ive got a real beef with several aspects of this game, main one is gun accuracy, or more specifically the inaccuracy of MY shots compared to the pinpoint accuracy of seemingly everyone elses shots.
i understand the dynamics of stability, a moving vehicle cannot be as accurate as a static vehicle, pretty simple, yet i find myself all too often in a situation where i am static, nicely settled and aimed down the gun, and along comes practically any other vehicle at 40kph which upon seeing me brakes to a standstill, i let my round off and miss, despite only a small percentage of the reticle  falling outside the template of the tank,the other tank immediately upon stopping fires and hits....how can that actually happen????
ive even sat there focusing on a tank that is completely unaware of my presence, im 95% behind a rock, i am static, they are static and in the open, i miss, they swing the turret and with laser guided pinpoint accuracy land a perfect shot destroying my track or getting maximum damage and penetration.
this has happened so often that im feeling its not down to chance.
im feeling that it is down to something more sinister
i think there is some sort of magic imbued onto tanks with a premium account, impenetrable armour and laser accuracy at full throttle.
it happens far too often to be chance.
take for instance a situation where two tanks are on opposite sides of a hill, one sits and aims, the other darts forward pings off a shot over the top and hits while the one waiting misses.....how can that be chance???
im actually feeling i have been defrauded out of the money ive put into this game.
german tanks are supposed to be the most accurate, german engineering is of world renown, yet i appear to be using a tank with a banana barrel firing rounds with the aerodynamic properties and penetration potential of ping pong balls versus Lamborghini's with mounted gauss guns

Replay?  Let me guess, your dog ate it?  Turret movement causes bloom.  Shooting random stuff while waiting causes bloom.  panicked snap shots miss.

Very original content.

 

Do you mind providing some replays to back it up?

replay? if i could find the mechanism for recording the battle then i would have a replay to offer, yet having gone through settings a minimum of 3 times and being unable to find said mechanism to enable there are no replays to offer, however you would need to watch practically the entirety of my last 1000 battles

Here's the "mechanism"...

You can miss likely hits and hit likely misses.

From the Wiki:   

 

"The aiming circle (also called the dispersion circle, dispersion indicator or reticle) describes the area of 2 standard deviations (2σ;) from your aim point. Based on a standard normal distribution, this means that 4.2% of your shots would fall outside of the aiming circle. The shots move (deviate) away from your aim point, outwards toward the edge of the circle, but rarely shoot past its edge."

I have a premium account and I can assure there isn't.

Well sometimes I also have those ridiculous stuff.

 For example a couple weeks ago in the cromwell I was seeing a tank that is spotted and sitting still in the open , I  shoot 4 times fully aimed and miss all completely , then he spots me after the 4th shot, turns turret and without aiming he hits me dead center , sets me on fire and kills commander.

Its also the other way around , for example my is6 isnt very accurate and it happens quite a lot that it hits the ground.

3 days ago I had some games while I was driving at "full speed" and a tank gets spotted far behind.

I shoot and hit it dead center without any aiming , just turn and click while I was driving....very ridiculous but thats just luck and sometimes you're also unlucky.

But gotta say , shooting 4 times in a row a tank that isnt moving is quite stupid....one times or 2 times ok but 4 times .....

Some scenarios to take into consideration with situations like this:

1. Both tanks non-ruski: he got lucky, you did not. RNG on for both.

2. Your tank non-ruski / enemy tank ruski: a normal thing cause ruski tanks have reverse accuracy numbers. And If its a derp gun its gonna hit you even if it has missed. RNG off for him ofc.

3, Your tank ruski / enemy tank non-ruski: its a game glitch cause this is not supposed to happen, we need a replay for this one

4. Both tanks ruski: he shouted "RUSSIA" when he shot. You did not.

Nonsense.

Enemy had bought more Fort Knox packages than OP and thats all there is to it.

Every once in a while I have a battle where RNG seems to be messing with me, making all my perfectly aimed shots miss or deal 0 dmg one after another. But hey, if it's all really random then it is possible for such terribly unlucky battles to happen. Unbelievably lucky shots are also counted in it altough we all would probably get mad and exaggerate situations like the T49 driving with it's max speed 150 meters away from you and while his howitzer's reticle is so damn big that he could either hit the sky up high or the grass right front of him, he lands a perfect shot to your soft part rolling high and your 1k hp is gone. It happened to me a few times. Still I think, like in all games of all kinds, some people will get lucky sometimes while others will struggle.

 

Do you like board games? I have a friend who has an annoying tendency to roll sixes on the same dice which I thought didn't have "6" side at all, at least for me... RNGesus may bless or curse us each battle and it's better not to focus on it.   

 

EDIT: typo

No no no no....

Fort Knox, RNG, running personal reserves, tin foil EU1/EU2 server switch bad luck, Murphy's laws, Moon phases, last night late supper and strawberry air refresher are all calculations with formulas that involve variables.

Ruski number is a constant.

He did. With enough ruski constant time slows down like in Matrix...

And be careful, the "lil hamsta" might be trolling the forum now, and hearing that his close relatives got shot might upset him.
