When did they nerf Smolensk shell ballistics?!

Smol shells definitely get A LOT more floaty at long ranges than I remember.

When did they do this? The patch notes for 9.8 and 9.9 make no mention of it.

To be sure, it was long past time to correct this BS.

Now remove the magical shells that do eight times the normal damage from the Japanese gunboat DDs, instead give them Defensive AA and quadruple their continuous AA damage, and presto, we are golden.

It never happened. All in your head.

I used the thing in clan battles a few seasons back and could easily farm targets with the range mod, which is now all but useless.

Then you can experience yourself how your skills worsen when you do not practice something.

Beyond 17km you can even evade the shells in a GK sometime.

"all but useless" actually means very useful :)

No, "all but..."  in this context is synonymous with "just short of...", "almost..." etc.

 

You're probably thinking of "anything but..."
