I don't know whether to feel thrilled or furious right now. The good news - I just got my personal highest base XP ever, and just got the 2nd highest damage of all time worldwide that a WZ-132 has ever gotten in a Tier 10 battle.

 

 


 

The bad news? RNG really took the piss out of me at the end of the battle. I should have had 7,400 damage by the end... Not 6,861 damage. That would have been #1 of all time regardless of matchmaking. It would have been the new world record. But RNG just said "SCREW YOUR WORLD RECORD"

 

RNG screwing me first time

 

RNG screwing me 2nd time

 


 

For real? How is this even possible? How do some of these bounces / non-penetrations happen? I was just 350 damage short of the #1 damage of all time in the WZ-132, and then at the very end of the battle RNG just completely screws me over.

 

The first screenshot should have been a 100% penetration...

 

 

The second one would have been a 100% penetration had the shell hit just a couple of pixels higher.

 

 


 

I just can't win, can I? Even in a battle like this, the game still finds a way to screw me. :(

Congrads on your accomplishment Scorp..  RNG can be infuriating.  Sorry to see you got hosed like that. Especially for a number one position.  Happens way more often than it should.  Anyway, Happy Holidays.

Congratulations on the great match. 
 

So it was RNG fault you did not beat the record. 
 

But RNG had nothing to do with you getting enough damage to have a chance at breaking the record?

It really didn't. There was nothing unusually good that happened throughout the battle. RNG behaved perfectly normally until the very end, and most of the shots I took were at close range (10m-150m) at easily penetrable armor plates. The only "lucky" shot I had was a snapshot at a Leopard 1, but with the WZ-132's great gun handling and the 300m distance on that shot, it's not too shocking. Plus I had non-penned an EBR earlier, so those two kind of offset one-another.

That bad RNG roll could have happened anytime during your match.
 

You are just frustrated it happened when it did. 
 

If earlier, you would not have had enough damage to have a chance at the record.
 

Which you would probably just be proud of a great game. And not whining about not breaking some record.

Nice, congrats though understand about being just short of the record. My most damage ever is only 5314, that was in an Obj 263.

 

The RNG troll is frustrating at times. I remember when I was a few meters away with my ISU-152 shooting premium rounds, and fired at the side of a Skorpion, all I get was a "critical hit", goodness what BS, dude just turned his turret and killed me. I had premium loaded because I was the low tier and was facing the high tier tanks on the west side of Abby. Have had numerous trolling instances like that.

Great game none the less.  I had a similar situation with the Leopard 1 yesterday.  I did 6300 dmg and got my ace tanker badge in the tank but could have easily had over 8k dmg but RNG said no.  Like you I didn't really know if I should be happy with the result or p***ed that it could have been so much better.

Nice battle. I'd honestly be curious to see the rest of your shots, and see if you got lucky as many times as you got unlucky. Oh, and keep in mind that the mod you're using shows where the client think the shots landed, not where the server thinks they landed. If those targets were moving, or there was some lag, the server might not have registered those hits where you think they did.

 

Anyway, keep up the good work, and good luck on getting the top spot in the future!

The fact 6800 dmg is second highest in that tank shows how much it needs a buff, nj though OP I always fail in that POS.

The first one is I'm better it hit a bit lower and skid the top of the tracks but didnt do enough to even do a crit.  That's what I'm guessing.

OP,  can you link to the lists that show these all time damage numbers?  I think this would be fun to browse.  I doubt I am in the top 10,000 in any tank in any respect but it would be interesting to see what the levels are for the players who are excelling.

 

And I am going to go with Flavin and think that if RNG cost you some potential, it is also likely that RNG has also likely granted you some benefit when the potential wasn't so likely.  RNG taketh, but it also giveth.  Likely when RNG gives, few players will give it that credit though.
