Just 55 hits so one fire is below average but not THAT unusual, especially if you were up-tiered in your match as T9 and T10 fire resistance coefficients are pretty high.  Other considerations would be if your captain did not have DE and/or you were not running any fire boosting signals.  Of course, there is always old fashioned RNG to thank as well. 

One for 55 happens in the Mogami, but I have also had some incredible fire starting matches as well.  Don't give up on it.

That's the nature of Fires-based ships.  Sometimes you're setting a dozen+ fires.  Sometimes you're setting maybe 3.

The inertia fuse shells reduce starting fires by 5% I believe.  A signal flag will offset part of that.  I just acquired Mogami myself and it has been one of the more entertaining ships I own.  155's all the way.

I re-bought Mogami with 155's just for the funs.  DE and IFHE, along with India X-ray signal, are very helpful.  Stand on the rudder and burn stuff down.

It's a 3% chance reduction.

See this is why American cruisers are amazing... lofty shell arc for plunging fire on BBs and that lovely fire chance against basically everything. I landed 92hits last game in my Baltimore and started 7 fires... ooh it was a good damage game!

A wee bit surprised....First time out in the Mogami and 55 hits and set only one fire ?!?!?!    Oh well....

Huh, it's almost as if the % chance for a fire is per shell, and it is NOT cumulative but is rolled individually each and every time. WHo would have thought.
