Won't even try.  Can't change a mind that is stuck on "It hurt me! It's OP and must be removed!"  Don't feel too bad, though.  You have plenty of company.

Got Smolensk ....played Smolensk. Anddd. Can't say it's game breaking it's worse than an Emerald lol. Or it could be it's twin, all you have enough to do is hit it .....it's made of gasoline soaked cardboard and matches holding her together. Lol!!!

Smolensk has DD guns with barely any penetration and other cruisers have better damage output against armoured targets as well as fire chance even thought its guns benefit from AFT/BFT. Just like DDs, needs to get lucky with fires that stick on the target in order to average even a respectable amount of damage. No radar. Less smoke screen charges, range, damage than Minotaur while also being the most fragile ship in the game. Heavily reliant on captain skills so it has to give up many useful skills like RPF and even concealment expert if you want to provide the best gun performance and have last stand. Worse sigma and overall accuracy than most other T10 cruisers. Not a true premium ship so it does not obtain more credits. Provides the enemy team with many devastating strike medals. The Khabarovsk already exists, why play a fatter one with a citadel?

Really the Atlanta is better, as it will not be seen behind islands spamming you with HE, as the Smol needs smoke and has

armour only as strong as the Atlanta.  yes it does have more distance than Atl but Smol is mostly in X games!

I'm doing okay in it without last stand. I think I've only lost my rudder or engine twice in ~60 battles, and it was barely even a minor inconvenience. I've only been dev struck twice, I think. Maybe 3 times.

Eh it's fun, but by no means is it an automatic win ship.

It's numbers are likely to get worse over time.

I wish it was as "game breaking" for me.  It can be citadeled by coughing on it and 2 torps pretty much take out 75% of its health instantly .

How many "game breakers" have there been?  Remember these oldies, but goodies... Haragumo, Kitakaze, All CVs, Belfast, Bayard, Colbert, etc...now it's the Friesland and Smolensk.

  Feel free to add to many that I have not listed....

If most other non-Russian premium ship started off with the kind of numbers the Smolensk enjoys it would have been nerf-sledgehammered by now.

Any ship that is a paper design or simply made up are game breakers, but what they are actually breaking who knows

They always seem to die first... 

Then they are just bad players, and don't matter. Smolensk is broken OP, just like all these new super premium money grab ships they have released the past couple months.

Nerf? Nah, won't happen. Premiums don't get nerfed because nerfed ships don't make money.
