New player here. Need the lowdown on Prussia

Recommended Posts

Prussian weapons essentially strip away crew off the target, and then board with their own over zealous, rabid attack hounds.  Has great internal synergy.  Them and the British are good starter forces.

Keep in mind that Prussian ships are very fast and somewhat fragile compaired to ships from other nations. However our battleships and carriers are very though ships.

Although the Prussian Navy is extremely potent at boarding, their firepower is not to be taken lightly. I usually board a few key vessels while shooting at the rest of the enemy fleet.

I would disagree with you on this point. I feel that Prussia is an intermediate skill level faction. You certainly can start with any one you like, but KoB is a much easier faction to start with and more forgiving. PE often win or lose big, but have fewer close matches than some other factions. Minus the skill and experience of playing for a while and you will likely lose most of your earlier games. I think FSA and KoB are the the two best main factions to start with. Less crazy combos that must happen in a particular order, less specialist weapons and less dense rules interactions to complicate play for new players; both are decently well-rounded factions. I think there is a place for picking what you think looks cool or how it will play (in your head), but I personally have more fun starting out something new where I don't regularly get my teeth kicked in.

well, I started with the Prussians. It does take a while before the start to understand the strengths of the fleet and in de beginning I really struggled against my KoB/Raj opponent. However, nowadays matches are pretty close indeed and our winrate is usually roughly the same.
