So in practical terms this means I will miss by half a mile rather than sending shells into the next map. Right! Good to know WG is on the case.

Still garbage, just less so.

This, both Kanzas and Minessota are getting sold the moment I am able to do so and I am not touching that line with a 10 foot pole unless it gets a complete overhaul...

So the upgrade from 1.5 to 1.6 is like going from aFuso towards Dunkek level of accuracy? But an improvement is an improvement. If only they could shave a few secs from the reload.

 

But with the Kansas buff what’s the gunnery improvement from upgrading from Kansas towards Minnesota now? The only difference is access to the reload/ accuracy module for the Minnesota.

Well, already have the XP for Minnesota on her so doesn't change much for me beyond being less frustrating to play in coop in the future during snowflake events.

I doubt  they ever have played! Ammount of grind that was needed to get Junk ship as Kansas actually dives me like game less and less and in general insane grind to get just junk stuff! Fairly sure that original South Dakota- Class 1920 design would have  been much reasonable low tier BB than this imaginary refit of a ship that barely had its hull made!

Sigma was never one of the bigger issues with Kansas......

 

When nobody sails into range of it in the first place AND they have plenty of time to reverse the mistake while Kansas gunners takes a nap and a shower before they're ready to shoot!

The T10 is pretty good considering it has the same shells as Ohio and Georgia. The blap power is great on it. Worth having it imho, even though it's slow.

First new ranked season format extra small TX maps so Vermont will be a decent pick? I wonder if they can figure out something else to make Vermont uber pick in the new ranked season.

Make it a base defence mode like the operation Defence of Naval station Newport, then it won't have to go anywhere :Smile_trollface:

Never had any range issues with my Kansas, nor really with sigma: the shear volume of shells per volley takes care of that.

The one issue I do have is the pen against BBs

Issue with both Kanzas and Minnesota is that they are inconsistent in dealing damage, that might be ok if the ships were reasonably fast and durable such as say germans are so you can offset the inconsistency with endurance and positioning but the way they are now they are slow xp pinyatas for the enemy team, sure occasionally you get a devstrike salvo in, however other BBs get that as well and without being 21-22kt barges in T10 MM, enemy HE spammers dont even need to be esp competent to farm you to death within minutes...
