Why doesn't HEAT count as blocked damage?  I don't get the rationale behind it.  If you are in a tank suitable for blocking you get gold spammed at you left right and centre and half of it counts as damage incurred (HEAT) but not as blocked!!! How irrational is that?

Maybe because HEAT managed to penetrate your armor ?

if heat is eaten by tracks, it doesn't count as blocked, but if it simply doesn't pen becasue of thickness it will count as blocked.

If the jet direction would hit the tank primary armour but fail to pen or get absorbed first, the HEAT shell will count as blocked damage. If the shell jet won't hit the primary armour it won't count as blocked, exactly like AP and APCR shells.

Why does critical damage not count as damage, heat annoys the hell out of me, all seems to say it should melt gun mantlets and the like, yet I hit fully aimed shots on turrets and sides and zero damage. HE is far better.

Also, I think you should make a 3rd topic. Maybe with 2 or more polls and this time also with a pictures. Possibly a 4th thread with same heading a video.

Who ever is telling you heat melts gun mantlets or such, never ever listen them again. Heat is good against flat surfaces or highly angled surfaces where it can overmatch, like against Swedish TDs.

 

Turrets are usually strong, dont just spam heat at them just because you have heat. Sides also have spaced armour, which eats heat, same goes with the tracks.

 

I hope you will start learning the game at some point. At least you're active, I give you that.

HEAT doesn't overmatch, but it has high autobounce angle.

Whoever made and approved blocking missions is either ignorant or a sadist.

Not entirely true! A ricochet is impossible in the case of triple overmatch but a non penetration is possible if the angle is extreme enough and the penetration is low enough.
