Fiji is a T7 tech tree ship... It's not like it's hard to get or something.

If you want a Fiji, why not just buy it? It is there in the tech tree easily accessible for everyone...

And it is more of a case of a little bit of historical accuracy than intended as a buff, I believe. There are few guns it makes a difference against, mostly German 150 mm and Mogami 155 mm with IFHE and the 51 mm covers a relatively small part of the ship.

Thats actually a nerf.

It doesnt gain anything from that, because nothing can overmatch 38mm in the first place. Even for HE shells, it doesnt actually matter, because that area is pretty small, and actually ontop of the ship (plunging fire? nah, doesnt exist anyway)

So what does it do?

It will actually arm AP bombs from CVs now! Edinburgh has the same 51mm armor in the midsection, and it does arm AP bombs. 38mm does not, atleast so i heard.

It is only the small part of the deck (Auxiliary Room Armour) and going from 38mm to 51mm is this case is not a big deal actually.

It is a Tech Tree ship. How about you actually put some effort and grind it yourself instead of asking WG to do your job.

Yep.

Poor CV players, WG had to help them somehow (nerfing AA into the ground, commander skill rework was not enough obviously) and ensuring that AP bombs arm is a step in the right direction.

And lets ignore the fact that citadels were previously possible anyway, because F*** surface ships.

 

It also sends a clear message to the few morons who live in the past and still play surface ships: F*** you and just dodge!

 

 

In regards to OPs desire to get Fiji:

 

Grind it, or flash your credit card, buy Dubloons, exchange Xp for FXP, buy Fiji. The way WG intended the whole "grinding" thing in the first place.

I can basicly see what happened there:

One of those CV lovers in WG HQ, fapping on surface plebs with his CV. Then he drops a Fiji with AP bombs and gets overpens. Starts sobbing like a little baby, dropping into fetal position. Someone from balancing tells him, the deck armor is not thick enough to arm AP bombs. CV baby then starts demanding to increase fiji deck armor - and here we are :cap_fainting:

Sounds quite plausible ...

Armour buffs are deceiving.

They can turn overpens into pens.

There was never much risk of overpens on RN light cruisers, those things eat citadels for breakfast, lunch and dinner :P. Except for CV AP bombs.

 

And now even that bug has been corrected.

Fiji is my favourite ship - it didn't need a 'buff' and certainly not this one - still worried about the Commander Rework's effect on RN light cruisers though.

I love my fiji now I'm just CV fodder, unbelievable how anyone could think this was a buff.

 

Don't worry, it is gonna happen to your favourite ships as well, CV's are money makers for WG, newer players love them because all of a sudden they are at back, taking no damage and they can wreak havoc, even without hitting a thing.

 

I'm also a newer player and think they are OP as well, I thought this game was about naval warfare.

Learn game mechanics, this is a nerf, not a buff, 51mm wont stop anything, what it will do is make more AP and bombs arm. In much thesame way smolensk had its armor thickened to nerf it.

I'd like to point out we've not seen Russian/Soviet CVs yet - given what WG have done to the BBs and CAs it's up to your imagination how powerful these 'paper ships' will be - probably CVs from the 1980s with Jets, guided missiles etc

It certainly has no meaning in fighting other ships - literally doesnt do anything.

So, i guess that can be answered with: yes.

IMO, it is actually just a fixing mistake and bringing the deck armour on its historical value, as deck armour was 2 inch thick. I doubt it is intended as CV buff because, if I'm not wrong, even 38mm was already enough to arm T6 and T8 AP bombs. The only part of the Fiji deck that could arm AP bombs, would still be able to arm AP bombs. Only significant difference is that this part of the deck will no longer be pen by German 150mm guns but as this is really a small part of the deck and ship overall it will have minimal effect on anything.
