Trying to play some ships that I have mostly ignored. This one was bashed a lot when it was given out as a freebie but it seems to have a steady positive win rate. And great AA. Question is how to play her and what skills work for her. She seems kind of tanky when played right but I dunno. Any advice?

I would use her for operations. She is my next purchase for that purpose.

Good tanking ship and great for operations . Secondary Capt. Definatley something to think about . Mine is set aside for ops.  Full sec. Spec. 19 point Capt. on her.

P.E. benefited a lot from the rework, secondaries build to 8.5k now and it has loads of em.

hilarious in scenarios.

In random games it can hold it's own but in operations it's a beast earning tons of credits, FXP and CXP.

I mostly use her for operations as well but I really do like her. She does not have standard German tankiness though so watch out for that. She isn't fragile by any means but she's no Bayern s don't get into a close slugging match with her. Her high speed on T6 is absolutely spectacular and she is one of the big winners when it comes to secondaries after the rework. Her main battery is very underwhelming. Shells are small, penetration is poor, and dispersion is all sorts of bad and if you are using upgrades to buff secondaries it only gets worse. 

Honestly, PEF was always underestimated. If you come in thinking of playing her like a tanking German BB you'll be disappointed. She's more of a fast flanker. Remember that she is a BC not a BB and you'll be fine.

I got it for Ops, and with the rework she seems to have become a real terror with the longer ranged secondary.  Nice bonus since I enjoy playing her in Operations.

She is more defensive then offensive... She is surprisingly, Tanky...

Some use secondary build on her.. I rather recommend survivability.

This is not a long range attacker... The "pork Fried  Rice" is more mid range cruiser eraser...

  • In her tier, she can go toe to toe with BBs and cruisers...
  • In +2 situations... BBs... Not so much...

I would try to position myself within the 5km to 10km  range from a cap... If you can take a cap, then do so... The premise here is force the red ships to come to you... Your guns are more effective when ships, head towards you then kiting away from you.

That is the basic advice I can give...
