Quick one - is there a problem with it at the mo? I''m not good, but seems DM is getting VERY poor results - plenty of hits seen, but few registered. 8 salvos at t8DD, none registered.....

 

As above, I know I'm not good, but I definately saw hits, nothing registered...............

And still not a single replay?

 

Edit: desync could cause this but then I would expect more people complaining about it.

Lag? Sometimes the visuals are out of sync with the hitboxes. Also, different but may be related, I keep getting this weird bug (all ships) where it says I got a normal penetration but no damage is recorded, or it says I got an overpenetration but the damage comes up a few thousand (normal pen damage).

 

Nothing wrong with DM specifically. It could even be catastrophically bad luck with dispersion, all shots just a little short or long.

Aye, possibly. It was a thought too. Thanks. :)

You did only a few battles in Balti (15) and used free XP do get Des ? Here lies a problem. Anyway Balti/Des bad arcs + very fast speed of many high tier DD is making very hard to hit reliably DD >10 km. Hitting ex. competent SU spammer on 12 km is often almost impossible.

 

After 120 played games in Balti I am close to Des and targetting is much easier for me now. Simply you need to play more and experience will do the rest. Belive me - this boat should be fine then, but she is not an easy ship to play anyway.

Well, I've changed captain skills a little and gone for IFHE so taht if I need to go HE vs DDs, I can hit harder. Also should work against angled BBs.

 

However, it's definately not the ship, it's definately the player - me. Starting to use teh map better (I'm a slow learner!) and it's now not the shooting, it's the whole game play. Do I push a little,. or sit with BBs to support at first? I know I should be bow on too, and the new armour should mean I've more resistance at range....... What sort of range should AP be used too, please?

Thanks for teh reply :)

IFHE is useless on 203.

You will not do more damage with it against DDs and angled BB : HE doesn't care about angle. 

IFHE improves HE penetration. 203mm already have more than 32mm HE penetration,which means you penetrate all DDs, all cruisers through the bow (25mm armor) and all BB through the bow and upper belt (32mm armor) excepted the belt of german and US battleships which is either 37mm or more than 50.

IFHE is clerly not interesting on 203s. It could be for the French Henri IV or 150-180mm, but that's all.

Invest points instead in CE, AFT, AR, EM, DE...

O bugger. Thanks for the heads up - I didn't realise that. I've got CE already - to me a must on higher tier CAs.

 

Again, thanks :)
