The squeaky wheel gets the grease. Those who whined about detonations will now get their cheese and crackers. Random entertaining events are just flying out the window...

No more chuckles allowed. Bah humbug!

Till an actual dev comes out and confirms the MM change, it's horse****. Don't overhype then have your dreams crushed.

Themed Updates sound like an overall loss imo.

We got 4 lines this year, apparently they want to make an event for each of those. That's a lot of extra content just for a new line, and I would rather see it directed elsewhere.

Not that its not a good thing, but it sounds suspiciously like "more time needed for each update".

Well, it sounds like the new content planned to come with the French BB line includes a new port and a legendary French captain.  New ports and special captains have been very popular in the past, so it seems like a smart decision on WG's part to include them in a themed package.

Random Detonations do not, have not and will not have anything positive on this game, there is enough RNG to keep people frustrated that the removal of a completely random happening won't be missed by ANYONE who prefers a skill based hard fought win vs another.

I enjoy random detonations and a when polled a majority of players want to keep them in.

I enjoy them to be honest. I find it adds some excitement to a game that can get a bit slow at times.

Detonations take nothing away from skill. They up the ante for the remainder of the team to show what they've got. Having one or two detonations on a team in a battle is not a guaranteed loss - if that team doesn't lose heart and brings their A game.

I still say keep the detonations but make them something worth watching.

Many players don't care at all about "skill based hard fought wins."  I fight hard for stuff at work.  I play World of Warships to cruise around in detailed model shjps and blow other ships up with cannons and torpedoes.  That is clearly the view of most WoWS players.  Detonating enemy ships is exciting and enjoyable.  Even being detonated is funny most of the time.  I really don't care if it detracts from the "skill" required to win in this casual-friendly game with a small niche market.  None of us are ever going pro and nobody cares if your stats are a couple percentage points low because of detonations.  Besides, what kind of 20th century naval warfare game would this be if Bismark couldn't make Hood explode?

Do the French have a legendary Captain?  I mean they've been getting their nautical asses kicked since the U.S. War for Independence.

Their army is another story, up until WW2 and the politicians screwed 'em over and they gave up.

Out of nearly 430 random battles, I've been detonated a total of one time. One single time. Out of ALL battle I've been in,  co-op, random, ect, I've been detonated 3 times total, that I could clearly tell I was detonated. 3 times, out of over 1000 total battles in this game.

 

Thats barely anything. I get detonated so little that I rarely if ever fly anti-det flags because I feel I never need them. In fact, a couple of my ships even run flags that increase my chance to detonate!

 

Seriously, quit yer b****ing. Dets are fine.

Well, maybe not one as legendary as Steven Seagall or Jack Dunkirk, but I think WG could probably come up with something.  The point is having a special commander for French ships is something most players would probably like.

You people are Manic, where do you see that I was mentioning anything about stats, casuals, that I was completely against them or saying they were too frequent or often.     Most of you need some serious reading comprehension lessons and less emotional responses.   They provide no benefit to the game in my opinion.

For me we will see if there changes are actual changes or just some other fallen promise of what isn't needed in the game. Accuracy in ship design would go a much longer way instead fo made up stats that are fake, and or wrong.

25 times… I got detonated 25 times in 4500+ battles. If we take 4500/25 = 180. Once in the 180 battles I got detonated. I don’t understand the fuss about detonations... It happens sometimes and you get flags for it in return. Yeah it can be annoying I admitt that but he, only once in the 180 battles? Sign me up for that and nothing less…

Very well said.

Life hardly has fixed parameters - throw conflict in and much of the 'known/expected' parameters are thrown even farther out of kilter.

Of course this isn't real life, it's a game. But it is a game based on conflict, and in conflict sometimes the unexpected can happen.

If you want a game based on skill then have all ships the same, all captains the same etc. Then you will know that someone has beaten you on as close to a level playing field as possible.

If you want a game based on conflict, then I don't think a 'crap happens' game mechanic along the lines of the current det mechanic is such a big deal..

It would be interesting to see how many BB players are for or against detonations and how many CA players are for or against detonations. I would put money down more BB players are for them and more CA players are against.

You want a game that's skill based, play chess.

I get detonated in my Khab all the time. I've gotten detonated from full health or near full health many times. 

Won't someone think of the Khab drivers?

I just thought of a Khabarovsk getting detonated at full health and my whole day feels brighter.  Thanks.

Every time I see a Khab I think of how I can put tremendous damage, directly on his magazine hitbox, in one dsalvo as I can so he will blow up. I have never been successful - with the Khab...
