  1. This is what I have right now. I have replaced manual secondaries for concealment for two reasons, Firstly, I need my secondaries shooting from both sides... just in case we got some heroic destroyer that suddenly got brave. Secondly, because Scharn 13.7km detection and Tirpitz 12.9 which is utter bulls***t levels of sneaky! This is what my playstyle is- I use both ships to get as close as possible without getting detected in order to maximize the effectiveness of my inaccurate guns then is asses the situation. My intention is always that I don't play for objectives, but rather prevent the enemy from going for theirs. If the situation is favourable, I jump out with the tirpitz and ambush the enemy, causing chaos and confusion while I bully the enemy into abandoning their carefully laid plans. The scharnhorst on the other hand, I am being more cautious as it can't handle hits from the front. I hit the enemy from edge of cover, like a cruiser does, and only move out once the enemy is occupied. What I've noticed is a consistent pattern of reactions to both my ships. While people react to the tirpitz like "OH SH**T! WHERE DID HE COME FROM? RUN!", on the other hand when people see a sharnhorst at close range and be like "WTF?!? SCHARNHORST? SINK HIM NOW!" Why do people react so differently to both ships? I've seen Yamatos running terrified from my Tirpitz while in a Scharnorst I've had Tier 5 battleships try to take me head on while I often WON engagement against tier 9s. These are some of the most dangerous close range battleships of their respective tiers, both have a 6km "middle finger" zone of pain and suffering to anyone dumb enough to allow himself to be approached by one. Is it really the meta of where players of any tier lower than 8 just don't know their ships? Or just don't care? You can also see from the screens that I much more successful in a tirpitz than I am in a scharnhorst. But I used them mostly for run and moneymaking. Annyways, I digress, Since this is my first 19pt captain, I would like to hear your oppinion. Would you make any changes to support your aforementioned playstyle?

    Gold Fever on Scharnhorst with B

    Hi All, Not sure if this is right.....I got a Scharnhorst B in November....this Scharnhorst mission popped up, but it will not allow me to do it in the B version....is that right?
  3. The SMS Scharnhorst, flagship of Vice-Admiral Maximilian Graf von Spee's East Asia Squadron, was sunk on 8 December 1914 during the battle of the Falkland Islands. Her wreck was discovered 105 years later, almost to the day. She lies at a depth of 1610 meters, about 180 km southwest of the capital city of the Falklands. There must be a ton of stuff about this on the net already, so I'll just post a link to the first BBC article I found! https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-50670743

    Scharnhorst - a good pick?

    So, I got one of those 2 day rental premium ship things, and it was the Scharnhorst. Whilst I'm not great in this ship, I'm slowly learning, just had an ok game (i guess?) with about 60k damage and 1mil potential damage tanked. Is this a good premium to buy?

    HMS Belfast - eure Eindrücke

    Moin, heute ist mein absolutes lieblings Schiff nach langem Warten endlich rausgekommen *_* . Leider bin ich derzeit etwas skeptisch: sie verliert unheimlich schnell an HP. Eine Salve von ner Tirpitz oder Scharnhorst reicht aus, damit sich die Belfast den Meeresgrund anschauen kann. Was haltet ihr von diesem majestätischem Schiff? Gruß ID_79 PS: Ich suche einen maritimen Clan also könnt ihr mich gerne anschreiben ;)

    Bluepill me about the Bismarck

    So here's the deal: I just researched Bismarck and I'm now saving up for it to then put my secondary captain on it who's currently on the Scharnhorst... because of course he is. But here's the thing, looking at Bismarck i honestly don't know if it's really better than Scharnhorst for close range brawling, i mean Tirpitz sure but Bismarck? Yeah it has one 105 per side more but Scharnhorst has one that rotates 180 C° in the rear making up for that and yeah Bismarck has one twin 150 turret more but Scharnhorst has two single 150 to make up for that and all of that doesn't take into consideration that Scharnhorst has torpedoes. So what does Bismarck bring to the table other than secondary range and is it worth giving up on torps? tl;dr: why Bismarck over Scharnhorst for close range fights? Thanks in advance -t. someone who has no idea what he's doing (the accompanying picture is completely unrelated to the topic above and exists purely to represent the author's confusion)

    Scharnhorst und Graf Spee generft?

