USS Seattle Gun Range wtf

Just noticed when you unlock the USS Seattle B Hull the range is reduced by 0.9km from 14.3km to 13.4km (1km from 15.7km to 14.7km with the range upgrade.)

 

What is this about? Can somebody explain this? Possible bug? (unlikely).

 

I can't think of any other ship where this occurs.

 

The guns are exactly the same - 152mm/47 D.P Mk17. Nor does the actual Artillery stat go down, it remains at 42/100.

I thought I was being a bit over the top by saying its a bug, but cool. Can somebody else confirm this? Check your game client.

says 14.3 stock and 15.7 in my tech tree listing (don't have the ship yet though).

 

+edit

 

scratch that, didn't read the "hull" part, and ye it does say you lose 0.9km range with the hull upgrade

Hmm, in the wiki the gun range for the top configuration increases by just 500m.

 

Even if that is not a bug, they should change it.

Guns aren't able to elevate as much under the weight of all the added AA?

Haha, is that a thing?

 

Very strange, at the moment I have the A hull and the Gun range upgrade and the ship is pretty good.

 

How do you we ping Wargaming in these posts? Did I do this right? lol @MrConway

That does sound backwards, I'd be interested in seeing if it's intentional. I'm fairly sure this isn't the case on any other ship either.

Sadly it's not a bug & it gets worse when you use Gun fire control mod. 2 upgrade. :cap_wander:

Not that you're ever going to hit anything at 18km range. ?

Absolutely going to hit thing at 18km stationary battleships for example is pretty much free food for this ship + others in the line.

According to some interview, WG spend one more week on quality control of every update. You guys have seen the result of their work.

So... someone flipped a few signs in the ship's data. Well, it seems that WG has accidentally found the way to force closer combat: just find the "bug" and inoculate it to every single battleship so it becomes an epide... I mean, a "feature".

 

Salute.

Strange.... I was certain I thoroughly checked out every available new US Cruiser on the PTS.

Dunno how that one slipped past me either. :Smile_trollface:

 

Seriously by now I dunno why we still have the PTS other than for rewards.

Testing the new stuff with a larger playerbase can't really be the reason as this example shows. (even if it's intentional)

Fixed within two weeks for BBs, and two months for Seattle :Smile_trollface:

I'll check if this is intentional or a bug and let you know.

 

Edit: Its confirmed as a bug that will be fixed with 0.7.7!

OK, thanks that's useful to know as it seemed very weird.I'll hold off buying and playing it until then.
