Game play is great, visually it's pretty excellent.  But they just put waaaaaay too much crapin here seemingly for the purpose of pissing you off.  I'm in a Nassau.  Fighting a DD.  DD fires all his torps and misses.  So he starts shooting at me with his main guns and well sur-prise sur-prise, he kills me with 1 shot.  Yeah, makes total sense that a destroyer can kill a full health battleship with 1 hit from his main gun.  So yeah, I'm out.  [edited] this [edited]

I smell a troll.

 

Replay, or I will never believe you.

Also, get past tier 3? Just a suggestion. 131 battles is not nearly enough to say that you're done with the game.

Ok. Wait a few months, then cash in on the 'we want you back' goodies. By that time the game may have changed or your tastes or patience could have as well.

The rage will bring you back.  That's why detonations are a thing.  We are simple creatures.

It's not possible.  No HE shell is capable of detonating a battleship.  Believe me, I've tried to make it happen and it's physically impossible.

He does have 1 Detonation on record. Maybe he got detonated by a torpedo.

Can a Nassau have it's armor penned, magazines damaged and detonated from one salvo from a tier 3 or 4 DD firing HE or AP, though? I don't think that is possible. Torpedoes could have done it but not the DD's guns. Plus, he would have to have been below 75 % of his HP pool to have that happen as well.

Game mechanics can be a little frustrating. A DD comes around an island, pops his smoke in range of Bismarck my secondaries. He is moving to fast and I'm able to get a round off with my main batteries. They where a miss of a deflection. My secondaries get a second round just as he stops out running his smoke. BOOM, my secondaries hit for a detonation. For the rest of the game the DD is complaining in chat. All of my dead team mates was just egging him on. The game can be frustrating. Take a deep breath or a sip of a good Scotch and remember it is just a game.

It's not.  No destroyer-caliber gun can citadel Nassau's magazine and no HE shell in the game, up to and including Yamato's 460mm and Conqueror's 457mm HE shells are capable of damaging a battleship's magazine.

Which is why he most likely ate another torpedo and it detonated him and he didn't know how fast that DD could reload torpedo's.

he could have been hit by something else shooting at him and thought it was the DD, but like others have said, need to see it to buy into it.

He probably got hit by another ship for most of his hp and the dd happened to have the finishing blow, only thing I can think of outside being detonated by torpedoes.

I think it's more likely the entire scenario was made up for the purposes of trolling.

Probably took one right under a turret and took a hit to the magazine and didn't see it coming.

When you are new there's quite a bit to take in and its really really easy to tunnel vision.

It's also possible he was flooding out (from a torp hit earlier in the game), didn't recognize it, and just flooded the final damage tic as the DD fired on him, or the DD fired on him and got the final damage tic.

I know in my early days of the game I flooded out a few times before I realized what was happening.

But I'm glad you did because I wasn't aware of this (I had an idea of the DD caliber guns not being able to detonate a BB but had no idea a Yammy/Conq caliber HE shell couldn't). Thanx for clarifying that.

 

But I also noticed nobody has actually "tagged" the OP w/other than "bye bye" comments. He very well may be a troll...but...

xalmgrey brings up a good point here.

OP...if you're truly gone than so be it...but the scenario you described is impossible per the game mechanics. Odds are another round from some other ship (or an unseen torpedo) got you but the DD rounds definitely did not.

Odds are you do not have replays enabled but if you do 1 would really help to clarify. If not...odds are you just misinterpreted all the options that might have actually caused the detonation.

"Fun & Engaging" is the inside joke in relationship to the detonation mechanic as it pisses off all until you get used to it...but the game is quite fun beside that particular mechanic & it's frequency is pretty rare (it took you 136 battles to discover it right?) so here's hoping you give it another try.

Trolling aside the potential effect on new players is yet another good reason to completely ditch the detonation mechanic.

Speak for yourself.  The detonation mechanic was something I was looking forward to in World of Warships.  That it's still implemented in such a lackluster way disappoints me and I'm very much looking forward to when we finally get some nice animations for different types of ship destruction.

While the game may not be for you I feel that with the small number of matches you have that you should give it more time before leaving.

They revised that in one of the recent updates.  You have to be down to a certain percentage of health before a detonation is possible.  

There's no way what the OP is describing could have actually happened. Either something else killed his ship or it didn't really happen.

Detonation mechanic, great idea.  Maybe call of duty should have a "you spontaneously died of a heart attack" mechanic.  

still don't believe you just simply died from a single he shell.

detonations have a very very low chance of according. I got detonated 21 times in over 3.6 battles. If i did the math right, that is like 1 detonation every 170 battles. That about 0.5% chance
