Alguém usando essa nova skill e obtendo algum resultado efetivo? (digo algo de fato apurado, e não apenas impressão)
Testei no Zao várias batalhas e fiz uma média após acertar pelo menos 100 projéteis com e 100 projéteis sem a skill e após descontar o dano de incêndio. Obtive uma média de 583 de dano por acerto sem a skill, e 658 com, resultando em apenas 13% a mais de dano na média.
Seria preciso ainda considerar o que eu supostamente teria perdido por colocar menos incêndios, mas achei isso difícil de quantificar por várias razões: Eu poderia somar o total de quantos incêndios ou o dano em cada caso , mas acho que isso não seria muito relevante pois a chance é próxima nos dois casos (20% x 17%) e no fim das contas o dano por incêndio dependerá muito mais do alvo conseguir apagá-lo ou não, bem como o uso de bandeira ou atualização preventiva de incêndio por cada alvo poderia mascarar muito resultado final.
Mas pelo menos no caso do Zao, acho que não vale a pena gastar 4 pontos pra isso e obter apenas 13% de dano a mais, e ainda sem saber de perdi alguma coisa com incêndios a menos.
Há uma boa discussão no link abaixo, mostrando que de fato os benefícios são mais sensíveis para armas de 155mm para baixo.
I just thought I'd put this up here since no other skill excepting RPF, which people will find is very useful to a limited number of ships, has generated anywhere near the same amount of attention.
Everyone's familiar with AP overmatch: which is gun caliber / 14.3, right? Well, HE overmatch is gun caliber /6, or /4 if you're a German BB. So what does this mean? Glad you asked...
It means that BB main battery HE can bow pen all other ships almost without exception. Nickolai being the exception since her belt is thick enough to be her own icebreaker.
Here are the key numbers: 100-105mm guns can pen 16mm of armor, or 26mm if German BB secondaries. 120-130mm guns can pen 20-21mm of armor, or 32mm if German BB secondaries. 150-155mm guns can pen 25mm of armor, or 37mm if German BB secondaries.
It boils down to the thickness of common armor plating (the kind you find on superstructures and non-vital parts of most ships) in the tiers your ship will be facing. At tiers 5-7, that's 19mm and 25mm for common plating. At tiers 8-10, that now includes 32-38mm and 50mm.
IFHE adds 30% to the penetration capability for HE. That means the important numbers from above change to the following:
100-105mm: 21mm, 34mm KM BB secondaries.
120-130mm: 26-27mm, 41mm for KM BB secondaries.
150-155mm: 32-33mm, 48mm for KM BB secondaries.
This matters because:
100-105mm guns can pen DDs and low-mid tier common plating, KM BB secondaries can pen nearly all common plating through tier 10.
120-130mm guns can pen common plating through tier 7. KM BB secondaries can pen USN BB deck plating through tier 10.
150-155mm guns can pen common plating through tier 10. KM BB secondaries don't change.
Note that 203-220mm guns get nothing worthwhile out of IFHE unless you really hate Montanas. 203/6=33 already. You can bow pen Yamato with HE in your CA. Not even Moskva can bow pen GK with HE and IFHE as a skill, so it's pointless.
What it all means:
Akizuki can murder DDs with IFHE
120mm and better armed DDs can directly pen common plating on most cruisers and BBs. Exceptions are: IJN casemate barbettes, deck plate on German BBs, Montana, Yamato, common plate on tier 8-10 BBs.
150mm and better armed CLs can pen all common plating. Exceptions are, again: IJN casemate barbettes, Yamato deck plate, Montana deck plate, German BB deck plate.
German BBs can exchange fire damage for direct damage from secondaries.
What it does not mean:
You can't HE citadel things. Exceptions are Tier 5 cruisers, Cleveland, Pensacola, Aoba. You need a 15" German BB for this. You might get a magic citadel or two against higher tier USN, IJN, or VMF cruiser with the 420mm guns, but if you spec IFHE in a German BB just for that, you're going to be disappointed. The vulnerability is exceptionally low.
IFHE is useful for:
USN DDs tiers 4-7.
IJN DDs tiers 5-7.
VMF DDs tiers 5-7.
KM DDs tiers 5-7, tier 8 with the 150mm guns.
USN cruisers, tiers 4-6.
VMF cruisers, tiers 6-8.
KM cruisers, tiers 5-6.
KM BBs for those players who wish to deal direct damage with secondaries.
