1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (1,106 votes, average: 4.81 out of 5)

This is a test to see just powerful Petropavlosk is against tier 10 BBs. There are no premium BBs because they are not allowed in room (for bots) but you to see the magic this thing does to a class which is mostly considered to be untouchable by cruisers when it comes to AP.

If you want to test your ship against bots like this, go to room and put game mode on TEST, add bots and learn 😉

Enjoy and have fun watching 😉

  1. “I’m only getting one Citadel”
    sitting in a Cruiser shooting BBs at 13km mhhhh

    • @Dennis Keßler The mechanics in this game are not favorable to BBs at all. You get worse dispersion, worse penetration angles and a slower reload. In the meantime, cruisers can just farm you with HE spam and burn you down in a few minutes. Now they are just adding cruisers that can farm you with AP. What’s the point of playing BBs when you are so vulnerable to everything you face?

    • Brett Hobbs I try to be nice: this sounds like a 45% win rate player. BBs are still the best class in the game. They deal the most damage, can tank the most damage, cant be one shotted (just by ridiculous), have the most range, best penetration angles, overmatch mechanic, heal in early levels (the only class), best torpedo protection, etc. The balance this they add worse dispersion and worse reload…but if you hit you Deal so much more damage. Still if you don’t move broadside this new cruiser line will lose against BBs. BBs are since the beginning the best class in game…and the get buffs after buffs after buffs…and not because they are bad…just because the most of the worst players play BBs. They got so many fans who don’t care about game mechanics etc. BB is still the easiest class and this „cruisers can farm me with HE“. Go to the training room with a mate and play a one on one. The cruiser will lose every game if you don’t play like a brainless ape. But if you get focused by 3-4 ships as a single BB you have to die…what kind of balancing would it if you won’t be defeated by 3-4 ships against 1. I mean wtf. Your comment shows that you have to learn a lot about the game and that’s okay. But pls don’t say things like this again…if you ask yourself why you should play BB, what should other classes think about the game?

    • @Brett Hobbs If you wish to counter the HE then don’t extinguish one fire, if you got full health I’d let two or three burn until you can get into cover then damage control. Remember heals cover all fire damage, plus you shouldn’t broadside either, as Dennis and CloneD have said you just need to angle in or out. Also dispersion, while not good, is a balancing factor that ‘should’ also encourage you to get stuck in and support your cruisers and destroyers as best you can. Honestly you shouldn’t be having these problems playing BBs if you follow those instructions

    • @Dennis Keßler You know that no other cruiser can do this, right? DM has under 300 mm of pen at 9 km…. I’m a DD main, and i hate all this mechanics that make BBs HP pinatta for everything else. I want my BBs to push with me near caps not snipe from 20 km because their armor means nothing…

    • Cosmin Lesutan I said in my first post that this new ship is OP. I talked about that the autor of the original post complains about the BBs are to weak and that’s not true! And this cruiser won’t delete BBs in frontal fight. It’s not just their armor that protect BBs…it’s there health and healing. If an BB is played the right way they can tank so much damage from other ships…they are tanky enough and.

  2. Mr. Fearstricker

    Ah I can see kremlin’s weak broadside and it taking mORe dAmGe tHeN oThEr BBs

  3. Everything gets massive damage while kremlin doesnt give a shi.t.Balans indeed

    • @lildimka Aint no way you have over 50% win rate and think the Kremlin is balanced. If you undestand the game enough to have at least a 50% win rate then you wouldn’t need anyone to explain to you why that ship is overpowered. People who think the ship is balanced are the ones that try extra hard to get killed and only die half the time cuss the ship is basically idiot prof

    • “weak sides”

    • @ivan holik Are they jealous of Ohio 30 sec turret traverse and Thunderer 36 sec turret traverse too?

    • @Kaga Kai Ohio (also with nuclear powered turrets + best winrate) and Thunderer are just as good BB’s as Kremlin nowdays. Ohio is probably better. So they must be all OP?

    • ​@MrGrach *GK has way better armor scheme than Kremlin hands down.* Kremlin shatters more than GK? Are you joking? GK has like 85% of its deck covered in 50mm plate ive had my whole squad of tier 10 RN CV carpet bombs shatter on GK deck doing 0 damage (lined it up perfectly, while Kremlin has only its mid section (roughly 50-60%) covered in 60mm while its massive fore and aft decks are 32mm. Plus HE shells rarely cross the 50mm treshold and when it does it usually also cross the 60mm treshold. Henri with IFHE is the only that comes to mind. Kremlin AA is nothing special since it does not have a fighter consumable so as a CV i rather pick on Kremlin than a GK (especially with AP bombs). The only good things about Kremlin are its guns and above average armor, but its easier to citadel a Kremlin than a Republique. Even +6 (max +15) sec turret traverse and a last 0.5 sigma nerf and i would just fine!

  4. I guess wg decided: “Ye Kremlin’s a bit OP, let’s make a ship that can deal with it”

  5. Alektra Lainheart

    This ship nuts, the pen are so dumb. REALLY WG!!! REALLY!!!!

