Has anyone else had detonation in a BB

 

Was playing in Musashi and detected torpedoes, turning towards them, one struck then another struck and bingo - Detonation 60000 hp gone

Yes, I've been detonated in BB's and have detonated them too, it's not common, but it happens. Seen shells and torpedoes cause detonations on BB's, but torpedoes seem more likely.

short: yes

long: ... u might ask the hood. in that case it even only took a shell, not a torp (yep, happened ingame before as well).

not sure in which one, but i think on one of the "how it works" vids there's xplanation as well:

Detonations suck and nobody needs them - but they suck across the board, no discrimination going on.

Except that it's way easier to detonate DDs.

Let me guess - took a torp under the #1 turret?

Yes.  Happens once in a while.  Best to protect your magazines.

Yes, even by other BB shells (twice iirc)

Even quite recently, with @MortenTardo

Maybe they suck, maybe nobody needs them, but without them you wouldn´t have this awsome moments when you blow up an enemy with 75% of his life.

 

Sure it also can backfire and you can explode in an instant, leaving you with a bad taste in the mouth. 

 

What people don´t like about it is the RNG factor, but to be honest what are the chances you get a detonation hit?

 

For me it feels like 1 in 100 games.9 out of 10 times it happened due to being in a position where the enemy had a good shot at my side. So far 2 times blown up by torpdetonations and both times i would have died anyway. 

1 out of 10 times where i would say, damn i got detonated with 75% of my life and got a lucky shot out of the blue.

 

So 1 in 1000 games a detonation where i would say that was heavy BS and in the end it´s random. Ranked or Clanwars you get that detoflag and forget that such a mechanic ever existed.

Yes, everyone detonates every once in a while.

That doesn't feel awesome. It's 100% luck.

It feels awesome when I stalk someone, ambush him and dev strike him with a well-placed salvo or torp spread.

Sure thats awsome too, but more the standard thing that happens anyway. The reason why i think it´s awsome? 

 

When you fire with the lo yang one salvo from 10km range at a khaba and get him turn into a giant fireball, then you scream in excitement. Especially because this khaba was unicum and nothing is more annoying then a good khaba player.

 

The reason why detonations and RNG mechanics, also dispersions are nice to have is, because they bring life into the game. Something you don´t have everytime, in case of detonations a rare occasion wich can turn out to be really nice for you, in case you blow up the enemy or really bad for you if you get blown up. RNG is the spice of videogames. Else you just have repeatable actions and nothing special or new. The same things over and over again.

So you screech in joy when RNG decides that you just sink a good player with a fluke.

 

Uhuh ...

Well, sometimes you lose and sometimes the other side wins. Just don't take hits below your turrets = no detonation.

Probably because its so much more common to detonat in  your DDs that you hoist the Anti Detonation Flag and or have the anti detonation module..:Smile_hiding:

count your self Lucky at least detonation can know only happen after you have lost 1/4 of your health,  Half a year ago it was possible to detonate with the first shell that hit you .

Actually there is discrimination. CVs cannot farm detonation flags, they can only dish them out to others.

It happens. I remember it happen to me while driving my Missouri and more recently in another BB, but both times it wouldn't have mattered anyway as I was near death (I mean, if you're at like 25% hp and detonate by a torp hit, but 6 more torps on the way, the 10 deto signals are actually a better outcome :Smile_teethhappy:).

I checked my awards earlier today due to something unrelated and I gotten 10 deto awards in 2000 games. It doesn't happen often.
