its an annoying little factor in this game,your guns have what you call Apha Damage and Aphal Penetration,for example,a gun with the following stats:

PEN 175 DMG 230.

The pen and Damage during a battle ARE not equal to the Aphas.it could be much higher of minor.each tiemyou shoot you "Roll The Dice"the RNG picks a ramdon number from the Minimun Pen nunber and DMG to the Maximun number.

If you are lucky you get a good nunber and penetrate the enemy and beal a good damage,if your having a bad day,depending on the gun,you wont pen most enemies.

get it?

RNG means:Random Number Generator.

:D

RNG also effects accuracy.

e.g. if you have a bad roll, your shot will hit close to the edge of your reticle circle, it can also hit outside it.

So the RNG affects Accuracy, Damage done, and Pen values.....

So if you are having a bad RNG game.... you can't hit, you can't pen, and you can't do damage......

Best to turn off the PC, do the RNG appeasing song and dance routine and then start the game again.

The wiki under damage states specifically that its a number +/- 25%

IMHO 25% is way too much randomness

RNG = Rigged, Not Genuine(ly random)

Yes, RNG is the bane of all WOT player's existence.  I personally save the virgins and use goats instead.....

I've noticed on one day i'll generate alot of damage then the next day it is bounces, paint flakes, and ghost rounds. Yes it truly is random.
