so this whole weekend certain planes have been vastly underperforming for me, I sold my ao level 2 german because its suddenly hot garbage, cant outrun anyone, and its guns are shooting marshmallows. selling my russian planes because suddenly my level 5 cant hit or damage anything, I got 2 kills in a plane I usually average 9 and one of those kills I got when I rammed a plane out of frustration after my guns did no damage after tracking for 20 seconds. whats going on? is anyone else having issues with guns not doing damage? or not hitting a target well within range?

I get that randomly...you're chipping away and no damage taken, or very minimal...I heard it could be lag/packet loss although it doesn't seem to be the same when you get those issues.  I wonder if it's just a bad string of RNG luck at that point.  It's frustrating when it happens.  Same with the continuing ground targets not being designated issue...

Yeah I get that too sometimes. Firing away with no damage done.  Has to be packet loss or lag, only explanation, unless you are certain people, then it is WG after them only.

yes, some battles it seems cant hit anything with the gun that you know well, target right in front of you and its like you are firing blanks.

There have been a lot of server problems over the weekend.  My game client even crashed a couple times.  One game I was parked behind planes I could out-turn hosing them down with bullets and even though I was lighting them up with  hit flashes damage was only occasionally happening.  I don't usually have problems like this

I've noticed that some games my bombs don't do much but my gunner is spot on.  Some games my bombs are awesome but my gunner is napping.  Some games my bombs and my gunner are both AWOL.  Now and then, a real nice game where everything works perfectly. 

 

Don't judge any plane by just one or a few battles.  Give it a rest for a day or two and try it again.  You might be surprised.  Don't rage sell, in other words.

 

I think it's tied into RNG.  The plane classes seem to have different RNGs for different battles.  :Look at that after action report and analyze it a bit.  You can often pick out what class got the nice RNG by seeing how many bots of both teams got stripes.

I will pile on here and say that yes, this has happened to me as well.  I have been lighting up, for example, enemy ADA and almost no hits register.  And this is with, for example, eight .50 cals at 400 meters or less.  

 

Other times, they burn like paper.  

 

I think it's just the client-side processing where your game is showing you one thing, but the server is registering something else (i.e. lag).  Even if your FPS and Ping are good, if the server is getting saturated, all bets are off, I think. 

 

I mean, they probably spec the NA server for 1000 concurrent users, right?  Wouldn't you?

Including bots, yes, maybe.

Sometimes you feel like a nut sometimes you don't.

Almond Joy's got nuts. Mounds don't. Almond Joy's got rich milk chocolate. Coconut and a crunchy nut, too. Mounds got deep dark chocolate. Chewey coconut ooh. Sometimes you feel like a nut. Yeah …

 

 

Well when that happens. LOG OUT.

Alright, I quit.  So many responses to this, it exhausted me...

 

That, and my internet server ran out of the room and won't bring me another Mai Tai.

Hits not registering mostly occurs when shooting at ADA, especially Boomerangs (?) ... coincidence ?

It is for this reason that i dont rely on flashes to indicate damage. I listen to the audio response to damage (that thumpthumpthumpthump)
The sound of the hits also coincides with the damage actually coming off the target (when I use L Alt)

And dont forget that super useful trick ... Did you clear the cache?™  

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...

When I get the impression that I'm shooting with blanks, I look at the enemy's health-bar ... and indeed, sometimes it doesn't go down while it looks like there are hits all over.

Yup and especially on ADA Boomerangs.

Sometimes i have to compensate my lead to a point where i don't see them hitting, but hear them hitting.
This is really weird, the tracerstream then goes directly behind the plane, but i hear the sound of damage registering and i see the plane's HP really going down.

Yeah, I've noticed it too. Tracers show me on target, hits light up all over but no audio and the health bar not moving. Then they start registering again, I put it down to lag even though the ping looks normal.

I bought a quality-ish wired mouse last week, but I'm going to have to adjust my settings down


the dpi is set exactly the @%$& same as the old mouse!!!    How could it possibly be feeling 'wilder'?
