So Long Annoying Detonations (At least when at full strength)

I wanted to praise the decision to eliminate detonations from the game in the latest update.  (At least when at full strength)  It is so frustrating to get a detonation early in battles.  Appreciate the change.  GLHF

yeah I put up a post in regards to the Detonation Nerf as well. Yeah..GLAD WOW did implement it.  It's about time for that illogical lame mechanic to get the boot. - or at least a 25% less boot in this case.  Hopefully MORE will be coming. I'd like to see it eliminated myself. As I keep saying..no ones going to complain if it gets deleted totally.  Also it would mean one more placeholder for another flag other than the DET Flag.

I can't remember who it was, but someone had a great Idea of having a dynamic detonation, with each turret magazines having separate hitboxes, when RNG decided doing a set percentage of damage based on the ships Max HP divided by the number of turrets and resulting in the permanent destruction of the turret, with a extremely low chance (1 or lower %) chance for total destruction.

They didn't remove detonation at all, they just allow detonation to happens once you lost 25% of your HP. 

 

I guess it will change some people life.... Personally I don't think I'll feel any difference

It wasn't really an issue for me either. I have 4700ish battles played and 31 detonations in that time frame, maybe 10 of those were full HP detonations. I just think They should have made the animation for it more spectacular.

Had it happen to me this morning going in for a cap with my Kidd and was hit by one shell and detonated, but the day before detonated a full health Missouri with one torp from my Shimi so all works out in the end.

So I took my shiny new Normandie out for the first time after completing the mission. Tier 6 in a T8 game; no problem says I, let's get stuck in. I fire a few volleys and push in cause it's pretty fast for a BB. 1 torpedo hit, near full hp and detonation. So damn glad to see this being implemented. 2 dets in the last 2 days, this one being the worst.

I like this change. It's better rather be demoralized in the first opening minutes of the game just to have a DD die by detonation. Hopefully, this should stop some detonation complain threads.

And we have a winner!

I doubt a DD will see any difference, even a cruiser and if a BB chooses to mess around with the heal to save dipping below 75% that is a risk in itself.

Of course the dev strikes will still be around.

You're still gona see full health detonations. The Det check happens after damage is applied so if you take a hit that does 25% damage you can still be detonated. DD's are still gona blow up left-and-right from single BB salvos at the start of matches, and likewise it's possible for single torp hits on BB's to detonate them from full health.

I could really use some flags, so not blowing up may be a problem

Wasn't recording on that one.  It's the only flag I use on Gearing though.  I only use one signal flag on it.
