RNG needs to be fixed before anything else. It makes the game near unplayable sometimes

I have to say, by far the worst bug in this entire game is the RNG. 

 

Its absolutely ridiculous to put this much effort into designing a game and then allow RNG to essentially break everything for no real reason. 

 

Ill go a week with an 1800 WN8 only to fall to a 500 because suddenly I am unable to even make contact with other tanks, let alone penetrate them or hit their weak spots. 

 

For instance, in the last 48 hours Ive often been unable to even get rounds to even make contact with other tanks that are taking up my entire aiming reticle. And not because of lag, but because the rounds just fly off randomly. My last 3 rounds have been like 300-500 damage because 70% of my shells dont even contact the enemy tanks! 

 

I just got thrown into a tier X game in a tier 9, and managed to get close range behind an enemy heavy tank destroyer. Completely filling my reticle... and yet my round flies off randomly and I get torn to shreds. 

 

And this has been what the entire past 48 hours has been. And this happens ON A ROUTINE BASIS. Ill be fine for a week, then suddenly 2-3 days where RNG wont even let me hit another tank half the time or more. 

 

Im a well paying customer, and I find myself repeatedly blocking my credit card for 6 months at a time because of how incredibly poorly this game behaves due to RNG. It doesnt matter how good a player is, they can have a WN8 of 2000 for a week, then suddenly be unable to even hit other tanks. RNG is just absolute infuriating. 

 

We dont need to hit 100% of the time, but having RNG make tanks completely unplayable for days on end is simply unacceptable. 

 

Its time RNG gets fixed. Nobody is going to pay to come on here for the game to be willingly broken by its own programmers. Im about ready to block my card for another 6 months. If you want to lose more paying customers, this is how you do it. 

 

3....2....1... Horde of mentally unstable players spewing vitriol. Dont you love this community?

Last game, 3 shots before being killed. 1st shot bounces off tank 2 tiers lower than me. 2nd shot just flies off randomly for some reason. 3rd shot finally hits, ammo racking a heavy tank destroyer and blowing it up in one shot. Its just nonsensical. 

 

Its like RNG is on acid. Its just nonsensical. This is not how the game is supposed to operate.

Last round: 1 Miss 2 Miss 3 Bounce off lower tier, then two hits at close range. 

 

Its just completely broken. There is no reason for a game to intentionally break itself for no reason. RNG needs to be fixed. 

 

I just got two hits AND GOT A THIRD CLASS FOR IT. If two hits getting a third class doesn't prove something is wrong, then nothing does.

You've hit a plateau and you're being inconsistent. Look at where your mistakes are and improve on them, ask better players their opinion.

best thing to do to prove the nay-sayers wrong is to run the same tank, record your shots that do damage (and the ones that don't but should), and do that over the course of 50+ battles.  It'll take time, but it'll prove the nay-sayers wrong.

 

To everyone who screams "tinfoil hat"...WG's "RNG Algorithm" is very bipolar.  It has no short term average that matches the in game numbers.  It is not a good game mechanic.  The RNG Algorithm is a manipulated game mechanic designed to give specific results at certain times all in the name of "balance."  I'm speaking about this with years of experience of monitoring the behavior of the RNG Algorithm through all the changes to it from the first iteration in July 2010, to the "perfect aimbot" debacle, from the common 14-15 wins, to the frequent 15-5's of today.

RNG isn't bugged. However, I believe we can all agree that 25% RNG is way too much. It needs to be reduced badly.

Been saying that for years. +/- 15% please.

Just another one of those "soft stats" wot has that makes the game rather frustrating. Nothing like firing 8 to 10 shots and having almost zero damage because they went into the stratosphere or mining for copper in the dirt, followed by the infamous zero damage "critical" hit....... It's especially bad when the target has "gone dark" say behind a bush and the reticle just goes nuts not staying where you aim.

Okay, so today Ive been having to use almost exclusively HE because 70% of AP rounds bounce even against lower tier tanks. T30 bouncing rounds off tank it should slice through like butter, WHEN IT CAN EVEN HIT THEM. 

 

My past round I hit 6 times with HE and did a whole 98 damage. If even HE rounds are useless, something is wrong. 

 

And when Ive asked other players, every single time Ive asked I have heard someone else respond that they are suffering the same thing. 

 

Enough is enough. RNG needs to be fixed. Its making the game absolutely completely unplayable. This is why people are fleeing from WoT in droves. Why would anyone want to play with the game willingly broken by its own creators?

[edited]it. Thats it. 

 

Im blocking my card again and looking for a game that doesnt [edited]over players who spend thousands of dollars. 

 

There is no way in hell anybody is going to pay for a game when it regularly stops functioning because of RNG. 

 

I am sick and tired of the game routinely becoming unplayable. Why in the hell would I pay for this crap?

If you spent thousands of dollars in 7000 battles you have serious issues. In all my time here, with premium and premium tanks, I think it would be closer to 300 or 400 at the absolute most.

Weird question... let's say we all accept the premise that RNG is broken. Doesn't that mean it's broken for the guys shooting at you too?

+-25% on damage and pen can be infuriating but its only the tip of the iceberg.

 

RNG is not a bad thing, what is bad is having BS RNG. i mean if anyone has played counter strike at some point of his life knows that a shotgun if aiming to the upper side of the body  can eventualy pull a headshot from long range, is not likely and will never be remotely close to be as acurate as a sniper rifle but the chance is there.

 

in WOT a 0.6 acuracy gun (shotgun) can reliably snipe and pull snapshots while 0.3 ones will miss their targets.  or the BS modular damage where one match you get hit 10 times and nothing and the next you loose 5 modules from 4 hits,

Okay. That is simply wrong. Have you injected marijuanas today, sir?

Actually against heavy and highly angled armor HE should be nearly useless. It was designed to take out light armor, troops positions, spgs, and buildings, not shoot at heavily armored tanks.

I totally agree, maybe +/- 10 or 15% but when as a TD with nearly 300 pen and you bounce 2 shots off a lights [edited]and the next to don't even land in the aim circle crapis jacked up.

no need of marijuana to see that the acuracy stat dosent mean much, there are plenty of examples of inacurate guns sniping like the video claus made some time ago
