I had a look at the Yubari again after the patch , and noticed the (one and only) 2nd.ary gun just had 2 km in range .... did it not used to have 4km ?   do I remembr it wrong ?

The secondary gun is not even that much smaller than the main armament. It's a 120mm cannon which the earlier Japanese DD carries. In a ship with as few guns as the Yuubari, I don't see why it needed this nerf. I hardly get to even use it in the first place, even if it is at 5km. The Yuubari just not very good when the fight gets too close, nerfing OR buffing that single secondary 120mm cannon will not change a thing.

I would not be adverse to them giving it an ahistorical setup, a bit like Warspite. Give it the main gun that used to be in place of the 120mm. 5 guns isn't much, but it is still 25% better than 4. And that 120mm is just bad right now. And it isn't as if the Yubari can't use an extra main gun.

Not a very nice thing to do to people who have already paid real money for this thing...

I dont know if the range changed, but if so:

Im guessing that it has something to do with the fact that the 120mm gun is a multi purpose gun?

At least it was in the ships datasheet as secondary gun and also as AA gun. So maybe to powerfull vs planes if it can hit planes 4km away?

It has always been DP, and it has never really been good. It has been good in the sense that it has often provoked planes to withdraw. But it's actual damage was paltry. As a short range gun with low damage, yeah that's worthless.

The Yubari is not exactly overpowered with guns, so adding in the old single main gun in it's place would help the ship a bit.

Yuubari, the worse ship of the preorder pack gets its speed and secondaries ninjanerfed.

 

Meanwhile, Gremiaschy is still the same.

 

Why WG? This is pure malice.

Then again, Gremmy took an indrect hit.

57 knot torpedoes? Might as well not have them at all.

130mm AP rounds? Forget about it, spam HE like everything that isn't a BB.

Nope you are spot on, I hadn't noticed the change but yes pre-patch was 4 km now a measly 2 km - when 'viewed' as secondary battery.

Happily, it retains it's 5 km range when 'viewed' as an AA gun.

 

 

I didn't understand the discrepancy, 4 km in one mode and 5 km in the other but now I guess it's that it just reacts to vessels less sensitively than aircraft: such that now no reaction until ships enter the 2 km aura.

 

 

Strangely, this exemplifies a reverse logic with regards spotting, as ships are considerable larger than planes ... :amazed:

C'mon guys, that gun clearly made ship OP and you know it, pre 3.1 it was disgusting how much damage Yuubari could do, even more than tier 10 ships could do!

What I really don't get is what kind of feedback was the one that made devs nerf her? From players? Like anyone will complain about Yuubari except a CV or a DD whic incidentally should be countered by a cruiser. From battle statistics? What happened? does Russian testers are gods on the Yuubari? because if they are I want to see then.

The only reason i can come up with is if that is done for when DP guns can shoot at torpedoes?
