Reduction of armor a MASSIVE nerf to Smolensk

Played the Smolensk since the patch.  Armor reduced.  Everything pens it from almost any angle.  Removes any chance for aggressive play to be rewarded.  Now, it's camp, smoke, fire and repeat.  Stupid.  Another WOW nerf to make the game easier for the BB cash cows.

Good.

Do you even know how many times I have lobbed salvos of both AP and HE at them with almost NOTHING happening? It gets real old.

Have you played any high tier DD recently in Randoms/Ranked when it's packed with Smolensks? If yes you will find the quoted sentence to a pretty common case with Smolensk being the culprit.

The sheer misery this ship brought to quite a few classes (keep in mind not OPness, but misery) won't have me shed any tears on any nerf. And I'm saying this as an owner.

That's all it ever did anyway and almost everybody hates the Smolensk so don't blame it on just BB players .

I just tested the Smolensk: trashed beyond repair, he turned into a giant DD...

Everything penned it from almost any angle before the armor change. Welcome to playing a DD with a citadel.

So it turned into a cruiser that has smoke, horrible armor, with high DPM that is a priority target when ever spotted?

It reminds me of another tier 10 ship....

After getting the Thunderer, I still have enough Coal (460 000) to buy Jean-Bart and Smolensk but after reading this, I might keep my Coal until after upgrade 9.3 and see what comes in,

Read something about a Tier X French DD (Marceau?) Anyone?

Agreed.

I don't have a problem with it getting a nerf....  just this was the wrong nerf.

This is correct.  A nerf was fine.  However, WOW's idiocy with this nerf means yet another ship that just camps, smokes, and spams HE.  Stupid.
