Hey 

 

I played a game yesterday in my EBR 105.  I was hit by arty taking most of my Hp leaving me with 46 points, Most my modules smashed and wheels in bits. Thing is I still had 46 life points left but the game said I was dead due to all Crew being killed. I know this happens when you drowned but after playing a lot of games I have never had this happen to me while not in water. I do have a pic but not sure how to up loan on here. 

 

Has anyone had this happen to them in them in the past? 

 

No hate here just curiosity.

 

thanks

Yeah it has happened to me several times, but it's mostly a low tier thing. It sucks but it is what it is.

Yes, on japanese T2 light tanks with just two crew members and paper armor.

A salvo from a machine gun kills both members but the tank still have 50% of his hitpoints.

It's happened to me at least twice and I've seen it happen to others a few times. A perfectly normal, albeit rare, game situation.

Happened to me at T8 with Lorraine 40T when a single arty shot killed whole crew. This single arty shot decided the whole battle. Stupid game design when such things can happen without being able to protect against them. Getting ammo rack damaged first and only then blow turret or first damaged fuel tanks than fire is fine (if there would always be a small amount of time to be able to fix it). Getting random engine fire is stupid though. Killing whole crew by a single shot without being able to get back is stupid even more.

It usually only happens in lower tiers, haven't had it happen in higher tiers actually in all the games I've played.

 

It's actually a stupid mechanic since the crew can only get wounded in this game so having all of them wounded would not logically end in your tank "dying". Should have been removed years ago.

The fewer crew members you have, the bigger the chance of it happening. But not something I see often on tanks with 4 crews, VS the ELC that has 2 crew slots. So that's a tank I've seen it a fair few times on over the years. But as HE only has a 10% chance to take out a crew on an internal explosion. And AP etc has 33%. It's more common on lower tiers with all the AP magazine guns with 40 rounds firing at a paper target rapidly, like the Pz 1C or T7 CC.

As WG did explain when asked about it a few years ago. The US crew uses the phrase "bought the farm" that more or less means death in battle. And when everyone has bought a farm, there is no one left to use the med-kit. And the WOT wiki page uses the words "Complete Crew Death" to explain the effect.

It happened to me twice, it's most common on tanks with low crew members (2 or 3).

It happened to me in my Setter a few days ago - tracked by arty and then HE'ed by a heavy almost immediately; crew dead and almost half my hit points left. It has been a few years and many tiers lower since it last happened.
