Die very fast? They can print a new damn ship with those heals! I've literrally burned a Conq to within less than 1k HP and 30 seconds later he had half HP. All ships and skippers should be punished for showing broadside. It's a core gameplay mechanic. Everyone worth their salt knows that. The RN BBs are an exception to that rule for the most part and it's not going to break the line to raise the citadel. You'll just have to play smarter. But I agree with the lower the fire chance and raise performance on AP. Your spot on in that regard.
