Hey, I don't know why, but Wargaming removed the 25% up/down RNG for penetration, and I don't understand why they do this. The only factor affecting penetration is distance now?

this could either be good or bad. 25.6% of the games where I do good was only possible because of RNG.

How about dmg rng - is it staying? I wouldn't mind if they remove all the rng - is there some reason it's a positive thing? In poker the only positive is it keeps bad players with a chance to win in each hand, but over the long run, higher skill will win. Same as WoT?

Changes to other tanks were also not in the patch notes . Your point ?

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

I find it strange such a... big mechanic is just gone without any announcement and like i said, seems currently only being discussed on this thread.

I mean, if penetration RNG truly gone many streamer will got collective "Wait, What??"

Oh i get it. When you hover over the shell in garage, it shows the average penetration over distances. 

 

 

Key word, average.

 

Miss that word and the thread makes a little sense.

RNG is bad for the competitive scene. I'm in favor of it because I'm a casual that can't be bothered to get good.
 

RNG is positive at times. like when a tomato ammo racks a unicum and you thank your lucky stars you don't have to deal with them anymore. RNG also helped me a lot, for example: ridiculous snapshots or highrolls that saves me or the enemy gets a -25% penetration against me.

It also screws me a lot sometimes like when i fail to kill a 100hp batchat on my stb at 100-300m range even after 4 shots due to my shells flying whichever way they please but I still do not hate it. I embrace RNG.

On that note, RNG can be great like that one time a Tiger I bounced a shell off of my GW Panther (lol wut?).

 

On the flip side RNG can be quite screwy, like the amount of times I couldn't save a team mate because a shell went wide instead of one shotting a heavy that was about to flank a team mate, or like today failing to reset cap because three of my shells landed everywhere around the one enemy who was capping, except on the enemy. And he was stationary the entire time as well. I'd bet that medium must've been laughing.

 

Edit:

Actually I just checked the replay, and it was a Tiger (P) from whom I blocked an AP shot in my GW Panther. Still, lol wut?

Rng make the game fun. It adds more gambling factor to game, which is very addictive. "Will it roll high?", "will this trickshot connect?", "will their arty hit me if I go there?".
