Kurfurst Detonation?

So, I just got my Kurfurst yesterday. Enjoying her so far. however, in the span of 4 matches today, I got detonated, TWICE.  Both times, beginning of match, seemingly no big deal torps heading for me. I try to dodge the full spread, take a torp each time.  Once it hit in the bow area, the other was in the stern area. Both times, from 3/4 + health, detonated. Is this a normal phenomenon in the Kurf?   I cannot remember the last time I was detonated in a BB, let alone twice in the span of 4 games. 

Obviously, you can run det flags, and not worry about it, but is that really necessary in this ship? Or did I just somehow piss off RNG?!

It's not normal, just bad luck. As you play the GK you will notice that torps are your worst enemy and will inflict the most damage to you so I recommend you equip your ship with anything available to spot them ASAP.

Yeah that's just bad luck, FWIW you're really not very likely to get a detonation from a torpedo unless it hits you right at the edge of the belt near the front of the magazine.  In general it's best to try to take torpedo hits in the middle of your armour belt, both to avoid this and also to ensure the maximum damage reduction from your torpedo protection system.

Bad luck with a bit of too aggressive play perhaps. I'd re-evaluate your early positioning if you are taking torpedo hits that often in the early game. Having said that, if you can't avoid a torpedo then try to take the hit at the extreme end of the bow/stern or amidship. You want to put the torpedo hit as far away  from your magazine as possible to minimize the chance for a detonation

You pissed off RNGesus.  Your chance for detonation per fish that struck near your turrets was about 1% to 2%.  Congrabulations.  You won the esplosion-lottery.

I saw this thread and it made me really consider how...when every you microwave a hot-dog or breakfast sausage...you know how it explodes?  I think from now on I'm calling that a "Kurfurst Detonation".

I think this is a "Welcome to the Kurfurst" present, just to keep you honest.  Have some flags.  Same thing happened to me when I got my FDG.  First few matches, and I got detonated twice.  Its just bad RNG.

Any ship can be detonated - even a Bismark with a torp at juuuuust the right spot under a turret.  Still don't run anti-det flags on any BB.

The only times I have ever seen BBs in WoWS detonate are from ship launched torpedo hits.  It's happened even to a division buddy in his Montana at the start of the match.  Not even air dropped torps do that.

My Ginny got torped and detonated once...rando crap...hasn't happened since.

That strange SS occult magic seems to be a thing in this game.

Your match was taking too long so WG decided you were done. Hope you didn't pay for premium account time.

Air dropped torps will det BBs no problem. Seen it several times.

Never seen that happen, not even in the CV heyday at launch where they were played a lot more with no restrictions on them, and even Midway at her full power.  Even during the days of Hiryu, Shokaku having 0/3/3 Strike Specs, I've never seen them detonate BBs.  But DD torps detonating a BB?  Yes, but rare.
