    Hello all
    I've just performed a small test against a defender with 55 defence points with my carronade, calculations on the screen below.
    Conclusion:
    • carronade in most cases do less damage than it should
    • strange random behaviour
    The question for the dev team why each projectile has different damage?

    Let me answer for you :),there's a random damage mechanic for all healing and damaging points which is +/- 10%
    Say you have a 100damage(on it's item stat) cannon,when firing, the damage can be up to 110 or as low as 90,randomly.

    Yes, that should be the case but it's more than 10, up to 15%, so this affects carronade dramatically

    90 % of 1100 is 990. All of your shots are above that? What am I missing?

    That's cuz your sample size is only 10 shots.

    Agreed, sample size is too small. Also make sure you understand that a Defender is the worst ship to test a Carronade on because of the large defense points they carry.

    It works like this: If you hit a Defender that has +25 defense with a torpedo it will reduce torpedo damage by -25. If you hit that same defender with a 5-shot Carronade, it will apply the defense to each projectile, reducing damage by as much as -125 points. With a low level Carronade it could become a HUGE decrease in damage.

    Look on the screen test, than write something ... pfff for real.

    The goal of this test show more shots below average damage calculation. So , it’s can be some bugs or just small shots for test. So try same test again with 100 shots, our data should be more correctly and truly.
    Thx, for this topic @TheFixer27, good job anyway.

    huh... I never notice this before... I used to play WoT, so this is kinda like that High Roll and Low Roll (dmg) system that they have.
