How do you guys feel about the SMS Geoben becoming the new t3 german battleship? In short same guns, better layout, less armour, but better speed.

Dont listen to him. He thinks WG ninja nerfed the KA when they pulled her from the store.

Ah ok, well all things considered I guess I am not surprised. I'll never understand how people can believe the silly conspiracies.

Goeben is a pretty cool ship, maybe wins the category of "this ship should be famous" given it's history.

 

That said, it's t3, who cares. 

 

Because many of us are interested in history.

Why would the KA be replaced?  It's a pretty strong ship, it's only real weakness is that it sees T4 ships and the Orion can eat anything for lunch...

Tell me, do you pay for the idiotic things you spout, or do they come naturally to you?

 

I ask...FOR SCIENCE!

It still kicks stern as far as I can tell. One of my favorite ships.

Funny, I am not by any means the best exponent of the K. Albert, but I do better than 50% in it. It's fun, handy and punishing.

Filling the low tier premium niche outside the *snrk* option that is Mikasa :cap_yes:

KA needs to be replaced as in its not available via ordinary means anymore, not that it needed to be replaced with a better ship.  Snatched one up for my noob friend so he could have a ship to practice on, I'm very content with Nassau and Bellerophon personally. :cap_tea:

 

RIP Kawachi

Hehe.  Ok, if you mean that there should be a T3 premium BB, then sure.  The more ships the merrier! But I don't think the new boat needs to be better than, or even as good as the Koenig Albert.  That's my only point.

Actually, like many of the older premium ships, the KA has fallen victim to the ever present power creep in WOWS.

The short range of her guns make her nothing but fodder for the British flame thrower BBs, that can hit her at ranges that the KA cannot reply to.

I have played a few matches since this thread got started. among my kills: an Orion and a Bellerophon. So IDK. 

Her accuracy for her main guns is still excellent, she still blots out cruisers (and the odd DD), same as always. 

 

Yes, the UK BBs are sweet, I have them too, but the KA is still a lot of fun and I am glad I grabbed her before the change to the premium shop lineup.

 

That said, I would like a Goeben, or a Lutzow, or a Derfflinger... :)

Sure, I would be happy to see a new German Tier III premium BB. Bring it on.

I'd rather have Seydlitz or Lutzow. But Goeben would work too

Goeben? A Moltke class?.... in T-3?.....uhm...

 

Schleswig-Holstein, that's my nominee. Dont care if she isn't T-3 material (yeah she's clearly T-2, been a Pre-Dreadnought and all).... i just want to see her.
