I noticed in the latest patch that my IS would occasionally get a direct hit (visible), then do no damage or module damage.

 

In a day of playing, it seems to have happened 3 times. Again, these are direct hits to penable areas with little to no angle causing no response from the target.

 

Is is anyone else seeing this behavior on 3.4.2?

Oh my, this is so crazy that you made a post like this, because the exact same thing happened to me today. I was in my STB-1, and I had a great shot on an IS-8. You know how easy it is to pen the side of those things right? Well, I shot FOUR times at its side. FOUR times. Perfect shots too. He wasn't even angling, or moving, and every single shell that I shot into his side, it would bounce. No lie. It would literally soak up the shell like a sponge. I thought that I was going crazy, so I checked how many bounces he had received after the match, and what do I see? I see that he had exactly 4 non penetrating shots that bounced off of him, and those were my shots. It made me so mad. I mean, he wasn't angling, moving, or anything. Perfect side shots for my STB, and it bounced every single one. Oh well though, it's over now.

I shot a BT-7 arty like 5 times in a M3 lee and nothing happened. I know it hit, they were stopped in the open aiming radical was at its smallest and was green. The crazy thing was I saw the shell hit.

I have had 4 battles, where I would shoot a vehicle as many times as 10, even with APCR, rear, lower plate, flat sides, point blank, and in some cases all I could do was track the enemy tank, over and over and over again.

 

In a LTP, blasting away at a new BT-7 arty with Prammo and adreniline, that when it died, even another player proclaimed, "FINALLY!"

 

T1 Heavy can't finish off a German Light up close even when dead still, Prammo blazing away, wasting credits in ways that leave you sick.

 

Not fun, not anywhere close to real world tankery, a worsening waste of time, and negating any bonus for winning missions in short order.

I have had it happen so many times when firing APCR that I don't even bother selecting APCR anymore. Standard works just as well and saves credits. Haven't seen an issue with HEAT though.

I have had at least 4 occasions now in T30 or T95 where I hit the enemy, commander said "we got him" or some such, and did no damage.  No broken track, no loss in HP, no nothing.  There is no logical way in either of those tanks that a hit to tracks would be absorbed without breaking, so what did I hit?

 

I've only noticed this since new update.

Ya, same thing. The game says direct hit, or we got em and nothing. I just thought the phrases where random, anymore. The only thing I could figure is that the damage was so small it didn't register.

But then why is RNG always picking 0?

I guess RNG explains a shot into the side of a light tank from 5 feet away? Three times? So much so the guy got away with ignoring me and shot up other tanks till he got me. Not playing this much anymore.

 


Everyone has something that they can contribute, even some idiots.

It is hard to have the strength of character to do the right thing in all situations. 

Defending the weak even if you risk getting hurt is about the most noble thing one can do.

It is rare to find people today that live by those three thoughts!
