What am I doing wrong to have this type of bomb drops 60% of the time??? No, I'm not exaggerating !!! This is a HUGE issue.... (yes, I saw a couple of times falling out of the reticle by very little)

Black = ships

Green = reticle

Red = where the brombs fall

This is starting to piss me off.... around 60% of the times this is what happens.... WHAT DA HECK!?

yeah I do have some cits hit too... I'm not saying like it never happens... but man, huge amount of times I can't even hit ships... like absolute miss with all 3 bombs even when the reticle is perfectly aligned. What I've noticed is that the bombs ALMOST NEVER go near the center... they will tend to go to border lines most of the times, like showed on that image...

Kinda not sure if that's me or what is going on :/

It is why WoWs will never be considered as a real Competitive e-Sport Product. To much random chance.

iirc, there was a nerf(?) a number of months ago where (KM only?) carriers AP bomb drop was adjusted so the bombs fell more often near the edges of the reticle.

Again, can’t remember the details.

Recently, I've found the best method is one of two options, close my eyes when I drop or just leave em parked on the deck.

I'm thinking of getting FDR to play... or maybe midway... this is really frustraiting. I don't enjoy such crap, it's not fun at all.

Graff is the worst.

The prem German t6 hits very nicely, US seem to hit very well.

Yes, my German experience has not gone well.

Note to cv captains ....please make sure to hand out flasks of your pilots favorite booze .

Looks like you forgot that step when they took off on their bombing run.

That's how WG balances the power of the bombs, by making them squirrelly lol.

Number one reason I stick to torpedoes unless I'm bored and waiting on my torpedo bombers to return or needed to find some fighters to drop for friendlies.

Not really a fan of the German Tech tree CV's for good reason as well.

No - RNG is a part of every torpedo, dropped bomb, and  shell salvo.  It is needed for balance...

I used to bore downstairs to the top of the stack filling the screen then released it. Crit every time. The RNG amount is so small as to be anywhere at the stack itself.

some time ago they nerfed the richtofen by doubling the area of the reticle, this means that your chances of hitting the target are effectively halved compared to before.

so maybe that's why

MvR reticle has always done this, similar to Enterprise. It is more noticeable now that the reticle is larger. You can partially get around this by dropping slightly offset with the target ship.

It's not RNG. Bomb is coded to be landing at the edge of the radical more often than middle.

Thx all for the replies!!
