She has come and gone several times, and sure to be seen again. But as to when... your guess is as good as anyone elses.  For now just grind the Hipper as it's the same boat.

Pretty ship. Tanky. Good torps. Sh*t DPM. Seriously. Eugen/Hipper BADLY needs a rate of fire buff. Not a big one, but still needed.

The only thing better about the Prince is that he gets better captain xp. This can be remedied by putting captain xp camo on the on the Hipper. Unless you are collecting it, your premium dollars might be better spent elsewhere.

She makes a very good suicide charging DD with those torps, too. :D

I find, like much of the later tier german cruisers, that she's quite good at yolo charging battleships when angled due to her well spread belt armor. Plus her bow can bounce 15 inch shells.

 

Hmm, maybe that's why they don't want to change her rate of fire. She still needs it, though. 13 second reload on eight 203s at tier 8 is baaaaad. People used to complain about New Orleans' 14 second reload with nine guns and she got that buffed to 12s, which was dearly needed. Now it's Hipper/Eugen's turn.

I routinely charge BB's in them and then slew the side and out pops many metal thingies that go boom. It's epic, even when it doesn't work. I hear "Ride of the Valkries" in my head every time I do it.

Ha, have done this a couple of times when bottom tier - get your self in position and run at a BB ( Yami if you can with slow turning turrets),  try to get really close and unleash....

Playing almost nothing but Hipper at the moment, as you can tell by my recent stats. I don't know why you would buy the same thing with real money. It's the definition of a low-impact ship. I never felt as if I was accomplishing anything in any match.

 

Both ships could use a RoF buff. The 1/4th HE pen means nothing if there's no real damage behind it. Roon and Hindenburg make up for this with the RoF mod and way more survivability. I might just switch to pure AP and hope for superstructure (over)pens.

Except for PE having 1200 more health points than Hipper and better bonus's on the camo, they are indeed the same boat.

There is a reason the US nuked it at Bikini Atoll..  Although it looks cool and has rather nice torpedoes, the gun DPS induces cringing when the ship is caught out in the open - the ship isn't likely to survive a medium range duel because it can't damage enough and it's fat.

Ignore the haters.  I love my Priz Eugen.  Good ship when played properly and fun as hell.

The ship was used at Bikini Atoll because her propulsion kept failing and they had already ripping out the technology on the ship for study. It had nothing to do with it's rate of fire. Please remember that the rate of fire you see in game, and the rate of fire in real life are not the same thing. Game RoF is set for balance purposes. Don't use in game revisionist thinking when describing a ship's *real life* capabilities. PE had a better rate of fire than the Baltimore class cruisers ... which was reflected in the game until they buffed the Balti's rate of fire without touching the PE's.
