It has come to my attention recently as I am playing the Christmas event that their have been an increasing numbers of hackers in my matches, mainly people who drive British heavy tanks and Italian mediums.

where they shoot me through terrain or penetrate me regardless of angle of armor or thickness. It has driven me to the point of insanity the number of them that are doing it and I have found it really hard to grind to tier 10's and play my premiums and other tanks when every game has a S.Conquorer shooting me through terrain or a Progetto 65 penetrating my tank through armor that has a thickness of 400+mm. Is anybody else having this problem or is it largely a localized issue with the matchmaking I am getting?

hitting you through rocks/buildings/terrain etc could be because hitboxes on some things are completely borked. There are numerous that are way bigger than the object and some just simply dont exist. Was the building one where the enemy stuck his gun barrel through the building to shoot you? You can do that and also through dead tanks and its a broken mechanic that has existed for as long as ive been here.

Got any replays that show these incidents? 

That would be helpful.

Without seeing a replay first, I'd say you're just imagining things.

Because out of the issues stated, none of them can be done by hacks/cheats/illegal mods.

 

But since you specifically mention people shooting through terrain, what settings is your terrain quality set to?

Because if it is set to minimum, then it doesn't display the terrain as the server knows it.

Dear OP, may you present us with replays of some of those battles where you have encountered those pesky cheaters? That would be lovely.

We're pretty sure it's largely localised between your ears, but we'd be happy to see some replay to prove otherwise. Or any evidence for that matter. :)

Hacking as you described can be nullified by a very easy thing: activate replays & suddenly, hacks as you described vaiish; it is a proven anti-hacking method that activating replays disable most powerful hacks.

Do note that you can shoot through windows & through breakable walls if needed. As noted by another poster, if your terrain rendering is on minimum settings, the terrain does not always get rendered well enough with the terrain hitbox, causing differences.

There are no hackers, just bad players that can't play their tanks properly.

 

If you get hit through terrain it *MIGHT* be a wonky hitbox of the terrain/object you are behind but if it happens so often, it's more likely you positioning yourself like a potato and getting penned.

 

I'd watch your own replays to see where you make these mistakes and try to not make them in the future.

Imagining things can do that to you.

I would love to explain the difference between Peer2Peer and a Peer2Server to you, but I'm tired and I'm sure you can Google it yourself and see how what you claim is not possible....except if it's self-inflicted by having a poor computer with low graphic settings.

You mean hackers have a special relationship with particular lines and nations in game?

If the same hacker played a soviet medium he would become a normal player?
