I'm getting this done to me all the time, and can't figure out how they do it. I, and they, have maxxed out Artillery (6,464 damage) & Barrage (14,400 damage), and with 3 Engine Rooms, each with 20,000 hp. So it takes 3 x Artillery & 3 x Barrage to take out the 3 Engine Rooms. But - that takes 63 gunboat energy to do that (10+16+22 barrage and 3+5+7 artillery), and a maxxed-out gunboat has 52 energy. Now, taking out 2 engine rooms will give (I think) 6 energy (3 each) (or maybe it's more? 5 each), leaving me still 5 energy short, meaning I have take out at least a couple other fortifications to have the available energy to take out all 3 Engine Rooms.

But with my attackers, they attack with ONLY Artillery & Barrage, destroying no other buildings and not using any infantry. How are they doing that? None of the other attack modifiers in Boom Beach apply to Warships, do they?

ER's give incremental 5 GBE, so the first is 5, second is 10 GBE, third 15 and so on
So yeah they have enough GBE if they get lucky with the barrage

I see that now. Hard to notice in the middle of a battle. Thank you.
