This Battleship had a surcharge which does not pay at all, despite being a Tier IX, IT HAS NOTHING TO BENEFIT IT:

- Useless Secondarys.
- An Anti-Air that leaves much to be desired.
- The Fighter is terrible and never shoots down planes.
- Bad dispersion which makes it worse than the German BBs.

The only decent thing about this Purchase is the Captain of Azur Lane because the ship sucks wherever you want to see, extremely disappointed with what this collaboration is currently selling.

I totally agree. I want her to be a good battleship so badly. The Sov Soyuz has long reload, but accurate main guns at brawling range. The Sov Rossiya has long reload and that's it. Come on, Wargaming. The Soviet Union spent one fourth of the entire nation's GDP on these 2 battleships, and they were supposed to be the crowning jewel of Mother Russia.

I posted a thread asking WG to buff the secondaries. I think very minimally she needs dramatically improved secondaries and AA. Maybe even shorter main gun reload at 23~24 seconds:

AL Sov Rossiya is currently one of the weakest Tier 9 battleship in the game. The Tech Tree Sov Soyuz was balanced according to the average battleships at Tier 9. But for AL Sov Rossiya, the 0.1 sigma increase cannot compensate for losing the increased main gun accuracy at close range. This makes AL Sov Rossiya incapable at contesting and very weak at any range.

I would like to ask the devs to try increasing the secondary base range to 7.7km or so, and maybe even increase secondary reload/accuracy according to the spreadsheet's feedback. This can greatly help AL Sov Rossiya captains that find their ship nearly always outgunned when contesting a cap, and surely increase sales.

It is understood that Wargaming is not interested in anything about the ships it is creating and only sells without testing the effectiveness of this Battleship.
Rossiya is simply a Heavy Cruiserwithout hydro and extremely slow

It's never too late to buff something. WG buffed German BBs and also the Tirpitz, receiving very positive response from the player base.

If it's up to me, the Sov Rossiya would have Smolensk-like secondaries, rapid-firing and very powerful (like Kremlin's, and this is actually historical because, at the time, Russian navy preferred strong dual-purpose secondaries to defend the ship in scenarios where fighter escorts are insufficient), as well as other much needed buffs:

  1. Secondaries' based range increased to 7.7km (like Pommern's)
  2. 152mm secondaries' reload reduced to 7.5 sec (like Pommern's)
  3. 100mm secondaries' reload reduced to 3.35 sec (like Pommern's)
  4. Both 152mm and 100m secondaries' dispersion formula reduced from "57×R + 31" to "33×R + 28" (like Mamie's)
  5. Both 152mm and 100m secondary turrets' health doubled (like what WG realized with Sov Soyuz's main turrets during beta testing)
  6. Main gun reload reduced from 33 sec to 30 sec
  7. Main gun autobounce angle reduced from 45° (30° guaranteed) to 30° (22.5° guaranteed) like Alaska's
  8. Repair Party CD reduced from 80 sec to 40 sec
  9. Torpedo damage reduction increased to 46% (like Kremlin's)

Changes like these would make the Sov Rossiya not only more competitive, but also more fun to play (and still far from being overpowered). A good battleship needs the capability to contest a cap. If a battleship is not capable of contesting, she is not capable, period.

While I agree the AL Rossiya needs a little love, if they buff it, they'll buff its sigma.
