Biggest winners:

1. many t8/9 cruisers which have 25, 26,27 mm plating because their armour will be improved significantly. e.g. ijn cruisers, french cruisers, ussr cruisers, dm, salem...

2. Daring and jutland. they don't have to rely on ifhe anymore. so, 4 commander pts saved, hurray! 

3. all bb cuz they will be catch less fires per game/take less he dmg from cruisers and dd.

Biggest losers:

1. all 15in armed bb, e.g. tirpitz. these poor vessels won't be able to overmatch the same tier cruisers.

2. all ifhe cruiser spammers. e.g. wocester, kutuzov, atlanta... 

3. all ifhe DD spammers. e.g. ifhe mahan, farragut, ijn 100mm gunboats...

imo, after this huge change, the meta will be completely changed. lets hope the transition will be smooth or many premiums will be unplayable. e.g. a bismark get yolo rushed by a mogami and it can't do anything about it.

I literally just put IFHE on my Jutland since the guns were pretty horrible.  Will they allow free commander respecs?

My poor tirpitz ...

I'm probably missing something but what does IFHE have to do with overmatch? How is Tirpitz going to be affected by IFHE changes?

It's more than just IFHE changes, there are changes to the armor of cruisers as well (this is what will affect Tirpitz against a well angled cruiser).

Important to note that any armour changes to cruisers as a result of this are applying to deck or central section depending on what caliber the cruiser has.

The bow and stern of these ships will still remain as they are.

Any 25mm bow and stern stay 25mm, any 27mm stay 27mm. Definite nerf to 15", but it isn't throwing around the level of immunity that allows BB style nose-tanking.

Thank God I'll be in a sub soon … so none of the above matters to me now 

 

"God" is always capitalized, like "Fred" or "Nancy" :)

I do hope that they keep an eye on the higher tier 15” gun battleships. Many of those already feel quite marginal as it is.

This may not be a bad thing, as the meta is not in a great place right now.

Likely yes, since this is an across the board change to game mechanics.

Time to bite the bullet and buy me a Thunderer. 

Tragic to see those weak ships like Musashi get hit too, even more 30mm plating to pen.

Sure it wont be immediate though because WG wants those doubloons. I've seen that tactic before.

Nope you got the wrong person, I have never had issue with CV in the game, but calling it cancer when people suffer over this disease is pretty low brow.

I am sorry for accusing you. And yes your 100 percent correct about calling someone that.

I just reset my German and us light cl I wonder how they will be effected?

The main problem with this idea is 6 inch guns in this game are pointless. Its why I hated Cleveland because I would fire 100 rounds and maybe 10 pens.  Its nuts.

immaterial to me.  I don't run IFHE even on my 10cm IJN DD gunboats.  yes, I have discovered the "2" keys.. it took years you know!  If the base pen numbers aren't going to do the job what you have to pay to use IFHE renders the deal.... questionable at best.  Until fire starting and fire damage gets seriously nerfed loosing fire starting chance isn't worth it.

And the other thing is with IJN 10cm guns.. if your not penning the target get closer (this of course does have it's down side.. but hey ain't noth'n free!)

“God” can be either a proper noun or not, depending on which god you’re talking about. If you’re talking about God then it’s capitalized (proper noun / name), but if you’re talking about some other god then it’s not.

You Christians should really come up with a more clear naming convention. The way things are now it’s like if Ford tried to trademark the word “car” for a new model.
