With the next update coming, supposedly launching changes to IFHE, which will affect certain ships dramatically, will there be a period given to us Capts. the chance to change our Capt. build, free of charge?

And what is the change, now?

 

Last I heard, they reverted on the -8% fire chance that was initially being tested and IFHE is back to what it was before.

Why?

As they are testing right now:

Quote

We changed the rate of this Skill to increase its value for ships with small-caliber guns. Now Ships with armament up to 139mm will have -1% to the chance of being set on fire, and ships with gun calibers higher than 139mm will have a -3% chance, as it originally was.

Ships above 139mm are unchanged, and below are buffed.

Why would they reset your captain for this?

Just curious. I can imagine players have set their Capt's build to adjust to the current IFHE and with any change which may occur, player's may think twice about what they have chosen, like FP and DE. Even with the changes to smoke, Radio Location seems like it may not be worth the 4 points.

If you want to reshuffle a captain, it's discounted this weekend.

All I need to do is switch DE from Akizuki to BFT and I am good.

There is no reason to change a captain currently built for IFHE, and I doubt many DD drivers, aside from possibly the RU line, that would change theirs, either. There's no need for WG to do any grace period discounts for this.

What sorts of ships use IFHE?  Most of the time it doesn't seem to come recommended, especially given the cost.

Only real ships that benefit from it are 152 and 155mm guns. Smaller guns can benefit up to a point but after tier 7 for DD guns, its a waste.

 

But it's a nice buff to Atlanta and Flint since they have DD caliber guns.

Not actually a buff but instead a smaller debuff which is a gain for them.

Akizuki needs IFHE to deal direct damage to basically anything.

 

I'll be keeping DE on mine though

Light cruisers:  Ships with main guns under 155mm.

Well, this explains why we're getting a discount on the cost to change Capt's build.

Good one WG. "We'll sucker them in and then change the effectiveness of a Captain. Players will then feel the necessity to change the build, which costs doubloons, which they will have to buy if they haven't enough" 

Sounds something like MS did when Gates made a promise, "Once you buy Office, you will never need to buy it again" :Smile_smile:

Quote: Whether or not you can install your existing Office on the new computer or laptop will depend upon the type of installation that you have.  If the software came already installed on that computer, it is quite likely the OEM version is only licensed for use on that particular computer.  On the other hand, if you purchased it as a separate item, even if it was at the same time as you purchased your computer, and you have the installation media and the Product Key, then you are free to install it on the new computer.

"Good Luck"

Maybe I should try it out on my Cleveland... but I do love starting fires...

I use it on Atlanta, Cleveland, Emile Bertin, De Grasse, Phoenix, and Kutuzov. Works pretty good on them.

I dont see why OP. If the changes come the way they are its not changing nothing to cruisers and its a buff to DDs. They would only give you the four cpt points if It was a nerf.

Yeah it cuts down slightly but say goodbye to shattered shells. That's where you notice the big difference. Shatters become pens with a slight fire reduction.

I thought I knew what IFHE was...  but after reading a few posts, I figure I woke up in the Twilight Zone...

Question #1:  What does IFHE have to do with the shooting ship catching on fire??  I used to think, and still think --  NOTHING.

Question #2:  What exactly is being changed?  Specific, like Fire Chance reduced from -3% to -1% for below 140mm.  Right?

Question #3:  Is the PENETRATION factor of IFHE being changed?  I read NO.

Question #4:  I already have IFHE and DE set up on all those < 140mm ships.  Why would I want to change this?
