HE spamming Amagi's

Me and my Div mates spotted a curious phenomenon tonight of nearly all Amagi's that we saw in both Ranked & Random were spamming HE instead of AP. Did we miss a memo somewhere where IJN BB's should stop using AP ??? For we would rather shoot AP and get 20-40k salvoes instead of getting 5-10 and maybe a fire or 2 that can be healed.

 

Anyone else notice this or is it just us ???

Better to do some damage with HE against angled ships than to bounce all your shells with AP and do no damage.

 

It's situational.

In rank, everyone is so nervous not to show boardside to you, and most of the time is durable snipe contest in long range, using AP consistently sheels ricochets all the time,  HE is the most effective in that way

All you guys are wrong. Check current mission listing for ijn ships

 

 

 

Stage 3: Set fire to ships 30 times.

 

They are trying to do it by using a BB. What a scrub...

to be fair, HE spamming.un amagi is actually very viable, you have the best throw weight of all BBs apart from montana and GK, you have.good speed to keep up with a cruiser pack, and the HE hurts like a b*#&!, not to mention all the fir dmg it does, it's just that AP is better at times

German BB's are hard to pen using AP especially if they are facing you. If the enemy team has more German BB's I would also use HE just to keep up the damage and set fires rather than get bounces every time.

Hard to pen? Are you serious? They are hard to citadel, not hard to pen. Specially not with something like Amagi. 

 

Just to clarify my point, I know HE is viable on Amagi, OP asked about the possible reason of sudden influx, and I think it is because of the mission. Remember the last time? All the cruisers shooting AP on battleships. I mean sure, that is sometimes viable, but not the norm. Same goes for Amagi. On a T10 match with bow on Montana and Yamatos, sure. on a T8 match where Bismarck gives AP damage like a cake, why HE lol.

This might be it, thanks Icy_Phoenix we just couldn't figure out why so many Amagi's were firing HE at broadside targets.

I have seen people's screenshot of Bismarck getting it.

 

Well she has worst firepower on both HE and AP but better other stats like Torp, AA, Mobility, Citadel, Side armor

Still Impossible

 

i almost got it yesterday. i'm on scharnhorst and i'm using HE against bb beyond 14km. i light up more than 10 fires. only 7k short for 50k requirements because game end too short.
