So...from what I know...the overmatch occurs when the caliber of the gun is more than 3 times the nominal thickness of the plate of armour that has been shot at...and with my basic mathematical skills i get that the 128mm gun of a skorpion should be able to overmatch another skorpion everytime anywhere it hits...right? Because skorpion has at most...30mm of armour..right? And 30x3=90, right? And 128>90, right? So why do i bounce on skorpions when hitting them with my skorpion? Have i missed something from my calculations? Have i calculated something wrong? Please tell me...because i thought i knew basic mathematic and how the overmatch occurs...but apparently the game says otherwise...

You dont ricoshet or bounce the skorpion.  You hit a module  or the shot never intersected the tank hitbox.

You hit the gun, your shell was absorbed by the gun, you missed blah blah.

 

Replay is the best option.

 

Edit: Saw your second post. You game client IS NOT 100% correct. The server can alter things post-event if the information it recieves doesn't coincide with whats stored.

you want replay? here http://wotreplays.eu...tall_skorpion_g at 06:35 on the clock and watch from there. and the commander says in german...that didn't go through...and you can actually see the skorpion tilting to its side when it gets hit by my shell since he was with his side facing me. if that isn't [edited]i don't know what it is...

Watch your own replay before you post it.

 

You hit the gun.

 

 

Flight trajectory tells me that, not hard to see at all.

 

Edit: The point you hit.

There is no other way, there just can’t be!
