If the game decides to screw over a player with random OHKs, can we at least make it a BIG boom that's aesthetically impressive with a giant burst flame, smoke plume and explosive shockwave racing over the water surface? The smoke plume in particular might just stay for the remainder of the match slowly spreading as a poignant reminder of my or anothers untimely demise.

 

I'd at the very least like to look fabulous if RNG gives me the stinking finger, thank you very much!

Ah Yuro, when it happens to me I just stop. Open Youtube. Play a Yuro video. Zen is returned to the world. But ye I want to see bits of my ship flying all over.

 

EXTREME-ULTRA-SUPER-LATE-BREAKING!

Preferably towards the enemy so I could scream: "It's Just a Flesh Wound!" :trollface:

Imagine seeing that from the other side of the map, then realizing it was your team's Yamato that blew up..

We have bow waves so why not a blast wave coming out from around the ship. That would look cool but ye I do think the explosions need some work. Hell even a well placed torpedo hit used to break my ship in two.

There is blast waves when you fire your guns... At least on the BB's

Aye there is on most ships scaled to size of course but basically that but around the ship extending outwards

And a "scuttle" button, where the crew in an orderly fashion abandons the ship in liferafts, rows to the nearest shore, while it slowly slips beneath the waves?

Right, since RNG apparently hates me these past couple days and keeps detonating me, I'd really, really like it if it were at least a proper boom and not an insulting *poof*.

 

Or finally get rid of this BS mechanic, but I suppose too many n00bs are dependant on it to do any damage so naturally WG will cater to those potatoes ...

I have 23 detonation achievements, that's 0,7% of all battles.
But then again, when were the achievements implemented? Were they there from the start? I don't think so...

 

I have usually flown Juliet-Charlie only on my DD's, but lately have not bothered since I only have 47 of them and want more.. But RNGesus does not want to give them to me.

 

This reminds me of the old "WAA! Draws are stuppid 'cos we no want to play the gaem/objective!" whinefest way back.
Draws were great way to snatch the win from an passive opponent, but now days you really can't do that anymore..
Oh the days kiting away from an enemy who decided to hunt down broken Isokaze instead of capping and thus throwing away the victory. :)

(I have 31 draws so let's be generous and say that the mechanic was removed when I had 1000 battles, still only 3,1% of draws..)

Jesus that Barham went up. Thank you for that as I didn't realise it exploded before sinking. Also that BF1 video looked like the sort of thing we need, less fires and poof more BOOM and gone.

 

EDIT:

You know this is one of those times with WoWs when I actually stopped to consider the lives behind that video of the Barham more than the "game mechanic" that the topic was started about. And then this video began playing immediately after that Barham one;

 

 

We all play it because it is an enjoyable game but I do sometimes think of those that didn't come home when I am in port.

The Barham video is always a bit unsettling. You can see guys flying. It is no more terrible than when some other ship blew up (or bombs landing on some city for that matter), but the visual experience is just that bit more rough.

Probably not people flying but debris. With that force of explosion (you see part of the hull folding forwards), any sailor caught directly in the blastwave of that explosion to be set flying wouldn't stay in a piece large enough to be recognizable. In fact those who were still on the hull of the ship as it blew had the best survival chances ... those who already jumped ship and were in the water probably got liquified by the shockwave in the water.

 

Mean business those physics.

Even in this trailer they got Hoods Magazine detonation (1m in) all we need now is for that type of thing to be in game.

What is detonation still doing in the game?

The last week i had many and guys this is ridiculus. Is this a way to get back at us in some way?

And the 10 flags you get in return... guess what you get detonmations even with the flag on!

Maybe give us a million credits when we detonate, that would make it more easy to take when you are in a full health ship and you get wrecked by a single shot.

Anyway i think i won't take it for much longer here with this happening so often, remove this ... "mechanic" from the game soon.
