No matter what you do in BBs it seems like the dispersion is just going to screw with you? I get it, the Massa isn't know for its accuracy but several times had a broadside target at 13km, shots proceeded to just straddle the target or get 1 pen for 4 volleys in a row...it was like the game had decided 'oh yeah, you're not hitting anything today...have fun!'

That's why I play high RoF ships. The only thing that matters is your ablitly to aim and lead a target. None of that bs rng that bbs suffer from.

I just love it how you never know if that volley on broadsiding Mino will delete him or maybe overpen only.

Part of the game and reason I prefer DDs than BBs. Torps to the face and outcome is always same :D

Yup, all battleships will eventually lose in the WG Dispersion Casino. These games are a fact of bb's life. Play battleship Stalingrad to avoid this :Smile_trollface:

Meh, its still pretty inconsistent. The high sigma makes the shells fall in such weird patterns...

Yeah, after getting two of those battles in a row, I usually call it quits for the day and do something else.

 

In a CV, it is this moment:

The game does not want you to win, so why bother. ;)

I've noticed that some days, all that can go wrong will go wrong. On others, just certain ships will be "cursed" and even though you might to really well and consistently top score, you won't be able to get a win in them that day for love or money.

 

It's smart to stop playing on those kinds of days. At least the ships that aren't behaving, if not entirely. Knowing when to stop is a skill I'm getting better at, albeit slowly.

get to 5km. then you can't miss :Smile_veryhappy:

Had a battle(sunk 4 out of 7 enemies( with last enemy at this distance.

 

At five succeding salvos not a single hit.

Only splashes around that target.

 

Had over 45% Hitrate this battle.

 

Battle lost because the enemy hits my 75 percent ship and detonated me.

Mind you I've also had the inverse where I've just fired out a shot in my Musashi and gone "eh...terrible aim on my part, none of those are going to hit..." and then one stray shell proceeds to just peg a part of a cruiser and suddenly I've citadelled them. RNG giveth and RNG taketh away.

Was in operation KW with 3 of my BB's, one after the other. First was with Warspite, and the guns trolled me really bad, Then came a game in Dunkerque, and the gunnery was abmyssal. Last one was in the PEF, and if not for being a secondary ship, I would have been at the bottom of damage done.

 

Called it quits after that, since the game was trolling me so badly.

The good thing with Smolensk is that you already know that you will only get overpens with BB AP, so you can´t get disappointed   :crab:

At least if they are close to you and showing full broadside.
