Hi could anyone tell me or point me in the right direction so i can find out if RNG is calculated for every shot or if it is set at the beginning of the match or indeed personal to the tank i'm in or the team as a whole?Just curious as my gun on my Rudy appears to be bent for the last few days and its made me wonder :)

Heres a quick breakdown.

 

Press fire.

 

Shot direction calculated by server, semi-random position within the current reticle size is chosen (heavily weighted towards the center)

 

Penetration roll (nominal value +/- 25%)

 

Damage roll (average value +/-25%)

 

This happens every time you press fire. These values ae not altered depending on tank, team, player or map or anything else. They are RANDOM.

I feel a slight, subtle smell of a tinfoil

did you start a thread the last time RNG sent 3 shots in a row straight down the centre of the reticule also?

Small disclaimer here; to most players that actually means it is RIGGED. As there's no way you can miss or bounce several shots in a RANDOM setting...

RNG is set when you create an account so it's a matter of creating new ones and dumping the bad ones you get until you are satisfied with the RNG that was given to it. Every time the 'new account counter' reaches 1 million, a golden account is created, but needs monthly subscription of Fort Knox to keep the status. That's how shishx keeps up at the level he's at, but that doesn't come cheap.

You have definitely got it right!

RNG is very very extremely... (and just in case you did not get that the 1st time) BENT!
