I just finished the Hunt for Graf Spee campaign and got this beauty of a ship. She looks pretty and her guns pack a powerful punch.

And here's my Graf Spee's theme song:

Same here. The XP requirements were pretty easy to attain with T10 gold camo.

 

I have been having really bad luck with mine today. Not trying for the convoy mision whatever thing, just playing and getting a feel for it.

 

I really feel like the secondaries should have a 7.2k max range or better accuracy than they do, but that could just be from the meh games I have had.

7.2 km secondaries in a T6 cruiser? Errrrr...no?

 

She's not a Scharnhorst.

+1  Congrats.

 

The Spee lives to eat cruisers.  Guns are great, aren't they?

I got mine yesterday. Only three games so far, but so far, so good I'd say. I hope this is a sign of things to come, letting us grind for ships OR just buy them, depending on how the bills fall. Congrates!

Going to get mine in a day or two depending on how quickly I can finish the last task. My Spee will be secondary-build though since I am going to retrain a good number of my German BB captains on him.

Might get mine today, due to a (legitimate) sick day yesterday, and enough dubs for a day of premium.

 

As an aside, even though they tell you how many credits you earn for premium vs. free, it's crazy how fast they stack up. Played for about 5 hrs yesterday, and noticed that I banked over 7 million credits just playing Gneis and Konig lol.

Got mine last night... took her on a shakedown - basically played her like an Auxiliary battleship and rode along-side my fleet-mate in his Fuso.

 

I think we got lucky, first battle in her, and it gave us a tier 6 max battle - walked away with a win, 70k damage, 2 kills, a 42% main battery accuracy, and a WTR of 1899 in it. Aside from needing to be aware of your surroundings, the guns work fine, the torps are adequate and as long as you don't venture out alone and have proper backup with good communication with your team, makes her a formidable cruiser in the right hands; here's to hoping I can keep the success of using it in the future.

 

(went ahead and installed the +5% speed flag - I suspect this'll be a necessity to help keep up with other cruisers should we end up "wolf-packing."

Yes, Sierra Mike can make a big difference in how this boat reacts to rudder changes!

Got mine last night, too. But I only had time for a single co-op game to try her out. Still did around 60k damage and a torp hit. She's going to be fun. Tonight I start the convoys.

Yes! Thank you WG, for a excellent T6 Heavy Cruiser. I got mine late Monday and she rocks! I'm kinda disappointed that no flag was included but I'll easily get over it.  :great:

I was anxious about playing mine after hearing so many people badmouth the commerce raider. Then my first match ended with 76k damage, then my second with 72k damage; both matches without a single torpedo launched. I think Graf Spee and I will get along just fine.

That's what I noticed after a few battles. You can really deal out the damage in this 'lil booger. She's pretty tough too.

Just got mine as well, great event all around.  Now I'm hoping I can get the at least the Budyony from the convoy missions, should have plenty of time

I JUST picked up my Graf Spee right before leaving for work this morning...

 

I didn't put my screen caps in Dropbox, so I will instead pull the numbers from Warships Assistant:

 

1 match - 1 victory

1376 experience earned

40101 damage dealt

58.3% accuracy Main Battery

0.00% accuracy Torpedoes (but I suck at torpedoes anyway)

killed in battle with about 2 minutes remaining.

 

All above average for me, so...  YAY.

 

I put my Nürnberg captain in it, and I will get the 10 point captain later today or tomorrow, so...  Cool!  Thanks for the ship WoWS NA!

Let's see...

Mission 1, done

Mission 2, can't wait.

Mission 3, already have the Leander, but ooh!  free camo!

MIssion 4, already have the Farragut, but, once again, free camo!

Mission 5, I would love a Budyonny!  And camo!

Mission 6, A Fuso?  Yes please!  And camo again??!

MIssion 7, already have the Bayern but, well, as stated repeatedly before...

MIssion 8, I would LOVE camo for the Graf Spee!

Mission 9, I don't have a Tirpitz (yet), so this one, if can even GET there in a week (doubtful) would be useless...

 

Still, I am going to grind the hell out of these to see how far I can get.

 

Once again, thanks WG!

Congratz!

 

Got mine the other night. Have yet to take her out in PvP. Played on game of co-op to start the Santa Convoy missions.

 

I want that Tirpitz cammo something fierce.

 

And the rewards along the way are very nice as well.

 

Good luck and fair seas.
