    Facts, Speculation, and Fixes: The USN Battleship Split

    They really should just pick a range, say 10km, 15km or 20km and list all dispersions at that range, even if a given ship can't reach the range selected. That way dispersion would be an understandable number without knowing the stuff the game doesn't tell you.
  2. The British found that AP rockets were more effective against shipping that the RP-3 HE rocket. AP rockets were used in the anti-ship role and HE rockets for attacks on tanks and other army targets. The rockets had been designed with the opposite use intended.
  3. You know the British had that fire control radar as well, yes?

    At max range. Arizona can't reach California's max range. Dispersion is a cone and the further out it is the wider it is. At Arizona's maximum range California's shells have the same 220m dispersion that Arizona does.

    How are they less accurate? They use the same American dispersion and have .1 higher sigma?

    That is what I said. You erred in claiming the reload boost goes from 33 seconds to 27.06 seconds as you have to consider what you'd have in slot 6 otherwise. Kremlin UU is utter trash. You trade one charge of consumables and 2km of range for less than 2 seconds of reload and better turret traverse, but the traverse was already great.

    Keep in mind you're replacing the main battery reload module which gives 12% faster reload, so the drop is not from 33 seconds to 27.06 seconds, it is from 29.04 seconds to 27.06 seconds.

    I'll still use Yamato's. Zao's seems 100% useless now. The main point was the 20% rudder shift while still getting a bit of range. The 7% dispersion reduction was mostly meaningless as Zao's native dispersion is so good. With the change to the UU why would a Zao player ever take that over the Gun Fire Control System Mod 2? You lose 6% of the range bonus for 7% of a bonus you don't need. The loss of the 20% rudder shift make the additional 6% range even more critical.

    So, um, what is the point of Zao's UU? The main point was the 20% rudder shift while still getting a bit of range. The 7% dispersion reduction was mostly meaningless as Zao's native dispersion is so good. With the change to the UU why would a Zao player ever take that over the Gun Fire Control System Mod 2?

    US BB Line Split is the new one

    Vermont looks like a version of Tillman III, but one that has had a Puget Sound style refit, like California, and so would no longer fit through the Panama Canal.

    California is worth it!

    Wyoming I liked, New York was meh, New Mexico I hated and Colorado was good. I sell all Tier IV and under tech tree ships, and I have Arkansas Beta to boot, so I sold Wyoming. I have Texas so I sold New York. I disliked New Mexico for multiple reasons and, even though I was born in New Mexico, sold it too. I kept Colorado as I found it to be a very good BB.

    the US BB line split

    Yes, I know. Kansas is the name WG gave to it because those names were used on actual ships that entered service. Kansas is the 1920 South Dakota class in WoWS.

    the US BB line split

    Not quite accurate. The Tier VIII, Kansas, was under construction as USS South Dakota (1920) when the Washington Naval Treaty was signed and the class was canceled. Tier IX and X were never considered as they seem to be Tillman I and a variant of Tillman III wherein Senator Tillman was asking for what the Navy saw as the ultimate goal of its BB program under the auspices of just skipping the incremental improvements and building the final class. Senator Tillman hated paying for battleships.

    These things better get a Nerf

    I have no idea what you are babbling about now. What does "IF you like CVs having disproportional attacks and AA against certain ships" even mean? What precisely have I defended in this thread? I pointed out your false claim and that was it really.

    These things better get a Nerf

    As I, and the OP, understand, the German CVs were not part of that nerf because they are still in testing and any and all aspects of them are subject to change with no need to be tied into any global changes.
