Damage display bug.  Someone captured this on video for me, so I'm borrowing their vid (with permission) to show you the bug.  



@~1:56 Anon here takes a shot into the side of an enemy KV-4.  At the time he fires the round, he's zoomed.  Before the round lands, he zooms out.  The audio says "Penetration" and you can see the HP bar has reduced in size, so the hit was counted correctly by the server.  However because he zooms out before the round lands, you do NOT see the damage roll indication above the enemy tank.  


I'm not sure if this is new to 2.5 or old.  FWIW, it happens to me in all manner of tank types/classes/maps.  The key piece is managing to zoom out after firing the round but before the round lands on the tank.

But the damage bar went down, so it registered damage.  It's just not showing the number.

Happens to me so often I am used to it.  I just look to see if the bar went down or to hear what the guy says, or see if I a module indicator appears.  I brought this up a while ago but no on seemed to know what I was talking about.

I've noticed this too.  It's been happening for a couple of updates at least.

I'm experiencing a different problem. My hits are not registering damage. Recently, I registered 17 penetrations with a 200 alpha gun, but only got credit for 2300 dmg. Only one of those was a tracking shot. Even compensating for low rolls, 2300 is way too low from the potential 3400 that should have been. A few nights ago I scored a hit on the side of an E75. Flat side, not angled. It wasn't red and I clearly heard penetration being called, but did no damage. It doesn't happen all the time, but sucks when it does, specially when you work so hard to win a match only to lose by this nonsense. WG should fix this asap.
