Is detonation more common recently?

I'm finding it more common atm to get detonation than it was before, I even have had 2 detonations from dive bombers which never happened in the past.

Just wondering if others have experienced this or whether I'm just have a bad run?

Mainly in my DD's but it has happened in my CL/CA's and one on a BB.

I haven't been detonated in weeks :( ran out of juliet charlie flags a long time ago, still haven't managed to get them restocked.

 

I have 136 of them if you want some, may have to start using them myself although I never had the need until recently. I must be having a bad run atm.

Funny you should bring it up, I just got detonated by a torp in a Kaiser and seconds after a second team mate got detonated as well.. I am going to see if it occurs more..

Any specific ships you always get detonated?

Technically it should be more common since they changed up the modules.  The main battery one that most people took in slot 1 had 30% det reduction.  The new one doesn't and I would say most people don't take the 70% det reduction module.  Hence there should be around a 50% increase in detonations for most people.

 

Fun and interesting mechanic...

That is not what I'm saying at all. If people previously had a 30% det reduction, and now they don't, clearly they will detonate more now.  Not a complex theory, and you can't say that the rate of someone detonating is not related to their detonation chance, which is what you're trying to get across.  If I was saying that previously people took the secondary module and didn't detonate as much, now they take the aa module and detonate more, therefore they detonate more because of the aa module, you'd be correct.

I want to say "I haven't even been detonated for months", but I have that distinctive feeling I will because I said that.

 

You just did

Good luck with that :D
