Anyone else find the SAP bounce angle nerf really oppressive for the Venezia?

SAP bounce angle nerf (as well as reload nerf for the Venezia)

  1. 1. How much do you find the nerfs have reduced the Venezia's damage/match for you?

    • It's quite oppressive. On average, I'm losing 10% or more of damage/match with my Venezia
    • It's not so oppressive. On average, I'm losing less than 10% of damage/match with my Venezia
    • I have not played both pre-nerf and post-nerf Venezia to have an opinion

I recently tried the Venezia post nerf. The main gun reload nerf isn't bad, but the SAP bounce angle nerf feels really oppressive. With that nerf, the SAPs are so useless against angled cruisers and battleships, and I have to find their broadside to do some damage.

Do you guys also find this quite oppressive? Does the SAP angle nerf also apply to other Italian cruisers?

I've found some stats (source: http://maplesyrup.sweet.coocan.jp/wows/index.html):

Speaking of damage/match, from 88507 to 79299, that's a 10.4% reduction. This is very close to my previous personal experience-based estimate.

No.

She is fine.. No other cruiser can deal more DMG in a single salvo then her SAP shells...

because no other T10 CA fires SAP...the Venezia was the best CA at T10...not any more...

I beg to differ, Her SAP salvo just melts BBs.

SAP, are just one of many high tier in game experience elements, contributing to the stall high tier game play.

SAP (almost) never set fires, and they rarely devastates in one strike BB...High tier game play can be fluid or not, it depends of the battles and players, so it's quite diverse and you can have all of your team kiting or pushing as hell, or a combination of both, it's up of the randomness of these type of battles. Now, I prefer Ranked by far, you push or you lose...

I notice other stats that dropped significantly are the "Survived" and "Kills/Death".

I guess if you aren't doing as much damage, enemies have more time to kill you first.

Still, a WR over 50% is probably WGs target for their spreadsheet.

Hey

At least the Venezia wasn't given the NERF hammer like Henri 4 was given, which completely ruined a once very good cruiser, which could have been a good counter to the Venezia.  But no!
