Happens in every Battle, atleast ones.

Reason.

SLOW servers.

Overpopulated servers.

Packet loss.

 

Need a server for eastern overpopulation in this game........

What you need is to send the wife over, if you're shooting blanks.

I had that problem but went to see my GP and they sorted me out. 

 

Oh right, you mean in game? Yeah, do seem to be having the odd ghost shell, had a shell pass clean through a Hellcat a few days ago, I mean serious centre-mass style ghosting. I do actually have the replay but my language was 'colourful' to say the least as that ghost shell cost me not only a kill but the entire game.

I get this issue occasionally. Still, to say this happens in every game would be a gross exaggeration.

You forgot the most common reasons: Bad computer, bad internet and karma. Never forget karma.

Yeah. Got a good net connection, good computer, ghost shells happen maybe once per 300 battles. Although wild misses are more common - shell going well outside the aiming circle. But it's been a couple hundred battles since the last true "ghost". (shell went right through the center of an IKV, then fell to the ground a good hundred meters farther.)

 

BTW, 0 damage critical hits are something completely different than ghost shells. You hit the enemy's tracks, hear "Critical hit" and the enemy gets zero damage and continues going undeterred? That's because tracks HP doesn't transform to tank HP. You did damage to the tracks, reducing their HP pool, but not the tank's HP pool. Next shot to the tracks is much more likely to track that enemy. But currently, other than the silly message, there's no visible consequence.

Make sure to activate server reticule first. Your gun may not be aimed where you think it is.

Getting it on one shell a day or one or two times a week "that we notice" is not that uncommon. As it's a server side calculated game. And packet loss can even occur before your data gets to the WG server even.

 

If it's every single game. Then I would look on your own network setup or PC before pointing the finger at WG. I suggest doing a ping plotter trace when playing. As if it was the server doing it in every single game... I suspect we would have seen more then 1 topic about it.

I think EU servers are in Netherlands and Germany..so closer to Denmark then Eastern Europe..Run a pingplotter trace while playing the game to identify the problem?

Never had issues with ghost shells before this patch. Now I can't remember the last session I didn't have at least one. Hope they can sort it out.

I occasionally get shots vanishing, has been happening since a couple of patches. Just another "RNG" factor you have to take into account in this game.

Have it, and the ping is good enough the difference is minimal. The wild misses only happen on certain tanks (in particular, german paper TDs) so I'm convinced it's a soft stat.

His xenophobia is blatant in a lot of his posts. I guess the only way for mods to see it is to report those.
