You shouldn't be battling Tier 10 at tier 7, and she does have thick armor so if your saying its thin you migth not be angling right.

You should try to get the upgrade that decreases your dissperions.

.....genei cant ever see t10 unless you fail div with her.... shes the most heavily armored ship at t7, due to her turtle-back, her torps and powerful secondary weapons make her an excelent brawler. just dont be an idiot and stay in the back, just keep pushing with your speed, and she should work wonders for you. remember though, her armor is on her SIDE, not her BOW, dont try to bow tank, its a good way to get yourself killed in her.

The Gniesenau is the 'upgraded' version with Hermelin turrets for dual-purpose AA Secondaries.

And it's the only Grind Battleship with torpedoes.  Sure, some premiums have them, but this is unique.

She has torpedoes, excellent secondaries, turtleback armor, and inconsistent dispersion.  All of this speaks to the ship's intended role: GET IN CLOSE!

Never plan on using your torpedoes. However, if someone closes and you can safely get them off teach them about fish.

True, but they still hint at the ship's intention.  You're certainly not going to hit anything with your torpedoes, secondaries, (or even your main battery) when hiding in the back!

Very true but for many players being too aggressive is a far bigger problem than sitting back.

Well, if one must fail, let them fail where they might do some work before they go. lol

Don't bow tank, come in at an angle and try to be around 10km from the reds. Just time your approach so you don't close in on too many reds and catch a paddlin. Basically you drive like a less maneuverable heavy cruiser but shoot and tank like a BB.

Judging by your survival rate, hit percentage and average damage I'm taking a guess you try sniping from max range allot and probably use HE mainly. That is the opposite of what your suppose to do in German battleships, your suppose to be close to the fight (10-12km is a good zone from my experience) and use AP

Both are just as bad as the overly aggressive player rarely does much more damage than the overly cautious sniper. Balancing the correct amount of aggressiveness and caution is the key along with recognizing when to be aggressive and when to be cautious.

Stop disrespecting this ship's capabilities by camping in the back and "sniping." If you can't hang with the brawling playstyle that the Gneisenau IS DESIGNED FOR, then stop playing German battleships now, sell her, and go play Japanese.

Yeah this is the best thing to do, you can even ask @Lord_Zath to look at it he helped me a lot with my HSF Graf Spee.

You can citadel a German at long range.  Snipping in a gneisenau will get u killed. Get in close and use your torps and secondaries. I have taken out an Iowa in close quarters thanks to two torp hits and two citadels within a few seconds

I just got the Geneisenau as well and I have to say it's my favorite BB right now. It's great for getting in close and contesting caps, and it's torps are a game changer. Just had a really good game with her although it ultimately ended in defeat.
