I didn't think that I would make it but I did, 18 phases completed. WG was gracious enough to give me the doubloons from recruiting and I happened to luck out on the recent chance containers and the Cossack was the first chance, so I bought it for 1,500 doubloons and more than doubled my gold. So thank you WG for the Free Odin. It took a while in Co op but I got her and at no cost to me, cool.

My first battle. I wish that she was a tier 7, then I would probably use her in Narai. Unfortunately she is probably just a Snowflake now.

You might take it out of port more than you're thinking: 

  • German BB captain trainer.
  • Ship that completes BB, German, tier VIII+, torpedo, secondary, and potential damage missions/stages/events (low HP takes a bit of care, but it's still great armor and the effect of the low HP is exaggerated).  
  • Ship that is genuinely fun to play.

My buddy who picked one up for the 1500 doubloons love her, and has been on a Odin-apologist binge whenever we talk about ships. So much so, I'm almost convinced she will end up being one of those ships people will look a few months down the road as an acceptable ship to take into Tier 8 battles with a really high floor of skill needed to sail her and an even higher ceiling for what she can accomplish. I said almost. I'll do an one-on-one in a custom game against him with my Tier 8 Standard Battleship (i.e. USS North Carolina) and we'll settle this once and for all.

Which map are you thinking you'll use?

I was actually shocked how fun she is. I don't like Scharnhorst and I don't like Bismarck, and yet... combining the two just works.

How much is it to buy the last couple of phases?

3,500 doubloons for 2 phases. 1,750 per phase.

More than I have at the moment. That means I'd have to put out some real cash to buy it.  Hmmmm

Just to be fair, we'll randomize the map selection and roll a die. I have no doubts, he will hide like a good Kriegsmarine until I get too close, so it might be a lot of games where we just run out of time. We did the same thing back in Navyfield, South Dakota versus Bismark. Although the Bismarks in that game never got torpedoes either.

If you need to be swayed one way or the other, Mouse's review does a great job at selling the fun factor as well as compares her to Tirpitz quite a lot to show all the many differences between the two. Not only that, but her torp placement on the rear, while giving them a slightly worse arc than Tirpitz, also results in the rarely being taken out. In something like 10 matches in Odin, I don't think my torp tubes have been destroyed once, and even incapacitations are rare, as people don't shoot at sterns that much.

If you have recruited some people go and check if you have any benefits coming.

Yep, lots of fun in coop. But the poor gun performance and crap armor and tiny health pool, plus the constant uptiering, means that when you load into a match in that thing, your side is basically down a BB and has one extra cruiser.

I did once. Uptiered to T10, once was enough. 

But thanks for the Odin at the price. An excellent deal, and a fun grind!