    Hallo Wargaming Team, Ich bin einfach nur noch genervt von euren Änderungen am Spiel, meine Lieblings Schiffe die Scharnhorst und Graf Spee und evtl die Tirpitz sind nicht mehr das was sie waren. Ich bin ein ziemlich gute Schlachtschiff Kapitän und mache mit diesen Schiffen auch nichts Falsch, sie machen aber überhaupt keinen Schaden mehr, AP kann man ganz im Hafen lassen und wenn man HE schießt lachen die anderen über einen. Ich finde es einfach nur traurig, da es meine Lieblinge waren und jetzt einfach nur noch im Hafen verstauben.... Habe sie heute nochmal gespielt und ich war kurz vorm ausrasten, denn jeder Kreuzer von Tier 6 bis Tier 8 macht im Zweikampf mehr Schaden. Ich habe für die Scharnhorst Geld bezahlt und ihr ändert einfach das Schiff. Bei der Graf Spee bin ich mir nicht ganz Sicher ob gekauft oder Freigeschaltet. Bitte passt sie wieder an, als Beispiel: Die Hood die nachträglich in Premium Shop gekommen ist, macht genau den Schaden die die Scharnhorst gemacht hatte und auch die Genauigkeit war so ungefähr. Mit freundliche Grüßen Ps: Schaut euch vielleicht nochmal den Friedrich der Großen an, da habt ihr wohl auch noch etwas zuändern.

    Gneisenau Batterien

    Hey ich hätte ne frage und zwar warum hat denn die Gneisenau 3 Zwillingsbatterien und keine Drillingsbatterien so wie sie es wirklich hatte ? Die Scharnhorst hat welche bekommen aber warum denn dann nicht das Schwesterschiff das is doch total dumm , zudem kommt ja noch das die Zwillingsbatterien mehr schrotflinten sind die nur streuen

