I miss my Atlanta...did it get the major nerf bat while I wasn't paying attention or did they just buff everything else...

How is it possible to get 400 target hits (all to the same target) & only 3 fires for 26k damage?

All my Atlanta battles have been equally pathetic lately...this used to be my go to ship for 100k+ damage w/double digit fires.

What happened?

I think there have been some percentage changes lately; as well as a new skill that reduces the possible number of fire locations from four to three.

Beyond that? I can’t say. RNG has always hated my guts when it comes to starting fires anyway, so I never have had the amazing numbers of fires spoken of by other players.

DE's fire chance was reduced from 3% to 2%, People also actually take fire prevention as a skill now. that plus some bad RNG will get you. You probably also saturated his superstructure or where hitting his belt armor, causing shatters and/or 0 damage "pens"

I don't have IFHE and have been tearing it up in my Atlanta the last few days. Probably just bad RNG.  Happens to all of us. Man... the other day I bounced a shot off a broadside Khab with my Yammy.  A few months back I even had roughly 100 secondary hits land in a Bayern for a total of 200 damage.

taking a rough guess

depleted module

^ or you are firing at ships that have their DC activated and before they enter cool down.  There are a handful of guys in my clan who do massive damage in the tier 7 Operations - 200k in the now departed Narai.  They are doing great in randoms as well, so it's probably captain skills and bad timing on your target selection.

Not sure about your personal experience, but if the shells hit the side of the ship they tend not to light fires. Also, if your shells are hitting the one place that a fire is burning, it won’t light a second one (hence you should ‘walk’ your shells over the target). Third is where RNG blessed you with many fire rolls whilst the target’s DCP was active, hence no fires. 

Essentially, don’t stand near your friends. You’re really unlucky atm.

Hell, I don't drive my sooper squishy 'Lanta in Randoms anymore. As soon as I get detected everybody and their Grandmother is gunning me. I spend more time running and hiding than I do shooting. :Smile_ohmy:

127mm/38 has 21mm of penetration

New Mexico has 25mm over most of its hull, all of its deck and 16mm on its super structure.

 

You get IFHE and that 21mm of penetration goes up to 27mm.

Problem solved.

Had my Balti commander (never use HE on Balti so wasted 4 points)...used to not actually getting any pen damage on BBs w/Atlanta but he shoulda been burnt to water line by 150-175 rounds (as in the baBBy BB hostage situation---Edited: misspelled raisins...hilarious $h!t btw---Atlanta would be the go-to for baBBy BB elimination purposes).

^All of that at once it seems.

Nah...I was only Atlanta on either team.

The lack of actual fires (even if they wouldn't have caused damage due to DC active) is the confusing part. I would have been less confused w/the same damage if there was around 14 fires & DC accounted for the lack of damage...but 3 fires in 400 hits???

Just watched replay...SW corner of Shards...me & him all alone (only dodging his shells)...last 100 shells were mostly all in belt (I was panicking by that point) but the 1st 300 were all superstructure hits & mostly (80%) full volleys spread across the superstructure. He definitely had Fire prevention...all 3 of my fires were in center area (last 1 was part of those last 100 into belt area=300 superstructure hits w/only 2 fires).

My Atlanta is working fine here. Last match I scored 13 fires on 445 hits and that's WITH IFHE bringing down the fire chance a tad, and I wasn't running the fire flags. Just bad luck, mate!

not entirely true.  atlanta has seen nerfs since it was first released.  once upon a time it had an even higher rate of fire than it does now.  i believe her rof was nerfed in the same patch the cleveland was nerfed from its cbt state.

 

but yes, as a general rule, if you've seen a decline in the performance of your premiums, its likely due to either blanket nerfs (i.e. the case with the gremaschy), or simple power creep (e.g. the murmansk).

Fire Prevention has been around for a good while...  not remotely new.
