    Had a couple of games earlier and it's disgusting to face a 5v1 with the enemy abusing the HE shellings. I'm taking damage from fire more than their shellings are actually dealing, so I'm sure they were hoping to whittle me down as quickly as they could. Definitely not high-level skill there. >_>

    Tip n°1 : avoid being the target of concentrated fire.
    Tip n°2 : One fire burning on a BB is not the beginning of the end. Two or more are. So if you can, avoid using your repair party consumable if there's only one fire burning, you can usually tank it.

    @Keyan_TTK Taking time to get used to horrible dispersion to be fair on my part. My accuracy is actually quite horrible on tier V; can barely land hits and enemies love to concentrate on me for whatever reason (even when I don't stray too far forward).

    Are you using Kongou ? Her dispersion can be quite trollish indeed. You might oneshot a full-health and traveling at full-speed Bogatyr, but only bracket a perfectly standing still Fusou. And using the dispersion mod seems inly to have a placebo effect.

    You guessed it. She has absolutely horrendous dispersion. I always aim what I think to be perfect shots and still miss by inches. Literal inches, because the enemy swivels and I miss right next to the ship. orz

    @RapidPotential Well, if they actively turned, then yu can't fully blame it on dispersion. Her groupings aren't bad by normal standards; Kawachi and especially Myogi's are infamously bad, whereas Kongou has the general BB "average". Each successive tier gets just a bit better, but they're never gonna be laser accurate.

    It's not that Kongou's dispersion is bad, per se, it's that she only has 8 guns, when Fusou and Amagi have 10.

    But I agree with @RapidPotential : I feel that Kongou's dispersion is trollish. Even when firing on ships not actively avoiding my shells, I can have all shells bracketing the target, and the next salvo will have two hits and two citadels.

    (And I fear we should have split to another thread, but that's nearly too late)

    @Emerald Acid In my defence, I even miss targets that aren't turning. I aim and estimate the shot distance to their relative distance away and still miss by inches because the shell drops just before they reach. It's quite annoying really.

    Add to that you have enemy CVs totally coming after you after firing shots. Boy, I had to do much more work in Tier V than any other tier I have played prior.

    *traumatic missing standing still Fututaka with Kongou intensifies*

    Also, a Kolberg starts whining about us losing a game. Too bad we won, no thanks to him.
