Also, I was talking about decapping when the ship was angled. Your statement is correct: when a shell is travelling into a broadside-on battleship, the shell's velocity and pressure is perpendicular to the armor, so it will punch right through. The same is true with plunging fire. But a shell that's fired at an angled battleship will most likely be decapped and then shatter on the angled belt armor of the ship.

 

 

With autobounce rules the way they are, adding the decapping plate to do exactly as you described wouldn't affect much, if anything at all. At any angle worth while Yamato's shells gain a chance to autobounce already, with a steeper angle giving a higher chance, up until 100% autobounce.

(Above stats not guaranteed accurate. I'm a supertester and test ships don't always register correctly)

Which of course means the autobounce code is, well, poorly written code.  Or to be fair, not poorly written, just lazy.  Well maybe not even lazy. WG doesn't monetize autobounce code after all. They monetize pretty shiny new ships for us to buy. 

 

Game is working as designed.

I'm talking specifically within the context of handling.  There are legitimate tradeoffs for lolpen ability even with in the performance of her main battery - fewer guns, lower broadside alpha strike, absolutely-anemic turret traverse.

 

I think the ability to completely ignore armor is an advantage that no amount of weaknesses can truly over come.  Must be how the Germans in WWII felt, or the Abrams in Desert storm....just ignore the armor and click, pen....

 

Lower broadside Alpha, except that alpha includes a citadel cuz lol pen all the armor. I think that makes up for the less guns then a Monty, its still just as many as the other T8-9s it faces...

Yammer "weaknesses" are an obfuscation not a tradeoff.

 

She easily sits comfortably at the top of the T10s - by day, week, 2weeks, All... By damage, WR, XP, KD, Srv... pffft

 

That's like saying the tradeoff for buying a Porsche 911 is that you don't get a Kia badge on your trunk.

That's why I said it's acceptable to leave her at she is, and if you read anything about what I said elsewhere, the high citadel should remain.