  6. stefanos perivolaris

    u want a citadel only firing ship??

  7. Yes, I can see clearly that the AA-health will be nerfed by 15% in the next update cycle.

  8. A cruiser barely devastate a Yamato with her 220mm guns

    • Yamato took about a dozen 500kg bombs and about as many torps before it started to sink, the USN planes actually had to do a torp strike just on one side to finally get it to the bottom.
      Of course that happened in real life, so a piddly russian cruiser sends it packing with 5 broadsides. Pathetic.

    • @Luis Nunes as far as i remember it took 18 500kg and dozens of smaller bombs and 21 torps, but don’t quote me on that. They really did quite a number on this ship

    • @Jakub W. But in soviet russia no one cares about real life, right? 😉

    • @Luis Nunes definitely. Entire russian tech tree with few exceptions is the evidence of that

    • @Jakub W. This is exactly what I want to say
      Petropavlovsk’s 220mm guns have almost same penetration curve with Starlingrad’s 305mm guns. This is not making any sense

  9. Wish you’d gone full click bait on the thumbnail like: ‘1000000 damage INSANITY’ or something lol

  10. undertakernumberone1

    hmm… it’s kinda funny… german cruiser strength was meant to be the AP. Which basically works only under 10km against non angled targets with its real impact, due to not that impressive penetration and bounce angles. German cruiser accuracy also i think ain’t the best.

    Soviet Cruisers: Less damage (relatively spoken), but better pen, better angles, better speed, better fuzes… oh and better precision in CQC…

    So unless the soviet cruiser ain’t brain dead, i could see them outfight for example a Hindenburg relatively well… in the melee that was meant to be where teh german AP shines

    • Gonzalo Javier Gimenez

      As a German Line player i can say with 10k battles on my back, Hindy before “balans” was a crap for a Heavy -no even close- Cruiser and After “buff” – lol this was a funny joke- still underpower and sad intent for a T10 ship in compare with others, Z52 is useless in the current Cv+Radar meta, and Gk saddest BBs in the game (turtle back only made agony longer).
      I say it before on other videos on different WoWs CC, WG acomplish her task of made to WoWs same they do on WoT: send german line at trash cann and OP all Russ ships just because Russ shananigan
      WG made it clear, they dont care about balans or user(players) opinions. They will pushing Soviets politics in game.

    • @solace e  pardon me, but I left the game for personal reasons… HOWEVER, I stayed away because of the release of the Smolensk, The Puerto Rico fiasco, the release of the broken Soviet BB’s (more balanced now), and other blatant power creep moves or just bad business by WG… dont judge my reasoning without knowing it

      (P.S, this Bias western player loved my Soviet DD’s)

    • Np with good russian ship but when i encounter a Stalingrad broadside a 6km with my bismark and i’m the one getting punished it feel broken 5 or 6 pens salvo for 3 or 4 k dmg. the same thing happens vs any cruiser and if he don’t get out quickly the second salvo is deadly. Anyway russian people don’t need op ship to be good at this game.

    • They also said Henri AP is great. 240mm btw.

    • Russian bias factor*

  11. These 220mm guns makes no sense but it is soviet after all…

  12. Well.. No one ever accused wg of knowing wtf their are doing 😂

  13. I’m surprised it doesnt have a citadel accelerator consumable .

  14. you think you’re shooting a 220 but it’s a permanently reload boosted french 380

    • Feench 380mm cant penetrate Kreml armor at 13km every 10s 🤔

    • @sebastian arley My first lesson about Kremlin was that my JB don’t do shit to him flat broadside at 14km. 2nd lesson was that Republique don’t do shit either.

  15. I can already see the first nerf this ship will receive… after 6 months with this shit messing up the MM at high tier, WG finally will admitted that’s a bit broken… so they will nerf Petro AA a bit…

    • turning radius increased by 10m

    • Ser Garlan Tyrell

      @ArmchairWarrior Or like many Soviet ships of the era, spontaneously decide to become an artificial reef.

    • @Ser Garlan Tyrell I wish, but WeeGee won’t do that to their precious soviet babies. Nerfs this thing will receive: AA damage reduced by 3%, AA range reduced by 2%, Turret traverse increased by 2%. But because of they don’t want the nerfs to hit too hard they’ll buff it’s noes armor by 4mm. All because their spreadsheets told them it was a good idea.

  16. Really, the navies of WW2 were just ridiculous. Didn’t they realise that 220mm guns built in Russia were so clearly superior to British 380mm and American 406mm guns? Didn’t they understand the futility of all of Yamato’s armour against heavy cruiser guns? It’s so obvious that a heavy cruiser can devastate the largest and most powerful battleship ever built. That’s just logic, really.

    • ​@Herubino EVC Russian players are not the majority in WoWS. Far from it. EU server is the largest and even Asia peaks sometimes higher than RU server.

    • ​@The Hippy Griff Why bother with any other heavy cruiser than Stalingrad? Because there is not other real tier 10 super heavy cruiser currently available. At least Stalingrad is somewhat historical (its hull was 70% completed iirc and its crazy guns were made), BUT at tier 9 there is the Alaska is just as “overpowered” as Stalin for its tier. You cannot call Stalin overpowered and not call Alaska and Puerto Rico OP too then by the same measure (only PR is not available).

