I waited three minutes in queue for insta-detonate!

St. Louis; Protected Cruiser, or Piece of Crap?

 

Waited nearly three minutes in the queue, just to have the first shell to hit my ship cause detonation. How is this a thing?

Congratulations, WG, you've set a new record in how quickly your game can [censored] me off (was my first, and last, match of the weekend)! THIS is why I refuse to give you my hard-earned dollar!

It's bad enough dealing with idiot team mates, toxic chat, AFK'ers, TK'ers, and all of the other [censored]'ers in the game. Then you throw stuff like that into the mix. I am so frustrated that there is a very good chance I will not play this game at all for a while. I may even uninstall it.

Detonation signals. Mount them. Don't detonate. Problem solved.

Wear the flag. Use the module. Getting detonated is a choice.

Honestly, I don't get why people get so pissed about detonations.

They are infrequent enough and happen so suddenly that I'm usually left laughing when they happen.

They only thing I would like to see changed is if a player is detonated in the first few minutes of a battle they get thrown a little bit of XP on top of the flags as a sort of consolation prize.

I remember when I first started playing and I got detonated and got an "achievement". I thought well cool I got an achievement and then read what it takes to get one. Kind of sat back and to myself well that is actually bad!

I heard that there are signal flags which prevent that from happening... :yes_cap:

 

I am aware of both module and flag. Thank you, though.

Am I expected to assign the first module and flag slot of every ship I own to removing a game mechanic that shouldn't really be there to begin with (in my opinion)?

 

Don't bother bringing up real life examples of detonations. This is not real life. There are plenty of examples of where realism has been sacrificed for gameplay.

I already know RNGesus hates me. Him and MM have been screwing me since my first match.

You know, it's not so much the detonation itself that infuriated me so. I've had it happen before, and it wasn't exactly a happy moment, but it didn't bother me this much. It's more about the circumstances around it.

First match in a while, three minute queue time, first shell detonates. Game over. Least satisfying match I've ever played.

And I think I got a crap ton of them, courtesy of a supercontainer. Don't worry about me for a while.

It's your fault, you played her wrong and deserve to be Detonated:trollface:

 

Dets are stupid.

 

So hitting a ship's magazine with big chunk of steel traveling at mach 2 shouldn't have any effect? #nofizzixisgudfizzix

I find it odd that the dominant ingredients of your 'Latest Posts' list are annoying gifs and salt, and yet you somehow still think you are not salty. Try contributing useful opinions more than once in a while, rather than just making troll-posts. Edited by McDoob

To be fair, I did mention that I'm feeling quite frustrated at the moment. I guess I am guilty of being a bit salty myself. That does not mean you are any less guilty of making troll-posts.
