 Was really worried when at the start of the game I saw I was in a tier 7 match with a tier 5 German cruiser. Scared even. I thought, oh no here comes a detonation, lol. Then a thought that one you in the Forum here put in my head kind of popped up like a light bulb above my head. It said, Use you ships strengths and try as best you can to hide it's vulnerabilities. My range is 16.5 and the guns are pretty accurate so I lay back and let the High Explosive shells fly at anything in range. I kept turning zig and zag and zag and zig till I got dizzy! I set 13 Fires! Those fires killed 2 ships and I got a decent score. Next game in her I won't worry so much. That was fun! Hope you all safe and healthy out there!

Much better than the "stop uptiering me" threads where we offer plenty of cheese to go with that whine :Smile_teethhappy:

If you can play to the strengths and survive early game, being uptiered is an awesome xp hail! I won’t pretend to love it, but I don’t mind either, all part of the game. GG there OP

Königsberg is a fun ship.  I actually enjoy being bottom tier when I play her.

It's not the ship; it's the Captain.

This^.  Google "Defeatist Attitude" and don't let the tier defeat you.

The mid tier German and RN CLs are the ones looking good post-IFHE / Armor changes.

 

RN CLs got their peculiar AP-only gimmick, so it's business as usual for them.

German Cruisers got the HE Pen Buff from years ago going for them, which affected CL & CA guns.

 

HE-capable CLs from the other Cruiser Lines in mid tiers are sucking pretty bad after the changes.

RIP Atlanta-class.

Congrats, you've learned a very valuable lesson and put it to practice with success. This will help you on your journey up the tiers in many lines.

 

I'll leave you with this proverb:

You should see what happens when you catch a BB looking the wrong way at 10-12km, and you swiss cheese his superstructure with KBerg AP....:cap_rambo:
