Taiho : u wot????????????????????

DB & TB good, Fighters worthless compared to USN, which considering that most Essex players use Air superiority builds makes Taiho a lot less effective without heavy ally AA.

 

Concerning Ibuki, I found her best chance is to either stealth fire by hiding in friendly DD smoke or firing backwards using IFHE. She just can't take hits like the other tier IX cruisers.

I wouldn't say Fuso, Nagato, Minekaze, Kamikaze R ..(insert other good IJN ships).. or Furutaka are inferior. Don't know about the Ibuki personally as I don't have it.

Strange.....  Ibuki is ok on my play style.

Concealment build, Firing discipline (hit & run), 17km range (stock at the moment), exploit if I find the situation favorable to me, etc.

It was the only way I could fight, as my ability to do any damage was pretty much nil. RNG was never in my favour for setting fires, even with all the flags and IFHE turned off, so I used IFHE to piss off De Moines and Benson's, never went near any BB's.

Well, my AP shells bounced off everything I targeted and my HE shells never set fires, so I basically never did any damage, I started using IFHE and I managed to do something to other cruisers.

At least your bad luck with RNG got you flags, mine just left my Ibuki useless.

In the end I ended up Free XPing to Zao.

IFHE increase penetration, not damage. And given the calculations of the game, IFHE doesn't really bring any more areas you can pen for 203mm guns other than the Montana's deck and 1 more boat I think. Go switch to Demolition expert, you're not getting the game mechanics right bro

Penetrates NC/Iowa/Missouri/Montana deck for high tiers, IIRC also works for Kongo and Fuso in low/mid tiers. IMO not worth it unless for total USN BB haters.

You know what, [content removed], I try my best to play this game but every time I try either people like you scream that I 'm a worthless pile of shit that should just die or team killers that happily kill me telling me I'm a noob or the fact that WG can't even fix their miserable servers so that on the rare chance that I get in a game I'm kicked within 5 minutes, so you and everyone else in this hateful and downright toxic game can just leave me alone.

I am so sick of the elitist garbage in this forum telling me that I 'm worthless, what makes you so great, the fact that you don't have a job and leach off society while I have to read report after report of children and teenagers that have been murdered or sexually abused. I come here to get away from my real life but every time this place just drags me back down into depression and hatred.

Look here, no one is calling you useless.We are saying that the skill you picked is useless and switching to something else would be much more beneficial.
