RIP. Smolensk is dead, in front of the dead eye. BBs are shooting from 17 KM+ and poor smolensk has a max range of 16KM. 1 shoot of dead-eye-salvo, it's gone. WG, please give her range back! We didn't expect this when purchasing.

Is it dead?? I mean, I played only one game since the update and I had forgotten to switch modules, so I played with 13km range. We lost (because potatoes), but I had fun and did just fine.

Dont know about dead although the 2 games were lost.

First game was spent most of the time gunboating in the open (B cap Islands of Ice) and being harassed by CV. As usual it was cruiser AP that did me in, not BBs.

Second game featured a cyclone where i farmed 1 thunderer to death with mix of AP/HE, then brawled another thunderer at 3 km range, torping him, then killing a Halland for good measure before his stalingrad buddy finished me off with radar. With Rangemod it can reach 16 km which was always the sweetspot.

all CLs have a hard time now, since nothing comes into gun range, so you either have to wait for mid-late game or risk it. In both cases the average dmg goes to hell

I bought Smolensk with coal because it was so OP. And now they completely destroyed it.

One more reason to dislike this game, it has bad mechanics and you can't even build on a solid basis, because in one update it's gone and your coal is gone too...

Grind grind grind, get unfair matchmaking, get abused by CV, endure it all to earn coal to buy ships, and poof! gone. ship worthless... glad I uninstalled.

Smolensk is your only T10 ship (you got Thunderer recently)

How do you expect to learn the game when the only ships you "enjoy" playing are the ones considered OP?

 

but yea, if a ship takes a year to grind to get and it gets drastically changed in a patch like Flint or Smolensk, WG should at least offer to refund it back for original resource

they did bother to fix $20 Atlanta cuz "premium" but others got fucked up hard.

I dont even get why to remove AFT from cruisers, there were many ships who used it

 

PS: Atlanta with IFHE from my snowflake run yday

16km, so around the ballpark of several other tier 10 cruisers, most of which don't have smoke and are easier to full pen and cit compared to smol. 

 

Listen. Just git gud.

Oh boy old range build smolensk user... :Smile_facepalm:

Seriously, 16 km is more than enough. Maybe try to learn how to play with it instead of whining?

I got smolensked often enough when playing tier 8... often enough for me to want it (at the time).

 

Now I don't want to learn anything WoWs related, because I have uninstalled and don't intend to come back, not only because it's a bad game for a host of reasons, but now they also nullify the rewards I earned by grinding resource containers.

 

so no more WoWs, thanks.

 

P.S.

and I didn't even enjoy playing Smolensk, I got it after some changes/nerfs and it wasn't the same anymore anyway. And the number of high tier maps with islands that offer no opportunity to fire from cover is just staggering... looks like they all are in south Vietnam or Phang-Na bay with skyscraper-like islands.

 

Next map: flooded New-York.

why so negative? for some ppl it takes year+ to farm ~250k coal. And range mod Smolensk was very viable build, especially when playing solo

of course  for someone with 20k battles that amount of coal is nothing and since all your Smolensk games were in division you could afford to run reload mod one with a friends spottng/smoking and covering you

 

this changes and removalls of content that ppl wasted ages to farm is very shitty design by WG. They wan't to make a major change to special ships, they should offer refund

Imagine ppl who spent 30k steel for the Flint/Neutra/Black, and now they are coal ships. Its YEARs of grind even for average active players. big [edited]you from WG

Doesnt change the fact smolensk being broken af. So, no matter how long it took anyone to get this ship, she should have been deleted long ago. Or she needs to be nerfed a lot to be somehow balanced. And she having "only" 16 km range is not enough.

In div or not. You can pretty much use islands and your own smoke. Its such a ship which does need very little skill to get good results. 

Besides most of those battles with smolensk was in 2 man div with a BB. So, no extra smoke or whatsoever. 

Btw just checked i have some solo games.

I wonder how so many people got fantastic results with just 16km range in the past :cap_hmm:

Its nothing if you compare this with the biggest f you from WG to RTS mains, who spend 100s of hours to get good in them. And the answer to them was git gud. So, git gud.

This is a game from 5 min ago and I wasn't playing as effective as I could have done (many min with no damage), so its far from dead, will still be able to rock 250 K games in her.
