I have been getting more and more detonations suddenly, usually 1 a day now for the past 2-3 weeks or so. I used to be at like 1 a month on average. I have just quit the game, having received 3 today, 2 back-to-back. I have also seen a big uptick in them in general. Did WG change something? Something I'm not aware of? And yes, I know there is a flag for it, I used to never worry about them because it was so rare. Any info would be appreciated.

First I seen any complaints on this. The usual normally apply. I have not experienced it but don't mean it can't happen. I do use the Flags so maybe that is what your experiencing.

I had three detonations in FIVE missions while I was divisioned up with two others.

All three in my new Missouri (at the time).

Soooo...   Revamp the upgrade - slot one -- take the third mag protect choice in ALL battleships and cruisers.  Use flags in DDs.  CVs don't need it.

Always use flags when the mission is important..  like when using special camo or dragon flags and don't want to lose the investment.

Take note that Detonations and TKs are turned off in Scenario battles..

They haven't changed mechanics at all.

Honestly, sometimes you're the windshield - sometimes you're the bug.

It's almost like a significant amount of players find this mechanic terrible.

Why not use those flags you get from detonating?

why do that when you can come here and complain about a less than 2% chance of getting blow'd up..... LESS THAN TWO EFFING PERCENT.....??? [edited]

The fact that some sort of detonation topic pops up every few days should indicate that there are a lot more than a handful of players who dislike this mechanic. 

 

Indeed it is just a game. Why should people not want the game improved?

They sure aren't in Co-op, I've been detonated 6 days straight, all in a DD. It's hard enough to run a DD in co-op as it is. Just got today's det, in Ognevoi. It sure wasn't Fun and Engaging™ for myself, nor my team. That's my issue with it, not only do you waste whatever flags, camo, and consumables you're using, it adversely affects the team.

#1 I thought you quit MONTHS AGO...

#2 Coop..... means nothing....

#3  run a flag and it does not happen.... 100% chance of not being det means ZERO chance it happens.... run the flag not the mouth...

A significant portion of the base wants them out of the game, they sure don't improve the game in any way. The only impact they have is a negative one. I truly don't understand why WG keeps them in the game.

That's just a dodge. A very low chance of a terrible mechanic having an impact on your game does not make the mechanic any less terrible. This also ignores the fact that while you personally may only detonate at that rate the chance of detonations impacting your game via other players is a lot higher. 

 

Let's say there was a 1% chance that every time a player in baseball got up to bat he was immediately ruled out after the first strike. Would you really suggest that people should just stop crying and play instead of getting that terrible rule changed?

ZING!

 

A mechanic that we have zero chance against, and can only mitigate by getting shafted by the mechanic, is absurdly stupid. Honestly, it's insulting.

we should remove Devastating strikes..... they happen FAR more often and are ruining the game negatively......
that might sound stupid.... cause this topic does as well,......

I have nothing further to say cause I don't feel like wasting time trying to coddle you snowflakes....
