My Weimar review:

Carbine Carlito is spot on with his review, although he does claim it was OP when in test and had a 1 second faster reload...for some reason.

Here are Mudfarts bits that CC's leave out:

To play Weimar, you're going to get very tired, exhausted type tired, because you need to put a large amount of energy and focus into each battle with this ship.

Weimar shines at end game, when your team is winning, and chasing those last enemy BBs to rear of map, if your team hasn't made it to this point in any given battle...well its a loss then, isn't it?, and your probably already dead.

Skill floor is high, skill ceiling is ALL LUCK, because you're going to need a perfect entire team to help carry you.

Weimar can't island camp, so strap on your adult diapers and get ready for some open water fighting (remember THAT???!?)....

Take faster engine acceleration and decel for sure (same as CC says), because it's pretty much your best defense.

now pretty much you're going to angle in towards the closest enemy, up to detected range of 11.5kms, prayers and sacrifices to your deity will protect you from being spotted by dd or planes, then kite away, and only THEN, can you start attacking ANYONE.

Oh great flying spaghetti monster in the sky....D'OH I'm dead already!.

Repeat this until your dead.

Is Weimar worth the $50 AUD?:

No.

-the focus and intense energy sapping power of this ship makes playing it exhausting

-there are more "fun" free tech tree ships to play, many, MANY MORE.

How many games will you get out of Weimar before you remove it from primary ships, and forget you even have one?

Maximum of 3... YEP 3x random battles for your $50 AUD.

Other ze German prem ships I have in port, that are much more "fun" that I also never play:

I'll start with Eric Lowenblowen, Munchen, Mainz, Prinz Eugen, Hipper (kinda prem got for free), tier 6 premium dd that was removed from store, Scharny, Biz, hell even Dudpitz, maybe a couple others.

Lets give it scores, coz well i gotta get SOMETHING for my $50 (0-10):

fun factor 3

value for money 1-2

ability to carry a team 0

skill floor 7

skill ceiling 3... WHAT DA F ...how does THAT work WG?.

Please share YOUR thoughts on Weimar below.

the biggest letdown of Tiger59 is its silly balistic i missed all the time and its damn sloooow. even Druid 127mm gun feels better than that.....

it should be fast firing accurate AP gun, instead of near miss slow shell.

Belfast 43 have atleast Torpedo and its gun exist.

 

Historical based, its should have airstrike armament as it used for flagship of communication

WG:

  • Take an existing ship, put new guns on it do some cosmetic changes and "viola" new $50 premium!
  • Take a tech tree ship make a new skin and sell it for $50(you still won't get a new ship aka Godzilla+Kong at least on console they get a new ship like the Warhammer collab)
  • Take a tech tree ship make a new skin sell it for $50-70(Warhammer ships + Pan Asian BBs + some AL ships)
  • Take a tech tree ship downtier it and presto new $40 premium.
  • Take a tech tree ship remove hull A and then in the next few patches it's now available as a premium ship kewl.

------------------------------------------------
I do admire the work and effort put into new ships premium or not with NEW MODELS (Ise, Tone) even if it's ugly (Kearsarge) and not just some colored skin.

Also love the work on the special skins like the one's on :

  • Halloween(Leviathan Monty+Octo Mogami+Banshee Shokaku ... etc)
  • Steam punk Halloween(Electric Tirpitz+Undead Bismarck ... etc)
  • Steam Punk(Scorpion Yammy+Kraken Alaska .... to name a few)
  • Space(Tech Republique, Tech Moskva ... and others)

This new approach that they are doing (pumping out premiums like it's the end of the world and nerfing them) is tiring out the wallets and making players wary.

Agree, they should make Premium ship UNIQUE in gameplay... not because OP ....

I WILL PAY MORE MONIES FOR T8 WEAKER MINO than spending on Tiger59.....

the problem is its lacking Torpedo.... the ship itself is quiet balanced.... IF ONLY THERE IS NO BB CHARGING toward you!

Tiger59 is ALSO SLOWER THAN its History counterpart at 31.5 knot....

 

WG should buff

1. its speed to Historycal accuracy

2. add Airstrike Armament..... if people not buying Tiger59, they will get nuked by it.

This should've been the case.
But as of lately game is leaning towards the Yearly Gacha gameplay where it tend to offer no-longer available premiums in a once in a year event.
Increase the number of pool of premium to decrease the probability of players to acquire the much wanted ships (Missouri+Krons+Imperator+ ....)

It is a total beast in Narai, from the streams I have seen it play, 300k to 600k games in Narai. 

What is this class culture going on? Co-Op and Operations players are Lepers? their enjoyment is irrelevant because it is not against real humans, who for the most part behave more like bots than bots in some instances?

Anyhow, I got Flint so I could play it in Operations, and I will get Weimar, when I can afford it to do the same.

What ever modes you play the game, I hope you find great people to share the experience.

There seems to be a lot of ships released that are poor to mediocre in random and ranked, and are hardly worth buying.

Yet these ships can usually take refuge in Co-Op or Operations, where they occasionally excel, or at least, where their shortcomings are downplayed, or do not matter.

You’d think that WG would put more effort into Operations in order to give these ships a home.

I rarely buy new ships, the few I do buy, I buy for operations. Even mediocre ships are fine to use in ops (with a decent team). However, with WG constantly ignoring operations, there seems little point in spending money on new ships.

Trust me WG, if you created new T8 operations, I would buy a lot more premium T8 ships.

I would like to see a T4/5 Operation like Jutland. That has a lot scope and with the new German BB line, the ships will be modelled. But yes a T8 operation is needed

From my buyers perspective, I want a premium ship that excels in human vs human combat, however I believe that sadly due to salty free to player tears, WG are only producing great premium ships for human vs bot game modes, which I don't play a lot of myself.

It's one way of avoiding the cries of "this game is pay to win!".....WAAAA WAAAA . yet wg need to MAKE MONEY SOMEHOW......but not off a free to player they won't......

I have hope that there are a few russian god tier premium ships due, I'm very much looking forward to the russian tier 8 premium cv. I reckon that's gonna dominate in randoms.

WG is really about pay to play, if you aren't gonna pay anything, then expect to be limited by tiers or game modes, extra time spent grinding etc etc.

I wanted to try weimar in narai, however was checking stats of munchen, and took that instead, coz its better.

I was tossing up between getting this and the Munchen.  Ended up getting the Munchen because it’s better in randoms due to the increased range and ability to fire over islands.

I’ve seen Weimars boss in Narai due to bots sailing broadside and the ability to dump 2x torpedo salvos per side, but the opportunity to do this is randoms is severely limited.

what ever you enjoy doing, find ships that suit your style and ability. Play to your strengths and have fun. Got Munchen and Weimar, they are there in the toolbox for me. Cannot play every ship, but enjoy certain ships that are so good in operations like Leander, Fiji, Flint, Graf Spee, Fuso, Perth and keen to expand the experience with others
