Since the update I have been having a lot of shots simple disappear in mid-flight. The gun goes off but it never reaches the target. Just shot at a Ferdinand from 30 meters after letting the gun settle. Nothing! No dirt, no ricochete, no nothing. Happened twice in that game against two different tanks. It's happening about every other or every third game.

 

Anyone else seeing this?

Yep. My Chi-To, shells disappear about 1 in 6 shots. 

Thanks to Zennosha and/or Panbun, I have a shiny new signature! Thank you!

Had a game yesterday in my Maus head on against a Obj, 263,  I though it was troll armor on that thing but it was ghost shots. Had another one today in a match in my Type 59 against a conqueror, same deal. They are not angled, shots are aimed at the weak spots.

I agree on this one. I've also experienced a marked increase in ghost shells since 2.8.

The odd ghost shot I have always had.  In the past it seemed to be one/two in 10-20 games.  Now it happens every 2-3 games with multiple ghost shots per round...no more than three in one match.  This has been my experience regarding that issue

Yep. And very frustrating with a high-alpha, slow-reload gun. You may only have a chance to fire a handful of rounds in a match and one just disappears.

Also had shells disappear.  Is-6 less then 2 tank lengths away from a indien Panzer broadside to me.  His entire tank was in the aiming circle.  Fired.  No hit, bounce, or dirt flying... just the reload to let me know I did in fact shoot.

 

Disappointing.

 

Edit: I have had other shots disappear, but that is the one shot I know should have at least hit something, be it damage, bounce, or dirt.  It just went to straight non existence.

Today I went to the bathroom and forgot my phone.

Ghosts are real! I'm experiencing ghost shells, too. It's most obvious in the IS-3 Defender... 1 Shell in clip. Fire. Sound Effect....then NOTHING. Oddly, that 1 round will still be in the clip sometimes but not always. These digital misfires are frustrating.

Glad it is just not me. This has bitten me several times since update. Hurts little more because I like derpy guns.

Yep - since the start of 2.8 Ghost Shots definitely increased - every match now.

Same here, shots vanishing into thin air.  Usually in zoom mode.

I thought it was just me. It's happened in the SP 1 C a few times.

Does it seem to be primarily auto loaders doing this?

 

I've noticed it as well, but haven't paid attention to which tank I was driving. 

 

I've noticed very wonky accuracy as well.

(The very tank I need to do the best in before I can help with the NA competition - the IS-100... And I've had point blank shots dump in the dirt much more often than ever before)

I've noticed also, when slewing the turret, if I'm in the gunner's seat (sniper mode) the aiming reticle in this update is way ahead of the actual gun-target line off the barrel.  That's the only way I can account for shots landing *way* outside the aiming reticle on even point blank shots.
