    This happened a couple days ago. These two consecutive games just about sent me through the roof when it happened. I had at least 4 or 5 consecutively damaged ammo racks across the time frame of 2 consecutive games. I don't know a lot about math but I'm pretty sure thats not supposed to happen if the coding, and RNG is correct especially when you have safe stowage already 100% on your crew skills. I know that i may be a bit biased since it happened to me but I wanted to get an unbiased outsider opinion. Preferably someone who has more knowledge than I do on this matter (Probably the whole community).  Thanks for your input in advance

      See here for how safe stowage (and module damage in general) works:

      When I was in high school my statistics teacher had the entire class stand up and distribute ourselves randomly about the room. Once we'd all stopped moving he pointed out that we had, consciously or otherwise, distributed ourselves fairly evenly spaced from one another. He then said that is not a random distribution, that's an even distribution, our mental concept of random was flawed.

      Random number generators, by definition, have streaks of identical numbers. If they were set up to always have a different result than they did the previous roll they are not random.

      In a game governed by RNG you occasionally see things like this. It is completely normal.

      There is no mechanic to prevent this and the nature of a random number generator dictates that this is possible, albeit unlikely.

  4. Module damage finally changed, as of 9.18 artillery of a given caliber has half the module damage of the same caliber on a tank or TD.

  6. Emblem changes are NO MORE! Heard it first on an RU stream, and hearing it in more places as well

      A bunch of the announcements about this not happening have suddenly disappeared.

      You've been lied to. It's even worse than the 9 or 10.

      I figured it wouldn't be great, but I'm an enthusiast. Also, really not much else left to acquire.

  9. The Type 4 Heavy and Type 5 Heavy are tall enough to drive into the Erlenberg river and continue fighting.

      New CW attack strategy in the making. If you stay low enough in the water they'll never see you on the way to the other cap.

  10. Which should be my next tier 10 Batchat 25T or IS-7? About to convert around 400k free exp.

      The IS-7's handling is also clownshoes, but it can sit in a strong position and aim thanks to armoring. Bat has to either keep distance or get really close and not stop.

      My preference is the Bat, because I love lights and zoom zoom stuff. The IS-7's awful terrain resistance bothers me, the tank could be so fast but just isn't.

      Do you like light tanks or heavy tanks more? BatChat for the former, IS-7 for the latter.

  12. Stuck in a meeting I don't need to be in about moving our software from DSM 4 to DSM 5, apparently it now supports WHODAS scores. That's pronounced "Who'd ass".

    The medical field is weird.

      Yeah, that's what this was about. Doesn't really have anything to do with me, I'm internal IT, not support or development, but clearly because I manage the servers that hosted clients run on I need to know about this. :-|

  14. Tier 10 #28 unlocked. Unfortunately, it's the Maus. Sooo... keeping VK4502B in garage. I'm tempted to buy the Maus if it is ever on sale/on-track, and try to scrounge a crew for it.

    The next tier 10 is further off-- about 60K to go. Beyond that, nothing of note.

      Because really, with an E-100 lurking, I'm going to take the time switching ammo types so as not to offend your tender sensibilities.

      We got a bye, so one less match than most other teams. Consequently, even though we lost two matches and the other teams lost two matches, we got turfed out of the top 1% prize bracket. Your final score is determined by earned points/possible points. Had we had one more match we most likely would've won and then qualified for the prize, but we were not allowed to try our hand at winning.
