Hi I just found a strange glitch/bug.    As I was coming near a Island I saw 2 torps near the opposite side, I noticed they were not stopping and went through the Island.   Can anyone confirm this and if you can give me the name of this map so I can give it a try on a test server. 20180427035300_1.jpg

Looks like a cv drop.

It was probably the CV but no they were inside.  I just didn't take the screenshot in time

Based on the spread of the torpedoes, it looks like a torpedo drop from the carrier, probably panicked by Defensive Fire.

I've seen TBs drop on land and have the torps emerge from the island. I have seen other times where torps just pass "under" an Island.

The first seems to be "working as intended". The second is just a glitch. Stuff happens.

But there was no Ship in the area with Defensive Fire

Problem is the shape of the torp indicator in the water if you look closely they are triangular, those I thought were deep water torpedoes, or am I wrong on that.

Well since according to Wargaming Radio waves go through islands , torps and naval gunfire should too. I look forward to more of this.

It doesn't look like the torps are diverging. My guess is that the CV was pushing the limits, and the middle two torpedoes registered as dropping on the land.

I watched the replay can confirm Trops go through the Island from one end to the other 

Trops going though ISLAND-Chung-Mu_22_tierra_del_fuego Trop.wowsreplay

Have to watch for Chung Mu's and their transphasic deep water torps that can pass through islands.

Skarp is also correct on the glitched torps, what I call "phantom torps".   Those do go under islands, and conveniently, through botes.  They'll keep sailing past the map borders and on to the next map.   I've seen them a few times.  Not sure why they don't disappear at the end of their range.   They just keep going and going.

I actually saw torps come through an island in a game not too long ago.  I saw the DD torps coming past an island I was behind.  A couple of the torps were lined up with the island but they didn't stop at the island.  They came through uninterrupted.  Luckily they weren't lined up for my ship.  I don't know if they would have actually done any damage or if they were just a phantom representation of torps that actually stopped at the island.  Its not something you see everyday.

Considering CV squadrons can just fly through islands as if they weren't there without having to turn to avoid them this doesn't surprise me at all.

I actually expected a thread about new Asashio benefit; "now your torpedoes ignore islands!"
