Apparently this cruiser was overpowered but consensus says its not that crazy? I don't know if anyone else would be down for the return of this ship. Need to complete my 305/310 calibre cruisers. Think its likely to happen?

Her vertical dispersion is so terrible I think a lot of people would be frustrated by that ship. It's actually worse than Roma's.

Kronk has extremely powerful guns but she has tremendously wonky dispersion which is an extreme frustration. She will cit most broadside battleships over 15k, if you can get her guns to behave  which they rarely do. Her pen is so high she will overpen almost every cruiser inside of 15km's, but she has almost no overmatch ability so she can struggle to do meaningful damage to angled targets. 

Her HE rounds just suck. You're better off trying to hit superstructures for overpen damage than switch to HE, as it'll do almost the same damage.

Wasn’t Kronshtadt the first CB, with Stalingrad being released later that same year? I wouldn’t be surprised if Kronshdaht was one of those ships that was indeed pulled because of her popularity (at the time).

Even if she was over performing when she was pulled, nowadays she has a lot of competition and I can’t remember the last time I saw one in battle. Even if she is still OP, WG could always decide to balance her using the precedent set with Flint and rerelease her at will. They now have Georgia and AK to serve as tier IX Santa crate bait, after all.

IIRC the reasoning on pulling Musashi and Kronshtadt was they were to popular in battle. While you would see a lot of the Musashi it was far from the case with the Kron. 

Let's be honest though, they were both pulled as WG wanted to raise the cost of free xp ships, bumping a tier 9 from 750k to 1m.

This is my view on it. The old girl has been powercrept something fierce. Even the newer 220mm gunned cruisers out preform her. She lacks overmatch and has VERY wonky dispersion.

Comparing her to the Alaska is...interesting to say the least not to mention with the removal of all the surviability skills removed from Cruiser captains she's not actually cream of the crop anymore. The reason she was so popular was she basically a budget Stalingrad.

Really.

I missed it by like 40k XP and because back then I wouldn't pay close attention to patch notes.

Winner winner chicken dinner. 

This reason and this alone is why she was pulled.

In today's meta she would be middle of the pack on her best day in the super cruiser world

^This. Kron was great for potential damage missions too. But since the skills rebork it's not so true. Removal of the survival skills hurt it pretty bad.

Meh. I'd rather see a Sevastopol at this point. Kron's sister and have it with the German 38cm guns and turrets. Basically a Siegfried-ski.

Have you ever shot at a ship 10 km away and had shells land short, far, wide left, and wide right all at the same time?  Behold, the Kron.  It's almost as bad as the Italian BBs.  But so tanky (when not on fire).  I think it's skippable, and given the choice I'll always prefer alaska at t9.
