Best part is they've fixed the blast bag colors for Mo, Monty and Iowa! Though I'm extremely happy for my warspite!

Damn. I may have to add her to the Fleet now. That was my biggest gripe. Nice!

No word on that. I'm assuming it's because they have not officially released her yet or something.

Or, there's the chance that it's not happening. I wouldn't know.

Nothing in the patch notes stating or about her. And nothing stating she received the turret reverse buff that was tested for her. So since it's not in the patch notes, I would assume they didn't go through with the buff for her. She will prob have the glacial turret traverse still. Or they've yet to add it or state it since she's not out yet and they could still buff that on her.

The madmen... I am actually shocked they are going to do this, since its much more testy to role something like this back. And this is a HUGE buff, now she's a true brawler.

 

Not really—her traverse is still going to be slow. Warspite'll just be slightly more comfortable to play with now.

I'm guessing she's not in the patch notes, because she hasn't been released yet.  It's technically not a buff since her stats aren't finalized.

I'll happily drive the Grand Old Lady but tbh I never found the slow turret speed to be a problem thanks to the great turning.

Same. It won't really change anything for me, but it's still a nice thing to have. Makes it a little quicker to unshadow her turrets and the like.

Now all she needs is a range buff to actually be competitive.  16.3km BB range when I'm regularly in T8 matches where BBs have 20km range is ludicrous.  Needs to be extended to at least 18.5 km.

No, with EM her traverse is comparable to all the others, and actually faster than the Bayern (w/o EM), way faster than Fuso (even with EM), and faster than both USN T6's. Add in awesome secondaries, her wacky armor scheme, and Warspite's gona be a great brawler BB.

 

She already was a great brawling BB. You just had to plan ahead. Now you have to plan ahead a little less. That's all.

Her concealment largely makes up for the low range. And she has a spotter plane to get those opening salvos off. 

IMO, she's totally fine with her range right now.

So I take it your reaction is, happy? Extatic? Overjoyed? I'm not sure which word to use...

i am not happy about any buff of a premium ship

 

warsprite might deserve a buff, but it being permanent without any way to be nerfed if it happens to be too strong makes me dislike it

 

they should nerf premiums like, say, warthunder does

Mild happiness. While the buff doesn't make the ship any stronger for me, it does make the Warpite more comfortable, and her gunnery more responsive.

It won't change how I play her in the slightest, but a buff to one of my favorite ships is always welcome.

I guess I have to change my Warspite play style. I turned ship to traverse guns instead of turning them in turret.

When I first got Warspite she was competitive and really fun to play.  Since the shift (shaft really) in MatchMaking making Tier 6 a generally bad spot, Warspite has been collecting barnacles at her mooring. It's not that she's a bad ship now, just that new Premiums like Arizona and Scharnhorst plus the German BBs have made Warspite less competitive. 

 

Power creep seems inevitable, and I'm glad that WG is fixing some older Premiums that really need some attention.  Like the buffs to Ishizuchi's range and concealment.  Those were sorely needed.
