Still at work and I was curious about the no-RNG thingy...

For you that are lucky enough to be playing  already, do you even notice it?

So far not terrible. Now teams on the other hand are no surprise trash so RNG don't help with that. but glad to see that it's not going to go all over the place with pen.

Should be live since almost 3 hrs,  but I take that as a sign of that the change is of minor importance.

Can you tell a difference with the change?

i am noticing  i am rolling in the 400s consistently with the 50TP proto. actually, in every match i have played in it so far.

i have not had a roll below 400 or above 500 actually. my range should be 396-484 i think with current changes.

Are all red reticles translating to penetrating hits?

The pen or the damage? Or both?

Both. Doesn't feel like i'm getting those insane low (or high) rolls like the game did with 25%. Shots feel more stable and not as annoying when i hit something. Having the numbers to where the base pen feels great as it makes more sense without it jumping all over the place. Perfect example is shooting the Maus with my WZ-113G FT with HEAT before it had a small chance to bounce and even had that happen. now it penned the shot no problem. same for alpha. feels more in tune.

Spaced armor will show a red reticle, as it did before the change, but will not necessarily mean a guaranteed pen.

Red should penetrate with the exception of your shot going off target. Accuracy % wasn't altered.

In other words, it is rewarding your skill and aiming, not letting RNG arbitrarily screw you?
I'm just saying.....

So far i'm happy with 10% damage rng, now my rows are pretty close to the average damage of the gun. But we have 7 day to figure if it's important, but i prefer 10%.

I haven't played it yet, but really look forward to it.

 

For ALL the naysayers.  Think about it from these standpoints.

 

1) you go to buy a new car and they tell you that it has 200 horsepower.  But then they also tell it might actually have 150 horsepower or 250 horsepower and that nobody actually knows what it will have.  Would you buy a car under those conditions?

 

2) You get a job.  It pays $20 per hour, but may pay $15 or $25.  You won't know until you get your check.

 

3) A defense contractor that makes actual projectiles for the military tells the purchasing committee that the rounds will penetrate X amount of armor and have Y amount of explosive force.  Next they tell the committee that there is a variation of 50% between different shells in each batch.  No committee would agree to those terms unless the normal amount of graft and corruption was involved in the purchase.

 

I have a theory about who is affected by RNG variation more than others and those that are constantly affected by it will likely have less change with the test.  I know that I had another game with all low rolls last night.  4 shots from my Sheridan with no ramming/fire/kills for 1245 damage.  It is very hard to win when the shots that do pen do 20% less damage than the opposing team.


290+ tanks played haven't caught 'em all yet  539543

 

Think you are the best at WOT this link might explain why you are so good at this game.

this change has made the Jagdpanzer E-100's armor amazing! and it consistently hits over 1000 now! (damage is 945-1,155.) this is fantastic!

Had rolls in the 500's   and 900's   in the slayer so not noticed much really.

I haven’t noticed much difference. Maybe in the damage rolls I’ve gotten, but I don’t pay too much attention to that. I can imagine it may have been more predictable to be able to trust your roll when finishing low health tanks. But I haven’t been aware of a situation like that so far. I’m just shooting tanks and since I was already aiming for weak spots, nothing much changed. 

 

I have been playing IX and X exclusively though, so lower tiers may be a different story.
