So I was sailing my derpitz around today and I took a full salvo of HE from a Monty at long rangs, 16k damage, 2 fires with citadel sound. The other guy shooting at me was a Hindernberg and I was bow on to him and he was shooting AP. WTF RNG are you mad? Or was the Tirpitz missing armour true? The shells landed around rear section, where I have landed citadels on with NO and Balti before on super harsh angles. Citadelling angled Tirpitz with 203 isn't everyday things okay, you probs won't even cit South Carolina if it is angled with 203mm. And yes I was somewhat angled towards that Monty. 100& sure it was HE. I will post replay if I find it

you do know that's 12 guns right, last i did something like that with HE (no citadels) was with Izumo, and landed exactly 9 hits, 12k HE damage against another izumo. But yea, it all depends on RNG itself

I know dude, but there was heavy damage, citadel sound (I know it also applies to heavy damage but still) and for a Monty to hit 12 shells at 16km+ is a bit weird

I thought they buffed the accuracy of the monty via the equipment

Isn't the ringing sound indication of taking heavy damage in a single salvo, and not necessarily a citadel hit? You could also get that sound by taking heavy damage in a DD.

idk, all this time the ringing sound i received only caused by High "Penetrating" Damage (AP)

need someone to test it out with "Atlanta" vs a poor destroyer

Yea taking a significant percent of damage in one salve makes that sound.i think its like more than 20 - 30 % of Ships health pool.it's kinda annoying tho..

Why is a Montana BB shooting HE at another BB?

 

Muppet play in my books.

 

12 rounds of AP would have wiped you out.

You're kidding, right?

 

If a battleship's bow is facing you, your AP shots generally will not penetrate the ship enough to cause serious damage. In such cases, HE is preferable, but then it simply becomes a matter of timing your salvoes so that when you have AP loaded, the enemy is perpendicular to your guns, and HE if parallel to your guns.

Which you'll never get a proper sense of playing PVE.

I didn't know that all ships YOLOing to the middle of the map and ramming each other to death allowed you to develop that.

The sound will be changed to a hollow one (imagine suddenly being thrown into a soundless void for a few seconds) in the next patch

LOL thats funny.

 

HE has its uses, even in a BB. Yesterday in ranked I was in a lolorado. I saw tinker_poi in his nagato 15km out. Already used his repair. I fired off a HE salvo at him. Light 2 fires, CA's kept going. Another 1 fire.

 

Before you know it, half his HP is gone and still burning for 3 fires. A DD smokes him, but too late, he burnt to the ground.

 

Ask me why I had HE loaded, He was angled. I knew to load it in advance and wait for his repair. When I know it was used, I fired, at 30% chance of fire, and hitting around 4-8 shells you have a good chance to stack a DOT on him. It worked.

 

So never underestimate HE =D.

Of course, I have done 16k damage HE salvo in ranked with Fuso before on enemy Colorado. But that Monty fired HE the whole damn match, every single salvo

well maybe since Monty has 12 shells I should just use HE if there isn't much CA in the match (once I get Monty) and swap to AP after I get within 12km of BB so I can actually pen them no matter what (especially yammy)
