ST. Balance changes. The Stalingrad cruiser.

Added HE shells with the following characteristics:

Initial Shell Velocity 950 m / s; Maximum HE Shell Damage 4500; Chance of Fire on Target Caused by HE Shell 33%.

Firing Range is reduced from 22,890 to 20,350. Reload Time of Main Battery is increased from 18.5 to 20 seconds. Rotation Speed of Main Battery is increased from 4.5 to 5.0  deg. / sec.

The parameters of the dispersion ellipse are set to similar values of the Graf Spee cruiser (better than battleships, but worse than common cruisers). The parameters of ricochet angles of the AP shells are changed to the standard values.

In this form, the cruiser will become more versatile, while retaining the possibility of an effective game while using armor-piercing shells. However, shooting armor-piercing now becomes more demanding to the player's ability to choose the right moment for the volley.

Please note that the information in the Development Blog is preliminary.

These are changes to the first version of Stalingrad. The version with better AP ricochet angles and no HE.

Well, it brings it more in-line with a step up from the Kronstadt, rather that a ship from a different planet.  The AP only version, while being very appealing to some of the elite players, could be frustrating for good to average players.

That tall, flat superstructure - AP spam time for British cruisers.

Edinburgh's detection range is 9 kilometres. Plenty close enough. Position, smoke up, shoot. If they give this Soviet paper obscenity radar, Edinburgh guns reach out further than any radar.

As far as I know, there are tactics for avoiding that fate. I suspect most Stalingrad captains will be so drunk with power they will overlook the obvious. I think we're in for a major surprise and a lot of disappointed Stalingrad captains.

The unicums will have their reign, it'll be short lived, then the plebs will get her...and she will be garbage.

Look on the bright side, they didn't give her the 50mm plating that Moskva got.

Actually, the Stalingrad does have the 50 mm plating. The Moskva's bow belt was increased to 50 mm to match the Stalingrad.

You will be waiting a substantial amount of time for a significant amount of nonunicums to unlock her.

You'd be shocked how fast people can unlock stuff when motivated.

It's 28k Steel. No non-unicum is gonna be getting their hands on that much any time soon.

unless you can consistently play in typhoon, there is 0% chance of getting her.

There's around 8-9 nonunicums that will be unlocking the Stalingrad at the end of this season from 5D. 

 

Hard work, teamwork, and selflessness can surmount even a unicum team. It's a critical reason as to why I like 5D. What a fully unicum team can do naturally can be defeated by a non unicum team. Not all of the time! But definitely enough for the Stalingrad flags.

Actually as long as you consistently win 15+ battles each season, you'll get her eventually.

They haven't put Flint or Black on sale. They might offer bundles that include Steel, but at this point I doubt they'll just plain sell it or the Stalingrad.

Indirect sales of Steel probably. Likely from future Seasonal Crates (thus far, Halloween and Santa).

WG will get money off crate sales, lucky spenders get their Steel from the crates and can put them towards whatever Steel ship they have an interest in.

I'd assume Coal will join too, so you'd have Coal dropping often like flags and credits, and Steel dropping less-often, but around the same rate as a Ship (Santa) or a Visual Replacer Camo (Halloween).
