Nine torps hit in a single salvo and no sinking. Then six more hit a second ship and again no sinking. I did sink a Shimi but that was with guns. Those big BBs can sure soak up the damage. This makes me wonder who so many are so afraid of pushing caps. These guys weren't. Of course it was 3-1 too. I held my cap until the time ran out though.

BB's are afraid to push because of Snargfargle, you monster.

If I could do this consistently, wouldn't it be nice. :cap_yes:

Yup, BBs can take a beating. Trust me though, try going against more than one or 2 ships and especially at high tiers your health will just evaporate.

However, I like to use that tanking ability. Park myself in the cap and dare the reds to take it. Race out at the beginning of the match, get their attention, then kite away, heal up damage, all while distracting them from the team (hopefully) doing something useful like capping. A BB has presence, a full HP BB will scare off many players from forcing a flank, cap, etc. Heck, I'll even take my AL up against a few DDs. Already this ranked season I've had to be the one chasing DDs off the cap. Just hit rank 15, so I'll have to be more careful in my MT. But, allow yourself to get flanked or focused by a couple ships and you're going down quick.

Depends on the BB and if any area of the BB is damage soaked - I am willing to bet several hit damaged soaked parts of the BB.

 

But a great game none the less!

Great game, man. Congrats. And, yeah. I've had weird torp experiences. Once hit a Shimi with five torps from my khab in one salvo and it still didn't die. Guess it's the damage saturation thing.

Great game, congrats! 

I would guess the part of the BB you were hitting had hit its damage saturation point so subsequent torps didnt do any damage. 

Just a guess...
