds that problem.

DoY

Strasbourg looks really bad... But I haven't played her.

Also if you play enough over the next six weeks you can grind Stras for free I'm pretty sure (through the campaign).

Many people don't like Duke of York because KGV is good.

But Hydro on a T7 BB shouldn't be scoffed at, particularly one with RN HE...

But yes, accuracy is trollishly bad.

I'm just trying to make sure if Strasbourg is worth the long grind, and if Duke of York is actually worth the coal. Both of them should be eligible for the snowflake event, 750 coal each.

But then I put the last option, just to get the hint if keeping the coal to get the high tier ship is a better idea. Which is currently winning by a landslide.

Honestly if you don't have a good T9 premium yet, that should be your first goal.

They are the best credit earners in the game.

It's not really that long of a grind.

Just play normally as you should and you'd easily get the Strasbourg.

How fast you get it depends on your determination to the goal at hand.

DoY for coal? Save it for something better.

Well, unless you love to get the short end of the MM, or just a crazy Narai grinder; neither of them should be your main priority.

Although I'm inclined to believe Strasbourg is actually better than DoY. Her MBRB should be able to mitigate her weaknesses significantly when used properly, much like how Jean Bart fares at T9.
