Unable to destroy a ship

Anyone else have this issue?  I was in both coop and random matches and had this happen.  I'd get a ship down to about 150 health and continue to hit them but no damage would count.  ???  In coop I switched ships, finished one off and then went back to the one I couldn't kill and finally my hits counted and it destroyed.  In the random match this happened the ship was stuck on 150 hp and I shot him about 15 times with nothing.  Another ship came along about 30 seconds after I gave up and killed him with 1 shot.  Is it a health graphics issue?  My hits were showing as being counted just no health was coming off.  ???

Go to settings. Go to the general tab. Check Detailed Ribbons. Now you can see if your shells hit, shattered, bounced, or overpenetrated.

If you are firing HE it could be module saturation.

Yeah, I've been playing tiers 1-3 and some only have HE.

You should have AP rounds after teir 1. The only ships with don't have both HE and AP are the British cruisers.

I believe it happened in tier 1 matches.  I was thinking it was the way the shells were hitting since the first time it happened I was close to them, but after that when it happened yet again I was farther out.

Aim for another part of the ship.... you seem to be hitting a third of the ship that can no longer "receive" any sort of damage...

 

I see you are new... perhaps you could go to youtube and learn about more of the game mechanics.. including DAMAGE SATURATION.... you will be a better player in the long run if you watch a crap ton of videos on ships, ammo, captain skills, modules.etc etc....
good luck man, hope you stick around...:Smile_honoring:

Damage saturation; a very annoying and unrealistic mechanic.

Damage Saturation:

Modules and hull sections have a HP pool, once it is gone, it will no longer take damage, only fires will effect it.
