Anyone think this is a good addition to the game?

 

 

I just ran into my first one and i have to say its melts ships faster than any other.  

 

It seems like its the Khark reincarnated at a longer range.

 

I sense many threads about this one comming up so thought i might as well kick it off.

 

And yes i will be adding it to my Cruiser list, since i kinda specialise in using them.

Generally: yes

Specificly: WG might want to test her more and make sure she is really balanced

Smolensk will be as crazy as Colbert. Though it'll be more smoke reliant, can't shoot over islands as Colbert.

I think Colbert and Smolensk make BB's absolutely pointless to play. 1 Volley every 26s vs 500 shells and within seconds.. triple fires..

 

I just had a Game with a 2 Colbert Division down at A, forcing me to turn away only to be heading into a  2 Smolensk Division... its was carnage All our BB's just Melted.. .. Its like CV rework all over again.. i'll sit out until like 8.3 when they change something to make the game enjoyable again.

I haven't had time to play for the past week, but I am really not encouraged to return to the game. I tend to play BBs as my main in randoms and I also tend to push aggressively. With such ships (especially in divisions) I may become one of the useless noobs staying at 15-20km from the battle, j**king off at the map border... I hope they release the Slava soon then...

These types of ships totally change the game. there is no pushing to 16km on islands until the Colberts/Smolensks are spotted, My game above with in a Conquerer my Super heal couldn't cope with the damage!.. Its like the CV rework all over again.. they've only tested the fun factor of the ships to play, and not the ships to play against. I know people will be rolling eyes now thinking oh a Conq player complaining about fires, but Conq is 26s reload, Colberts and Smolensks are terminal cancer with 4s reloads?,  With 2 in a division you put out 3 fires.. and straight away.. they are starting fires all over.. even with fire prevention!!.. they need to remove HE from these ships or lower the fire chance, Minotaurs had HE removed in testing for this exact reason!.. 

 

on Youtube there are video's on these ships of 300k+ games within 2 days of these ships being released.. Just like the CV rework again.

If we check here we can see the stats. Even with this quite low amount of battles, we still see the following trend:

> Smolensk has the highest average damage of all T10 cruisers (even including the quite broken battlecruiser Stalingrad);

> Colbert has the third place for avg. damage (after Smolensk and Stalingrad);

> Smolensk, Stalingrad and Colbert (and only them) have over 2K base exp. on average.

 

We already know what Stalingrad can do. The other two however seem to do on par with it or better. Sadly if we look at the history, such ships do not get any noticeable nerfs. We'll probably just have to learn to deal with them and hope not to encounter them that often in future. :Smile_sad:

Give it a few more weeks and you will have learnt how to counter a Smolensk, there fragility is not much more than a DD, any Mino, DM will wreck one in seconds if it is caught out of smoke or is radar’d,  as even a 20sec radar enough time to delete it.
