So I was playing in my pz 1 c and all of a sudden I die for no apparent reason after only taking a few shots (replay attached) it also said afterwards that my crew had been knocked out? Last I checked that's how you die in War Thunder, not World of Tanks. Anyone know what happened?

Where did you attached the replay?

If the crew is dead, you're out.

In WoT if your whole crew gets injured you are automatically "dead/destroyed" as you have no crew members left to occupy the other's position and try to do their job. In the Pz 1C, as it only has 2 crew members is pretty easy to get knocked out from the battles by just injuring both the commander and the driver.

Presumably your crew got knocked out. Arty can kill your entire crew without actually destroying the tank if you get extraordinarily unlucky.

Going by the status that you rcrew got knocked out I guess it's because your crew got knocked out. Had that happen to me once in the pz1c when I got ranbyed by another little autoloader. 2 crews can hurt.

Your replay died to mysterious circumstances too? You probably just caught another shot simultaneously, that can happen and you wonder how a tank with 180 alpha rolled 500 dmg but he didn't was just a tank you didn't see hit the exact same time.

Once all your crew is knocked out, you're dead. That's just very unlikely to happen with most tanks since they've got 4 or more crew members. Play enough with 2 crew tanks and it'll happen from time-to-time. Especially at low tiers. Note that when this happens your tank will appear dead, but in the bottom left corner you can still see how much hit points your vehicle has left.

 

Imagine turning your Pz1C turret 90 degrees - anyone spraying you with a machine gun from the front could knock out the driver and then the commander.

 

Other options include getting ammo-racked... but that's unlikely since it's done with plenty of special effects. Or perhaps you got hit multiple times very rapidly and didn't notice. There are a couple of topics about people not getting decent feedback (no red flashes, no sounds) after being hit.

Doesn't the game literally tell you the reason you 'died'? Can't remember a crew death happening, but it does say 'destroyed by fire' or 'by ammo rack detonation' ...or whatever, I don't pay that much attention. Should say 'crew knocked out' as well.

 

If you're coming from War Thunder, this is less likely to happen in WoT. WT requires two-three crew members to have your tank function. WoT requires one. Even the second radioman can make the tank work. Also, WoT doesn't model spalling and APHE. If crew dies, they have to be literally in the way of the shell, and has a 33% chance to 'die'. HE shells are modelled, I believe, somewhat similar as in WT, but the chance of crew death with HE is only 10%.

Not totally sure what happens if the shell doesn't penetrate, but crew can sure die from even sub-100HP HE hits (or splashes).
