Hi, long time on/off player, first time post'er. 

My question is why the heck has a T9 with the same guns as the T8 balitmore have such a short range?

Am i missing somthing? I mean i can understand longer reload for 'balance' but the range is stupid short. 

Dont get me wrong im a BB main so i make mistakes in CA but with the range being soooo limited when i make a mistake im in under 15km range and mostly against T10 so i go bye bye. 

 

Any one else have this problem, is this somthing that needs to be tweeked/eddited or can any one suggest somthing to help this crippled ship. 

Any help much appreciated 

Many thanks

Cpt. Funky_DM

You can use the range upgrade to extend her range up to 18km which is more than sufficient. Reload is higher than Balti because you get an extra turret which more than makes up for it if you use it well.

 

The base range is short due to balancing reasons. USN 203mm guns have improved bounce angles and good penetration capability that are deadly to most cruisers at any but the highest of ranges. HE performance isn't bad either.

Its weird how USN cruisers are like godlike in close ranges so you don't need the range. But because of the meta you want to hug islands and lob shells over it at the same time. :/
