Fellow Captains,

I have to say  I am more angry this morning than I have been in a long time about this damn game.  I was playing in a match today with my Abruzzi when "poof" I exploded.  I was hit with 3 shells and lost my entire HP amount.  Three damn hits and boom.  Not a detonation.  Just boom.  I had only bumped into a teammate earlier in the match so I had 99.9% of my HP left.

This is total and utter crap.  In real life, 3 god damn shells from a single BB would not obliterate a cruiser.  I had my detonation signal on so this is total crap.  Why the hell am I wasting my time outfitting detonation signals.

They need to fix the freakin armor on Italian Cruisers.  BB are not shooting nuclear tipped missles.

Okay rant over.

Peace Out,

Joe

Let's pick for example Colorado and it's AP. On a citadel it does 12.5k damage. Your HP is 32.5k, so you just got triplecitadelled. No detonation or anything, just bad luck and/or good aiming from the enemy BB.

I don't think enemy BB Captain skill had anything to do with it.  I think the ship needs to be fixed so one salvo with 3 hits does not result in total loss of HP.  I the match works out that this is possible than that suggests a possible fix.

I bet that is was three citadels for a devastating strike. You have 32,500 hit points and three citadels from a Colorado for example deals 37,200 hit points, boom dead Duca degli Abruzzi. I have been on both sides of that deal and yes it is frustrating but what you should have done was to give the player that killed you a nice shot.

1. It's not real life. You pretty clearly took 3 citadel hits.  With over 8k games under your belt, how could you NOT know that this is what happened and so on and so forth???

2. Fixing the armor wouldn't really do you any good, unless they made the armor BB-grade armor, which never happened in real life!!!  In fact, it's often better for cruisers to be incredibly squishy rather than be well armored (for cruisers) because that very squishness increases the likelihood that hits will be overpens rather than full pens.

True that it isn't real life but in real life three solid BB hits on a cruiser would pretty well wreck it no matter where they hit. Oh it probably wouldn't sink but it would not be doing much fighting at least until all the systems that were knocked off line were brought back up.

Oh, I completely agree.

I evaporated a Smolensk in the atoll of Sleeping Giant with my Monty. I got a DS but it did not get a detonation. It looked full health. I suppose it had .1% damage before that.

Those are fun to give but never fun to receive! I, unfortunately, receive them more than give them...

Peace out, @JoeSlackman

They're not shooting nukes (well, the USN might be) but they are shooting the equivalent of a small car filled with high explosive. It only took one shell to vaporize the Hood, and that had way more armor than Abruzzi. And IRL three BB AP hits would pretty much render a CL combat ineffective. So it's not actually unrealistic. In game, well don't give broadside to a BB is kind of rule #1 so what did you expect?

To be fair--That would be a detonation. The OP had a FLAG that prevented detonations. I guess the captain of the Hood thought he could get by without one.:Smile_trollface:

On an actual warship, it's not how many shells hit a ship, it's exactly where they hit. It's just as likely to be the first shell to hit as it is the 20th.

Hey

To be fair the Abruzzi is garbage.  You have a decent game, maybe 1 in 8 where it's average damage, the rest are sub par.  You hit stuff but it's so low of damage that you feel like your wasting your time.  It's nearly as bad as playing the Indianapolis, which I think has better potential. and at least it has radar .Abruzzi feels more like a T6 cruiser in performance, I have had better games from the T6 Duca than I can with Abruzzi.
