I was in a battle last night defending a fresh cap in cap with my bb when a enemy dd in smoke started to shoot me with some weird he rounds.

They was red flares with a tracer tail like tracer rounds and this utterly put me off my game and the dd shot and killed my bb almost straight away with he.

I couldnt concentrate to fight back there was so many flare rounds coming at me.

I mean what the hell is going on when a dd shoots and kills a bb with he.

What are these silly red tracer rounds ?

I'm laughing so hard I can't breath.

 

I'll assume you haven't been around in a few months and assuage your befuddled mind.

It's the Unique commander Yamato.

They are just a different color.  No difference in stats.

You were being shot at by an Akizuki, which can put out 160 rounds per minute.

Your fault that it befuddled you.

Yes, "seconds", such as 300 of them, assuming you did nothing to preserve yourself.

As stated previously, it is the legendary commander Iroroku Yamamoto. He colors the shell tracers with a red dye, referencing the colored dye of IJN shells during WWII.

Your inability to concentrate is your responsibility.

Akizuki has 100mm guns.  With IFHE it can penetrate the superstructure of BBs and nothing else on a BB.  Without IFHE it can't penetrate anything on a BB with HE and must use AP, which can only do damage to a broadside BB.

You had plenty of time and opportunity to save yourself.  The only fast way for an Akizuki to kill a BB is with torpedoes, which I am confident, based on your posting history, that had it done so you'd have let us know in no uncertain whine.

I can't lie, I saw it yesterday for the first time and had no clue what was up either.

I just assumed it was one of the Halloween camos.

Your demands that the Yamamoto be deleted and how the change in shell color confused you unfairly are whines.
