Could we do something about detonations?

I don't care about removing it or something, and am rather ambivalent towards the arguments centred around the detonation mechanic. 

However, I do think a few things need to change. 

  • Please consider lifting the flag cap for detonating. 
  • Make the explosions bigger. 

 

Now, the second thing is more of an ascetics thing, and something of pride. If I'm going to detonate, I want everyone within 15 kilometres to know about it. 

As for the first, I detonated three times today, but only got 10 flags. When you detonate once, at least you can come out of it with some flags to feel better about the whole shebang. Any subsequent detonations go unrewarded, and that simply doesn't sit quite right.

Yes to bigger explosions. As for the 10 free flags, I don't think it happens that often, at least from personal experience.

I support both. I'd love to be able to earn multiple Det Flags per day regardless, and when I do go out in a Detonation, to go out in a catastrophic blaze. I want my ship's icon to explode on the minimap and also form a sky-high explosion that is visible to all ships (can be toned down via graphics settings for those still running on potato computers).

Yeah I see ammo rack Detonations in Tanks far more often than I see Ammo Magazine Detonations in Warships

I have no issues with this. Especially the explosion part. Give me more bombastic explosions WG! :Smile_izmena:

I agree to both, but last I heard they actually were going for something like the second suggestion but will take a while as they want custom animations like turrets popping off and other crazy stuff.

Three times?  That's painful.  What ship were you driving, out of curiosity?

Atlanta, three times in a row. 

The first time it happened, I wasn't really upset or anything, just loaded into my next battle and went on with my life. Second, I was mildly perturbed, and thought that my luck was terrible. However, I didn't mount any flags because what are the chances of it happening a third time? 

Very good, apparently. To my dismay.

Wow, I can imagine that happening.  Especially if you faced someone that read LWMs detonation studies.  They are hitting you right where it can send your magazines critical or gut your machinery space.  I try for that, but rarely succeed.  Frankly, Atlanta is one of the ships I try to always sail with a det flag.

 

3 is still a lot - bad run of luck...

I really don't see why there's a cap on flags for detonations, WG themselves says they're very rare, so what's the issue with rewarding multiple flags a day if RNG decides you must die?

I like both ideas, especially the second one.

 

WG's been working on their explosions - first with ground targets in operations, then recently with fires and effects in general. I'm hoping they make detonations even more explosive. And I'd love it if they made the explosion louder for other players. I want it to be seen and heard from across the map.

Yeah but this isn't the typical detonation thread. This one basically just wants eye candy and flags, not angry ranty demands to ban the game mechanic because it's extremely unlikely and causes players harm.

I approve as well! And if it's a battleship that detonated, I want flying turrets! Pillars of flame! Shockwaves and mushroom clouds!

Yup lets make the Detonations even better and lethal while we are at it. The damage radius should be 5 KM from the ship and damage all ships (friendly or foe) equally.  I mean.. Yeah..Fun and engaging but now even more realistic.
