Did the Hindy get an armor nerf at some point?

Or is it just a long string of bad RNG? It seems like most every game I play it these days I get citadeled at least twice, and playing against them it seems very easy compared to the previous patches to get a citadel or two.

O no, BBs are just getting OP... I think is more of a power creep and bad RNG..

Just sing the BB mantra of "get gud."

The french bbs are good at doing this from range, so the sov bbs might be too if I understand their muzzle velocity.

More is the 30mm armor threshold slowly getting devalued. What was once exclusive to only two BBs, is now possible for four ships with two more being WiP with the same ability.

Muzzle velocity? Yes. Accuracy?

 At the ranges their shell arcs would require to reliably citadel a Hindy, that would be a DAMNED lucky shot. "Stronk Soviet Accuracy" for that line stops pretty much right at 12km out, at which point it gets replaced with "if the shell lands in the same postal code that I targeted, I'll call it a win". Pobeda is a bit of an exception from what I've heard, but Kreml, Vlad, and Sovetsky Soyuz? No, no they're not pulling that shot off consistently.

Ye had the same feel. Its just rng + lots of HE BBs which doenst matter what you do or angle give you dmg like hell.

French BBs will nuke a Hindy, especially at range. My Republic will cit a Handy easily, and it'll really hurt German BBs with normal pens too. The Frenchies were a hard counter to the Germans

Republique is pretty much the only BB I really have to be carefull with, it seems to cit at any angle, otherwise I think its no biggie.

I thought that as the CV and DD mantra?

Broadside Hindy at range is tempting target for BBs. I've been citted in mine mostly from red Montanas and occasional Yamato. Republique is reportedly the nastiest because of her faster reload.
