I've got a question re flags. The % chance of flooding flags. Do they only work with torp damage>? 

Are you planning to ram something?

On topic: Idk

Knowing the basic flood chance of torps would be nice.

There is a post on reddit about that, but it is very outdated.

Ok and the one for gun calibres also has a % chance for flood too. 4% I think

 

So the 15% one is only for torps

The 4% one only for guns

 

Thanks..

Not sure if I understand you correctly, but guns don't have a chance for flooding.

The flag you are talking about has a higher fire chance for guns and bombs and a higher flooding chance for torpedos.

Do you mean the increased chance for flooding or the reduced flooding damage?

 

All you need to know about the latter is that they are useless. The other ones are quite essential for CV's but not for DD's (they are actually a liability).

Victor Lima (Witherer)

Slightly increases the chances of flooding an enemy ship or setting it on fire. In the flag description it only mentions gun calibres though not torps. This is why i asked my initial qurestion

 

1. Does the 15% flood chance work only on torps or guns also

2. Does the Witherer flag work only on guns or torps also.

Why not. If you throw a small fiat punto through the side of a ship low enough down would it not cause flooding?

There is no +15% flooding chance with Victor Lima flags, you are confusing it with Juliet Whiskey Unaone.

 

Victor Lima gives +4% flooding chance for torpedoes, not guns or anything else.

So 

 

Victor Lima only works on torps

Juliet Whiskey only works on torps

 

Yes?

I think my confusion is that in game, ill double check this tonight. Neither flag mentions torps but the 4% one mentions guns.

All + flooding chance works on torpedoes alone because there is no other way of causing flooding (well, ram, but that's guaranteed flooding anyway).

I'm a bit confused. Rank 1 in the last season, 70% WR in last 60 days... and fails to understand what's flooding / fire and what causes them?! :cap_wander:

 

Guns (HE to be more exact) can cause fires

Divebomber bombs (HE bombs) can cause fires

Guns do not cause flooding

Flooding can be caused by torpedoes

Torpedoes do not cause fires

 

Pretty self explanatory, no?

 

As for specific signal flags:

Victor Lima (witherer):

  • +1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm.
  • +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm.
  • +4% chance of causing flooding.

India X-Ray (arsonist)

  • +1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm.
  • +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm.
  • +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.

Juliet Whiskey Unaone (liquidator)

  • +15% chance of causing flooding.
  • +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.

 

I.. uhh.. I really don't get your question, everything is 100% self-explanatory there already :cap_yes:

In case that's not clear just complete the sentence in your head:

+X% chance of causing flooding (with ship- and air-dropped torpedoes)

 

Ramming btw only causes a flooding when the ram-dmg is higher than 10% of the targets max hp.

That's only really a point with very low speed rams though.

GUNS do NOT cause flooding.

Everything associated with flooding is related to TORPS.

I think a ramming gets 100% flooding. so tht flag is for torps only.

Torps can give you up to 406%, without any boost. :cap_book:

But I get that you mean 100% after all reductions.

Every ram I was involved in caused flooding on both ships.
