Ok so a few minutes into the game and BAM a DD shell hits me and insta kill.

 

 

Tell me this is a bug?

Or is it the HOOD Factor?

It the detonation. It means that his shells hit your magazing and exploded.

I know its unrealistic for heavy cruisers to explode sometimes, but it happens....

(You can get 10 flags for 100%chance to not to detonate again, though)

So your saying that it is the HOOD factor.

And not a Bug, the same as all the AIs seem to only hit your rudder or burn your ship constantly?

Ok its a 1 in a million shot at the angle he fired from but ok.

Thanks :)

what cruiser are you playing and which DD killed you?

 

from the picture, it looks like kuma to me

kuma has extremely thin armor just like DD, so its not that hard for DD to make detonation

It's the Hood Factor!

 

I think a new term for magazine detonation has been coined.

Do you have a screenshot of your personal score? Because this happened to me once. I was playing a Furutaka, fired a salvo at an Atlanta, HE shells of course. Only one shell hit but the shot killed him instantly with more than 20k damage done. I received Devastating Strike but the enemy Atlanta did not received Detonation, which is weird.

Could be a hit on torpedo ammo; that's more likely than a pen hit in the gun magazines.

Yeah, if it's HE it's more likely the torp ammo I suspect because HE generally won't pen to a magazine.
