Hey everyone,

So I just started playing WoT again for the first time since 9.17 and I've run into something weird. Quite often tank outlines won't show up when aiming at them through shrubs even if they're clearly in line of sight. Did I miss some new gameplay feature or is there something buggy going on? Just curious...

Lot's of love,

SuperJimbo:honoring:

Many terrain hitboxes are broken on various maps, be it rocks, hills or even houses. Bushes shouldn't do that.

Terrain hitboxes as Jiga said are borked atm, it's a well known issue.

 

Are you by chance playing on low grpahics settings? This is known to sometimes cause unrendered terrain to block a shot due to missing terrain geometry.

 

Post a screenshot or a replay if possible, preferrably both (so we can see from your pov)

I've frequently noticed that attempting to fire through cracks, holes and windows was an iffy situation at best. The hitboxes of the solid objects blocking my line of fire seemed a little larger than what was drawn.

 

There's also the fact that your camera in sniper mode doesn't always perfectly line up with your gunbarrel so you may have an unobstructed view, but still an obstructed shot. In my experience if you don't get an outline you're not going to hit the tank, it's not the outlines that are bugged.

Thanks for the replies guys, good to hear I'm not the only one having the problem. I haven't been recording my games since reinstalling. I'll record my games and see if I can produce any footage of it happening. I play on "maximum" which is the second highest for some reason:teethhappy:.

I guess it makes sense that it's not the bushes since any "blind shots" I attempted on tanks with no outline didn't hit. Oddly enough though those tanks would usually be able to hit me which initially made me think it was bushes and bad luck no hitting or the gun zeroing on terrain in the distance causing a miss...

 

Has WG made any statements/efforts to minimise this problem?

I have these odd situations sometimes that i get hit by a tank i try to aim at but can't get an outline but still hit them when i realize they have line of fire to me.

Forget it guys,
I remember now why I moved to other stuff. I love my hairline too much to be consumed by this game again :)

Was trying to not get team shot a second time after supposedly "blocking". Getting shot would have been the easy way:teethhappy:: https://plays.tv/video/5b3801e45134043f31/remember-why-stopped-playing-game-diseases-funtimes-toxic

 

Might try again soon, or even tomorrow. Who knows. This game seems to always pull you back. Funny to see it's all the same guys still lurking on the forum though:teethhappy:
