Newbie questions about HE and fire
kazuru_ posted a topic in Newcomers ZoneSo... Uhm.... just a newbie questions about HE shell (sorry for that) 🙃 First, Can HE shell set fire when not penetrate armour ? Second, how fire lit in the citadel and does it cause same amount of damage on fire in superstructure ? Third, if HE shell not penetrate can it damage module ? (example : AA gun) Last, if you take IFHE is it necessary to take DemoExpert too ? Thank you
Question on Gun Penetration Values
Ryzil posted a topic in Questions and AnswersQuick question, I know that we can look up the armor of the ships, and we are given the info on over matching (hit ship with shell that can pen over 14.3 times the armor amount), but no where that I have seen states the penetration value of the ships guns. Now I was playing with someone I know that is a super tester in the game and he stated that in this game the guns penetration is based off of the caliber of the gun (diameter of the shells). It makes since and explains why the Warspite, and the Yamato are able to over match in their tier, but at the same time I'm praying that WG were not this simple minded to base the guns penetration amount off of just the caliber. So is this true, is the penetration of the guns in this game based off of the caliber size?
Shell damage currently messed up?
Kleiss posted a topic in English Speaking CommunityI'm on the asia server, and HE and AP is bouncing EVERYWHERE. Full fuso broadside on cruisers and all bounced, dealing ZERO damage. Full HE salvo using Fubuki on a Mogami's superstructure....6 hits, ZERO damage. This doesn't happen once or twice a match, it happens to about 1/3 of my salvos. Perfect shots at perfect angles, and all bounced. The last time I checked, my HE shells only "bounced" when you strike the bottom part of the hull where minimal damage is dealt to a battleship This has been going on for me ever since the new patch came out. Anyone else experiencing this too?
