I am kind of used to constantly getting turned over as I play a lot of lights but the french light tanks seem to be cursed with this turning over.

 

Whenever you are close to a wall or a steep hill and happen to turn the tank, part of it seems to "climb" up the wall and thus turning on the side.


 

In this particular game I was turned on the roof despite trying to drive straight. Well...see for yourself....


 

 

This replay really shows that the system is not good at all. I turned too easily and even other tanks do not seem to be able to help me...completely helpless....

Then don't.

 

It's a known feature, it was the fix for tanks getting stuck to walls and not being able to move away so you will just have to adapt.

Oh...I don't have any problems moving away...the problem is the tank gets turned way to easily and for nothing.

 

Anyway...that replay was not about that particular problem...but just turning in general (and turning on the roof)...and ESPECIALLY that it doesnt look like anyone can help you after you are turned on the roof...even if they try....

FR Lights have a lot of this problem from Tier V all the way to the rest of the line.

It's a problem if you can't drive...

Being more specific is key here.

It is not the FR LT in genegral, but the EVEN in particular.

 

Once tipped over it is impossble to help.

Why?

Becasue WG has modelled a turret that will "stick" in the ground, hence impossible to turn on its track again (as we can see in your replay).

But hey, this is the kind of quality you get from WG products, worth sold for 25 Euro.

 

Tipped over on EVEN 6/200.

Tipped over on FR LT, 2/1000.

 

It also happens when you go down a slope and suddenly stop, meaning releasing W-key. In such case you will perform a frontal flip.

This has only to do with skills at keyboard, but on WG side.

:angry:

Happens for the AMX-12/13 turrets.

 

The 13 75 was one time negatively known for this. Probably still is.

Battles are over so quickly nobody will help and if they do they end up doing team damage and get banned. Hence why nobody helps :/

I don't know what the fuss is all about.

 

When i turn over i just do the same with my monitor and all is fine.

Have you even tried that? People complain without trying simplest solutions first :facepalm:
