This is really a beautiful ship.

 

This was one of my better battles in her. I did well and love the uniqueness of this ship:

Nice!

Funny I ran into this post because I hold the global record of damage caused in a battle in her. My girlfriend and I were divisioning and we managed to chase down and sink a KGV to win the game with a second to go.

Quite a memorable one.

Yes I have to agree she is great a ship I have never scored a game over the 100 K mark yet in HP but have come close twice this is one of them

I hope that when we get our Legendary KMS Captain its either Karl von Müller or Hans Langsdorff either way I would be happy.

While i don't keep a record of past battles i can certainly remember one in particular.

 

When you yolo rush a full HP North Carolina and Amagi, kill them both, and somehow still survive, as well as bouncing a full North Carolina salvo at 3km.

I got the HSF version because... Well, reasons that involve hastiness and poor reading comprehension. Anyway, I too am a lover of the Graf Spee. She absolutely wrecks in operations (Killer Whale in particular is fun because you actually get to use her as a commerce raider as she was intended) and even in PvP I tend to do well and rake in the credits with her (earlier today I managed to harass a Nelson halfway across the map and keep it occupied so that a Normandie and Farragut could finish the job). My best moment that I can remember thus far has to be on Operation Aegis. By chance I had a shot with both turrets on an Aoba as it was slipping behind one of the islands, firing through a small gap between rock outcroppings. I click, the guns go off, four shells make it through, and BOOM! Citadel one-shot!

I bought the HSF Graf Spee the day it released because I had missed the opportunity to earn the regular version. She's a pretty solid ship.

I have had many a great game in the Spee, but I cant recall one where I earned Liquidator in her!

Just wait until you fire off a full salvo with both turrets, the shells hit an enemy Cruiser causing 4 citadel hits and sunk. Did this yesterday, lol that was fun. I have played several 100k+ damage Graf Spee battles, but sadly do not often get screen shots of it or game crashes just as battle report loads. ( that is why it is good to have damage totals shown while in battles by adjusting settings to do so.)

I got her when she was made available through missions a while back.  I have always had fun with her although on the face of it she isn't very powerful just in dpm terms.  Had a great game on her today.  I find that, for whatever reason, Graf just suits me.  Gude Bote!

I had a pretty good game in my regular Graf Spee (I own both versions :p). . .20171111102938_1.thumb.jpg.95dfad618b3dc2bdc46b0d2a4ad4c2d8.jpg20171111102941_1.thumb.jpg.e6f00ae2a7653399f281cd78eef71555.jpg20171111102947_1.thumb.jpg.344564f7ffbff245b46cccc3ad8a66b8.jpg

It was a good game i didn't say our team won it though. (Our Saipan was half-caring about the game because they were doing a stream or something.)

one more solid hit would have killed the last ship and won this.  it was 3v1 against 3 fresh cruisers.  killed 2, but last one got me even though I whittled him down to less than 20%. I also killed a  colorado.

My HSF Admiral Graf Spee is my favorite ship, when I started WoWs one of the 1st ships I wanted was the Admiral Graf Spee. This was one of the ships I used to read about in school.

So when HSF came out with a Graf Spee I jumped at it just so I could have the Spee, now it is my go to ship I have used it in Random to Operations. I even got on Lord_Zath YouTube channel with one of my battles.

My best tale would be the time I sank two battleships by taking the Graf Spee between them and sinking both with Torpedoes. But I paid the price almost, had a little over 300HP left and spent the rest of the game dodging shells from a Kirov the only reason I lived was thanks to a teammate in an Leander who sunk the Kirov.
