Why the [edited] do we even take the time to aim if the [edited] shot is gonna go [edited] anywhere except where it was aimed at...

 

I know WG doesn't give a single [edited] but for [edited] sake RNG is [edited] out of control...

From a noob’s perspective, I don’t think you are doing that badly. BlitzStar shows you playing about 35 tanks so far this month and you only have 4 with a hit rate in the 70’s. Everything else is in the 80’s. (Not surprisingly, I have managed to have only 6 in the 70’s and 2 in the 60’s).  Your stats aren’t that far from those of the two unicums I picked out of the Hall of Fame. The odds RNG is giving you may suck, but you are still beating them quite nicely.

Hit rate and actually getting the damage are two different things.

And a shot effectiveness percentage of 97.3% tells us what?

It tells you that you are hitting the enemy tank, but not getting any damage from those hits is what I am referring to. I can hit a Maus ten times and get ten bounces.  I get 100% shot effectiveness but a big fat goose egg for damage.

If that's what that tells you, you don't know what it means. Shot effectiveness is the rate that you hit and deal damage compared to the top 100 players in that tank. If you hit a Maus 10 times for 0 damage, your shot effectiveness is 0%.

 

Sockrobber

Damage per battle / hits per battle (note hits, not shots) = damage per hit

This is then reflected as a % versus the result from the average of the top 100 players (by winrate) in that tank.

This is what you said. When you talk about hitting people will reply wih comments about hitting. In fact you are hitting your targets well, just not as well as you might like.

 

If you wanted to talk about damage it would help if you said so in the first place.

Wait, I think I’ve got it. You aren’t hitting as well as you like and when you do hit you are getting low damage rolls. A double whammy. Ok, that is really not good.

 

I usually recommend a sacrifice to appease the RNG gremlins.  Take milk and beer to a tree, pour out the milk, drink the beer and tell the gremlins exactly what you think. I feel better afterwards anyway.

Since your shots weren't being directed by Casper, which was it? Fatso, Stretch or Stinkie?

Ooh, ooh, can I have Stinkie for my ghost shots, please. ‘Cause they are kinda crappy and he’d fit right in. 

 

Hold on, if they are kinda...He’s already there!  (Surprised the gremlins let him in.  Must be a professional courtesy thing).

That's difficult to tell, since you quoted my statement and the reply is directed at my quoted statement.
