Shrayes_Bhagavatula posted a topic in General Game DiscussionSuper Smackdown Season 1, Vol.1 Tier: V Class: Cruiser Ships: The Frenchie Rat Rod Roadster versus Wilhelmshaven's Omaha Smasher. *Takes Breath*. OK This is the first ever article that I am writing on this forum. Feel free to comment on this after you have read it through ( assuming the people here have any patience to begin with...). So then. Allow me to set the stage. One night, I was fast ( read - half ) asleep in a rather awkwardly situated bed, in an awkwardly situated room, in an awkwardly situated apartment, in a building that vaguely reminded me of an upside down cheese grater. Before I had gone to my musings, I had spent some time, browsing the various articles on this very forum. As it had happened, I stumbled upon @LittleWhiteMouse and her ( his? ) articles detailing the various premium ships that had found a place in this wondrous game. As I thought to myself, I wondered... could I perhaps achieve greatness? Then it hit me, like a bolt from the great blue ocean ( or one of Bismarck's stray secondary shells - you know how tempermental those things can be ). I could do such a thing, and so, this great idea of having Super Smackdown as a forum page came to life... in this first Volume. I hope you all enjoy, please do leave a comment if you so desire. AND NOW, THE MOMENT YOU"VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR.... IT'S SUPER SMACKDOWN!!! (applause) Allow me to introduce to you, our two contenders in tonight's smackdown In the Blue corner... What's that... Its a bird, it's a plane, NO!, It's France's very own Tier 5 Rat Rod Roadster, Monsieur Cruisin' in for a Bruisin' ! Ladies and Gents, please welcome... Emile Bertin!!! And in the Red corner She's a nasty little cruiser that can smash an Omaha with a single volley, and has enough torpedoes to sink a Kremlin, please welcome, Wilhelmshaven's lil' Juggernaut.... Konigsberg!!! Now then, the rules are simple ( or not so simple ( and they will only be explained once, so PAY ATTENTION)) There will be two separate categories: The Objective category ( statistics, etc. ) and the Subjective category ( how they actually feel ). All statistics are courtesy of the wonderful folks down at the World of Warships Wikipedia - The one true source for ALL WoWs Knowledge. So then, lets get started. First... the NUMBERS ( All Values are for FULLY UPGRADED SHIPS, with NO MODULES INSTALLED OR COMMANDER SKILLS APPLIED) Stats Konigsberg Difference Emile Bertin Winner HP Pool Armor/Overmatch Resistance 24,300 100 mm armor +1800 Hitpoints (Emile Bertin ) +70mm ( Konigsberg ) 26,100 30mm armor Konigsberg Primary Armament Damage/Reload Range 3 x 3 150 mm L/60 Drh Tr C/25 HE: 1700 AP: 3900 Reload: 8 seconds Range: 16.5 KM Flat Arcs A-XY Configuration +500 HE ( Emile Bertin ) +700 AP ( Konigsberg ) -5 seconds ( Konigsberg ) +1.6KM ( Konigsberg ) = Equal Arcs + Turret config ( Emile Bertin ) 3 x 3 152 mm/55 Mle 1930 HE: 2200 AP: 3200 Reload: 13 seconds Range: 14.9 KM Flat Arcs AB-X Configuration Konigsberg Torpedo Armament Range/Speed/Reload Alpha Strike 4 x 3 533mm Drilling - G7 a T1 6.0 KM Range 64 Knots 68 second reload 13,700 Alpha Meh arcs x2 Torpedoes ( Konigsberg ) = Range + 7 Knots ( Konigsberg ) + 1,467 Alpha ( Konigsberg ) +Better Arcs ( Emile Bertin ) 2 x 3 550mm Lance-Torpilles - 550mm 19D 6.0 KM Range 57 Knots 84 second reload 12,233 Fantastic arcs Konigsberg AA Short Range Medium Range Long Range 4 x 1 Flak 38 ( 2km / 12 dps) 4 x 2 Flakzwilling 30 ( 3.51km / 10 dps ) 3 x 2 88mm L/76 Dop.

So then, which of these two cruisers has what it takes to win this smackdown? For starters, both ships each took three categories. Konigsberg took the first three categories with her superior armor boasting up to 100mm in some places , faster rate of fire on her main battery, with an 8 second reload, and having not only more torpedoes ( 12 versus 6), but also having superior torpedoes in the form of the vaunted G7 a T1 Torpedo, the same fish that are found all the way in the latter half of the tree. Yes, all the way up to the MIGHTY Hindenburg. On the other hand, Emile Bertin's AA, while not as fantastic as other ships at this tier ( Omaha, *cough cough* ), makes Konigsberg's AA look like fireworks, thanks to her Bofors. Her agility, however, is another story,as it can make some destroyers look pathetic in this regard ( except the French and Russian DDs at this tier, with all the Vodka - powered engines and such ). As for concealment, 0.2 Km isn't going to make much of a difference, but the agility of Emile Bertin gives her an edge, as the ship can dodge an incoming BB salvo with relative ease, so I give that to Bertin. So, who wins? It's close. Just kidding, it's Konigsberg, by a HUGE margin. While Emile Bertin may be more agile, harder to smash, and have better AA defenses, in reality, Bertin is just an Oversized DD, with a citadel, and her slow loading armament and slower fish only compound these issues, as opponents have better time to get to their senses and deliver a fatal blow to poor old Emile. Konigsberg, on the other hand, is just better. Yes, she does have that strange A-XY turret Configuration, and she has shorter ranged fish compared to her Japanese counterpart, Furutaka, but she does have faster loading guns, more fish, and has higher survivability potential thanks to her thicker armor, which means she's effective at an angle, as opposed to Emile, who can get citadeled by any gun larger than 203mm in caliber from ANY angle, even bow on. So, that's that. I hope you all enjoyed this little posting of mine. If you have any complaints or questions, you can leave them in the comments and I will answer as soon as possible. Stay tuned for the NEXT Volume of Super Smackdown. Season 1 Volume 2: TIER X TRIPLE SMASH: Mad Montana and Cowabunga Conqueror versus Krazy Karl Kurfurst. WHO can claim the throne as the best of the twelve-gun Tier Ten Battleships. Find out next week ( or sometime soon ) on SUPER SMACKDOWN Shrayes, out.
I've been playing Wows since October 2015 and since around November I'm absolutely in love for the german ships (cruisers and battleships). Now that I finally got my Hindenburg the fun in the game is focused in upgrading my Roon captain to the Großadmiral rank (19 point captain). In the mean time I found interesting to share with the community my thoughts on what I consider the best line in the game: The germans. First things you should know before starting your grind the the great Hindenburg is that the germans are very unique in its ship characteristics. Your main strenght relies in your artillery, without a good artillery and aim these cruisers become utterly useless. Your AP rounds are the strongest in the entire game and, even though low tier has better results with HE, you need to know how they work because, starting on tier five, you will probably forget your HE (It's a trap, don't do it). However the main weakness of these ships is in their armor. German armor is among the worst in the game and the basic with german cruisers (along with knowing AP usage) is ship angling, without it you won't be simply useless, you will be demolished from the surface. With that being said I think it's time for me to review the individual ships (yeah, this was the intro, so be ready for some huge texts). The Hermelin, Dresden and Kolberg won't be reviewed by the simple fact that they are all just HE spammers, a lot of guns and are placed in a tier where strategy is often forgotten in battles. If any kind soul wants to write them down below, feel free I refuse to review the Karlsruhe for the simple fact that I consider it, by far, the worst ship in the game. For this reason I believe that I haven't played it correctly and once I have time to start playing it I'll post a good review here in the Forum.
