Due to the changes in player pool. Scharnhorst nor longer enjoys meeting T7s or below, but are constantly matched against T8 and 9s. The average tier players own after 2 years of release is not favorable to Scharnhorst. Buy it at your own peril.

She's far beyond a "good ship". She's the ultimate brawler. Grab Scharnie while you can.

oh yes

 

she may lose out in main gun performance vs. other BB's, but she is adept at popping cruisers and destroyers with her AP, so if you have spare $21.57 burning a hole in your pocket it should be hard to say no.

Let's see ...

One of the most popular premium ships of all time, one that has made several people's premium ship of the year list, including mine and I think Mouse's too, a ship that every time someone asks "should I buy it" the response is a unanimous 'yes', at half price ....

I wonder if that's a good deal or not.

She sure is a good ship. I would confidently say "yes."

But it's your money and your free time. Please do what you want with them.

I paid full price some time ago and never regretted it. At half price? Go get your credit card and have some fun!

Cruiser-esq ability to flex around the map coupled with zero flocks given Krupp armor.  Plus it can train both KM BB and CA skippers.

Probably the most forgiving premium ship. Did some stuff with her that I wouldn't try with some other boats. Excellent trainer for KM BB and CA. Good credit income. Only downside is that you lately see too many T9 matches.

She still outguns every other cruiser on a per-salvo basis except Kronshtadt, doesn't she?

I agree that in its early days, it seemed to see a lot more fights where it was top tier.  It was (and still is) brutally dominant when going up against a team of mostly tier 5 cruisers.  It was further aided back in the day by the fact that many players were taken by surprise when it launched torpedoes.  That's not the case anymore. 

Also, I agree that it struggles when it is in tier 9 matches, but it's still very serviceable and it remains very dominant when it is top tier.

If Ranked ever does Tier 7 again... uptiering woes are over.

Also... operations. Soft and squishy low-tier cruisers that it would normally never see abound.

You watch that sassy mouth of yours! Never question the value of the mighty Scharnhorst!!!!!

Quick checklist to see if the Scharnhorst is for you:

Do you like punching people in the face?

Do you like being the biggest, strongest DD in the game?

Do you like taking salvo after salvo for little to no damage?

Do you like sending torpedoes into the smoke of little DDs?

Do you like rushing the "OP" Belfast in its smoke and laughing at its futility?

 

Whether or not you answered yes to any of the above, the Scharnhorst is for you!

 

Joking aside: The Scharnhorst is the most fun ship in the game, without question. Buy it, play it, love it. You will not regret it.

That 21.57 just went real fast. Been wanting for that ship for a long time. Now I just to get off work and take her out for a little patrol.
