So there is this bug I have seen a couple of times now.

 

Red tank is aimed away and I creep a corner...round comes at me as if he is aimed at me but his barrel is pointing 90 degrees away from me.

 

Happened three times so far twice on some low tier Marder tank and once on a KV1 

 

nasty bug, because that is part of the strategy to wait until they look away from you.

It's a loading issue. If a tank goes unspotted for a second or so and then quickly gets spotted again, their turret will be facing in the direction it was in last before spotted.

My Top Tanks: Lowe (#880), Type 61 (#834), Helsing H0 (#797), Pz. S35 739 (#778), ARL 44 (#661), T7 Car (#654), STB-1 (#502), MT-25 (#442), Excelsior (ironically(#422), M22 Locust (#322), T23E3 (#223), Pz. 38 (t) nA (#211), Alecto (#197), Pz 35 (t) (#168),

T-25 (#166), Stridsvagn 74A2 (#151), Angry Connor (#63!), T-15 (#50!), Pz. 38 (t) (#31!)

In My Garage: T-25, Tetrarch, Pz 38 (t), Pz 35 (t),  SU-122-44, Helsing H0, Kuro Mori Mine, Pz IV Anko SP, E 50 M, T7 Car, T2 Light, Locust, T-15, Stridsvagn 74A2, T23E3, Angry Connor, Lowe, Leopard 1, 112, STB-1, AMX M4 45, Type 61, WT Auf Pz IV, T28 Proto

I could see that.

 

I have a pretty fast lil computer here..with a hardline fast connection...problems are rarely on my side.

 

Just wanted to bring it up because I have never seen that before.

 

These tanks were spotted the whole time and one landed 2 rounds with turret turned away as I was still with binocs out.

I see it all the time.  Bushka had a video on this bug when it started.  I've seen it on and off since then.  Bug gets me whacked all the time....  I just always assume they are pointed at me even when they aren't.  This bug will be fixed as soon as the other major bugs are corrected...

Yes its usually happens when enemy tank were spotted right away then its turret direction isnt correctly updated. It will take another second to correct itself. This make peek shot very inconvenient .

How about when the game doesn't render a tanks depression very well so it looks like a tank will shoot above you and they end up connecting anyway.  Exploiting some tanks lack of depression is difficult when you cannot accurately assess whether or not a tank is able to depress enough to shoot you.

I've seen it also. I thought it was a lag issue. But, it seems to me it only started recently.

Yeah, I've fallen victim to that way to often in my light weight peek-a-boo tanks.  Think I'm being all ninja and "BAM!".  Face full of pain.

It's been around for awhile...  but the new one is him running away facing forward turret too, and shooting at you while you're in pursuit!!!  Omg WG Stop putting out new maps and tanks and just fix this list of shiz that's annoying first LIKE THE CHAT!!!  it always defaults to clan chat every single time I go to the garage and then back to chat.  In addition, click chat and ap crashes.  Smh
