  1. Terrible dispersion on Iowa

    I think we both are misunderstanding each other. What you say is partially true in the sense that my survivability and in turn damage output is less because of my inability to position and play the ship correctly, and I can agree to that. However, what I am mainly complaining about in my original post is the fact that shooting at a ship from 14km away has about as much distance in between each shell by the time they land to comfortably fit 2 north carolinas side by side in that gap. Not to mentioned vertical ( from the shooter's perpective) deviation from where I aim and where the shell groupings land. I am not talking about lead time, that's offsetting where I aim in anticipation of where the target will be.

    If this is the case then the iowa is even worse than I thought. Having to get that close up to someone in a high tier match in a vessel as slow and easy to detect as this ship is a death sentence. The only way would possibly be if you had a good team or people dedicated to watching your flanks (but in random battles let's be real), but with how exposed the iowa citadel is even a t8 cruiser could cause massive damage in a few salvos if they're positioned as little as 15-20 degrees to the side of my bow

    Interesting, so are you saying that if that bug exists, if I were to fire at targets without locking onto them then there would be better dispersion accuracy?

    ah right. And when is the last time you took it out for a spin?
  5. Hello friends, I recently got the iowa after a long grind, and the first thing I did was install the artillery plotting room 2 modules for that -11% bonus. However playing it in the past few games has been anything but accurate. I constantly struggle to get past 40k damage on average for a game with this ship. First I thought I was just bad, but I do very well with cruisers and even when I took out the New Mexico again for a spin. I've seen videos from Noster, etc. on youtube playing with the Iowa and their shot groupings are very tight, however when I shoot most of the time my shots end up all over the place. I try to limit my engagement range between 13 to 16km so I should not be having these problems. Did something change in recent updates, why is the Iowa so bad?
