I haven't looked too deeply into it but it's my understanding that the HE blast area can be so large as to potentially affect things that seem quite distant from the point of impact - especially on a destroyer.

But I'm only guessing from what little I know/have researched on the subject.

Same thing happen sometimes with torpedoes.

*Torp hits the front half of the ship*

Game: Steering knocked out!

Me: Err if you say so... :Smile_amazed:

That is almost as bad as the time i was hiding behind an island and a wave of torpedoes came past, some hit the island BUT 1 went through the island and hit me.

I get a lot of ping and latency issues. I was following an allied Bismarck yesterday when I say him get hit by a torpedo. It didn’t even hit him from my view, detonated a short distance from his ship, yet still lost hp.

To say nothing of all the times I see shell hit flags come up before I even see the shells land.

In How it works: HE shells, WG say that the explosion of HE shells is actually cube-shaped, not spherical.

 

Also this game is not a boring naval simulator (quoted WarGaming). Unless it's ship designs, don't compare the mechanics to real life.

Yeah, It may be revealed one day that WOWS DDs were actually simulating cars.

Yep. Just changed it. 

Captain Smugface on his Texas with 80 AA rating isn't a thing anymore so he had to go!

Well done. You already countered my next stupid question.

”how do you get cube shaped explosions?”

Easy. The formula for a sphere yields a number cubed.

Legit?

Seems legit?

Seems legit.
