I'm currently grinding the Maas and I'm 100k away from getting the 15th captain skill point.  Would CE be good for the German DD's or are they like the Russians where it's not as good and the points should be put somewhere else?

For sure get the CE skill.It takes you down to detection in the z46 ( highest i have) to 5.9. With 10kms torps its a good stealth ship. Now HOWEVER when you fire your guns all that goes out the window.So plan your shots if you know you can win the battle one on one.Hope that helps!:)

It's all-but required for ships from the Maass onwards if you don't want to be out-concealed by every non-Russian DD you run into.

 

That stupid bloom, though...

Thanks guys.  I'll keep grinding the captain to make it easier to grind through the rest of the line.

I think it's probably your best bet to get concealment to be less terrible. Probably won't help much with firing your guns if I had to guess.

The z-46 has 5.9km concealment with CE which makes it a very competitive cap contester.

Yeah - totally take it. The only line that CE isn't required is Russian - even then though - Russian DD's benifit a lot from CE too. Considering how good the German torps are starting at t7 Stealth torping is going to be your main source of damage. CE is a must IMO.

Without it, you end up with around a 1km-ish Stealth Torp window. With it, you can get a 3km+ window, which is a stupidly huge difference.

 

But yeah, the guns stay consistently bad at long range and due to the bloom, shouldn't be fired unless you have no other choice (DD vs DD), the target can't fire back (Shooting over an island or at a BB with guns facing away, ect), or in a fleet battle where there are friendlies around to make you less of an insta-target.

You'll want CE for when you finally get to 52. With CE and the concealment mod and the right set up, you can get a 3km stealth fire window with the Z-52.

Have to agree, CE is required on the higher tier German DDs. It makes torpedoing, cap contesting, stealth firing (I don't use this setup myself, but it can work), and sneaking up on enemy DDs to hydro them all much easier.

If you move your captian up to the Z23 once you get it, CA helps alot. Your torpedoes are you strength so being able to get off safely is important. Then just take pop shots or go balls to the walls on cruisers and battleships if and when the opportunity presents itself.
