I am wondering if cruisers are similarly nerf'd  by testing it .  so BBs are easier to citadel now. (esp conq)

For as active as you are on the forums, you are 34 minutes late on posting Notser's video to the forums and a couple days late on the conversation regarding citadels and BB's.

git gud, man....

Since I don't have a reddit account, I'll put this here for LittleWhiteMouse:

I don't have a recording of it, but I did tests similar to this one the patch RN BB were released, trying to hit the center top of the citadel with my Montana in training rooms. I definitely saw fewer citadels than Flamu does here, and never below 9.2km or so. He's doing vastly more damage than I did.

Wow a BB that can be citadel ? This thing still exist in 2018 ?

 

Well that's not really an issue that BB will have to...you know, angle using their armor. They are already camping at the back of the fleet full broadside without being punished so this change will probably force them to move

I want to say yes. I've been playing cruisers tonight, and I seem to be getting beaten up more than usual, as well as getting more cits on other cruisers than I'm used to.

The laugh Flamu had with the joke at the beginning is sort of true.  Buff Yamato by nerfing everyone else :Smile_teethhappy:

 

Angle or go bow on, or eat cits.  Of course in that capacity, Yamato doesn't mind with LOLPEN Guns.  Go bow on and all that all you want.

I didn't think nothing of it until I citadeled a tirpitz in the scenario with the Lyon.

It gets funny watching a normally belligerent BB take a citadel hit.  You Imagine this....

BBs could always do that.  I've seen it done with the Hipper, Pensacola, etc. 

 

If this patch made it easier, great, but I still think they should be more vulnerable in close engagements to AP and not at long range where HE is supposed to be more valuable.

I would consider the 8-9km range I was at to be very unlikely to happen previously.

Not necessarily.  The Lyon isn't punching above its weight beyond that range with 340mm shells so that's probably a good range for it against the Tirpitz.  And again it isn't like any of these ships were immune to citadels before at any range from battleships but the variables involved are more important than the result.

Is this only against battleships?

Or are cruisers now even easier to citadel? I read the patchnotes and couldn't really tell...
