Now, those of you who know me via the forums will know that I'm not prone to whine threads - so take this as a mark of my sincerity.

I'm tired of you WG.

I'm tired of the fact that your 'random' number generator is about as 'random' as something that isn't very 'random'


 

Whether it's in my favour or not the propensity of RNG to shaft someone without even bothering to give them the reach-around would be laughable if it wasn't so bloody irritating.


 

Prem ammo? I can deal with that.

Arty? I can deal with that.

Jap Heavies et al? I can deal with them.


 

But this has reached a point where I find myself becoming increasing annoyed with games that, no matter what course of action is taken, the game will be a loss.

Similarly, when you're on the good side of RNGeezus the games are, quite frankly, boring.


 

So, nuts to this, I'm off to play something else until I get all this sand out of my vagina

40028.

 

It's almost like there's something with the matchmaking, balancing and maps that ensure that the games tend to be very one-sided.

 

The sand explains a lot, actually.

Everyone has their own annoying thing in wot. 

Rng doesn't bother me, because it gives and takes. I bounced jagpanzer shells in some paper tanks like tier 8 Italian medium sometimes.

 

Arty scum, on the other hand, I can't deal with. Given the opportunity, anybody who doesn't just play arty to complete missions would get their accounts permanent banned. If only...

Just noticed I don't have any warning points - can someone report this please?

I feel naked without them.

On my mothers life - logged out of the game, posted this, then had a look on TheChive.

 

Edit: Wonder if it would be the games that hadn't finished before I threw my toys out of the pram?

to the OP

 

it can get really frustrating at times,

 

maybe when Frontline mode returns come back and give it a try

 

Today was an annoying day for me as well, I had a string of defeats followed by a run of wins..its either famine or feast some days!

 

Rng deffo' played a part tonight, or was it was just that my aim was out today, I wasn't drunk, hungry, tired or hungover either,

 

Come to think of it that might be why.

 

:sceptic:

If you think the rng isn't random,  I invite you to prove it.

Every test run so far supports it being random,  but maybe they missed something.

Apple made their music-shuffle less random, which increased its randomness from customer perspective. I'm sure all of us had same song play 3 times even if you have list on shuffle?
I havent played wot for weeks now, finished playing with EBR code and then all enthusiasm disappeared.

Exactly.  Average person doesn't understand how randomness actually works, hence we have issues like the Monte Carlo fallacy.

 

In Apple's case,  I believe they kept a list of the last n tracks and avoided picking those. 

 

I mean,  I'd just have shuffled the tracks, but I guess a random selection even with a history is less memory and processor intensive. Which you need on such a low power device as the iPod shuffle

Started playing Warships again, but even there now the frustration kicks in, still you get tons more FXP than you do here, here it is just aimless grinding, never knowing what to grind  or why in most cases, that is how the game has become for me, I recall months ago i was a total addict, that god that wore off.
