So, can someone please explain to me how you can disable a ships engine with gun fire, but yet you did no damage to the ship? It seems that you must have done some damage to disable the engines, or did you just frighten them into a panic for about 30 seconds or more?

Splash damage from HE rounds can damage modules but not the ships themselves if it strikes either the water adjacent to the ship, or a module that would absorb the damage, like a turret.

Splash damage from High Explosive rounds has the ability do knock out modules without doing any numerical damage.  I've detonated from a missed HE round that did 0 damage.  That was fun.

I wish you had a replay of that cause that's true luck right there.

I would say DMG saturation in the aft part of the ship would cause that, with out pics or video I can;t confirm.

Full pen hits to modules with zero damage are frustrating as well.

Didn't have a replay but I did save this:

This was before they changed Detonation mechanics to prevent it from happening at full health.  First battle in a new ship, first shot fired at me.

Ouch.  What did you do to upset RNG?

If you’re asking for a realistic reason, it is possible to knock out propulsion without penetrating the hull. Hits to the props. 

If you’re asking just from a game standpoint, pens on modules tend to do 0 damage to your hit points. This can be seen with AP shells destroying AA or other modules and doing no damage.

That's, like, an omen, right?

I see an Orion got you...what ship were you in (at 22k HP in the T4 range I'm guessing a cruiser of some sort or another).

Very much this.  DDs and kiting Cruisers go through a lot of that.  For the Cruiser it's worse as most Cruisers don't slot Last Stand like DDs traditionally do.  They don't want their Cruiser circling uncontrollably or dead in the water with broken engines, so it forces DCP use and that can set them up for big problems very soon if they're not careful.

Yup, it was a Svietlana.

Fun ship...My next favorite T4 to the Kuma...helluva 1st battle though.

I took out a Benson w/1 2ndary in the Amagi...I was in binocular view taking on 4 different BBs at once from range & didn't even realize exactly what happened until I looked at the post battles afterwards...he just appeared out of nowhere...set a smoke screen & was gone before he had a chance to slow down in it (had to watch the replay to figure out just what happened).

I heard "you destroyed an enemy destroyer" & I was like...what? Got out of binocular view & all I could see was the grey triangle where he was (about 6 km away) & the smoke around it.

He typed in "well...that's my game" & I was so busy dodging the other 4 BBs rounds I didn't even have a chance to apologize (I comped him afterwards though).

Relevance...it was also a no damage 2ndary hit.

I did that to a bot in PvE recently. It was just before patch 7.8 dropped, so the replay won't help. :(  I thought that my salvo hit and detonated the ship, until I saw the 0/22,160 damage on the end screen.
