How? He or she was driving full speed, I already wacked it once and I shot if for second time in its side but it bounced. How?!? I was so confused that I forgot to screen shot it

Screen shot would have been useless anyway, as would that hit location MOD. Provide replays, it's not that hard.

I dont record replays. I will if I move WoT to one of my new 8 TB hard drives, but not on SSD.

 

What is MOD? And how its possible that 175 mm penetration gun bounce from 13 mm armour?

May have hit the gun or the wheels without actually hitting the main armour.

Because obviously it did not hit 13 mm of armor, it hit something else.

From what I have seen I got it in the middle of the armour, but it could be possible, I'm old and tired :D Thanks for replay

Don't trust much the tracers in game. They're quite unaccurate. :)

Create a shortcut to your replay folder on the desktop, open it and delete all replays after you have had a session. 20 battle replays will consume about 20mb of space that you get back the moment you log out of the game and clean it. Seems like a very bad arguement for not recording.

 

If nothing out of the ordinary happens, then delete it. If something out of the ordinary happens then upload it to wotrelpays and then delete it and share the link here.

 

Nobody will be able to answer your question without the replay, everything will be speculation, which will probably tell you nothing.

If that's true, wouldn't be the same if I just stand on hill and fire round after round in direction where I assume the enemy is?

I'm lazy :D And WoT is not the only game I play. I have just 240 GB SSD, but I plan to get 480 or 1 TB SSD in near future then I will leave replays on

I had a 128mm Skorpion G shell bounce off the side of a AMD-178b too, no critical hit. Something funky going on with the hit model.

I'm willing to bet that in the after battle report....he still had 0 damage blocked. You could have hit the tip of the gun for all we know. Skorpion G shows the block icon a few times when you hit the gun to name one. Still... zero damage blocked. As in a module hit, not an armor hit.

A long, long time ago, someone managed to shoot the view port on my ELC AMX, I took no damage but the module got knocked out. So weird craphappens all the time.

No, just have in mind that small angular error and time delays makes tracers not so reliable on looking where your shell actually hit. Tracers are there just as a visual approximation (that can be good in perfecr conditions) of the flight path of your shells.

That's why replays are useful. With mods you can see where the shell drop with better accuracy using hit decals (if presents) or the informations the server gave you (battle hit mod IIRC).
