Got detonated but still had more than 75% of starting HP

Hi There!

 

I had a game with my Haida where I got detonated by a broadside salvo from a Kongo at close range. When that happened, my HP bar was still green and close to full HP.  My question is how could that have happened when the game was changed not too long ago to prevent ships with at least 75% of their starting HP from getting detonated?

chances are, you were hit by more than one shell.

Not really sure without screenshots.

The first shell likely took a chunk of your HP and the following shell detonated you.

Now, just to make sure, this is a "Detonation" from a single shell at nearly full health (without repairing... if Haida has that) right? Not a "Devastating Strike"?

I would've loved to have a replay of the game to prove this but unfortunately I do not. So to be clear, yes this was a detonation. I got flags afterwards. And yes I was hit by more than one shell. So you're saying that multiple shell hits are evaluated sequentially even if they come from one salvo? That would explain it. I'm just disappointed as I thought I wouldn't get detonated from a single salvo while I had more than 75% of my HP.

Everyone has replays now in a folder in the game file. It happened a patch or two ago & keeps your last 30 battles.

Find your World of Warships folder in the C: drive and then go to the replays folder.

Damage is applied first and then the detonation chance is checked. You took damage that took you below 75% and then the detonation happened. What this 75% rule does is reduce but not eliminate full/near full health detonations.

If this is true though, then ships can still detonate from the first hit they take if the damage from that is more than 25% of their starting HP.  And here I thought that's what the fix was made for: to prevent players from getting detonated by the first shot that hits them.

Correct, it is damage followed by detonation so it can happen.

The fix was made to prevent a full health detonation by that one random shell that strays into your magazine from what was mostly a miss by the enemy player.  (which is highly frustrating)

If someone hits you with 25+ % damage, and then one of the shells happens to detonate your magazine.....  well then they got you.
