Poor guy.  Hope he thanked you for the flags.

Not even with an AP shell. JFC, Karma's going to be a MF when she catches up with you.

No doubt this is the question Admiral Holland asked himself as the pride of the Royal Navy was blowing up and splitting in two.

At least you hit him and didn't get a splash full health detonation.

Luckily this won't happen as of the next patch.

I tend to think a more pressing matter in his mind at that moment was likely "boy, that water is going to be cold."

And if you think this is fantastic, Lert just reported something that went one better. 5700-odd destroyer-killing stroke from ZERO shells fired by a secondary gun.

you're coming off as a bit disingenuous...I don't think you're sorry...nor do I sense that you have any intention of repenting from detonating people in the future. 

I actually think WG has the detonation flag reward thing butt-backwards.  I think the dude or dudette that does the detonating should get some reward flags.  The detonated should be stuck with salty tears and the deep regret of having presented a full broadside to a wall of AP.

Seal Clubber! Shame on you. Just kidding. Well played ntman68. Sometimes a lucky shot will get to the magazine and... repeat after me. BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE!

Shells were fired, but none hit. The splash damage from the miss detonated the magazine.

My hipper was detonated today too ... by a bayern.  Thankfully my team won.

Yeah, except you can be detonated from any angle, and even from shells that dont hit the ship. Completely idiotic. WG keeps Random AFKs -- I mean dets --  in the game just to speed things up, a giant middle finger to aggressive players playing hard. Sucks.

We nearly lost a game yesterday because of a late-game detonation of our Amagi after he bravely and competently outfought an Akizuki in our cap to save the day. Really tired of losing games because WG needs to put extra AFKs in the match.

Um... the song is "Sink the Bismarck" not "Sink the Hipper"

Bismarck & Prince Eugene weren't available so he went for Prince Eugene's sister.

There's really no excuse for Detonations in this game. None at all. We're not a reality simulator, we're a video game.

All Detonations do is screw over teams randomly.  It's a shining textbook example of bad User Experience (UX) design.

The proposed "protecting" 100-75% healthy ships from detonations isn't going to fix anything at all.  

 

But hey, given all the other horrible UX design failures, it's sadly par for the course.

Done it in CBT with a Baltimore HE Salvo, into a Cleveland. Poor Cleveland got insta deleted and never got too fire a shot in anger.

Repeat after me: THE MECHANIC ACCOMPLISHES NOTHING POSITIVE IN THE GAME.

Lol. Every time I get a Detonation against someone... it's usually caused by my Secondaries. 

I recall one player call me out that my Main Batteries weren't even pointing in his direction; then he saw the CQB award and promptly said "Fun. And.. EnRaging..." 

Anyways, he got a "Worthy Adversary" compliment from me post match. He needed some help with better karma. 

But got to farm those Det flags somehow... wish it wasn't restricted to once per day. I'd be nice to have a stockpile before the next ranked season begins.

Except that it did (until recently) have a historical basis. Protecting ships > 75% HP now makes that unrealistic, but until now it has been completely 100% defensible.

A small functionality that could happen in life surrounded by a myriad of other things that do not is not positive.
