Flint used to be a fun ship, now is quite a disappointment.

Now with 11.1 kms range it's a bad destroyer. 

Not worth the steel spent on it.

Uninstall is getting so close

She is still a very efficient bot killer and primary-gun-hit ribbon farmer, and still the closest you will get to having Smolensk if you don't actually have Smolensk.

The only way to give WG the data they need to buff her is to play her.

Sadly, the best way to get WG to take a look at fixing something is to stop playing it, since the balance by popularity contest. 

They'll say they don't, but then regularly give "reasons" for ships or other items being moved or remove or changed related to popularity.

I noticed in the notes that they baked the 13.3 range into the Atlanta, but didn't mention the Flint.

Hopefully that is an error that will be fixed in a patch...

EDIT:  I submitted a Bug Report:

Smolensk is still fun in Co-Op, Flint isn't.

Just not in the mood to be a guinea pig again.

Did my part since closed beta, played a lot of crap in these 5+ years. Not anymore.

If they fix it, great, if not...

See you

It hasn't been too long since the Skill Rebork went Live.  I don't expect immediate changes, if at all, for Flint.  But to take a pulse with what's going on, here are the Damage Averages for Atlanta and Flint across all the servers this past week of 1-30-2021.

http://maplesyrup.sweet.coocan.jp/wows/shipstatswk/index.html

Asia Server

ATL 30,864

Flint 31,227

 

NA Server

ATL 30,895

Flint 33,989

 

EU Server

ATL 32,664

Flint 38,333

 

RU Server

ATL 33,499

Flint 35,063

 

NA & EU Servers play ATL & Flint the most, more even than the larger RU Server.

Again, this was a quick pulse check.  These numbers are going to jump around a while week-to-week.  People are trying different things out, wondering what's effective.  On top of that, I'm expecting changes to the Skill Rebork.  Things are going to be in flux for a while.
