Cleveland Citadel Area?

I just had a game where I ended up in close quarters battle with a Cleveland (while also in a Cleveland). I couldn't get a citadel hit despite the close range and recalled a couple of days ago that someone mentioned in an in game chat that the Cleveland had a weird citadel placement. In the end, we destroyed each other, but for future games, where is the citadel area(s) on a Cleveland. I checked Youtube but came up empty.

 

If anyone can enlighten me or link me to somewhere else where this is shown, it would be much appreciated. Thanks guys! :honoring:

 

Oh, and sorry mods if I've posted this in the wrong area.

It's slightly in front of the 1st smokestack, and about under the 2nd smokestack.

The Cleveland and Baltimore has ridiculously small citadel area, it's difficult to kill that thing.

 

Oh btw, this might just be my opinion but Cruisers with guns smaller than 200mm tend not get citadel-ed as much being hit at magazines. Just aim for their boiler rooms at middle of ship instead.

I not sure but I saw somewhere that Cleveland Citadel split in to 2 part right at the water line ... one below and little in front of front smoke pipe and another one below and little behind rear smoke pipe

Yup, it's still ridiculously smaller than most Heavy Cruisers though, and somehow this ship also gets amazing FP and AA at such low tier that even shell trajectory nerf isn't enough to make it balanced. :hiding:

Wow...Righto, I was aiming sorta in the right areas, but maybe not low enough. I did take out one of his turrets, but as I mentioned in the original post, we killed each other off so I wasn't efficient enough.

 

Again, thanks folks!

I mostly give up to use AP's Cruiser when against Cleveland ... Just spam HE instead cas it hard to do citadel hit ... except you got clear shot ... I just use HE to destroy most of it component ...

And with new patch it seem the Cleveland Gun ar more easy to get destroyed .... I have cleveland too and one match the other cruiser knock out my 3 out of 4 turrent ... there goes shell spamer title for cleveland LOL

The thing is "when". Probably 2017 or late 2016.

 

I DONT CARE

That ship is utterly OP, Small citadel, bigger hp pool than her counterpart, Flamewerfer, extremely long range, Great RoF

Edit: forget to mention her AA

The infamous cheatland can be trolling sometimes. 

Believe or not, this screenshot was taken right after i took a torpedo hit. And it did less than 500 damage to me.

Torpedo bombers from the Hiryu. Even the guy next to me, the New York was like: "What the hell?"

Perhaps it's like WoT, the only game I've ever played where "critical hit" is something you do NOT want to do to the enemy? So you took module damage which means you didn't take health damage?

 

Dumbest system ever. Module damage should be ON TOP of health damage, which is why it's "critical".

 

Of course it could just be aliens, or reasons.

You sure it was a torpedo hit?

 

It could be that the torp failed to arm and the dive bomb HE bomb just missed you but did splash damage.

(Cause in that SS I can see the DB together with the TB flying away)

 

This is what I assume based on that screenshot and positioning of ships. (A replay would be better).

TB's target was the BB next to you (New York?)

TB drops the Torps using auto aim, and you were between the TB and the New York, thus the torpedo from the TB failed to arm in time and hit you.

At the same time DB was attacking you and missed, but the resulting splash damage caused module damage to your ship.

Curse you Syanda!!! It's nothing offensive saying "Merica **** yeah!" It's the name of a song! A well-known song in the US!

Haha .. I have same feeling too ... it not much as in WoT since Critical hit are more clearly do something ...and you not shot only 1 shells but around 10 or more ...

In WoT the Criticals hit are almost feel bad as a miss shot ... you aim right at the weak point of the armor and Bam! criticals hit 0 damage ... Goshhhh
