Is anyone else suffering from being shot in the gun an it counting as a penning shot? 

this just made me go from 91.8% MOE to 90.9% on my action X because a 4005 hit my gun and it counted as a penetration.

How does you getting your gun damaged influence your MOE? I thought that was only related on how much damage you cause directly or indirectly.

There's a little bit of gun hitbox inside the turret too, you know. Also CAX doesn't really have much in the way of a mantlet which protects the gun on most tanks.

The gun makes you take a damaging shot now i lost 1220 health in the first min of the game that affects MOE

It's not the tank's fault that you got hit and penned by a 4005 in the first minute of the battle. You gotta play better and not get hit, that's how you get your MOE up. Doing dumb mistakes and getting shot to pieces reduces MOE. You're not a bad player, you should know this stuff and you should know better than to blame anything or anyone else but yourself.

Being shot at reduces MOE? How?

When you say you got "hit in the gun"... do you mean the actual barrel only, or did you get penetrated through (or around) the barrel into the turret?

I think the gun barrel got changed at some point to act as standard spaced armour, instead of absorbing all shots like before.

 

Personally, it's a good change, makes things more consistent.

Only the gun

So the shot damage your gun to the point that the displayed MoE got wiped out or...?

 

Because if that wasn't it, and it wasn't, how the hell does being shot affect MoE at all?

It was a FV4005, so it probably HESHmemed you. Its likely the shot hit the part of the barrel hitbox just in front of the turret and detonated, and due to HESH rounds following HE mechanics there is an "explosion radius" where even if the shell didn't hit your tank its explosion did and would cause damage. That would likely damage the gun and damage your tank at the same time.
