Unlayered AA needs to go

Bourgogne has identical AA layout to Republique, except it has some additional 20mm short range AA guns. These short range mounts prevent the mid range aura to go lower than 1.5km. Because of this, despite Bourgogne having straight up MORE AA, the short range aura has under half the DPS of Republique and has no flak bursts...

 

Basically non layered AA completely messes up the logic and highly favours ships that lack either the short, midrange auras or just has a high amount of AA spread out over as few different types of AA mounts as possible.

Salem vs DM AA is in the exact same position... one simply has the same BUT more AA.. yet the one with less somehow has better AA

I second this proposal. it just makes no sense and actually hurts ships with good medium or long range AA but also short range AA with long range with worse DPS and no bursts.

No. AA is way too strong right now, no need for further buffs.

my intention was never to buff AA, rather to nerf it.

 

For example make the 57mm or 76mm mounts stop shooting at 1.5km completely.

Funnily enough, the ship with the messiest AA setup in the game (Gangut) has pretty sensible auras.

... Which demonstrates that there's no consistency at all. The same guns laid out differently on another ship can have very different effects.
