I noticed recently that my fast tanks (amx 12t) are quite likely to climb up rocks and flip to side.

Plz look at the end of my replay. I had a very good game and got my tank stuck in the end. Meanwhile the terrain was not that difficult, if at all.

I did got my Ace with that video, otherwise I would have hated the game ;)

 

And just now I got a worse experience. My poor TD was hiding behind a wall, and suddenly it starts to climb over. The camera just went mad, made it impossible to understand what happened. And then my TD was lying down, watching the team losing.

 

 

I have no clue why the devs added this "feature" to the game.

Is it fun ?

 - Not at all

Is it real ?

 - Well I would be surprised to know if there has any tank who flipped over against a wall like that. Anyway if the devs want to make the game realistic by adding unpleasant accidents, I think mecanics failure is a way more historical one, than tanks climbing rocks and walls.

 

I think seriously this should be correctedin a next update.

Recently? Have you been away or have you been on eBay?

 

As per realism, check this:

Have you read my post or have you stopped at the 3rd word ?

As I said, this being a unpleasant feature, should they add mechanical failures as well based on historical stats ?

After all, this is a game

I read it alright, that's why I asked that question! This sort of physics have been in the game for almost 2 years, and it was well worse in the beginning.

Didn't watch the videos, but the behaviour of the physics when close to walls and rocks is a well known problem.
Won't get fixed anytime soon, so don't drink and drive.

I did not play much WOT since then. Even less with LT, until 2 months ago, where I started to enjoy my amx 12t.

But why should I explain that ? It is irrelevant to my question at all.

As per realism, check this:

 

That was the Kuwait team at Tank Biathlon 2015 i think(or maybe 2016, not sure) , not 'russian soldiers' at all

 

 

I think this was the worst fail of Russia until now at Tank Biathlon competitions (they won all editions)

 

 

And other funny moment from tank biathlon: China crew pushes a little other tank (i think it was Belarus) 

Look at how that T72 turn a little his turret in direction of the chinese tank (at 0:25). It was like: ''Come on bruh, the track is not large enough for you?''

 

 

Back on topic:

Yeah, i hate when i try to hide better behind a building to not get splashed by arty of shot by some guy - and my tank starts to climb that perfectly vertical wall like nothing.

But the same tank struggles to climb a 30% slope...

Since the last update the camera doesn't mix well with objects like walls or rocks ...making the crosshair lift towards the sky repeatedly...it can be quite confusing...and annoying.

The question...well, tanks used to be stuck when hitting a small rock on the ground. Was that realistic or fun?

Tanks were supposed to break walls, but havok physics is inside a drawer, until then, I much rather have what we got atm, regardless of you only recently noticing it.

I noticed that too. It seems to happen less.

 

I do notice an other annoying thing (which is off topic), It happens to me many times that at close combat (for example, both me and enemy are moving), right click does not lock on enemy. So i miss shots because of that.

I don't know if it is the client or the mod pack yet.

2015. It was in "The Daily Telegraph" as well as on the BBC.

It was a result of the fix they put in to stop tanks sticking to walls and rocks which was much more annoying.  And it is unlikely to be removed soon as they have said it's a straight choice between this and not being able to move if you get against a wall.

Climbing walls are annoying and unrealistic.

Huh? Didn't that get fixed even before the introduction of the new physics?

I thought that tanks climbing up walls was a result of the new physics that WG never bothered to fix before the introduction...

It used to work better.

 

At 5:18 you will see the best sniping position in the game :medal:

According to a poll I made on the subject, our tankers prefer the opposite.
