So I was shocked to see it the other day.  And I've looked into the handful of threads about this online.

Just really curious if this was a one-in a million shot and/or a neglected bug in the armour that a few people mentioned?  Do the numbers make sense and that this should happen.

 

Included 4 pictures in the spoilers that I think show the shell that caused it.

Lol, probably a little bug. I've seen something similar happened with another guy, who had a DD and citadel a Alaska.

My thoughts going into this thread “probably another person claiming they got deleted by X ship from XX km away when they just didn’t notice a close battleship.  Bet they won’t have a replay”

me after reading “oh... it would seem we have entered a parallel universe where the (armor) points don’t matter.”

I have noticed some ships have some small armor weak spots that could lead to a citadel hit in a situation like the one the OP mentions. But it would be very rare to have happen since you would have to strike the armor just right to pull it off. And not sure how much the shell holes in a ship weaken the armor or if they don’t in the game. Since in theory you could possibly have sent a shell through a hole in the BB made by an allied BB hitting the ship before and could allow your shell better access to the citadel. But as I said while possible in real life, not sure if the latter is possible in game.

Heck of an idea,  but I wouldn't ever think such a thing would be in game.   heh

It is a very forward thinking of an interaction and also makes the "numbers/mechanics" less straight forward and more complicated for players to understand.  And also extra testing/work time to make sure no weird interactions/balance can occur...    A lot of work=lot of $$$ for something people might not notice or comprehend.
