Eh…what is this…what is this horrible new premium ship?! I review the Krasny Krym (Krispy Kreme, Crappy Krym) and talk about why I’m so bewildered by this ship. Ummm, stay away from it until you watch the review. Enjoy.
At least nobody will cry “russian bias” on this one.
this is a great submarine … oh, wait!
…what is actually wrong with you Wargaming…? Is this just so you can make other nation’s lines (UK, German) shit and claim there’s no bias…? Like I’m just trying to find a reason why they’re so incapable of doing a good job of balancing ships xD
Oh great, a premium based on a ship that i hate that has been moved to tier 5… what could possibly go right?
The only reason for this ship is to stop the Russian bias whiners callers if you ask me…..
Funny thing is that I like the Svetlana and I had doubts when I see that this thing is in Tier 5. Guess I was right…
Why is this a tier 5? It doesn’t just look like the Svetlana, it IS the Svetlana. This was the lead ship of the class, they just renamed it and modified it.
I like to to keep it simple when looking at buying any thing. “Buy” or “Do Not Buy” or “Try it” In this game it really depends on your style of gameing. This ship should be used for scrap. To slow, guns are to slow and Torp range sucks. So its a big fail. You do not need to be kind to all ships. Just park it on a beach and use it as a brake water.
Oh come on, it’s at least on par with the Bobblehead. And the Ishizucchini. With the AFT captain’s skill, you can even squirt those popguns out to 16km or so. (Edit): I think it was actually a reward ship on the RU server that they then put on sale in other servers on impulse. So, they might have intended it more as a collector’s item than a competitive premium.
Watched Notsers review, and coming into this, I GUARANTEE you won’t like it. EDIT: aaaaaaaaand what a surprise! NOT
I heard another YouTuber that plays on the EU server that this ship was originally given out to players on RU serves as a mission reward ship. Which if anyone here has ever played World of Tanks, you understand instantly why it’s horrible. Reward vehicles are almost always horrible and so terrible that they have to give them away so that people will have them in their slots. And that’s usually just long enough for one battle, and then you sell it and hey, look there! Wargaming gave you a free port/garage slot, go them.
heres a positive:if your a l33t mlg dorito and mountain dew god this will be fun to try and get a perfect match out of
this crap is even more embarrassed than Atlanta……and Atlanta will have radar in 059, so……
“Krasniy Krym” translates as “Red Crimea”. I imagine a lot of people on the RU server are eager to fork out money to annex a premium ship with that name :P
WOT put out the PZ 3K, so WOWS should also get a crappy-assed tier 5. That would be my guess.
Who puts an 18 point captain on what’s basically an average tier 4 ship that can get into tier 7 games? I feel the need to point out that this thing will regularly get in games against the cleveland, which not only has bigger guns and can point more guns at a target, but its 155mm guns also have about the same rate of fire. It seems like anything this ship can do, the omaha can do far better.
Most of the shells against that Myogi (shittiest armor) in the beginning were breaking lol
Why do some say that 18 is a maxed captain and others say that 19 is maxed?
All that OP dusky bias… This is to balance that.
Krispy Kreme is for Capitalist pigs! Real Russians eat Kremey Krisp Donuts!
tier 3 i think best for that ship
Ichase i see you have discovered the “Krispy Kreme” as dubbed by Notser Love the videos
Thanks for the review ichase, always respect your opinions and weigh heavily on them if I’m considering buying a premium ship but not sure (though I think you were wrong about Kutuzov, I love that ship). I’ve seen nothing but negative reviews on this ship, but I’m wondering based on your review of Indianapolis (they did fix it and I did buy it, decent ship), if WG will fix this ship by moving it to a tier lower or fixing the stats?
