8 shots, 1 pen. Lower plate, right angle, gold ammo. No comment. (edit: forgot to add my tank, it was TVP T50/51)

No comment.

You started a thread about it, linked two pictures and even played around with text color and size. I think that counts as more than just a comment...

Besides that, you should at least give us the name of the tank you used, so that we can check tanks.gg and then come back to you to tell you that the probability to penetrate the other shots was quite low anyway, because of the angles.

Man, you've got 18K comments and 17K battles. What's your purpose here apart from whitening WG, huh? Guess you're still paid enough?

Anyway, the tank was TVP T50/51. And the lacking comment was about that amoeba player who earned exp for 7 dings while it was me who actually played, moved on the map, aimed and spent gold ammo.

And you posted 86 times and played 40k matches.

But how is that any relevant?

Do you want me to explain why that is a horribly dumb comment?

You never dinged shots at the front of heavy tanks before?

I'm just here for the popcorn. :popcorn:

 

Note: WG is looking into adjusting RNG for certain guns in the future.

You don't get xp for bouncing shots, the fact you're still alive to inflict more damage is considered enough reward.

What's dumb in the logical conclusion that if you write more than play, with 18K(!) comments, either you're paid by WG or dumb yourself?

 

Now, check out the green dot in the photos (green is the colour of grass). It's right in the middle of the lower plate - only 1 shot of 8 went there, kapish?

 

What's the purpose of aiming then? I'll tell you - there's no purpose. I shall rather get one of the new soviet super armoured, switch off thinking, and run yolo straight ahead. At least that's what WG wishes players to do.

What's not dumb about it?

 

And what does it add to your (rather flimsy) case.

 

Also, where is your replay?

No offense but when you spend more time writing things about a game on a forum - than actually playing that game, you are doing something wrong....

What's wrong with shooting the back of the turret? I know the feeling, you have a clip and a possible victim so you tend to spray it without aiming much. :)

 

TVP gun handling is kinda of horrible and the IS7 armor can be problematic sometimes so yeah...better luck next battle!

 

RNG can be a hateful *****

I don't see how.

 

My gaming time is limited by having to spend several hours a day sat in an office pretending to work, my forum time is not so limited.

 

And still you didn't answer my question.  How does this make your tin foil hat theory more sane?

Enough for the amoeba to die. If it hadn't been for RNG, he wouldn't have survived 2 shots. He had no right to live with his 'playstyle'. That guy spent all his game behind one rock, in the middle of the map. A place where nobody normal goes in a heavy tank. I did not care about him for most of the game cause he was harmless. But when time came, I thought it was worth to earn some dmg on him. Well, RNG thought different...

 

It's a noob-protection mechanism. That's all it is.

 

And I see you are another poet here, almost 30K comments, impressive...

Actually, it was fully aimed, the guy was a sitting duck, and the lower plate was at a better angle than the back of the moving turret.

Everything?

First of all, if you checked some of my posts, you would know that I'd be a rather bad WG peon. Or the first one of those who gets paid for talking badly about his company most of the day. Besides that, only because you have no interest in it, it doesn't mean that there aren't any other poeple who enjoy the social community aspect behind a multiplayergame.

Sooo... yeah. Dumb.

And again: How is any of that relevant here?

You missed some shots at 390m. That's all. Did that never happen before? Did you even fully aim in between shots? Did you never have the opposite before, a lucky hit streak?

What and why, if I may ask?

And is that less or more wrong than playing the game for 4+ hours every single day?

To be fair, most of the comments made on the forums (including quality contributors) take way less time to compose than your average WoT battle. The reasons for that are strangely familiar to those who've played the game. Battles per month (or lack theref) is arguably more relevant, there definitely are some 'offenders' in that category (myself included, at least if you assume this is my only account). OP has kind of a point anyway. RNG's practically the deciding factor above just about everything else, and it's bound to be frustrating when your efforts aren't rewarded (or an enemy's mistake isn't punished). 

 

For what it's worth, I know darn well I'm not alone in considering stuff outside the game itself the best parts of WoT. If there were more decent people playing, I'd remain a permanent fixture. Alas...

your mistake was to not press 2 key.

I suggest you ignore them tbh, so many posts yet so little contributions to the topic at hand and that is 99.9% of times.

Any amount of '2' wouldn't have helped against what amounts to a reticle full of autobounce zones. I'm sure it's entirely random that we now have tanks with 'premium weakspots' however.

 

I recommend not ignoring anyone, by the way, for reaons that are very much apparent (and open to personal interpretation).
