Artillery plotting room modification 1 now lacks purpose.

I was looking over the modifications for my US BBs the other day and it struck me how pointless the +16% range this mod grants has become.  It used to be a necessary feature for some US Battleships I'm order to compete with IJNs Superior range. Yet after the patch which buffed US BB range it is rather useless since they lack accuracy to reliably landed shells at those ranges.

 

I'm off the opinion it should be replaced but with what I am unsure. Accuracy buffs world be nice but it would encroach on the IJN "flavor" and an AA buff would be rather superfluous.  A rate of fire buff would help too but really doesn't stand out as an interesting nation flavor.  I think this mod should get some TLC and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions?

Newsflash, it was allways at best dodgy as an option on US BB's. The alternatives still exist and remain useful.

I agree that it's usefulness was highly questionable in tier 8+ but the lower tiers lost the ability to mount the accuracy module every other nation gets by default and in exchange get this one which is now pretty much worthless.

Colorado has 2.0 sigma, I believe.

Arizona needs it to be competitive.

And N. Carolina benefits as well.

Put your scout plane up and the range you get is incredible. Sure you cannot reliably hit anything, but if you do, you can get deck pens for citadels. Its fun to citadel a Bismarck at 26km.

A must have on North Carolina, Arizona, and New Mexico. What it does do is reduce dispersion at optimum fighting ranges. On North Carolina it makes the ship playable at least.

Or maybe give the USN BBs an extra module slot for more upgrades? The module slot it takes up could be different as well. With the RN BB power creep, the USN BBs could need it.

It's usefulness was questionable at every tier. There was no tier IMO where using it was optimal.

^ Yes, to the Carl you listen.

 

AA mod was generally better anyway.
