Anyone else feel likes super cruiser fire duration should be brought back to 45 seconds?

So I got the Siegfried over the weekend, and the guns have indeed been quite satisfying.

But good lord, the fires. 

Didn't really notice the change with my Alaska since I'm at range anyways, and I can safely disengage and put out single fire if I so wished. 

With Siegfried though, since it's like Petro in that it's HE is terrible and it's AP needs broadsides, I've found myself needing to flank more aggressively to get said broadsides, coming under more intense fire occasionally. 

Let me tell you, it feels absolutely awful being more susceptible to fires than even my BBs. 

No FP is the biggest one, single fires quickly turn into double fires on the superstructure. 

To make matters worse, no BoS. Although to be fair, most of my BB captains didn't run it anyways. 

Then there's the slot 4 upgrade. Sure, you could take damage control mod 2,but you're still a cruiser. You still need to bait shots into your belt and quickly angle back in, or turn your bow out of the way of incoming shells. Can't really afford to take fire mitigation there if it would mean eating a lot more normal penetration damage. 

So I think it's time to revert supercruiser burn times down to 45 seconds. It'll still be worse than pre rework, since two 45 second fires are going to hurt more than one 60 second fire, but at least it'll be a bit more manageable.

I’d rather see them rework fires in general, since they’re currently garbage as a mechanic.

Now that FP's gone from them, I wouldn't mind it.
