Once in a while you had shots not getting confirmed by the game but in the latest patch i feel theres a lot of shots not even recognized as a bounce or even as a critical hit with 0 dmg.

Are there more objects on the maps that is impenetrable but still breaks? Cause i can clearly see the shots hit the tanks but nothing is happening, something to do with the new tracer round effects maybe?

I m not talking about sniping here either.

Also, buff the damn AMX65t and nerf the OBJ268 4 already.. my god how long is going to take to adjust a few numbers?

There are some sound bugs still, some people missing certain sounds for instance.

 

A replay would help vastly.

I'm getting same problem, last match I shot at a T49 from about 60ft (point blank really) didn't even register any damage on it even though I was in an IS3 using gold with the biggest gun it has and that's just the tip of the iceberg as it's happening quite a lot.  Another thing I've noticed is that a lot more of my shots are just dropping like a stone very annoying when you've waited to get the perfect shot and that happens.  

 

Replay saved how do i attach it?

Shots vanishing happens mostly on Himmelsdorf, Ensk, and Ruinberg.

 

Only happens at point blank range, fully aimed, target fills reticule, gun sounds, reload starts, but shot doesn't register a hit or affect scenery. 

 

Hasn't happened that often, but regularly enough for it to be a bit more than packet loss. I suspect the client-server are having some significant disagreements about what's going on, or there's some huge hitbox bugs as it seems to be when brawling with a lot of buildings nearby.

You will need to supply the link, can't find any replays under your name so you must have uploaded it unlisted.

Probably either invisible scenery blocking the shot (as a result of low terrain details or a bug) or network issues.

I'm getting a lot of taking dmg without any notification. Usually the screen goes red and you get a dmg indicator of direction and dmg received and a hit 'sound byte'. I don't, I just get dmg taken off, like someone is simply deleting it from my HP bar. Very odd. Guess it's a graphical glitch or similar.

Ok not happy with this starting to affect more games and at point blanc there is nothing between me and target. I am losing games and tanks because of these events, starting to get real miffed.

Sorry, here's the link to my replay

 

http://wotreplays.eu...ff-stile62-is-3

 

Also another replay just to show you what I'm on about when I say shots are just dropping not only that their off target by miles too and I'm hitting my own side because of it.

I hope WOT is going to take this crap into consideration before they ban players for TKing

I have played several games where I score Zero.   Granted I am not  a great player.   But dozens of shots are going straight through or just missing the target.

I have checked frame by frame on some replays, I did notice that as I fired, on some occasions, the reticle would drop for a minute fraction of a second, then come back up to where I was aiming.

Te shell would hit the dropped position.   But that was only on a few shots.  

I post four pictures to show a shell clearly going straight through a tank.  I am standing still, he is standing still.  My shell is capable of 350HP   You can see on the third photo the white of point of light,  That is my shell, bang on in the centre of the target.     Distance is no objective,  this happens at any distance right up to pint blank.spottedzoomed inyou can see the shell as a white point of light, right on targetAfter shot and no damage.

A: Shell is server side. Your client's shell is only a representation of what the server tells him based on the info he gets. It even is delayed vs the server. Thus why tanks blow up before they get hit. 

 

B: Your client might get a different story due to lag or packet loss vs what the server want's to say. Thus it might not do anything when it hits. For all we know the server sent it wide, but your client never got that info. Thus it sends it dead center. If the server says you hit it, you sill hit. If not, then even on a hit you won't see any damage as the server says you missed anyway. It's the server that decides if you do damage or not. Not your clientside shell if you will. It's annoying but rare. It's basically the price we pay to have serverside calculation. 

 

As if you say you can do 350. I guess you run the 122mm? It's widely known not to hit the broad side of a barn standing inside it. So I would not be amazed if the server said you missed. 

 

C: I can hardly see anything on the 3rd image clearly. For all I know you hit the gun and did a critical hit, or it dropped right between the tracks and did nothing. As it's low as is before it hit.
