I am playing this game from the beginning and this is going straight down. Ghost shells, not penetrating low armor tanks with high caliber guns and high pen, to critical hits on wheeled tanks , list go on and on, and what did you do to fix that. By releasing premium tanks and better shadows ? Is that what we need ?

The game's purpose is not be fun, but to make money. When you understand that, it all start to make sense. I had long break and have been playing now some time, but I will go away soon. Fun for short periods, so annoying for long run.

Instal the battle hits mod and you can see after the battle in the garage why your shells did not pen.

Kinda pointless. By the time the numbers have been crunched the actual impact point server side will be different to what is shown in that mod.

I believe him. Same has occurred to me many many times. And no, I dont have replay. We are not in a courtroom in which every statement should be proved. But I dont believe in Santa Claus either. Btw, say greetings to viktor.

I believe him too, but just because you fire a 200+ pen shell at 30mm of side armour doesn't mean it should go through because without a replay to see what actually happened there is no way to see if the angling was bad or he didn't hit where he thought he did.

 

We may not be in a courtroom where every statement should be proved, but that doesn't mean every statement should be believed either.

Praise Rngesus. And don't aim for wheels, there is nothing to hit behind them, that's why you get crits without damage. Player with your experience surely should know that though...

Its been said above.   But the game is fun, for WG, they are laughing their collective rears off,  I personally believe they dont play thier own game for any length of time at all.

 

Trick is to choose what you pay for, dont every try to buy every tank.  Also find a group of people you get on with (or they just put up with you) and play with them.

 

I've noticed that WG or WoT are not even nominated for the awards this year, Although if there was a catagory of milking the player base, I'm sure they would win it.

Truth.

The other day I was playing a match on Overlord, there was a Type 5 fighting on the beach, two Skorpions jumped down the cliff to get to him. It was a poor jump and both smacked right on the ground.

What happened? One BOUNCED on its flank and righted itself as if it were made of rubber (no damage), the other landed on its turret (some damage but far from being enough to destroy it).

Sometimes I wish I were saving replays... :child:

No pens do not surprise me at all.   My favourite was one I actually laughed out loud at as I did a non aimed snapshot at a high speed Hellcat hit and bounced with gold ammo.... RNG givith and RNG taketh away....   I was amazed I hit, and the fact it bounced its side just made it hilarious.

I believe that's what you both think happened but when we do get replays it always turns out that it was something else entirely.

 

So, as we often say, replay or it didn't happen.

Why play if it isn't fun?

 

No point complaining about things as WG won't listen so go be your own person.

 

I quit WoWS at the start of the year as it was really getting dire in terms of changes. Still enjoy things here but we'll see how long that lasts.

Happens occasionally. 

 

Far worse is, when you bounce AP off the front of a LTTB ~20 meters away, fired from your T92 (lt), switch to HEAT and bounce again. :D

I believe him too. However, he does not know that his shell didn't actually hit the flat surface on the AMX's turret side or the very edge of the silhouette which resulted in a ricochet. It can happen. However, hitting the surface visibly resulting in no pen could only be a server lag. We're not in a courtroom, but we still don't buy into anything without valid context backing it up.

Get the battle hit mod, there you can see where and why your shots bounced, most likely hit the tracks below the hull, even when it looks like the side of a tank with server lag etc chances are it wasn't.
