Play it like a normal BB? It has the most accurate BB guns in the game, cruiser like handling and improved heal compared to pleb (silver) BBs.

Make it work, its not that hard...

I'm by no means the best BB player,  like you learning. 

 

I play mine like my Alaska. 

 

Don't rush in

See where the danger is, Smol etc

Start of around 16K

Push in if you can and have support

Switch between HE and AP 

Be prepared to kite away

 

Yeah it's a bigger version of my Alaska. 

 

But I've not perfected any of my BB yet apart from T8 so take all that with a pinch of salt. 

 

Maybe a better player will come along with some additional tips.

I am really enjoying the Thunderer I play her in a hit and run style, pushing forwards with the cruisers relying on her very accurate guns (by Battleship standards) to do as much damage to the enemy cruisers before kiting away whilst healing up and focusing on any ship pursuing me. 

 

The Thunderer burns easily and it doesn't have the Conqueror's crazy heal so it doesn't like soaking up huge amounts of damage so bow taking isn't really recommend, it's perfect for kiting though. In my experience at least, you want to keep moving and as long as you stay well angled you can withstand a surprising amount of return fire. 

 

Considering the fact she has accurate guns and a decent reload speed well aimed shots are suitably rewarded, broadside  battleships and cruisers will get paddled. The HE is also very effective for dealing with bow tanking enemy's, and whilst she's not really designed for dealing with DDs you can certainly punish them if they get spotted. Don't be afraid to switch ammo types! 

 

Its for these reasons I would say she's a hit and run ship you have good speed and good guns but you don't want to brawl, you will want to control the engagement to be on your terms to get the best out of her.

I would say the accuracy increase makes the Thunderer a better long range HE spammer but, as others have said, the AP Is the ammo of choice in most situations. 

The Thunderer can brawl but it’s probably best at 14km or more where you can use that rudder shift to angle in between salvos.

Yes, thats how you play any BB, prefrebly get to the border opposite to the enemy location and stay there in hopes the enemy suck more than your team.

It doesnt really have the tools to push in

32mm,

no hydro,

no radar,

no spooDBeast,

no reload boost,

no spotter to blap HE spammers in smoke or behind islands,

like (new) conq citadel is above waterline

Well, if you wanna shoot HE, then Conqueror is definetely the better ship for that. But with AP, Thunderer will outperform Conqueror every day.
