Flooding.

Have WG changed the dynamics of flooding?

 

I seem to be getting more floods than ever before... 14 torp hits giving me 8 floods in one game.. 6 torp hits and 4 floods in another...

Most likely just RNG doing you a favor?

In every game I have used Torpedoes today.. including Mutsu.... flooding is almost 1 for each torpedo.

If there's a bug in the way how flooding probabilities are calculated then BBs are affected the most.

 

Expect a hotfix in under a day.

It's not a bug... it's how it was before WG decided torpedoes don't rip holes in a ship...

Gods, I hope not - if this effect is real (I've started to think it is), it's very welcome after so long...

If i remember correct jpn torps has a really good chance to cause a flood and not all ships have a Yamato torp belt ^^

Floods happen when you hit a BB outside of the torpedo belt. 

I never get flooding when I catch the torp on the belt.

But especially US BBs, with that all-or-nothing thing going on, will get floodings.

And you can get double flooding, too. I play Kaga as well... :Smile_hiding:

 

Dunno about cruisers, I usually do not eat torps with those.

It didn't just happen in my Japanese Destroyers...

 

My Gearing, my Benson, my Z-46 and Chung Mu.... all seem to have had an increase in flooding score....

 

 

I shall now see if this was just temporary as I begin my games for today...

 

 

 

Good start with only 7,000 players....

While I truely appreciate better flooding chances as a torpedo user, when on the receiving end I still insta damage con any flood I can. Interestingly not because of the damage but mostly because of the reduction of speed that comes with each flood. Depending on ship type it is the secondary effect of fires (increased visibility) and floods (loss of speed) that can get you killed really, really fast.

I have to say, it seems like they upped the flood chance... could be by mistake, or improved feature.. Flood chance should be up due to the new rules, but I fear for the Shima... High flood chance + extreme alpha? I smell a coming correction.

 

While I don't mind it, maybe it should be looked at still.

 

edit: good catch @Migantium_Mashum

I don't see any Liquidator achievements. 

Guess floodings remain a minor inconvenience like fires.

 

(you probably just happened to hit a lot of bow/stern parts of ships which always cause floodings)

okay. As it happened, I did. They were quite farmable, especially against nations with short action time of DCP.

Just send 2 torp waves with >10s between....easy permaflood and bye bye BB :)

 

I havnt noticed any difference in the amount of floodings after CV rework, but I find Liquidators impossible to get.

Floodings strictly depend on which part of a ship you hit. Bow or stern = always flood. And you hit those quite often.

I haven't had a Liquidator since January 2019, 3 weeks before 8.0 came out.

 

I am hopeful that with this change, which I have also witnessed in my Mutsu, Scharnhorst, Tirptitz and Schors, it means my next one won't be far away...

The short flood duration makes Liquidator tough to get now. The question is whether there's been an increase to the flood chance lately. I don't keep track of the floodings so I'm not sure, just noticed I too end up with numerous floods on enemy ships, often DC:d, but perhaps a bit more than before. ..or they've always been this numerous and I just now noticed it.

Have they removed the achievement altogether? I can't find it on my profile....

Been playing Shima, Hindi, Drake and Vesterås lately and I can tell you there has been no change.

Bow or stern hit = 100% flooding. Torp belt = no flood. Same as its been since 0.8.0. 

Also i almost lied. Didnt know I'd gotten it post 0.8.0, and guess which class.....*drumroll*

I dont see any change (see above), but we can always hope.

Best bet is probably playing Hosho and deliberately not killing BBs as fast as you can :Smile_trollface:

Ive told WG in this very forum over a year ago, that getting a Liquidator is virtually impossible with their changes. Reply: we are looking into that. Well, guess they need some more time...

 

thx to @DFens_666 I found the topic:
