Fix the no damage hits on the wheeled tanks already!

 

Seriously those no damage wheel hits 90% of the time you hit are really annoying, they are hard enough to hit as it is with a decent player driving it.

 

Or do you seriously want tanks that drive through a whole team rush the arty and then get away.

When you shoot the tracks of a regular tank and there are no hitboxes behind it to cause damage do you also start threads to discuss that super-mega-ultra issue?

You do realise you're not hitting the hull hitbox behind the wheels. You are just hitting the wheels that have no armor behind them. So in order for them to ''fix'' this, they would either need to lower the hull to the ground or make the wheels count as armor hitbox that when hit would take damage. Both would be stupid choices and they wheelies are working well right now.

 

Here's a nice little reference picture I made in pain on where to hit an EBR 75 to do HP damage to it:

Hint: hit inside the green lines

These kind of hits happen on tracked vehicles since day one, why are you only complaining about the wheelies? When you hit a track or wheel there must be hull behind it, in order to pen, when there isn't it just hits the wheel or track and then hits the ground. Or shoot HE to do damage to multiple wheels and make it drive a lot more slower, so it's easier for your team to hit it. Finally learn you tank's shell velocities so you know how much lead you need to add to hit them.

In a nutshell it showed that the wheels do not absorb shells, they only act as HE detonators, so don't shoot HE at the wheels unless you want to slow them down significantly.

 

The end of the video though, he states correctly that WVs are not at all OP, he just doesn't like to play against them so he demands them to be nerfed to the ground... :facepalm:

Do you always hit where you aimed? If no, shut up, you can't aim better or whatever with +-25% rng.

Nope, but if the shell doesn't go where I aimed then that just means I missed. So what I do is try again, not hop on the forum to whine about how unfair life is.

Forgot to look at this thread.
I see that I got the usual craptalk responses. :)

Nowhere did I say that I had a problem hitting (at least more than what I already do), but if you do hit it is just a crit 90% of the time if you hgit them when they run by at full speed. The slow down apperantly does not seem to help that much, they can repair fast.
Driven by a competent player they are a bit of a hassle to hit depending on the terrain feature and swerving, since you have to aim in front of them unless you are right on top of them so even if you get the aiming offset right you miss if they swerve. If you think you can pin point hit exactly where yuou aim under those circumstanses you ate just talking out of your [edited]especially when you include the RNG.

Either way I was not complaining about actually hitting but actually being "allowed" to damage them. :)
When you hit the tracks on a normal tank they tend to stop, wheelies just keep driving.

The bottom line is that it is not fun.

 

Also did not say that they where in any way shape or form OP.

All of which is largely irrelevant, the mechanic is the same mechanic that has been present in the game for years and there is nothing to 'fix'.

Fix your aim. If you hit the hull you damage them, if you don't damage them you missed.
