Event Missile Test Bug or FEATURE?!?!

Well I’m pissed as all hell to begin with at the event but then this happened. I’m testing my third missile but it hits the ship and doesn’t destroy it. Just like the previous failures I assumed it had a fault in the missile and chose the warhead as the defective part. It turns out the MISSILE IS ACTUALLY FUNCTIONING?!?!? WTF HOW DOES THAT WORK? I TESTED IT 4 TIMES OVER TO VERIFY. NO DESTROYED BOAT. AND NOW I HAVE TO GRIND AN ENTIRELY NEW MISSILE? WTF

XDDDDDDDDDDD ( don’t take offense but i was actually wondering what would happen if one clicked that option for a good missile lol)
