Once I mastered map awareness, planning and tea brewing, using Warspite was a piece of cake... err... a crumpet!

Warspite selfishly used up all the WD-40.

 

Exactly; though she might have loaned some to my Mutsuki; that or I just got used to its slow turning guns as well.

It aint much better with KGV. Using the mod and Expert marksman, the fastest turret rotation that I could get is 34 seconds for a 180. :Smile_sad:

What's WG's hangup about giving Teabag ships crappy turret rotation? :cap_wander_2:

Historical and balance reasons, more or less (most all RN BBs except NelRod traversed slower actually).  72s is the slowest traverse WG goes down to for gameplay balance purposes, and the RN BBs generally had the worst traverse historically (only Yamato/Musashi had slower).  Though the RN BBs already buffed to 45s base starting from T7; instead of staying 72s all the way up.

 

And that's on top of:

  • Great HE with - 1/4 Pen, Large AoE, and High Firestarting Rates
  • Short Fuse AP (better cruiser-killers, worse vs BBs at longer ranges)
  • 25s RoF (KGV and Monarch only)
  • Better than average ruddershift (for BBs)
  • Higher than average BB concealment
  • Good dispersion
  • Warspite Repair Party (up to T8)
  • Hyper Repair Party (T9/10)

Warspite got the traverse buff to 55s to further differentiate her from QE, and Hood got it in order to help balance her.

 

It's also the same reason the IJN BBs still retain a 40~44s traverse on average with Yamato having a 72s traverse (Yamato's is also buffed).

meh,  ironduke even stock hull seem to be pretty strong ship anyway.   I just played my first match and I did  85k   and 3 kill in a loss where our CV sucked.   all I used was HE at that :P

You'd have been better using a Jagdtiger than a Jadgpanther. The Jagdpanther could get its gun on a target quicker than the Panther when turning its turret 90 degrees....however you could be in trouble if you had to rotate back and forth unless you were planning on digging a hole you couldnt drive out of.

RN BB turret traverse rates.

 

Measured not with a stopwatch, but with a calendar.

I'm kind of scared to imagine how that image came into existence... but it's pretty damn perfect for our purposes!

I was dying to get my guns on target in the Orion and my firing window always closes right as the traverse makes it over.:cap_old:
