I have a rule of thumb when upgrading my ships.  I don't upgrade something that sucks but only happens intermittently at the cost of something that happens continuously.  I figure you are always losing out in the end you just can't see it.

Having said that I REALLY want to switch to Main Battery Mod 2 upgrade over Aiming Systems 1.  This breaks my rule of thumb (loss of reload speed is always, traverse is sometimes).

Just want to hear other opinions on what people have done.

Thanks in advance!!!!

Actually, depending on the RN BB, I use AA Mod over ASM1. I don't think I use MBM2 on any RN BB.

It really doesn't matter how fast your reload is, if your guns can't stay on the target.

I did it for the Queen Elizabeth because it's so easy to out turn its guns, I run the mod with the special captain with improved EM skill to make her less frustrating. I brawl with mine and I need the turrets to move

The thing with RN BBs is that the temptation for slotting EM is only there for the Tier VI and below ones.  From KGV on, the turret traverse is vastly improved.

 

If you're keeping a dedicated captain for the Tier VI or below RN BBs, sure, EM sounds like a good idea.  Slap on ASM1 and you're good to go.  But if you're grinding down the line with that same captain, EM becomes a waste starting with VII KGV.  Even Nelson, DOY don't need need EM in Tier VII.  You could use EM for the VI and below RN BBs and then pay up Doubloons to retrain once you ding Tier VII.  But not everyone is into wasting Doubloons like that.

 

Personally, I feel that if you're using that same captain to go down the RN BB Line, skip out on EM and just deal with the slow traverse.  You're not going to be in low tiers and Tier VI that long.  But the time you spend in Tier VII on will be much longer and EM will be a waste there.
