Hello. I got a curious question as this has happened to me once so it may be a fluke but im not sure.

In one match in my tier 9 BB i got killed in 6 volleys by a smolenks spamming HE shells, now i know useing HE has been a spamm mechniced used by a lot of people and with the recent changes that its become more popular to do

But how can 6 volleys take out 71k in health from a smolensk that is hideing behind an island in smoke shooting through 2 islands, not around, not over but through and wiping out a BB.

I watched the replay of the battle over and over again and he had pinpoint accuracy, Not one shell missed every shell hit.

Now i understand some people are that good but how can it happen through 2 islands, i did not thin a smoklensk had that good of an accuracy at 18k

6 volleys shouldn't kill your BB

 

If you have the after action report, it might be helpful looking at what else may have damaged you at the same time

You most likely to several hits in the citadel from a BB in addition to the Smolensk volleys.

Replay? This would help us answer your question definitively.

Mathematically not possible... BB can sink a Smolensk in less then 6 hits...

While some BBs have zombie heals that makes HE spamming useless.

Replay or it did not happen... Detail report will only support but not confirm your claim...

It's the attacks that people don't account for that really smack people around.  Smolensk isn't going to take down a high HP BB in 6 volleys.  Something else smashed the OP.

 

@Kagenomure  Attach the replay to the thread.  We can see what went on.  I'm betting it's at least another BB, possibly two or more, that saw your broadsides and blew you out the water.  You were probably too focused on the Smolensk when some BB(s) off to the side were the ones that really did you in.

The only other thing that can take down a high HP BB in short order outside of BB AP shells are torpedoes, but those are very distinct with all the warnings associated with them.

Let's do some math based on OPs claims.

Smolensk has 1800 max damage with a HE shell, which is 28.800 per salvo. Six salvos is 172.800 damage. However, that assumes all shells hit, penetrate and citadel the target. Since OP is in a battleship I'm going to assume that no citadel damage has occurred, which means 57.600 max damage, if all shells hit and penetrate for 1/3 damage.

What battleship was OP in that had 57.600 max hitpoints or less, that faces Smolensks?

Another claim made by OP, that "Every volley started a fire" ...

I find this claim also incredibly dubious, as fires cannot be started on a section that is already on fire, and for six volleys to start six fires, with 'every shell hitting' the Smolensk driver would have to have perfect aim, perfect spread and perfect dispersion.

My conclusion? OP is exaggerating 'misremembering'.

Most likely got nailed by another BB but never saw it cause Smolensk used up all his Vram drawing HE tracers... :cap_haloween:

I play the Smol at times and I think the OP needs to listen to the explanations from the people here.   6 volleys did not do in a BB by itself...  

I have to say.................
