So after all this grinding I finally got the legendary upgrade for my beloved Zao - only to be shocked to find that you put it into slot 6. Seriously, a T10 heavy cruiser with 17.5km range, is that a joke? The range is atrocious even with the regular slot 6 module, but half of that from a LEGENDARY upgrade? Why not put it into slot 5 like the Hindi one?

Because itr would allow the Zao to stack both range improvements?

Are you a troll or an island hugger?

 

The range difference is very slight. 1.3 or 1.5km, I kinda forgot...

You can use a spotter plane on Zao btw :)

I'm neither. It's just not much of "legendary" upgrade if the downsides outweigh the upsides.

The range difference is significant because of all the heavy cruisers, the Zao already has pretty much the lowest range.

And I'm mainly complaining about the slot, not the actual "upgrade", don't get me wrong. Zao counters Hindi and with this upgrade, it gets even worse rather than better, compared to the stock module.

Legendary modules are meant to be sidegrades, not straight up buffs. In Zao's case, it is less range benefit in return for better rudder shift and added accuracy. If you think standard range mod is better, well, then the legendary module might just not be for your playstyle.

Grinds a Legendary mod, pouring hours into the ship without doing any homework on the mod itself Flawless intelligence. But seriously,  the range difference is almost nothing, if its affecting your gameplay so much, you must be sticking to that maximum range circle like super glue. If your really having issues, get a spotter place mod and slot it onto your zao and slap on jack of all trades + everything else that reduces consumable reload time, gl hf.

Not quite true - on DM you get double propulsion mod.To quote: "When combined with Propulsion Modification 2 (-50% to time for reaching full power. / Increases engine power when the ship starts moving.), the ship will accelerate from 0-27 knots in approximately 8 seconds."
