I had to use a bunch of free XP to get it.  Donskoi  I think is just about the worst ship in the game.  Couldn't stand it.  Love the Moskva!!!!!  Very happy with it.

Donskoi is far from being the worst ship in the game.

 

But I guess that's fine if you love Moksva

Didn't skip Donskoi, just slapped her with a lot of XP flags.
And yeah, Moskva is a good ship.

Played Dmitri Donskoi in both coop and randoms. Unlocked Moskva without using any FXP, but I will wait for the Devblog announcement scheduled next week about how Moskva will move to the Armory before purchasing her.

Or I’ll just ignore it.

Started 09/2015.

Still just on Budyonny.

Only ever really liked Bogatyr and The Donut. Never anything else.

Donskoi really isn't bad, she's just a bit odd. It took me a handful of games to come to grips with her strengths. That said, I free XPed about half of the grind through her just because I could.

I enjoyed the Donskoi, though I will admit I rushed through it with flags and perma camos to get to the Moskva quickly.

I liked the Donskoi - took her in small bites on a nightly basis until the job was done, and that made it pleasant... but oh sweet Jesus, she turns like a geriatric cow.

The others weren't that bad either.

It was made easier by the fact that I had far more FXP than I needed to get the job done, in case they sprang it on us at short notice, so actually getting her was never in doubt.

My issue with the Donskoi was always how much DPM it lost compared to the preceding ships in the line.  Even with MBM3 the Donskoi had noticeably worse DPM than something like the stock Shchors.  The Donksoi's AP is better as compensation, but by Tier 9 it's only decent, being worse in pen than things like Buffalo and Brindisi.  As an HE spammer....it's just a massive downgrade from the preceding ships.  *Hell....when not running MBM3 the Donskoi has slightly worse HE DPM and fire starting than the Budyonny of all things.  

 

I wouldn't call the Donskoi a bad ship, at least certainly not pre-rework, but it was always a little underwhelming.  It's essentially just a heavy cruiser that needs IFHE.

I would have suggested holding off playing it until the change. That way, you don't have to retrain your Donskoi captain. (Or you can retrain him to one of the new ships if you get them)

Dmitri Donskoi was the first t9 I didn't sell to get the t10 and was the first t9  I permanently assigned a 19pts captain. I haven't played that ship much lately because I have been busy re-grinding the German cruiser line. But I have Dmitri as one of my best t9 and is the pinnacle of the Soviet light cruiser gameplay (Moskva is a totaly different beast). I only regret that, once I got to Moskva, the gameplay changed so drastically, that Moskva left me the impression of having a 'cursed luck' in randoms. It took me a lot of time to re-adapt.

Yeah, Donskoi really got hammered in 0.9.2. At tier IX, her 180mm HE has the same penetration as Chapayev and other tier VIII+ ships with 152mm guns but with a much lower rate of fire (12.5s base, IIRC). The change to IFHE means she can no longer pen 38mm of armor with the skill, which was another advantage she had over these higher DPM ships.
