So today I think I got one-shotted by arty. Think because it was quite strange.... My entire crew was dead after one hit but I still had about 400 hp left. After about 10-20 seconds the game finally deceided I was dead.

Heard about it but never happened to me. The med kit won't bring em back to life either, if I remember right, or am I wrong....

It's rare, but it happens, especially with small tank crews.

Crew dead or injured - tank useless. You're dead.

Only ever had it happen once to me. In one of the tier 1 Renault FT clones and just got both crew knocked out on Province (remember that?).

Only ever seen it happen once, I shotgunned a Bulldog in my M12 a while back...killed all of his crew and left him with just over 100HP.

 

Never happened to myself, but it is definitely supposed to be there :P

 

Even less common now that med kits can be reused, previously a few well placed splashes from arty could disable the crew easily.

It happens alot in low tier battles where tanks have 2-3 crew members. I've only seen it once in a high tier battle, Was the result of a T49 VS T49 duel, One T49 killed all the others crew.

 

It has the same affect as drowning does, Your tank is dead but the health still shows and you can still shoot it

Ono time my S1 got hit by T92. Not only it killed my crew, but it also remove all of its hitpoints. :arta:

Edit: It was a blind fire too start of the game. 45s. of excitiment. :sceptic:

Same here. At least I can recall only one such occasion. Mine was on Malinovka, and had both crew members knocked by some spray and pray machine gunner. Tank still had most of its HP remaining...

It´s actually a feature. When all crew members are dead, your tank is knocked out, independant of the remaining HP. It´s a bit like what happens when you sink in water - your tank doesnt explode then as well, but your crew dorwns.

Arty hits to the roof can do that too. Lost a whole T-34-85 crew (IIRC) but i also once hit a T-43 and killed it's crew in one shot (with the Crusader SP). This was before the arty rework. The game used to be quicker in deciding you were dead though. In my case it was instantanious. (also the multiple times it happened on low tiers vs spray guns).

I've made it happen to someone once, but only ever once, in a T2 or T1 game.

 

I used a HE shell and the tank only got hit for a 1 damage critical hit, but the person's crew got wiped-out, giving me a kill. Was quite funny seeing a full HP empty shell tank sitting in the middle of Ruinberg.

TKed an ELC by accident once, he crossed my shot and one shell knocked out both crewmen. Just a dead tank sitting the with most of its hp left.

I remember HE was changed about four years ago so that one explosion can't kill more than 75 % of crew members, so is this changed back or a bug?

One HE shell yeah, however two HE shells can very well kill the entirety of the crew (if its 4, which is the most common amount in the game)
