I personally (and a lot of other ppl) think that this thing is beyond OP. But it doesn’t rly matter what I think or believe, it’s about WG at the end of the day and if they think it’s fine, it’s fine xD Enjoy and have fun watching 😉
Oh yeah, op as hell ! Like Stalingrad in his beginnings, it’s the only ship I fear to see on the enemy team in early t10 games, like an Atlanta or a flint at t7… if the enemy player knows what he is doing, the game is badly engaged.
And sometimes u see 2-3 Smolensks in enemy team for barely one in our, ofc we lose that game. Op as fuck, that ship need nerf ASAP.
GG btw (expected tbh) ?
Absolutely rightfull!!! My poor Jean Fart teared a part cause of smolensk inside of smoke… Fucking HE spammers
“She needs radar! I love my Smolensk”- Mino player.
it doesn’t have 50mm deck plating komrad
is balans tovarisj ???
Just play it right and it’s all gonna be good don’t let enemys to take advantage of the weak points and you have the artillery to do a great job.
It lacs 25km/150knots/0,1km detection torps to be OP…. In WG’s minds…
no needs 75% posible repair rate 😀
no lets make it 99% 😀
@ivan holik …that too….
It also lacks Rail guns and orbital laser guidance lock and Photon torpedoes. Only then would I call it OP.
and better firing angles and better ballistics. Oh and maybe a little faster shell loading.
It will get the KutuzovBelfastMissouri treatment so get it while it’s hot.
still need about 100k coal for her xD
I think those will return as WG had officially gave up on balancing the game by releasing this thing, might as well make even more money.
Wouldn’t it be great if WG focus its resources on new branches instead of making OP ships? yeah. This is going down the same way world of tanks took with the game after scorpion G released.
But that’s what makes them money
Not to mention gold ammo
I’m getting bored of the constant stream of power creep at the moment. I’m losing interest in the game.
Fuc scorpion G
And they said HE mino would be OP but they put in this ship instead.
@MinGi Song Do you even play the game?
@Luke White LULW do you? if youre going to be this snarky youre going to have to show me your stats and it better be godly
@MinGi Song This isn’t a discussion about stats it a discussion about whether or not a ship is over powered which you have no clue about and have just interjected your self in the debate for the sake of debating and you look really silly. I’ve just made a video on the Smolensk for you all to view. I done here.
@Luke White i mean, we tried to bring valid points to the conversation, and all you’ve said to me is ‘do you even play this game’. considering how smug you are about this and since you refuse to give any sort of argument, i can only assume you automatically think you are correct because you are some sort of super pro and your opinion is all we need.
“balanced trade-offs” bitch please, you act like you’re the one that hasn’t played against one
I would like to remind you that Kitakami, a T4 cruiser thrust into T8 with a gimmick, was considered worthy of a full and outright removal from the game.
Meanwhile, Smolensk exists.
Yes they differ a lot Comrade. Thats why i wrote it has nothing to do with Kitakami. BTW its also fun to me. Also the usual Flambass quality play. And he had the CV spotting for him. You know when i ask a random CV to help it either does not respond or tell me to GTFO. So he had the spotting and the enemies did not even shot back at him. No wonder he does this well. Kurfrst close in on him like 7 km, just to turn back not using hydro, and to take the beating on his way back. “this thing needs to dye, disappear one day, etc.” Overreacting as usual
The reason they took out kitakami was because people were idiots and kept TKing people
Yeah, but the Kita was a one trick pony. It had lots of torps, but that was it. Literally it.
@Gareth Fairclough Mhm, it was a tier 8 kuma with a lot of torps and tbh i dont think the torps did much it was just wall of skill shima on a new level
I know. I was there.
Which is why I said it was a “one trick pony”. It had shit guns. Shit concealment. It wasn’t fast, nor was it tough. It only had lots of torps.
lol 300k in 12 mins. where are those people who said russian bias doesnt exist?
300k in under 12 minutes. If you hadn’t run out of targets at this point, you could have easily broken 400k
My whole gameplay in Yamato is built around location of enemy Smolensk. It’s basically a 16km radius area denial for battleships and unlike Worcester, it can do it from smoke
You forget the Smolensk has the option for +19km range……
Remove the heal, give it German smoke and shorten the range. Also reduce its acceleration rate
Why the fck? Would u buy that?
@Jozsef Toth Like, many still would, just because of it 16 cancer gun.
All you have to do is remove smoke and then at least she becomes a high skill boat. It takes like 4 brain cells to just go sit in open water and fire from smoke.
They probably will nerf it when they have milked it for all it’s worth and sales start to drop.
David Woods it’s actually completely free. Just need to grind for hundreds of thousands of coal in the armory to afford it!
You dont like Stalin bias? let me introduce you to the gulag machinegun comrad.
Send this video to WG. Probably,WG would say “But statistics said…”
*but spreadsheet said*
Because how often have you seen Smolensk being played this way. They are usually behind islands and are deleted eeeeasily.
Best part is – they’ve tired a light, rapid firing cruiser with self smoke in british linetesting. And it was discarded as way too broken, leaving us current RN line. And now, we have this.
Yea but this is Russian so it is allowed
So basically, one Smolensk dominated an entire flank, with a CV to help spot. balanced
Saved Coal for a long time and waited for something “special” to come out. Then this ship appeared! Thank You WG
Blind guy in Smolensk doing 300k, nothing to see here…
they will buff the Smolensk, 2 charges of Radar each with 11 minutes duration and 100km Range, Radar Cooldown will be long 5 seconds
When I first came across the video by Yuro, I knew this ship was overpowered because I barely heard any negative things about it. When I fought it in battle, it only confirmed my suspicions. This ship is a Russian godship that needs to go. I gotta get it before it gets taken off the market. WG, you win this round.
I love how the Stalingrad player felt he was the “perfect counter” and then at 12k, he ran.
