How to kill Conqueror?

I've hit them showing flat broadsides with my Montana numerous times, from 15km, from 11km , even from 8km. Rare to do more than 4-5k damage. A USN or IJN BB would be dead; a KM BB would lose 20-40K easy. Is this RNG trolling me? I've aimed at the waterline? No cits. I've aimed higher, as if it was a KM BB -  not much better. Should I just chip away at the superstructure? Meanwhile they do 10-20k HE volleys from any angle and start two fires.

 

Is there a trick? Just seems like a waste of shots even firing at them at the moment.

A conqueror walks into a bar. There is no counter.

I read that from somewhere a while ago. Props to whoever said that.

 

Jokes aside, I'd say go with the burning. The Conqueror's armour can be a little finnicky at times, depends whether you get lucky. After all, dispersion is RNG based so... kinda expected ya?

(Or you can try aiming for the conning tower? Might get some good damage with regular AP pen)

The anti-UK BB gameplay seems to be largely invariant up through the tiers: Avoid a frontal BB vs. BB engagement. Swarm them with the help of smaller ships, get your CV to do the dirty work, or run away while dropping shells on them at max range in the hope they'll get bored and head somewhere else.

You have the so-called newbie & useless team that most people have been complaining about, right?

 

Point & aim at the enemy Conqueror, then press F3 button. Press multiple times in between 10 or 15 seconds to get better result. :Smile-_tongue:

Your best chance of killing a Conqueror is to hope that the internet connection of the Conqueror player inexplicably disconnects, then kill it for easy damage. 

 

Otherwise, it is unbeatable.

Conq has pretty weak DP mount, I doubt manual AA would help her much anyway.

I thought GK is un-citadel-able Conq didn't tough than whoever

There's a sweet spot between the X & Y turrets on Ge.K. You just have to hit it right.
