Who nerfed my Aoba?

I hadn't played Aoba in some time, took her out recently and was stunned by the slow reload and glacial turret traverse. I could feel the nerf even though I have no recollection of the change.

Aoba once had 10s reload. It's now 11s. 10% DPM nerf on a ship that pretty much exists for its DPM. Can't be positive about the traverse speeds, but even with EM they feel far worse than I remember.

Would someone please paste the details of the relevant changes made to the IJN CA line?

To me Aoba has always been sucky. Last played it 4 years ago. Have not bought it back. Probably what haa happened is you have experienced better ships and now realised how bad the deficits really are.

The only two I remember on top of my head are: turret traverse speed buff and dispersion/accuracy buff for IJN CAs.

Seems likely. Aoba suffers a lot from Russian BB introduction. Definitely Meh now, even with the great dispersion.

Aoba suffered a lot even before the soviet bb introduction. Short range, poor reload, and if I remember properly, poor traverse. The american counterpart at the time, cleveland was superior. The only thing you had going was torpeodes. You were a terrible dd hunter because of the lack of RoF which then turned you into enemy #1 for BBs, your armour was like "wat arma"? I guess you did have speed going for it... Nowadays you 'feel better" because RN CA and Pasta cruisers have even worse reload. At least I think RN CA does. I could be wrong because I don't bother to read the exact numbers.
