So I usually wouldn't think to post anything, however It seems the higher tier English BB's Lion, Conqurer, ect.. are deleting any other BB's health and usually causing 2 fires every 30 or so seconds. I can't believe this hasn't been Nerfed? It ruins any high Tiered game where you simply burn with 2 fires the whole game in a tier9 BB, with little defense or recourse at long range. 

I'm just surprised, that the German BB's got Nerfed to death and these English ones are kept at an outrageous OP'd state. Its ruining high tier BB fights.

It's not been nerfed because it's not strictly OP. They cause a lot of fires but fires can be healed back for 100%. They farm a lot of damage, but it's not giving them more wins than the more AP focused competition. Just blindly farming damage on enemy battleships is for a large part useless damage.

I don't mind a fire here or there. Its every salvo 8-10K damage and 2 fires... so the problem is you run out of health way before you can ever get a chance to get caught back up...

And still, Conqueror is the second worst T10 battleship in terms of winrate over the past two weeks. If it's so incredibly OP, how come people aren't winning in it?

Also.. if your in a battle where you can't stealth up quick... or dd's and other boats within your detect, how do you counter this? You just burn stem to stern and die quickly..... I can't light fires as quick with anything else, and I can't do that kinda damage with the same reliability with AP with any bb... I usually play Misso, and I simply burn up and got blown away.... its not a recent thing, but it just recently got so frustrating that I'm now finding myself running away if I see an English BB.

Of course very reliant on RNG for fire starting- if the numbers are going your way, amazing, if not... last night played one game (Loss), first 20 hits, one fire....

Honestly, if anything, it's more there has always been some debate on the fact fire itself tends to seem a bit OP just because of the sheer amount of HE slung in a match. which 4 fires can eat away I think it's 86% of a BB's HP and 96% of a CV's with none of the counters. Somewhere around 30-40 if you have every single one including the one that limits it to 3 max fires. Which, much as everyone says "DCP II and repairs" only some ships have that option and they can be overwhelmed.

If you can't beat em join em grind the UK BB line. Once there you will discover the truth about UK BB's.

I think they should just make all of my ships fire proof.

I have had matches lost more times than I can count because UK BBs along HE instead of using AP. I have also won every 1v1 might I've had against a UK BB because they sling HE and I smack them with AP. Point is HE it's nice for pumping up damage numbers but it doesn't put ships down like AP does

 

Heck I had a game the other day in my Colorado where a division of 3 KGV focused on me the whole match, 2.5 million potential damage I had 2 down to half HP and one nearly dead and it cost them the match. If they used AP even with 14" guns they probably would have sank me sooner since that damage doesn't heal as well but I was healing 1/3 of my HP every time

Sure, they may be frustrating to face for most Battleships, but Cruisers and Destroyers aren't even nearly as affected.
