So from what i can tell is that WG is gonna be reworking detonations.....

 

have the 2 years of QQing in regards to detonations finally won out will they be removed? or will it be a big change to them to make them even more fun and engaging what do you think?

I don't think they are going away as every time a poll has been put up it has overwhelmingly been to have them stay. Maybe they are reworking them to act more like in WoT where the most often effect is either the loss of a gun or easier a drop in reload rate.

They could take 1/2 of the full HP for a detonation. That way if you are low, you still go boom as expected, but if you are full, you still have some health.

I think they are fine the way they are. People just wine too much sometimes. Take the flags and move on to the next game. 

Statistically, it is insignificant. I have had 80 detonations out of 9665 matches, 0.008%.

I am fine even if it was one percent.

Maybe they'll implement LWM's idea oh how they should happen.  :cap_hmm:  Please someone tell me they have that link somewhere, because I'm failing quite hard trying to find it. :Smile_hiding:

Detonations are real and a possible aspect of the game. We all fancy ourselves as captains leading our ship out to battle whom ever. HMS Hood was pretty much detonated. Just a thought about how I think the devs have tried to make a realistic naval warfare game. Ghostdog take Captains opinions to heart. Wish each best of luck.

i have had 70 det in 10k matches and frankly even lower % since I've put -70% in most of my botes.   (probably 10 in 3-4k matches)  overall, it is a none issue.     I have 360 JC on hand  and only use them for ranked/cb .

I quite like that idea, actually. It strikes a good middle ground between removing detonations entirely, and letting lucky shells remove entire ships early in battle.

That would work too but I am biased and like my idea. However, whatever change they make that doesn't remove them they have to be much much much more spectacular.

No problem with detonations.

Jutland BB's were going off like popcorn - far higher % than here.

And some want the game to be more realistic?  Maybe 2-5% detonations in tier 3 thru 5 BB's?

How can you tell how many detonations you've had? I can't find that stat (and the medal is only awarded once per day, so is inaccurate in providing a total number of occurrences).

Or basically 1 in 120 battles. The statistics might be askew if you have had more than 1 det a day but that may have only happened once or twice.

You can get multiple medals a day, the "award" is only given once

If you look at the wording of the release, it says something to the effect of "early detonations". I am assuming they mean detonations that occur early in the match so am thinking that maybe detonations will be disabled for like the first 5 minutes of the match... Just guessing is all but find the use of the word "early" interesting.

I hate it when it happens to me, but I love it when I do it to someone else.  :fish_boom:

mostly the British BCs had the 'Det' issue.

 

Invinicible, Indegfatigable, Queen Mary all were detonated at Jutland.

 

German's only BC sank after flooding became uncontrollable.

The game should lag for everyone for a moment as the mushroom cloud animation loads...

So they should. I had taken a break for a few months, came back and didn't have much to run for anti-det flags. MY GOD. I would play 5 or 6 battles and detonate in 2 of them. It's stupid. One of my first T10 battles back we had 3 DD on our side. 2 died within the first 3 minutes. I was 1 shell killed from full HP in Khaba. The 3rd DD finally detonated about 5 minutes in. Just pure nonsense. It happened, yes, but not to that extent.

UMMMMMMMMMM what or who is QQ?

I had to look it up- apparently it's a reference to crying eyes but mainly a throw back from World of Warcraft. I guess one of the key commands to quit out of the game was Alt+Q+Q so people who were whining in game were told to just QQ.
