1 Shot killed by torp?

So there I was casually cruising along in my BB..... wait no I wasn't. I was in my South Carolina, engaging a DD at close range (because, you know, team mates), dodging torpedos; coming under air attack and all, when finally there was 1 torp from a bomber that I couldn't dodge. So I checked my health... 25k. "No problem. 1 lone torp from a Hosho to hitting my bow head on won't hurt too much" I thought to myself.

 

 

 

 

Oh but how wrong I was. That lone torpedo hit me and BAM! 24,710 damage received, insta killed.

And yes it was only 1 torp, I checked the post battle report (can provide if you guys really want it).

 

Looking at the stats for the Hosho's torp bombers, they can only do 8567 damage, only 1/3rd of what I received from 1 single torp.

Is this game like WoT whereby you can be insta popped if the damage is done in the right spot? Or should I be posting this to the bug report section?

You can be instapopped by one torp hitting the magazine, yes. Mind showing the post-battle report?

there are 2 places you never want to be hit with a torp - the Bow and the Stern!! there is no armor, so basically you had your bow shot off

We'll never know for sure unless he posts the battle report. He's not fought many battles so he may not have noticed getting a flag for the mag det.
