Might be the same 'buff' the gave Roon and Hindenburg. ^^

I'd rather see the main guns improved, secondarys are too meme-ish to be useful all of the time.

I still dont think, german BBs in general need a Buff. Its just WG changing the game, so secondary BBs suffer the most.

The best thing they could do, is rework captain skills like AFT/BFT and Manual Secondaries. And maybe change/swap the 3rd slot modules (even if its only for german BBs, US BBs also have a special module) for Secondary range and MB accuracy. Germans could have a special module combining both.

And for AFT/BFT ive said it before: The 3 benefits AA/Secondaries/Mainguns need to be seperated, so that one skill buffs AA, one Secondaries and one or 2 cheaper ones Main battery. AA buffs for AFT/BFT are a joke anyway, wouldnt be bad if you would get both benefits for 4 pts, same goes for secondaries. Ofc, getting both reload and range for your mainbattery for 4 pts is a bit too much maybe, so they could move them to 2/3 pt skills respectively.

And Manual secondaries need to fire without buff if i dont select a target, and same rule applied if i have 1 ship on each side, so i can select one target, and the other side also fires without dispersion buff.

Secondary range and dispersion would be my choice as I am a secondary fiend!

 

AFT is no longer a good skill for improving AA, perhaps it should be reworked with greater secondary benefits, perhaps 30% range 30% dispersion.

 

It's worth noting that in the stream they mentioned German battleships. The Montana, and all premiums strong and weak, was left out the USN battleship buff.

I feel that could easily happen to the GK.

Well GK could use a secondary buff like improving range to a maximum of 12.5 km, dispersion is reduced by 15%. Maybe they can give them 5 heals by default with a cool down of 60 seconds or maybe they can give them AFT already build in?

They took a look at the statistics and realised that the 'hit-ratio' is quite high so german BBs Sigma gets decreased by 0,1 because its not their flavour.

Gets replaced with russian ‘lead lease’ version.

 

da balans comrade!

 

but gib her like 2-3km sec range with 20% better accuracy and either increase dispersion on main guns or make gun angles more usable.

 

maybe better aa gfk’s and fdg’s seem pretty easy to strike with carriers.

 

or just one of these idk.

Give me a +2km secondaries buff and i'll be satisfied.

I'd prefer a Massa style accuracy buff so mansec isn't mandatory anymore

You will see in the detailed report after the battle:

"1000 secondary shots -> 1 hit -> 100 dmg"

Last I checked in the QnA WG were happy with where GK was sitting stats-wise. This was maybe 1-2 months ago if my memory serves me right. So at the moment no, no plans on a GK buff.

Maybe they did, I don't know but I haven't heard anything about it. As to what particular changes I'm curious.

But that's not a problem, because it gets compensated by a stunning buff of the secondaries: Firing angles improved by 1 degree to each side!

While I'd like some secondary oriented buffs, mostly to offload some demand for captain skills, they already can be source of reliable-ish damage without any form of user engagement. Tying secondaries buffs to Sector thingy perhaps?
