When you have a fire mission, you have to bring you best gal to the dance.

What do you do when everything is on fire? :Smile_hiding:

How long in that game where you on fire? :cap_wander: I know in OP’s just about every HE shell that hits you starts one but not sure about Co-op

If you're taking a screenshot of the lineup at the start of the battle, there seems no reason to blank anything out as no shame has yet accumulated. For all I know, looking at this, everyone except you is a bot (the legal WG kind).

Actually it was a completely human team, I blanked the names cos they're not me and consequently I can't assume permission to post it on a public forum. However, just for you I have attached a less drastically blanked screenshot where you can see the clans of all the participants.

So what is the best fire starter ship for the tier of targets it faces? . Per salvo ships like Thunderer win  but if you're looking at fires per minute with the ability to spread them around when you first target already has 2  fires, what ship(s) stand out?

For me it is the 3 Japanese gunbote DD's.  Even after the HE nerf, I still set a fire with the first salvo almost everytime.  If it is a DD or Cruiser I start a 5 second countdown and as soon as the damage controls ends. I light them up again.

Great fun...

Honestly, Conqueror and Thunderer are hard to beat for fire starting. They are my go to ships for it (and Module damage). Conqueror has 12 guns with a ridiculous fire % chance and Thunderer has 8 laser guns with an insane fire % chance. They both have very long range which lets you start shooting early too.

Both routinely give me 2 fires for a salvo. I have even had 3. 10-15 fires is the norm for me in them (when trying for it - I use AP a lot). The reload is longer sure but factor in the fire % chance of something like Smolensk or Harugumo which are a small fraction of the 2 BB's and IMO the BB's give a better chance. Also, don't overlook Republique for fire missions. Very good fire chance with fast reload. Jean Bart does ok at it too.

Another good choice is a CV that has rockets and HE bombs like Midway. On paper the BRN CV's should be really good at fire missions but I have not had a lot of success using them.

Mikoyan... That thing is so badly protected that she makes Omaha and Emerald look like GK in terms of armor.

Funny you mention that.

The non-Mikoyan players were all AFK, so from my flank it looked like a horse race as every Mikoyan rushed forward. 

Somehow I have six kills in Mikoyan.

I remember toying around with the ITA SAP Cruisers for their early release event.  Was playing that horrid Tier V Premium CA of theirs.  I remember being able to SAP Citadel via the armor belt Kirov, but was surprised to see I couldn't do the same against Emerald and Omaha.  I went to port, looked at the SAP Pen for the 203s looked at Kirov's belt armor... Yeah, that's why I was able to Citadel with SAP that Kirov, paper armor belt.  Then I looked at Emerald and Omaha's belt armor and saw it was too thickly armored and would defeat my 203mm SAP shells :Smile_trollface:

 

Kirov is badly armored, and Mikoyan is even worse.  It's even somehow made even worse than that considering how low in HP Mikoyan is.

 

I'd imagine in a PVP setting this would be terrifying for Mikoyan.  Mikoyan can stand off.  But the ITA SAP Cruisers got pretty decent shell flight characteristics and the SAP shells don't lose power at range.  All they need to do is hit Mikoyan.  And RU Cruisers aren't exactly small, agile boats, either.

Gorizia was similar to Mikoyan in terms of being a dev strike victim. Gorizia, however, in PVE could citadel the crap out of most of the similar tier cruisers... providing she got the chance that is..

Mikoyan, Bagration Token Farming FTW!

 

When the RU Cruiser Event is over, I promise you Mikoyan is going to disappear.  I'll never touch that ship again unless something like Snowflakes for Coal for her are involved.

As a tier 5, I'm not certain I'll play it for the coal.
