Why is it when I need sinks & I play a DD or cruiser I spawn where I need to cover a large amount of open sea to engage the enemy?

Why is it when in Killer Whale & I go north to take on the cruiser & BB I must be set on fire before RNG allows me it damage the cruiser? Once I've been set ablaze I can sink the cruiser.  BTW, when half of your broadside falls short & the other half is long, the problem is not your aiming point.

Why is it when I need to start fires for a mission if I run a flag that increases the chance of fires I'm lucky to start one on ships like the Smolensk & Atlanta? No, I do not have IFHE on either.

These are not every now & then occurrences but most all the time.

Why is it that people are so eager to find purpose and meaning behind RNG?

umm... ?  the game hates you?  in some previous life you must have annoyed some of the pixels..  or.. Luck of the draw? 

 I like in raptor rescue when the torps show up like 30-40 seconds after the ship's sink and you were only 3k apart.. 

Last night i was in my T61 chasing the 2nd carrier, i was less than 5k away at one point.. i even had my module on upgrading torp speed..  i fired 4 sets of torps - 1 launcher at a time and i never once hit it with a torp.. That CV maneuvered better than a DD, started and stopped on a dime and turned like nobodies business, I was low health and trying to stay just far enough away so secondaries would not get me..  Turns out the Raptor got sunk and we lost..   When we lost all i could think of was "Dam i suck".. 

I was using my Fuso on occasion in Killer Whale.. and honestly i gave up as no matter what i did, AP, HE, Close, Mid range, Far way.. i could not hit CRAP..  Sure "occasionally" i whacked something, but less then 10k away and can't hit a fort? seriously.. either I really suck or something is wonky in the game in that scenario with that BB..

so the answer is? who knows.. "Sh*t happens"..

First off to answer your questions, simply, the Game is Rigged! 

I am not saying that being a cry baby either. They are all Rigged! World of WC, any first person shooter, Brand X (which I wont name or abbreviate). They are rigged if nothing else just by the simple algorythmes that make them run. I am not sure how Rigged they are with the actual programing that makes them do X and Z, but you can bet there is a little of that in there also. If there wasn't then the game would get boring real fast. 

The issue is like you pointed out. You set up your ship to accomplish certain objectives. You have a sense of strategy, You are a fair player, and or have decent games most of the time. Then you have your operation, and game in line, and Bam. You get gang [edited] by the ai. 

You eat 8 torpedoes from some DD from 8km and the ships you shoot you are not hardly doing any damage to no matter what you are shooting. You have on HE and they broadside to you, you switch to AP and they turn to nose you. yea, a little convienient that the computer knows where you are, and what you are doing, but you have to guess about them. I swear I have seen torps change direction to hit me. 

I got so pissed the other day at the AI that I didn't play for a day to breath that S  t off.

Then I was happy and Irritated that WG took my idea and made the Mainz. I called it Swanewede after a town in Germany that I was stationed by in the Army in 1989 to 92.

2 years ago I posted a kit bash version of the Hipper with 15cm triple gun turrets. (LOL) now if they will take my idea's for an Italian DD Soldati, USS Nevada 1943, and or the Spahkruezer I would be thrilled also. They have already modeled the O class Battlecruiser. They are probably just waiting for a good time to milk the most money out of it. The new German CV's IDK, I will reserve judgement on those. The new T9 German DD, they can adjust the HP, and Damage and range it can shoot. The length and area of smoke, the detectability ect, but it is a T6 model at best with 4-5 in guns, come on its more like the Mass. T9 it should be more like Z52 or Z46. The Spahkruezer should be T10.

Anyway enough ranting.

Similarly, when I take out Simms or Kidd hoping for a multi cv match so I can make it rain plane parts, I get  matches with no carriers at all. Almost Everytime!!

Pass the tinfoil.

Cruisers and DDs are called "Escorts". BBs and CVs are called "Capital ships".

There has been a tremendous buffing of DDs in this game to make them into capital ships but for some it has just not gone far enough.

i tend to get stuck into more realistic thoughts .. when i play this game... i see a couple dd's and a cruiser heading to one flank, i figure hey, i will go and support them... only to finally arrive and they have all bailed on me or died and i find myself with no support ... (mid tiers..)   sheesh.. i need to get out of that mindset.. the only players looking out for each other on your team are probably in a division.

Some people have chat turned off.  Some people might be on a chat ban and couldn't reply if they wanted to.  Those are two reasons.

Well, people also try the same for some conceptual art, Yoko Ono, reggueton, politicians... the list is vast

Sarcasm is hard to convey in text on a screen, but I'll take your word for it :)

for me too.

PS use a good piece of tinfoil for the hat. That cheap stuff just doesn't hold up to heavy use of tinfoil hats

This is true. Thanks for taking my word.

There is certainly no need to apologize as my comments were as much tongue in cheek as your original post.

Been there bro...
Specially with fires, I jump in the most known ships to start fires, start a game, set 1 fire, he heals, I say, cool, now comes the perma fire, 30+ shots after still waiting the perma fire.
Or sailing in my Yammy, and I see a nice and juicy broadside less than 10kms from me, boom!!! overpens everywhere; or just 2 hits from 9, and 1 overp ofc, that thing never miss.
Or landing 16 pen shots to a broadside fuso at 8km and doing 0 dmg. Yup, that happened to me...
And then I go to see some videos of well known ppl and most of the times looks like they have all the damn luck that I don't.
And is frustrating, very... I'm so close to park the Yamato for ever.
