... Those torpedoes can hit a friendly ship multiple times, they do so little damage that they won't turn pink :Smile_veryhappy:

When you rush against a half health BB around the island and dump all your ikea torps into him only for him to still live with a quarter health

"Get X number of torpedo hit ribbons"

SHIMA: All fifteen hit, first two kill, 13 don't count.

HALLAND: *laughs*

If I had a "10 things to fix in WoWS" list that would be acted upon, this subject would be on it.

You have a stat for percentage of torpedo hits, but what is described here makes that stat bogus.  I can see if you launch all 3 Shima spreads and torpedo 2 of the first spread kills the target, at the VERY LEAST all the torps in the first spread should count as hits (if they do hit).  I can see the 2nd and 3rd spread not counting, because you shot more torps than necessary.  However, when you don't have "single launch" ability, then you don't get to choose whether or not to "waste" those extra torps, so it shouldn't count against you statistically.  Just my $0.02 on this particular subject.

Oh, I have always regarded that stat as complete and utter garbage. Just the fact of how many torpedo spreads are fired purely for the purpose of area denial (zero hits obtained out of zero hits expected) trashes it completely, even before we get to this factor.

That's true, as well, good point.  The whole thing of meaningless stats that are nothing more than rocks for stat shaming jerks to throw would likely be worth an entire thread.

I believe those threads have already been written and explored to exhaustion.
