Has anyone else noticed an uptick in detonations since the last patch?  Anecdotal evidence, but about every other game someone is detonating.  CW is going on, perhaps less are running det flags in randoms.  I just watched a GK take a torp near the rudder and detonate lol.

Anyone else noticing this or just rng being rng?

I watched a Shima detonate an Asashio with a single cannon hit. 

"Do you feel fun and engaged yet?"

Chat was dying!

Luck is part of any game.   It’s all part of the "friction" of make-believe warfare.  See Carl Von Clausewitz 1832 classic: “On Virtual War”. 

When Napoleon Bonaparte was criticized for winning battles simply because of luck, he famously retorted: “I'd rather have lucky generals than good ones.” More than a hundred years later, Eisenhower reaffirmed this point by saying: “I'd rather have a lucky general than a smart general. They win battles.”

I know he’s a good general, but is he lucky?

Last time I was detonated was because a dead Kronshtad who played really bad managed to hit my Shima and got that lucky Russian bias and detonated me.

 

But overall detonation seems to be less frequent.