WarGaming has really pulled off a good mind fuck on its customers. In most games as you level up you receive new equipment or vehicles by way of unlocks that you may or may not have to spend in-game currency on. WG has bait and switched the unlock idea by allowing it’s customers to feel like they have a collection of ships. Most players I believe think they own a collection of ships and of course that trigers the whole pride of ownership and/or hoarding part of our brains and they now have a customer base that is unwilling to even think about trying out any other similar game even if it’s better (steel ocean). It’s a brilliant move to the point that their customers take things even further and pay actual real world cash for “premium ships” again something they can never actually own as it isn’t real, it’s just a dressed up unlock in game. Very clever.
No good reason for WG to even bother making this premium Russian cruiser, we already had 5 of them before this thing came out.
WG, Y U do dis. Again with the Russian bias. And cheating us out with this terrible premium ship….
chase can you do a video on the midway vs hakuyru in the current meta please and thank you
Thank you for saving me 20 bucks. Why WG, Why?
it may be a crappy ship.. but your skill and luck carried the game.
i want my sharnhorst… especially after you do a review on it
Chase should have been the ship instead https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=N_vzIyrd43o
this ship is the reason why I despise the fact the “Svetlana” is in game…the Svetlana never sailed under that name. it was completed by the Red Navy and launched as…you guessed it…Krasny Krym (Red Crimea). two others were completed as crusiers, two as tankers, and the rest of the 8 ship class was broken up. (the other two were, I believe, technically part of the larger “Admiral Nakhimov” subclass and completed as Chernova Ukraina [Red Ukraine] and Krasny Kavaz [Red Caucasus] respectively).
Those guns are so bad even the Germán 105mm are better just because the reloud speed
saw this ship on the PT server for 0.5.8 quite a bit driven by STs … it got its ass handed to it repeatedly. knew right there it sucked espesh after a ST indicated how much he disliked it.
We do always complain of Russian Bias, so this is thier answer. hueheuhue..
do this thing out ranges the Atlanta…cool
**facepalm** Why WG, why?
I took a quick look at it’s specs some days ago and just as quickly moved on
Why would anyone buy this junk instead of the Murmansk??
What is it with your Krispy Kreme references?
This ship sucks, can you do a review on the North Carolina iChase?
Category #2. Also, hoping that one day, WG will realize what a sub-standard PoS they foisted on us and give it a buff. I’m thinking increase RoF, lower spotting range, 5.0km torps and she’d actually be a decent ship. Still, I may be a collector, but there’s no way I was paying $40+ for this piece of s*** just to get some crappy cosmetic flag. Basic Bundle only WG. You’re not getting any more money than I absolutely HAVE to give to get the ship.
Well, afaik the ship was available for free as reward in the RU server, so obviously even for a russian ship it can’t be too good as a freebie.
When you have to actually pay for it though …
Maybe this thing is a IQ test from Wargaming ? How stupid are we going to think our players are ? It is so bad it is offensive. or they will take it off say give the Torps 2.5 times the range and triple the rate of fire of guns
I agree that this would be an okay tier 4 ship. The day this gets into a tier 7 battle is a very, very sad day indeed. But it is a bit of good fun to derp around with in the lower a tier 5 max and can somewhat get by in a battle with 2 or 3 tier 6 ships, but yeah….they really should at the very least buff the ROF on it. Like iChase stated unless you ‘gotta catch them all’ 😉 I wouldn’t recommend it.
I put Krym into Google and got Krim. German for Crimea. You know the Ukrainian peninsula occupied by Russia. Could it be that WG Russia is playing politics. No, that would be like gambling in Casablanca – shocking.
Yes, I shall pray to Hestia :d
hope wargaming will give ppl their money back! cuz i think theres gonna be alot of broken keyboards
How on earth did you get 1.1 million doubloons???
I wonder if WG knows this ship is bad. It is the first premium I’ve seen with a rusty skin, all the other premium ship camo’s are spotless.
So how does this ship compare to tier 4? What would be the best fix: a modest buff or a slight nerf plus downgrade to T4?
We should have an “ugliest ship” competition like the one they have for dogs, I think we have a winner. It’s the only way this ship will be “best in class” with its peers, gotta give it something to brag about.
