Ever since the bug with the penetration indicator I get a feeling that is not just an indicator bug. 

Now I'm playing tanks with heat premium and especially with heat I bounce a lot of stuff that should pen easily. I know heat doesn't work well with angles but things are getting hilarious. If a bit of slope is involved, there is a good chance to bounce. Not sure if it's only the heat, but with that I noticed the most.

I dunno... HEAT firing WZ-111 5As have been penning my Borsig with gay abandon as of just yesterday.

Or you just low rolled all day. As most gold HEAT rounds on high tiers can still go lower then even the average of a normal round.

WG had to make some changes to penetration, because I made 5 penetration shots in a row with arty. (Oh yeah I will burn in hell.)

Or this is bug that I described here:

http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/648838-9201-current-issues/page__st__100__pid__14969696#entry14969696

If server can mismatch APCR with HE mechanic it's possible that you pay for HEATs but they use standard ammo penetration and mechanic :trollface:. But if you find how to trigger this bug you can abuse it to shoot HEAT and pay for it same as for standard ammo :justwait:

I never got HEAT to work very well with the T-34-3 before it's buff, but it's now almost like magic ammo, pen all day long even where it shouldn't pen.

Funny, it's a single case with a single player. Obviously that indicates it applies to all... Besides, the topic isn't worth responding to seriously anyway. Especially considering who created it...

I don't save replays and honestly I'm not interested in feeding the trolls on the forum, like the dude from 322 above. 

 

You either noticed the bug yourself (pen indicator) and have an opinion, or you don't (in which case doesn't really mater because you are playing at bot level anyway).
