Haven't seen a Det in months, maybe even this year. 

I get detonated (in a G.K.!!!) and my last match had 3 detonations.

They never left. They don't happen as often, but they still were happening.

I know. It's just odd to see 4 in two matches.

Agreed. I had a match last night where there were three. They seem to come in fits and starts.

Then I won't see them again for a week or so.

So yes; most peculiar indeed.

You can increase the odds of generating a detonation by repeatedly firing at the magazine weak spot on a ship.  And you can reduce having one by protecting your magazine as much as possible.  LWM's Fun and Engaging Science series can be quite enlightening.  It is not ALL RNG...

I can beat that. Had a game a while back with 3 detonations, all the enemy DDs, and I caused 2 of them. Sometimes RNG just says nope.

I caused detonation on a battleship via torp from my Harugumo. That same ship received "just a flesh wound" by killing me in return, with a detonation. We both laughed.

Last time I was detonated was the 1st game I played in a DD when I’d run out of detonation flags. I figured I paid my dues to RNGESUS so continued playing my DD’s 3 games later after 2 more detonations coal was spent in the arsenal purchasing a boat load of detonation flags to add to the 30 I just received and all DD’s and cruisers in my port were checked to ensure they all had the flags on them!! I didn’t think to check the ships I played in that next 3 ships to add them from the 10 I’d “earned” from the initial detonation!

I get detonated (in a G.K.!!!) and my last match had 3 detonations. 

Here's the fun part...I had about 500 det flags saved up because dets happened so rarely I didn't even bother using them (& there were better options of flags I wanted to use so just ignored them basically).

Then 1 day I got a couple dets in 2 different T10 ships so I decided to start using them on all my T9s & T10s & they lasted for 3 or 4 months before I ran out. Then the fun began...

in a 9 day period I got detonated 11 times...used to be I could go for about 3 months between dets but when you use the flags for an extended period of time RNG registers that you are due & you get spanked for quite a bit before it balances the scales & you go back down to only once every 3 months (& yes...after that week of unending fury it did balance back out & dets are just a rare occasion again...that was almost a year ago that happened).

Moral...just because it happens a couple or a few times in a short period don't panic & equip flags for a long time for the scales will be balanced in the end.

Sorry...I was typing mine while you posted yours so didn't see yours or I would have quoted you to bring attention to my warning about what you posted. You should read my post above this 1.

I only use them on DDs and squishy cruisers... I can count, on the fingers of one hand, the number of times a BB I was driving got detonated. But it is frustrating.

Back when tier 4 could still see tier 6, I think it was in beta, I was out in my Fuso when a Langley dropped on me. I was able to torpedo beat all but one and I was thinking, I can take one with no prob...

No worries mate. It’s interesting what you say in the post that you mentioned. I could definitely see it being a “flag” (no pun intended) in the RNG algorithm!

I was in my Atlanta last week, and saw the shells coming, thinking I can dodge these...the last one caught the tail of my ship and boom.  Haven't had a det in a while, used to happen a lot when running my Kberg or Nberg ships, which I don't run as often as I used too..  Had it happen more in them than in my DDs.

Got detonated in a Worcester yesterday.  It was interesting, hadn't seen one for a while.

Well it is all RNG but you can multiply your chances of making one occur by doing what you said. You are increasing your odds by firing in specific spots .