      Ohio is better than Kremlin in so many ways and Thunderer is too. Only Smolensk is truly OP, but there is also the Colbert, its similar but without smoke. Sinop was heavily nerfed, its not OP anymore. Kremlin needs like a minor 0.5 nerf to its sigma (and even that might be too much) and maybe a minor nerf to its turret traverse and it would be perfectly fine. The proliferation of 457mm guns by WG was a mistake.

      PS. Oh and Soviet navy was about the same size as German navy in WW2 in 1941.

    • Ser Garlan Tyrell

      @The Hippy Griff Thank you. The RN had more classes of ships (either in commission or laid down) not currently in the game that could be, than the Soviets had ships in that period, period. From the Crimean war up until the 1950’s, they were basically non-existent.

      Fair enough if they have to keep adding ships, and some by necessity need to be paper ones for “balans” reasons, but the Russian line in particular seem to have gone way beyond that and they take a name of something that was thought up, and the rest is just straight out of a stalin-a-boo’s wet dream.
      Like there’s no way, even with pretty good aerodynamics programs that the shells have that little drag (or manage to go anywhere near where they’re aimed/don’t destroy the barrels in 30 shots).

      For reference their entire fleet can be summed up as follows:

      A fair amount of destroyer classes actually, I can’t find that they did very much at all, and the single largest class, the Skoryy-class isn’t even in WoWS.

      They had a couple light cruiser classes (the Sverdlov class was pretty big at 14 ships, but nowhere near the swarm that was ordered) between the end of WW1 and the 60’s when everything was missiles… Just 2, for a total of 19 ships.

      Battlecruisers – This is where things start getting funny… There was the 4x Borodino’s of WW1 (aka Izmail), none of which were close to being completed. Then there was the Kronstadts, 2 of them, neither more than about 1/10 complete. And finally there were the Stalingrads, of which they planned a whole 4, managed to lay down 3, but only launched one hull, which almost immediately sunk/grounded its self.

      Battleships (dreadnoughts) – 4x Imperatritsa Mariya-class (aka the Gangut) (including 1 of a sub-class), and then the 1x Imperator Nikolai I was laid down. Then the hilarious one, the Sovet Union class (Sovetsky Soyuz), of these 60,000 ton behemoths, none were even close to complete, though 4 were laid down, out of a total of 15 ordered. Yup, some Soviet union official, frankly living in fantasy land, ordered 15 essentially Yamatos, despite the Soviet union not having made a battleship since a first generation dreadnought, and not having made a ship larger than 8,000 tons since (and that was the Kirov class that had major problems too). And they were ordered with 16″ of armour despite soviet steel industry being incapable of making much more than 9″, so they resorted to stacking 2x 8″ plates on top of each other, which means that their actual effective thickness was more like 13″, or even less if you compared it to the better armours of Britain, Germany & Italy. And then the guns had horrendous accuracy problems, a trait inherited from their Italian designs.

      @Ser Garlan Tyrell woah there, you’ll make WG cry with such facts about their glorious paper navy.

    • ​@Ser Garlan Tyrell So does it mean the WW2 era German navy was non existent too? Being the about same size as Soviet navy and all in 1941? You do know that Russia is a land power? You do know that Russia somehow still managed to build the worlds 2nd largest navy after WW2? Leaving RN in the dust even now lol. Its a fucking game, you dont have to get your panties twisted over a fucking game. That Petro is still WIP and will be nerfed hard.

  17. while kremlin ias being shot at, just remember the reason why WG nerfed 10k HP from Odin, ” too resiliant”

  18. Remember back then when they made the german Cruisers supposed to be “AP focused Cruisers” ? Well, the downsides were so severe on them that powercreep came soon and buffs were needed. Every single time players asked for a bit better performing AP, especially in regards of penetration/pen angles. Every time we did get a “njet” from WG. They buffed things like HE, reload and Heals instead.

    Now they throw this on their bias line no one asked for, 10 times stronger than players wanted it on ger Cruisers. But thats not everything, the Petro also got much better Armor (Hindis Armor is only better at close range), much better concealment, much better firing angles, it has better range, its faster, AA is better etc.
    WG is killing this game…

    • My first game in Hindenburg I had 8 kills and around 4k base exp,, I might still have an old screenshot not sure.. But yes it was an absolute beast.. AP citadelling cruisers and bbs everywhere.. Now its all noob armor in combination with Priority target..Priority target is basicly a big nerf to AP and dds.. Anyway I still love Hindenburg cause of its german hydro and torpedos..

    • @RepaleoN Halo True. For me the Hindi is the only good german ship in high tier. Made my overall dmg record of 309k with her 🙂

  19. this is the equivalent of a chinese company making a FIFA game where chinese players have better stats than those playing in the champions league

  20. Its a shame this originally historical intended game has become world id Russian paper ships, the mightiest battleship ever built dies to like 2 salvos from 220mm guns
