Something a bit more light hearted between all the yelling about carriers...

Detonations are supposed to be random, right?  They become more likely the more damage you take but they're random.  So you'd expect there to be tight groupings of them sometimes, and long stretches without them sometimes.

 

So has anyone ever seen a double strike with both target ships detonating?  Was the person who earned the kills immediately accused of witchcraft?  

 

I think the most detonations in a match I've seen is 3, 2 on one team and 1 on the other.  But they weren't particularly close together.

I might have seen it on a stream once, or maybe I confused it with a double devastating strike.

Bonus points if the double striker is ever the USS Black. Considering her pennant number, witchcraft is the LEAST of the accusations you would face.

I have done a double strike, double dev strike in a Clemson recently, but never seen double detonation.  That's a Unicorn level event I would think.

The most epic act of rng along these lines was a double detonation with a friendly kill and going pink thrown in.

A Fuso hurled a salvo of HE into a DD furball that a friendly DD was losing. When the smoke cleared both red DD's went boom, and the friendly DD was finished off by a 14" hit before he could burn to death.

Good times.

Long ago with an Alabama game, my first salvo Double Striked a 3 ship Division that included 2 Kutuzovs that were trying to smoke camp and rotate smoke.

 

On paper, it was a sound idea for a 3 ship Division.  2 Kutuzovs for crazy DPM plus smoke + AA + torpedoes, with an IJN DD spotting.  But they pushed up way too aggressively.
