Shes got a large hit pool, devestating guns and gets stronger as you close on the enemy but she gets melted fairly easily and you must rely on smart damage control.  She won’t be for everyone but those that tame her will crush.

Neat video. I am so hyped for Soviet BBs. The high skill floor high skill ceiling brawling concept is much needed for the game, and will allow BB mains to perform a lot better in pub matches. The sniping meta we sometimes see today is less than exciting.

 

One thing I did notice... when you brought up radar, you said 'no class is safe'. As far as Inknow, the radar can only detect BBs and CVs. Has that changed?

It still has asashio type deep water radar that only detects bbs & cvs

Is this not the most ridiculous thing out of all the ridiculous things WG has done?

I mean come on if you have to go to this length to make it "fair" just leave the stupid radar off entirely.

When I was testing the Kreml, I liked it - it doesn't really feel OP to me.

I originally thought the Kreml was pretty strong but then I realized I averaged around the same damage in the Montana throughout the time I was playing the Kreml -- but the playstyles are significantly different. To me, it's a well designed ship and for a first-pass ship surprisingly well balanced.

I feel that Kreml is designed for similar meta that GK is designed for, with similar issues.  With GK currently falling behind the other BBs as a result. Except when GK line was first introduced and tried we did not have ships like Worcester and Harugumo, and updated CV bombs.  I guess we will see how things will play out, but I am definitely not in any rush to get my hands on the new BBs.

I love my GK, and loathe to fight the Kremlin. That thing is going to wreck my GK if I show any slight angle, so a bow tanking snoozefest will ensue 😭

So does the Kreml is designed for CQB fights using the main gun? What about secondaries?

I'm looking forward to exploiting this line of ships so much...

Big guns, with armor that wont let the enemy team punish me...with HE that can obliterate DDs because I get cruiser dispersion...

It is going to be glorious as the whole game will just fill with Soviet Battleships...

All hail Mother Russia!

I shall let you know, when I played VMF BBs and had the chance I swapped the radar for a fighter plane. It‘s imo far more useful outside of cyclones.

Obligatory remark that stuff is WiP, stuff can change, etc.

I agree in today's meta fighter is much more useful than radar wish i could have one on my missouri, plus it's hilarious to launch a squadron instead of a single plane off the rails of a BB

And at least the fighters can spot Cruisers and Destroyers 4km away behind an island...

I do not have high hopes for the effect the Soviet battleship line will have on the game.

Sounds like the Russian BB line will be exactly what I've been looking for.   Those of us who have been brawling from day 1 will be right at home.  Hell I even brawl in my Yamato.  LOL

So it will spot a Monarch but not a Stalingrad?

I play the GK with all white camo, and blast the Imperial March.

I have all T10 BB, by far GK is my favorite as it is the most fun and rewarding to play as close support brawler, we need more brawler instead of sniper type BB!
