Smolensk isn't being nerf'd because she is a special ship... she isn't even confirmed to be being changed. Shes just being looked at.
We're heard about the player concern about not having some longer term grinds to work on of late.
You may have missed that over the weekend during the KoTS finals we announced a new longer term grind in the new Shipyard and Ship construction system
While its not a campaign we hope it will create a long term goal for players to work towards similar to how the campaign system works.

Please keep this topic on topic in regards to discussing RU and IT ships.
If this continues on the path of personal attacks I will close it.
They're not gone :) - They're just taking a quick break this week
Keep an eye out for next Monday when the next one will go live!
Just a reminder to please keep things civil amongst one another, there is no need to take shots at one another.
We all make mistakes, myself included. I promise even if things ran by me before hand they'd still have the odd mistake in them.
The main thing is ensuring mistakes are minimized and corrected, thanks to you all, this one has been too!
It looks like just a string of bad luck.
Matchmaking does not take player skill into consideration when determining team line ups.
The cost of premium time is reflected of the fact that there will to a certain point always be wasted hours.
If Premium time was on a countdown system, it would be considerably more expensive. By keeping the system as it is, it allows prices to be kept lower and also removes the technical strain of tracking how much time everyone has down to the second.
Just as a heads up, since the ships are in early access with a relatively small portion of the player base accessing them, the Data set is too small to accurately assess their current statistics in relations to other ships.
We are definitely aware the initial community sentiment is more negative than positive over their feel to play, we are going to keep a close eye on them into their full release and will consider changes if need be when more data is available concerning their play.
This is correct :)
One thing to remember is that Competitive Metas are very different to Random metas. Having a well communicating team with high skill levels can also minimize the access to ship weaknesses which would otherwise see them punished in regular games.
In saying that, we are aware of the community sentiment and feelings regarding "Russian Bias", and thus are beginning investigations into key ships of note. It should be noted that the Kremlin did recently receive nerfs in 0.8.9.0, we will assess and make further tweaks as necessary, we rather hit it with a small hammer than a sledge hammer to begin with, understanding it may need to be hit again. The Smolensk, we definitely hear that you do not enjoy playing against it, and it is currently being looked at as well, however please recall it is designed with weaknesses which when played against can be smacked.
It is definitely not with intention to have one line or nation preforming over an...Read more
While the dates were not confirmed until the Patch notes were released last Tuesday, the fact season 7 Clan Battles was coming was not a hidden fact and was noted in many places prior to the announcement on Monday.
While I know it can be hard, please try not to let others bad attitudes spoil the game for you.
Reporting them is the correct approach so we can moderate accordingly. You also have the option to locally disable chat from individuals or disable the chat completely if you choose.
To disable chat from an individual, hold CTRL, mouse over their name in the chatbox, right click, disable chat messages.
To disable chat entire, hit ESC, go into settings, go into controls, and deselect Battle Chat. This will prevent written messages but allow quick commands to go through.
We have clarified this article to better indicate that the 25% off is with use of the coupon.
We do not have intention to discount the Steel ships base price at this time.
I'm verifying this with Content at the moment to confirm the intention of this passage and to have the wording improved *if* required.
I understand the merit of doing that, but there are several reasons why we do not have this functionality present currently.
This may change in the future.
