I was rushing a Missouri with my Minsk (the misso was rushing a cap, going full yolo no fuc*s given) I pop from the corner of the island while having my engine boost.

He aims at me (of course AP loaded) fires and pens me so hard that I instantly lost 90% of HP. Died 3 mins later because of hydro...

So WG when you plan to fix this? It is so frustrating for me as a DD player that loves to be aggressive! 

Thanks for the comments guys!!

So you YOLO'ed a Missouri, ate 16" shells for 90% of your health, and now you want WG to fix exactly WHAT?  :Smile_facepalm:

That's predictable when you give him the entire length of your ship for his shells to arm and detonate inside you. If you'd been less angled, his shells would've just gone through and through and done overpen damage at best.

Maybe dont rush battleships bow on? Just more armor to pen. Side shots usuly over pen, but bow on is just meat to arm ap fuses

So you Leeroy Jenkins a BB who has turrets aimed in your direction and knows you are coming and whine about taking massive damage?

Sorry but just the logic in this is making me giggle.

This is what he is saying: " i.want to be able to rush, torp, and kill a full hp higher tier battleship"  I also don't want the battleship to be able to stop me when I charge him down.  Is that about right?

I think this is a fairly fair result.

The only objection I'd have is that not having to switch ammunition type didn't penalize the ship at all, do the same to an Ibuki when he has AP loaded and you'll autobounce most of them and come away smiling - though he's got the reload to swap. USN BB's? Just press '2'.

I think a good time to stop rushing bbs is right about now....

 

On second thought, please continue:fish_aqua:

I was 18 km away. It was a hell of a good shot. But please assume any situation you want.

Never mind, you're just a BB player... So you not wanting to swap ammo types makes way more sense.

Maybe adding a 50mm bow armor at the front of the DDs, so you can bounce Yamato shells and play aggressive.

Alright, no joking. I play mostly BBs and it's gonna be easier to rush a BB after it fires it's main guns or when the guns are pointing at wrong direction.

It takes forever for those guns to turn and if you have the speed boost and stay close enough, the guns probably will never catch you. And don't show a large profile to the secondaries so you take less damage.

I kind of think it is a bit too much that allow BB to pen DD, cause it is possible to kill the DD with one salvo if you are lucky enough at close range. Overpens should be fine since they only deal around 1k damage.

I could possibly agree to DD armor getting buffed or something if DD Torps could no longer cause detonations on my BBs...  Lol you have to remember it is a 2 way street, BBs can hurt a DD if they are close enough and DDs can certainly hurt BBs at times even with a single well placed Torpedo hit. So I would say things are even.

And what posses you to yolo rush a Radar equipped Missouri?!?!?

It's gonna take more than 6s for shells to land at 18km away... you can doge it with WASD in most of the cases. I won't bother shooting at a DD that is 18Km away since it is really really unlikely to hit. (But I do think WG should get rid of normal pens or make it really unlikely to happen)

In real life 1 BB shell often even from a secondary gun hit could often sink a DD, in WOWs DDs often are able to take several main gun hits.

I don't think most of the BBs stand a good chance if the DD is close enough, the gun simple doesn't turn that fast to catch the DD... if the DD doesn't charge towards where the guns are pointing and get close enough.

You obviously don't understand this thread... We're asking for Overpens to work as they should. Not give me more armor...

They do work as they should... just because you are lightly armored doesnt mean everything should overpen you

Gun traverse is often not the only thing to worry about, you have to consider Rudder shift, turning radius, and the turret travers. Since some captains with accelerate getting guns on target by turning their ship.

That's not what I'm saying at all.... if you actually read... a YAMATO penned me with a plunging shot. This goes back to your first problem that you assume every thing.
