 Its getting ridiculous how much HE is being spammed left and right... They need to do something to promote the use of AP again. I vote for huge HE nerfs but I know thats not popular. Anyone got any ideas?

Well all you can do is run the appropriate flags and a step further run a fire, survivability captain build on your bbs.  Other than that what can your really do until the fire mechanic itself is changed.  However in most situations let em farm fire on you while you wreck them with AP.  Good luck out there friend.

HE nerfs? No thanks.

And as Long as the philosophy for Battleships (exception being RN) is to spam AP at literally everything that moves, I see no reason to change anything about HE on Cruisers or Destroyers.

Battleships can continue spamming HE, please. I'd rather take a salvo of that and get set on fire then eat their AP and a handful of citadels.

They just reduced the fire duration time on DDs and cruisers.  Battleships can still run flags and captain skills to reduce fire damage as well.

 

I don't see any issue here.

Show us your broadside and we will talk about shooting AP on your ship.

The problem is the terrible skill level of the player base. 

 

AP is a good ammo, but you need skill to aim and hit the right place of the enemy ship. While HE you just need to hit the enemy ship (plus a possible fire). 

 

Yesterday in a game there was a Nagato spamming HE all the game, one guy asked hum why he was using HE and not AP and he said "because AP dont deal damage". We were like, WUT??? Nagato has some of the best AP in the game.

Every time I see a thread like this, I cringe for fear that WG will add premium ammo...

Ever heard of a tank build? Gire Prevention, perhaps?

While we're at it, let's do something about torpedoes...they make holes in my hull...  We have to do something about HE shells...they burn my beautiful paint job...  We have to do something about BBs AP shells that delete that poor T8 cruiser 3/4s the way across the map in one volley??  Heck no! Keep that!!  I like that!!!  Now back to me & my battleship...  Stop shooting from inside the smoke, I don't like that, I can't see you...  And those wee little boats...what are they called...destroyers...yeah those...make them visible from beyond their torpedo range.  Heck, get rid of their torpedoes and give them only AP shells...

Let's pray we never see that day.

 

If it ever came to fruition, I would stop playing this game, without hesitation.

What would help is for WG to stop penalizing the switching of amunition types.

 

Make it so switching amunition types doesn't force all your turrets to reload if you happen to fire one turret. Have those turrets finish loading whatever was selected when they started, then switch once they fire. Only pressing 1 or 2 twice should force a reload.

Shhh! Don't use that phrase. It's like calling a demon by name. It will come.

That right there, if it happens, will make we walk from this game and never look back - no matter the money I've spent...

Yes, let’s make it so ships with subpar guns have no chance against well armored battleships. Brilliant. You can already heal through most fire and HE damage. I would suggest not pushing into masses of rapid firing enemy guns, so that you can mitigate the damage more effectively.

So, a little memo to those players like the OP who clearly don't have much experience in the game....

 

HE is the ammo the vast majority of ships in the game are designed to use. Only Battleships regularly get advantage by using only AP the entire battle, while Cruisers and Destroyers must use HE for most of their engagements to have any effective use of their guns.

 

Trying to complain that ships are using the expected default ammo for their guns is rather....ignorant of the facts.

 

If course, if the Devs change the game so that any gun on any ship can fire AP rounds and citadel any other ship in the vast majority of situations, the OP and others complaining about HE being used more than AP will have their wishes granted. Let the detonations flow...

By all means, continue to give me damage I can fully heal.

Not really, AP is a amazing ammo for DDs anc cruisers. A cruiser can take half HP or even one shoot a enemy cruiser with AP, also you can deal 10k salvos of AP against BBs. A DD can cit some cruisers with AP and DD AP is really good since many DDs cant pen BB armor with HE. 

 

Most players dont realize how powerfull cruiser and DD AP is and just spam HE.
