I think I'm enjoying the FDG more than I did the Bismarck.

Yeah, unpopular opinion alert. I've found that the Freddie's guns are a lot punchier and I've recently finally gotten Manual Secondaries on the captain to complete my secondary build. As you can see, it's paying off.

Freddy was buffed last fall, and since then it's been an absolute joy to play.  To me, the FDG is how the rest of the German line should be modeled.

I played her pre-buff so I can't really comment on her current state.  But back then she burned a bit too easy and the dispersion on her 406's was atrocious.  BUT her 406's where far easier to use than the 380's on the Bizzy.  I also feel like it would be a lot safer to play her in a brawler style now days with CV's keeping DD's fairly well spotted.

Either way,  if you like the FDG you'll LOVE the Kurfurst.  She's an absolute beast.

FDG got buffed fairly recently.  The guns reload quickly and the 105mm secondaries got the /4 HE Pen Buff instead of the normal /6.

 

I had a fond time with FDG even before the buffs.

I felt the same way when I moved from the Bismarck to the FDG. I own and enjoy playing my Tirpitz but I could not make the Bismarck work and I did not enjoy playing it. However, the FDG felt way better than the Bismarck and I enjoyed playing it. This was before they buffed the FDG. 
In my opinion the FDG is one of those few Good Tier 9 ships in the game. Which makes it an easy grind to get the even better Grober Kurfurst.

Poor old Bismark has been power crept into near uselessness, (not to mention the curse of tier 8 MM, which consistently puts her up against tier 10 monster battleships) and Fat Freddy De Goober is just a ton more fun. It IS a good tier 9 (rare beastie there) and enjoyable despite her dispersion (ouch). Fun ship.

It's Bismarck on  steroids, and the Bismarck with enhanced secondaries is still a very mean machine.

Check out Flamu on the FdG:
