My first game of the day and my Roon gets hit with detonation in the first 2 minutes of the game from an unseen BB.  So not only am I out of the game but I will get a 50-60k credit penalty for having the nerve to get hit with the detonation.  Obviously the 100% bonus today is to encourage players to get on line and play more.  So much for that incentive as I'm posting this and logging off.

It's like being pink. If a detonation causes that much of an emotional hijacking, you have some serious constitution strengthening to work on. You think a professional cyclist is going to abandon the Tour de France if he gets a flat tire in the very first stage?

 

Our society is mass producing the most emotionally fragile and hypersensitive people it's insane.

You know they have flags and modules that cut down on this right? If you do, and still don't run them and got detonated I don't feel sorry.

I got detonated in my Des Moines 2 nights ago after doing just 6k damage and was thoroughly amused and just laughed it off with my Div mates. 

 

Detonations are so rare I tend to just laugh at them. No point in getting upset, just get back out there and enjoy 10 free flags.

 

The only ship I regulary use them on is DDs, since they have the highest detonation rate with their vulnerable magazines.

PSA: Run detonation flags on ships you're trying to get a first win bonus on so you don't get sent back to port early with a potentially bad bonus.

I received 2 detonations in my Scharnhorst.  Not the usual ship that I use to farm Det flags.  :fish_boom:

I wish I could save that good RNG roll number from all the detonations I cause, and apply it to supercrate chances.

Got detonated in my GK with 60k health remaining, railed against the unfair gods of game mechanics, then the next day detonated a full health NC with one torp from my Z-52 and reveled in the greatness of the game mechanics.... things balance out...

Don't let it ruin your day, oh I guess it already did. How do you feel when you lose a coin flip, your chance of losing a coin toss is much greater than a detonation. I'll bet it doesn't bother you as much though, losing a coin flip that is. Your mind controls your emotions. Just smile collect your signals and hit that battle button. Hope you decide to have a good day.

5 times in my Mutsu. I think WG is a little too historically accurate for my tastes....

My honest favorite is when you're like 1k hp away from death and they detonate you giving you free flags. God I wish that happened more often lol.

I find it odd that you never see a thread that starts...

"I had a really bad game. The first red I saw, I detonated. What kind of ..."

Why do you suppose that is?

I've detonated twice from the aft magazines in my Udaloi. I literally saw the shells hit the aft section of the ship.

 

I was annoyed, but at the same time I saw what happened to me, so I moved on.
