s65Plhb.jpgI managed this (came 6th in team) after starting a match with a huge amount of flaming and catcalls in chat. 5 minutes into game, the insults stopped as ships started burning:cap_popcorn:

Opposite number was in a Lexington.

Most of my games in Graf Zep are not even close, so ofc don't take this as evidence for anything other than revenge is sweet:)


Disclaimer and Get out of jail free card.

This thread is neither here to defend, promote nor criticize the Graf Zeppelin, but to share the experiences of those who own and play it. Initially my own. It has also grown into a little competition among owners for who can get the best results, despite the obvious handicap it faces. And in this way, offering encouragement.

Neverthless, this thread does attract its fair share of unpleasant comments from those who should have no personal interest in the current iteration of the Graf Zeppelin, who neither play nor own it. Some of these people are proving to be simply as unpleasant as their comments. Even to the point of bringing grievances from outside of the game into this thread (of which I have no interest), to the point of stalking forum users. If the thread topic offends you so much you feel the need to shitpost, rather than that, why not start your own thread discussing all the bad experiences and all the bad you think about the Graf Zeppelin? Or if your sense of being offended is so profound, speak to a moderator.

So please, if you have a comment to make, make it about a genuine experience with or versus a Graf Zeppelin, or drawing upon publically available data, and make it constructive.

I got a 118k game with the AP bombs once. That took the smug face off those battleships.

I'm sure someone has got a Kraken in a Krispy Kreme, but hey, I've never seen it.

I was just sharing my observations

 

Yeah in random I am finally seeing people stick back while explode the DDs before moving up myself. The community is starting to get that you got to stay close to the GZ to get the most out of her. I am to the point I am capping along with the DDs sometimes.

I'm just amazed you were able to down 12 planes...

Choose the right captain skills, I can down 1 plane for every 3 I lose. (Enough to buy time for my DBs to get through). Air sup it ain't. Keep fighters near CAs and aa heavy BBs for mutual support. Not always easy, but doable.

Even with no carrier skills I've broken 20 planes shot down before against a Shokaku. I'm waiting for my Graf Captain to get to 10 points, as that should help a bit.

Looks good ...although not as good as the 20 Grathew did with No Skillpoints, though...   *TIC*

Now I have it! (versus a Shokkkkkkkaku no less/) shot-17_08.30_04_04.48-0788.thumb.jpg.816875c65ac9d7d2ec0958a87c117473.jpg 

 31 shot down. Only 9 fires though. The second kill was with my secondaries (an Algerie got too close)

Also it's not a 0 point captain. It's my 19 point Roon captain.

Playing Graf Zep is daunting but I am noticing little things about her and her quirks that have made me adjust my playstyle. I have found I am getting more and more effective with her the more I play her and learn her strengths and weaknesses. I love that she isn't a "hit the button and win" ship. I think after 3 months of testing and with all of our feedback she will be a literal God-Demon incarnate when she is re-released.
