Why am I so good at starting the First fire?

Seems like I can have bot like luck with my first or second HE salvo (IF RNG is smiling at me and lets me hit at all) starting a fire which is quickly extinguished. Unlike the bots, my subsequent salvos have a hell of a time starting a fire. Long after any Repair immunity could be in effect. To rub it in, allies will start a fire or two but the places I hit seem immune. I realize it is just RNG messing with me but it sure seems conspiratorial at times.

Bot like luck can best be described in a recent experience. I was ducking for cover behind an island with a bit of a saddle. One shell of an incoming medium caliber salvo made it thru that saddle, hit me and caused a fire.

Luck, or you’re a bot?

In any case, Cleveland and Kut were always called fire starters, yet I hardly ever got any, (had better luck with Cleve’s AP.)

Konigsburg not so much, but I never seemed to have trouble getting fires with it.

Have often had games where I had multiple fires ribbons with NO fire damage.

The no damage fire, must be related to the zero damage pens on a pristine vessel i.e. no damage saturation.

You start a fire, you get a ribbon. The bots extinguish the fire with Repair before it does any damage (6 seconds?)  you get no damage. have to count on the second fire set to do damage. The zero damage pens is something different.

Yep I know, just trying to inject some humour.
