Detonation, incorrect & too often?

Detonation

 

It was gone for a while (turned of even i think), but I noticed (the hard way) that it's back. However, it is still broken:

- I think I detonate to often (a WG trick to get you to buy the detonation flag?)

- I detonate taking a torpedo on my BB's torpedo belt. That belt is made to catch the torpedo, how in the hell can I detonate? I purposely turn so it hits my BB's belt...

 

As I recall, torpedoes explode outside the ship, the massive pressure creates an opening. Modern torpedoes create such a void under the ship it might even break. But the WW2 ones did not have that power. So technically speaking, I don't think your ship can't even detonate because of a torpedo.

 

So:

- To my knowledge, it's not correct to detonate because of a torpedo.

- If you take a torpedo on your belt, you should certainly NOT detonate

- I think I detonate to often (3 times in the last 7 days, yes I play a lot)

 

I think they should turn it off again cause it is not working as it should.... what do you guys think?

Nope. It was always there.

 

You detonate because your ammunition depot has been hit. It doesn't matter what hostile ammunition caused this.

Statistics. Sometimes they work against you.

  • detonations was never turned off, it is just rare
  • even rare stuff can happen more than once during a short time
  • it does not matter how you think stuff works, it matters how it works in game

RNG if they hit the right spot .. I've had 6 months without a single detonation; I've had 3 detonations in 5 battles .. just a matter of luck :Smile_coin:

Last one on January 2016 for me but I use anti det flags on all ships since then.

First Ranked Battle tonight in a Fiji, forgot to equip detonation flag and was promptly detonated by a Sinop, first salvo, firing blind into my smoke from 16-17k.

 

Sometimes you just have to take it on the chin!

detonation flags are dirt cheap in armory, so use them at least in ranked

I remember .. somewhere in 2017 .. I fired with my Kongo at an enemy BB and detonated an (unspotted) DD that was sailing next to it :Smile_trollface:

one rainy day on this past winter,

My belowed kitakaze got hit by evil ze german shells!

She got hit on the very sensitive parts and got detonated..

I thought.. hey at least I got signals for free now! yeay!

 

Before next battle..

I was dressing her up...

and I though.. oh come on! what are the odds to get detonated twice in a row...

guess what.. :) kaboom!

 

before the next one..

!Nobody can detone thrice in a row.. !

oh yeah baby..! I guess someone up there said, "Hold ma beer!"

I still regret because that was a very expensive mouse!

 

RNGesus giveth, RNGesus taketh away mate!

oh and this is my detonations after 5086 battles!

means I'm having a detonation once in every 159 battle :)

I'm pretty ok with that.
