Would it be more appropriate to make repulse a t9 battlecruiser instead of a low tier bb? considering most of the other nations have not just 1 already but 2.

Personal opinion: No, no it would not. Not only is she much older than any of the super cruisers at T9, but her ship characteristics would also effectively make her an XP pinata at that tier.

I really don't see how a WWI era ship with 6 15" guns is going to cut it at T9. Compared to say Iowa, she would have less guns, smaller guns, less armor, worse AA, and be slower. WG would have to empty the entire Box O' GimmicksTM on her to make that work. She fits in well at T6, basically a QE that gives up 2 guns for speed. Makes sense.

British have plenty of other battlecruiser plans that could be stuck at T9, no need to ruin a historical ship to do that. And T6 isn't low tier, that's mid tier.

Yeah I was told renown might be better since repulse never got a refit.

Remember - Battle Cruisers were not meant to go up against Battleships . They were built to out run BB ,  BB tended to be 21 - 24 knots top speed on average at the time when Battlecruisers were conceived.
They were meant to be cruiser killers & fleet recon.
HMS Renown & HMS Repulse were also called HMS Refit & HMS Repair .

tier 6 works right for reknown, she was a battlecruiser variation of the Revenge class of Battleships. which was basicly a "well if the queen elzibeth experiment doesn't work we'll have these less radical battleships entering service at the same time" so she was introduced around the same time as the QE class and Bayren class, with similer technological sophistication.
