Scenario.......

Bow tanking a reversing Moskva at 8-10 km, hit him a bunch of times and zap him down to B/T 1000 and 800hp.......... He decides to engage after a Shima only got one torp in me, survival mode, comes in port side to at 4km almost 60 degrees to me and I let the forward guns go........ Mid ship the rounds go in and it registers 6 ricochets, does this sound possible at all? Seems a little fishy if you ask me but who am I to know about what things/add ons are in this game.

a replay is better then the word description in your situation.

and replay are automatically recorded many many many many patch ago (30 replays since the last battle)

Look inside your WoW folder, and look for  folder "replays", exit your current game, and replay the replay to find out the one

post it here

Almost 17k games played and you don't know that the last 30 replays are saved in a folder for ages now?

I watched it twice and you pushed way too aggressively for that point in the match to an area where you couldn't easily maneuver. I think had you stayed put  at that island maybe you avoid taking that torp.

Also, your hyper focus on the Moskva had you completely ignore a fully broadside BB not much further behind the Moskva that you should have citadel mutliple times.

The shots in question at the end were high on the hull. Doesn't look like he was 60 degrees and much closer than 4 km at that point. I can see why there were ricochets but it looks like unlucky RNG that you didn't get 1-2 overpens.

Maybe someone else has a different view on it.

Interactions between shells and armour are 100% handled by the server, for that reason no amount of "add ons" or other cheats can change that behavior. If doing so was possible, then everyone would cheat all the time by modding their DDs to citadel battleships, mod their armour to be immune against all kinds of damage etc, and have you seen that happen? No. You'd come a long way by just sitting for a minute and thinking about it instead of spewing it on the forums.

If you got a ricochet the angles were probably worse than you think. I run a mod that shows the angle of the ship you've locked on and I'm often very surprised at the angles. You might also have had some RNG come into play to cause the shell to arc and hit at a bad angle.

LOL...... Just never seen such witch craft that all six shells that you can see go through the main structure can lead to zero damage and all ricochets...... But thanks ill keep closer watch from now on..

Kremlin's AP shells don't have any worse ricochet angles than any other ship. So you're saying that one person being unlucky by shooting just above the autobounce boundary without noticing somehow proves something that 10,000 players, after hundreds thousands battles, did not notice? Crawl back into your conspiracy theory cave please.

Hey

I believe you and have been complaining for a while now about BB ricochet's and over pens.  Played a game in Kremlin during last seasons CB and shot another Kremlin dead in the water about 8 KM or so in front of me and all 6 shells landed short, next salvo of 6, 1 over pen and 1 ricochet.  Played her last weak and 6 km from another BB and all shells dispersed so badly, it was worse than most of my German boats and I have well over 1 million ship XP on her.  She is NOT acting the same as it did when it first came out.  I really question game manipulation and quiet Nerf's to BBs in general.  I catch flack for it, but something is happening in this game.  No wonder CC's are talking about the death of BB's.

 

Pete
