So I was shot by a 183 with HE for 1900 or so damage.

 

I was on Full HP so had 400 or so left over.

 

The game registered me as dead, with a message that all my crew had been killed, but the tank still had HP left.

 

Is this a thing?  1st time in 50k games it's happened to me, never even heard about it.

 

Replay attached, game did disconnect at the start.

Yes, your crew can die before the tank is destroyed. Super rare, but happens.

Same thing when you drown. Tank has HP, but crew is dead, so it's game over for you.

Same effect as drowning. Your crew dies and you you are done tank HP do not matter.

Used to happen every now and then with the old HE and arty mechanics. Never seen that for years now...

Ahh I see.

 

And I assume the large med kit is no use as there is no-one to use it? :P

I would expect more actually, since less damage + more splash means more crew rape. Arty killing 2-3 crew with a single low damage splash is not uncommon nowadays.

If the crew is all dead. How do you expect to control anything on your tank? Considering how affected it is when one dies. It's "common" on low tier lights with 2 crews etc. As my ELC has seen it a few times. With 4 or more? Not really.

It's been a thing since I started.

 

They changed it around the time the French arty arrived so it can only happen on a penetrating HE hit though.

I've seen it happen in lower tiers a couple times, most frequent causes of such cases were Pz. I C's.

Hasn't happened to me in 6 thousand games. I imagine it'll happen later in my BC12T now :sceptic:

Happens more often in the lower tiers with machine guns and 2 man crews...

Not weird and kinda makes sense (nobody left to actually use the med kit)

You basically answered your own question, but yes it does happen.

 

they should make it with big tanks that you knock out the crew more often especiwlly with he or hesh. Which makes sense since the latter was designed for that purpose.

Dont forget the introduction of reusable medkits. You can resurrect one every  90s.

Bc12t on ensk, I get blapped by AP from IS. All crew KO... Very rare, I think few years back some KV spammed my matilda with 122 HE and killed the crew. Not much to do but laugh and exit there.

I knew it could happen but had never had it happen until i was gifted an elc even 90 and someone dared to pen me with HE. First shot i'd taken after about 1min of the game but had to laugh about it.

Is not this a bug? Never seen anything such as this. Seems really weird, although my account is kinda new considering it is 1,5 years old. Sorcery :)
