In 4225 games I get Detonation 35 times, but 5 of them have come in the last 24 hours.

Is there a Jutland event going on I don't know about?

Quick! Give some sailbotes to please the great RNGesus and lift the curse!

 

That's what I do and seem to be fairly safe. Also detonation flags on my DD's.

I was just checking my achievements last night and realised I've not yet been detonated in my 1000+ games yet.

Maybe you're getting my share!

I do play quite a lot of games in a day recently, due to being off work with illness. 

 

Prior to the last big patch/update I was getting a couple of detonations a month, since its release I get three or four every day. Others have mentioned similar occurrences to me.

 

I'd like to be able to flag up against them,but ran out of the things ages ago. Ironically the only way I get them is after a detonation, so I am safe for at least ten games

In 6463 games, I have experience 105 detonations.   :teethhappy:

 

Note: I run the Juliet Charlie flag a lot, otherwise my detonations would be a lot higher.

Out of 2100 games I've managed to blow up (Detonation) 43 times...admittedly I was stupid as for along time in the early days I wasn't using the flags.

 

You live n learn or in this case blow up n learn :teethhappy:

I've had my DD taken out by detonation on the first hit I took in a game... from secondaries.

 

Yeah, secondaries can detonate you , too.

 

Remember, folks, give RNGesus good offerings!

I've had hardly any then got 3 in Belfast when I bought it. One to a destroyer torp :( this ship should be immune to torp with its opness. 

 

Since then I make sure all the magazine doors are closed at all times  (detonation flag) when I stop running the flag I might put the anti det  upgrade on. Not seen an increase though.

 

As a side question is detonation more likely with HE because I'm not aware of ever detonating anyone with AP. Torps  yes. But don't remember AP  detonations.

Checked my stats just this morning and I have 22 detonation badges. Last one is from December so my sailbote sacrifies seems to be working.. And those signal flags.. Mostly flags I guess 'cos my last detonation was in a BattleBoat. :D

​3 more times in the next 27 games I didn't flag up.

 

Since patch 0.6.1.1 or 0.6.1 my detonation rate has gone up from an estimated rate of 1 every 135 games to 1 in every 11 when I don't flag up.

OMG - very next game another one!

 

That's 7 times in 19 games on my Shiratsuya. She's having a terrible time only winning 5 of those games and being sunk 14 times, half of which have been detonations

 

I usually save my flags for ranked and special events but appears I'm going to have to use my supplies up of Juliet Charlie in randoms just to get a decent game with it.

Today in my Fletcher I laid smoke and as usually when in smoke I was going forward and reverse in order not to show my position.

An enemy Friederic shot a salvo in my smoke hitting me with one shell in the very tip (bow) of my Fletcher resulting in detonation.

 

I did not know that ships had magazines in the bow.

 

His "MUAHAHAHAHAH" sounded very annoying to me. Fun and engaging. :)

I was just thinking the same, I haven't been detonated for months until yesterday and today, I gave out and took one yesterday and got detonated twice today

​Oh I don't mind them when they're every 100 games or so, but one every ten games, that's a bit much. It's almost as if they're getting ready for a special deal on signals in the premium shop.

Just gave one to a Tirpitz, one torp hit for 64K damage (would have got other hits if he hadn't detonated). Gave out a couple in last 2 days as well (only played 10 games). Seems to me someone has moved the decimal point on the percentage chance for detonations.
