Hi guys, we know Vlad, Soy and Kremlin have worse secondaries nowadays compared to Mass, Goargia and Ohio (tier by tier). With new captain skills, will these Russian BBs better than these Americans by all means? Thanks

No since they dont have the improved dispersion (unless they change that, which i doubt).
Also half of the russian secondaries are 100mm, which basicly shatter just about everywhere. Kremlin has 130mm, which wont do too much either except pen DDs and superstructures. The 152mm secondaries have bad reload (8 sec)

Thanks, but those Americans can't not pen either 27mm (for cruisers) or 50 mm (for battle cruisers and above). Does that mean the Russian secondaries will be as good as the Americans? Does dispersion affects a lot? Maybe after the captain skill change, Soyez will be as good as Georgia?

I thought the changes would universally nerf the BB secondaries, or am I mistaken? If that is the case, would those with good secondaries suffer proportionately more compared to the ones with less good secondaries?

Imagine having german secondary dispersion with the pen from US secondaries. Thats basicly what other nations secondaries will be like.

German secondary dispersion is not good. What they have going for them, is the improved penetration. So they dont hit as good as the US secondaries, but if they hit, they will more likely deal direct damage. US secondaries have insanely good dispersion (slightly less with the nerf to accuracy after the rework), but often wont pen much except the superstructure, or if Massa is toptier against Cruisers.

Also as i mentioned, the reload from the bigger secondaries on russian BBs is really bad. They can deal damage to certain ships, but they wont hit too good in the first place.

 

Another comparision:

FDG has a dispersion of 296m when shooting 24km. With 1,8 sigma.

Vladi has 316m dispersion with its secondaries at 5km. With 1,0 sigma.

Massas secondaries with manual secondaries have 123m dispersion at 11,3km.

Why would you even think that?
