Do detonations now come in bulk and pre-determined?

Ever since a few weeks, I started to notice something peculiar regarding detonations. I could swear something has changed regarding their implementation around the same time the full-health detonation was removed from the game. Previously there was indeed always a chance that you could detonate regardless of map or gamemode, but nowadays it seems that the chance is calculated differently. In short: either there are no detonations at all in the game, or there are plenty on both teams. And nothing in between. It seems that "detonation" is now a parameter like "cyclone", that gets enabled at random at the beginning of the battle.

 

Anyone else noticing the same behaviour?

 

 

PLEASE, no discussions about "detonations are stupid, get rid of them", that's not the point of this topic.

That's a NO from me too... Nothing special happening. I detonate quite as randomly, as I always did and my playmates too. :cap_haloween::fish_boom::cap_like:

Hmm... Don't really observe this, maybe also because lately I play higher tiers a lot and people mostly seem to mount the flag (though the Montana detonation from a single torpedo when I was testing Asashio before release was surprising). Then again the way RNG works clumping of data is completely natural. It would be more suspicious if there was a steady "1 detonation every other battle" rather than "3 detonations in 1, 0 in 20" :)

I have to admit that i have encountered  the same "problem" there are some times were you don't  see a detonation for 40-50 games, then there are some when you see 3-4 detonation in one game. Once i had a game in wich 3 members of my teams detonated in around 2-3 minutes to the point that i said in chat " People stop exploding please".

Hehe yeah @Tuccy... Though that was no comfort at all when I once had a string of 5 detonations in a row. :fish_boom::etc_swear:

 

Yeah, yeah I know... Should have started mounting the flag after the first one, but since the chance is so low it could not happen again immediately right? :Smile_amazed:

 

Eventually tho, I finally did and changed the ship too just for good measure. YAY!:Smile_great:

I always used Juliet Charlies on my tier 10 ships in randoms, not any more since season two of clan battles or the ranked season before that. Nothing changed. Detonations happen very rarely and with a random frequency like they always did. Sometimes you don't see any for weeks, then 3 in one battle or you detonate in two consecutive battles. That's normal for random events.

I've seen this peculiarity as well and when i observe the first detonation i make sure not to catch any detonation-causing hits in cruisers (my destroyers always have anti-det and battleships are less susceptible), but thats not completely fool proof & i have in fact been detonated by a single hit @ about 70% health once. 

so yeah, i have this suspicion too for a while now, especially reinforced by the low occurance of games with only 1 or 2 detonations

I typically see a detonation every now and then and typically it's single events, not in bulk. So, I'd say, coincidence.

Had a weird match last week where 3 ships on each side detonated, it was a complete fluke I assume. 

Hhehehe! Yeah, those things happen... Had an odd match a while ago, where nearly everyone in both teams except for myself and an enemy Giulio suddenly seemed to drop-off the game right in the middle of a hottest melee. Well, we both then rather sportingly sunk them all in turn and my team won, when I managed to win our duel and torp the Giulio at the end of it (both teams had some 7-8 ships still alive at the time when it happened). Fun times. :Smile_teethhappy:

Or, as Admiral Beatty would have put it, 'There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today'.

I haven’t detonated anyone in bloody ages, I think it is obviously rigged. ^^

 

I did notice however a decrease of detonations, this however is most likely a rng thing.
