With the new captain rework coming out next update, BFT and AFT are being removed, meaning a range spec'd Smolensk like mine is loosing 3.2km main gun range. 3 things instantly spring to mind. 1) in a ship as squishy as the Smolensk playing her is now a whole lot more hazardous. 2) She's a special ship, and WG have said special ships are effectively nerf proof, and this is a nerf, no 2 ways about it. 3) WG is adding 20% to the gun range of the Atlanta to offset the loss of BFT & AFT.

 

So my question is: could we get the lost 3.2km of main gun range bolted onto the base range? I think a ~15% loss of gun range should be adjusted for.

Atlanta flint yes smol hell nahhh.

yup! Who needs 19km(sic!)+ range on a HE Spammer like the Smolensk.

 

By the way, she is no premium ship, just a "special" (as Tier X and armory exchange only)

I'm rather impressed with anyone who can even hit anything smaller than a BB at that distance in the first place...

The reason people have her range maxed out to 19.2km is because she is soooooo squishy. Having that range means she can keep her distance, making it easier to dodge incoming shells and making sure she doesn't get insta blapped. The closer you get, the more of a glass ship she becomes.

 

Add to that, we already have the range. Why take it away?

She is also tiny with smoke. And most battleships cannot arm their shells on her broadside.

Many of us can hit her broadside, its just the problem that she have a troll armor. So many times I hit her in broadside for ricochets.

But I must say that I got once or twice devastating strike on her. It was the most juiciest kill in my gaming time in Wows

Have a look at her next the Henri. The Smolensk is a very small target.

No, it's not, as the ship itself remains unchanged. And if special ships are supposed to be nerf proof, they should also be buff proof.

Short answer: no

 

Long answer: nope

Given that the Smolensk is the single largest reason why cruisers are losing AFT, my answer has to be "oh *edited* no"

Small, agile and with troll russian armour, producing mostly overpens and ricochets ( how? ). But still it gets hit sometimes, so obviously more range is badly needed. Would 33km be enough for ppl to feel safe, or does it need a bit more?

Range specced Smolensk? Why on earth would you do that in the current upgrades/captain points' system?

Hope you're not running IFHE as well..

Can always hope that she also gets a range buff like the Atlanta/Flint are getting..

 

not that you can hit anything at such long distance in them anyway..
