Picked up Pommern.Put full secondary build with secondaries captain.only a few games so far but with hydro and the fact friendly torps cannot damage my ship figures to be a match for me.I like to brawl,which is one of the reasons I like co-op.Also have the iron cross camo from the German cv event.

Congrats.  Pommern seems to do well in co-op.  I'm not a BB player but I've been thinking the Pommern might be the next the coal ship I get.

Congrats on the Pommern, if you like brawling that ship is an absolute monster in co-op. Its alot of fun and a secondary build is the way to go for sure.

The Pommern is a good ship.  The only thing I don't like about the ship is the bad firing angles on the rear turrets.

Definitely a great pick for co-op, much more so than something like Yoshino/Azuma (although at least Yoshino has the torps) or Immelmann.

Secondary builds are arguably more valid in co-op because of the closer range and shorter battle length, and the diminishing benefits of concealment or an extra heal. The guns are also much more suited to close range rather than the longer range of randoms, and you have the hydro and torp combination. Probably the only things I’d say it has going against it in co-op are the turret angles (as already mentioned) and especially the longer reload.

That being said, I will eventually get it myself, but it’s slipped a little further down the priority list than it was at on release.

The best German Destroyers in the game are the Scharnhorst, Tirpitz and the Pommern. If you're not playing these ships as cap bullies you're doing it wrong. Now granted rushing to the front at the first of the battle will get you focused down like any DD caught in Radar. But if you wait and pick your battles from cover you can wreck ships up.

Scharnhorst was one of my first premiums and is one of my most played ships.Got tirpitz b on Black Friday and do very well with it.I figured Pommern was a natural fit for my play style .

Just picked up the Pommern.  Full meme secondary build.  Short of running across some overmatch guns, I don't sweat much in it.  Fun ship.

Pommern is at home in Co-Op, one of the safest, most effective Premium buys here.

[ ] Cheaper to run a Premium Ship than a Tech Tree one.

[ ] Swap in your favorite captain whenever.

[ ] Battleship staying power is simply supreme in Co-Op, if a ship is needed to carry a match, a half decent BB player will easily do it better than other ship types.  Not even a CV can carry as easily in Co-Op as a Battleship.  And German BBs have fantastic staying power here.

[ ] Brawl in confidence with protection, secondaries, and torpeduz at your disposal.

[ ] Respectably fast enough.

[ ] Like Alsace, she may not have the biggest, best guns, but she has 12 of them.  On the flip side is Tech Tree FDG.  FDG has faster firing 16" guns but she only has 8 of them, and RNG can screw her over hard.  Pommern has her 12-shell shotgun blast.

 

Her only real issue would be from the air, but since the Bot CVs in Co-Op can't hit anything, the threat of AP Bombers doing massive Citadel damage to Pommern and other German BBs isn't a real problem in this mode of play.

Pommern is the "screw I, I need to relax" ship in co-op. It has everything that a co-op player could ask for to drop-kick bot posterior, other than the DD advantages of speed and surface detection.

You have to try to have a bad game in Pommern in co-op.

This is not a disparagement. Pommern is awesome. The point is, she's a fantastic "had a bad day and need to chill" ship. Mucho main battery guns? Check. Secondaries? As good as they'll get, check. Torps? Yyyyep. Check. All present and accounted for. What's left? You. That's it. You add the last sprinkle of player agency. Pommern is the canvas. Charge in, pop hydro, focus your secondaries, and line up those torps.  Go paint something on it. Preferably, red bots' entrails.      :cap_cool:

Congrats! One of the best German BBs. I don't think I have had a "bad" game in mine yet. It's like a "Super Tirpitz". :Smile_playing:
