Surprised this hasn't been posted yet.

Some changes to IFHE and smoke.

Reddit:

https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/6ugxin/wows_dev_blog_in_st_ifhe_affects_detection/?ref=share&ref_source=link

NA forums:

https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/134292-even-more-info-on-the-wip-smoke-changes-ifhe-changes/

Everything in testing, so nothing confirmed, but looks like IFHE will have little chance of fires..

And bb will no longer be able to fire from smoke undetected (hope links work)

The changes look good so far.

I think 8% penalty on IFHE is a bit too much though, but individual numbers can be refined.

Overall I like the idea behind the changes.

IFHE fire reduction chance shouldnt AFFECT SECONDARIES!!! now Bismarck and GK have 0% chance of causing fire

 

dilemma.....

delete IFHE..... unreliable secondary damage

use IFHE..... no fire.....

 

WG already nerf the Bismarck secondary damage and fire chance.... what now? another secondary nerf?

it wont be happen, since manual AA is to strong. also the AP bomb only affect yolo BB like German and few BB. its only make yolo BB lazier to YOLO because AP bomb.

 

the great solution is to nerf manual AA on BB to become 25% for BB, 50% on DD, 75% on CV and still 100% on CA.

also reduce AA range in smoke only max 2km, why smoked ship can see where is the plane?

and PLEASE LOWER DAMAGE of CV TORPEDO on T4~T5 by 50% and 40%.... also reduce strafe damage and BRING BACK manual aim :V

another MM fix, there is only 1 CV for T4 and T5.... imagine 2 langley striking poor myogi, even with auto aim, its still killing it.

IMO 2/6/10 for DD/CL(CA)/BB is more reasonable, 8% is a bit too much for some CLs with low chance of fire

The new smoke change is at least better than the old idea which was pretty much the worst idea one can think of.

why BB pick IFHE? i dont think BB IFHE should be nerfed because its for SECONDARY BUILD! now they nerf more the secondary.....

Notice how this is yet another HUGE buff to Battleships.

 

Not directly, but indirectly - WG you genius-es :D

 

Instead of buffing CA, noooooo lets nerf IFHE, because too many BBabys don't like good CL rekting their precious Battleships.

I'm pretty sure you are one of the crybabies about imaginary BB crybabies. In this forum, I am yet to see BB players crying about IFHE, they have lot more HP. Cruisers are the ones who gets murdered by IFHE these days. Any player with brain targets cruisers first instead of battleships. Besides IFHE makes no sense anyway. It's a buff for every other classes that is not a CL, or some specific DDs, like Akizuki / Harekaze.  Also, I don't see any reason to buff CA right now. Most of the high tier CAs (specially TX CA) are absolutely fantastic. And the other lower tier ones are boring to play anyway. May be Notser will be disappointed (may be you too) cause he was the only one who was using IFHE with CAs. (Even more useless than Sharkbait's RDF on CAs).

With only one problem, 80% of CV playerbase is absolute garbage and they just ruin the game for the whole team. I'm all for smashing / whacking BBs, but not by promoting a class that tend to have that much garbage (and too many fishermen at high tiers).

This is actually a very good change. 
The new smoke mechanics means no more smoke-camping BBs and cruisers whacking everything in their flank without retaliation.
And the IFHE changes puts CLs back to their places, as IFHE CLs had made CA guns rather inferior.

Payfast will be hurting. You could argue that this change is intended to hit the Belfast and Kutuzov badly. Unfortunately the Perth will be hit too.
