    Magic Detonations? 4 Detonations in a game

    Thank you very much for the information ! EDIT: I was also wondering if players are just getting better at aiming for and hitting areas of ships that cause detonations. Just like how some players are really good at hitting and disabling turrets.

    Magic Detonations? 4 Detonations in a game

    I am not complaining or anything . . . I just want to learn about changes to the game . . . but could you double check this? My observations are that this used to be the case in the past - that 2 detonation games were extremely rare. But this year, I wonder if the calculations have changed to make detonations much more frequent. I am seeing 2 detonation games much more often than I used to in previous years. I now see 2 detonation games about 1 or 2 times a week - sometimes much more often than that. I am also seeing Battleships have detonations much much more often than they used to. Several months back the intro video to the game was changed to show a Queen Elizabeth Class BB detonating - I started to see more detonations ( including to BBs ) around about the same time. Not complaining, just want to learn if the calculations for detonations have changed at some point to result in more detonations. Thanks for any info on this!

    Question- How does torp damage reduction on torp hits to DDs work? 

    I think I saw a video from Jingles or someone else of something like this happening a few years back. Not sure if it was that same one or not. Now I know that torps can do the same thing. If area is damage saturated all ready.

    Question- How does torp damage reduction on torp hits to DDs work? 

    I see. And my torps also most likely hit the same spot my SAP shells just hit.

    Wow, that is interesting. Thanks everyone. I learned something here!

    Question- How does torp damage reduction on torp hits to DDs work? 

    Thanks for the info Yes both hits were on the bow ( this is from the replay system - zoomed and a different angle ) would have provided a pic of the impact but I was destroyed and the target lost detection. I will look up damage saturation now - did not know it would work in this way.
  7. ( I am not complaining here, I just do not understand. I need to learn something ) How does torp damage reduction on torp hits to DDs work? Playing my Paolo Emilio today I got two torp hits on an Adriatico ( which was not full strength at the time ) and it still survived. How did the Adriatico survive? What am I missing? If I am in a DD and I get hit by 2 Shima torps or 2 Paolo Emilio torps, I am usually destroyed I would understand if I was firing Halland torps - but these were two ( 23,767 max damage ) Paolo Emilio torps. And the Adriatico had taken some SAP damage all ready from my guns. My 2 torp hits only got 13,989 damage on the Adriatico. Why? What happened? I need to learn something here. This cost me and my team the win in the Random Battle in the final minute.

    Is Forrest Sherman still worth it?

    Unless you really want a US ship, I would get Napoli before the F. Sherman. The main point for me of the Sherman is the SAP and the Napoli's SAP secondaries are sort of like having a F.Sherman on each side of the ship. Plus you get excellent main guns on the Napoli and a high speed smoke screen and good torpedoes. I would think about getting the Salem before F.Sherman as well. Love my Salem and I agree with all the things said previously about the Salem. But I do have F. Sherman also and I like it very much. The torpedo angles are actually fun for me in coop. You can charge a bot ship and turn a bit to give it two torps at close range. Works for me. NOTE: One thing to think about however is that any coal ship that becomes too popular in Random Battles tends to get pulled from the Armory ( think Smolensk, Thunderer, Georgia, Jean Bart, etc . . ) And I have seen a very large amount of F. Shermans in Random Battle over the last 2 months. I do not know anything for sure of course, but F. Sherman could may-be possibly get removed from the armory at some point in the next 6 to 12 months.

    Question: About CVs and Unsporting Conduct Warnings and Penalty?

