M3 Lee........I haven't killed one yet,  I pound the snot out of them front, sides, tracks, rear, cupola...nothing  but "bounced off' "That didn't go through" "richotech", they drive away or I die in 2 hits. This tank analyzer guide is not working http://www.worldoftanksguide.com/cgi-bin/tank_analyzer.cgi. The pic doesnt disply the info on weak spots.  In fact no material I have seen does?  Is this a secret?

Hmm. What tank are you using when you encounter the issue?

I see no colored areas on any enemies in any tanks I have or have had. I do notice some shades differ but I have to be rubbing up against them when I see that.

Ok, def use premium rounds. You still haven't stated what tank and ammo you are using. If using HE, stop doing that. The m3, if I remember correctly, is one of the first tanks one encounters that has "real" armor. You need AP or APCR(premium). Shoot very low in front, sides and rear should give you no issue, as long as you are shooting straight at them. The more angled the armor, or the shot, the more likely it is to bounce.

You might have to learn the weak spots on tanks while we wait for Wargaming to add colour blind support.

It will not penetrate, but it will do splash damage.

Gold means the he will do partial damage. Red means a bounce or very little damage. No color means it should penetrate and do full damage

You can download the armor inspector for your device and learn where to shoot on the enemies. Things like machine gun ports, lower front plates are general weak spots. They should be releasing a color blind mode soon, I don't see why it would take very long to implement

Sorry to hear that.  You will need an incredible memory or rely upon the usual-and-customary weak spots... lower glacis, turret ring, drive wheels, rear, etc.

I can't pen the Lee in my Valentine either.  You have to load some premium rounds.  It's the only way.

You don't really need an incredible memory, PC has no hitskins and people do fine

Hello.  Just want to make something clear (to me).  There are people who play World of Tank Blitz who see "red" or "gold" on the tanks they are targeting that indicates ability to cause damage?  Like in the tutorial where it showed red on the spots you couldn't pen and made you move?

 

i play on an IPad.  I don't see that.  Do I have a setting I can change or is it just not available othe IPad?  Seems like it would be a huge help.

 

thanks

There are very few tanks that the M3 can face that can't pen it, you shouldn't need APCR.

There is no switch for pen skins. They are always there. You only see them in sniper/zoomed view. They will not appear if you are in standard/arcade view. You won't see any color if you can pen anywhere. Red areas cannot be penned (are are low percentage pen shots), and gold, which only applies to HE rounds, means no (or unlikely) pen, but you will still cause splash damage if you shoot there.

I have noticed with my Jackson that hitting it broadside causes damage, also the hatches and accessories, pick your spots especially if you are higher then them. I don't use gold rounds unless they are on top of me, and it as last resort. Don't stand in from of them with a weak armored  tank.
