Had that aswell with the Henry turrets getting disabled out of nowhere, without getting hit...

 Put it in the bug reports section of the forum, following the format in the section.

Well there is videos of CVs who managed to torp themselves. Apart from that I wouldn't know of any ship that travels faster than its torps which would be the ultimate requirement to torp oneself. In reality some torps could be programmed to run in a pattern to maximize hits on a convoy formation.

Not to put salt on your wound, as a player who missed a RAM on a broadside half speed yamato... I can understand that silly things can happen..

oh.. and do you remember there is a single AP shell firing fort in Killer Whale?.. yeah.. I got citadelled by it..

anyway :)

 

I watched the video, which has clips in it from my all time favorite film..

but I couldn't understand how it happened.. really?

It seems like some of the torpedos just started their journey like behind your ship..

how does it possible??

There was an Udaloi that managed to torp himself on the US server a couple years ago. With video evidence. Basically he had flags and speed boost going, and when he launched on the turn his [edited]waggled into one of the torpedoes.

Please report such things in our bug forums, otherwise it might get lost here in the gameplay section. Do you have any Replay for this?

I have managed to torp myself in the past. I thought most low tier DD's were capable of turning into their own torps.
