an orgy of weird situations: shoot the back of the fleeing opponent, no damage, do it again, since he doesn't stop, no damage ( 'cause I thought there are the weak spots ),,, wasted ammo = wasted chances to win the fight... he finally manages to turn his turret, shoots back, and you burn like a muppet, shot in the face, where the stronger armour is... no wonder players are waiting in collusion in the corners for the time to pass and let others to try to do the kills... since there's no guarantee that there's a slight scent of logic in this ...

 

do they (WG) ever wonder why the game is dieing ( for the ney sayers, just try to get into a low tier game, expect to wait 2 minutes on prime time, meaning there are no new players, all moved up, or bought their way up ) with all their giveaways ?

 

do players even wonder what we are for WG? I tell you: we are dogs, to be tagged, to be ordered to fetch the wallets or credit cards for the next op tank in the shop... and they cannot respect a dog... 'cause, you know, it's just a dog. dogs must be happy with crumbs from the masters table, true saying from the book.

 

steel hunter? a failed mode, a fart joke, it sums, in short, the flaws of the whole game.

Some of the hulls you see are rather well-armoured against same-tier guns (especially stock)- provided their armor model is what it looks like. The Red Dawn is seemingly a T-43 hull, for instance, which is mostly 75mm of sloped armor. The German tank has the Panther hull with 'bugged' sideskirts and a front plate that works rather well against T5-ish guns.

 

Can't argue against the apparent popularity - but being disappointed over Steel Hunter means you expected it to be more skill-based than regular WoT.

Mostly enjoying the event but I understand the op frustration... I have had a lot more WTF moments in Steel hunter than in regular gameplay.   Bouncing the rear of a tank, with both of us and burners going.... Two or three times for them to do exactly as the op said is at least once a night.

I once tried to face a German tank in my American tank and I dinged 7 shots in a row. Tried the cupola, sides even. Nothing.
Don't play Americans.
Also, check the tank models. They show you critical components. Did you show your sides?

I didn't mind it too much really. Maybe it would be better with less RNG but because it's the same for everyone then I found it balanced out so didn't get too salty about it other than the immediate moment and then I just played back into the next battle quickly. There was times I should have been dead and buried but lucked out with some nice RNG that made the other guy bounce his shots that should have killed me while my shot set him on fire and totally turned the engagement on its head resulting in me winning... and visa versa. I thought it was a fun mode though I haven't played it since I reached lv25 since there didn't seem like much point unless there's decent rewards there after.

The RGN is just a cover for bots.

There is no such thing as common sense.  There is social and deductive reasoning.  Also the phrase common sense cannot be applied to a video game where the systems and rules have to be learned.  Saying a system is broken because you do not like it, again, is not a failure of social or deductive reasoning that is just a fallacy.  You don't point out the times when RNG is on your side.  Should I assume you want the positive part of RNG kept or is that just skill? 

 

Nobody is forcing you to spend money.  How you choose to spend your money should be up to you.  Sure, WG can attempt to make you want to spend your money.  Implying they are attempting to rob you is again, false.  Quoting from the bible is hardly a way to prove a point.  Given it is the bumper book of contradictions (or you believe that slavery is okay).

OP is still complaining about RNG in the Steel Hunt mode, but it hasn't stopped him playing it. Strange.

I agree with the OP on the RNG thing,   I too am still playing it though.  Nothing strange about finding fault with something but not quitting.  (Mrs is still married to me after 30 years and she found fault from day 1  :teethhappy:)

There seems to be a larger delay between the client crosshair and your real crosshair in Steel Hunt. I haven't bothered to turn on server crosshair because it makes me feel ill, but it seems you often hit shots where you were aiming earlier leading to misses when circling each other.

Here's my new RNG of late, believe me I'll gladly take all the other forms!

But the OP was complaining about exactly the same thing last week and declared the mode "dead" to him. And yet here he is, playing still and complaining still.

I think its a brand new mode, in a new environment and servers,so bugs are natural.

 

RNG its a bit frustrating, specially the fires.

Ah  I see your point.   Dead usually supposed the end of things...   Maybe he's playing zombie mode :)

reached level 15 yesterday so not afraid to lose some chevrons deceided to go out fighting a few times.... man that RNG is DAF. shoot the enemy 2 times in the back and 1 in the side... 0 dmg. He turns his turret with autoaim driving away from me... penetration. Both had the non-upgraded german tank.

Sure WG. Sure. Nice. Guess I will camp like a biatch again now.

 

I also understand now why replays are turned off... this is just tooo dumb.
