Just curious to see if anyone from WG can shed any light on whether the OKT will get any kind of accuracy buffs to put her in line with the rest of the new USSR BBs that have recently been added. Been playing her a lot in order to get commanders ready fr the new ships, but have noticed that her accuracy at close range is still all over the board. She does not reliably hit anything, even under 10k. If she will not be getting any kind of accuracy buffs or anything thats fine, but I feel that a SLIGHT buff would help her feel more at home when training captains as a premium ship. just my opinion. thoughts?

I doubt you'll see any changes to Oktober made. When the RN BBs were released, I don't believe Warspite got any upgrades. Same with Gallant and the RN DDs, or Fushun/Loyang and the Pan-Asian DDs.

She doesn't need help.

The fact that only Broken A.F. Caesar does better than Okt.Rev means that this RU BB doesn't need any more help.

Nikolai could use some of those sweet short range accuracy enhancements as well! :Smile_trollface:

I believe the BB line intro was when Warspite got it's turret rotation buffed from identical to the QE to what it is now.

Really I would rather fight a Nikolai more often than the Orion. She isn't really over powered these days with all the sky cancer and her having no AA.

Man isnt that the truth.  I was seal clubbing two nights ago like I do now and I ran out of seals and turned the corner and there they were.  Hosho and Langley.. running for their tiny little lives.  It was the most pathetic battle in the history of the world.  I could only use my front turret and they could only launch a single weapon at a time.  Of course I shot down zero planes and I got one of them and I flooded/burned/died a horrible death.

Hmm. Could be, the RN BBs came out almost two years ago now, and my memory's not the greatest.

Warspite got her turret traverse buff long before the RN BB Line released.  Which was why I was irritated when Queen Elizabeth came with the much later Line release and had Warspite's old traverse.

LOL

I still remember the screaming by many here that her overpoweredness needed to be preserved for the betterment of the game.

Oh. I always figured it was a way of balancing her since QE had better AA. She also has a bit more range, 2k more HP. Of course Warspite has a narrower turning circle and better secondaries. Eh, Brit boats are kind of known for their turrets in desperate need of DW40. Why do you think I use the unique upgrade for Conqueror over more concealment.

There really is no reason for QE to have that slow traverse when Warspite got the improved one, except to make QE as a "FreeXP past this inconvenience" ship.  You slog through all the prior tiers of RN BBs with the same very slow traverse and hitting you up in Tier VI one more time.

 

If QE has Warspite's traverse, it would still not infringe upon Warspite's shtick.  Their AP shells are pretty different, i.e. Warspite is traditional and QE's are "RN BB style short AP fusing."  Warspite has great Secondaries while QE would have the superior AA suite.

 

It would have been fine.  Which is why I was upset when QE got thrown under the bus like this.  She's really your tax you have to pay before getting into the far superior, much more comfortable KGV in Tier VII.

Yeah well you see those every now and again where it's a crappy ship and there seems to be little effort made to make it less crappy. Ognevoi was the first ship I ever free xp'd past back when it was the tier VI. I really enjoyed the Kiev though (especially after my first secondary kill with it was a detonation and the player went ballistic in chat, good times).
