Nürnberg's Citadel is Overmatched!

Here you can see, why you eat citadels from every angle. While 14"+ guns can overmatch the citadel roof, 15"+ guns can overmatch the entire citadel. Hope they make it 30 mm to prevent this.

Nurn can take cits broadside on the tip of her bow which is crazy. Seen it a few times, could have been the game engine failing however!!

I like this ship so much but jeez that citadel and when you get to see T7/T8's on such a regular basis!

enough to make you weep but ..... at least she's not the emerald!

One more thing is they should increase the T8-9 CA mid-section armour from 25-27 mm to 30 mm so they do not get overmatched when angling properly.

Hehe would be nice if i could citadel them. Its funny basicly German Cruisers are my most play cruiser line, yet if i encounter them in any ship its basicly only overpens.

Had a game right now Bismarck and a Nürnberg tried to torprush me from behind the island (basicly the game was lost anyway thx to total moron team, who would have guessed...) 3 km full broadside... overpens next salvo overpens, i dodge his first torps, he turns oh citadel with 1k HP left because my secondaries made as much damage as my main battery :cap_haloween:Needless to say he managed to launch his other torps which i couldnt evade anymore.

One other example (german Cruiser but not Nürnberg) Hipper full broadside against my Bayern at ~10km i think oh how nice of u... 6 Overpens :cap_fainting:Straight in the belt.

Is it the game telling me " nono dont punish your fellow brethren Cruisers"...

I think that happens to every Cruiser. Ive had it happen to me aswell as i did to others. Sometimes u think ah crap he slowed down or turned but 1 shell hits the bow *Bing* Citadel. Happens to hits in the Stern aswell tho... but Bow seems more often.

Neinberg having weak armour? What else is new?

 

Excluding module placement and bow/deck/aft armour, the armour scheme is pretty accurate in this game so I do not think the ship's belt armour will be changed anytime soon. At least you can look forward to the Yorck :Smile_trollface:.

(She's not a bad ship though, but she lacks carry potential)

Yes WG, she could use a bit of armor...at least glue some cardboard on her sides so she has at least a bit of protection.

But I like my Nürnberg. But then again I'm somewhat strange person overall. But especially after the 360 turret rotation buff I've had much fun with Nürn. :)

I like it too, but you cant escape the fact its a worse Konigsberg.

 

How is it worse ? Just play B Hull, it totally rapes everything in tier 6

During my grind with her I've only experienced getting nuked twice. Never had a problem with getting up-tiered either. Honestly Yorck feels like a downgrade.

Just do this all the time and you'll be fine:

Kite like your life depends on it. Because it does.

The definition of light and heavy cruisers is based on the caliber of their guns, not on their armor.

Not true.

Though I would care more if not for the horrid matchmaking. Heck, I'd rebuy the nurnberg if it didn't get screwed by mm so hard.

MM sucks. Only 7 and 10 are playable :)

Tier 7 has lost a big part of its prefered mm for a while now. I see way more tier 9. That would be fair and lovely if the effect in tier 5/6 was more visible, which isn't.

There's probably some WG sekrit stats that'll contradict that, but whatever.

 

Only tiers that won't make you feel like toys for higher tiers are tier 4 & 10.