Who has heard of the Dunkerque coming to WoWs
We can finally surrender for a reason
absolutely love my svietlana and was realy exited about this….. tbh the so much nerfed torps killed it for me, with all the other nerfs and only some aa, crap secondarys and a little better mains, im not sure its even an upgrade to the svietlana, if you told me its a downgrade i would have beliefed you.
The Krasny Krym is WG’s most cunning plan ever! From now on, every time someone complains about russian bias they can point to this ship :P
And atlanta(t7 in same situration and better aa)have radar in 5.9
Thanks for the review! I’ll save my 20 dolla for another premium :)
I have all the premium ships. But no way am I paying anything for this crap.
I thought Albany was bad. ALBANY. Then….then I saw….this…..thing. and they sell it for MONEY.
You forgot the 3rd category of people who should buy this ship: masochists
If it is like the svietlana you can fire all your broadside plus the rearmost gun from the other side when your target is on your back. 9 gun “salute” is possible. Don’t have the krasny so I can’t check.
Ill just keep saving for the german bb’s lol
Sail next to BBs and pretend to be a really big secondary turret.
NO PANIC,This ship gets a lot heavy buffs soon! & WTF again 19 capitan skills but 18 is the max you can get & have!
Dedicated DD hunter?…….
They haven’t released Tone yet. But we got another Russian cruiser. so that’s… nice… I guess… :/
Chase recommends 10/10… would never play again >_>
first time a russian company makes a bad russian (in this case) ship.
Get torpedo acceleration! It’ll make the ship so much better!
i love this ship for the simple reason it makes my beloved Marblehead look good
All those 2ndry hits tho
pls stop with the gifs, anotations, and a the other stuff Chase
gosh give us your money ship gah.
On RU this is a reward ship, like Emden. And like Emden she is just a worse than silver ship. That’s why. If they provided people with reward ships that were better in slot than actual premiums, they wouldn’t sell the paid for premium. Ahhh… but Kamikaze R I hear? Not really any other premium torpedo destroyers around are there? Not any you can buy, outside the Kamikaze (not R) once in a blue moon (and that’s the same ship in any case, just another camo).
And Arpeggio ships are marginally worse than the silver variants (no camo benefit).
The fact that the non-RU servers actually have to pay for this crap, well that’s our own fault for not playing on the RU server.
This pile of crap needs either buffs or premium matchmaking. There’s no reason this ship should have to fight Nagato, Myoko, and Schors.
Edit: now I want donuts.
So, would you at all recommend anyone buying it??
Well Chase you have never been more wrong the Kryms torps are freaking deadly! When they launch them at targets 10 km away, behind you and in your direction of travel and you have just used damage control because your Nagato is an bonfire on the high seas they really hurt! Salty? Who? Me? Nahhhh!! :(
I wipe my butt with $20 bills and I’m a ship collector. Fit both categories for the win.
everybody waitin for Scharnhorst… WG gives us: red Krim
go back to tier 4 Krasny you’re drunk!!
Krasny Krym means Red Castle in Russian, taking off from the Kremlin building in Moscow. So this ship is proof that there is Russian bias with…how many premium ships now? yet no Russian bias because it is such a piece of junk? I guess for Russian players, it gives them a tier 5 premium ship that is 100% Russian/Soviet rather than a lend/lease American ship? Going with national pride on that one! Be proud Russians!
Is it bad if I actually like the Atlanta, with my best game in it is 7 kills with the last being a kamakazie run at a battleship and torping it and at less with 100 health left.
The purpose of the ship is obviously to sell more Murmansk.
Modified Svetlana. LOL
“I cannot for the life of me figure out what the people who tested this ship … ”
Supertester here. You overestimate our influence. We test a ship, we give feedback. That’s all we do. It’s up to WG what to do with that feedback. In this case, they ignored it. We didn’t “okay” anything.
I vote for Krispy Kreme?
Great review IChase ! I think I’ll save my 15$ for real Timmies though
So… not even the standard bundle? You thing that if the reactions get bad enough they might improve it?
