ANSWER THIS WG, HOW THE FLYING F DO YOU MISS SO MANY FULLY AIMED SHOTS? IN A TANK THAT HAS 0.28 ACCURACY?? WHY IS THE RNG PROGRESSIVLY GETTING WORSE????? 8 YEARS I NOTICE THINGS. YOU HAVE SPOILT THIS ONCE GOOD GAME BY RIGGING THIS MECHANIC TO SUIT BETTER PLAYERS OR PLAYERS WHO SPEND MORE. NOT SPENDING ANYMORE MONEY ON THIS RIGGED GAME. ABSOLUTE CRAP. GIVING THIS GAME NOTHING BUT BAD REVIEWS FROM NOW ON

All caps, multiple punctuation marks, baseless conspiracy theory, a like from the hamster. All the hallmarks of quality.

OP; providing a replay could help us

 

You can miss 8 fully aimed shots with a 0,28 accuracy gun easy if you:

- Don't lead (properly) on a fast moving target

- Try to pixel-shoot that tiny cupola peeking out at 400 meters

- There's an unspotted tank in front of your target & he's tanking all the shots

In case that OP means 'didn't do damage' with missing (it takes all kinds)

- The armor is just too thick / too angled / too spaced

 

A replay could help in assessing if the situation is truly as odd as described my OP. Or just something else at play (I suspect range & moving targets)

 

Case in point of weird things people do in this game: E-25 beliefs in the school: 'if I shoot him enough, I pen him!' Right....

 

Above image could easily be a rage post of *I shot my target 10 times in the side & I could not pen him! DUMB RNG! OP TANKS!*

While replay would just reveal that said rageposter is just oblivious to certain game mechanics.

I guess it's time to press "w" and go a bit closer to the enemy than the red line.

I wonder if OP complains when RNG works in their favour and every shot hits its mark?

 

Ultimately there are games wherein RNG effectively hates you and thus you always miss, but that is just the luck of the draw.

 

If this scenario continues for 100 consecutive games then you may have a valid gripe - if you can substantiate your claims with tangible evidence, aka Replays.

RNG is actually a bit odd in this game.

 

A SkorpG fully aimed at a target halfway across the map is going to hit it nearly every time, and roughly most of the shots are dead on.

 

But...

 

I've had one recent game where it missed every single shot (same distance), with shells going to the rim of the aiming circle, (and I was unspotted firing at stationary targets, so I had all day to wait to aim fully).

Also, in my review of this TD when I bought first it, for the first few games it was firing shells like they were laser guided.

Both of these games were unusual.

 

That's not what I would expect from unmolested RNG...

 

If I were running an online game, I'd probably tweak RNG to achieve some kind of subtle equalising of outcome.

I think it's been reported before that these seem to fit a win/lose cycle period of a few days

 

Certainly last night I lost ten games in a row, some were 14:1, that's pretty unusual too

 

Bear in mind we are all pretty used to how well or badly we play, so we'd expect to see the same outcome in pretty much every game, even accounting for an odd increase in sub 45% players lately.

On the contrary, it is exactly what you would expect.

OP is apparently not looking for dialogue but just want to shout his thoughts. Closing before this topic turns into mess.
