Hi, firstly I apologise if this is in the wrong place, it is my first post. Secondly to be clear I don't claim to be a good or even average player I have too many ships to be able to build experience / captain skills on. I was beginning to stick with one ship, KGV but find that although i am landing plenty of hits it just isnt doing a lot of damage fast enough to make an impact. I will keep trying though. This is my first post which i feel i have to make in order to get some advice (constructive) and experience from other players.
HMS Lion......yes I know it has been done to death, forgive me its just that I cannot believe after the long grind to get her, just how terrible she is. I have Warspite, KGV, Monarch and now Lion. I hoped she would be ok for her tier but she is worse than KGV at tier VII. Her "armour" all but dissapears quite literally in a puff of smoke.
DD, CL, BB, school kid with a bb gun, all take huge chunks of HP from her after one salvo, WTF.
HE is not even KGV standard, 1 or 2 pens, a fire now and again. AP......is a joke, e.g today a broadside cruiser 12 km, results in overpens. An Amagi 10km grounded himself, almost broadside = ricochets, non penetrations, swap to HE .....2 pen 1 fire. In my albeit limited experience it is the worst ship i have played, WG need to rethink if they believe this ship is "balanced". It seems to attract enemy fire like Christmas has came early! I dont think I can face the grind to Conqueror if it is more of the same.........tell me Conqueror will kiss it all better like your granny soothing your skinned knees.....?
