I guess it's not enough that the fantasy Venezia bs do 14k on my angled cruiser, but i cant even heal it fully? This is a fing joke

Primarily, it's for game balance reasons - SAP shells can't cause fire, if they were 100% healable too they'd be completely anaemic.

 

Also, logically it wouldn't make sense for  AP and HE shell penetrations to be 50% repairable, and SAP to be 100% repairable.

Now imagine trying to kill a Conqueror with Venezia as he can heal 100% of your damage every 80seconds :Smile_child:

You cant heal the HE pen fully either, only damage fully healable is fire, flood and ramming

in terms of the venezia i gotta say most of my expectations came true. that thing with sap is a beast, sap itself kinda over the top really imho. it needs time, sure. but u can't do anything about it. and quite some ships just eat dmg like dd's do from rocket planes (oopsies lol) ^^

Only on Venezia. The rest of the line deals damage so slowly like paint dries...

Brindisi is basically the same, you just have one turret less.

Well Venezia is a nice cruiser but has few issues IMHO...

 

1- you need to fire constantly, she is one of cruisers where the rudder in slot 5 is definetly a prefered choice since you cant just shoot a salvo or two to start fire then go stealth to take some respite while your fire does the job for you, when enemy is range you need to fire upon reload if you want big damage numbers meaning you are spotted all the time anyway, that brings it to:

 

2 - armor sheme is full troll, both ways, armor is completely inconsistent esp against BBs and even at (seemingly) exactly same angles, one salvo bounces off you doing almost no damage and then the next one takes 80% of your health away...

 

3 - SAP ammo has issues in consistency against many targets in many situations, to actually do some real damage you need to know everything about the ships you have your sights on and even with proper target selectiom the SAP is again full troll one salvo doing 2k and next one 20k at (again seemingly) same angle of impact

 

4 - range is mediocre, torps are underwealming (although you still tend to troll am occasional BB or cruiser and even some smoked up DDs with them) and due to slow reload she really needs Sansoneti to shine...

 

BUT

 

And its a full, whole hearted BUT

 

That ship is so god damn fun to play esp when RNGesus sais YES, all the pain and frustration is worth it for that one salvo that cuts a seemingly saturated targets HP in half or devstrikes it, or when you oneshot a DD from 15km away...

Because any shell pen is a shell pen that cannot be healed fully. What do people expect?

Not like repairing 75% of it isn't stupid enough.
