Shoot me that email Thanas? Back at home now.

Also, apparently the Tirpitz really, really needed 10.6 km secondaries? O_o
Oh WG, never change... (plz actually do change, your premium balance is hilariously bad sometimes).

Decided I'm going to try the French CLs/CAs and get the Minekaze up to lady Akizuki since I haven't played for a long time. Don't want to by That Guy who jumps straight back in to high tiers and has no idea how to boat, lol2ndary Tirpitz build or not...

My new handle (after the servers reboot) on the WG games is GruntyGinMan. Hit me up if anyone is interested.
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

Bismarck has one more secondary mount because WG, but otherwise identical - the key difference is that the Bismarck still has Hydroacoustic, which the Tirpitz doesn't. So the TIrpitz will remain a brawling god, just with hilariously overeffective secondary batteries for that hairy 6-10km zone outside torpedo range but at point-blank range for main batteries. The Bismarck will probably remain preferred in Ranked and competitive play because of HS.

Tirpitz with secondary build is completely OP now. It is the undisputed king below 10km and can even beat a kurfürst there now due to torps. Bismarck got its hydro nerfed, it is now standard cruiser hydro instead of german cruiser hydro.

Which is why you see few bismarcks in comp play (my clan has not ran it at all for two months now).

Was not aware of that nerf. That's... typically WG right now, unfortunately.