    Ok, I will do that in the future! :-) Thank you very much for the info!
  10. Is this an Error or is it working as intended? Just thought I would ask because I am not sure what is going on? There is a dockyard mission running about shooting down 99 planes while playing CV. I am trying to do this mission. So here is the question(s). I am playing CV in coop and I am laser focusing in on this mission to get 99 planes. In one game I completely ignore attacking ships with my planes and only drop fighters to try to shoot down planes. I did nothing unsporting to any ships. Then after the game I get a message stating that I have engaged in unsporting conduct and I am given a warning. All my xp and credits for the game are taken away. So I guess that this must be because I did no damage to ships. A couple games later I played my Graf Zepp in coop. I move forward to get secondary damage while I fly around dropping fighters to shoot down planes. I get some secondary hit damage. I think that I am ok because I did damage to enemy ships. I did nothing unsporting to any ships But I get another notice that I have done unsporting conduct - game credits and xp gone and this time a penalty is applied to me and I turn pink! :-) I think what is going on?? Does this mean that when playing a CV (even in coop) you must get some damage to enemy ships with your planes or else you get an unsporting conduct warning/penalty? Thanks for any help with this.

    Dido and Canarias. My thoughts.

    ( Emphasis mine ) I do think Dido is a challenging ship. I am still learning how to play the ship. But in this game, there was 3 of us Didos and we were all at the top. So this game does show that it is very possible to be successful playing Dido. ( Being top tier does help, however )
  12. Many thanks to player support! I opened a support ticket and this issue seems to be fixed. I do not know if problems will return, but for right now my Edinburgh is back in port and I can play battles. I tried 2 coop battles with Tier 1 ships and everything worked ok. I will try my Edinburgh in coop next.
  13. EDIT: Many Thanks to players support! This problem has been fixed ( Jan 24, 2022 ) 1. Saturday night ( Jan 22nd ) the game would not get past the battle queue screen - just got stuck there for 45 minutes. The Leave Queue button did not work 2. I had to close the game out in order to get past the battle queue screen. When I reloaded the game over an hour later, my Edinburgh was still listed as being in battle. ( this was still the case as of the time of me writing this - over 2 hours later ) 3. I can not start any new battles with other ships ( I tried to do coop battles with some of my T1 ships ) Nothing happens. All of these problems started Saturday Night Jan 22rd - at around the same time other people were posting in the forums that they were also having problems loading into battles or being thrown out of ongoing battles. As of right now, I can not play any battles. The game does not work to do that. And my Edinburgh is still listed as "In Battle" - even though it has been hours since I was got stuck in the battle queue.

    NA Crashing to Port, Disconnects, Freezes in Battles

    EDIT: Many Thanks to player support! This problem has been fixed ( Jan 24, 2022 ) yeah during this time I was stuck in the battle queue screen - for 45 minutes. The leave queue button would not work. After I quit the game and reloaded the game I noticed that my Edinburgh is listed as still being in battle. It has been well over an hour. I am not sure what is going on? Will I get my Edinburgh back? P.S. Will I get my Edinburgh back?? I am afraid to take another ship into battle at this point. May-be I will try a T1 or T2 ship. EDIT: When I tried to play another battle ( coop ) with a T1 ship, nothing happened. I could not play a battle. Then game did not even try to load into the battle queue. Edinburgh still "In Battle" several hours later. UPDATE: on Jan 24, 2022 this problem has been fixed. I do not know if the problem will happen again but many thanks to player support for fixing this problem. I can play battles now and my Edinburgh has returned to port.
  15. EDIT: Many Thanks to player support! This problem has been fixed ( Jan 24, 2022 ) I just had something similar happen to me. But thankfully I did not get an AFK penalty EDIT ( yet ). For some reason my Edinburgh is listed as still being in battle even though it has been well over an hour. I certainly was not AFK. The game left me stuck in the battle queue screen. The leave queue button would not work. Prior to this happening the game was working just fine. This screen shot was taken over an hour later. My Edinburgh is still listed as being in battle. Whenever I get my ship back, will I get an AFK penalty? I was not AFK at all. P.S. Will I get my Edinburgh back?? I am afraid to take another ship into battle at this point. May-be I will try a T1 or T2 ship. EDIT: When I tried to play another battle ( coop ) with a T1 ship, nothing happened. I could not play a battle. Then game did not even try to load into the battle queue. Edinburgh still "In Battle" several hours later. UPDATE: on Jan 24, 2022 this problem has been fixed. I do not know if the problem will happen again but many thanks to player support for fixing this problem. I can play battles now and my Edinburgh has returned to port.
