Getting too much overpens

I am at tier 8 Amagi and sometimes this starts to be ridiculous, 70% of all shots with AP is overpen, regardless of which angle, where or what ship we aim at.Damage mechanics are totally broken, and Battleships are starting to become unplayable some times. Typical shoot&pray style.

 

Any inputs guys ?

"Have you tried restarting?"

kidding aside... ofc you over pen it is a BB and you might have been landing shells on superstructure.. when it comes to cruisers and DDs you'll normally pen 1 and over pen 2-4 cuz light armored ships... then when it comes to BBs if you are over penning then you should be thankful because you might have ricochet (bounce the shells off armor)... 

be thankful for RNG cuz if you disrespect RNG it will make you bounce shells off cruisers xD

Obtain one goat.

Build a bonfire.

Wait until a full moon.

Put your mouse and keyboard at the top of the bonfire.

Light fire.

Dispatch goat while chanting to RNGesus.

Howl.

Dance around fire while chanting to RNGesus.

Repeat every month and all your overpens will become citadels.

And you can fashion your shrine to the Rolling Stones.

broadside down the turret is bad ?

View ship armor models in your port. Take some time cause there are so many of them. You can easily tell where you were shooting. If you shoot broadside but mostly overpen, you need to aim a bit lower. Try this in training room or coop.
