   We get a lot of threads on this forum with a similar theme, "Get rid of Detonations." "No more Detonations." "No dets." "Plz remove dets."

However, did you know that it's actually a denotation?

  Who knew? Even the WoWS developers misspelled it in the detailed description, just like you and me.

I've done some thinking, and I think I may know how this works, backed by 000% science:
  See, when a magazine takes damage, it destroys the notes of the magazine's existence, which are obviously stored in the magazine. Thus, when the notes are destroyed (de-noted, or no longer noted), the ship forgets that it has a magazine, and your ship explodes out of confusion.

Warship confusion is a terrible disease.

Talk to your warships about magazines. Stop the suffering.

Wow... this...

 

This would be a shame if it slipped past someone who was an English major or something like that, even if it was staring them straight in the face, right?

I can attest to the letter "T" being elusive. My Game Name shows this.

I never noticed that until now :Smile_teethhappy:

It happens, lol

LOL, I always mentally filled in the "T" in your handle.  I would have never suspected that your name didn't have a T in it without you pointing it out. I guess it's that thing where your brain fills in values it expects to see.

In fairness, this English major you speak of has a slight case of the dyslexia (it's not slight.), and is used to substituting missing letters into a word or rearranging it entirely.

It's not unlike what we throw around in battles, every time we load into one.

You simply cannot know how many times I half expect to see a poster bringing up something about city or county laws, whenever they refer to shells and torpedoes.
