Cool, post your last 5 replays to show us this clear evidence of WG rigging the crits on your tanks.

Really?

Are you going to watch 5 replays?

If they are subsequent replays and contain something as remarkable as a non-ammo rack prone tank getting ammo racked every time just after you use a repair kit, yes.

 

Because if it isn't drama and tears and hyperbole, that is remarkable.

Yes, it is annoying when you use a kit and then get crit damaged again while it is on cool down. So annoying, in fact, that you notice it almost every time it happens.

If you provide them.

 

But that's usually where these conversations end.

I do agree with the OP that critical hits happen more frequently than they did in the past.

These days it seems that every other hit causes some kind of critical damage, often exactly the one that makes it difficult (ammo rack) or impossible (they got your gun) to defend.

A lot of this is perception, but some probably related to an increase of powerful gun quantities or hits penetrating more often (premium ammo).

About the only way to avoid it is to avoid being hit.

Of course, if you are hull down and only exposing a non critical part of your tank then Im sure you see crits less often (aside from HE crits of course).

Still, as stated, to get ammo racked in 5 consecutive games does warrent proof. I also would love to see the replays.

For me, it seems to happen more often in UK tanks (Caernarvon in particular) but as has been mentioned, it might be that we simply notice it more, especially if you have several in quick succession over just a few games. Anyway, good luck, best wishes and don't worry about the usual responses from the usual punters.

I notice crits the most in the tier 9 UDES med, virtually every single shot (seemingly no matter where I get hit) damages the fuel tanks in the process, and that's with an improved fire extinguisher mounted.

 

It's not uncommon for me to have to repair the tanks 2-3 times a game, I guess the outer shell was made from fuel tanks or something on it... :D

A: Some tanks are called wandering ammo racks for a reason. B: Even if you have driven said tank many times with no ammo rack damage. It's just a simple change of other guns hitting you. As in higher module alpha. Suddenly it's living up to its name. As not all guns will damage your modules the same way, or as fast.

 

Equipment and crew skills can help with it, if it's such an issue. My Bulldog back in the day got killed on the first hit 4 out 10 games due to the ammo rack going red instantly. It became 1 out 10 with crew skill alone. The A-43 I just bought back got ammo racked every single game in a +1 or 2, twice in a row many times. As his module HP is way to small vs the tier 7+ module alpha guns he faces. Top tier it never was an issue.

Depends on which tank you were playing... Some tanks have weaker ammo racks.

 

Also, where you get hit, and from.

Simple, when you get ammoracked in the caernarvon it means you are over peeking. Ammo rack is at the front, they damage it by penetrating your lower plate.

Indeed, you would think someone with unquestionable evidence that finally proves once and for all that WG are a bunch of lying, cheating game riggers would want to get the truth out there ASAP.

 

Maybe something important came up? I'm sure OP will be along with his replays shortly..... :popcorn:
