ok guys...really? 3 games with my harogumo, 3 detonation, 2 of with where dev strike  ( more than 50% of my hp) from  an hindy a henry and a gk shell...it's starts to get frustrating. I know, it is a " fun and engaging mechanic" and that i should mount the flags ( that i would like to keep for ranked)...but it's really starting to piss me off.

Rant over, sorry for the time you spent reading this

Dont play tier10 without detonation signal, and if you already detonated you got that signals so you cant be detonated again that day.

"Needs to keep for ranked"....

Never knew this flag was so rare that it needed to be kept for such a special occasion.

Maybe git gud?

 

A Destroyer who can't be seen, is a Destroyer who can't be shot at.

A Destroyer who can't be shot at, is a Destraoyer who can't be hit.

A Destroyer who can't be hit, is a Destroyer who cannot detonate!

 

Simple? Isn't it?!

You cant be detonated 3 times in 3 battles, you can be detonated 3 times in 13 battles, because after first one you mount that signals and then you are safe in next 10 battle, or you make mistake not mount it and you deserve 13 detonation in 13 battles.

If you got detonated once, then you will have 10 flags, use them and those games you will NOT be detonated, it's really quite simple.

DD's without anti Det flags are very prone to detonations, hardly a mystery, it's been true for a very long time.

You drive the lower tier DD's without flags so you will have PLENTY of flags for the higher tier DD games.

 

All my DD's from T8 onwards permanently have a "no detonation please" flag.

I have 700+ of those silly flags ....  They are VERY easy to get :Smile-_tongue:

This is objectively false - you can be detonated by a shell that does NOT hit you, making your whole reasoning invalid:Smile_trollface:

How will you win a cap without getting spotted by other DDs or radar?

 I guess you're one of those DD players who never shoot, even when they could decap, start fires, or finish a low HP enemy DD. They only camp at the edge of the spotting range and launch endless salvoes of torps. :Smile_child:

Very true.

And while I am at the edge, I blame my team in chat for not going for the caps! Clearly, those bastards deserve to lose!

Welcome to the club OP.

I am glad another sheep woken up and seperated from the "this is fine and totally not a fundamentaly broken mechnic" crowd.

Your thread isn't by far the first on this matter and above mentioned crowd is still far too big, so I fear this thread will get closed/forgotten soon and we still have to wait a few years for WG to maybe remove detonations.

Oh, it's a broken mechanic. I completely agree on that.

On the other hand, it is also very easy to avoid the problem by equipping a flag that you can easily get a LOT of. By the time you have a T10 destroyer you should be sitting on a horde of the things.

And in the lower tiers I don't mind the detonations so much, and it's always nice when you blow up an enemy.

Easy! usually after the cruisers are killed, all BBs f-off to the map edge and then you can cap.... :Smile_trollface:

Dude... you have almost 7k games, so you should have some coal to spare. 

Get a bricksh..load of those flags in the arsenal when you do ranked. Easy.

Well, detonations are indeed a broken mechanic.

 

And having to mount a flag to avoid them is even more broken, if possible.

But, but, but its realistic maaan! 

Realistically a DD would not go anywhere near a BB as they'd get blapped. 

Or, at least they would run that risk if a shell hit them.
