Fuso vs Izmail
« on: June 06, 2019, 07:36:00 am »
Just yesterday I got out of the Kongo and into the Fuso. Wow what a difference between them!

Iím liking the Fuso for the most part. However, Iíve run into a ship that seems to be the bane of my Fuso.

The Izmail.

Iíve gone up against an Izmail numerous times now in my Fuso. Nearly every battle Iíve had in my Fuso so far has at least one Izmail. Iíve only survived this encounter once, and that was because other teammates were with me and they sank the Izmail. It was my Fuso, a cruiser and a destroyer against the Izmail. The CR and the DD did more damage to the Izmail than I did. The DDís torps got it.

My Fuso, in the above battle and every other battle Iíve had against an Izmail, nearly all my shots bounce. Those very few that do connect do so little damage itís pitiful.

Iíve hit it from every angle (Bow on, quarter angle both forward and stern, full broadside, and straight astern.) and different distances (long range to point blank), and different parts of the ship, all with the exact same affect. My shots just bounce. Iíve hit it full broadside at least three times and my shots just bounce.

Once I was 1.5K distance, full broadside, aimed at the waterline right in the center. I thought finally, Iím going to get some damage with this shot, thereís no way I canít. I connected with 10 out of 12 guns and got 10 bounces.

That ranks as one of the most frustrating and discouraging shots Iíve ever taken in this game.

FYI, I have used AP ammo in every encounter with an Izmail in my Fuso.

Can anyone explain what is happening here?

I believe that all the Russian BB citadels are above the waterline.  I found out today in a Vladi vs Vladi match the it's citadel is near the back turret.  Give that a try

Thanks I will. Right after I posted this I finally hit an Izmail at the citadel. And then 73rd did a practice battle with me and I had no problem damaging his Izmail with my Fuso. So I don't know what in the world has been going on so far with my Fuso. Most likely operator error. :)
