yes this is a Russian nerf... Fight me. :fish_glass:

I really hope these changes make it through testing... because the current state of Russian BBs is just not healthy for the game :fish_book:

Does this mean that (if it happens) KM BBs will become able to shoot straight(ish)? What witchcraft is this?!

No, every T6+ ship that has hydro already will be able to mount "hydro mod 1" which is obtainable for coal.

The Midway torps were *mostly* pathetic, it's true. But the Tiny Tims and DBs I felt made up for it... hm. Ok then.

 

The German BB and Salem changes are nice.

German BB's

 

Hummm......I'm glad, but worried about the impact. :cap_cool:

 

Better dispersion means more German BB captains will wanna stay at the back more.    Not good for a tanking ship.  Have to see but on first glance, it's good (i think).

 

40's radar is yeah, nice. But the range of the radar is easy to work around for a dd Captain unless surprised.

Maybe, maybe not. 

Even if so, it just means that a red lining KM BB player might actually hit something at max range, and that is clearly an improvement.

I feel there might be a need for some sort of algorithm in the game that pings up a message to "hand back your Richard-swinging manliness card!"* if a KM BB doesn't get within a respectable brawling distance of the foe during a game...?

 

 

 

 

*Whilst, obviously, not encouraging toxic masculinity!

But we don't want to encourage it! Far too much of that at the most.

 

But considering most BB's are doing it anyway (because they have to *debatable*) it's not fair for German BB's to lose out so...

 

I think this can go either way, so gonna see with this one.

Mate, i can see more German BB captains staying at max range. I can see it now and it's making me feel uncomfortable.

Sadly, I fear you may be right; based on recent observation (at the weekend) though, to have *more* German BB captains sniping might well require some re-writing of the laws of maths/physics/the time-space continuum...?

You don't realise the pain of missing every shot at 5km with a Kurfurst, only for a Kremlin to come and hit almost every shot at 15 km....

Why would you camp back in a Kurfurst when there are 10x better alternatives for that... I mean there's always a downside with these kind of balance changes but i honestly don't think that will be such a big issue.

Mate, lemme tell you something. Have a seat, grab a drink and listen...or read...whatever. ^^

 

WG could decrease the range of all BBs across the board to 10km, give them 5meters of bow, stern, deck and belt plating, give them the invulnerability consumeable from the Halloween Event that runs for 5 mins straight with a 10 second cooldown and have them replenish 50% hitpoints with each hit. 

 

WG could do all that and it wouldn't change a bloody thing. Someone who wants to camp will camp no matter what, regardless of which nations BB he plays.

Why indeed and that is the eternal question isn't it?????

 

However, most casual German BB players do...Go figure.
