Shchors broken?

I just faced two Shchors one after another and my battleship had four fires set too him after he had just extinguished three/four others. Took the liberty to look at the chance to set fires and it is 20%, so is our luck just terrible or is this ship bugged?

Fires are a chance roll.  Sometimes it rolls a natural.

Sometimes it rolls snakeyes.

That's just what they do, stay at range and start fires. Now you know.

No Schors is an incredible long range HE spammer at Tier 7 but the ship is very fragile. I would say that what you witnessed was just good/ bad (depending on who you are) RNG.

You do know that if you blow on them, they get quadruple cit, dev struck....

Right?

What's with people pointing out that the Schors is squishy? What does that have to do with the OPs topic?

 

It sounds like you were very unlucky and they were very lucky. I have noticed some "lucky" fires on my BBs lately, but considering fires are RNG based its hard to tell if that is just luck or if there is something else going on behind the scenes.

That's why WG gave these RUCLs great gunnery for long range combat.  Budyonny, Schors, Chappy, Kirov, for example.  Very squishy hulls and they need to be able to stay at range and remain in play.  I remember when I first got Schors I made the huge mistake on playing aggressive.  She's too big, her concealment is bad, the gun handling is awful if you find surprises, her agility is awful, and her Citadel is massive.  But if you keep at range and keep dealing slow, steady damage, Schors began to sing for me.  She was the first ship I ever got "Hackused" on.

One very important thing to consider beside fire RNG is the Tier of your battleship, and what hull you had.
Why? Because it directly impacts fire resistance.  And the difference can be huge; there is almost 17% difference in fire resistance between a T8 BB with upgraded Hull, and a T6 BB with A-Hull.

https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Fire

So if you get  unlucky as to be bottom tier in a T5 BB, A-Hull, going against a Schors with a HE spamming build (pyrotechnician skill) + all relevant signals applied.... This is something that I could see happening without too much bad luck involved.

Because of the topic title and how the OP wrote his statement, it took a second reading to understand that it was OPs ship burning and not the Schors
