this is beyond a joke it is rare to see people fire AP on the server either nerf he or reduce the time it takes to put out fires so fare in the last 3 battles i have been set on fire 87 times in my Battleships........ and you cant tell me that its my fault that everyone fires nothing but he

Err what do you expect? You expect a cruiser to fire AP at you while you're angled? (Well I do but my Des Moines has lolpen shells so)

If you are BB expect HE. End of story

it is stupid that it takes so long to put out a fire when everyone is firing HE somthing needs to be done about it but we all know wargaming hates bb players 

 

Buy premium repair for 22500 silver. Reduces it to 1 minute. Buy Extra Heal in BB, gives for 22500 silver, gives an extra heal, reduces the cooldown to 1 minute. Take SI skill for 1 extra heal.

HE spam hardly a problem. if you are getting focus fire by HE then it means you are out of position. you should have your cruiser escort protecting your flank your front to protect you from HE spammers like gunboat and other cruisers.

 

if HE spammers are your problem get basic or survivability, damage control 2 and fireproof flag to bring down those fire to 30s.

don't forget that dreadnought flag for extra repair and premium damage repair. also there's -5% consumable CD flag too.

 

i always thanks those HE spammers because when i survive at the end of the game i always get fireproof and dreadnought achievement.:medal:

HE spam? Fire damage can be recovered 100%.  Plus BBs can kill HE spammers quite reliably.   Don't see a problem after 3000+ games (800+ as a BB player)

its obvious people will fire HE on a battleships even AP on a broadside battleship isn't going to pen most of the time or it's just my rng so burning you is much easier than trying to git close for those citadels

How else would you prefer cruisers to kill BBs then? If you're getting focus fired with HE the you are getting too close/ your team is not giving you enough support.

maybe you should stop being forum do goodies and play the bloody game 14 times i was set on fire by to aobas it is getting beyond a joke and it needs to be fixed

F7 / F8 and run! 203mm HE set fires (relatively) easily. The larger the gun caliber, the more the HE is gonna hurt. That's why up at the Myoko there's the kind of players who play cheeky and HE spam exclusively while running away and dropping some torps so you don't chase them XD

look, in this month i play mostly battleship, i'm grinding my German BB line with my USN and play scharnhorst too. fires are my less worry because they can be avoided and repaired. also battleship can deal with cruiser faster than cruiser burn battleship. it only takes few salvo and the cruiser is dead.

 

if you hate HE spammers then why not deal with them first?, then you can deal with heavier ship later.

I presumed looking from the stats that OP are using KM BBs mainly Scharnhorst and Derpitz, German BB do have a tenancy to get fire quite easily compared to other nations BBs.

 

Well, do you expect CA or even other BB to try and lolpenned your turtle back amour with AP while angled?

So, would one rather that I use my HE spammer to burn BBs down, or get close (and I can if terrain allows) to 10-12 km to shoot BB broadsides with AP for 10+k a salvo?

 

Most people spam HE since it is a reliable way to get damage.  I think OP needs to play more games in BBs.  Use premium repair and dreadnaught flag (since you get one everyday anyway), then make your presence known to the enemy team and tank damage for your team to win.  BBs are easier to carry than cruisers.

 

HE spam will always be there, learn to play with the team.

I do admit, the recent ARP mission really increase the number of HE spammer, I mean, even BBs are using HE now

 

I in Dunkek, I see angled BB, I shoot HE.  Glorious dispersion and fire chance :trollface:

lol stop burning your damage control after you got set on fire mate

 

If you don't know how to use quote bubbles on the forum I'm going to assume you don't know how to avoid HE spam either.

judging by that statement, i guess you haven't seen zao's fire chance/Tier10 battle. Maybe you're the one that needs to play more or reach tier 10 to understand the true definition of HE Spam. You either git gud or stop playing this game if its not realistic for you, there are other games that suit your taste of realism.

so bro....are you advocating for BB players to stay at the back and snipe at range? :trollface:

 

snipe only if you are good enough lol, kill HE spammer first. Or this guy could improve his aim, since the HE spammers all have large cits
