2,692 Shells fired.  I say in 18 minutes.  Ship is going to need replacement of the the guns plus replacement/overhaul of the ammo feed system. I have no idea what shape the FC/Search radars are in. Ditto for the engines and the hull. I'll need a new gunnery crew set also. Pretty sure they're all deaf.

Throw the dakka dakka, reload booster, and Russian railguns ships in the trash. God I miss the old days when the ships in tier were fairly well balanced (granted there were only 2 national lines at the time). These newer ships are getting more and more insane and this game is getting more and more trashy because of it.

Better off simply rolling with it all, we get subs soon, so there will be more people leaving, and when it starts hurting their bank balance, then they might take notice, until then it will keep going like it is.

I think the bigger thing to actually take from them numbers is you only actually hit 515 shells from the 2600 shells fired making it barely just over 20% hit ratio and got 100k damage almost

also the 16 fires from 515 hits is an average of 1 fire every 32 shells

*cough* cant see no Russian bias here lol

I rarely play the Smolensk. Maybe once a day for daily’s. Other than that i keep her in port because she is that OP. I try to not make other players experience horrible.

I'm pretty sure I would had gotten a better hit ratio if there were less people focused firing on me. Take a look at the potential damage number.

Same, except I took Smolensk out for a small stretch to see if I could make it work consistently.  I was punished for small mistakes and much more so because everyone is looking to delete the ship ASAP.  After 20 battles I had some really good ones and some really bad ones.  I know I can do better in the ship but I'm not sure I want to.

And Colbert as well.  Despite lots of shatters, it's annoying as heck.  Its constant rainbow of salt is a bread trail for enemy shells.
