  • UK BB Ranges(Outdated Since BB34 Patch)

    09. 27. 2006 14:30

ok, since I see too many ppl asking about the ranges of guns and tarrifs info is
outdated and not too accurate I will post my results here.
This is ONLY to compare the range of the UK guns I don't even provide you with an
absolute distance as I do not want this to become a flaming post about nation's
advantages, disadvantages and so on...
I tested every gun with 10 full salvos from my Lion's three guns at max angle,
shooting north, took 1 picture each and let my computer calculate a average

(And yes - contrary to the common misbelief, the average range is, what counts.
Higher gunners with less spread DO NOT shoot further then low level gunners. In fact, some
stray shells from crappy gunners will fall further ahead then they do if shot by a
blocking gunner - and.. my gunners block all guns anyways ;-)

update :
old gun ranges thrown out since nothing changed from the PBB patch to this one - except
the lvl120 guns.

You wouldn't need the same BO and ship to do these tests for other nations..
couldn't you just count the dots on the sight lines? This graph, as good as it is, can
become an uber gun range graph covering all 4 nations... I'm hoping someone in
that has access to the other nations BB's does the same.

Going to run my own tests as i'm curious :)

The amount of people i see not being able to understand the graph is insane...
maybe if you drew a little boat on the bottom of the chart to show where the shells
came from or something.. or even a big red arrow going up.

Is this new update accurate after the ONF balancing?
and Thanks Adalbert, very good post. Im just curious how would you go about "letting your
computer calculate an average distance"?

I know that it is not totally wrong and that it is 'good enough' for a basic comparison,
however these show a situation where there is hardly any influence of the smaller
differences ingame in battle (as north/south range is totally screwed up and such battles
tend to occur during the later phases of the game only, anyway).

Considering that the difference in range when firing north seems to be smaller than when
firing east/west, this may also lead people who believe in the 'Compare markers of only 2
volleys or even markers and impact splashes' method to overrate their 'findings' even more.

Anyway... as I said: Good enough, I just don't really like it.

As those tests are just ment to compare those guns with each other it doesn't really
matter in wich direction they are shot. It's a controlled testing environment which was
the same for all guns.
You can not read any 'range-number' out of them or compare them to gunranges of other
nations that other players posted - and that's on purpose.
