So since cbt gremy has received no buffs, has slow torpedoes, and only 4 guns with horrific turret traverse, and has lost its ability to stealth fire. I propose we buff its turret traverse so it isn't as difficult to play. I think it would go a long way in making the ship more comfortable to play.

Sure.

Move it to T6 and give it the same buffs as the slightly inferior Gnevny got when it got bumped up.

Uh, I don't think so. Regardless of what has happened since, the tag OP is forever attached to the Gremy. Can't even imagine the uproar that would ensue.

She still hasn't shed her rep of being the OP tier 5 gun boat.  I don't feel it when I drive her - that turret traverse is just bad.  But I've been putting that down to me just being an average player.

Saw the title, immediately came to the thread.  Was not disappointed.   10/10 would read again!

This is some gold trolling. I expected nothing less seeing this pop up.

I agree it could use some love, but you'll only find hate toward it by the majority of the community.

Around May WG mentioned they were thinking of making it available again because it wasn't special anymore.

With all the CVs in the game now, lets buff the Nikolai as well!   it has been power-creeped into obscurity!

I agree. I think Cleveland's AA suite would be about right:Smile_izmena::Smile-_tongue:

If this is meant to be a serious post, there are other ships that would likely need to receive a buff as well, namely Gnevy, Anshan, and Fushun since like Gremy, all of these are Gnevy based ships.

I would say move it to tier 7 and balance it there (in the modern broken game meta) then bring it back to tier 5 as was in tier 7.

Thats fair.

Don't see any reasons given to not give her a buff in replies above...

Its already incredibly strong for its tier:

Its true that when you turn your guns cant keep up..but that doesn't stop those guns from obliterating any same tier DD.

Torps are slow but they have 8km range..which is massive for that tier.

its very fast for its tier.

Concealment is pretty good for a Russian DD.

Kinda requires a dedicated capt to make it work well.

 

The problem i think most people are finding is that its not nearly as strong when it gets up tiered. With MM changes it sees more high tier matches where its strengths as a T5 are kinda meh...but thats true for all T5s..vs T7s.

Its one of the reasons that balance is so messed up in this game...having ships that are "balanced vs. a ship 2 tiers higher" is not possible.

Against its own tier its massively OP, vs. higher tiers its really not that special..which leaves it in the "probably too good to buff"...as it would make it too strong vs. its own tiers...in order for it to fight well vs. high tiers.

Seriously.  We should give her more range and better sigma.  There are still a couple of cruiser captains on the map who aren't yet shaking in terror the moment she is spotted.

Give Gremy the invisi fire option back. And real glass windows for the bridge. I asked for the last months ago, in the current state she is unplayable

*cough*

I'm pretty happy with my Gremy.  But hey -- if they wanna buff its turret traverse I won't complain.
