  1. This was with base detonation %: no signal to increase or lower chances. Not having Magazine Modification 1. All base modules (just got the ship). Trying to run a survivability build with a 17 pts captain, nothing special anywhere. Except that I equip "Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1" in slot 1, instead of the traditional "Main Armaments Modification 1". (I like to retain some AA mounts during long games that have lots of HE spam. It kind of work, I still need work convincing myself). This is supposed to be very uncommon, because detonation mechanic doesn't kick in until you were dealt 25% damage since update 0.7.2 ( source: https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Detonation ). But, the squadron launches torpedoes that hit "consecutively" due to the low speed and relative angle of the ship. The first two torpedoes did drop my health slight below 75%, and the third torpedo triggered a detonation. Thus, a 100% devstrike for Lexington. And a super early detonation for me, not even 5 minutes into the game. This is the first time something like this happens to me, and the first time am I seeing this in-game as well. I think this is a bit broken; detonation mechanic that occurs from 100% HP while receiving a single strike, was it really intended to work like this? What do you guys think? Have you seen something like this before? Please, don't make this post about how CVs are OP; such a rare event can't really make a convincing argument. Although admittedly, this "incident" could point in that direction.

    Detonated in COOP !?!

    Brushing off snowflakes and grinding campaign in COOP this past week.... Yesterday I got detonated. The detonated symbol showed in kill feed above mini map, but no detonation issued in chat. This morning, guess what, yup.... Just as I was swinging my other side torps to kill 2 ships (1 on each side) my French destroyer got detonated.... @Hapa_Fodder, if WG can't take the detonation out of COOP, at least put the award in to get the det flags.
  3. My DM Dom just got nuked from 26km by a Mizzu at the start of the match. Ouch. At least the Mizzu driver felt guilty for it, and the team got the W in the end w/o me. And he or someone gave me a +1 for being a good victim. Here's a LARP re-enactment of the event... [edited, too hard] Reply to Edit - Bummer. But that's how it felt! :-/

    Well, that was unexpected.

    Here I thought Bots were filthy cheaters and immune to detonation. May only be Co-Op but avert your eyes kids, this isn't pretty.
  5. Today I am going to showcase my experience in the Tier 8 Royal Navy Destroyer, the Lightning. Overall a decent ship, but my experience in it was "something different" compaired to other ships I have played.

    Fun and engaging, Redux.

    Thank you to the battleship captain who detonated me in my Edinburgh last night. It came just at the right time - at the very end of the match, when we were about to lose anyway and it wouldn't have changed the outcome. Plus the salvo would probably have wrecked me even if the big D hadn't happened, so that was all good too. I am pleased with the acquisition of ten Juliet Charlie flags, as I was running out of those. While it was good to have plenty of backup in capping A and B (perhaps too much so in A; we were never contested), I note that there is still a subset of the northwest spawning team in Neighbours that persists in going up north of C to waste its time, get cornered and die. I wish people wouldn't do that; the number and proportion of times I've spawned northwest and been on the losing team is starting to get depressing.

    wth WOWS!?!?

  8. Well it happened again. I am finally ready to play WoW again and I load up a match. Within the first 2 minutes of this match, I am detonated. Man!!! That is sooooo much fun. I am sooooo glad detonations are a part of the game. I was thinking after being eliminated in the first 2 minute of this match, let me sit here and watch for another 18 minutes while others get to play because that is sooooooo much fun. Hey WoW! You guys need to get rid of detonations cause they really make me want to quit the game. I have invested in this game so I am a paying customer. You should care what I think. Another suggestion...offer matches without detonations. If you guys can't live without this ridiculously, soul stealing, demoralizing and unfun feature of this game, the least you can do is offer matches without this awful feature. Rant over. Peace out.
