Edited out the ETA again. As long as we don't have final dates, I am not goignt o allow a
semi-official release time.

------------------------------
Due to the lack of attention on the test server forums, and many people missing out
on the balance debates, I'm going to be posting updates here about the ongoing
MN/SN balance patch.

Some BB changes so far (Not all, not final, and subject to change!)

BB3 Strasbourg - x4 13"/50 cal Model 1931 (Level 81)

crew)
Turning force increased from 18 to 21
R Space increased from 349 -> 409 (5 binds total)
Gun Space required: 320 -> 372
Shellweight per bind: 105.6 -> 85.5
Gun Accuracy bonus: +2
Gun Required Level: 81 -> 79
Gun Rename to x4 13"/50 cal Model 1934 (otherwise name is the same as the PBB
guns)
T space (large): 120 -> 153 (for a new set of quad 5.1" As)


BB4 Richelieu - Lvl 91 x4 14.96" /45 cal Model 1935
R Space increased from 442 -> 450 (should be 5 binds)
Base speed increased by 2 knot from 25 to 27 (Main guns+ammo+engine+FCS+ lv
120 crew)

Light HE damage increased from 1120 -> 1330 (~33k/salvo -> ~38k/salvo)

T space: Large: 112-> 153 (see richy)
T space: Small: 57 -> 86 (see richy)

Note, submergence may be nerfed soon due to the increase in DP and spread.

Base Speed +2 from 23 to 25
BB Charlemagne: R-Space: 737 -> 747

I really am feeling the IM needs a range nerf or a turning force nerf. atm its way to
nimble and way to effective for a bb3. in comparison to the NC or stras. I have seen IM
this week sink 2/3 bb5 well being fired on by all of them. As soon as its in range it is
to hard to hit and can 1 shot with relatively low level crews.

You can't get any worse submergence than the H44. Its weaknesses are DP, Submergences,
Gun placement and range.

Is it getting a submergence nerf at the time of the patch? What will be it's other
weaknesses? Most bb5's have at least two. How soft will it be after the submergence
change? Worse or better than the h44?

SN BB6 vs MN BB6 should be pretty hilarious.

Its getting a submergence nerf, and the Montana still has a better spread. Again, turn up to
battle tests, that is the main problem we are having currently.

And the MN BB6 doing 42 knots is fine.

I feel bad for monty drivers. Maybe I'm being blind, but where's the Alsace's disadvantage?

Is there a 2 gun speed nerf for the Alsace? Cause that is a tough set up to fight anyway
but with +1 acc it will be even harder.

Personally I thought the Alsace was OP and everything in that list is buffing it!

It is allways 'good' to see those comments after a lot of work has already been done.

I mean, it is easy to claim somethingis not right from here, but I haven't seen a single
comment when this was extensively discussed on the testserver forums...

As for the reasoning:

The MN BB6 is the one with the lowest range of all, besides that it will get a slight
damage nerf. That combined with the huge target on the back we feel this should be the
right choice.
As for the comments that it should be slower than the lower tier.... that doesn't go for
several other BB6 already also.

oh my god...one time I have to agree with Whitworth

making BB6 going 42 knots is retarded, unless it has AT LEAST less range than all BB5s