This is Wargaming’s answer to everyone commenting about how ridiculously OP the russian premiums are. Now they can point at this ship as proof that not ALL their ships are OP. Just most of them.
Soon we will be given Kamikaze R or Emden to buy.
My theory, this is meant to prove that not all Russian ships are made of/fire stalinium. That’s the best theory I can come up with. The other one I’ve got is that WG wants to make a line of ships that would be good if only one or two things about them were just slightly better. I should warn you that I am suffering from Izumo stock hull syndrome at the moment and may be a bit cynical. It’s a bit like Stockholm Syndrome, but saltier. XD
all i can say is that WG should be accused of day light robbery if u ask me
Sry, you said this ship is crab…so i excpected an terrible gameplay. What do i see, nearly 90 K damage and position 1 at the end ????????? Sry this ship cant be useless -.-
Why so much donut jokes?
Looks like compared to the Svietlana you have secondary artillery, better aa, better rudder shift, bonus captain xp and ship xp, free camo – worse torps, worse mm.
At least with my favorite the KamikazeR you only lose out in AA and maneuverability (speed), and still get the xp and camo for free bonus.
Wasn’t that thing an event ship on the Russian servers?
And it absolutely needs Demo Expert over Concealment, since fires are your only hope of doing any damage.
Stalinium has a specific weight way above that of depleted uranium, which justifies the loooong reload time. That or the sailors are just flinging shells from below deck, hand to hand, until the last man pushes it into the breech.
Damn. The Anshan is a Gnevny class but she’s a viable T6 ship, but wtf with this Krasny Krym. Thank god you did this video cause otherwise I guess there will be a lot of people thinking she’s probably going to be a cruiser version of the Anshan situation.
You were talking with FlightRN?? He invited me to the clan I’m in
Wargaming has said all along they don’t believe in pay to win… Here’s proof.
16:30 Apparently, the K-K is even a bad matchup against ships that remain perfectly stationary and aren’t even firing at it.
A lot of American vessel will literally going to eat this donuts for dinner tonight, I mean a lot of donuts BTW another great ship review Chase
And to think: this ship can be thrown against the Myoko and Colorado. The KK isn’t even a match for the Phoenix and the Kuma, never mind the higher tier ships.
18:42 This is what I mean, the USN 127mm guns do 561 damage per “HE Shell Pen”, and IIRC the Russian DDs do close to the same, but this ship? It seems to do about 360 odd damage per “penetrating” HE shell – it’s Pathetic!
This ship makes Atlanta look like a Goddess! Well IMHO she is a goddess, but that doesn’t change the fact that she is situational and not “fully competitive” as it were… But again IMHO, if Atlanta were given 32 to 35k HP, 12.4 KM base range, and about 9.6 km surface detection with the free camouflage – she would be a TRULY competitive ship! At least for people like myself that enjoy her unique play style and do well with it.
HOLY-BALLS … it’s worse than I thought!
Nice obituary 😉 . . . . btw what is under Ship Peculiarities in your port view, I’m aware it’s probably a press account thing?
So, are you telling me this is a Soviet Kaiten? It’s larger, better armed, and faster than the Japanese version. BUY!!!
If it’s got 15 guns total, then shouldn’t you be able to fire 9 guns to one side? All I can see is 8 shells at any given time, which begs the question, where is that 15th gun? What does it do and when can you use it?
You’re better off spending your $16 on some actual Krispy Kreme donuts.
They are going to buff this thing soon probably, impossible to keep up on T5 with this shit….
Why do you have so many Orlan commanders?
REDlanta? DD caliber spammer?
