Significant Tirpitz buff in 6.4

Recommended Posts

Just had my first post 6.4 match in the Tirpitz, and while it was a hard tier 10 ( some guy already had the tier 10 French cruiser Henri IV - sucked in it and died in first 3 minutes ) I earned 131 secondary hits, and was hitting DD's out at full range.  @Mesrith - which are the best slot 4 and 5 modules for the Tirpitz with a secondary build captain ( no CE skill )?  I currently have DC mod 2 in slot 4, and Conceal mod 1 in slot 5.

I use rudder shift on all of my battleships, as being able to dodge extra torpedoes and wiggle after firing is more valuable to me than fire/flood duration.  I have Concealment mod on my Tirpitz, but either choice is fine.

Second game in it since the patch hit and I got 240 secondary hits. I can't describe how ridiculous it is to have both torpedoes and fantastic secondaries combined. This thing is probably the best brawling BB in the game now.

+1

Only did 40K Damage 1st battle in it, but I kinda pushed it hard to see what it was capable of and got 2 kills both CQE and 153 secondary hits .... it really rocks now, and will sell Bismarck now moving that Captain up to the tier 10 German BB when I get it researched.

Yup.  especially since you know have the fire/flood combo going for you.  Secondaries catch something on fire as it closes, drop a spread and watch them give you broadsides or eat torps

Don't be in too much of a hurry to sell your Bismarck until you have seen the requirements for the Hood/Bismarck missions.

^ the only reason I have not sold my Bismarck yet.

I've not sold mine because I need might need it in comp. Kind of annoying since I want to advance the captain.

You don't have a Tirpitz, or do you want the sonar more than the torps?

He is talking about competitive play, where the hydro amongst other things, from what I understand, appear to be more important.

Specifically, Clan on Clan, organised competitive play.

To be honest I don't consider anything else competitive play. 

Judging by my own and others accounts of ranked (not to mention pub matches) talking about compitetive there is a stretch.

The Tirpitz was on sale this weekend so I bought it, played one game and hit "sell" on my Bismarck. I actually felt more confident when closing in than I did with the Bismarck due to having the torps. Previously I would try to stay at the 7 to 10 km range to stay out of range of (most) opponent's torps and secondaries. Now with 4 torps a side, I'm going in!

The Hood missions have been leaked and there are none that require the big B to complete them, just one per group that can only be done in the Hood (you don't have to do every mission in each group).
