thanks Spartacus. I’ve been trolling the forums for a while, and this is my first time posting. From what I can tell there’s allot of helpful forumers and advice given.

 

 I do have to say the matchmaking is very frustrating. I’ve been i matches where the reds have 4 Tanks with derps. Not sure about you guys, but I’m kinda tired of being one shot killed. Almost scared to even peek a boom them, especially when I’m bottom tier in a light tank. 

 

​Then don't peek a boom them.  Use terrain, speed, and your camo to get away from them.  In most cases their accuracy sucks.  Get unspotted and hit them from another angle.  Sometimes it's hard to do but you should never fight them on their terms.  Always try to fight them on your terms.

Technical it’s not bouncing since that’s not how the mechanics work on HE. 

 

Its semantics.   A bounce is defined by a ricochet (at least that’s the way I see it)

 

AP literally pens armor then explodes inside the tank.  AP shot bounces is a ricochet.  HE shot will never ricochet since it explodes on impact.  

 

HE literally explodes outside the tank and that explosion then pens the tank.  Sometimes you will have the outside explosion fail to pen the tank, which many players equate with bouncing.    Since the explosion occurs outside the tank, the point where HE hits is very important.   If the armor is too thick, the explosion is just going to bounce off the armor.  

 

For example, I had a HE shot from my KV2 do no damage to the tank, because I notice I hit the wrong spot that allowed the HE explosion to explode most above the enemy tank.  I was shooting a cupola, but this particular tank has a cupola with a soft middle, but a very strong armor on top.  I hit the very top of the copula, which was impenetrable for this particular tank.     A HE shots will never ricochet and will explode on impact. 

 

So if you hit a enemy tank wrong some of the HE explosion can either miss the tank or hit the wrong part of tank.   If you hit an enemy gun by accident rather then the tank, then expect to do zero damage.  

 

Also you can kill and damage multiple enemy targets if they are close enough together.  I haven’t killed 2 tanks with one HE shot, but at least one forum player has show that he did kill two tanks with one shot.   Clearly those tanks can not be full health.  I’ve definitely purposefully damaged two tanks with one HE shot.   

 

I’ve also killed one shot kill tanks with HE when there isn’t a clean shot at them (ie through train) and I knew the HE would explode on impact (hitting mostly the train) and that explosion would spread and travel enough through the little openings to kill the tank. 

 

 

 

I am talking about HE shells that you fire, do not see the flash of impact, then you hear, that one bounced.

I’m a 40%er and I definitely look at damage. I’m also OCD about my WR and can’t, for the life of me, bring it up. I’m not great player, but I’m not bad either. 

 

​I agree after complaining to wargamming my WR went from over 50% to 49% and it was brutal. I am a player like you. I would rather have a good team that wins even if I die, as long as I contributed to the team. The first online game I played was COD 2. I was recruited by OUTLAW CLAN. I was excepted after a recruiting period while playing. The main focus was on teamwork, it didn't matter how many times you died as long as you helped the team. It was gaming paradise, members not stealing kills, giving themselves up so team could Capture The Flag. Of course the Clan was ruined when new younger members only cared about how many kills they had. One member was caught using wall hacks. I respect all of the team players in this game and green thumb when they play well.

Ventured into tier X this morning.  Ended up with 7 tank Destroyers in the game.  5 on reds and 2 on the greens.  What an incredibly fun and dynamic game. Get a set of TD's spotted, move to flank, spot 2 more, move to flank, and spot the last one.  Meanwhile my entire team is focused on killing one E-50 for 2 minutes.  This allows the red TD's to close in and absolutely wreck us.

Do something about the amount of tank Destroyers in play for Christ's sake.

so if I hire you at my company to do work and you say, I have a 55%wr on wotb you think that's gonna carry you through this thing called life? Cause I got news for you, even in most gaming communities this game isn't the "bee's knee's" sorta speak. So for you to imply folks who have a lower than 50% wr in this game are Braindead just reinforces the fact to me that there are a lot of morally inept, ignorance is bliss individuals playing this game a the moment. What ever happened to laying for fun and learning from like minded people? Folks like this came!

 

​man . give me 6 script bots . will be far more better then with things MM throw at me .

1. bots will move . instead of sitting in bush all game . aiming at UFOS

2. bots will not join battle  and stay on start afk

3. bots will sometimes shoot . sometimes even hit with damage . AND if bot will manage to do 1k damage (small number tbh ) it will be nearly 100% win

4. bots will not YOLO . and die in first 30 sec . just coz its fun..

I just played a tier 5 battle and our team had about 27,000 battles and red team had approx. 75,000 battles. Guess what? We LOST

Tier 6 battle: my team waltzed into a trap that I happen to be nowhere near. Guess the map.
