Why does this go on after updates?

Since I really haven't been playing much, I had forgotten about this, but it really gets old, and once again reminds me of why I don't spend much on this game.

After an update, suddenly my guns all feel off. Can't cit anything. can't pen anything, can't buy a kill. Doesn't matter what ship, they all become ineffective. I'm suddenly doing half my average damage in ships I normally do well in.

This seems to go on after almost every update, and takes days before things feel "back to normal".

Anyone else ever notice this?

It's typical.   RNG aka "Rigged number generator"

Although i'm not sure why it only happens to you after patches.   Must be broken.

Nope, never have. Nothing changes during the patch concerning those characteristics unless stated by the patch notes, so I'd say it's nothing more than your imagination.

I notice that obvious confirmation bias is obvious.

If you aren't playing much then restarting after a new patch maby your aim is a bit rusty and it takes a few days to get back into your grove. Just a guess

I'll take "WTH" for 600, Pat...

I would love to take a ride on this merry-go-round as I have noticed something similar, but not related to patches...but I wont. Your problem, like mine, was succinctly covered in your first sentence:

"Since I really haven't been playing much."

I take many breaks from the game for school and work and notice that, when I come back, my shooting is like a sh*t sandwich. After reflection I noticed that I was going from US to KM to RN without really working a set ship to get a handle on the guns before jumping lines. Makes sense...we all want to maximize our daily wins.

Its just rust--i know, I know...after xxxx battles, we all know our ships and their guns, right? Nope...its easy to lose the touch required on these guns after a break from the game. Dont sweat it too much...you will be back to nuking people in no time.

Nothing but rusty aim. I've found it's most pronounced my MO/Montana/Yamato, but it's happened in my T10 cruisers too.

There's a cap for that
