WG is seriously pumping out the premium ships as of late. I mean I had to look up Munchen because I forgot the name of the last German T7 premium light cruiser they introduced, now we get another.

Flood of premiums 😁
Before we get 1 premium per 6 months.
Now we get 6 premiums in as many months.

Throwing premiums as many as you can and as fast as you can, just like building a tower on the sand.

Result are München and Weimar, same concept with different gimmicks.

Funny there wasn't this thread created for Constellation release.

Step 1) create Massa, gimmick secondaries.

Step 2) announce removal of massa, huge sales increase.

Step 3) nerf secondaries.

Step 4) release NEW premium tier 8 USN BB but not massa with secondaries gimmick, but look sheeples, RADAR ON A BB, for tier 8 USN!.

Step 5) WG- DIDI MENTION TORPS!. *insert yuro rave*

My main concern here is, each new gimmick ship requires its own EVER SO SLIGHTLY different unique captains build.

So WG, we are back to square one, before captains skills rework EH?!!!?!?!!.

It's becoming ever so hard to remember which captain is built for which 4 classes of boat, or unlimited number of premiums per class......

NICE!!!

Weimar is completely inferior compared to Munchen. For some odd reasons, WG nerfed Weimar's gun range constantly throughout the testing phase although the ship was nowhere near being OP.

The similarities between the 2:

  • 38mm HE pen. Neither need IFHE.
  • Typical German cruiser torps. 6km range.
  • German Hydro.

But Weimar has:

  • 12 guns. Munchen only has 8.
  • Slower gun reload, 8 seconds. Munchen's is 5 seconds.
  • Slower base top speed, 31 knots. But with Engine Boost activated & Sierra Mike, Weimar's top speed can reach 37.2 knots (1.2 knots faster than Munchen).

Weimar's playstyle should be quite similar to Boise & NdJ, but without heal.

Personally speaking, Weimar is there to balance off the amount of decent premium ships WG released recently, by being made to be completely mediocre for competitive battles. And the fact it's a German ship makes it a perfect proof (translation: sacrificial lamb) that WG don't always release OP premium ships.

My experience with that ship? Big nope. Want a better German CL? Get Mainz. A T7 one? Munchen.

Helena is better, even in T7-9 battles as she actually has a bit more gun range & more utilities in her sleeve.

I would have liked Weimar for Narai.

But I have Scharnhorst, Munchen and Yorck.

So no real point, sadly.

All those torpedoes look super juicy though.

I hovered over the purchase button last night but its just not good enough to get a harpoon even in THIS whale.

Was thinking of picking up Munchen at one point, but with Weimar now I don't know.

No quite, since you can now build new captains from all the captains for other ship classes you have and run them on your premium.

So like, for my Atago, not only can I use my Myoko, Mogami, Ibuki or Zao captains that are built for their respective ships, but I can mint new ones from all my IJN DD and BB captains, too. So I can try out all the combinations I can think of. Ditto if I need a specialist secondary captain for Mass or Georgia, I can just send over my Gearing, Fletcher, or Baltimore/Cleveland people.

Honestly though, they come in and go out so quickly, it barely registers anymore. Then you come across something like Austin in battle and go "oh, wait ... what was that one again!?".

I grabbed Weimar - because it's German. It's made for Narai. So far with just 2 games in - it's a monster. The AP is very strong.

 

Make that 3 games now - it's a beast.
