Topic points

1. Spotting range  - cant see, cant shoot

2. Low speed - cant keep up with the eyes/ears...rest of fleet to be in range.

3. Low Range - cant shoot targets due to low range of guns....effect of point 2.

There for this line is heavly dependent on other players support where as the other nations lines can snipe from range or speed in to brawler range. Overall I think this is a great addon to the game and will see more bbs looking for team play stead of turrtles farm from map edge.

Regarding speed, you simply need to be decisive on where you are going.  Most BBs aren't fast until much higher in tiers.

 

Range?  There is nothing wrong with the range, it's competitive.

Are you talking about Tier III Bellerophon?  Stock her max gun range is 13.7km and that *is* short.  Research, buy, and slot the Gunfire Control System, the one that says  "Mk III mod 2," as that adds 1.3km to your gun range.

 

In Battleships, most of them when you want to increase main battery range, the Gunfire Control System / GFCS module to upgrade into does the trick.  For some it's not by a whole lot but there at least is a gain.

 

Also again in seeing targets to shoot at, really, look into the Detection system in that link I provided.  In general, stealthy Destroyers sneaking around and spotting, or CV aircraft are your best friends in finding threats to shoot at.  The bigger the ship, the easier it is to detect.  Lastly as a word of warning, just because you are sailing along and don't see anything within 20km to threaten you, but you see the "DETECTED!" warning sign, take heed, something is stalking you and setting you up for attack, even though you can't see them.  Detection, Concealment plays heavily into that and BBs are the worst in concealment (most of them).

Not sure if it has a spotter plane option but if it does that gives you 20% added to your range ... although it takes some to get used to

No iron duke...its stock. Just looked at the range its 15k for the guns.

 

Same thing, upgrade your Gunfire Control System.  For Iron Duke, that adds 1.5km to your range.

 

The only BB line that is absolutely swimming throughout the tiers in gun range are IJN BBs.
