Survived 3 torp hits in DD?!

Hey guys,

 

Just had a game in the Leningrad DD where I took 3 torpedo hits from an Fubuki, two in one salvo and one a few minutes later and survived with 1000 or so HP left!

 

Is this just lucky damage rolls or maybe a bug of some sort? Very strange either way.

Cheers.

You probably benefited from damage saturation. This is where all the hp allocated to a particular part of the ship can be used up before the ship as a whole runs out of hp and sinks. Extra hits to a fully saturated section of the ship do no damage, there are videos on youtube of people using it to survive whole waves of shima torps.

Damage saturation. There are videos about damage saturation on YouTube, perhaps you should check them out.

Actually, damage saturation happens in every game. You know how you get 33% damage for HE shells, and then the damage drops by half? That's damage saturation as well. 

 

The only reason you've seen COMPLETE damage saturation just now is because it's hard to do enough damage to one section to drain all of its HP without damaging other parts and sinking the ship.

Interesting, thanks for the clarification mate.
