I'm not WG but I'll answer for you: detonations aren't going to go (too many people like it despite it being a negative mechanic in general) and radar would need the spotting mechanic getting reworked from the ground up.

I don't find detonations game breaking you have ammo racks in WoT and it doesn't kill that game for me either, as for radar don't care either way....

since the rate is higher for DDs, I can see cruiser and BB mains happy with the mechanics. The removal of a flawed and useless mechanics should not be based on the opinion of a majority that benefits from it

Detonations happen and will happen, Radar works just fine (not broken), if you are running a ship that has it.

which is why i'm asking for an update.  

radar is not something they can fix overnight.  

 

and whoever made the ultimately bad decision to implement the detonation mechanic as it is might still be with the company, and be really stubborn.  :p

Try playing World of Tanks for a little while and you will end up being grateful for WOWs because Ammo Racking tanks is far more common than Detonation in Warships.

Umm that's how many things work, majority rules... lol

And Detonations are a realistic element Wargaming has left in the game.

If this be treason make the most of it.

well, if majority rules, you gonna get only BBs in game with every ship perma-spotted

 

Now, I play mostly DDs. My det rate is 1.8% (159 dets). This is considering that all my DDs use the det modules and I have used many det flags (I have currently 100 saved for the next rank season). Also, I have played thousands of games before the det rate was increased.

So the det rate is def higher than that.

 

It brings nothing to gameplay and it is skill-less RNG. Find me one good reason to have this feature in-game.

 

The radar and hydro fix is also something that has been asked for a while, as it clearly does not make sense in its current form.

Confusing.  You ask for realistic radar, but don't want realistic detonations.  (Our ships survive many more battles than ships that detonated in real life did.)

Are you kidding? I cant even get WG to have the common courtesy to answer a question on how Radar really works much less when it might be fixed.

Do you want realism ? want realistic torps too ? or the removal of the not so realistic repair party ?

 

Detonation ruins game-play at best, and radars allow a ship to sit behind a rock and get other ships killed. So it encourages passive game-play.

Game-play should be paramount. RNG reduced to its minimum
