Hello everyone

Any clue about the date of release of the new Soviet Tier X premium BB? 

What kind of resources will require? 

I do not think she will be available for coal, should we expect to trade her for free XP? Or steel ? 

Could also become part of the NTC or Research Beaureu? 

All tips are welcome! 

Thanks

Hopefully never. This is one ship that deserves it's place in development heck.

Honestly I think the second version was not OP. The reduced number of repair party and the hull not particularly strong, make it only good for long range sniping.

Plus another nerf to gun velocity/dispersion is Always possible,

The issue is, if you can devastate everything from 17 km, why would you need durability? It's like saying CVs are fine, because they got a heal and their hull isn't as durable as a BB's. And testers showed, Slava still crapped on things in its range and performed well.

 

Lastly, the very gameplay concept tested was absolutely stupid and should not make it into the game. Yamato and Thunderer are maybe somewhat decent take on a BB that has comparably good long-range performance, but notably, Yamato still does well at mid range as it stays tanky if properly angled, while Thunderer lacks the insane pen and velocity to bring the stupidness of Slava. If a Thunderer shoots you from 20 km, you use your rudder and just dodge. If Slava shoots you, you are basically already toast.

Well in the game there are also DD that can dev strike you from very long range. And any ship class has its own counter. BB can be targeted by DDs and CVs so I don't really see it as a big problem. 

What is important how ever is to make the SLAVA (and any new ship) interesting because of a particular feature but balanced by the right sets of weakness.

And that's the problem, Slava didn't have any.

Then go play a Thunderer or Yamato if you want a ship that is balanced with decent long range performance.

 

Also, if you get devstruck by DD torps from across the map, you should maybe consider course changes every now and then. You have multiple minutes to evade torps at 20 km. Slava shells meanwhile go there in maybe a quarter of one.

I do not entirely agree. In current state she has some weakness. As I said before WG can still nerf the AP velocity or accuracy.

And that still would not matter overly much if it retains the accuracy formula which is simply broken.

 

Hopefully the Slava will be forgotten and die out somewhere far away from the live servers.

Hi!

 

Sorry I was on a long vacation and a business trip afterwards, but now I'm back (yay). Currently we don't have any news for this ship but you can be sure that we'll let you know once we've made a decision about how to proceed with this ship. There was no decision made yet whether this ship will be implemented or not - and thus also no decision yet about the kind of resources it would require to get it.

 

Greetings, Crysantos

Strike at the Soviet Orbital Shipyards delayed the Battlestar Slava's construction? Seriously, could we not? With Kremlin and Smolensk around I think we're all balans'd out here...

I dont have problem with Slava.  I'm really looking forward to this ship. Need counter play against OP HE spammer cruisers ( Smolesk, Colbert,  Henry), Slava will be good role for this.

I think OP HE spammer cruisers more harmful to game, than one very good BB.

Disagree heavily. HE spammers are not fun to play against at times (and depending on ship), but a BB with all of these tools? [edited]no. Let the Slava burn in a hole and never be introduced.

 "HE spammers are not fun to play against at times "

 

Why?

 

Based on the this Reddit post, Slava will be premium ship.
