yep, played one and made a vid on youtube. my 4 German Battlecruisers ran into and destroyed some old British battleships, then encountered the bit grand fleet (probably emergency activated by AI) and survived. due to the battered stated of the BCs i had to emergency activate a division of BBs as well to complete the shore bombardment mission objective. youtu.be/nq0bmv8h0tE?t=56s
Freshly started a North Sea 1914-18 campaign. The first major fleet action happens in this scenario. At this stage like the in-game campaign description says, it is more about attrition. Sink a few DDs here, one or two BCs there, and when the Grand fleet sorties, the focus is to damage them and maybe sink a BB or 2 while at it but not to push it. Because as the underdog, the german High Seas fleet simply doesn't have the numbers to dominate.
P.S. The early war german DDs are kinda lackluster compared to their successors evidently, as flotilla attacks lack some serious punch and run outta steam pretty quick... tis historically correct I reckon.
