So does anyone have any updates on the coming soonTM T6 German Battlecruiser Battleship Prinz Eitel Friedrich? Lots of videos and talk when it was 1st announced but now nothing but tumbleweeds and crickets? I was/am looking forward to this one but haven't heard a peep on it for quite a while now.

She's being held back in port due to the Royal Navy blockade.  But don't worry.  Ze Germans will have to come out and play eventually, and the Royal Navy will greet them.

So they can get stomped by German battlecruisers in this game, just like at Jutland!

I hope it doesn't take 3 months to get Prinz Eitel!

I bought a Dasha captain just to drive it!

It is in the dry dock where they kept T-61 for ages. I hear those dock workers are not too fast, just meticulous.

Then I would rather have Sedlitz...

Dreadnaught, Unsinkable, Fireproof, and who knows what else; all in one battle.

She'll be released whenever WG is ready to release her, just like T-61, Haida, and Cossack. Right now, Cossack is currently the hot-seller, along with some of their other temporary shop bundles. Once those go away, or sales drop, expect PeF or some other Premium that's ready to go to be released afterwards (if there's any; Le Terrible being the only other one that appears to be ready).

Personally, I'm actually expecting JB and Alaska to be released ahead of PeF. Jean Bart has been an overall demanded Premium (across all servers; but more EU/Asia/RU) whereas Alaska is mostly an NA-demanded Premium. Le Terrible could likely be released alongside JB, and maybe even Bourgogne, just to wrap up the French Premiums for the time being (at least until the French DD line comes, probably sometime next year). That's assuming WG doesn't suddenly toss out an upgraded Lyon-class at T8, with superfiring AB turrets and a shifted back superstructure + speed boost + better accuracy + modernized Richelieu-style DPs.

Why not an upgraded tier 7 Dunkerque, i.e. the Strasbourg?  (What IMO the Dunkerque should have been all along.)  Maybe take the Dunkerque, give it speed boost and the reload booster, and perhaps a buff to her guns, if necessary to make her tier 7 worthy.  And just use the Dunk's sister ship's name, i.e. the Strasbourg.  And then you'll have a pretty legit tier 7 French BB.  And one that's pretty historical.

How so?  They failed in their job which was to break the blockade that was strangling Germany :Smile_glasses:  When the cease fire came about, both hands of the Royal Navy were firmly wrapped around Germany's throat.  That doesn't look at all like the RN getting "stomped" :Smile_teethhappy:

Why not both?

WG already mentioned that they omitted Strasbourg from the line since she'd be better off as a Premium, considering the level of upgrades/updates she got over Dunkerque, and the need to balance her differently from a more traditional battleship like Normandie and Lyon in consideration for gun caliber.

Ironically enough, French BBs have good uptiering potential. Strasbourg due to her actual history, but Lyon can just as easily uptier with a slight change to the design that still makes more sense than what we got. WG insists that Lyon could get a proper speed boost from the changes and hypothetical refit they made, but it doesn't quite make sense with the B turret and its barbette in its place over where some machinery for that speed would have been. Now if they were to switch the B turret with the superstructure, and make the B turret superfiring over the A turret, and move back the superstructure, that frees up more space for the theoretical refit machinery and other upgrades.

In-game, this would also be a net buff to her offensive capabilities; being able to bring 8-8 front or rear. This also frees up more space along the centerline for additional DPs or a modernized update to the same DP mounts used on Richelieu, as well as some armoring upgrades for T8. Just tighten the accuracy for T8 and modernize the AA/secondaries, and go with a more realistic armor scheme that is suitable for T8, and she'd be fairly strong, with the only real weakness being a lack of speed (even with speed boost) and gun caliber. She'd have to pick her fights carefully as well, and shift regularly between HE and AP. While she won't have RN HE spam like KGV, she has enough shells for more fire chance rolls.

This is might be a sign the Prinz Eitel would carry torpedoes?

I like the idea!
