The latest reload buff to Hindenburg finally persuaded me to take her out of port again. Boy was I happy I did. This ship now has the bite it needs to punch at its weight class. (I burned a Yamato and a Musashi to the waterline). I look forward to playing this ship consistently in the future. Thank you WG for a good buff... now go and buff some other ships who need it.shot-20_01.18_13_04.15-0920.thumb.jpg.691d2973ce7382360554faaaaf124f1d.jpg

How much buffage did it get?

With reload module it gets cut down to 8.6 seconds.

buffed? more like overbuffed.

Her reload is almost exactly the same as it was two years ago before the first reload nerf. Except now it's a whopping 0.2 seconds faster.

The hilarious thing is that this isn't really a buff - as it's reload was nerfed a year or so ago?  

This "buff" is just an adjustment back to it's original reload rate, wasn't it?

Updated to acknowledge the post above this one - I hadn't realised it was actually a buff to the ship's original reload - ha ha!  Hilarious!

By .2 seconds. She was still a beast after the nerf. She treats people well with her AP.

but she seems so much easier to citadel these days

I think that is people are playing her at distance, as an he spammer, where the turtleback does allow more cits than at closer ranges.

Yup.  The game really needed another long distance HE spammer.

Well Done WG!  Take a Gold Star out of petty cash.

I don’t think Hindenburg was exactly meant to be played as an HE spammer. Her HE is anemic thanks to the 6k AP shells she can throw although certainly better than Hipper because of the 4x3 ABXY turret layout. Just seeing Hindenburg shooting HE at everything just seems... lazy...
Granted there are times that HE is the better choice but even shooting AP at the superstructure just seems like a better deal. Am I missing something here?

Yes I know AP can bounce that is always the drawback but when I think German CAs, even for the Roon, I think AP not HE.

17km isn't exactly far range at Tier X. For that matter, KMS HE is rather poor damage wise. To be fair to my results I had two bbs who decided to repair one fire, only to be lit up by three fires as soon as their cooldown was on.

Welcome to crazy town; where everything old is new.

 Yea, pity they didn't give it something besides the ability to spam long range HE.

Say like AP.

Or twelve torpedoes.

Turtleback armor.

Good hydro.

Decent AA. (whatever that's worth these days).

Hindenburg HE or AP will wreck a DD.

Her AP chunks the softer spots on BB's quite nicely.

No cruiser lives long in a T-10 brawling situation; but Hindy does it better than most.

"Long range HE spammer" 

 

That's a hoot. She's actually quite versatile.
