I have no idea why this thing isn't permanently for sale, it rebalances CV and BB like nobodies business. :trollface:

 

Merry Christmas and thanks WG!

*sigh*  :(

 

I was really hoping for a Gremy.  I have been wanting her since OBT.  Perhaps next time...

I hear they come in the 1$ boxes, so that might up your odds if you don't care about getting a 3$ Tirpitz or something.

That ship honestly does not care what tier it gets into.

 

It doesn't, but at T7 you'll see Blys, which is like the Gremys bigger better knifefighting brother.  At T5 no two DDs can take it so you can just run wild and carry a bad team.

Working as intended.

 

"Nikolai and Gremy will not be sold again" -WG

 

Technically they haven't sold them.  

 

They sold a present, which might possibly be a Gremy or Nikolai.  They gave them away too.   It's a pretty fine line but they haven't outright sold them yet.

Atagos can come in $5 boxes and $3 boxes

I wouldn't call her Op just yet. Sure you had a great game, but it will start to run down the more battles you play in her. To me, Gramy is just like any other tier 5 D. Nothing more

Yeah, I think the 1$ boxes can only have the T5 and below ships.  So Nik, Gremy, Emden, Marblehead, Itchy.  Not sure if there are any others.  So it might be better odds than 3$ boxes that include all the T6-8 ships.  Unless you want those higher tier ships anyway.

Just another DD, nothing to see here.  Move along.

Even with the MM throwing you in T7 games most of the time, it's anything but just another DD.

As someone who had gremy since she was added in CBT. Gremy is not op, she's just a relic of a time when minekaze had 10 km torps and the nicholas had better guns. For that era gremy was a perfect middle ground. Key word is WAS, nich got altered a bit and minekaze... well we all know what happened to that.

Not to be sold, but I went ahead and got me a $3. box after all the other $5. and $3 ones from yesterday, and it had a Gremy in it.  :)

I just got mine and its so great.

 

I have had Nikolai since it first came out and Gremy is so much more OP. It lacks any genuine vulnerability.

As someone that has owned a Gremy since CBT it is OP in a support role and is able to invisible fire and torp from concealment but on the other side of the coin I know for a fact that in a 1 on 1 knife fight a b hull Nicolas will take it apart in short order if the driver has half a clue. With that said I love mine and wouldn't give it up for anything!

A phenomenon of being a Gremy that I'm quickly getting to know:

You get shot at by everything, sometimes even when its at long range and there is a nearby friendly shooting at the guy shooting at me.

 

In a match, a few VI's but otherwise a tier V battle. Ryujo sends his entire air wing at me 3 times, gets 1 bomb hit total. Second strike got me in hot water due to getting shot at by a whole gang of ships while going evasive near a B cap. Made a good score, for extra funtage I happened upon the CV and sank him, but mainly this was a roflstomp win because the CV did nothing but try to snipe a DD (me) anytime I was spotted, and basically did nothing else.

 

Have had matches where I had lackluster damage and kills, but my team won easily at least partially because the entire enemy team shot at me, however distant or unlikely, at every opportunity. Reminds me of what used to happen to Clevelands while they were OP back when their main guns benefited from BFT/AFT.

except when you busy manhandling 5 of enemy ships on one flank alone and suddenly you get you the last hope literally 10 mins into the game and only enemy ships dead are ones you sunk. Than you cant carry the team

Fast, maneuverable RU Gunboat DD.

 

Great, accurate guns at range.

 

8km torpedoes for a Tier V RU DD.  Tech Tree RU DDs don't get 8km until Tier VIII Tashkent.  Premium Tier VII Leningrad gets long range torps but she faces up to Tier IX competition.  Tier VIII Tashkent can deal with Tier X.

 

Takes the weaknesses of Gnevny and "Makes them go away."

 

As a Tier V, Gremyaschy faces up to Tier VII competition.  This "Tier V Seal" is not your ordinary seal.
