Is the Kronshtadt Worth the gold for 150K EXP?

As it says on the tin, wondering whether I should spend the simoleons for the gold to convert 150K exp. Heard that the Kron's going the way of the Mighty Mo, and I am worried that I may not have the time to grind out the free exp for her normally.

If you think that you’d ever want a big Russian battlecruiser, and Stalingrad’s off of the table, then yes. Otherwise? I find it to be a boring ship with only middling effectiveness against targets that are paying attention and/or know how to play the game. You can’t overmatch anything, and your HE is meh. You’ll take deep bites of side on targets...and that’s about it.

ITs worth it to not get it in the Santa boxes again. IT all depends on your play style.

For me its not worth it, I rather wait for other ships that fit my play style.

FWIW no matter how good the ship is on paper it still requires significant effort to get good in it.

It will be a month or so before Kron is pulled. You may be able to even get the 150k Free XP through grinding, or at least make the conversion amount smaller.

I like it quite well, but you still have time to build up more FXP and not have to pay quite so much. Up to you, though- your money, spend it how you like.

That and may wait and see if they do another 35-1 for New Years like they did last year (or was that technically this year?)

You still have over a month to build up FXP since the Xmas event will be 5 weeks long and I'd bet dollars to donuts they'll be having a 1:35 conversion sale before they take the Mushy and Kron off the market,  so I'd hold off spending the doubloons now if unless you really want the Kron right now.

FWIW I've enjoyed the games I've played in the Kron, the ship is honestly one of the best for grinding missions in co-op since she's fast, hits hard consistently, has decent reload and the bots don't know how to aim for weak spots.

What came from previous year, WoWs did have a sale on port slot with 75% off and the conversion of 35 FXP instead of the normal 25.

 

So you should wait toward end of year and save more on your conversion

Edit: try to get the Musashi as well, she is the 2nd to the MO in credit printing

Yeah, you've got a bit of time left. Why blow cash if you don't have to?

 

As far as "is it worth it" goes, I rather like mine (although it's been awhile since I've played it).

Kron is a great ship, really worth. If that ship fits your playstyle only you can say.

I like mine. But as others have said it has to fit your playstyle - and you have to a have a sense of humor about not cit'ing a broadside at 8 km....cause it's the Kron.

 

Tough as hell and if you know when to be  'that aggressive charger because all you BB's are sitting back' you can and will turn the tide of battle.

Thanks for the advice, I was just worried that I may not have the time, but I think I may be able to manage it in a month.

I already have the Musashi, and I thoroughly enjoy her.

Musashi

Another options is the Salem, she had the cost of pre battle reduced and further with clan building. With those calculated, she is the 3rd of credit making (all the credit making signals+perm camo)

Wait - didn’t they say Kronstadt will be gone with 8.12? 

 

That’ll be next week no?

Not worth it.  Mine sits in port most of the time.

it's not very tanky, but it can citadel broadside BBs out to 20km

It's only worth it, if CB ends up being T9 with only 1BB allowed.

Keep grinding until we get closer to the removal time. Then make the jump at a much reduced price or free. Having said that if you are only 150k away then you are all ready pretty close. That would be cheap enough for me to do it.

That's my opinion as well. For me it was a huge waste of 750K FXP and I n longer play it (too frustrating with such wonky and unreliable guns).

If I didn't have it, I'd wait and not use doubloons.  I expect this ship will be available again in some form as it's not in high demand.
