I've had bismark for a while now, picked her up in some event if I remember correctly. 

Never got past bayern on the tech tree, have like 600 xp on her but I took out bismark multiple times today and she's a beast:

Keep on getting better with each match, didn't even die that last time in a T10, didn't know that I would like german BBs so much. Usually I just play her in divisions and never really pay much attention to her cause I'm busy talking.  Should have focused on her sooner, she's a beauty!

 

But on to the real reason I made this post (no it wasn't to show off...it wasn't just to show off) 

Looking for gameplay tips for bismark and for the ships that come after her (that I won't even attempt to spell nor pronounce) 

I've been playing her as a spearhead to the push so far, but it never hurts to ask if there's a better way to play her and her T9/10 counterparts right?

What do you guys think is the best way to handle her, what about captains, I feel pretty good about mine so far but I'm thinking about switching my IFHE for basics of survivability and high alert. 

I have a fully trained captain to play with so that's good if I want to go up the line.

Don't expect to much from the ol'Bismarck. I had the Tirpitz for a long time and really enjoyed playing that ship with its Secondaries and Torpedoes. But the Bismarck just wasn't as fun as her sister ship. I think cause its more fun to deliver the torps than to dodge them. Any way the next ship in the FDG is a treat and I enjoyed it way more than the Bismarck, this was before they buffed the T9. The GK is a riot to play when the enemy lets you get to Secondary range. 

I run a Secondary/Survival hybrid build for my German BBs. No use in using Concealment cause they are going to know I'm coming cause my guns are hot. IFHE isn't worth it either in my opinion. If those small guns can't pen something my big guns will, if they hit lol. 
As for play style I like to be with my DDs pushing or holding an area. Those Loliboats can get a lot of work done under my Secondary umbrella. Just remember your turtle back armor won't save your broadside from some Nasty AP hits, so keep angled as much as possible while still getting most of your guns on target.

Bismarck is stuck getting dragged into tier 10 matches in almost every game. The best build is to max out your secondaries (they have about a 7 km range which can be boosted) and escort other stronger ships, while your secondaries blast every which way like a hornets nest.

They can reach up to 11.4 I believe.

The Bismarck is great fun if you play it right in the right battle with the right team with the right map with no CVs.
