What's the deal with Hindy?

I took nearly a year off from WoWS...when I left, my WTR (in Hindy) was solidly above 1400.  I logged on to Warships Today, against my better judgment, for the first time in a long time...now just 1285 without playing a match...which means everyone else got a LOT better.  Is that just more good players taking her out, did she actually get better, or what?  I know she was recently nerfed...which makes me irrationally sad.  Anyhow, is the Hindy all that and a bag of chips now, or what?  

I'd like to say I had Hindy "before it was cool"...but, I feel the need to sail her now just to defend my honor! :Smile-_tongue:

Warships today has been broken if that answers your question.

This. 

Hindie is still a good performer- great if you know what to do with her which your stats clearly show you do... or at least did.

Not sure if "little" is the word I would use to describe it but I certainly agree with the rest.

It became popular due to it being a mainstay in CB, especially with skilled players.  Once people determined that even though it's specialty is strong AP, that it is superb at setting BB's on fire and keeping them burning, even average players began racking up massive damage numbers.  Everybody just got better at using it - especially Unicorns, so that actually happens to lots of ships, though normally in the other direction.

No one is going to mention she was given IFHE by default?

Fun part was people throwing fits that the extra second made her a POS boat somehow.  Very amusing times.

Clearly a sign of WG's "Anti-German Bias," right? :Smile_teethhappy:  The whole dang line got it whereas other ship lines, i.e. USN & RU CLs need it as mandatory and still need to pay the 4 pts for it.

A year ago it didn't have the HE pen rule in effect. It got a big buff and went from a 68K server average damage a year ago to the almost 80K it is today. It's in a much better place than when it was  first released. Its way way easier to deal reliable and consistent damage with the new HE pen.

So take him out and play the heck out of Him. Your damage numbers are gonna shoot way up from a year ago.

You’re not kidding. I played four matches yesterday, including two tough losses...granted, small sample, but every match was above my old average damage. Still seems like the ship I knew...though it does perhaps need a small buff. I overextended a bit, was being focused by two other Hindy and at least one BB...I lost like half my HP and didn’t get a kill...must be broken! :Smile_teethhappy:
