This is how RNG works at its worst.

 

I don't mind losing 70% of the games but when my hitrate lands from 70% to 20% these are the results.

 

If I can not handle this how it is supposed to be handled by a newcomer?

have they done something with RNG recently?

 

As I've noticed an increase in bounces on stuff I always normally pen?

Of course, you are totally rested, hydrated, well fed.  Not distracted by kids, parents, the world in general.  Not wound up by the game.  Not overly focused on a specific game target.  Sat properly, have fully working equipemnt, stable internet.  And not looking for excuses as to a poor session.

 

I majoritively play poorly because of myself and distractions / issues around me.  Sure, RNG does not help.  But I find it is an accumulation of issues not the one thing that is out of my control.

 

Also, losing 7 out of ten is hardly a guideline as to the rest of your play is it.  Everybody has bad days.  Given you have fewer than most, I would suggest one of the above issues has rather more to do with it than RNG.

I don't know/ I don't care if they done it or not, what I am saying is that RNG sometimes becomes absurd and this is quite hard to swallow.

 

And the combination between an absurd RNG, 3/5/7 and other bizarre things may be a big turn off for playing, especially for newcomers who can not understand what is happening.

And your solution?

 

Rig it?

 

I'm not really sure what your issue is.  A 30% win rate from 10 battles?  So you lost 3 battles which "on average" you would have won.

^ This !!! I believe 80% of my poor performance can be explained by personal factors (tough day at work, kids, health, ...) and only 20% by RNG, MM , "special" ammo or awful tanks...

You can't rig something twice. Unless you're WarGaming...

Precisely so, my master takes care of everything.

And yet my win rate fluctuates wildly on different days.

Explain this, pet.

Ah congrats QPR is finally free from incarceration!

 

Regardless of topic this in an important day

 

 

Is QPR the Nelson Mandela of WOT?

Nor are you dead apparently.

Oh great, qpranger is back.

 

Should we open a sweep stake to see how long it takes him to say something asinine enough to get banned again?

 

My bet sub 1 month.
 

someone open a thread with a poll.

Read again what I wrote: I don't mind losing but I do mind when a stupid concept as RNG becomes too absurd and keeps me from playing. With 20% hitrate it can't be named as playing.

I don't think that it's my job to find a solution. Usually, things don't work well because people tend to do someone else's job instead of doing their own job.

 

As a member of this community I voiced my concerns, that's all, saying that things become absurd sometimes.

OK, I'll put it another way.

 

What outcome would you like to see from any change which might be made?

As a simple costumer I would want a RNG with lower impact that it is now.

 

Losing or winning is one thing, being reduced to a useless player is another thing. Useless player = no pleasure of playing.

Well somehow I gotta agree with that , sometimes Im looking at a tank out in the open and shot like 4/5 times and none did hit...hitting the ground or shoot the air.
Then they finally point their gun at you (while only your turret is visible) you're getting hit right in the face when they just dont aim at all.
You cant tell me that kind of stuff has anything to do with skill from the person that is playing, its just stupid rng.
They just should reduce it a couple % and it will be better in my opinion.
Then the only one to blame for missing shots is you.

Were you playing the T49 with the DERP gun by any chance?
