    Tallinn appears to be a monster.

    Ship Jesus? I literally said I take all his reviews with salt because his playstyle does not suit winning. Anyway, it's obvious my point are either being missed or people are just always going to disagree, so i will stop replying, if this hits live in this state Iook forward to curb stomping in it.

    I never said Russian bias once. I'm amused by how many people have jumped to the conclusion I did because I called a Russian ship too powerful.

    As for the Mainz comparison, let's leave that for when she's actually finalized shall we? Cause she's been in testing with a bunch of other Germans for...oh a very long time (Siegfried/Odin and Aegir among the others, some of which were announced literally over a year ago now) and Wargaming apparently doesn't want to release any of those Germans any time soon, instead announcing, testing, and going straight to an asap release for their shiny Soviet cruisers instead.

    Ffs, again, my point isn't that she's better than LIGHT CRUISERS, it's that she out competes the other HEAVY CRUISERS (for HE) while having excellent everything else, who cares if you need IFHE, four points is nothing. As for AA, I will take having 6 kilometer something range over 5.2 any day, fighter plane be damned, fighter planes do not stop drops, they kill planes post drop. As for concealment, Baltimore might have better but she's even weaker than a Hipper/Eugen unless you're skilled enough to make clever use of radar. Which is very difficult in her at the best of times ith the current meta. The others are CL's aside from Martell, who fits a completely different niche and while she performs well, will certainly not outperform this thing. I'm reacting this way because I have played the crap out of most tier 8 cruisers (except Balti as I personally disliked her) and some of the premiums as I do't have them. I will overperform in this ship, 100%. I have my stats publicly visible, not trying to be conceited here, but I do actually know what I am talking about is what I am trying to demonstrate. The Tallinn might not outperform some of the others in certain categories, but she by far offers the best overall package is my entire point that seems to be getting missed, she has the classic Wargaming powercreep issue of being able to do too much all on her own. The same issue Belfast had, Worcester had when first released, that Smolensk now has. The fact she's Russian (and not even originally Russian) makes this worse, but please note I did not claim Russian bias once in this entire thread, had she been any other nation I would have reacted the same way. Her AP is retardedly powerful, her armor is among the best for the tier 8's even with the frankly insignificant 25mm nerf (because being overmatched by 380's is meaningless when you're always fighting 406's+ anyway, the games where I can make use of Eugen's 27mm are really quite rare these days) and you can do trolly things with turtleback. And her HE is more than adequate, her AA suite will be long range, and she has radar and can mount hydro at the same time. And her concealment is very good for a tier 8 heavy cruiser. As I've said, this is too much for a single ship to have.

    The Tallinn will not get lol deleted constantly like the entire IJN line does is my point. The fact Tallinn even comes second to these ships for HE potential (never said she was better) is gross as she then also has the best AP, and radar, and hydro, and Soviet AA, and better brawling torps then the other cruisers, and better stealth then all other CA's except Mogami (not including CL's of course, which frankly includes Mogami actually.) All of this put together is too much.

    Yes, and Mogami and Ibuki are glass cannons with basically no armor. Hipper/Eugen hull has the armor to spam with impunity unlike those two.

    Mogami has a long reload too. She still has massive HE spam potential. Donskoi does with the same guns at tier 9, your point?

    Tallinn appears to be a monster.

    Except she won't just be a better Hipper. She's better than all the tier 8 cruisers. By quite a margin. Flamu brings up the ballistics for the AP in the video, that AP is better than Hindenburg AP at tier 10, Donskoi AP at tier 9, most other tier 9 AP as well. Now imagine this thing against tier 6's. The HE is no joke either, while yes she has less penetration, her alpha is much, much better as is her fire dpm than the Hippers, with only Mogami really beating it at tier 8, and Mogami is a true glass cannon, unlike this.

    Yes that CLEARLY goes all the way to the bow.

    Also Flamu did not say it was OP. And technically I didn't either, I just pointed out how much stronger it was than the other tier eights by outlining what was different (and both worse and better) between it and it's half sisters. Wait, no I'm saying it's OP XD Thing is, Flamu plays extremely passively as well, so I take all of his reviews with a big chunk of salt. (I've literally watched him lose so many games because he sits back and farms instead of applying damage where it's needed.)

    If they're both called the same thing then I can see why that would lead to confusion. Let us hope it's the German bow and not the Russian one. Cause a German hull receiving the Russian bow would be filthy for all manner of reasons.

    This is the main issue yes, though I am still convinced the HE will be too powerful on those guns as well. She's too close to Mogami in terms of HE output with a smaller fire chance sure, but she will live significantly longer than Mogami does, and who knows what the magic Russian dispersion will be doing to other ships even at mid range, where the Hipper hull can quite happily afford to be, unlike Mogami, she also outranges Mogami by slightly over 2km, which is why I was concerned about the the fact that Tallinn seem to do everything better than every other tier eight heavy cruiser. And he is a heavy cruiser, the BS performance of those guns makes sure of that. As I already said, stick her a t tier ten, with the heal and module slot, and THAT is what the Russians should have gotten instead of Smolensk, that would have been a refreshing idea for a tier ten premium CA. Also finally, let's compare her to the Mainz in testing. The Mainz offers two things as a German hybrid CL on the same concept as this, faster fire rate with much weaker guns, and old Eugen agility, that's it. In every other way this thing is just straight up superior. As for the 900m turning circle, it really isn't a big deal, like it really isn't. You're not going to be brawling in this unless you absolutely need to. It's a mid to long range ship with how good the AP is and how usable the HE is. And you have radar to keep DD's (which at tier 8 don't have 12km+ torps) away and hydro to spot the torps too. If you're worried about the turning circle with all those tools you're playing it wrong, simple as that.

    Not all the way to the tip of the bow, which is what Flamu suggested when calling it an icebreaker bow (what Moskva et al/ have.) The Hippers have it only a slight amount further along than their main belt.

    Murdered by her younger half sister. Et tu, Lützow?

    Really? Because the best guns of all tier eight cruisers doesn't seem like that would make her weaker than the others, especially considering that she also has the best armor of the tier 8 cruisers as she's an Eugen hull, plus the Russian superb lower bow armor, add to this, that her concealment is also among the best of all the non super light cruisers (with Mogami/Atago being the only exception, and Mogami armor is trash to balance that.) I also said to put her at tier 9, but then she gets access to a heal and the final module slot, which would make her too powerful at tier 9, so I suggested tier 10.This is what the USSR should have got instead of Smolensk. In any case, it's obvious she outperforms the other tier eights by some margin. Flamu was clearly half assing that game and still easily did 100k in half the match's potential full duration. If he'd not yoloed and the game was a longer, closer game, a 200k match would have been very easily achieved with minimal effort.
