Hey everyone!

So lately, while playing Musashi I started getting a lot penetration hits, that deal no dmg.

Is that something new, that I missed? Is that due to the caliber of the guns? Or is the structure of the enemy ship over-saturated? I dont get it.

Over pens deal dmg but some penetrations dont?

Some times the AA guns, the lifeboats, torpedo bulges and dirt on the deck eat the shells, shells did penetrate but the wrong things.

Ahhh okay, but does that mean that if I hit a secondary armament mount, for example, it is destroyed? Or only HE spam effectively destroys them?

Id like to add, Turrets tend to eat damage aswell. Doesnt necessarily get incapacitated / destroyed.

AA, main guns, secondaries can "eat" shells, either shell penetrated and detonated within, while dealing not enough damage to cause destruction/knock out or in case of smaller mounts, overpenned and dealt only minor damage to the mount and then not encountered ship hitbox afterwards.

 

Other option would be spaced armor, either in case of torpedo bulges or as in case of French cruisers - outer plating potentially arms AP fuse, but shell detonates before reaching ship hitbox to register damage. Alternatively fails to penetrate armor behind, again, for 0dmg. Or ricochets off and leaves ship without encountering anything of value:Smile_smile:

You shot a Frenchie didn't you? :P

 

Those things are made of magical armor. However, their armor does not protect them against HE spam quite as much.

It happens to my Yamato a lot. Typically for me is 3 pens and 1 overpen for ca 5k dmg :Smile_facepalm:. I belive main guns and torpedo bulges are the main reason for 0 dmg pens.

and I guess the funnel of wooster eats a lot of AP shells.. because it is interestingly hard to cit that thing when it shows broadside.

sometimes the thinnest of armour can cause a ricochet when a Musashi is concerned, it's all part of the fun with the beast

It is space armor, torpedo bulge, modules eating damage and being destroyed, the ship is saturated that it can no longer get damaged in the same position that it got hit 10 times! 

Overall i have no problems with this, it works the same with wot, heat can be absorbed totally by space armor and tracks, modules can get damaged without the vehicle itself receiving any damage!

You should see a pop up of a secondary mount with an X when you destroy one, just like when you destroy AA mounts.

I once hit a DD i knew had full hp that was sitting in smoke (Akatsuki) with my Yukikaze torps. My torps should do 20k+ dmg but i only did 8k to the Akatsuki and the torp didn't even kill it. Sometimes i kill a DD with one torp and sometimes i do this low damage. What is the reason for that?

Damage saturation, yes, it can and WILL happen even with single torp hits. DD bow/aft have very small hp pool per segment and its not uncommon to land hits like you've did.

It's bacially a crew member left a broom on deck, and it tanks some battleship AP 

similar to the film Fury where a bit of wood on the side of a tank ricochets a Tiger shell but armour doesn't, maybe those American tanks would have been better if they had been made out of wood
