Just had a game In my yolo emilio, snuck up on a minnesota and unleashed a full torp volley on him, hitting the minne for 77k and deleting him outright, yet no devastating strike and again in the same game hit an iowa for 50k, same result, no devastating strike, also in a game yesterday I hit a ship (cant remember what ship) taking about 80% off his HP and a good 5 minits latter finished him off with less then 1k health left and I got a devastating strike then.

Is the award totaly borked atm or am I missing something

The Devastating Strike achievement is currently bugged, and has been for some weeks now. Sometimes you get it, and sometimes you don't. I myself got the achievement yesterday for deleting a Gneisenau with my Kitakaze torpedoes, but failed to get it in the battle just before for blowing a Brindisi out of the water. Other multiple instances of not getting the achievement have occurred these past few weeks.

Yesterday I got a dev strike by killing a low hp target (about 10%-20% hp). It was quite a surprise...

Perhaps you had hit him before in the battle, and nobody else had hit him later, before you killed him.

Once, few weeks ago, I got a devastating strike for hitting a < 1000 hp cruiser. But some minutes before I had hit the same cruiser for a large chunk of HP, and nobody else had hit him after before I gave him the final blow.

Perhaps, but it doesn't change the fact that it is bugged...

I've wondered the same thing about Devastating Strike recently, we cant see from yer screenie above, but afterwards on the battle leaderboard mouse over the BB an see if it was awarded a 'Detonation'.

 

https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/topic/146474-ranked-sprint-epic-defeat/

See my screenie, I think there is a new type of behaviour (quite possibly probably related to one of the new Commander skills) that when a BB takes over-whelming torp damage the damage ticks over in to 'Detonation' and the ship simply explodes.
That makes sense, to me at least, but I'd enjoy it for while it lasts cuz theres no way WG will let the behaviour stand. Especially when BB Jocks all start whinging about it on the forums.

Perhaps they just improved it.

Simply pay 2500 doubloons to unlock the devastating strike package
