Wasn't Ohio about the same?

I think it is 62,500 for Ohio

So much for Slava as an alternate tier X tech-tree ship... 

 

Yeah. I still have no interest in NTC/Research Bureau. It is interesting, Slava, but this is what I found from https://www.wows-gamer-blog.com/2019/05/world-of-warships-st-slava-soviet-tier-x.html

Her combination of accurate main guns, weaker survivability compared to other battleships, three charges of the Repair Party consumable, means that it is sensible to primarily focus on long-range engagements.

Just one (1)???

Flamuu has been streaming the boat and it appears to have a normal DCP.

Slava - Because encouraging BB players to sit FURTHER back is a good thing!  - WG

Slava - Because low drag shells from 20km+ landing 9/9 shells is a good thing!  - WG

My bad, I forgot to change the amount of RPC in the description to three, Fixed, thanks for spotting that. :)

Slava isn't the great threat people perceive it to be.  I think a more annoying situation to be fair is still the dominance CV's have.  I don't want this to be a CV bashing thread, but Cv's factually stil have a huge amount of influence followed by DD's.  Slava's need to sit at range, and long reload make her less of a threat than a skillfully played DD.  To be fair people mostly less skilled cruiser players will complain when they get devstruck, but to be fair I suspect they had the similar chances of dying with any other TIer X BB at that range.

 

The other issue is the armor as stated makes this a no go for brawling early to mid.  I mean this ship will get punished severly for mispositioning.

This actually makes me kinda happy. I wasn't very interested in Slava, and putting Slava in the research bureau means that there will be far less players using it than if it were a tech tree ship, coal ship, or free XP ship.

IMHO Slava and Champagne are meant to be CV killers. In meantime they can bash others...

 

For myself DDs are the most feared class and are able to finish a battle. I cant play safe if there are DDs when i drive my BBs. Everyone asks a CV player to spot and kill DDs. Everyone shoot at them. It is not a CV problem, it is because DDs are strong hitters. Capable of do enormous trouble.

I'm surprised not many people are complaining about Slava going to RB, because if you look past the guns, she is really more a Super-Massive Stalingrad that can't tank nearly as much as Stalingrad, and Stalin is only OP if it gets broadsides or gets to see super light cruisers with 16mm plating. Granted, Slava is an absolutely terrible game design, as a BB that can't tank and with accurate guns at long range is not what the game really needs

Slava etc would seem to cater to the reverse-gear, back-of-map playstyle that plagues some game modes. 

Personally, I'm less bothered about Slava going into the Regrind Bureau -- while no ship should ever be locked away behind that kind of wall, at least that makes it less likely that a ship I'm actually interested in will end up there later.

^ Same.

With the Pommern supposedly going for coal, Slava for research points,  I can start looking forward to whatever is going for FXP.   FDR?

I'd say FDR will come in for Steel, I hope so at least. The Legendary Paolo Emilio might come for FXP :Smile_trollface:

The irony is that it's technically free. Yes, you need a hell of a lot of work to get there and plenty of time or patience, but one can do it without paying money. "Locked away" is something of a misnomer here when the vast majority of premium ships are behind an absolute paywall. A season is 3 months, right? That's 90 days, give or take. A million XP will take you from Tier 1 to anywhere, and over three months that's 11,112 XP a day (rounding up to the nearest XP). That's not even the second container per night.

They offered Shikishima and three T10 permacamos for steel a little earlier this year; stocks of that item might be a touch depleted. I was favouring coal to compete with Pommern.

I mean shika is a very odd bote, and to be fair I know very few people who want to play her long  term.  I know no one who says its better than yamato just different.  No compelling reason to play some boats.  I suspect Slava really isn't going to get people to want to play her more than Kremlin.  Its a specialist ship, and it really isn't something I can see me thinking that's my goto BB.

That's why clan brawl with camos and flags yielded 30k+ in FreeXP is so much much.  To be fair clan battles is like that too just in an eloganted format.

Why is Dasha wearing a dirndle to talk about summer rewards?  She should have saved that outfit for Oktoberfest.

I feel the same way about some of my resource premiums, including one or two that I slaved a lot for and spent most of what I had on. Some of them I don't even play once a week... but then something comes along for which they are PERFECT, and I'm glad I spent the resources.
