has something happened to HE Senlac shells?

They were the best thing about this tank. Today Im doping lots of 30hp on tanks I would normally have done 150 average.

Even a Tier X heavy I could do some damage, now they do 10-20.

Since posting this I played a few more matches and for sure something has happened to this tank.

I know I'm pissing in the wind here  but. my hunch is a little secret nerf on the senlacs ability to do damage with HE shells becasue the prem version is much better than the regular version - or at least it was until today.

It's a premium, they wouldn't nerf it regardless.

150 HE dmg sounds highly unlikely considering the low splash (83.4mm guns barely have any mention worthy splash) and 280 standard HE dmg, sounds more like an AP(CR) pen

UPDATE:

 

Today its fien again. Ok, so likely nothing happened at all. But it wasn't a losing streak scenario, I just seemed to have an unlucky streak of low rolls. I mean Skorpions doing 40 hp when usually it would be around 250. Today RNG is back to normal. :bajan:

BTW, this is my favorite light tank of them all.

Maybe I should try the British lights? I might get on well with them.

You still have to pen the shells to do full dmg, if you hit the tracks or gun or any thick part, it can be <50.

Paper tanks like Skorpion and SU are more deceptive than you might think, can't just autoaim every shell, and if you hit the gun you won't do any dmg.

This is not just Senlac but any HE shells, for example, FV215 183 HE direct hit on Grille turret, zero dmg.

 

No if you like Senlac HE you should go for EBRs since they have similar pen values. Although Senlac DPM of 3.7k+ with HE is unrivalled.
