So here I am in a 1v1. If I win I get some prize, shouldn't be too hard. I'm in an IS3 against an OP-252U Defender. I fire APCR at his lower plate, and it bounces because Defender is definitely a balanced tank. I then shoot the CLEAR cupolas shown in the pictures, but the shots go STRAIGHT THROUGH them inflicting 0 damage. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe most players would believe that if you model the cupola, you should be able to hit it....

You obviously missed, or lagged (and missed)

 

The defenders cupolas ARE modelled and ARE hitboxes. I've penetrated them plenty of times.

 

Replay will solve this.

I don't know what you are getting at, your first image is the hitbox.  If you didn't hit it then you didn't hit it.

 

You may have clipped the observation device on the cupola to the right as you are looking at it, which would have given you a penetration mark and gone right through as it's only spaced armour.

Ah, yeah, I saw that from the replay file you've obviously included to enforce your argument.

 

EDIT: your poll seems to insinuate a serious balance issue with the 252U that goes beyond "modelling the cupola's". Whether that's true will be of later concern; my guess is that this is not about missing a few shells.

I see what you did there.

And IS-3 player complaining about defender? :sceptic:
