Just played my first and last ranked game.

Enemy Yamato at :45 seconds   "Watch this."

11s later I'm dead

Not spotted.  Not anything. Killed by a detonation.

first and last ranked game.

I was under the impression you couldn't detonate from full health?

Either way, detonations are awful, but they'll never be removed, make sure you load flags for detonation protection when doing ranked.

I had that experience a few times about 2 years ago and learned my lesson.

Again, sucks, but, can be countered and should be, during ranked especially.

BONUS* you now have 10 of those flags! woo!

:)  I seriously appreciate your positive attitude.  And you are right!  I got some free flags!

The dude saying "watch this" and then me dying instantly just soured me to no end....  I know he just shot randomly and happened to magically obliterate my ship by pure luck.

I really want to watch that replay.

It needs to be preserved for future generations.

Well, other people have more of a chance to ruin your WOWS experience than the game itself in my experience, but try to keep your chin up.

If you find a few good friends in the game to division with, it's a totally different experience, even when you get a looper like that guy.

Also, RNG is a cruel cruel beast, and has made me want to drown myself in my bathtub on more than one occasion, but when it works in your favor and gives your shot that kind of love....it makes me giggle.

If you take a salvo of hits and the first few shells knock you below 75% (IIRC) health, then each shell that affects the magazine can start checking for detonation. So while the first shell can not, the later ones in a salvo can.

No way?! It totally makes sense actually, but....I never even thought about it and....WOW that's unfortunate.

I mean a "fun and engaging mechanic"

Only like, not.

It's happened to a few other people since last year and some of the wizards here sussed it out. So it is super rare to detonate on a first salvo now, so it's kind of an honor if you have a skewed sense of humor. :Smile_teethhappy:

Correct, a ship cannot be detonated from 100% health. The threshold is 75% and below.

However, this does nothing to prevent a ship from going to 75% and then detonating in the same salvo. Thus, let's say a Montana fires upon a Des Moines. It is possible for the Montana to score a citadel with one of the shells, thus bringing the health of the Des Moines down to below 75%, and then for subsequent shells in the same salvo to detonate said Des Moines.

Does the first shell also do a det check if it drops you sub 75%? Or just subsequent shells from the same/additional salvo(s)?

So the Yammy must have been spotted, he was firing (probably at a broadside target) , and you did not use WASD in case he was firing at you?  WASD and extremely important in ranked.

Theoretically this happened because at least 2 shells hit, one to drop him to 75% or less, then the second to detonate.  OP didn’t say what his ship was,  but the first shell has to be a citadel.  A blind fire long range (remember, Yammie) is going to have ugly dispersion, UU or not. The chances of a double cit I find small-ish.  I’m joining the “replay or it didn’t happen” party.

It's a necessary evil to have that Hood effect in game. The flags are to ensure you are immune to it for being that sacrificial cinematics ship.

I drive a Yammy a lot and I'm a complete 47% Potato........  I've done this a few times. No, I didn't taunt the victim but, sure enough, I don't salvo the guns and every once and a while, the first three Citadel, the second three citadel and the last three detonate the ship....  Now, they all seem to be flying at one time but, aren't actually a full salvo...  Then, the chat room starts about hacks etc.......and, I'm a potato and I can assure you, it wasn't pure luck since I do try to aim well........it was the RNG God's deep and dark sense of humor that made the difference.

On an unaimed ship?  You know shooting an untargeted ship drastically increases dispersion?  I know we’ve all seen smoked UK cruisers being blapped unseen, but this is 45 seconds into the game, that’s probably a 20+km shot.
