Did WG Ever Lower Duke of York Citadel Back Down?

Before taking a break from the game for little while they had raised the citadel on my DOY rendering her a lot less usable than she had been. Has WG reversed this error or is she still eating far too many citadels?  Her Armor was always fairly soft, but was compensated for by a low citadel. After the adjustment in Summer or Fall of 2020 she started taking citadel hits like 75% of the time she got hit it seemed like.

Hoping she is ok now, since with the fact we now need 21 point captains to generate ECXP, I will be needing DOY to take her turn with my RN BB captain to speed up training process. But at the same time I don’t want to hurt DOY’s pre nerf stats.

No, and it was never an error.  British Tier VII+ BBs had their citadels raised and as a KGV class BB DoY's was raised the same as KGV.  DoY did get an additional RP charge though.

I remember when this happened. I was amused by how many people that professed to be against nerfing premiums were ok with it because DoY has never been a “good” premium and/or people hate HE-slinging BBs.

Been playing a lot of DoY past week for the campaign.  She seems decent on her armor when in tier, but doesn't up tier well.  I think the thing that bothers me the most is even though she is faster and has quicker rudder than a KGV, she seems MORE sluggish than a KGV.  She turns like a tub of goo....

Actually she has the same speed (28knts) but worse rudder shift than a fully upgraded KGV.

DoY has 17.5s rudder whilst KGV with the upgraded B Hull has a 15s rudder shift

She's is unsurprisingly faster and turns better than KGV's stock A hull (21s RS) and Engine (26.6knts)

No idea why given how similar the sister-ships naturally otherwise are.

And yes, I find the rudder shift is the most painful thing about DoY, which I otherwise also rather like.

duhh I for got about the upgraded hull... Yeah I actually use the rudder shift over the damage control...don't seem to miss the DC, but just being able to turn a bit better helps.   This ship really needs her spotter plane.
