If you're using HE on the Colorado, then you're doing it wrong. In fact, anyone who uses HE in a BB is doing it wrong.

IKR? Everybody knows that IFHE on the Colorado is all about the secondaries. (MFCS is a must!)

Who said I was trolling? AP is what gets you citadels, and citadels are the only reason to play BBs at all. I'm cripplingly addicted to seeing big numbers pop up on screen and I think every other BB main out there is as well.

Yeah, goodluck getting citadels on bow-on battleships two tiers higher than you, destroyers, and other situations where AP is at best going to give you 10% overpen damage if not just harmlessly bounce off. The good player knows when to use which ammo, regardless of what he's driving.

Any "<insert class here> should only use <insert ammo / weapon here> ever, regardless of the circumstances" is at best weak trolling, at worst just outright stupid.

In the first case, you aim slightly higher so that the shots hit the deck armour, which is usually thinner. If not that, then you get around them so you can shoot at their broadside, or at least distract them so someone else can kill them. As for the second case, you've seen the videos of massive AP salvos on DDs, right? Finally, I'll take lots of overpens adding up to big damage as well. If the shots are bouncing, then you maneuver into a better position so that they don't bounce.

Yes, because completely changing position and flanking enemies takes less time than a reload cycle is completely safe as well ofcourse.

Oh, just 'move around' that battleship that's 10 km ahead of me?

Yes I've seen massive AP salvos on destroyers - when they're bow or stern on, When they're broadside guess what AP tends to do.

Like I said,

Use the correct ammo for the correct situation.

I am sure as others have posted that this is a troll post. But, in case a new player reads it and thinks this is a good thing...

  1. IFHE would be a waste on Colorado for the main guns due to their size. Might help secondary guns but it is a waste for the main guns. IFHE is for Cruisers and DD's with smaller guns to help them pen higher tier ships and BB's with armor their smaller guns normally can't. It is not a BB useful tool (maybe on a BRN BB?).
  2. Colorado's AP is the best load on the ship and using HE in it, except for a few rare cases, is just hurting YOU not the enemy. While you are plinking away with your HE and hoping to start a fire or two with it the enemy BB's who know what they are doing will be shooting you with AP and CHUNKING you for huge salvos. Want to do damage with Colorado? Keep AP loaded. Also, use those 4 points you wasted on IFHE for something like AFT to help your AA which is another strength of the ship.
  3. So, you see a lot of Danae's and Phoenix's in your Colorado? Unless this is through a Division snafu where the T4 is dragged up by a T5+ ship you won't be seeing them in a T7 Colorado. T4 faces T3-T5 ships only.
  4. If you haven't been able to citadel the T5+ Cruisers you list with your Colorado's AP it is your aim because all of them are citadel slot machines for a Colorado's AP. Heck they are Devastating Strike slot machines for Colorado's AP.
  5. People load AP in Colorado because they know it is the best ammo choice in 99% of circumstances. It provides the largest damage numbers consistently and also has the potential to 1 shot a lot of the ships it faces with a good hit. Guys who shoot primarily HE from Colorado, or really any non BRN BB (with a few exceptions like the Premium T4 IJN BB) are doing themselves a disservice and screwing their team.
  6. I have had single salvo's in Colorado using AP that exceed 40K.

Hopefully no one reads your post and actually thinks it is a good idea? :Smile_amazed::Smile_facepalm:

BBHE   with IFHE FTW!.         I see more HE being slung by BB  all over the tier now.    its fun and engaging.   I can't wait till I have enough point for IFHE

First two games in the King George V: Both 125k damage, multiple citadels, multiple kills, not a single round of HE sent downrange.

I actually used AP primarily in BRN BB's until I hit the KGV. Iron Duke actually has very good AP. Yes those other BB's could start a lot of fires with HE but 1 salvo of AP can do more damage than multiple fires and small damage of the HE. KGV is the 1st one where I start out with HE loaded and keep it there until a situation presents itself where the AP is useful. I pretty much get stuff burning with it and then use AP for the finish or if I get close I swap to the AP.

Obviously, HE is strong in the BRN BB's and I can see using it a lot but too many totally ignore the AP and just use HE which is stupid. Even poor AP will outperform good HE on a flat broadside ship. If I see one more BRN BB try and brawl another BB or shoot at a 6km Cruiser that is broadside using HE I will scream.

Personally I hate the gimmick of BRN BB's being HE Spam. I was so looking forward to them. BB's should primarily shoot AP and be the bully of the block with their 1 shot potential. BB's shouldn't pew-pew HE Spam from the back like a Cruiser. We have enough HE Spam from Cruisers and DD's to deal with as a BB player never mind the other BB's using it. Now we have all the people who see BRN BB's using it and think they should too in their USN, KM, and IJn BB's which is STUPID with very few exceptions.
