Wow! That boat is now rocking! 

If before PE was a steady performer at par with Hipper somewhat below average even for tech tree ships now that tug shines! Tested it in ranked and I am totally amazed. Prior to this Kutuzov was my ship for ranked, now it is PE.

The buff seemed like one of the least justified buffs they could've done, the ships were incredibly good now they are bordering overpowered.

I respectfully disagree that they were incredibly good. Okay at most and in the hands of a good player. 

and Hipper is still a turd :Smile-_tongue:

The performance metrics disagree, weather in the hands of a complete potato, average player, or super unicum they were second to last amongst T8 cruisers and one of the worst cruisers of any tier in the game. Only New Orelans was underperforming worse amongst T8 cruisers.

I bought the Eugen, noticed my WR was radically lower, and chastised by this, went back to the Hipper selling the Eugen.

I examine all new premiums with a close eye after that debacle. I want truly unique premiums like the Atago, Belfast, or Asashio, not a tech tree clone with some added frill.

I have bad news for you. Asishio is Kagero clone with a twist. Just like Eugen

Yes, once I found out that my premium camo for the Hipper would stay as it was.

There is a really unfathomable thing about how a particular player meshes with a particular ship. The Hipper does far better for me than the Eugen. i went for the Eugen because... history.

I am happy for those that do well on her, it's entirely subjective.

I never did this well on my Kagero first battle. But yes, time will tell.

Ok dude, I’m just saying selling a premium ANY premium for in game credits is a waste

On the bright side then Hipper did a lot more than Eugen did.

I’m just saying from experience. I sold Perth for credits, and I regret that decision heavily. Not because it’s a good ship per day but because the trade off of doubloons to credits just isn’t worth it. But again that’s your decision to make

I played 10 battles in ranked tonight driving Lo Yang and did pretty good, got to rank 15. I saw a few PEs in those battles and they did pretty good, good enough to convince me to try out PE in Ranked tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Yes that's fair. I doubt that will happen again.

Here is Prinz Eugen. I couldn't find one of him in the buff, sorry.

Thanks for that. It was a great read. Prinz Eugen was the real deal. an old-school European professional soldier. A campaigner of the first order.

I had always assumed the ship was named for some stuffy Imperial relation. It is interesting to see that it was named for a truly outstanding military "personality". 

All three ships of the class, Admiral Hipper, Blücher,  and Prinz Eugen were named for real fighters.

  Yep- brought out Eugen for the first time since the buff- and ended up topping my team and earning more than 9500 xp in a Ranked game!   That heal is awesome!

 Even better, I pulled off an epic dodge of torps I never even saw until they were past me.  (Benson was behind me scrapping with ours, while trying to work close to our Richelieu.)   Lol- I was just trying to dodge torps and shells from the Red Eugen in front of me!    He ate my torps, and got citted through the bow for good measure.

  No doubt, Eugen is a lot more fun to play now.

 

  It did not, however, fare so well in non-ranked games last night.   Tier 10's were out in droves, and BB's outnumbered everything else...
