I would ask where the bad boats set you on fire but since you block you're stats to be seen there is no way for me to assist you in this endeavor.

So in closing I will say it must be user error and "Get Gud"

Such an articulate and intelligent argument.  Your well thought out words have convinced me of the truth in your premise.  I salute your superior debate skills, sir.

IFHE is changing which will make it a real choice for CL's (6" guns) and up on do you want more damage or do you want fires.

More fires....

Obviously that is the direction WG wants us to go....

Directive to set 20 fires in 1 match proves it....

Besides, it would give me great pleasure to insure OP continues to use his dam con on 1 fire......

What’re those? Oh the premium ones I buy, and the flags, and the captain skills? But the first round that hits me on every He salvo starts a fire...?  Ohhhhh

For those just piling on about not wanting change and git gud, are probably running those self same ships that ARE HE spammers.  Fire damage has had such power creep that it seriously needs a flooding rework.  It literally is driving players away and causing people to not enjoy the game.  Which ironically is something some use to [edited] about CV's which caused a rework and nerf due to DD complaints.  Yet when it comes to fire it must be defended to the end no matter the cost to the game.  When a mechanic is that broken and over powered it needs to be balanced again.  Think about it, you can dodge torps, and shoot down planes, but the HE spammers will never let you get away and can hunt someone who can't angle against it.  As well as more then likely can't run away from it.

 

More and more people are stating this and bringing this up.  WG should seriously look into this and check their numbers.

Wouldn't be as much of a problem if WG stopped pushing this higher and higher ROF trend on everything. Nerfing IFHE/ Fire won't address the root cause of it.

But they keep adding higher and higher ROF ships so we're stuck with it either way.

When I was in Basic if a troop wasn't following orders he'd get his helmet knocked around. If he stuck his butt too high on a low crawl he'd get a boot in the back to remind him to stay lower. If he wasn't listening he'd get a verbal dressing down and then do twenty Army push-ups (that's 40 civilian pushups) to remind him to pay attention better. These "attitude adjustments" were not brutal, heck I got yelled at, grass drilled, and had the crap knocked out of me in high school football a lot more than I ever did in the Army, they were part of training to be a soldier.

Fast-forward a few decades and my cousin's boy came back wounded from his last tour in Afghanistan. Having fought for several years in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and having reached the rank of E-7, he thought he ought to apply for a training assignment so he could pass on what he'd learned. After a year he said that the Army removed him as a Drill Sergeant because he was making the girls cry when he yelled at them. I don't know what those girls thought they might encounter if captured by ISIS or the Taliban but I'd say that it would be a lot tougher than being yelled at. Now he teaches squad tactics to special forces soldiers from around the world and likes it a lot better.

IFHE is a captain skill.  Except for torpedo accel no other captain skill has a trade off like what's coming.

For comparison what if you took FP but you would take more direct pens.  As you say, make it a real choice... do you want to take less pen damage or do you want less fire damage... or what if when you take EM it lowers your rate of fire.... oh wait... we used to have that....Hhmmmm.... wonder why that went away...  well, nevermind, let's get back to playing World of Battleships...

IFHE is supposed to be a decision and not a no brainer and the original IFHE was a 33%  penalty but it was changed to the current -3/-1 which is too small.

I am aware, however RNGesus has not favored me today and I'd rather not see numbers like that nerfed even further.

I must not have sacrificed enough tier 2s...
