  1. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    the bow/stern are below the 20mm mark, but it's possible I was hitting that lower plating. changing my port now from drydock so I can see how much that belt sticks out of the water. I think you found my problem. Thank you. Yea that's it, some of my shots are hitting the Citidel Armor belt. Thank you.
  2. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    captain is Yamoto (the IJN campein guy) Priority Target, Adrenaline rush, Last Stand, Basic Fire Training, Advanced Fire Training, Radio Location. Upgrade modules are Mag Mod 1, Dam Con 1, Aiming Systems 1, Rudder shift, Concealment. Ship Upgrades are not the Torpedoes. Don't think any of that matters. Did not get any 0 damage hits this time which is weird, but all of the volleys were double click full volleys, and the damage values varied widely. HE damage is normally consistant. I'm sorry, but I have no clue how to view this to tell you how much to skip foreward. Used Akizuki vs Shchores (tier 7 Russian cruiser) 20180810_204825_PJSD108-Akizuki_00_CO_ocean.wowsreplay
  3. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    will get the replays working, and get you a video of this in action.
  4. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    There's still something funny going on with non-IFHE shells from the Akizuki at the Shchores 20 mm and the Algerie (the 22 mm small band of armor on it's side). Some shots are being blocked, some aren't. Grab a Des Moines (as a target) and shoot the same spot in the conning tower, and after the first hit, you get stable and consistent damage until the saturation caps. Shoot the Shchores in the 20 mm belt and the damage is not consistent. (the Algerie 22 mm band is very narrow, so not a good test target). Use any target with 19mm or less and the damage is consistent until saturation, but in the 20-24 mm range (found 3 possible targets, forgot what the third one was) the damage is inconsistent. IFHE damage is consistent.
  5. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    Yes, I understand Saturation Mechanics. Which ship are you using to fire the HE? It definitely has 1/4 pen when using IFHE, but I'm still very skeptical about the 1/4 pen on non-IFHE captains. It seems in line with a 1/5th boost.
  6. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    I do get sometimes penetrations against the schores, a full braod side volley can do 0-1500ish damge, which I assume is one or more shells flying high or wide and hitting the non 20mm area. HE is an absolute. if it hits an area it can pen, it does damage with no armor penetration or bounce roll. if it hits something it can't pen, it still rolls for fire, or broken modules, but does no damage. I get variable damage when fireing the Akizuki against the side of the Shchores which I believe to be shells hitting places I'm not aiming (shooting at 20mm armor area). When I used IFHE vs the Yamoto, the damage was consistant. (larger target) and not in line with what I observe (that no IFHE lets 20mm armor block HE shells).
  7. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    oh I'm using the Akizuki tier 8 ign gunboat dd.
  8. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    target the side of the Schores (tier 7 Russian Cruiser) without ifhe, it's got 20 mm armor. you have to be close, or it will sometimes hit the conning tower or other places which it can go through. check it's armor layout in armor view in port to see where it is, or simply shoot the side under the conning tower.
  9. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    Well god dam. It does have the 1/4 buff After you put IFHE on it, but not before it. I was all annoyed with spending 160ish k free commander xp for a test 10 point captain to prove you wrong, and failed.
  10. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    If I were you, I'd plop a captain in her with IFHE and get some T8+ BBs in the training room. Shoot at their bows and sterns only and see if you pen or shatter. That should definitively tell you whether or not the 100mm guns have 1/4th or 1/5th pen for the HE shells. will do that now, but I don't see the point. non IFHE values are for 1/5th, but maybe IFHE gives them a 1/4 on top of the IFHE bonus which would be a super big bug.
  11. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    I'm not advocating for the full 1/4 buff that's listed, 1/5th is plenty, I'm doing this cause the web page is wrong and people are building ships with bad captain perks using false numbers to justify it.
  12. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    run a test on it, your he without ifhe will not pen 24mm or 20mm armor (found 2 ships with 20mm armor locations, the tier 7 Russian cruiser has a larger area to hit) if you do the math that's a 1/5th pen, not the listed 1/4 which is why this is in the bug report section.
  13. BASE XP CREDIT for Legendary Modules

    If you stop and think about it, WOWS is a pay to loose not pay to win game. (Yes, there are a few exceptions, and I'm giving you the big hairy eyeball Kamakazi, but at least you're only a tier 5 ship...). If you compare premium time players who just hit tier 10 to a free player who just hit tier 10, the premium player will have easily 1000 less games played (mostly for grinding credits to fund the tier 9 grind, and for the tier 8-10 ships them selves) so is at a distinct disadvantage right there. Toss in people with less than 100 games played who buy a Tirpitz, or other premium high tier ship and you get a bunch of noobs who are simply bad players at tiers where they don't belong. I was one of those stupid noobs when I bought my Tirpitz, but I didn't buy it until I had a regular tier 9 ship so it was simply a matter of me not knowing how to BB at high tiers and I still was a completly worthless person on the team for around 100 battles.
  14. 100mm IJN HE Buff?

    Your website says this: The armor penetration capacity of Japanese 100 mm HE shells was increased from 17 mm to 25 mm. This shell is used by the main guns of Akizuki and Harekaze, and by the secondary battery guns of Ibuki, Zao, Kii, Taiho, and Hakuryu. Blah Blah Blah.... When I take it out in training and load up ships with known armor values, the shells will penetrate 19mm, but get stopped by 20mm or thicker armor. (tested vs 19mm dd hulls, 20mm tier 7 russian side cruiser hull) and the fairly common 24mm cruiser bow plating. This is consistant with getting a HE buff form 1/6th to 1/5th. ie it goes from 16.6666 (which you round to 17) to 20mm pen. Under the HE pen rules as I understand them, that 20mm pen won't pen 20mm, but will pen 19 which is what I see in training rooms when using a captain that does not have IFHE. The website numbers would be consistent with a 1/4th increase similar to the German HE bonus, but are not consistent with what I observe in game, so either the website is wrong, and it's a 1/5th increase, or a mistake was made in the code and it's supposed to be 1/4 and not 1/5th. (personally, I like it where it is at 1/5th bonus, this thing with 25 mm pen would be absolutely disgustingly op since it could IFHE to 32 and pen the bow of any BB).
  15. I've had a few occasions to bow tank fight my Des Moines vs a Worcester. (fighting nose to nose) sure he had a better rate of fire, but his AP bounced or did minimal damage while I could citadel him even with him pointing straight at me, so the actual damage being done was heavily in my favor. If you want a fire starter, go with Worcester, but know that you have armor that as far as I can tell is on par with the Dianne's armor (tier 5 British cruiser that uses it's citadel to protect it's paint job). It's hard to hit a Worcester without getting a citadel hit mixed in when using a Des Moines firing AP. A Des Moines is not super tankey either, but you can bounce shells when pointed straight at things...
