I can handle the absolutely terrible RNG you gave me earlier which caused all my shots to splash around a broadside dd, but then I get [edited] battleship controls that cause a battleship to turn in the COMPLETE OPPOSITE direction to the one I specified. (I don't have replay but in the screenshots below it's turning RIGHTWARD which caused me to be unable to shoot a full salvo.)

WG fix this

Just a thought, but have you turned off the "collision avoidance system" in the game controls screen?

I turned that off ages ago, hated WG's noob-friendly "feature" constantly taking away my controls.

I see what your problem is...

It's your ping. Wows is really awful to play with over 200ms ping

And you're 100% sure it didn't get reactivated by some patch or another?

Only other explanation would be packet loss, what with your ping I can see happening.

High ping plus low frame rate equals all kinds of funky stuff.  I don't see the collision avoidance icon on the screen so I'm guessing this is a connection issue...

Actually, you're the one that needs to fix something.

You are having connection issues.

Notice how in the first few screen shots the ping is -9 (your bearing doesn't change at all on these), then it jumps to ~400 (and your ship starts to turn).

Your mostly likely having connection interrupts to the server.

I would check your modem and/or router, cable connections. If all is OK I would then run PingPlotter to try and locate where the issue is.

WG support should be able to walk you through tracing you connection to the server with PingPlotter.

Also, in the quick search I did on google, some AMD processors can cause negative ping if you happen to have one. If you do I'll leave it up to you to Google-Fu that yourself.

The -9 Ping makes me think you were temp disconnected from the server and having massive lag spikes.

The -9 ping value is the telling tale here,  High ping is a poor connection.  A negative number is a disconnect.

Were you using waypoints?  When you set waypoints the collision avoidance turns back on until you take off the waypoints.
