Not a fan of RU cruisers so far

It might be an early call but after 3 games in my Svietlana and having been killed early every time by devastating strikes I cannot see myself playing these for much longer.

A few more games varying my tactics but the outlook is not bright.

The clumsy rudder shift time and the meager range (actually 100m less than the Bogatyr lol) have made it a bit of a struggle for me too.

 

That massive gap in range between the Svietlana and the cruisers it gets thrown in against isn't too fun. :D

And to think that people were complaining that RU cruisers would be made of Stalinium :trollface:

 

But yes. They're hilariously fragile and have awful rudder shift, coupled with battleship levels of size and detectability. On the upside, they carry much, much heavier gun armaments - Kirov can hit battleships for 5-digit AP pens, even at range.

What are you talking about? Furutaka carries a bigger caliber gun. Last I checked 203 mm is bigger than 180 mm :-P

 

And then they're stuck with 6" until Dmitri and Moskva.

Bah, Taco has five of them in awful turrets. Kirov's got 9.

It's official, too slow, too weak and a BB could turn better than this bloody thing. That's a few wasted hours of my life that I'll never get back.

Well, it's fine on tier 3 & 4. Still grinding the tier 4 RU Cruiser ship. The thing is..... RU Cruiser can be easily killed by battleships of any shell, yes HE can severely damage you.

I also had a weird experience in using the Bogatyr. The traverse of the guns are rather slow, though that isn't really important because of its sooo tooo many guns, haha. But as what you guys have said, the traverse is way too irritating. I have high hopes for the Svietlana based on what I have watched in WoWs videos in youtube but we'll see. Hopefully I would still enjoy grinding up the tiers, huhu. Do you guys think they will buff the RU cruisers if these problems get addressed or if many players complain about them?

buddie of mine got the moskow and it's... fragile, i really do wonder if they used blueprint papers in the building of this ship...

 

Fragile? But their armor is the thickest of all the all cruisers right? So it should able tank more shells right?:amazed:

It's a massive target that turns pretty slowly so Yamato players will probably drool when they see one. :trollface:

I'm loving the new Stalin boats, especially Kirov

The lower tier ships aren't the problem.. its the fact that their highest tier has radar and any dd within range get highlighted.. just experienced this myself.. you can not get away... no point in popping smoke. .they can see you and shoot you.. and if there are more than one Moskva.. say goodbye..
