Don't you hate it when you are sailing along at the very start of a match, unspotted and spotting no-one, minding your own business, without a care in the world... and then... Boom!

Have seen a but of that.  Is that a cheat?  Because that should be impossable.

Luck happens.  Not necessarily the shot itself, although RNG helps. but sometimes it's just the conditions that made it possible.

It isn't a cheat but is instead situational awareness not showing even though you are detected which I believe is internet lag. I had it happen last night, undetected for well over 30 seconds and I had changed course and three separate ships fired at me and destroyed me yet the replay showed SA triggering. I think the moment you fire that you are targeted by multiple ships is another aspect of this.

Did you watch the replay...those spotter plane attacks can take quite awhile to traverse the map before they hit you & it only takes a moment of being spotted if they happen to have it up already & you are lined up good.

Not saying this definitely is the case as there's been many similar threads about this lately so could be a bit buggy.

A few years back I fired a random salvo on two brothers across satans buttcrack.  Dev struck a myoko.  It was glorious.

There’s some weird things going on . Last night a couple times I was locked on to a target and my guns just shot dead left no where near the target . I stop using it ,

It was an instance of a BB being in just the right place at the right time and sending a salvo out the instant I was spotted. RNG blessed him and every one of his shells hit me at 23 km with citadels. I occasionally get lucky and take out a cruiser with one salvo too.

The funniest thing I've seen in this game was back when detonations could occur with no prior damage. A teammate sent a blind shot off at the spawn, just goofing around, and detonated an enemy ship. Both teams were like, "What just happened!?"

I was just referring to the "unspotted" in your OP...it made it sound like you hadn't been.

BBs against cruiser has to be the #1 source of Dev Strikes in the game.

DDs torping DDs hiding in smoke might give them a run for their $ though.

I think that I didn't notice the spotted icon come up temporarily and the salvo was already on the way by the time it came up again.

I have run into this on and off many times over the years. I finally got smart after that one and turned on Instant Replay in GeForce Experience and can now look back and will hopefully have proof that SA doesn't always show to the player.

There is something amiss recently as many people have noticed. Among other things over the past few days, I have been shot at without SA indication or any other targets nearby so no, I don't think you missed it.

Related to the server sync issue?

I also last night hit a NC with a salvo point blank with like 3 shells in the non saturated rear part of the ship on purpose and got zero damage . I only remember and got upset because I was playing naval Battles was at 39,500 damage and needed 40,000 for the star and I got nothing and 10 seconds later the NC deleted me with his next salvo . It upset me because I fell 500 short but I know I hit him good saw an explosion .
