So just completed the Defender of the Fatherland mission. 

  • Part 1 = 15 citadels (easy-peasy Budyonny (2) + Kirov (1) = 3 games total - honestly Budyonny has become my go to ship for citadels)
  • Part 2 = Sink 10 ships (did it in 4 games = Kamikaze, Fujin, Hill, Nicholas)

And then we have Part 3

  • Part 3 = 20 fires

No problem, I will haul out ol' fire reliable Conqueror = 2, then 2 again, WHAT??? Ok, let's drag out Thunderer with it's 63% fire chance = 2! :Smile_facepalm: Ok, lets drop down to low tier with fast ROF CL's. Omaha = 2. :Smile_sceptic: Ok you asked for it bots here comes Harugumo = 2. Really? :etc_swear:So 5 games with good HE ships and only 10 fires. :Smile_amazed: Screw it, let's try another. Dallas = 10! :Smile_facepalm:I mean come on RNG LOL.

You have to laugh at the RNG in this game because otherwise you would get mad or cry.

Why did you not unleash Smolensk and pray to Stalin for fires? :Smile_trollface:

Well after Conqueror and Thunderer failed (these are my go to ships for fires and module damage) I wanted to try lower tier where sometimes it is easier without the built in fire protection higher tier ships have. Then when I went back after Omaha failed too I thought for sure Harugumo would do well but nope. So I grabbed a ship I usually do crappy in and viola 10 to finish. :Smile_facepalm:

RNG and I have a serious love hate relationship and today it hates me. No idea what I did wrong either to tick it off? It's like a wife being mad at you; you are wrong even when right... :Smile_hiding:

:Smile_veryhappy::Smile_veryhappy: I took out Atlanta minus ifhe with DE active for that part, and as I am watching the hit counter go past 500, realize it has only set 3 fires against multiple ships. Kind of a 'wth' moment!

The last time I took out Smolensk, she got popped like a tick from across the map in the first two minutes.  I guess I didn't angle well enough?  :cap_fainting:

In co-op? That's just RNGesus showing Smolensk that there are bigger fish in the sea. In Randoms you were careless, but popping Smolensks with a couple of cits through the nose when I am driving an 18 inch-class BB (Musashi, Thunderer) is always fun, even though I own one myself.

  Yep, the game loves to troll when there are specific mission requirements...   Fires are always a favorite.   When I TRY to get em, it's usually no dice.  It's only when I give up and switch to some random ship that BAM!!  fire every other salvo, lol.

  Caps? even worse!  I normally get a long string of Standard matches and 3 minute blow outs...

I was looking for that Red Sea Salt needed to circle the PC; the candles from the Holy city; the bless single barrel rum from Saint Croix; and, all of my sculpted figures I've collected all over the world because I knew Wuju-Buzju was laughing at me because the candles flames were moving !!!!  Oh yes, a cursed event requirement......:Smile_hiding:

I forgot to hit save after taking a screen shot, but I had 33, zero damage HE hits on a Izumo yesterday. Made me want to scream.

On the other hand, the bots seem to have not problem setting fires on me, whatever ship I am driving.

How many of you have actually looked at the detailed post battle info, and noticed that you will get fire ribbons, but tons of the "fires" on the ships you hit show 0 fire damage...

All the time.  Bots always put out the first fire.

Similar experience with the Georgia. I was going for secondary hits, but hey, they are shooting HE, right. Ended up with a decent effort, 450+ hits. I got 3 fires and at least one of those was from HE salvos with the mains.

And for some reason they seem immune to getting relit for a long time afterwards.

This and then they are almost impossible to set on fire again until their DCP comes off cool down and THEN the game lets you...rinse repeat.
