Don't shoot at a target's thickest armor. Aim for the superstructure, not the belt. If you see the first 10 shatters, why do you continue to shoot at the same spot?

Low-caliber guns will tend to shatter a lot. Especially if you aim at the hulls and not the superstructure. Aim higher at your targets.

Hmm, then if you shooting at BBs, best aim for the Superstructure like what Lert said. If it's cruisers giving you problems, then same or go for IFHE

What ship are you in and what ship are you shooting at?  Shell caliber makes a huge difference.

Methinks you were aiming high as you said but your shells were hitting the turrets

Have you turned on detailed ribbons? That tells you whether you pen, over pen, or shatter when they land. Then if you are watching the ribbons then you know when they shatter so you can adjust your aim.

Thanks for the responses, I think it is a bad streak of rng. I have had plenty of fires and decent pen prior.

Not rng. Penetration is a set amount (IIRC a certain percent of gun caliber) for HE shells. The only bad RNG you could be having is bad accuracy, causing your shells to hit turrets and conning towers, both of which eat HE shells.

You just have 'sloppy' aim.

There may be a fire starting RNG, but there's almost no shell RNG for cruisers and DDs.

127mm and 152mm guns will not penetrate 25mm of plating and 25mm of plating are found on the hulls of most T8+ cruisers as well as all T6+ BBs.
