SO a shell that was rarely used at Tier 1 was removed....

 

My Erie is going to enjoy the lack of seal clubbing competitors :izmena:

I always used AP on Orlan, cause that eats all the other T1s alive. But, I have tested in PTS, the HE can citadel all the others too. And since all of them got nerfed(!) I think this is still fair.

The only issue I see with this is it doesn't allow players to learn the use of AP. This will further exacerbate the dependency on HE rather using AP when it is appropriate.

Wonder why WG did that... i mean AP is the great opportunities for new player to learn the mechanics of the game...

The only people that will be affected by this are sealclubbers.

 

lol that's what everyone thinks!  

Only tier 1s (cool no more Dresden's and Emden's raining fire down on me).

15 point captain with AFT - check.

Longest range for tier - check

 

got my club ready ;)

LOL! To bad we don't have the population count to just stick the new players in the T1 by themselves,and let the more experienced players club each other!

Well

They did normalized the AP

Which make further HE spamming more reliable

What we will end up with is more people in Montanas spamming HE at everyone as in the last tier X match I was in. Not just 1, 2 of them were spamming HE at max range. Yeah...this game is as screwed up as it gets now with HE being the only round to use...guess one doesn't need to worry about developing the skills to put a round where it counts. Just spam HE hope it hits, and have a fire. WG devs and their development mentality for this game astounds.

Well you would expect that people wouldve learnt something within the vast timeframe needed to reach T10 from T1. Heh heh... you would...

There's a big number of people who only played cruisers cause they are much easier to play (playing for the sake of playing that is, not having any impact on game is none of their concern) earned a lot of free exp to jump to Iowa or Montana. Guess what they do? Still shoot HE.

Not quite

The other reason is the frustation when facing angling enemy ships especially that excel at it like Izumo, Tirpitz and Moskva

Making HE spamming more reliable

Im pretty sure you don't shoot HE at angled Tirpitz, you just hit her superstructure with AP. I think it is the bow on Yamatos that causes trouble. But I am talking about matches where they do that even when they are top tier.
