Saw my first Slava in my last match.  He was never closer than 10km to anyone and ended up first on the opposing team, and of course, won handily.   That thing is balanced!

Seems like supertesters got their new ships this week, saw 2 slavas, a ludendorf and a richtofen (whom of which targeted me for pointing out he was a super tester)

Just because he was top and they won doesn't mean it was because of one ship.  It was probably more your team than anything.  Slava is in testing and usually they give them to very good players so I am not surprised it was at the top.

Knowing what the Slava's like based on past videos I've seen, it was absolutely because of "one ship". That ship is so overpowered that a brain-dead chimpanzee would be guaranteed to get 350k damage and a Kraken in literally every single match they used the Slava in.

It doesn’t matter how much they nerf the armor, the guns never changed.

Past videos doesn't show what it does now.  Brain-dead chimpanzee guaranteed 350k damage and a kraken every battle?  You have quite an imagination.  I had a Slava on my team from a purple clan that didnt end up with a kracken so what are you trying to say about that player?   Like I said one battle with a ship on top spot doesn't make it over powered.  I have been top spot in a tech tree ship that was bottom tier but it doesn't mean it is over powered.  I just had a good game.

the million dollar questions is will Slava be a tech tree ship (tier 10 BB line split) or will it be a resource ship?

I've went up against 3 or 4 slavas in separate matches and only once did the slava player top the charts. I even brawled a slava in my Monty (I won lmbo). I don't see the new slava as broken or maybe the testers were going easy, idk.

Based on its WIP stats, this is not the same Slava when it came out months ago. It received several nerfs which made it more balanced. And if you look at those WIP stats, there is no way this plays like a Kremlin since it has pretty weak armor. This is a sniping BB especially early-mid game. And yes, just like most ships, it does punish potatoes hard with its 406s (which doesn't mean it's OP) but don't do anything stupid in front of it and you'll be okay.

From the dev blog:

Soviet battleship Slava, Tier X:

  • Fore- and aft-end plating reduced from 32 to 25 mm;
  • Fore-end armor belt's plating reduced from 150 to 100 mm;
  • Armor belt's plating at the edges of the sides reduced from 430 to 370 mm;
  • Armor belt's plating in the center of the sides reduced from 410 to 350 mm;
  • Amount of damage dealt to all parts of the ship except for the citadel, which is restored by the "Repair party" consumable increased from 40% to 50%

I'm getting tired of Slava complainers and threads just like the CV mains are tired of anti CV players and threads.

Then lobby WG to drastically reduce the CV presence. Course you are going to get a continuous stream of complaints about ships that ruin the game for  so many of its players.
