50k is fine.

50k in an angled salvo hit is torturous.

What's bananas is when I have had a run of really bad luck for days which gets bad enough that I accidently sink an allied ship then suddenly RNG becomes good as well MM for next few days or month!?!?

Guess they are not joking around here when they say you need to make a sacrifice to RNG and MM when things get bad, but who knew it had to be an allied ship???

Or maybe Wargaming system detects that it's RNG just crossed the line from annoying to insane and corrects itself so Ammo actually hits ships instead of swinging off in all directions?

 

Had enemy Torps cross paths with my Torps before and little surprised they did not explode underwater since they appeared to be going through each other their paths were so perfectly timed. But somehow the enemy Torps picked up the ID signature of my Torps when they went though each other in an X pattern and my Torps hit the enemy ship and enemy Torps hit one of my allies and it read it as I had killed the allied ship!?

That's when RNG gets at it's most insane since unless my Torps were boomerangs and had returned there was 0 chance my Torps hit an allied ship since only the enemy ship was there and huge island. Allied ship was off to my left and I had fired at enemy on my right side and so definitely the enemy Torps that had came back since I had to dodge those Torps before they hit the allied ship.

If I had known the torp ID glitched I would have eaten those Torps instead of dodging them and Team killed myself with Torps which was deemed impossible for a Cruiser to do lol.

I think it's this.  Past few nights I've been actually dreading playing and found myself doing stuff around the house, procrastinating so I didn't have the time to play as much as usual.  I mean, don't get me wrong, most of it's my fault but after those broadsides missing and bracketing a perfect 90 degree target, dispersion sending the next salvos into the water and the superstructure, shots into the bows of the cruisers doing overpen damage instead of penetrating hits and citadels.  Well it was starting to get a little old for me.  But, the Russian super crate for a win in the Revolution won out against better judgement, logged in and just wanted to do 1 or two games for a win so I could get it. 

I almost quit after two games.  1st game, 35k damage loss, got detonated by 1 carrier dropped Torpedo (hooray free flags I guess).  2nd game was much better.  My shots were doing pretty well, I was raking in citadels for once and my long range shots were landing on target.  I was doing 5k damage per salvo on every ship I came across.  Couldn't defend the base and the enemy team capped it sadly.

3rd game was abysmal, another 20k or so damage, my own fault, I went to the flank that got ignored instead of following the lemming train.

4th game though.  Think RNG just took pity on me at that point.  Max range gun range on my October, enemy Kongo, opening salvo.  Three Citadels.  Close in brawl with an enemy October Revolution, his salvo bounced, I aimed mine for that strip of bad armor in the nose, 11k damage.  Svietlana pestering me all game and avoiding any shells I sent back his way.  Sent an HE salvo at him (was getting ready for close combat with a DD) devastating strike kill when he detonated (after action report shows 0 shells hitting too which I was shocked about).  All in all it just felt like every salvo I fired was a hit for good, if not great damage and put a pretty big smile on my face after how crap I'd been playing for awhile up to that point. 

First time in a bit that I wanted to keep going and keep playing, but my procrastination meant that I couldn't keep playing...  stupid job making me wake up so early in the morning. :fish_sleep:

Haha, it's nice to finally meet my alt as well. I'm, uh...slightly well known here on the forums, though I've not posted as much in the past few months. That might be the source of your troubles. Sorry for getting in your way on warships today. :Smile_hiding:

Oh, god damnit, beaten to the punch!

 

Basically, the devil and one of his (kinda hopeless) generals are forced to flee to our world, but are stripped of their powers. Satan takes up a job trying as a part-timer at a local branch of totally-not-McDonald's.

 

It's a fun show, plenty of good gifs from it too XD
