Over ranged guns.jpgCaptains perk.jpg

 

All ships who's main guns are upto 155mm gain 20% extra range from secondary gun perk. My Nurnberg has a range of 19.72km's. Other ships also get this when the captains perk is enabled as well.

 

Issue:   Main gun upto 155mm getting 20% extra range

Screenshots: captains perk, over ranged guns
Ship: Nurnberg, Cleavland, Mogami
Map: Any
Occurrences:  Constantly
Tested:During all types off game play
Severity: Makes ships too overpowerd
Details: Captains tier 4 secondary gun perk also gives main guns an extra 20% range.

It is a bug because it is in the secondary armament perks. Not main guns.

 

And you gain AA defense rating on your ship stats. Not artillery stats.

I know it works as it is read, but being a secondary armament perk it should not increase the range of main guns, it should only increase the range of the AA and secondary cannons.

 

This is why alot of people dont upgrade to the 203mm guns on the Mogami for example. 203mm 15.1km   /    155mm  18.12km

If you can hit anything 18 km away in a Mogami, I applaud you.

Perositi - the skill has been reworded since it was added into the perk tree, several have. Although it is in the Secondary Armament list, the perk does in fact apply to all guns of that caliber and below, so the wording is the bug, not the perk it self.

So, we've been told that it is a legitimate bug report.

 

In that case, I apologise for the mistake of trolling you, and you are right.

Which is rather strange since long ago there was the very similar report like yours after the RUdevs messing with em to only mess with the secondaries and the AA guns to shoot further.

 

Guess the AFT skill is still pretty much used for guns smaller than 155's.

Just to clarify,

 

Back in closed beta, the skills Basic/Advanced fire training were only for secondary guns, AA guns and destroyer guns up to 155mm (and was also worded to tell the player it was secondaries only) , somewhere along the way between open beta and release, Wargaming decided to change the skill to affect all guns (main or secondary) and AA guns up to 155mm, they however decided to leave it in the "secondary tab" of the skill tree.

 

Also note that "Last chance" Tier 5 "Artillery" skill also affects all guns (main or secondary), torpedoes and planes(?).

 

The issue here is that instead of the skill being "bugged" to work on main guns as well, is that the "secondary guns" tab is misleading to players to think those skill are only affecting secondary guns, though one would wonder why "torpedo skill" is also in the "secondary tab" as well lol.

 

Wargaming really needs to change the names of those skill tabs......

I double checked in game, you do get +artillery stats with AFT.

It isn't problem with the ship that has high firing rate.
