I noticed with todays mission that the critical hit report does not tally up with module damage or even module damage in game does not seem to line up with the final results card.

 

I started with my Derp SU152 & despite a "critical hit" on a Tiger I got zero module damage on the final card. Likewise a game with my derp M4 resulted in no module damage despite several "critical hit" calls.

 

The last straw was a second game in the SU152 where despite setting one guy on fire the final score card showed track & radio damage.

 

Am I the only one or has anyone else noticed this inconsistency (especially today when it's the daily mission)?

Hits on tracks, gun and viewports also tend to count as critical hits, even if you don't deal enough damage.

If you punch through spaced armor with nothing but air behind it it also is reported as a critical hit by the commander. I wish they would just make it 2 reports...."we damaged them and "we just dinged 'em" and ofc "we were damaged" and "they dinged us" for the receiving end.

its a RNG for somehow have no explantion what cause it. it can be anything they aim for.

i bounced three time in row a S51 arty turret with my T71. then inoticed i bouncing again and again artys.

with my T49 HE shell, i  catch one shot BC25t after i reload for 18 sec, and guess what, critical hit.

lets say, this is what we have, lets flow with it.

If the person repairs the module/heals the dead crew member then it does not count towards the mission. Also if you damage the tracks with the first shot and then destroy the tracks it counts as 2.

The voice says "critical hit!" for non penetrated HE who deal damage, shoot who pass through spaced armor but don't actually hit the main armour and for actual crtical damage to external module, but only if the bullet doesn't hit the main armour, otherwise you well hear "penetration" or "we didn't penetrate".

Because that would advertise both Dingers' Clans for free :trollface:

I noticed that my first shots always end as "critical hit" with no damage.

 

Maybe it's just me or it's just "RNG" as usual...

 

It's frustrating and annoying...
