Lol with many of you guys able to buy Scharnhorst, and battles filled with cruisers because of USN CAs... I imagine some of you have probably had a field day sinking shells into those Cruiser Citadels and robbing the CAs of their speed advantages with the Scharnhorst’s speed. Any of you care to have a nice confession? Lol I don’t have a Scharnhorst, so might be fun to hear about the fun some of you are likely having at the moment. :Smile_popcorn:

Not me; Shinyhorse is yet another supposedly ‘great’ ship that never works for me.

So many years and a lot of trouble I take it?

Hmm this will take a while.

Based on my experience with Graf Spee 11’ guns which are similar to Scharnhorst, you need to use AP Ammo most of the time and take advantage of all the ships that sail broadside to you. The CAs are particularly delightful to hit since they take citadel  hits a a lot if they sail broadside.

Scharnhorst is the cruiser that I play when I'm in the mood for pure, unadulterated, aggressive fun.

If I've had a run of unbelievably passive teams in a row, the Scharn is the perfect ship for breaking through that passivity and forcing the issue.

Sharnhorst doesnt citadel CAs as well as you think. If you are fighting noobs that dont know how to angle, then yes. But good players at tiers 6-8 will rarely show their broadside to you and even if they do ... the dispersion on the 11" guns is pretty horrible.

Even with Aiming Mod upgrade?

No, but the Bismark, Richilieu, and Iowa have been taking turns at the cruiser buffet.

Only played my Scharnhorst 2x today. I caught a Cleveland in a bad position & made a brawl out of it.   I sunk another cruiser in the same battle. In the other battle I did not get a "kill shot" but finished 7th in damage. Not terrible for a bottom tiered ship.  On the flip side I played my Baltimore for the 1st time. It was one of those rare battles where we look like a team, not a bunch of random people thrown together my the MM mechanics. My friend & I were on cruisers & we joined with 2 BB's. They would draw fire & we would move in and do our best to keep their targets burning.  After we broke up  the red team's push on the west side of the map their cruisers didn't have a chance but neither did their BB's as we were able to isolate them from any support because the other part of our team was working well together also. Wish I was in more battle like that.

Agreed! Scharnie is more of a Cruiser than that tier 9 borscht bucket that WG calls a Cruiser. (BTW, I saw several of those abominations in Randoms today and none of them survived a battle)

While I love Scharnhorst, I aint driven her in Randoms for a long time. Why? Because she's rated as a BB! And I have a allergy to driving BBs because I might be mistaken for a BB main. :cap_haloween:

Nope. Played a grand total of one match, earlier, and it was a loss. On days when I cry, I kind of lose the motivation to game, and wind up just laying down.

Of course; through the self-defeating, self-inflicted sorcery that is my gameplay; I never manage to be where that is. Basically the same rason I hate all the RN cruisers and think they're total garbage.

Better be careful not to kill too many of them, Grand Admiral, especially if they're piloted by Noghri (and a certain one named Rukh at that—apparently there is, in fact, a player named Rukh in the game, although his(?) stats are hidden so I can't really tell what he plays)

Otherwise...you might end up saying "but...it was so artistically done" while three fires rage on your Scharnhorst and and your damage control is still on cooldown

Even with the mod. Dispersion can be outright brutal at times.

Same with any battleship.... yamato, conq, montana, grosser, repub, iowa, missouri, izumo, musashi, f der, lion, alsace, gascone, monarch, richleau, bismarck, tirpitz, amagi, kii, alabama, nc... list goes on...

why? Because battleships have the worst stigma of all the ships which create bad dispersion.

Sadly I do not own a Scharnhorst due to the cost of buying one. Hence the reason I am asking how the hunting is for them, since I imagine those that can afford to buy Scharnhorst have probably been having field day.
