Seems like since last update, I've been experiencing lots of shots that cause no damage. Not bounces, not no pen ,but ghost shots. In a recent battle I shot 2 rounds at point blank range into the side of an is5 with a t44 but did nothing. Anyone else having these issues?

It happens mostly when I shoot at the tracks (or sides) of Soviet tanks.

RNGesus couldn't decide in time wether it would be a high roll or a low roll, so to cover up his mistake, he just evaporates the shell and pretends in never happened. YOU couldn't decide the damage of 1,000 shots all in a few seconds, could you?

T49 HEAT to the tracks of litterally any tier 7s side is the reason I have trust issues

Yes, I've shot at tanks at point blank range and seen shells magically go 20ft over the target or into the ground repeatedly since the last 2 or 3 updates.

Like has been said so many times, it's with full reticle shrinkage that this happens. At point blank range with a bore sight, this shouldn't happen at all, period. (sniper mode is bore sighted FWIW)

I've shot as many as 5 shells into the tender sides of enemy tanks with 50mm or less armor, with guns with 150mm plus penetration and nothing. It's gotten me killed more than once.

We're not talking about angle shots, these are near 90deg shots into grey areas in sniper mode.

I also try a new spot on the tank each time to hit modules like the engine, ammo, little people, but nothing will happen when things start getting bad like that.

 

Like someone else around here was saying recently, they were at contact range and it still came out a miss.

Definitely a serious issue that needs to fixed by war gaming , my shots were right in the middle above the tracks and right into the is5 main body, no reason for those shots to not cause any damage.

I had several matches tonight putting shots in at close range aimed and zip nadda. At the end of the match details say 5 pens with damage but zero damage. I put at lest five shots into tanks tonight and didn't do a thing several times over....it's gotten really bad.

This makes me wonder if you've been experiencing the same thing as me.

I've recently been having a new issue, in which I hit tanks with big guns like I have mounted on my T-150 and see the hit points come rolling off of them, but in the post game report, it's saying I did less than 400 damage to all tanks I hit combined.

What I've witnessed are hits that can take off half the red tank's health, but I'm not getting credit post game.

If I'm around other players, I realize this could be multiple tanks hitting the same target nearly simultaneously, but sometimes it's near the end of a match and not enough players are left to explain it.

In one match I killed a Anko and Hetzer each with no assistance but at the end it said I only did something like 500 damage.

How can a person kill an Anko and Hetzer at or near full health, and get such a low damage after the game?

Ive had this problem too. I was in my AT7 shooting at the side of a hellsing from about a tank length away. First shot, miss. Second shot, bounce. Third shot, miss. Then he shot me and i died.

He had around 200-300 hp left.

Yes. I hit grey areas several times with my shiny new Cromwell B yesterday and nothing, way too much of the time. Or the shots did very little damage, like 90 damage repeatedly.

 

Despite good ping under 100 most of the time, I was also having issues with my tank locking up for several seconds at a time. I'm not sure if that's the update or interweb woes.

 

I don't know if it's the update itself, or just a mob of people on the servers.
