You wait until X-mas and then you buy €500 containers. 

I hope I get Enterprise and Belfast, too.

How do you acquire Smolensk cannot see it in the armory anymore?

It's gone for good. You cannot buy her anymore (for coal) and there is no other option. It's unlikely to have her in crates in future, too.

That's totally up to you. As you did a few years without her and she's annoying but as spreadsheets and stats say no "auto-win-ship", she is no must-have-ship (for me).

No man. They'll think of something equally broken-OP and then you can get that one. 

It might be an even bigger pest than Smolly. Trust me, they will come up with something. :cat_paw:

WG will probably come with skill rework which removes BFT/AFT bonuses for main guns and voila, Smolensk (and number of gun oriented destroyers who dare to have an influence in games) nerfed without nerfing ships directly:cap_haloween:

 

And then WG will introduce Smolensk sister ship with adjusted gun range/reload to compensate for lack of skill bonuses

It's gone, and it should stay gone forever. 

This ship is not overpowered. But given the way it was as it left the design floor,  introducing it was a crap decision.

 

So they pulled the plug and removed it. AFAIK in record-time for an Armoury ship.

That won't happen unless those ships suddenly start being effective against carriers.

So, are you implying Jutland/Daring are too effective against carriers and had their gun/torp reload nerfed three times in a row?:cap_hmm:

Don’t worry about it. Smolensk quickly becomes very boring. I foolishly used about 4000 steel To get It on release in case it quickly disappeared. I regret that now as I have well over 400,000 coal and nothing to spend it on!

 

It’s not as fun or as OP as many say.

They most certainly are not... and my implication was half made in jest, but I guess you already guessed that? :Smile_Default:

 

I've got the Daring and she's a good enough ship that even I can do rather well in her, if the stars are aligned. She doesn't really need faster reload on her guns, since I'm hard pressed to keep them firing at full rate and accuracy as it is, but I could do with a faster reload on her torpedoes. Ah, well... I shall have to keep taking turns with playing the Halland, that's a fast torpedo reload and no mistake!

The trick with keeping the Smolensk entertaining is to spend more time HE kiting in open water and dodging everything the enemy team throws at you, than hiding in smoke.

 

But I agree that not having got the Smolensk is no reason to uninstall the game. Get the Colbert or the Marceau instead, and go to town in them!

I don't understand why it was removed. WG naturally don't think it is OP since then it would need to be nerfed. So if it is not OP why cannot people have it?

Oh yeah I totally forgot. Now they want hard cash for it!

Task incomplete - because it was not removed from all those ports. :Smile_sceptic:

Smolensk, Jean Bart...What's next?

 

Atlanta? Oh wait, she's practically useless for her original role.

Because if it weren't, we would have 80% of cruisers in teams being Smolensk. Even now most of teams have at least 2.
