Finally picked her up. I'm kind of a thrifty shopper so I finished all the directives up to 18. I had enough spare gold I have horded to pay for directive 19. I had to pony up roughly $5 dollars USD ( ironically like the Benham, pure coincidence ) and tadaaaa there she was sitting in port. I had enough coal built up I picked up Gunter Lujens. 

My impression so far. 

She is what I have heard and read. A super Scharnhorst. 

The pro's I have discovered, awesome concealment, fast turning main turrets, nimble for a T8 BB, nice secondary's, HYDRO!!!

The spots I need work on is much like the Scharnhorst she is a battlecruiser type BB. So no picking fights with legit BB's when bottom tiered. Angle, angle, and more angle!

Over all, I'm glad I got her.

Having hydro and torps is a massive gamechanger compared to Bismarck and Scharnhorst, I've found. I played a game in Scharn last night, hoping I'd like her now that I enjoy Odin, yet just found that I missed Odin.

At one point I was about 5km off from a DD's smoke, having to maneuver between 2 islands to turn around and flee. Odin, I'd have charged the smoke and likely killed both. Scharn... I was blind, and so had to just run, instead baiting and wasting their torps, but the moment to strike was already gone.

Is CE skill really better to have than FP & AFT?

To me, CE is a must on every ship except CV’s. That is just my personal preference. It drops to 12 km surface detection.

I have neither the Bismarck or the Tirpitz. To me the Odin is a good utility BC (battle cruiser). 
It has torpedos like the Tirpitz. Sonar like the Bismarck. Rapid for T8 turret traverse and reload. I picked DE because when she is bottom tiered, there will be more HE usage when dealing with approaching BB’s or kiting away from them. I smacked some lower tier DD’s pretty good today next to a cap. So far no regerts.

Sums her up well, more or less. Same guns as Scharnhorst, but she gets the hydro and secondaries of a T8+ KM BB. She may have low health, but she has basically all the fun tricks BBs can get short of a reload booster and speed boost.

So 13.1 vs 12....

4 fires vs 3.....

My odin uses my GK captain with FP instead of CE....

I don't think I have any secondary brawling battleships rocking CE as I favor 3 fires and I'll be in view range anyways...

That’s cool. Like I said, just my preference. I read Dolphin_Princess comment one time about in the current meta 2ndary BB’s may not be always the best way to go. Besides the Odin is a wee BB compared to it’s T8 brethren. Especially if it is bottom tiered. That was my reasoning for CE.

I find if you sorta hide part ofvypurself and make sure your not doing more than 1 v 1, Odin holds it's own.

You get into trouble fast with more than 2 shooting at you, and your secondaries aren't strong enough to deter bbs.
