Has anyone else found these to be the absolute worst tier 10 BB guns? Or am I in a minority? Jeez talk about complete useless garbage guns. Made the mistake of hitting a flat broadside NC with AP at 10KM the results were pretty rage inducing. 7 of 8 hits for no damage aiming for the NC sweet spot. Back to 419's and never looking back.

Use HE with the 457s. Problem solved.

^ This.

 

419's with HE also work well :cap_rambo:

Dont bother..sure they say 61% fire chance but that's if you even hit anything. Think I went about 15 games with them and started maybe 4 fires in total. Went back to the 419's and average 7 to 10 fires a game. With these guns shes more like a Mega Lion.

Are there any ships that have an option between more guns or bigger guns, where they larger, slower guns have an advantage?  ROF/shell output is king.

I personally like the bigger guns on my GK better than the smaller guns.

This is particularly true when you're spamming HE, since it's less about penetration and alpha and more about ROF and maximizing your chances of getting more hits and starting more fires.

The 457s on the Conqueror are actually fine. They have roughly the same firestarting potential as the 419s, but significantly lower DPM (worst at T10).

 

Which is.. fine.

I am 30k from the Conq but with the Lion I found using HE vs BBs and AP vs cruisers is the way to go with 419s due to the RN AP fuses you get less over pens on the thinner armor. Going to assume the 457s will be the same way.

Straight up, 4 guns on the bow is not acceptable at tier X. Especially when they aren't even as good as Yamato's 6 gun bow.
