Can WG put the magazine detonation rate back to how it was before?

It seems WG has recently massively upped the chance of magazine detonation. I'm seeing them all over the place, and tonight my Saint-Louis has been detonated 3 times in 6 games.

 

PS please buff the rudder on Saint-Louis. In some improbable oversight, the devs seems to have modelled its durability on cream cheese.

You know, I was thinking the same thing @ColonelPete as I hadn't noticed any particular increase in the number of detonations.

Play CVs. They are confirmed by WG to be impossible to detonate.

Spoiler

:Smile_trollface:

 

Seriously tho, no joke. CVs can't be detonated according to WG.

Parallel on topic. Thanks! That question has been bugging me since I started this game!

We, (actually me)

Declare following: WG is guilty of manipulation with detonations.

I find WG guilty and our victim according to doctor report suffered stress following:

1 day  - very high level of stress

5 days - normal level of stress

20 days - temporary stress (from time to time)

Verdict: DangerousDave2k will open ticket and wg will credit him 2000 detonation flags, so he can play game.

Random things are random, though. People are just too good at noticing patterns - so good that they see them where there are none :Smile_trollface:

Not that long ago I got 2 supercontainers in the same day, from two adjacent containers... suffering 3 detonations across just 6 battles is much, much more likely than something like that. And yet - both can happen.

I'm surprised you people haven't noticed an increase in detonations. Several people have mentioned it during in-game chat in the last few days. The rate of detonations I've seen during battles (not just my own) certainly seems to be massively increased since the last patch.

Got two words for you: Confirmation bias.

I've not noticed any increase in detonations.

 

@DangerousDave2k I'm surprised you hadn't noticed that every one of the French cruisers to Saint Louis has a rudder made of flaky pastry, because they very much all do including Henri IV, Last Stand isn't a completely stupid choice on them all.

Haven't been a victim or witnessed any detonations for a long while now. The amount of times I've been detonated accounts for ~1% of all my games.

Some players are unhappy with this mechanic though and are vocal about it.
 
I'd suggest to use Juliet Charlie flags or buy this, OP: https://www.amazon.com/Electro-Deflecto-Unisex-Foil-Size/dp/B01I497JAM

 

Sorry, could not contain myself.

Yep, going to bust out the (now very large) pile of Juliet Charlie flags I have.

 

I didn't find Charles Martel or Algerie to have such ludicrously fragile rudders as Saint-Louis. The rudder on Saint-Louis is trollishly bad. Not looking forward to Henri if that's going to be more of the same.

*Detonates in the first game*

 

On the topic though... I haven't been detonated since..

we get suiciding DD`s as well. then i had 2 T10 BB´s who detonated in the same game. the first one was because of a  enemy shima suicide rushed him 

the shima ofc had no chance of surviving but HEY WG rng rewards the braindead players these days.

If "several" people out of a couple hundred thousand has a bad streak over a couple days...

 

then that means nothing whatsoever
