None. Flamu played it during the official stream and it has wonky dispersion. Felt like he was playing Gascogne or Roma.

Yeah it's basically a nerfed Sov. Soyuz with premium status...not sure why they felt the need to tone her down seeing AL Littorio is a 1:1 copy of Roma

It's pathetic. 

 

WG will tell some story about better dispersion at long range, but we all know how "bad" the original RU BB dispersion is at longer ranges... :fish_palm:

If Sovietskaya Rossiya is supposed to be balanced and not just trash, then I don't know. I mean, the guns have 1.8 sigma, USN dispersion. So, the most average of accuracy settings. Worst reload, worst range, turret traverse is only beaten by the Musashi. So, the guns are at worst poor, at best they are average. The hull though is straight up worse than the Sovietsky Soyuz with less hp and AA. Which raises the question: Are Soyuz guns considered terrible by WG to make it sensible that Rossiya has to get a worse hull to go with these guns? Or is the Soyuz just OP? Or is this thing just crap?

It can, but it is still a nerfed Soyuz.

That changes things a bit though, crappy range is one of Soyuzes really weak points

The collab is pretty bad doe, both ships offer nothing really and bundles and lootboxes are once again up for sale.

wish people would stop buying the sodding things, but then that would require putting miss glue down for a bit.

Only if one doesn't understand how to make use of her strengths. 

 

20 km Kurfürst players come to mind...

I mean, for Rossiya, the ship only gets more accurate than Soyuz at range, which she doesn't have, unless she sacrifices the dpm. In which case, why not play a different T9 BB?

The funny thing is that we are talking about 254 m vs 264 m dispersion at 19.4 km here...

 

Yes, the normal RU BB dispersion is still THAT GOOD at long range, while being absolutely godlike when you get closer...

Well yea unless you are say at one cap and get free broadsides at the other side but you are just short of range to punish them...

When I've played her before release, I thought that she has russian dispertion with better sigma. And I was surprised why those guns are so wonky even on short distances. Now I understand.

I'm just now in middle of one of the most painful grinds, the 'famed' Sovetzky Soyuz, the worst crap tier 9 BB I seen in the game.... and this is a nerfed version.. and I'm supposed to be pay for it just for the privilege of premium status and a pair of well cushioned.. er..uh.. turrets...

The question was not whether I would want more range on Soyuz (sure always), but whether it is a "really weak point" as you said.

 

Truth is that you will very rarely need more range in an RU BB to have an impact, since it is made to be aggressive.
