Even after the reload buff this ship has no role or purpose. I despise this thing. And don't give that "oh you're just not playing it right" [edited]. Any ship can made "good" by shear circumstance. It cant brawl (turning radius and vulnerability to torps), it can't BARELY even engage in medium range fire fights because of its gold awful dispersion, and its armor scheme allows 20k salvos even with good angling, turtleback be damned. You combine all of this with a massive bloated ship with mediocre AA and you have the most hated BB in the game. To add insult to injury, all other BBs had their Cits lowered so the relevancy of turtleback armor is now near useless. WG. Buff. This. Ships. Dispersion.
Recent reviews of the tier 9 Pommern are mostly positive and claim that it is a fun ship. On the other hand, there are numerous threads complaining about how the same tier FDG sucks and is a pain to grind to GK. Judging by stats, Pommern seems to just be an FDG with similar armor, lower health, more but smaller guns, and some torpedoes. Both are close range brawlers with excellent secondaries and hydro. What makes the Pommern so much better than the FDG?
Right now I have the FDG in port (Haven't reached Grosser Kurfurst yet). But I wonder, is it worth it to use it right now? For me the Grosser Kurfurst feels powercreeped, having good secondaries at tier 9 really doesn't seem to be a big pro. Meanwhile, it has massive detection, superstructure, poor arcs, armor, etc. Is it better that I just sell it, or keep going on? Is Grosser Kurfurst also worth it for tier 10 at all? I feel like the Montana is better, a ship I already have, since it's more flexible. Or something like the Republique or Conqueror would be ships that would be better to work towards
