I was playing my HWK12 today and I got shot by strv, dont know how but I managed to bounce that shot for 0 damage blocked. Same thing happend right after with shot from elc even. Have somebody seen such a thing before? I found it unlikely to even bounce shots with 15mm armour :)

Yes. People even had odd cases of bouncing Jaegeroos in ELC AMXs or Chaffees or some crap like that in the past.

0 damage blocked listed and you know you bounced one means that a module ate the damage. Not your armor.

The shell probably hit an external module but didn't actually hit the primary armour, hence no damage blocked.

He hit you on the gun barrel.

 

Happens a lot to me when playing LTs

I'm not 100% sure on this but I'm thinking the difference between a non-penetrating hit and a ricochet, the former being counted, the latter not. However perhaps someone who pays more attention to these things can clarify whether it's a possibility. The reason I think it is because ricochet hits aren't blocked by armour, they don't penetrate because of the firing angle, so overmatch mechanics aside it's not your armour that blocks it.

They are counted. Most of the blocked damage from top tier I got in my HTs when bottom tier came from angling untill autobounce is reached. :)

Nope, it's as above, it has to make contact with an area of hull/turret armour which counts for damage.  If it bounces off an external module then it doesn't count.

Thanks for clarification :)
