No, seriously, how you should play IJN BBs

First of all, forget the BB part. They are not. They are significantly bulkier, more sluggish and inmaneuverable CAs with an enlarged hull which incurs a much higher chance to get damaged. Any decent BB with your IJN BB tier - 2  and higher has an incredible high chance to cit-hit them.

So stop treating them like BBs. First and foremost. Remember this well and your defeat will be less humiliating. I don't know, hide behind an island you little mig-15. 

2ND of all, they are not snipers. What makes a good sniper: Incredibly accurate shells + incredibly powerful shells. In other words, you take on your enemy from afar, you land 2/3 of your salvo, you damage >= 8000 with that. 

But none of that is true with every single IJN BB. Unpainted and unbuffed, the enemy has a ridiculously high chance of catching all of your shells landing on both side of them, that is, not getting scratched at all. NVM aiming. It doesn't matter. Oh you aim well? Only 3 or so will hit, and they total a some 4000 damage. Any self-respecting german BB can score that accuracy at the max range - except they have much much higher actual damage output per shell. Getting a none cit-hit 8000 k or above dmg is rare for german ship at medium to long range, and near impossible for IJN BBs.

If you still believe it's because you suck so you can't play IJN BB, try American and Germans. Do you notice both your win rate and sinking record skyrockets? That's right, you are definitely not alone.

Oh did I mention they are littered with Ryan Reynolds' urine jar? Except they have solidified gasoline compound in them. Thats right. They catch one shell of HE, they burn. And it's quite a common scene where IJN BBs got lit 3 places by one little torp boat. 

Notice how most in the "OMG YOU JUST SUCK IJN SHIPS ARE AWESOME YOU JUST NEED TO LEARN TO SNIPE" don't actually use IJN BBs as their main at all? Thasss right. They too hate IJN ships, they are still in the denial-=-self-doubt phase and are coping by not playing them.

This is the reality. This is what happened: In the earlier versions, before the #918294 patch got patched, IJN BBs were awesome. Well it was a bit too... awesome. And it was accurate. IJN personnel were well trained, and the gunnery skills were godlike, to put it moderately. Remember the battle of savo islands? Remember what happened to ABDA fleet? They were awesome... in early releases. Look it up on youtube. Tons of medicore streamers score an easy 5 streak with them. Oh did I mention the DDs were absolute HORROR? This pissed off a lot of people. USN hogs, Queen HMS dry wood sticks and Wehraboos. They banged their heads loudly at their PC station disassembling their keyboards. 

And sex worker gaming gave in. They started nerfing everything IJN. The CAs became tug boats, the BBs are now CAs, and DD... well they DD are not officially torp boats. That's all they are good at. Save for a different line of DDs.  Well at least the torp is still good because sex worker gaming doesn't want to be completely inaccurate with ships.

Good job I say. Now the only reason to play IJN is to grind your way to Yamato, which again has been nerfed... just not so dramatically.

They're not that bad. Just shoot the enemy when they're spotted. Pretty simple concept

I don't think there is one singular point I agree with in this post, which says a lot since there were many.

Probably just trolling but eh, I'm bored.

They aren't brawlers and aren't snipers. They're mid range BBs. Stay steeply angled to enemy BBs and hunt cruisers of any tier and BBs that are a tier under you as your priority targets to thin the enemy team quickly.

I wonder. 

Do you adopt the same pathetic, surrenderist tactic when playing other lines of BBs?

Not sure when you can give a Poster credit that hasn't played 2k games.    IJN BB is the only BB I can understand that can and might be better at range than others.

ANOTHER SALVO. SHIP LIT UP IN 2 PLACES. 1 SALVO, 2 FLAMING SPOT. THAT PROOVES PRECISELY HOW BAD A PLAYER I AM, I CAN MANIPULATE THE GAME TELE-ELECTRONICALLY TO HAVE ODDS AGAINST ME.

My stats with US BBs and Germany BBs are much, much, much better.

[edited] Yamato. It's not worth it. I'm gonna sell all my IJN BBs and stick with those 2 lines.

Oh, now its "not that bad" eh?

 

You know half a year or so ago I pointed this out what you people were yelling at me? Basically super ships being played by a noob player.

And then I shut yall up by posting my 3 winning streak with 3 sinks in every single battle.

But still, some yous were audacious and brazen enough to say I was just being lucky. 

 

I wonder what made yall change yous mind? So they are bad, just NOT that bad, now, eh?  What made them stop being such super ships?

Aim higher, hit just under the superstructure. If a battleship is angling heavily, actually hit the superstructure. Or, switch to HE. 

You're also rather close to the enemy team there. Amagi does best 15~18 km away from her targets, so I would have started kiting away from them much sooner, keeping that distance. It would have also kept you from being the primary target, as I suspect happened here.

Wow, ummm.... All I can say is not every ship is for every person. I feel like the IJN BB's are good ships, except Izumo is a little inconsistent, overall. If you find your play style and the ship dont match up, try another ship line.

RivertheRoyal, thanks for the advice, not sure if the OP will listen.

But I have.:Smile_honoring:

Well now I know you're just a troll. Thank god. I was worried you might actually be as dumb as your first post made you sound. 

Carry on, good sir. :Smile_honoring:
