I just finished a game in my Ohio. I hit a broadside Henry at least 10 times and got 6-7 over-pens. These were well aimed shots both to just above waterline or in between waterline and the deck. This has been going on with every cruiser I shoot at, though occasionally I get a cit or two. They are cruisers people say, so I should expect that, which I do to some extent. But this is ridiculous.  It is also happening when I hit BB's. Constant over-pens, bounces or ricochets, even against ships with solid armor sailing broadside that I see solid hits on. I even tried shooting at the main belts of some ships and I still get over-pens.  I was so excited to get the Ohio but now I don't even want to play it.

I'm seeing this with every BB I play when I use AP. The shells are significantly less effective than they were before the patch. Has anyone else noticed this or am I having a really bad streak? My BB win rate is way down since the patch. I don't even want to talk about ships like the Smolensk (5 over-pens in 1 salvo at short range). Just change to HE I'm told. Well, the Smol appears broadside, I have AP loaded and I have a choice, shoot or try to change shells and I know he will pop smoke so I shoot.

I've only been playing the game about 9 months but it seems to be less and less fun. Something appears very broken.

BB AP still cit my Cruisers with predictable regularity so nothing's changed that I can see.

Unfortunately it's all anecdotal. Without access to a training room and both patches, there is no way to test. They may a lot of changes to armor and pen in this patch and there is very good chance something is off. They have made big mistakes before. Even an increase of 20% in over-pens is huge nerf to BB's.

As a Cruiser main, if that was so I would'n't shed a tear.

I like cruisers as well, but I don't want to win because Wargaming made a mistake. They made major changes and some ships may not be working the way they should.
