I see why cruisers are so OP now

Russia did not build any battleships or aircraft carriers. 

If Destroyers were too powerful it would be like light tanks being too powerful. 

Russia did build plenty of cruisers though.  And that is why cruisers are so ridiculously OP in this game.  

Russian cruisers don't dominate.  But it does help them, cruisers dominate, so Russian cruisers will do well like all cruisers do.

How are Cruisers "ridiculously OP"?

There are a handful of overperforming cruisers, but overall I'd call them the weakest of the three surface ship types.  In fact, I'd say most of the cruisers between tier 4 and tier 9 are underpowered and have difficulty influencing the outcome of the game.

Huh?

Good ones (e.g. Buddy or Chapayev), yes.

OP? No.

If it's OP that's because you drive it well, or WG mis-tiered it.

Except Kronstadt and Stalingrad, the only two cruisers that fit the argument.

Why is it that every post this guy (the OP) has made has been a cry baby thread?  I mean seriously this guy is not getting the hint no wonder his threads continuously get locked.

OP, it looks like you just got an Omaha?  Congratulations; you are at the beginning of a long and fascinating journey.  But really, try that and Dallas and/or Pensacola out for a while and then get back to us about how OP they all are.

The CA/CL as a group is by far the worst surface ships in WoWs. Weak Armor, Small Caliber Main Guns, Hysterical Low HP pool, Neutered Gun Range, Dispersion numbers so wide and ineffective.

Every other Surface Ship Can and Do Destroy them with ease. WG gave Radar to these Ships to bolster the inadequate performance and an outcry of OP rose up from the depths of Sunken Ships.

Instead of Giving more Armour and longer reaching Guns with an increased ROF, WG placed Radar in these sorry excuses of "Fighting Ships".

Radar was the wrong choice! Concealment is and will always be the the Downfall of WoWs.

Remove the Concealment From ALL From the beginning to the end. Make the Smoke Semi Transparent. Ships silhouette's are always visible though obscured.

How many memes are there of cruisers single-salvo deleting battleships from 20km?

Just play all classes and roll with it.  If you're constantly being wrecked by cruisers then play them more and learn their tactics, strengths and weaknesses.

But neither of those are 'traditional' cruisers.

Battle-"cruisers", yes. But not "cruisers". The speed to out run what they can't outgun, and the guns to outgun what they can't out run. Battlecruisers are capital ships through and through, since their inception, with the ultimate form of their design concept culminating in what became known as the "fast"-battleship.

Battlecruisers had previously been designated as battleships. Your definition is accurate though - lifted the same from Frigates don't engage sails of the line.

Bad logic is bad.

Why is it that all whine posts have such a similar writing style.

Because someone just tabbed out of the game after getting their as* handed to them by...X?
