When a tank is first spotted, it is sometimes drawn with the turret pointing in the wrong direction.  Then after a few moments, the turret suddenly "snaps" to the correct point.  It's annoying when you think someone is not aiming at you and then suddenly discover that they are...

 

An example is shown in this video snippet:

It's an age-old bug, and I'm assuming it has to do with client-server lag. Whether a fix is possible, I don't know.

I have been losing interest in this game for a while now. I believe that it is time for me to put the game down and finally move on with life. A big thanks to the forums for helping me on the road to 60%, and sometimes giving me a good laugh. o7."

I guess I just never noticed it before.  I can't imagine it's lag related though; my ping (as shown in the video) is very low and the game has been running very smoothly during this last version.

It might actually be the other KV-1's lag. In some previous games I have played, other player's bad connection could impact your connection.

I'll get around to changing my name eventually...

The client just take a while to synchronize with the server. We can't control it.

I have been noticing it more often recently. There was one patch that it was happening a lot, I don't remember what patch but some searchining might bring it up.
