Ello all, just a quick query if anyone has earned the liquidator achievement since the flooding rework?

This was not a common achievement before the flooding rework but at least you knew when you got some floods on a dcp'd target that you had a chance. 

With floods only at 30 seconds maximum (though stacked to two) I've found that flooding is dcp'd prior to earning this and that then subsequent torp strikes will remove the target with alpha damage. 

Does this achievement need modifications on the parameters to earn it?

I thought the reason for the nerf was that no BB should flood to death ever again and the Liquidator counter to stand still as a testament to those that had fallen..........

 

My last one was in Feb

*sarcasm* Liquidator ? What is that ? IS that even part of the battle achievements anymore ?

In total I have 45 liquidator... The last one was very long time ago since the buff to D/C, it was already hard to get one.

To this day I've only ever earned Liquidator 9 times and sadly i can't even remember the last time I got one.

I did however did see a CV get one today during a match...

I've gotten one after the rework. I believe it was when I was sailing in Hatsuharu and torp'ed the a Hood a few times. What I find amusing though is that in all my battles I still have yet to ever get a witherer medal.

1 time and 1 time only. I play CVs exclusively pretty much. I don't even really see flooding damage to be honest but ever so occasionally.

That's just sad. In a game about ships surrounded by sea water and armaments punching holes into those ships the least threatening part of the battle is flooding. Stalin approves.

You also overlooked one detail: in a game about ships surrounded by sea water, ships are burning down to the water line.

Liquidator was always a stupid medal because it's 100% RNG dependent. You can't time enemies using DCP when your torps are already in the water. The other problem is that most of the people bad enough to flood out are also bad enough to take 3-4 torps from a salvo and don't take enough damage from flooding for you to earn a liquidator, even if they flood out and die.

I disagree with this analogy...

You could time it, with the D/C cool down buff it was shorter but it can be done. You didn't depend on NG either, before the flood to torp ratio nerfs to current levels. It was 2 torp hits to 1 flood.

Even if the moduale section was DMG sat, you hit the same spot two times you get a flood.

Now, forget it.

I think liquidator is only for CV if they're fortunate.

I can count the number of times I've flooded out on one hand. I also believe I have <10 liquidators lifetime. That says a lot about the reality of torpedoes and where damage comes from in this game.
