Your engine could have been swamped, the height of the tracks means nothing if all your vital mechanical parts are below that line.

i know how it works

 

i've played before a few times

 

that's why i can't explain my tank drowning in a puddle

 

the water barely comes halfway up my tracks

 

and it has never happened before in that location

 

because the water isn't usually deep enough

 

peace (again)

Well did u see a counter

 

yes, i saw the timer

 

but as i was already over halfway across, i tried to complete the move

because he water isn't usually deep enough to drown there 

and i was close to the edge of the water anyway

but the tank behaved as if i was fully submerged

and as reversing is even slower than keeping going forwards, i kept going

 

it isn't a slow tank and the water shouldn't have been deep enough to affect the tank as much as it did

i've been slowed down there before but nothing this bad

look at where i was on the map, look at the actual depth of the water and tell me how i drowned

 

please don't tell me that it's my own fault for ignoring the timer

to me it looks like an issue with the mechanics

maybe it's just the Alecto that has this problem

i don't know, having NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS BEFORE

 

i'm a fairly experienced player, with a combined total of over 60k battles

but i haven't experienced drowning with only my tracks wet before

 

so can you explain it or are you just going to try and point the finger at your perception of my incompetence?

Never seen this before. Alecto specific maybe?

Unless they have changed it then and not told anyone or something to do with the lag issues that has been happening. Weird

The drowning line is checked from turret base or in case of other tanks, the moving part of your gun. With some tanks the moving part extends very low.

It's not a mechanics issue. The timer came up, you ignored it, you drowned. It's your own fault.
