How can you put a ship with 12" guns in a battle with cruisers with a max 8" guns. That is a 4" (50%) advantage over any cruiser. It has 70K+ HP, it is huge, it can over pen any cruiser (and some BBs) that are bow-on to it.

Now, give me a 12" USS Alaska class battlecruiser and I'll go head-to-head against it.

Until then, the guns need to be nerfed, as well as its armor and HP pool.

She seems perfectly balanced :3

 

Though from the sound of it, op is a salty USN fanboi who is mad about a 'fake' Russian ship

Played her last night....

Was the target of every ship that could shoot me...

So far running away, err,  kiting, got me hit for 3 cits....

That hp can melt fast. 

She is balanced.

Hmmmmm , let's see . The other free xp ships at that tier have 18 and 16 inch guns but 12 inch is OP . Deal with it .

Ummm if you have played the ship you would know OP is not a term that describes it. And those 305MM guns are very inconsistent and wonky. Give me the 12 203MM guns from Buffalo on the Kronshtadt's hull and we can talk about OP. I am not impressed with Kronshtadt's guns in the least. Remind me of Roma's.

I am all for any new ship (especially US BB or Cruiser) so bring Alaska on. Just pointing out Kronshtadt is not even close to OP.

Cruiser, I said. Don't care about free xp or otherwise, but CA v CA there is a huge imbalance IMHO.

Krondstadt wasnt planned to be a normal cruiser, it, along with Stalingrad, were designed as larger cruisers/battlecruisers that were MEANT to fight Heavy cruisers and light cruisers with relative ease, or in other words, they were designed to be cruiser killers

I have only been able to watch this ship in action via streamers today, wow, it gets a lot of citadels on others, at strange angles that are uncommon and even the streamers are surprised, seems to be like a mini-republique.

So what , treat her like a BB and move on . In the context of the game she'll face BB's with guns ranging from 11 to 18 inches , she's just fresh meat for them .

I bet alaska will come as a reward for clan wars (maybe the next one after stalingrad?).

You couldn't tell it was horribly unbalanced from its raw stats? Not to mention its a russian premium, what were you expecting.

Kronshtadt wishes it was a mini Republique.

pffh, a few days ago i used my 750k free xp to take my first commander to 19pts. i knew krunchshtadt was coming too, no regrets. I already have Nelson, missouri and musashi. I just don't think this one will be as enjoyable as those are. seems like a stinker honestly. i might use birthday money and buy some american crates, the drop rate for special flags seems fairly random... atleast on the PTS version they were. unlike yamamoto crates which spit out wyverns half the time, bah.

it suffers from the eugen/hipper syndrome. The tankiness makes up for the crappy guns.

It more like American playerbase rages hard...

WG fix is Release USS Guam ... slightly better then krondstadt but at cost of 760 000 instead of 750k lol

The question is: is it Kutuzov/Nikolai balans or merely Molotov Balans?

The Moskva that tried to angle and got cit'd to death by mine would agree with you. So would the DM that thought it was hidden just right and got cit'd for all its trouble anyway. The Gearing that lost 90% of its HP to 4 hits from mine would, as well. The MO and Iowa who got superstructure shredded by my AP, they might agree somewhat, too. The Shima that lost its last 1/3 HP to 1 hit and just rolled over and sank, betting he'd agree with you.

 

I, however, disagree with you. Because I can.

It's so much better than the 750k I wasted on Mushyyucky. Kronnie's guns actually hit things. Also, it isn't "tanky", the only reason it can "take" damage is because it has so many HPs, those vanish quickly, I promise you.

It ain't no BB. It is, though, one heck of a cruiser.(CoughcoughcoughBattlecruisercoughcoughcough)
