Have this weird battle today, super hydro-like Izumo and a ultra survivable Benson, took me 3 torpedo hits to kill him and total 3 torps damage only 11183hp. Is this normal or enemy team is hacking?shot-17_11.03_21_39.34-0388.thumb.jpg.6020bd74b9c23376b9bf30b9d729dd3e.jpg

damage saturation... ship health is spread across the ship when one section hits zero it no longer takes damage. all three torps probably hit the same section

1. The Benson is only 12k hp left.

2. First 2 torps hit nose and body. Yugumo torp is like 23k max damage so even with damage saturation wouldn't he already dead? The 3rd torp hit from 2nd set from TRB

1. he was already damaged in the areas you stated.

2. Damage saturation denies all damage but fire and Flood.

Final Conclusion;

It was Damage Saturation, not a hack, cheat or mod.

So why would the 3rd torp kill him? That must be the most unlucky thing I have had lol he took at max 1 salvo from Charles Martel.

Tell us how they could be hacking the game. Why, is everything instantly a hack.

Because torps deal a ton of splash damage. The 3rd one either hit him in the center section of the hull, or close enough to splash damage it.

 

And one torp hit on the bow/stern of a DD with those IJN torps, if they're at full health or close to it, is enough to saturate the section and not kill the DD in question. It's a valid tactic... If you know you're going to eat torps, take it on the nose or tail and you should get out alive. As long as you have most of your HP when hit.

No, it hits the mid section, which supposedly saturated

Maybe you had a little desync issue and your torpedoes did not actually hit where you think they hit.

You were just unlucky this time.

Yes. It's a hack. Stop playing.

 

EDIT: OP doesn't want explanation. So why bother?

Just stop.  It's damage saturation.  Take a buddy into the training room.  Have torpedo bots.  Have your buddy focus fire your nose with HE, then go run into torpedos thrown at you.  You will see how.

Seen this a lot lately. I'll watch my shells hit bow and midships but end up starting a fire on the stern. Other times I will register a hit when all the shells clearly (visually) missed. Tougher to tell when a visual hit is actually a miss 'cuz it could have landed a bit long.

Sadly, I've seen this before.

Damage saturation is a MORONIC game mechanic when it comes to torpedoes. Unfortunately, WG doesn't seem to understand this.

It actually rewards stupid players by encouraging bow tanking, lack of situational awareness, and other dumb play. Not to mention penalizing players who spent the not-inconsiderable amounts of skill required to land a torpedo these days.

Don't expect it to be fixed, ever, though.

Once took 3 torps with my Fletcher. Was pretty close to my max health of 20250, survived with ~150-300 health. Was expecting to die so I zoomed in and was focusing on shooting the guy who launched them. Figured I’d only took 1 until the guy started complaining in chat.

Not a hack. Hacking a ship from dead to alive requires hacking into game servers, not the local game client. A player can't perform such hack without accessing WG data center.
