Yo, when the heck did Repulse get engine boost? Did I miss something?

She had it since she was added to the game, it was seen in stats websites and the extended tech tree mod as soon as she was in. The original dev blog missed mentioning it for some reason.

 

That is a pretty huge deal for Repulse, a 31.8kt ship with an engine boost but with 3'/s traverse was looking pretty unpleasant to play, easily out-turning her turrets compared to Hood (32kt but 5'/s) or ships like Georgia/Jean Bart with high speed but also faster traverse. That's a very reasonable trade for a more normal, but still better than the base 8% engine boost.

Cut the turret rotation in half?  Must have really sucked before they did that.

Are you retiring?

Yes; yes he is: 

I had no idea that the gun rotation on Repulse was quite so horrific. Speed boost aside, that change alone will make her quite a bit more desirable - likewise Ragnar with the 360 degree spin being put on her guns (which Smaland also really needs, but alas the model won't allow it, which is a pity as Oland at Tier 8 DOES have it, at least on the aft gun).

So you have to keep buffing Airstrike do you?

Ragnar: now with useful radar and no longer outgunned by a Shima

Repulse: A British BB with turrets that turn faster than it takes to make tea, what sorcery is this? Maybe they put caffeine in said tea and gave it to the crew. Also props to nerfing the engine boost no one knew she had but actually does, and good call considering 32knts +15% boost at T6 sounded filthy (Repulse still looks pretty damn strong for T6 though)

Repulse still have poor armor, so she may end up quite balance, albeit she may be one of the best tier 6 when downtier.

Well I mean apparently it was 54s before, which is ABYSMAL for a battlecruiser with only six 15in guns....At least Gneisenau's turrets can move! and thankfully it looks like Repulse's turrets can now move too! that's a good change, at least. Not too such about the buffing to airstrikes though...
