Do we know if there was any changes to them?

Any nerfs or buffs?

 

Is there still an NDA or can the supertester tell us what changed?

Remember when German cruisers were first introduced and the first few day's matches going up the tech tree were just flooded with Dresdens and Hermelins?

 

Get ready for a repeat, Soviet-style.

Yea all Queues are going to be pure Russian cruisers lol

 

Im just trying to figure out how thin their armor really is...  They say they are weak in terms of armor... How weak?  I was expecting Russian ships to be exactly opposite.

ST would know what they tested. What the final product is at release, they may not know, as WG can do what they must.

 

You will see tomorrow.

It's always that way. We had Tirpitz only games, and RU DDs galore in all battles for a few days, and so on.

 

I plan to start slow and grind every tier this time (slowly), using Free XP only for equipment upgrades when I must, as some ships are bad when stock. I will play a few in the RU Cruiser, then a few more in the same tier with something else (all-classes), to learn to counter it. As I have a ship or more for every tier in port (from T1 to T9), I will be guaranteed to encounter them all as opponents, and allies, for a while. It'll be fun.

 

Note: Why do I mention T1 when they start at T2? Because you encounter T2 in T1. I only keep one T1 ship that I like, Orlan. I can cit anything at the tier with AP in Orlan, but the ones that give me the most trouble are Dresden and Emden. I want to see what Orlan can do to a Novik, and vice versa. It will definitely be long, fun, and a learning experience, for every tier.

I'm sure we will have RU Cruisers here, there and everywhere after the patch goes live (that is if the Server stays up).

RU Cruisers Sardine Schooling.

My Orlan Captain can finally transfer ship and the new guy start training for the eventual RU BB or CV

This. We know what we tested and since there was no NDA for the last part of testing we made many threads and rviews. However, things can change before they drop.

Thought I'd grab an Orlan today and be ready for the Novik when it comes out.

 

Every match was 20 Orlans, unless it was a Tier 2 match, in which case it was only 18 Orlans lol.

they start at t1

 

orlan is considered a cruiser (albeit it's a some ww2 patrol boat, a paper one on top of that, it puzzles me how they chose paper shi[ps for t1 cruiser and t2 ru dd when they had a plenty of real ones to choose from... im especially mad about storojevoy, really, tsarist russia had a plenty of dd classes... ><)

Orlan is a gunboat design.  So what if it was never built?  Its armament satisfies T1 requirements just fine.  You need to stop complaining about paper ships being chosen: the top tiers as a whole would be very different if not outright incomplete if there weren't any.

Might have to bust the New York and the Arkansas Beta out and have a little fun.

 

Could also be a good time to level the Langely.

that's ok to have paper ships when it's the only ship which fits the line, but it's not the situation with storozhevoy and orlan, they chose those to be paper for no real reason, and since we missed a chance to have an actual tsarist russian dd thanks to that decision it makes me sad

 

also another example of an arbitrary chosen paper ship it's nicholas... she is a cute ship but it's paper while they clearly could find an american dd to fit tier 5

 

phoenix is paper too but that paper is at least somehow justified...

Sorry, but you have no idea what you're talking about.  The Farraguts were the first USN DDs built after the Clemsons ceased production.  If she's placed at T6, doesn't it stand that any following classes are unfit for T5?

Nicholas was a purely fictional design, said by Wargaming themselves.  It takes elements from Clemson and Farragut and puts it into a balanced ship that fits Tier 5.  Same torpedo armament as Clemson but has the guns of Farragut.

 

What is this guy even saying...