    BUFF SCHARNHORST PLS

    Took my Scharnhorst out recently to grind the 4th stage of the GamesCom mission. Accidentally played random instead of coop, did ~120k damage, dodged torps and other unpleasantness. So far so good. However, according to Yuro, the Scharnhorst comes with a quality sound system which allows for torpedo beat combos. I'm missing this sound system on my Scharnhorst however, so you better be introducing it back to the ship with the next patch WeeGee, or i'll be demanding refunds. Also, it prints only credits but no reichsmarks, you might wanna look into that. Kappa.
  11. Hallo liebe Leute, ich hätte einen Szenariovorschlag für das WG-Team. Falls es ihn schon in dieser Art gibt oder ich einen Thread übersehen habe, bitte ich um Nachsicht. Ich hoffe auch, dass ich ihn dieser Abteilung richtig bin. Dieser Thread ist als Gedankenexperiment und Ideensammlung gedacht. Meine Idee wäre ein an das reale Unternehmen Cerberus angelehntes Szenario. Zur Erinnerung: Die Rückführung der schweren deutschen Schiffe Gneisenau, Scharnhorst und Prinz Eugen durch den Ärmelkanal wurde von der deutschen Propaganda als Sieg verklärt, obwohl es nur ein gut geplanter und mit viel Glück gelungener Rückzug von den Liegeplätzen an der Atlantikküste war. Dennoch bietet das Szenario m.E. genug Möglichkeiten für ein spannendes Szenario. Ich habe bei der Idee dazu großen Wert darauf gelegt, dass der Programmieraufwand möglichst gering zu halten ist. Zum Glück hat die Dunkirk-Mission uns schon viele Elemente beschert, die man für eine solche Mission nutzen könnte. AI-gesteuerte Torpedoboote Küstenartillerie Minenfelder und Minentreffer Anfliegende Feindflugzeuge Zudem sind die meisten Fahrzeuge für dieses Szenario bereits als fertige Modelle im Spiel, so dass auch hier viel wiederverwendet werden kann (wobei man darüber streiten kann, ob man aus historischen Gründen eine weitere Scharnhorst als Gneisenau mitführt). Wichtig: Diese Mission ist nicht für die schweren Schiffe gedacht. Es macht m.E. wenig Sinn, eine "Schlachtschiffmission" daraus zu machen - die Hauptartillerie kam kaum zum Einsatz. Vielmehr würde ich mein Augenmerk hier - wie bei Dunkirk - auf die Eskorten legen. Sprich: Eine Mission für die Zerstörer, mit der man mit etwas künstlerischer Freiheit auch eventuelle Premiums (z.B. T61) promoten könnte. Die Aufgaben wären Absicherung der schweren Schiffe gegen Flugzeuge und Torpedoboote wie in der Dunkirk-Mission. Interessante Eckpunkte aus Spielersicht (nicht unbedingt der des Historikers) für das Szenario wären z.B.: Sicherung bei zunehmend schlechter Sicht (Dämmerung) Sicherung während eines Stillstandes (Minentreffer auf Scharnhorst und Gneisenau) Verlangsamung der zu schützenden Schiffe bei Treffern Zeitlimit, bevor britische Verstärkung herangeführt wird Was für Belohnungen könnte das Szenario bringen? Neben einem Kapitän und den üblichen Gratifikationen dachte ich z.B. an eine einfache Sondertarnung für die "Schwestern". Was denkt Ihr? Ich freue mich über konstruktive Ideen, Vorschläge und weiteres Brainstorming. Ich bin mir sicher, dass hier viele Enthusiasten sind, die mit ihrem Wissen dazu beitragen können (Hinweis: Die Standardwerke von John Deane Potter und Bekker habe ich natürlich gelesen)
  12. Hi, I am struggling to finance all the ships I have researched by the time I got the experience to unlock them. Thus I figured I would like to buy a premium ship to speed things up vastly. My question is, what ship does earn the most credits in an average game ( I am not that great of a player ) when all factors such as shell-cost, repair-cost etc are considered? I lean to towards Alabama or Tirpitz however I am not set on any particular nation as this will be a ship ONLY to farm credits, the crew training aspect is secondary at best.
  13. Heute zeigen wir im Replay die Scharnhorst. Eine spannende Runde bis zum Schluss!
  14. Guten Abend Kapitäne, ich hab im Internet dazu schon gesucht aber nichts gefunden: weiß jemand welche Stats die Arktis-Tarnung der Scharnhorst hat? Ist es eine normale Tarnung oder gibt es etwas spezielles, wie z.B. bei der erspielbaren Tirpitz-Tarnung, die dann mit 100% free xp um die Ecke kam. Ich finde die Tarnung persönlich optisch jetzt nicht sooooo genial, habe die Woche auch einiges zutun und frage mich da gerade, inwiefern ich den Schlaf zurückstellen möchte . Danke schon mal für die Hilfe, Grüße : )
  15. Please take 50 minutes of your life to watch this great documentary. No flash bang reenactments here, just the story told by eye witness accounts of those who were there, and the steady hand of legendary BBC broadcaster Ludovic Kennedy on the tiller.
  16. Hello everyone. I'm considering to purchase one of the current premium ships on discount. I'm interested on purchasing a DD or a BB as I already got a CA. The main options will be these: Lo Yang: Pros: Started playing DDs and I'm ejoying it. Can be used to train PA dd line. Good destroyer for ranked season. Cons: Scharnhorst has the same price. The normal PA line plays a bit different because of deep water torpedoes. Scharnhorst Pros: BB/CA hybrid. Use as a Trainer as for KM BB captains. Better price than Tirpitz. Cons: Cannot be used in this ranked season. Tirpitz: Pros: Use as a Trainer as for KM BB captains. Can be used for ranked seasion. Cons: Worst price than Scharnhorst. However, I'm open to any recomendation. Thanks in advance.

    "Double-purchasing" Premium ships

    Hey Community, I just wondered if I would get 9500 Dubloons if I would purchase the Scharnhorst bundle (Scharnhorst, slot, 30 days premium, flags) when I already got the Scharnhorst from before. I would like to get the Atlanta btw. Thank you for your answers, Staubkappe
  18. right...so i just started playing wows for about 2 weeks (here and there), after i just quited wot...new premiums every single day, and no other content, plus the very balanced heat spamming russian meds, just destroyed the game for me. now i start playing with the german BBs and IJN CAs plus a bit later i'll start the IJN BBs and german CAs...for start i'd like to get one premium ship mainly for training purposes and some credits...but i just can't decide which one to buy between scharnhorst and tirpitz. I keep watching youtube videos and forum articles on them but no specific info on which would be a better ship for the money i would spend on it. until i heard that scharnhorst has kind of a special matchmaking, as in it's most of the time top tier, but when i check the stats on wg's pedia, it has the normal mm...so is it just a thing of the normal tier 7 matchmaking, as in all tier 7 ships get mainly top tier matchmaking, or is it something particular to scharnhorst. Thanks for any answers you might give me.
  19. Hey guys, I would like to buy one of these two german battleships, can you recommend me saying also why? P.S. The cost isn't a problem
  20. Bonjour à toute la communauté, Comme vous devriez l'avoir compris je cherches des conseils et des avis concernant l'achat d'un de ces 2 cuirassés. Et entre les deux mon cœur balance, j'ai bien parcouru les différents sujets mais sans y trouver les réponses que je cherches. J'hésite à investir dans l'un ou l'autre,sachant que je suis un joueur de DD, que les cuirassés "standards" ont un reload et une vitesse trop lente pour ma manière de jouer, c'est donc tout naturellement que je pensais me lancer dans la branche allemande (les BB j'en tire rien pour info) En gros, je veux faire du ranked sans avoir a grind une branche complète, j'aimerai suivre mes potes en T7,8 et 9, je souhaite posséder un cuirassé qui me convienne et avec lequel je pourrais grind plus facilement mon commandant et j'ai un peu de thunes à mettre dans Wows. Si le warship conseillé est opé c'est un + (d'facon me faut au moins ça vu mon niveau avec autre chose qu'un DD,les tanks ou bateaux opé je dois être le seul joueur a faire de la m***de avec ces trucs). Donc le débat est ouvert ! Tirpitz ou Scharnhorst ? D’après la théorie du Highlander,il ne pourra en rester qu'un... Merci d'avance aux Capitaines qui voudront prendre un peu de leur temps pour me conseiller et m'aider dans mon choix.
  21. I play scharnhorst in ranked and i think that i have made some wrong choices in my captain build. Now i use: Preventative Maintenance Adrenaline rush, High alert. Vigilance, Basics of Survivability Concealment Expert, Fire prevention. From what i saw Fire prevention doesn't help. would be better to switch fire prevention for Advanced Firing Training or manual AA? Also would you think that an all secondary build is more viable for ranked???

