The tech tree was expanded for Christmas and New Year. With 7.1 some of the ships went back into the vault.

Oh god... Don't remind me, It break my heart every time I think of her, such a pretty girl she was unlike the other Russian ships. *Gags* So ugly the tech tree ships they are.

Ummmm....where did all the premium ships go?  They are almost all gone.

Scharn nice ship.  I got it. A bit tricky to play.  BB armor but only cruisers guns...11inch. Torps are her ace in the hole in close. She is great at killing DDs and other cruisers but big gun BBs....can do............ but ya gotta get in close. AND at her tier u see more BBs than cruisers. I suck but I do have over 50% win rate in her. But I get carried a lot!  Carry on mate.:Smile_honoring:

 

O secondaries good but that is not what usually does the killing.  Main guns and torps....IMO.

The ships for sale rotate fairly regularly. You missed the window this rotation is all. It's not like Shiny Horse (Scharnhorst) is OP so it'll be back.

She is definitely unique in capabilities and play style. If you can figure out a way to make her work for you, she is tons of fun. Also does pretty well in the Tier 7 operations as they are well stocked with her favorite food; cruisers and DD's! :) Built right she has decent anti-air too.

I sold my Kutuzov (which I hated) and used the doubloons to buy Missouri.  Very happy with that trade.

WWII...11 inch were not BB guns. NOT BB. 11 inch were WW1.  

 

That is why Scharn is odd.

They were put on the Scharn and the guns were effective against he French Dunkerque class battleship. Also an improved version was supposed to go on the 1047 Battlecruiser (Netherlands). The guns on the Scharn were designed for her. So yes 11 inch are still battleship sized guns just not normally used anymore. Only other ships to really use them were the Deutschland Class cruisers (Armored Cruisers) and the Scharnhorst and Gneisenau battleships.

You could probably get an argument about WWII era 11 inch guns being battleship size guns but I see your point. She was called a BB (or battlecruiser) but I think that also was because her armor is indeed BB rated.

Well to be fair her purpose was more of a commerce raider if I am not mistaken but her guns were adequate for most surface ships because of how they were designed. Also the Gneisenau was designed so she could be upgunned to the 15 inch guns. Battlecruiser is really kinda like Battleship light.

Heck it was just a normal conversation bout a ship. We had nothing to sling poo at each other about.  But I know the types you mention.  Always looking for a fight.  Silly.  I appreciate your input.

By the way I notice you have been on a down slide win rate for awhile.  So have I for a month.  I can't figure out why but I been losing a bunch the past few weeks. I am a 48% player but I thought I was going to pass 50% bout a month ago.  But noooooo.  Game drives me nuts at times.  Am not a stat freak I just want to get to 50%....at my age I would be happy with that.  I only play random as a lone wolf.  Random is a dice roll much of the time.:Smile_honoring:

I haven't been playing as much so I'm getting really rusty at the game. My mood and drive have been falling through the floor so it feels like I can't be bothered to play. It sucks really cause I don't know what to do about it. Anyway if you wanna chat more message me or something so we don't inadvertently hijack this thread lol.

they seem to reappear randomly in Christmas crates.  Yeah that's a few months away.  But I picked-up a couple no longer purchasable prem-shipz in Xmas crates both this last Xmas and the previous Christmas.  Thanks Santa-SerB
