Does anyone know if WoW is planning on giving the Des Moines better armour than it has. Ive been ridiculed for sitting behind islands doing my thing trying not to get wiped out right away, saying I was playing like a coward. meanwhile having 275 hits and over 100k damage. It would be nice to play that ship without always having to hide or run because of the big citadel and weak bow, aft and side armour.

F--k all those other guys whining about you behind an island.  IMO, as long as you are hitting and dealing damage, they can go eat a d**k.  However, you also do need to know when it's time to bring DM to use her Radar, AA at the right time.

 

DM trying to trade shots at open water is a salvo away from getting instantly deleted.

Food for thought: his average damage in the DM is 46k - across 355 battles.

 

OP, I suggest you consider why people keep telling you to move up.  Because whatever you're doing isn't working for you.

It's still terrible.  I feel safer in Baltimore than I do Des Moines.

Yeah the Des Moines armor layout in game makes her squishier in-game than the Baltimore. From what I can tell this change was based off the USN BBs and their above water citadels, where the critical internal parts of the ship are still located below the waterline they just raised the citadel to increase its buoyancy in case part of the citadel ever got flooded. I doubt WG will want to rework her Armor layout like they did for the USN BBs,

 

The thing is I feel instead of the armor, WG should buff her concealment by reducing the ship detection range to around 13 km. She'll still have worse concealment than the Zao, but you'll be better able to re-position, pick your engagements and strike at close range.

only a deck armor buff to 30mm, from front turret to aft turret.

That means the armor is only effective at long range and is entirely useless up close.

The side armor above the hull needs to be 30mm.

 

I've said it a dozen times since they did it and I'll keep saying it;

 

Des Moines did not need the reload buff. What she needs is to have the same 30mm of armor above the belt that every tier X cruiser excluding Minotaur has. That way her hull can't be lolpenned by 16" and 16.5" AP.