    Scharnhorst income

    Hi all, I just played a somewhat decent match, tho it was a defeat, I was a bit surprised by the income being low, or at least I felt it was a bit low, considering damage done and targets that the damage was done against. If fellow players or WG could just tell me roughly should it have been higher income or not, I would appreciate it. Account is currently on premium, Scharnhorst had it's premium camo on. (tho in description, it does not say it actually increases income). Thanks!
  23. The Scharnhorst is easily one of my favourite ships. I have played her a lot lately, and I have been following a lot of threads on this forum, in order to come to grips with my main question regarding this awesome ship: Just how am I supposed to handle her guns? When do I use AP, and when do I use HE? I was in a shoot-out with a Bismarck and a Hipper this very morning, and kept switching between ammunition types, and after the battle I looked at the result screen. On the Bismarck: 23 hits with HE for 11 000 damage, 7 hits with AP for 7000 damage. On the Hipper: I don't recall the exact numbers, but the AP damage was surprisingly low compared to that of the HE shells. Possibly due to some overpenetrations, I guess, but still. This is more or less typical for how my battles in the Scharnhorst tend to turn out. Unless I can get some AP citadel hits on cruisers, there is no real consistency in how much damage is done with AP and HE respectively. I have had some success with lobbing HE right and left and hoping for fires, but then again, there have been those games where a few good AP salvoes have made the big difference. Quite simply, I don't see a pattern and I have no basis for a clear ammunition choice. I am tempted to try shooting AP only for a dozen games or so, trust to RNG as the great equalizer, and see how that turns out. Meanwhile I am starting this thread; although the matter has been discussed before, with lots of good advice from many forumites, I feel that it deserves a recap. The ship has been in play for quite a while now, and there must be a lot of accumulated experience to tap from!

    First Scharnhorst impressions

    So, the wait is over! Just took her out for my first match, sadly I could not play more gotta run to work. My very first impression, it is a sexy looking beast. Looking at the stats I immediately saw that AA (especially close range) is lacking so having only a 10point captain - didn't play german cruisers at all - I went for AFT to try and boost it a little. To the battle now: long wait line, about 400BBs in line (yes we all knew that ), and then finally a game. Us 3 Scharnies against 2 + other BBs. With flags, ship accelerates nicely and handles very decently (especially with rudder upgrade), I was pleasantly surprised when I managed to out-accelerate a US TB spread eating only 2 of 6 (I was standing still). Bow on, the ship feels tanky at least when it comes to T7 stuff so no problems there. Guns... meh! even though I chose the reduced dispersion mod, it still kinda suffers from occasional terrible spreads. Didn't really feel like a cruiser killer to me, you have to time your shot really well against broadsides in order to do damage - especially against BBs. Overall I didnt really have a good game, just about 1,5k base xp and ~60k damage I was just taking her for a spin and trying out tactics. I think the ship has potential and as soon as the Scharnie craze settles down and we find her true strenghs it will be a blast to behold and play! PS: remember guys I only had one game, this is just a very very first and stressed impression due to not wanting to be late for work haha
