Let me tell you game starts and some moron gets lucky with a detonation and kills me in 1 hit game over what a [edited]waste of time all because of a STUPID game mechanic that should NOT be in this game.

 

8 games in a ROW I have been detonated so much for it being RANDOM and LOW CHANCE...  

 

I am done with this game for awhile because 8 games dieing in 1 hit because of a stupid game mechanic is not worth my time.....  Take my money elsewhere.

We need to sticky the poll thread the showed that a healthy majority of the playerbase is on board with the detonation mechanics so we can link to it when this thread gets started twice a day.

If im not mistaken, you get 10 -%100 chance of being detonated flags if you do. So you should have 80 of those if you've been detonated 8 times lol.

Also according to your player page:

https://worldofwarships.com/en/community/accounts/1002475201-Dkangel33/!/pvp/achieves/

you've been detonated 3 times, total, in 131 battles.  I see that that page is a little outdated but show me an in-game screenshot with 11 detonation achievements or I'm calling you a liar.

Is it the games fault your too stubborn to put on your flags or play a different ship type? No? Than be quiet.

  Detonations need to stay. They were a real part of real battles and in war games, unlike chess or checkers, unfair and unlucky things happen that have to be dealt with. You do your best; coping with misfortune and succeeding makes for some of the most epic games.

Only three Detonation Achievements?

You were given a Devastating Strike not Detonated. Learn the difference before you complain about it.

From your profile record you've been detonated 3 times in 131 Random Battles. That's only 2.2% and you are only at level 13. You still need to master your game. It'll come just need more practice.

How detonations are triggered definitely needs to change, but the OP needs to learn the difference between a Devastating Strike and a Detonation.

Maybe he thinks the detonation flags give him a 100% chance of a detonation.

Point still stands, it's his own fault that he doesn't read the description or know the difference between a Devastating Strike and a Detonation.

True, I remember when I got my first detonation and the "achievement". I thought well cool I got an achievement. Then I read it and thought "well that doesn't sound good"!

You can only get 100% chance of no detonation flags once every 24 Hours

We have someone else that thinks that devastating strikes are detonations. I will be honest I prefer detonations over devastating strikes which also have a big RNG factor because of dispersion because I at least get some flags, flags that are highly useful in Clan Wars.

So, first, not sure why the person that hit you that early in the game is a moron. Sounds like they're an amazing shot. 

Second, people really need to learn how "random" things work. A random thing can happen a billion times in a row and it's still random. Just because something random happens in a streak doesn't mean it isn't random. This kind of fallacy is how people lose so much money on gambling...

Unless it changed you only get the flags once per day. If it worked that way I'd be running around with all the +5% to detonation flags spamming "shoot me" in chat just to farm the flags for my other ships.

These aren't real battles. This is a silly argument that makes me face palm every time I read someone post it. This.is.not.real. The game is already filled up to the eyeballs in RNG nonsense. It doesn't need even more RNG nonsense that just randomly decided "nope you can't play in this match anymore because reasons"

and there is the same mechanic in WOT and yet no one over there complains about it so why are we special.
