Hi dear reader:

I'm volutionseba, a cat lover and a normal player of the NA server :D.  I got a question for u guys, and THERE'S NOT RIGHT OR WRONG ANSWERS, just arguments and different points of views:

It's gonna be a week since the last big update of european destroyers and I gotta admit I really like gunship destroyers, they fit almost every roll and fit my playstile too.:cap_rambo:

This it's where things get hard (or not) ... Småland ! :cap_horn:cause we're talking about 2 MILLION FREE EXP! that's the first problem. I'm about 200k of buying that ship, but I haven't played against the ship already. I dunno the opinions of his reload rate, modules, playstile, AA, etc. 

I've seen some videos on the internet but the problem is there's only 1 point of view of the video maker, and in the website there's very poor information about the ship.

My question is ... what do u think about the ship in general? does smaland worth the 2m?

Thanks for the time of reading me and those who'll write below, hope you guys have a good day and a wonderful sailing, GL out there! o7

General consensus from what I have seen is that she is a nice ship, but not worth 2mil FXP.

Bet you anymoney they'll make this thing a Submarine's worst nightmare, Nuestrashimy too. They both reek of "something missing's but we've preplanned a future strength."

Your choice is Smaland for 2M FXP  or two tier 9 premiums for FXP. I'd rather have two T9s.

It is not worth 2 mill exp.

Good Rate of fire

Good torps

Painfully slow turret rotation.

Not very fast.

 


She also has a 7km blind spot at the front of her nose (You cannon shoot your front guns at a ship that is 7km or closer)

I don't have the ship, but a quick internet search yielded 25 deg/second turret rotation which is identical to daring, gearing, and friesland. Now, daring and friesland have 360 turrets which is a real nice thing, but I wouldn't call those turrets slow.  Although, it is possible that the information on the internet is incorrect.

 

Not sure it's worth 2mil, though. Still will probably buy it. Probably.

I've had fun with it, even tried it in Ranked. I agree, 2 mill free xp is a huge price tag. Up to you though, the tech tree line is better in some ways, though the +30% speed boost and radar have their uses that the rest don't have. I've not spent much time in destroyers without smoke, but this line may help me break that habit.

Flamu has a good video about her that's  2 or 3 days old.

Our clan leader got it.

His first 5 games impressions.....

Weak guns. 

Slow floaty shells, even under 7km.

My impression of the Swede dds..... they aren’t gun boats. Guns are last ditch or used to finish off crippled dds. They are torp boats. Fast torps but weak. Guns are weak. Slow. No smoke. High skill floor

I want to pull the trigger but it can’t. I’d do it for 1.25 mil but I’m afraid of inflation