Krazy Kim >_<
What’s in the Ship peculiarities thing? There seems to be a drop down tab there…
I am a collector but strange enough, did 45k in the first and only battle i have had in it. I think i keep it like that,lol:)
Damn the krym isn’t even good as a kamikaze torpedo ship oO!!!! And I come to think, maybe wargaming is trolling us lately :P
2:20 But the guns aren’t even as good as the 130mms on the Russian DDs! They basically almost NEVER do citadel damage – something the Russian DDs excel at, and the HE does PATHETIC damage! Worse than the DDs, which makes no sense as they are rated for 1900 HE damage where the DDs are rated at 1700, so WHY does this ship cause less damage per shell with HE, and basically CANNOT citadel worth a damn with AP?
no one has said anything good about this ship its a peace of crap well wargamming you have to think what is going threw there minds when they put these kinds of ships in the game.
Well, WG have a proven track record of terrible ideas. The Atlanta as a T7 ship as she is… OUCH.
1:52 – what she said
Seems like this ship is meant for historic ship collectors… Too bad WG in their little russian bubble have never really understood that ships which are famous and have (by russian standards) accomplished a lot, are still pretty much unknown anywhere else and their achievements completely unimpressive. Russia / the soviet Unions simply never really was a major Naval Nation in terms of actual Battle accomplishments.
But maybe this ship is WG’s answer to all this talk about Russian bias… Maybe it’s them saying: “Look at this shitty ship!!! It’s a Russian ship in WoWs and it absolutely stinks! So how can even for a second think that were was such a thing as Russian bias?!”
Btw.: I feel this ship might be better if you get DE and maybe spec out of CE for it… Not sure if CE is that much use to it, stealth firing does not seem all that relevant in the way she plays. But boosting the fire chance from 8% to 11% (after all a huge 37.5% increase) with the number of shells you put out and how accurate they are, it might be a pretty good “toaster”.
This ship = ⛔️☠shit ❌?
The only reason this ship exists is so that Wargaming can claim that there is no “Russian Bias”.
Thanks for advising us. I am not buying this krispy kreme ship. Seem to me this ship should of been tier 4 premium.
I’ll tell you my ruling about it—its a waste of money. Why bother buying it when in a few weeks we’ll have the Scharnhorst?
Btw chase, I have an announcement I’d like to make on the twitch stream tonight if you don’t mind.
wtf why wargaming WHY
Chase I can think of one way for this ship to be good. If you had an American or Russian DD division mate to pop smoke while you both sit in it and spam HE it might rack up some damage. But again that’s literally the only way I’d play it other than that it’s garbage. Good vid as always mate look forward to more!
if someone wants a I to buy a premium middle tier sovjet cruiser i do not see why someone will choose this ships over a murmansk or molotov
this is why you should have stayed is super super tester so we don’t get garbage like this and Our game
This ship is just an embarrassment Wargaming. Really disappointing. So this is what they have to show for their work instead of getting a new tree in the game… Wow
Perhaps they decided that they would show no Russian bias, no more OP ships. If sales are bad, they will buff it. I hope so since I was stupid enough to buy it. It has no redeeming features.
Welp…It’s slower then my Kongo…Hahahahaha!!!
WG should put this donut factory down at tier 4.
Kransy Krym = Krusty Krab
Lesson learned, don’t watch this vid while eating breakfast, lol
“WTF is this?”
WG is just operating normally.
I see a third group of potential buyers: the ones who pay to get punished and enjoy it (sado-maso)
iChase the gunners ain’t having doughnuts…they’re having ALL of the vodka and forget that they have to load 130mm guns…plus only american crews get doughnuts : ]
And they say to stay with friendlys and call it swiftXD. No WG called it swift
It is funny because the Kongo class battleship is faster than this ship.
Ichase always do the most savage reviews XD that’s why I watch this
damnit iChase… now you have me craving doughnuts :
Haha Hestia 🙂 this ship, in my opinion is a prime example of a cash grab
lol at this game. another shitty russian coffin. ffs
Took a look at the intro and thought “wtf is that thing”
Good review, but you sound a bit far from the mic, or is it the echo?
lol seems Tsundere missed out on his first comment
Krasny Krym = Crispy Cream
do sharnhorst review!!!
Odd that this sucks, even though Soviet premiums are normally very strong ships.
Oh god you and Jingles just uploaded a video together, there will be no sleep tonight.
