T7 F. Caracciolo - A taste for Detonation...

Hi all!

 

Dunno if this is some sort of bug (80% chance), simply bad design by WG (19%) or a mere "call of destiny" (1% chance).

But you can see on the left how many battles I had in this game and I can tell you that almost 5000 are on BBs in Random alone (not Co-Op, Ranked, Scenario, etc).

 

In all my "experience" I've detonated on a BB less than 10 times.

I believe I have witnessed it happening to other BBs less than 300 times (that is, counting all my 25.000 battles in this case).

So, of course I don't bother to put EVER the signal Juliet-Charlie on BBs, but in special circumstances like CB or Ranked and maybe not even then...

 

So... can anyone explain to me how in heavens I've managed to detonate already TWICE out of 11 battles played on the Caracciolo?!?!?

Even better, please let me know if it happened to you too.

Thanks

 

EDIT: just to be clear, I must specify that in both cases it was one single torp on the bow

Just as easy as you can pull the same number out of 10000 twice back to back.

RNG is RNG, I remember one match in which 3 BBs detonated of one team.

Why get hung up on the random chance factor?

 

 

The most important point is that you had fun.

... and you talk non-sense.

The goal here is to see if there is potential bug.

I guess I might figure it out one day, but not by direct experience as the ship is as bad as I suspected all along even before its release.

No, i "talked" sarcasm - as in being sarcastic that detonation mechanic WG introduced must be believed by them to be a fun part of the game. Maybe I should have piled in the exclamation marks.

 

As others have noted, 2 individual instances don't imply a bug. The desire to have an explanation (bug) for such chances is just human nature.

doesn't sound like it

did you read me correctly as I wrote:

80% bug

19% bad design

1% mere chance

 

If you say "It's called RNG..." , then it is that 1%

RNG is "the call of destiny"

1% is roughly the chance for a detonation. You should have made it clear about what 1% you are talking. And no, I do not bet on made up numbers of other people.

Yeas, ofc, the numbers are mine and you might have in mind other percentages, but it was clear enough and doesn't change the outcome

It does make a difference, because your numbers are made up.

You are a total contradiction: "you don't bet on others' percentages"...but... "it does make a difference" ...to have them as reference.

Outstanding clarity....

But hey, one thing it's clear at least! You don't get along with my perceptions, that I got it... LOL!!!

It makes a difference if you believe in 0 or 80% bug chance. Please do not interpret too much, you are not good at it,  and stick to what I write.

Trust me. Sticking to your writing was my only mistake, but I take your advice of not interpreting your gnarled mind

When reading is too much for you, I suggest audio books.

No, God, please no!!! It's already an head-aching experience following your writing  after you had too many beers, that a mumbled, blurred speech by you would be the final blow for this forum....

And you even promised me not to do it anymore :Smile_facepalm:
