Hey guys, As per title, I have just started playing and I have played a couple of games on a few different types of ships. Just taking my time to see what I enjoy as the majority of advice has said to do.

I like playing the UK BBs and from what I have read so far on reddit and seen on youtube guides, everyone seems to fire HE. Why do you fire HE on these ships and not AP spam like the other BB lines?

High chance on setting fire(48%-63%) iirc

And the raw penetration value

and of course, HE will always penetrate

Ok so basically I don't ever switch to AP even if I see broadside Cruisers less than 10km?

you can switch to AP

Your AP is also good 

HE is for angled target or bow on BBs

Hi Ajaxeo,

The RN BB AP is often overlooked due to the potency and ease of use of the HE shells.

The AP is very effective and should be used whenever you get presented a broadside of any cruiser or a BB of equal or lower tier.

I can not find the link however Jingles hosted a video in which the devastating effects of RN BB AP was demonstrated.

Cheers

So, AP for broadsides, HE for everything else?
