You should not show your Detonation point.

 

Detonation are skill based... and are here to stay.   "Fun and Engaging"

 

 

:facepalm:

 

 

I always feel bad when i see this happen to someone in a match.. Such a crap mechanic

I was under the impression that  torps didn't cause Dets.

/shrug

I learned something today.

I've been detonated 18 times. Only 2 times were those detonations not in a BB. Once in my Fletcher, and once in my Minotaur. The remaining 16 times I've been detonated were all in my German BBs, 3 times in the FDG. And every time I was detonated in a BB was by torps.

Idk, was detonated by a single shell in my maiden voyage of the T-52. Also was the first game of the new year. Started it off with a bang. :teethhappy:

Last time it happened to me it was from a single torp from an Atago when I was in my Tirpitz.

Well, you could hop into another BB and be detonated by another torp in the first couple of minutes.  (Actually had that happen in back to back games in the Ishuzichi and then Imperator Nikolai).

I can confirm it is possible to get detonated from full health by a single torp on the nose of a Colorado.

 

Still got the flags to prove it.

Exactly. It's always fun to OHKO an enemy ship, and it means I can be engaging another enemy that much sooner. :trollface:

Lol, a few months ago I made the mistake of angering RNGsus by pointing out that I'd only been detonated once in a little over 1000 battles.  That weekend my full health Nikolai proceeded to get detonated by a single Izyaslav torp.

 

Still only been detonated 4 times in 1288 battles to date, so can't really complain... :hiding:

no ship is immune to a det. First time I played Kongo detonated from 1 torp.

 

On the opposite last week I detonated a full health fletcher at 15km with 1 hit from VMF 6",

 

Its a fact it can happen so its a mechanic that is here to stay, just the way RNG blesses or cruses you.

Detonated an almost full health Hipper last week with a Tirpitz HE shell from about 15kms away.

 

All I could say was wow !

I was once detonated by taking a single torp up the stern of my Scharnhorst once...

 

Sneaky little DD snuck around our fleet and got behind us without anyone knowing. Killed me with roughly 3/4 of my health left, then went on to kill two more of our BBs before being finally hunted down by a cruiser lol

 

To this day, I think its my one and only detonation I've ever had, not counting the one or two in co-op. =P

I think I'm actually quite unlucky as I've been detonated 57 times in 3300+ plus battles...and I am very careful to make sure I am running the Juliet Charlie (100% reduction to detonation) flag anytime that I run India X-Ray or Juliet Whiskey flags.

The Germans don't consider attacks by a lone destroyer to be any threat, or they'd have a tighter defense. An analysis of the plans provided by princess Elizabeth has demonstrated a weakness in the battleship. The approach will not be easy. You are required to move within 9 kilometers, and the target area is only 2 meters wide. It's an ammunition magazine. A precise hit will start a chain reaction that should destroy the ship. Only a precise hit will set off a chain reaction.

 

Also that DD captain used to bullseye wamprats in his T-16 back home, and they're not much bigger than two meters.

My favorite was a Hail Mary from my KBerg, at another KBerg 16km away, front turret only, over an island. :)

Don't answer the OP's question, or you'll jinx yourself, and find out how unlucky you can REALLY get lol.

Nobody ever complains when they detonate someone else. "Boom, free 90k damage, I'm the best"

 

It's only ever a problem when they're the one that gets detonated. "What, 90k damage from one hit, crap mechanic!"

I felt a little dirty when I detonated a Minotaur when playing my Missouri. I got over it pretty quick when I realized that RNG was going to bone the guy anyways since I was going to land a bunch of citadels  and probably delete him regardless.

I don't like it when the enemy gets detonated either, just feels like RNG killed them instead of me.

 

Really, why is this mechanic in the game?
