How did I do this?

In my K-berg last night I drew a tier 5 game and immediately ended up facing off against an Omaha. We traded shots from range, when I suddenly got a devastating strike, and he was deleted. I'm just not sure how.

I was using HE, got no citadels, and did not detonate him. From what I can see from watching the replay (attached), 1 (maaaybe 2) of a 6-shot salvo hit him (I was firing too close to the bow for my Z turret to see) in the killing strike. I got a Dev Strike achievement, nothing else.

What am I missing?

Had to be a detonation. HE against the paper Omaha armor makes it more likely. Also, if the K-berg gets 1/4 pen (I forget if it does) that also helps. Unfortunate for him, hilarious for you.

My guess, that Omaha was on a C-Hull. You look at it funny and it blows up.

I had so much trouble with that ship until some friendly soul in here suggested to revert back to B-hull.

I get along with Omaha just fine now.

Ah. It just occurred to me that the Detonation achievement is given to the victim, not the player inflicting the detonation. So I got a Dev Strike and he got a Detonation.

Hey Whiskey_Rebel,

That is what it looks like to me, you got the dev strike and he got the detonation. How are you liking the Konigsberg so far?

Great! High RoF, long-ranged, and accurate. Pretty good maneuverability. HE spammer that doesn't need IFHE. Fragile, but you can't have everything.

I would have played it sooner, but the A-YZ turret arrangement seemed awkward. Then I realized that the rear turrets have a 360-degree spin.

Awesome, glad to hear you are enjoying the Konigsberg, you should like the Nurnberg as well then.

The Yorck is where it starts getting to be a slightly different playstyle but personally I love the Yorck =). 

Good luck on your grind up the German cruiser line!

Don’t forget the Makarovburg. :Smile_hiding:

(Also Roon. And as long as one isn’t judgmental, Myogi.)
