I pressed Print Screen but it didn't work this time...

 

A 704 shot an HE shell against my 13 57 and ripped off 870HP and the fire took 16HP more before the AFE kicked in. Shouldn't I be left with 4HP?

 

What the fudge?

 

What would Balc0ra say?

Probably ask for the replay.

That he'd be happy for the diversity this provided.

 

Jokes aside, I bet he'd suggest the obvious: The damage log is not 100% accurate at all times. Or the fire actually 'sploded your ammorack (if the AFE actually kicks in after one tick... does it?).

If you use a damage panel mod, it could simply be that. Or you got smacked to fast or by multiple targets within a split second besides the HE. Damage log can't always keep up, there could have been a 2nd shot in there somewhere. That or you drove on a rock and bump broke the remaining hull integrity, as it was only on 4. 

 

As was pointed out above me. Damage log is never 100% a sure thing regardless. As I had a "what the fudge" moment with it last night.

Just to eliminate the possibility; are you sure you were knocked out 'cause of 0 hp or was all your crew dead?

870 + 16 > 890 ?

 

Yep, it is moar.

If you doubt it, we The Dingers, have math in our Advanced Dingers Tanking Academy that teaches us nothing but the best:

 

a=b

a+a=a+b

2a=a+b

2a-2b=a+b-2b

2(a-b)=a+b-2b

2(a-b)=a-b

2=1

What happened at the beginning of the battle? I see it very often at the beginning of battles, light tanks driving around the other tanks, trying to pass them to get into position, but sometimes the light tanks players hit team mates and lose like 10 - 20 HP. Maybe that's what happened to you, you lost a crucial 4 HP by ramming into a team mate at the beginning of the battle.

Ammo rack explosion due to the fire?

 

That would be my guess, it doesn't count as fire damage but you still lost it.

Not sure that game animation always shows the damage properly, but after match report should. What does it say? Did the 704 did more than 870 + 16 dmg?

Don't forget that the question is, 2b or ~2b.

Hmm... We have literature classes too, you know. "2 be, or not 2 be?"

 

Of course, being gold spammers, we improved that to "press 2 to be or be not!"

The AFE takes a split second to come into effect so you will still take fire dmg once or twice, Then it kicks in.

Log didn't manage to register a fire before it 'sploded you, due to latency, most likely.

Aww, now you gave away the answer for all the math students here who eagerly have been trying to solve the problem for the past two days!
