So far, how well is everyone liking the new Soviet/Russian cruisers?

Do you like or not?

Some of them are fun, some of them are chores.

Because after 7 hours of their release, we would totally be on Moskva by now.

Well, they probably used free XP.  Not everyone has 1 million free XP lying around.

Took my New Orleans out around 9:00 this morning and ended up with a Shchores and a chapayev on my team.

 

Im on the fence about grinding the line. The ships look like they will be fun. However, the long rudder shift and large turn circles are a bit of a turn off.

Is NOW the time to strike in my T1 thru T6 non-Russian cruisers?  Now before players in the new Russian line learn how to play them and before they get em all upgraded? Is the iron hot?  Strike? I need all the advantages I can get.

Bogatyr is now my 2nd favorite t3 cruiser after Tenryu. She plays like an even more fun St Louis.

I Free-XPed to the Budyonny and bought it, the Kirov, and the Bogatyr. I was on lunch so could only play one round...played the Budyonny. Was expecting it to play like a German cruiser, but as weird as it sounds I did well sniping DDs at ~12km with HE.

 

I like the torp spread...but the range is so bad it's pretty much your last move before death...take them with you, lol.

 

Only one battle though...so lots more time needed to settle into it. I Free-XPed full outfit on all 3 and had 7pt captains for each...will enjoy playing them out and eventually working to the higher tiers.

Met a guy earlier using the 130's on the Bogatyr with AFT, BFT, and EM. He said they more than made up for the stat difference between the 130s and the stock 152s.

I guarantee you there are. I know many people with millions of free xp just sitting there.

You didn't have a neutral opinion, so I voted yes on all of them. They're an interesting group of ships, some of which I like more than others, but none that I disliked.

I see she is 2 knots faster than St Louis.  That is not a lot but better...decent...Da.  I love the St Louis but man that slow speed is a drag.  The St Louis is a tank however. Does Bogatyr compare to St Louis in this regard?

I have been ripping them apart in my St. Louis. AP shreds them in no time, but they are faster and have better range.

Already joined a few T9+ battles with Moskavas on both teams.  They make great citadel pinatas for battleships, but are also strong enough to hold against other cruisers with the usual angling.  Have to be played like battlecruisers though.

 

I'm thinking of starting at T5 with Kirov, get a feel for the line there (assuming T5-7 is different from MK aside from smoke), then work up from there.  Yeah, I know Kirov's armor got worse, and it's engines are more vulnerable, so I've got to play her defensively.

My only complaint are their guns huge arcs. Constantly undershooting target. Make small correction - which causes overshooting it.

I honestly haven't lost my engine once,  I don't last long enough,  this ship has absolutely NO armor, you wont even bounce T3 shells shot at you.    It has two directions of travel,  Forward and Down to the bottom.

Tiers II - IV I hated.  Tinder boxes.

Kirov - nice ship as long as you don't take any hits.  Lost over 1/2 HP with 2 volleys from an Omaha.  Engine and steering constantly get knocked out.  Rate of fire horrendous for this Tier.  Oh, and she catches fire if a shell gets near her.

 

Budyonny - just got up to him.  Seems ok, but still a tinder box.   Put 90 hits into a New Mexico - set 5 fires.  HP damage was 23k - Fire Damage was 37k.   Weak guns.
