So I'm at rank 9 currently and boy oh boy am I having fun.

 

Just had a lovely time in my Yammy going up against 3 Smolensk and a Thunderer  ... did I mention THREE SMOLENSKS!

Game before that was 2, before that was 2 ... before that was 3 .... before that ... you guessed it, 2 .... GREAT SUCCESS.

 

So THANK YOU Wargaming for making this wonder ship a coal ship ... would have been terrible if it was a steel ship.

Rank was already great without Smolensks and CVs but now it's 1000% more better. ("more better" is terrible grammar, please don't use it").

 

Hope you all are having a great rank season as well

I agree with your main point but I disagree with locking ships behind the steel wall

Smolensk is toxic by nature. Tho im still waiting for RN CL's with HE. You know, since the spreadsheets says Smolensk is fine, HE Mino must also be fine, yes? :Smile_teethhappy:

 

Also. Dare to shoot under the waterline and Smolensk tend to go boom.

imagine having the guts to say on stream, in front of 3k people: "Sure, smolensk is unfun to play against, but all it does is farm damage, it has no real impact on the game"

I mean, that's why all those clans in CBs and players in ranked choose it. Right? Cos it has no impact on the game. Right? Right?

*edit*

Stalingrad

HIV

Minotaur (Radar)

I guess if you are good at blindshooting, you could try Hindenburg with spotter plane, but im not sure about that one. But it works against Minos, so maybe

And best counter: CV :Smile_hiding:

 

Or try loading HE in BB (except Monty, unless you have IFHE :cap_haloween:)

1v1 yes. But you don't play the Smolensk as a solo ship. You sit behind an island or in smoke farming ships when they are spotted and fighting other ships. That is why its so toxic to some players. They get in a bad position and get farmed whist being spotted by others and cant turn away. Done it a few times myself and its annoying because there is nothing you can do. Push forward and get blapped by a BB on your flank, turn and get blapped, reverse and get farmed. The best way is to not overcommit and only when you know where the Smolensks are, then you can either stay away early game, or find a way to sneak up close enough to get a radar off and blapp it. Ive been doing the latter to great success in ranked so far. 

 

Smolensk is not that hard to deal with if you know not to get caught bow in or in a situation where you cannot escape or push it. Most players have no idea how to deal with it.

Don't blame them, because the ship is as toxic as it gets.

I am however one of the few that own the ship and think it should be removed or nerfed. I mean. Why is Mino so squishy and not Smolensk? Because Russia.

ps: real question should be, when will RN CL's get HE as well, since the argument was no HE + smoke combinations.

Im almost tempted to use an argument, you always see in the CV rework dump thread: The best CV players are gonna rank up very fast so they wont torture you. everything is fine. :Smile_trollface:

Well, I'm not really complaining - I play haku myself in ranked. If the only choice is to edit* or be the edit* I'd say the answer's pretty easy.

 

Edit: Language please.
