Move Kutuzov to Tier7

Dear WG, please consider moving the Kutuzov to tier 7 from tier 8.  Most battles I play with it is against T9 & T10 and I literally get blown out of the water within minutes.  Thus I’m not helping the team at all.  It can’t take the big hit from those high tier guns no matter what angle I play, and its guns (152mm) do very little damage.

Anyone else notice this change?

You want to move the statistically #1, borderline overpowered premium tier eight cruiser down one tier? I think this is a PEBCAK issue rather than the ship not performing up to par.

Nope. Kutuzov performs just fine even when bottom tiered.

Totally agree.  But, you should have paired the Belfast to that request to move it to Tier VI.  It's equally irritating that we have to face Tier IX ships in the puny Belfast.  At Tier VI, it's natural home, it would be perfectly balanced.  Please add this rider to your request and I'm all in.

Kutz performs perfectly fine bottom-tiered. Infact, I think its one of the few ships people prefer to get uptiered in, just so they can do more damage. There's a reason it isn't sold anymore.

If your 152mm guns aren't doing any damage, it's because the enemy ship is dead from the fires you have wrought upon it.

The ship maneuvers well enough, at least at the distance you should be from reds anyway. You have smoke for when things get really nasty and honestly, if you find yourself using smoke often, it's because you got too close. Stay out and snipe, catch ships on fire, and look for those who repair too early and set them on fire again. The ship is a pest...be that pest; goad BB's to fire at you and dodge. That's a wasted salvo. Play it to its strengths.

You realize that the New US cruiser line will have 152mm guns all the way to tier 10 right? =p

Not only that..it loves getting uptiered into CV games as well.

Pretty sure this "long time reader first time poster" is a trolling.

Sir, I am not trying to insult you when I say that you just need to work a little more on playing the Kutuzov more effectively. Learning how to maximize its strengths and minimize its weaknesses. If you are getting blown out of the water in minutes than you are making inexperienced mistakes and exposing yourself to getting deleted.

I am speechless, The KUTUZOV is not a mushy ship like

  • Atlanta
  • Minotaur

The KUTUZOV is very tanky and very annoying to BB drivers especially MO drivers. Its impossible to get 42k DMG from one salvo to the KUTUZOV, if you see that, then its your fault. very bad idea to lower her any further.. BUT a word of caution, if  a friendly BB driver get to close to your HE shells in smoke, you are going to catch him on fire. and when that happens you will end up with 14 games picks on just a 7 shells 1 fire hit on him. Be careful

You apparently haven't figured Kutuzov out.  If you are getting blasted out of the water that easily, you are making yourself too much of a target.  Use islands more, use smoke more, use range more, use rudder more, or use all of the above more.  It took me several games to figure her out, too.  Kutuzov needs no help.  There is a reason WG decided to not sell her again.  When played properly, she is just nasty.

(That is was OP said, right?)
