i'm on T5 now and still get fire everytime :sceptic:

 

You are meant to get fire. I do get fire a lot in my Warspite. But you have that useful thing call healing consumables. You suck some of the damage, and repair / extinguish the fires when you feel safe. Then you heal.

 

I had a match where i was under fire the whole time because i was soloing on a section without any team mates. The stupid cruisers kept shooting their HE shells at me and i was burning half the time. But i persevered and stayed afloat longer because i used my repair sparingly and heal whenever i can. In the whole they did around 65k damage at me, 15% more than my HP.

 

Buy a module that reduce fire damage, use the signal flag that reduce fire damage, use the commander skill that reduce fire damage if those fire damage irks you so much.

Devs just posted this on the RU forum - average damage for fires and flooding for all battleship tiers through the month of July. Forum isn't letting me embed the image for some reason.

US BB? Try using your range to outgun the cleansing fire pesky HE spam of cruisers. Fire control modification 1 is essential and mandatory to remain competitive against IJN BBs.

Of course, the moment you do anything sensible like that you'll get abused for being a n00b because you're not getting up close and personal.

The point of that big armour is so that the actual HE shell does no (or very little) damage, which is what happens after the CL/CA or DD has hit all of your superstructure already and you are still alive.

 

Wait untill you start playing t8+ BB's and you will see very clearly why fires are needed so that you arn't a 100% invincible bathtub of destruction.

 

Should probably remind you to also put on damage control mod and spec into fire prevention and survivability (it's only 3 points dude..).

Interesting. Shame our own community managers/admin don't immediately make this stuff available.

 

The first question that occurs to me is what % value do the devs consider as their target. Do they think current values are too low, high, or reasonable?

They think the current fire damage percentages are working just fine at the lower tiers. Past tier VII, they aren't commenting as there aren't sufficient people up there yet.

Nope, My opinion T5 is much much worse for BBs, you meet Clevelands every game.
