Why not buff the A hulls instead?

I personally like the A hulls of allot of ships, sure most suck to grind, so instead of getting rid of them why doesn't WG buff them? To me that would be the easier solution while keeping the historical beauty of some of these ships

Well, I mean, the downsides of these old dreadnaught hulls was that they had less armor and almost no AA. So, to buff them, they would have had to add AA and armor where it didn't exist until the refits. I'd expect to see those stock battleships return like Mutsu, though.

I love my IJN warships, but even i would have a hard time convincing myself to buy an A hull Amagi or Fuso.  Down tiered or not, those hulls were terrible to play.  Especially A hull Fuso and her 14 (?) km range.

Except that the "historical" aspect of some of these hulls were the problem, lots of those A hulls had crap for AA, buffing them would often just make them B hulls anyways.

 

Also having to pay for 2 hull upgrades was a bit of a drag on these ships...

AA isn't much of a issue with the lack of CVs, the biggest issues in my opinion was rudder shift and lack luster gun range for most ships not to mention HP. Buffing the rudder and adding some HP would go along way to helping the A hulls

I'd also find it annoying if Yamashiro gets sold as a premium in A hull Fuso configuration because that's pre-pagoda and I rather like Yamashiro's sturdier looking pagoda.

Id much rather they give some ships a unique variant using that hull slot.


 

Mogami for example, could have the A hull be it's 'light cruiser' hull. Lower HP and/or armor, visibility, etc,etc and good rotation rate for the guns. B and C hull cannot use the 155mm's but give more armor, more hp, adjusted visibility,etc,etc... the 'heavy cruiser' .

There's not that few carriers in the mid tiers. Seems like about half the games I play in at tier 6 and 7 have a carrier in them.
