Haha, why would anyone spend money on this ship? I didn't like Admiral Hipster and there are excellent trainers available! No need to buy that ship. Atago is much more fun.

I bought it first time it came out. Its a decent, if unremarkable cruiser. i don't regret buying it. i was going to keep the Hipper, but with the Eugen i could sell it to fund my Roon.

 

I'm sure collectors and history buffs will by it as well as people who appreciate a ship that isn't actually bad at anything. There are ships that do something better than the Eugen, but the Eugen doesn't do anything badly. As a predominantly cruiser player i found it a solid performer

I received the Prinz in a Christmas crate and its a solid ship. Where it especially comes in handy is for training german CA captains due to the camo(50% captain xp bonus). 

You wont do as much damage as a Kutuzov, but since AP is the primary ammo, the damage you do, sticks.

While very true.. the Atago cannot be used to train German captains...

If you want a fun german cruiser and battleship captain trainer, the Scharnhorst is a way better choice than the Eugen in any case.

 I can't get mine to work (Scharnhorst) yet - need to put some time and attention into her, but PE is easier but different to other cruisers I've played (only to Nurnberg in the German line so far)

Not to mention the amazing looks of Prinz Eugen. I think she is one of the best, if not the best, ship model we have in game (with either camo - I even like the GDI one).

Of course, she shares the same strength her sister ship Hipper has: she has no weakness. Just a well rounded heavy cruiser that does well (but not excellent) in any situation.

 

And, if you already own her, she is worth 11k doubloons.

 

edit: Thanks to her great turret rotation and 13 seconds reload, she can quickly switch targets during battle, which you kind of have to do anyway. This also trains the player for better situational awareness and less tunnel vision.

no thanks. 

 

it would be ok if it was a free ship. 

 

i sold my hipper, the moment i had the roon. Why would i spend money on its clone? Its a crappy ship.

But not so good deal as the tier 6+7 ships with their 50% discount giving ~500d/€. Eugen (and all tier 8's on discount) give like ~400d/€. Of course it's still better than what you would normally get.

Prinz Eugen is just about the most balanced and versatile cruiser in the game. Close range, long range, AP, HE, tools to deal with every other class, you name it, and all without being OP. Which of course just means everyone assumes it's boring and useless, such is the fate of jacks-of-all-trades.

 

And that's a shame because she's a very fun and supremely comfortable ship and a solid performer. Plus she looks gorgeous. I got one ages ago because I had no interest in any German cruisers T6+ except the Hipper class, don't care about its use as a trainer, just wanted to play it for its own sake and I don't regret it one bit.

 

But that's just me, she suits my playstyle. As others have said, there's basically nothing bad about her and nothing that will annoy or frustrate you while playing her. On the other hand, she probably has the best set of 203mm guns in the game, and they are very rewarding to use.

Des Moines would like to have a word with you :P

But I agree on the rest. Prime example of a "jack of all trades, master of none"-case.

Princ Eugen, with its sister is one of worst prforming CA in t8..and it is understandable:

 

- week DPm (AP only does dmg on perfect broadsie, one of weakest HE in game)

- THE WORST DMG DEALR of all t8 ca by stats (with its sister)

 

Kutuzov, Atago, Edinburg, martel, Mogami are all superior ships to her.....dont buy if not collector.....Kutuzov or atago will do the job of premium t8 ship much better

 

Nobody brings Eugen in ranked on turnaments....it shows his strenght, whle Chapaev and Kutuzov are manadatori and Atago good as flanker.

Here we go... "Stats prove this, ranked proves that". Stats only prove that most average players can't do well with a ship, and most people don't buy a ship just for competitive play. Tournament play has a forced meta that requires certain ship strengths anyway.

 

None of that means the ship can't be great fun to play in regular games if you enjoy that playstyle.

You don't bring Hipper or Eugen to competitive games because you want specialists in a 7v7 team-coordinated environment, no generalists.

That does not mean an all-rounder like the Hipper-class has no place in a 12v12 random game where she is very much capable to deal with any role you assign her to, and switch around them. Your BBs go down? Fine, Hipper can take some beating and dish out some raw dmg numbers. Your light cruisers fail? Fine, Hipper can hunt those DDs. Your DDs got sunk? Fine, Hipper can cuddle enemies inside a cap and knifefight them down.

She is not specialised on any of these tasks but she is very much okay with them.

offcourse....but if somebody is scanning for ship and dont know real state of ship posts like "it is great ship" can mislead him.

 

for somebody it can be fun, someones are collector.....but it is just one of weakest t8 cruisers shown by majority aka (stats).

 

still it does not mean it is not fun, or have fun playstyle....Atlanta is also fun (for some) but we can not say it is one of better cruisers on t7 for majority of peoples.

 

Same applys for KM one

I don't think that was 15JG52Adler's point, several people here claimed that the ship "has no weakness" and that there's "nothing bad about her", when the ship has the least amount of guns at T8, a long reload and low damage HE. The guns of a Hipper/Eugen are not scary.

 

In addition to that, the concealment of those two ships is pretty awful with nothing to really make up for it (like smoke on the Kutuzov).

 

If you find it fun, then great, good for you, but it's still a ship with significant weaknesses in certain areas compared to other T8 cruisers.

everything you said here stays, but still lets say Atago does it faster and better.....it has "heal" so it can take ore beating that Eugen, it has more HE dmg and stronger alpha so she kills dd faster, SHe burns BBS faster, also its AP are in most fights much better with better angle penetration, and she has much btter stealth and can play as DD....stealthtorp....

 

so it still stands it is WORST PREMIUM CRUISER on t8......and still for someones it can be funn

My highest ever damage game was in my Eugen, 194k, It was a Tier 8 game, and everyone under estimated me. There is nothing wrong with the ship if you play with care and patience. If you want to pew pew pew HE, sure there are ships that do that better.

Of course i have a higher average damage in my Edinburgh, that ship is a beast. I love the RN CLs. And i have never said that the Eugen was better than the Burgh. I don't think she deserves all the bad press, that's all. You don't like the Eugen, that's fine. i also appreciate that many want a ship that is the best at something. that's also cool. But when people complain about it, they wont accept that there are people who do like it, or who do well in it, If someone doesn't do ok in a Hipper of Eugen, it is an issue with the player not the ship. I statistically do better in a Fiji than a Belfast. Now i have an IFHE captain i will probably do better in the Belfast. I see the potential in the ship, the issue is me. I don't complain the Belfast is weak or ask people why they like it.

This is the one Tier 8 premium that would have needed the -50% discount to be desirable. The simple facts that she's a) the worst-performing Tier 8 premium and b) pretty much a slightly tweaked clone of the regular Hipper that brings nothing new to the table other than her gorgeous looks make her just far too expensive, even at 30% off. 28€ for a glorified reskin of a silver ship (with the usual premium ship perks), when more likely than not we'll soon get the Scharnhorst (which is everything the Eugen is not) for ~17.50€... not a good deal.
