RNG was a fickle lady this past week. Take your time and aim, miss. Snap shot and hit.

Sigh............

I just saw a red E8 driving full speed set one guy on fire, then I miss a point blank shot while he goes on to track the ELC bis not f'n once, but twice while both of us are full speed trying to circle.  It's not tank balance that pisses me off it's that kind of crap.

I love it when my HE rounds from 150mm derp guns pens someones side/rear/roof armor for +1k damage leaving them with a hair of health or 1shotting them all together. I was watching world of warships a while ago and there is a perk that increases HE pen by 30% I wish we had such a perk in WoT.

still though 30% might be a bit high for this game kv-2's would be rolling around penning tigers frontally with HE easily.

I suppose that's true. I think if WG ever did put a perk in like this it'd probably only be a 20% increase. A tiger with a little angling could avoid being penned by this. The only real balance  problem i see now is artillery being able to pen roofs easier.

me too.

This past week I was on thiepval ridge in my T-10 (fully upgraded!).


 

I shot an OPFOR AMX 13-90 in the back of the turret from about 75m and it Bounced!!!

I was like, what!??!!?

I was so dumbfounded that I didn't notice the bat chat that came flying up behind me and totally a$$holed me.

The misses when shooting broad side heavies and mediums the past two days was infuriating.  Here is RNG at its best for 1, I hit shot, and 2, I survived landing.

I wouldn't mind if they dialed RNG down a bit. The +/- 25% is too much. Recently bounced a shot off the flat side of a Churchill VII, square on with no angle at all, at a range of no more than 75 meters, when firing standard ammo out of a top-package Conqueror. At 259 average pen, even the lowest of low rolls should not have bounced. 

 

And yes, he was fail platooned in.

Is this where we complain about fully aimed and zoomed in point blank shots bouncing while Right Bumper click on-the-move shots from 400m+ always penetrate?

Sometimes?

This past weekend, my RNG card was pulled. I couldn't be in a game unless I was -2, and then it made sure the majority of my shots either boucned or plummeted in front of the target.

 

Last night things were back to normal, until I had my T1 against a tier III arty. I rounded a corner to kill a different one, and was met by another. We were maybe 20 yards apart.

iT BOUNCED 4 OF MY SHOTS IN A ROW. Not even a critical. Things in this game are SO absolutely messed up sometimes.

RNG really is a bad game design element

Because for the times it saves my butt, : 

 

- it pats me on the back for possible mistakes on my part ; ergo, I don't learn my lesson as a tanker.

- and it gives me a false sense of security regarding my tank's armor and positioning.
