Hey everyone, 

I've unlocked most tier 10 ships of the game, but in playing high tier matches, it becomes so clear that one particular Tier 10 ship is very rarely played - the Grozovoi. 

I've played just over twenty games in the Grozovoi, and it is the most awkward ship to play: 

- Its got great guns and high HP, and it can wreck enemy destroyers very quickly. However, the ship is ridiculously massive, and if firing in the open, it will eat battleship shells repeatedly. 

- It has got a comfortable stealth-fire range for its torpedoes at 10km, but the torpedoes are slow and do the least damage, and the torpedo reload speed is terrible

- It is very fast, has a decent rudder shift, and is difficult to hit by most ships at longer distances, but again it is massive and once an enemy is shooting well, it will take a lot of damage

- It has fantastic AA so that it can take capture points in the presence of enemy aircraft, although CVs are not present in most games, and the Grozovoi needs to give up speed boost to strengthen its AA/DFAA. Also, most high tier cv players have enough skill to know not to send any aircraft torward the Grozovoi untill absolutely necessary. 

- It is a 'support DD', but has a very short-duration smokescreen.

My point is that the Grozovoi does not appear to have a true strength, and its place among the ranks of Tier 10 destroyers is often decided by matchmaking adding aircraft carriers into the match. I think the Grozovoi needs some changes to increase its popularity among the Tier 10 destoyers and to make the destroyer more competitive. 

Please share your thoughts.

It's a challenging ship, for sure.

I ran mine without aft for a while, spent points elsewhere. (Torp reload)

Had my best game in it, 150k loss.

Needs more captain points than 19, still trying to find the sweet spot.
