Let me get this straight, DDs taking full pen from BB AP was removed...

And then we are releasing a BB line that has SAP, which has higher damage per shell than the respective AP, and has no issue doing full damage to DDs?

I mean, it is what it is I guess, but that change was made for a reason.  Certainly not complaining about the ITA BB line that's coming, but lol.  

If that's the case, can we get a IJN light cruiser line that has the ability to stealth fire?  I mean it'll be fine, it's just one line.

It really does get better every patch cycle =)

 

TL,DR I got wrecked by Colombo SAP in a DD.

What if I told you that SAP follows the same 10% damage rule as AP, the SAP alpha was nerfed to about equal with the AP (or worse for lower tiered ships), and that you only got wrecked by Colombo SAP because of the number of shells and NOT individual shell damage?  He'd have done about the same damage to you loading AP.

the BB SAP is also capped at 10% damage to DDs now.  Colombo just has 16 guns to blap you with.

Then I'd say I'm a potato and deserve to be mocked.

I can't say the last time I took a 10k salvo from 15" guns in a DD.  Thanks for educating me.  I'll stop being bad, or as bad.

To be fair, most 15" armed BBs don't throw enough shells to do it with 10% pens.  Only Pommern, Alsace, Bourg, Lepanto, and Colombo do.

No worries, I had missed the SAP change although just like with AP you will rarely get a standard 33% penetration.

I remember @LittleWhiteMouse mentioning Battleship SAP is going to have a cap on damage like AP does now.

Edit:  This came up during some conversation about BB Impero and Battleship SAP.
