Damage from fire, ammo racking, drowning and maybe some more stuff is not counted as potential damage I believe. Only the actual shot counts.

If all your crew dies its counted the same.......Game over please insert coin  :sad:  The hull just sits there in the game still and can still be shot and destroyed. I have seen tanks suicide drown and another red tank come along and finish the tank off for the damage value.  I dont know if the damage still counts to the enemy though or if its discounted.
P.S I love the garage skin.

you got shot by something with 700 average damage and it rolled 840?

This.

The potential damage only sums up the avg damage the guns that bit you would do.

If you got rammed it is not counted on the potential damage received.  Did you get rammed by enemy or friendly at all?  I've been rammed to death enough times to know this to be the case - gotta love close combat in an SPG  :blinky:

Really?  :amazed:
If this is the case, that whole stat would be pretty useless...

None of the above, no fire, no dead crew, no ammo rack, just a shot from another tank.

Yep, happens when someone rolls a nice dmg on that round. The potential is displayed without the +-25% variation.
