Default winMBT low percentile hits

I noticed that in the DOS version of MBT very low percentile shots (under 20%) seemed to have a very high hit average, whereas 55% shots don't. This also seems to be occurring in winMBT too.

Is this correct or is it a coding error; and if so can it be fixed?

Mmmmhhh in a game that I just finished I received lot of AA fire with 1-3% of hitting probability, and believe it or not, not a single airplane was damaged!


In another game, enemy ATGM infantry with 99% of hitting probability against my APCs and tanks have always hit, reducing my forces to an horde of crews running like hell!

Glad I am not the only one, this feature of the game really annoys me.

I haven't noticed that. I find the hits in a game seem to even out the % of hit/miss.

OF course I have had the battle when I had a Cav tank plt fire at a on coming T-62 12 times and miss all of those shots. also had a hit at 4000 meters also.

I thought that I had once noticed this, but concluded it was a psychological thing. I think we are more likely to remember a 55% miss than a hit, as well as remembering a 20% hit more than a miss, because those things go against our expectations.

I guess the only way to double check is to get a mechanical counter and do an experiment.

I also see most 40-50% chances as a near auto-hit. I cant understand how 5 out of 6 shots that supposedly have a 40-ish percent chance to hit are scoring.

I see this quite consistantly too. Like the rest of you, I figured it was just me too.

Noticed the same thing :40-55% chance hits one time ou of 4, whereas 15-20% ones hit half the time. Weird ...

I have noticed that T-62 tanks with a %1-3 chance to hit are taking my drones out at 1200+ meters regularly. Last battle I played I lost 8 drones to T-62s within 10 or less hexes of entering play.

This accurcy of the tank MGs has kept me from usinging any AC but drones.

So is there anyway for the gamers to fix this problem in a later release?
