Just played Karelia in a light - beginning of game go to that crevice thingy at the bottom of the south east ridge to spot the camping TDs and reversing in ended up on my side wedged against the rock. No one came to help, so I spent the whole game as a trapped spectator. I know I'm dumb and it has happened to me a number of times before which makes me even dumber, but why can't they fix stupid mechanics like that - either let you drive off if your tracks are actually against something or blow up your tank like they do if you turn turtle. Instead I just have to sit there for 10 minutes pressing F7 and constantly being ignored in chat as no one came to help. 

 

PS we won, so it just confirms that I add absolutely nothing to the game

Yea, why should they waste time on things, that is not bringing a single dime?

If you drive like a madman and fall on your roof? No...

 

If you are on your side. Then there is no ticker and you can stay so for the rest of the battle. The 703II and IS-3-II etc can dual fire on the ground to push themself back around. I suspect it would take someone 10 min to make a basic code that generates push based on caliber. Might not help all tanks. But better than nothing.

wel they don't even have to write a single line of new code, just look at the wheeled vehicles, they can't fall on their side, they get upright even after getting killed

I told you I was dumb - it never crossed my mind that WG might be driven by greed not altruism...  (allegedly)

Been there - done that. It's annoying as hell. You can't leave the match because you get penalised, so you're stuffed unless the enemy find you a put you out of your misery. Ironically, it way harder to right a turned tank than it is to tilt it in the first place. Funnily enough, I've helped a few team mates with this problem recently, so I should know - even with heavy tanks. This never used to be a problem until they messed with the physics a while back. Seems no-one is interested in addressing it.

coding a button to unflip would be to hard :(  all recources are given to the marketing departments, noone for the quality of life and new map "department"

Because their competence is not enough to solve this problem.

Physics are ok, just to many maniacs driving around.

Something like using the repair kit to unflip a tank would be nice, or something like pressing the "any" key

It is annoying having to sit and wait for anyone to come by and help.

Many times I have found myself turning to my side, while zooming and backing up near walls.

Because they just dont care. It wont give WG any money - so they just dont give a s**t about it.

 

Oh wait. Dont be suprised if they add a function where you have to pay 100 gold/1 euro for every time - or at least have premium account - to make "reflip" doable....

As long as you are flipped to the side, you can leave the game without any consequences. If you are just plain stuck, then nothing you can do, unfortunately.

Making you stuck when on side or upside down is stupid when their physics can make your tank uncontrollable while just touching a piece of terrain or a wall.

Play with the wheeled vehicles, they almost never land on their side, no matter how hard you try...

I got flipped by invisible rock in a bush. Teammates were right beside me and decided not to help cos looking through straw is the way to play the game...

 

After calling help for 2 mins I left the match only to get a fu'king warning by noob WG about "leaving the game when it wasn't done". Like I'm gonna sit for 10 mins and watch morons play, don't think so WG. 

 

Get your sh*t together.

Learn to drive..

And no self distruct button...it will be abused.

And you can say only useble when you are on your side.....believe me people will master flipping.

 

And sometimes when you are on your side you can still do dmg or spotting

Like 2 weeks ago a leopard killed me with a range shot.....i die i see who shot me ...it was a leopard on his side.

What i do when i flip i ask for help if not i play my mobile game ...with a eye on the  screen ,becuase sometimes they will start helping because they need you.

 

And i always flip people back up if i can (i am  not going into enemy fire to flip you up)

IF you do help a flipped tank (most times in the beginning of the battle) you will have a battle buddy that match

becuase they will be verry thankfull you helped them out.

Funny thing is, the functionality is already in game. It was used in Steel Hunter mode.
