Are these all of the sudden more common now?  On DD's they happen a lot and always have, but last week been getting 2 or 3 per game in cruisers(tiers 6-10) which in the past wasn't a issue.   Guess RNG hates my engine and rudder this week.

In Randoms, co-op or both?

Bots are notorious for the frequency with which they break rudders, especially if you don't have Last Stand on a DD or light cruiser captain. I had two rudder breaks in a randoms game recently in my Nagato, but I'm not sure whether that's an isolated spike or part of a general trend.

To me it is not a new thing, that is why I always take last stand for my DDs and Cruisers.

EDIT: Just to clarify, last stand is not my first choice of 2-point skills but I always end up taking it.

You are probably getting more because you are kiting away more now than previously or are playing less armored ships.

Haven't really been seeing it anymore often then previously.

 

If a Player was misjudging the speed of a target (not giving it enough lead) shots would end up in the ship's wake or hit the stern so.

But like CO_Valle said, if you have the right upgrades it shouldn't happen as much.

I hadn't had an engine or rudder incapacitation in months.  Since the patch earlier this week I've had over a dozen.   Did they change something?  I'd say yes.  But I'm also wearing my tinfoil hat, so that may be influencing my thinking.

It doesn't happen to me that often and I don't run Last Stand on most of my DDs.

Me: drops torpedoes from torpedo bombers

DD: gets hit in stern-steering incapacitation

 also DD: turns straight into second torpedo, sinking him.

Yikes.  I couldn't imagine not using it.....If I didn't run last stand, I'd be dead almost every game in a DD.  I lose my steering and engine from close shots that don't even hit me.  When I am running around in stealth, I don't need it, but if I get into a gun fight, or need to vacate an area that gets enemy infested, last stand can be a life saver.
