?The Karlsruhe is expected to be an improvement from the Kolberg. However, while the guns can do sufficient damage for once, they still lack range. One is expected to be outranged by other cruisers and take moderate damage before they can get into range to retaliate. The torpedo armament of a double launcher on each side is pitiful compared to the other cruisers since it lacks the speed to do hit-and-run attacks. It has decent protection, but still can fall easily since the armor does little against HE shells. However, due to its inferiority compared to other light cruisers, it has earned the nickname "Garbage-ruhe" since it is well below the expectations that the Phoenix and Kuma have set.+When she was released in [[Ship:Update 0.5.0.3|Update 0.5.0.3]], ''Karlsruhe'' was unquestionably the worst Tier IV cruiser in the game. She's had quite a number of buffs in the intervening patches, and has been beefed up enough that she is now competitive within the tier ranges she sees. She also benefits — like all Tier IV ships — from restrictive matchmaking that caps the ships they see at Tier V.
  
?Despite this, a savvy captain will know to pick and choose his targets in this ship. Firing on a battleship early on is not recommended whatsoever as it draws attention that the Karlsruhe cannot withstand. The best bet is to pick off lower tier cruisers, and if no such targets are present, destroyers. Despite the small odds, remember you can launch four torpedoes on either side of the ship, and inexperienced players who try to stand still in fog will become sitting ducks. While the guns themselves wont guarantee massive damage to battleships, they can give other cruisers and destroyers a wallop per shell. Thus, when firing at your fast-moving targets, fire your guns individually instead of all at once, this not only helps you gauge where to aim but also increases the odds that at least one shell will hit its mark.+''Karlsruhe'' is an improvement on ''[[Kolberg]]'' in nearly every way that matters. She is a touch faster than her predecessor, gains a moderately decent torpedo armament, has more health, and moves from 105mm guns to 150mm ones. However, while her guns are capable of sufficient damage, they still lack range. Even when fully researched, ''Karlsruhe''’s main battery range is firmly behind all other Tier IV cruisers in the tech tree save Russian ''[[Svietlana]]''. She has decent enough armor protection to fend off most lighter enemy units that she encounters when angled, but must still be wary of showing her broadside to enemy battleships (at all ranges) and cruisers (at medium and close range). Captains must also make sure not to draw attention early in a match where ''Karlsruhe'' can be punished by opposing battleships while in open water with no cover.
  
?Even with her average speed, she is rather decent in turns for her size, and can sidewind her way around incoming torpedoes and shells given the right motions are made.+Her AP is quite good — a defining trait of the German cruiser line that will become more pronounced as captains continue playing these ships — and her HE is sufficient for killing enemy destroyers. ''Karlsruhe'' is best played as a cruiser and destroyer hunter. She is the first German cruiser to gain access to {{Hydroacoustic Search}}, which has a much longer range than other nations' hydro. This allows her to actively hunt destroyers who might be camping in smoke while trying to evade detection. Her rudder shift and turning radius give her excellent maneuverability in close quarters or when dodging incoming torpedo salvos, another trait that underscores her destroyer-hunting abilities.

 +Availability of researchable upgrades for ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is as follows:

Karlsruhe — German Tier IV cruiser.

One of the most powerful light cruisers of World War I. The ship's artillery and torpedo armament was powerful for her size. She had a decent speed and was as good as similar ships of rival navies in terms of armor.

Player Opinion

Performance

When she was released in Update 0.5.0.3, Karlsruhe was unquestionably the worst Tier IV cruiser in the game. She's had quite a number of buffs in the intervening patches, and has been beefed up enough that she is now competitive within the tier ranges she sees. She also benefits — like all Tier IV ships — from restrictive matchmaking that caps the ships they see at Tier V.

Karlsruhe is an improvement on Kolberg in nearly every way that matters. She is a touch faster than her predecessor, gains a moderately decent torpedo armament, has more health, and moves from 105mm guns to 150mm ones. However, while her guns are capable of sufficient damage, they still lack range. Even when fully researched, Karlsruhe’s main battery range is firmly behind all other Tier IV cruisers in the tech tree save Russian Svietlana. She has decent enough armor protection to fend off most lighter enemy units that she encounters when angled, but must still be wary of showing her broadside to enemy battleships (at all ranges) and cruisers (at medium and close range). Captains must also make sure not to draw attention early in a match where Karlsruhe can be punished by opposing battleships while in open water with no cover.

Her AP is quite good — a defining trait of the German cruiser line that will become more pronounced as captains continue playing these ships — and her HE is sufficient for killing enemy destroyers. Karlsruhe is best played as a cruiser and destroyer hunter. She is the first German cruiser to gain access to Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.), which has a much longer range than other nations' hydro. This allows her to actively hunt destroyers who might be camping in smoke while trying to evade detection. Her rudder shift and turning radius give her excellent maneuverability in close quarters or when dodging incoming torpedo salvos, another trait that underscores her destroyer-hunting abilities.

Karlsruhe has come a long way since she was released, and the current iteration has risen above much of the well-deserved hate she drew in her original incarnation. Captains who remember the ship with disgust are encouraged to try her again... they'll be surprised at how playable she's become.

Pros:

  • First German cruiser with torpedoes.
  • Solid armor for a Tier IV cruiser, will shrug off AP rounds from same tier & lower tier destroyers and cruisers.
  • Main battery shell damage is vastly improved over Kolberg.
  • If it gets close enough, a skilled captain can land repeated citadels on other same tier cruisers.
  • Earns access to Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) upon unlocking Hull (B).

Cons:

  • Shorter range than most Tier IV cruisers.
  • Top speed is still fairly low for a cruiser (27.5 knots).
  • Torpedoes are ineffective at long range due to the small quantity of them.
  • While armor can deflect armor piercing shells when angled, high explosive shells will still do sufficient damage.

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Karlsruhe is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) to add an additional torpedo launcher on each side, extra health, fractionally more AA, and improved rudder shift time. Research of this module unlocks progression to Konigsberg.
  • Torpedoes: The H8 torpedoes hit harder and travel faster and farther, but reload 11 seconds slower; Hull (B) must be equipped before they can be installed.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to FKS Type 4 mod. 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
Unlock Hull (B) first — the extra torpedoes are a huge upgrade to her firepower, and the access to Hydroacoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) makes her valuable as a destroyer hunter — then invest in the H8 torpedoes. Save the range upgrade for last; Karlsruhe’s shell ballistics make long-range shots very difficult to land consistently against anything but slow-moving battleships.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Karlsruhe are as follows:

Commander Skills

Key skills for Karlsruhe commanders include Priority Target, Expert Marksman, Demolition Expert, and Concealment Expert.

Consumables

Karlsruhe can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.
