i think the games just thrown away a kill for me, and then just totally forgot about splash damage.

yes i was using auto aim, but there is no reason for it to have missed this badly, my gun was inside of them.

You missed......you shot just behind the read of his gun. The damage to him that was caused as you fired, was contact damage as you rammed each other. 

A replay would help more though.

probably should turn the replays back on, but the shot he does to me for 450 should of easily killed him as well which is where im mostly lost at.

It's hard to tell but from the angle of his gun it looks like he clipped your right front mini-turret, so didn't get the full blast back.

Yes....turn replays back on, can't understand why you record while playing using a video capture.

It's not easy to see with the camera above it. As I can't see if your barrel is over his side hitbox or not. As I suspect it was indicated by the impact splash on the ground behind him. And as above. I suspect the -4 was indeed contact damage.

Well... you should have easily killed him. if you hit. But auto-aim has a downside close up vs targets with such a narrow and low rear hitbox. As you fired before you got over his side. If you see around the 11 second mark. Your gun made a massive correction once you slipped past him and went lower again. I guess that's when he aimed over the rear hitbox for a second.

Nope: He penetrated your armor (non-penetrating hit can't deal 450 damage), and penetrating shots don't cause splash damage (as the explosion is inside your tank).

i just use nvidia's own shadow play for capturing daft clips as it prerecords for how ever long you want it to and then allows you to save it if needs be.

Replays are much better to use for recording, every detail from every angle can be investigated. Much easier on your system while playing. Replays take up practically no space......you can dump them at the end of the week if nothing memorable happens.

You can if you need to, use video capture to record a replay afterwards.

Your shell passed just between the gun and the hull while he penned you, so the shell blowed up inside you tank, with no splash damage. Would say a couple of unlucky rolls...

Really? Please explain this as I use an nVidia card. How do I do such a thing to record videos?
