I know how things change so fast here. Not much into island camping.  I'm more interested in her for DD hunting cause I HATE running into one when I am in my DD.   I know she's fragile, I've blapped a few myself.  Is she still deadly in the right hands?

Thnx for any input as always.

Sometimes she's even deadly in my hands; in the right hands she's even more so. Despite the damage she can and does do I think of her more as a psychological weapon and I like to use it as such. I've seen whole red team flanks turn and run at the sheer volume of shells I could sling out. It's an amusing thing to see.:cap_rambo:

I got her, she got boring for me pretty fast. Still, if you want to devastate DDs up to 12km with ease she is for you. 

Only thing is you need a 19 point Commander to get out of her all of her potential.

Yes, that ship is still busted. Get those next few containers and grab her. Little White Mouse put it pretty well, if enough people buy her to flood games with it, it may cause enough problems for WG to realize how broken it is. Though personally I think they know full well she’s busted, and just don’t care.

I am with Crazy Horse (who should know), it is more psychological weapon.

If you want to be the focus of the enemy, hated by everyone, and like to farm then this is the ship for you.

She is so good, she earns money in Coop without flags. I haven't brought it into randoms yet because I have been too busy grinding a few T9s.

The coal ship coupon refreshes in December, I think, so you might want to wait for that to save a bunch of coal for the next ship.

I am an average player and what is said above is really true !  She may get ZAPPED somewhere down the line but:  NOT TODAY - buy her and have some fun, eh?!

No! Save the coal to give to Bob Krachet 1 piece at a time.

I picked up the Thunderer which has been mildy disappointing, was hoping it would be like a tier 10 Vanguard. Instead it's just a gimped Conq. So I'd go with Smolboi for sure, much bigger impact on the game.

Lots of great info....  Gonna get her in the morning after that first crate. 

Here's a LOL

Thought I would just go get a few crates and get some signals to boot because they have a possibility of 3500 coal right?  You guessed it.  No coal !  Just needed 50 .  See you in the morning with that new Smol ; )

If you are uncertain of getting Smolensk, my advice is maybe wait a little while as my predictions are that Wargaming is about to add some new ships to help gain extra interest in the game that have the potential to be good. But by all means keep an eye out just in case Wargaming decides to post a notice about pulling Smolensk out of shop, which they typically will give a month or 2 advance warning of such actions.

Smolensk can still be formidable, but its weak armor has begun to be exploited and the ship does seem to have poor torpedo protection as I have sunk Smolensk ships on accidents with long range torpedoes. Also if you don’t have at least 1 escort such as a DD then your smoke can end up blinding you and suddenly you end up with a BB, heavy Cruiser, or even a bold DD attacking you close ranged where they can accurately fire into your smoke or else target you when you exit the smoke. After all Smolensk is much like an HE spamming Minotaur or a Worchester with smoke, and now that players are figuring that out it does make them more willing to charge through the HE spam with the promise of nice citadel hits. 

So bottom line is while Smolensk is still be strong, but I would not as easily call her OP now that the average players in Randoms are finally learning to sink Smolensk.

Yup. It's hard to see how they haven't noticed the complaints and in-game behavior. 

Like the others said, get it, OP. She's great for those hit/ribbon farming missions. She makes money in coop too, with Premium.

Yes, but I recommend having at least an 18pt captain to maximize the ship's sodium production.

enjoy this beauty, but remember please, HP is 32,400 (you cannot get lower with T10 CL), panoramic exposed citadel, and no radar. So get a 19 points Captain if you can. It's fun as hell, a true dragon. Enjoy all the salt as well...
