Well, people should also be doing damage to you while they do it, so be happy they can't aim that well, as you should be dead at 5/6 times.

I assume you meant not doing damage....and you would be wrong.  95% of the time it comes with damage.

 

I spent 3 missions recently only shooting people in the turret.  I hit 12 different enemies turrets and nowhere else.  5 of them also immobilized their tank.

 

I am starting to think WG is doing it to pump accessory sales.

What your client displays is not always what the server does, thanks to the nature of networking. Also tracking is a basic tactic, get used to it.

I aim at their turret and see the hit and you are saying most of the time I hit their track?  Seriously?  That is what you are saying?

No hacks...I just suspect WG has upped the chance of tracking per non track shot.  I don't remember it being this way a few months ago.

Yes that can happen, particularly if you play with potato powered internet.

 

Also, firing HE can do that too.

 

Oh and if the shot with an AP shell hits the turret, tracking is impossible. Just saying.

I don't dismiss what you say out of hand...I just am skeptical.  I will try a few more 'only shoot em in the turret' battles.

No...no arty.  I dismiss all arty as I EXPECT to get tracked from 5m long HE shells :D

You see the hit as your client displays it. But the calculations are server side, so what you see can be subject to lag and packet loss.

Use a toolbox and repair kit and train repair skill on crew.

You will have tracks back on faster than you can say Peter Piper picked a pickled pepper.....

Just to clarify: The part in between the tracks, just a little bit above the ground is the "Hull" and not the "Turret".

1. In your garage set your repair kit so that it is on button 5. Button 5 is also the command to repair track. Having the repair kit on button 5 makes it much faster to double tap button 5 and repair your track almost instantly.

 

2. Look at the angle you are using approaching an enemy tank. If you are constantly getting tracked, maybe you should reconsider how you angle you own tank as you approach to shoot.

Thanks man!  #1 sounds like gold.  Will try.

What RamRaid90 is saying, which really should have been obvious, is that just because you aim for the turret you may not necessarily hit the turret... Now do everyone a favor and stop posting.
