Ranked out mostly on Gremy only lost a star once. Got it last year from Santa Crates. Better than Kami sisters iMHO.

The Gremlin has darn good torpedoes and it had darn good guns, AP that can citadel light cruisers to add to the mayhem. The Kamikaze and clones bring torps and poor guns combined with a glass jaw if it takes hits.

Just in, 10k battles guy use premium to seal club T5.

It requires a very specific captain to make the Gremmy great.  I couldn't make her work with Grozy captain because at tier 10, Russian DDs don't need Expert Marksman, but the Gremmy absolutely does need it.  The best captain to put in her is one of those special Russian captains that has Expert Marksman as a special ability so that you can maximize your turret traverse.  Once I did that, the Gremmy became a LOT better, because I could finally keep her guns mostly on target, or at least get them turned in a timely manner.

Yeah, you have to sacrifice AR for EM, but that's the only difference in builds between Gremmy and Groz. Not a huge deal IMO.

Gremy's a helluva DD. If she aint the best mid-tier DD, she's a definite contender for the title.

I only played WoWS when it was in closed beta, getting back into the game now. I bought the Gremy pack back in the day, what's the meta status on the ship as of now? To use WoT references, are we talking pure rarity like a Type 59, or is it OP like an E-25?

I don't know the WOT references but it is an extremely good ship at it's tier when played well.  When played poorly it gets deleted very quickly.

I used Okhotnik instead over Gremyashchy.  Seven 130mm guns with 5.7km detection sure made for a great counter to all the pesky Kamikaze-clones sneaking around.

Rare like a mutant. Not as OP as the E-25. It was when open water stealth firing was a thing, but any more it’s just a very capable ship that can carry with a good captain.

Rare as the Type 59, not as powerful as the E25. Imagine if someone got an elited tier VI tank in WoT into tier V. It’s just a bit better all around than its contemporaries, but there’s no one aspect of it that makes it overpowered. That’s the Gremyaschchy

Wish I could sell my Gremy to a desperate player.  It does me no good sitting in mothballs for years at a time since I pretty much never play DDs.

It was undoubtedly more powerful back in the days when open water stealth firing was still a thing.  For general play though, I tend to enjoy the Okhotnik more, simply because the Gremy is pretty much like all other Russian DDs, whereas the Okhotnik is quite unique.

Looks like I won't be getting much use out of it then.

It is still extremely powerful, remember that it earned its reputation for being very overpowered when it took 15 points to get CE so few players were able to stealth fire with it.
