I'm not too impressed with the game mode overall though.

Random T8-10 battle, but with 3 TXI BBs per side.

Because WG gave out free 21 point captains, every superBB is going to be running vigilence and radio location. Add in the fact that Hannover has hydro, and Hannover is about 4 times more popular than Satsuma for some reason, torp-based DDs are surprisingly weak (Asashio possibly excepted). Any heavy cruiser is more-or-less overmatch waiting to happen. Don't even think of showing up in a regular T8 or T9 BB. Smoke and DPM are the meta. Kitakaze rules, Freisland, pretty much any ship with high DPM and smoke (Smolensk) or at least high DPM (Worc) are going to have a great time. For everyone else, they'd have more fun in regular Randoms.

There is nothing special about those oversized things other than the fancy gimmicks, and the same overmatch capability of the big guns.

Strangely GK is better armored than Hannover. Hannover is covered by 50mm deck only on its midsection, while GK's 50mm deck also covers the area around the A & Y turrets.

Even the brawling capability between them are not that much different either. Aside from having the ability to overmatch BB's bow of course.

The mode is T9~10 and Super Battleships only.

I divisioned up, 4 wins out of 5 battles. We both took Kurfurst's and /or Hannover for the first 2 and both times we slowly pushed in together and let our secondaries melt and burn everyone who came in range (12.5km). The only defeat was when we 2 came against all 5 red BB's, and then we held them back the entire battle - while our other flank failed to deal with a DD and 3 cruisers.

Most of those 5 battles, the super BB's were on the bottom of the result screen (my div mate and myself managed top half results - nothing spectacular).

510mm guns overpen a lot more than the 483mm guns.

IMO, I love this so called Grand Battle. They provide a battle with some targets that very easy to shoot from long range, especially for a cruiser. My Ibuki are on "speed boosted" grind for Zao, she only need a few exp more. And I got another bunch of T.9 cruisers to grind. Never been so easy to pile up 100k+ damage before.

I am really enjoying Grand Battles, but I understand the frustration at people playing a little back right now. I feel like some of that is a growing pain of people not knowing how to play with and against super battleships.

It's definitely a contributing factor, although I also think there's a lot of 'oooooooo new ship to shoot, I wanna sink it'.

I know that often these types of fun events are good testbeds but while I'm open to the gun buff idea (with a bit of work) I don't think Super BBs are a great idea for possible new ships in game.

They just have too much of BB weaknesses and bring in more 32mm overmatch, that I don't think is a good idea.

But interesting concept all the same and it was cool to see how these behemoths looked and felt to play.

When you finish the spot torpedoes mission in the Colorado grind in one game.

I've played 3 games now, 1 each in each big boy and once in the Roon. They have been very long range affairs.

My personal best result and of course the most pleasing battle in super battleships so far, also in the Hanover.

The player in Hanover on the opposite team emerged with an almost full health bar and shot at my battleship with her pathetically anemic HE shells even at point blank range against flat broadside, and set only one fire during the entire engagement against me.

(A later check shows that the profile of this player suggests that he/her hasn't ever fought 100 Random battles yet and the stats are just abysmal.)
