A wonderful ship, rich with history and design. Sadly in the game the ship is not worth playing or even owning. It has been steadily power crept throughout the years and every buff applied to it, was quickly nullified by an even larger global mechanics nerf.

 

With the Tier 7 being commonly uptiered, but not having access to the same upgrade slots as T8 and above, Blyskawica has very little to offer. With it's bad concealment and almost no AA, it is easy prey for others. At the same time it's offensive capability has been reduced again and again, for example when IFHE was changed or when the gun reload skill and fire chance skills were massively nerfed.

 

The ship is pretty, but don't buy it to have it rust in port.

 

PS: Currently Blyskawica has some of the worst stats among the T7 DDs. Source.

I've read her History about her defense of the Isle of Wight etc A great ship and crew. Alas WG has thrashed it with the Nerf Hammer or just let her fade away through many game "Improvements" it's a tragedy but it happens to so many historic ships in the game, Ce'st la WG :Smile_honoring:

At least the ship model looks good. I mean what more would one want in a competitive game ?

Still Blyska is one of those few premium ships, that was directly buffed.

Blyska indeed doesn't have much to offer, as she is one of the oldest ships in the game, so she was created in the time, when plenty of current game gimmicks were not implemented yet, so will release of new ships, she could loose her better effectivity in comparison with other not so old ships...

Which as we can see didn't help her in the end.

Which could be remediated by adjusting her capabilities. That's all in WG's hand, not the players. But we all know there is no desire to do that. And that's the case with many other older premiums, premiums that aren't paper napkin designs but real ships with real history behind them.

 

 

Blyskawica is a corpse, a nice looking corpse, but still a corpse.

You know, readjusting parameters of old tech tree and premium ships would be very long process as every single change can have huge impact for any battle in terms of balancing. And of course, once we buff one old premium ships, there was and always will be desire to buff also other ones, all of them...

so start edited balancing ships instead of printing power-creeped (or then totally useless) new ones ...

edit: btw LOL at this red edit ... truly epic

As you can see almost in every Patchnotes article for the Update, there are plenty ships being rebalanced basically every Update...

there is not nearly enough balancing and too much crap added with every update - so it seems that wg/lesta's spreadsheet reading ability is not nearly as good as you yourself seem to believe...

From what has happened just lately with whistle blowing from iFarl Grey, Flamu and a few more we all know how Wargaming Roll,  Basically no different to any other Game Company so be it I can live with that, But think on this some of these ships could be tweaked at not much cost and  players could be tempted into parting with Cash, A bit more Daka here or a little stealth there, the Indy at T-7 give it the 25mm bow like New Orleans, Shios like Chesjire and Belfast 43 you don't see them in game much because they are meh, why not buff them a bit and sell more to make more cash. Please don't go with the Balance thing CV's have Drop Kicked that through the Window ang WG's spreadsheets need hanging in the toilet. And just bring back a little Fun to the game Just a Thought.

The Blys should have been in the Naval Legends - paper ships should be in a different category - what she needs is better concealment - surely this would not be too difficult to remedy - 7.5 km seems about 1km too much! when released, she had the ability to stealth fire - reasonably this was removed from all ships but as this was her major attribute, she should have been buffed a bit more - Would also like to see the ORP Piorun.

Simplest solution would be enabling all 6 upgrade slots for all tiers, which wouldn't affect same-tier ship balance as players would stick to the same BiS upgrades anyway, but would help dealing with power gap between tiers. That or nerfing, if not outright removing Concealment upgrade. When we're at it, one of the supposed goals of "captain rework" was to add more variety. And yet, Concealment Expert is as mandatory as it used to be. If not even more, given other skill options were nerfed, thus deliver less value, while Deadeye complements Concealment very nicely:cap_tea:

I confess that I thought it had been but was surprised to see it in the Dry Dock.

Well, any ship, especially the historical ones, which are still museums, can be part of several video series
