Hi

 

Is this new?? When my shells hit a ship sometimes it says 'Torpedo protection hit'

Hi

 

Yes!!

Spoiler

https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/game-updates/update-085-rogue-wave/#gameplay

 

Update 0.8.5 brings updated mechanics for damage infliction to ships’ bulges, secondary battery and torpedo tube modules, and to the completely destroyed parts of a ship.

Now, when a shell penetrates a secondary battery module, a torpedo tube module, or a completely destroyed part of a ship, the dealt damage will be 10% of the maximum shell damage value. 100% of this damage can be restored using the Repair Party consumable. However, shells don't affect AA modules, and these can only be destroyed by explosions of HE shells, as before.

Have you ever received a "Penetration" ribbon for hitting an enemy ship's bulge, but the hit caused no damage to the enemy's HP? We are now introducing a new ribbon in order to avoid misleading our players. For penetrating a torpedo bulge without hitting the next layer of armor, a special ribbon will be given to a player—for shells, bombs, and rockets.

We've also renamed the torpedo protection armor elements which used to be called "Ship Plating." These are now called "Torpedo Protection."

Yes, it's a way to explain some of the zero damage "penetrations" you had before.

Only question left, why WG added "torpedo protection hit" for bombs... its not like battleships have torpedo belt on deck or somesuch, while the same icon could be used to show AP bomb failing to penetrate armored deck.

I have odd feeling ricochet-after-penetrating-torpedo-belt uses the same icon
