Congratulations!

It is likely to be a while before I accumulate enough to acquire mine.

Thanks.

I have a lot of Premium/Elite ships and a lot of flags so it builds fast.

I don't have Moskva yet (at T9) but I opened it in port and compared. Kronstadt seems longer and sleeker when you can look at them in person.

 

Now what do I do for a Capt??? Use my 19pt Donskoi one or start using 1 of the special Russian Brother Capt's (Znamensky) sitting in reserves???

I have plenty on the ships, but I am trying to avoid paying for the conversion.

I holding off on Free XP ships until after Part 2 just in case I feel the need.

Yeah, I won't be keeping Donskoi once I get Moskva. Haven't kept any of the Russian Cruisers. The thing is I have Kutuzov, Molotov, Makarov, and Murmansk which all use that 19pt Capt. It wouldn't be a good fit with Moskva so I either transfer and respec it once I get Moskva or do another Capt and just use the 19pt one on the Premiums?  It's funny cause I have 17 10pt regular (also have the 2 special Brothers so 19 10 pt Capt's) Russian capt's in my reserves from Santa crates and duplicate ships. I only have 12 Russian ships in total!!! LOL

I'm waiting till I see if you can combine coal w/ Free XP or if there's any exchange rate for Free XP -> coal to get the Salem.

Congrats! I got it too (now FXP is down to almost nothing).

I am adding upgrades but am unsure on some. Started another thread for it:

https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/160255-recommended-modules-for-kronshtadt/

Congrat's. 

2 games in it and kind of a mixed bag. Angled it seems to bounce everything and it is surprisingly nimble for such a big boat. The fast reload is nice too. BUT the guns have pretty bad accuracy and the AP reminds me a lot of Roma. Lots of overpens, shatters, and bounces. I had a flat broadside Buffalo at just under 6km, stuck on an island/reverse/forward/etc...) and managed 1 cit and a bunch of disappointing volleys. Single ebst volley so far has been vs another Kron that came around an island and I had broadside up close. Cit + like 18K damage. Pretty much it seems to be 5-7K volleys. :Smile_sceptic:

Only 2 games so with more time...

I ended up grabbing Viktor Znamensky from the reserves and used enough elite Capt XP to jump him to 14pts which gives a good workable set of skills going forward.

Kron looks a lot fatter to me and isn't quite as sleek as the Moskva.  Stalingrad definitely reminds me of the Moskva though.

What does its credit multiplier look like, approximate?

Excluding prem acct, does it break even, make creds?

thanks

750X Free XP

I've got 200k.  I'll just buy the rest.  With the doubloons I already have from something else, that will make it about $50.  Pretty reasonable for a Tier 9.

Enjoy your tier 7 battleship disguised as a tier 9 cruiser just so it isn't threatened by Asashio.

LOL!

Honestly I play 80% battleships, and in the time since Asashio has come out, an Asashio has landed a torp hit on me exactly one time I think...  The threat from Asashio was really overblown.
