I have been trying to grind past the Chappy for 3 years now.  I'm still only about halfway there.

It's pure misery.

:cap_yes:

Here's a humble suggestion for reducing the torture level.

Buff her so that she can complete at least one full 90 degree turn per 20 minute game.

The equally wretched Molotov should receive the same.

Yeah, chappy is pretty bad when it loses regularly in a 1v1 to an Asashio.

I am seriously contemplating burning 100K Free XP to end the torture. 

Until you realize that grinding Donskoi will be even more of a chore if you don't like Chapayev.

Chappy is downright nimble compared to its T9 brother.

Didn't know that.

I may just stick with Russian BBs as they are fun. I love the Vlad and Lenin.

So being able to stealth radar isn't good enough for you?

Stay at range and kite....

Focus DDs, even if you die early. If you kill a DD you'll get a healthy chunk of exp, making the grind a breeze.

I might just try that as I need my FXP for other things.

There's nothing wrong with Chapayev, she doesn't need any buffs.

I'm assuming you're talking about a gun-build Asashio played by a solo super-unicum player?  Otherwise I'm more than happy to take on an Asashio in my Chapayev.

Yeah, I've done it vs other unicums and Asashio won every time.

Mine maneuvers just fine.  If you have a problem with Chapayev, then you shouldn't play any of the Soviet cruisers, especially the high tier ones.

People underestimate IJN HE on a regular basis.  I've run into gun-build Shimas on a few occasions and they were pretty nasty.

Stay away from the RU CAs, those things take forever and a half to turn.

Clearly, there are other issues at hand if it's taking three years to grind just halfway through one boat.

Moreover, the Chap is an gymnast compared to the Don that follows.  If you hate the Chap now, you will absolutely despise the Don later.

RU cruisers are meant to be far enough away from what's shooting at it to have time to dodge any incoming.  Kiting is their element.  Should be obvious why the guns are so long-ranged and accurate.

Let's not exaggerate, you can do 2 360's in a 20 minute match.

There is no reason to buff the Chapayev. Yes, it sluggish on its best day & the 4km torpedoes are very short ranged.

But overall the ship is balanced. If you can't adapt I do suggest spending the FXP to leap to the Dmitri Donskoi.

Some ships are just more difficult to get the hang of.

Personally I enjoy the Chapayev but there are other ships I used FXP to pass over because I could not get them to work for me.

Chapayev is a very good ship, you should never lose a gun battle with a DD in tier with it.  You have to decide if you want to me a burner, of if you want to straight up damage. I run IFHE on it. If you try to play it against what its designed to do then of course you get wrecked.  Its  a thin skinned cruser meant to be played at mid-long range play it that way

This is correct. You should have taken a hint with T7. The trick is to not look like an interesting target. This means you sacrifice a lot of tactical ability of the ship though. It is awesome at switching positions on the map and rooting out dd's with radar in defensive roles.
