I'm not getting all this dislike for the Svetlana it's a fun ship that can do a load of damage in no way is she like the Karlsruhe.

It is incredibly bad.

 

Horrible ruddershift time, yet the turrets turn so slow they still can't keep up in a turn. Bad detectability for its range, no armour whatsoever and angling doesn't help because in the lower tiers, people spam HE anyway.

 

And talking about HE, it's the only ammunition you should shoot in the low tier russian cruisers. AP is absolutely terrible. I shot AP volleys at a nearly broadside Karlsruhe 6km away from me and hardly did any damage (just a couple hundred damage per volley), spamming HE I do more or less triple that damage per volley, plus I knock out modules and can set fires.

 

In a direct comparision Karlsruhe vs Svietlana, I'd take the Karlsruhe all the time.

Uh, tier 4 stock ship in a tier 6 match... duh? I hope you aren't taking that match as your first impression seriously.

Wait... wat?

 

I absolutely love it so far and I'm hardly some godlike player - far from it in fact.  Granted I've only played four battles, but my average damage in it is 20k higher than in the Karls.

Funny, while absolutely not feeling overwhelmed the Svietlana's handling reminded me of the St. Louis. The damage output seems somewhat unreliable against higher tiers. Good enough to defend bottlenecks against light armored targets, though. Won four out of five around noon (when literally a hundred cruisers were queuing) and am actually looking forward to the rest of the grind. There is nothing I could really complain about except how long it takes her to come to a full halt.

4 battles so far and I like it, even though been top tier only once. Can't compare to Karlsruhe because when I played the German ship it was not yet improved.

Stock Svietlana, second game - Love at first sight!

 

Auntie Edith wants to add that this was a T4/T5 match, so Svietlana can definitely carry her weight.

the only good i found about this ship is that it is bouncing a lot of shells when a bit angled including fuso shells

well I actually enjoyed it ... had about 15 games in it and had 5k more average damage on it than my nurnberg ... so i guess it's got that going for it ... and nobody is complaining about the nurnberg soooo :D

budyonny with more guns but paper armor

Yes, but so does all the Rus cruisers have so that doesnt really make the Shchors a Yorck. The Yorck was pretty unplayable while Shchors is an upgrade to a really good ship, the Budyonny. I doesnt seem like their is a high tier Derp ship in the Russian line, right?

Check out this video "World of Warships - Tech Tree Overview - Russian Cruisers" by iChaseGaming

 

 

The Shchors gets an extra turret over the Buyonny, but in other respects it suffers:
-- much weaker armour
-- turning radius of 900 meters and poor rudder shift time, worse than battlships!
-- Poor surface detectibility of 13.3 km

 

iChaseGaming calls it "The massive stinker on the Russian line"

 

Not saying iChase is right, not saying that he is wrong either. Just offering an alternative opinion.

Well, the Svietlana may be a pile of rusty crap, but the Kirov is very much fun to play with. Those guns are amazing: very accurate, high shell velocity, nice flat arc. HE damage is good, it sets fires like a champ and the AP is pretty decent too. The ship turns like a brick though. Overall a good first impression and that was with the stock Kirov, so it can only get better :playing:

'nuff said. :fishpalm:

Apart from the tissue paper engine and maybe a small range buff I'd say that she is a decent ship for her tier. Maybe not Kuma levels of awesomeness but at least playable and even enjoyable.

Its definitly a step up from the Karlsruhe and Yuubari.

With a skilled captain it could probably be a pretty decent sealclubber even with its large number of guns with 6 torpedoes on each side which while short range do have good arcs.

Slavlana also seems quite good at utterly demolishing any DDs that pop up into view.
