Ok, so I've been having this issue for quite some time but I have been ignoring it assuming it was my problem/fault.

 

Well I can't ignore it anymore, so far it has caused me dozens of misses/or missed opportunities.

 

So when I am in sniper mode and am aiming at a target, if I am near a building or dead tank and i get too close to either the aim reticle jumps off target and "sticks" on the building or tank.  I have to aim far away from the building or dead tank to get the reticle to get "un-stuck" from the object and get back on the tank.

I run my setup with auto-aim off.

this glitch is annoying and I would hope WG can fix this.

Spoiler

Not a bug, just something to overlook. It comes if you are aiming too close to a surface. Put a laser pointer on the ground, the spot turns into a line... KINDA same thing here. System doesnt know what to aim at

I usually run aracde, and I don't get anything, it might be Becuase of the way the gun works when facing a building, it will always point up, so it can't hit a building (You can avoid this by going into sniper) so I recommend you going into sniper, or forcing your gun to point down.

thanks for the input but, I thought that was the whole point of turning OFF autoaim, the system doesn't decide where to aim, my finger does?

thanks for the input, I have seen the issue with the gun jumping into the air while near buildings, however if you refer to my post I am in sniper mode while this is happening and it happens with buildings, dead tanks and rocks.

I've just noticed this same problem in my T29 since the 1.11 update.  I've never had this happen before.  Same thin.... If there's a dead tank near by and the enemy moves, my reticle goes haywire when zoomed in.  The image actually distorted once where half image flipped upside down.  Like a piece of paper twisted in the middle.  It's obviously a glitch and its new for me.  I was playing on iPad 2 (not air) with iOS 8.3 and version 1.11 of the game.
