Ran my Seattle & of all my hits, only using HE without IFHE only one hit did damage.

From how quick the match was over I don't think anyone on my team was doing much damage.

There's a reason pretty much everyone runs IFHE on the Seattle (and all CLs for that matter). You just discovered that reason.

A couple of days ago I scored 6 citadels in a single battle using HE.

I'm not denying IFHE would help, I took concealment 1st, need 3 more commander points for IFHE.

(no, I don't think WG actually hates me)

Yeah, but not against high tier ships. The armor on high tier ships is such that you can't pen most of the decks if you're uptiered.

And yeah, HE cits are hilarious. Mid tier RN and MN CLs are particularly prone to such issues:Smile_teethhappy:

152/6 = 25.333

IF you're shooting at ships with 25mm or more armor you will deal no damage, at tier 8 to 10 that's virtually everything save DDs and a handful of light cruisers. So the only damage you can do without IFHE is superstructure and fire damage.

IFHE means you can deal damage to bow or stern of practically anything it's basically mandatory for the 6 inch guns in that line.
