As I mentioned elsewhere, it cannot hit the waterline reliably at 2km. Why even bother...

 Low tier games are meh.. I started German DD line but can't tolerate more than 1 game per day at T4 right now. I hope my perception shifts soon since I want to progress up the line.

it's fun to go back to low tiers for a little none pressure enjoyment from time to time

I bought it...fist game out zero point captain...85k dmg and three kills.  It's a fun little ship for a change of pace.

 

If the radar, smoke, hydro, CV hell of tier 8 is more your cup of tea...to each his own I guess.

IMO the ship sucks. I bought it based on the hype when it first released. I played a few games in it and never touched it again. It's turrets are so slow it's sad... You can't do any tactical maneuvers. It has basically no AA... So CV's can do with you as they please. 

 

DD's can ambush you and you'll be total helpless, because of how much of a whale it is and the SUPER SLOW turrets.

She's a pretty ship, her model is very well-done, and damn can she sealclub.

I don't think you know what an ambush is...

I didn't know it was possible to be this wrong about something.

Sorry but it's true. I never had any problem killing them either. Then again I play T4 now and then.

Even it has a reputation of sealclubbing, I feel that low tier games are not very interesting...

 

She may be a good ship, but how many people actually play tier 3s? Not many. I play Nickolai once in a while, but thats more for sh*ts and giggles. Every time I see an Albert trying to seal club, I club them in return.

 

Most good players are playing 5s and above.

This and for someone like me that just got back from a two month long layoff because of real life issues the low tiers are a good way to work off the barnacles and get your sea legs back.

I think KA is a very handsome ship.  Compare it to contemporaries like New Mexico's A hull, or (gag) Fuso's A hull.  I certainly prefer it to the fictional refit of Kaiser from an aesthetic point of view.

I'll take a closer look at her later then.

20 minutes in a T3 premium to generate stuff-all XP, FXP, Capt. XP or credits?

No thanks.

Cheap fun, every once in awhile drop a 19 point captain in and damage stuff... don't play tier 3 much, but when I do I make sure it is in a KA - stay salty my friends

And I generally have no problem killing idiot Nikolais who go broadside, doesn't mean its not brokenly OP when a good player is using it.

If you're sailing alone in a big BB, you're doing it wrong! What's more ANY BB is next to helpless when a DD gets up close and personal.

I like Fat Albert, a seal clubber's delight! :etc_red_button:

I find battles at all tiers from 3 on up to be fun. I find tier 3-4 battles to not be as intense as higher tiers and more enjoyable. I don't get as much credits and xp, but I'm having fun!

It is just awful: slow, clumsy, poor dispersion. But it wins because the other T3 BBs are not as good.

 

Its literally an already good tier IV, minus the AA, at tier III.

 

What's not to like.

This is kinda why I'm shying away from the Albert.  Oh, low tier ships can be good for some ships and giggles, particularly in coop.  But anything below tier 4 is usually excluded from the regular missions, so you can't have any fun with them trying to work missions.  So, much as I'm tempted to get me a Konig Albert, I think that I'll save my money for higher tier ships.

For what it's worth, I'd like to see the tier 5 Russian DD put back on sale.
