I was doing a mission where you need to deal 3K damage but also block 3K damage, everything was going fine until the Blocked damage thing stop counting, WTF? Can someone please explain what the issue was. I was getting shot by an enemy tank, I was blocking its damage, but WG did not think I was. LOL

I assume you mean the Bret Panther.

 

He switched to HE after failing to pen your side earlier and HE doesn't count as blocked damage. It has to be an actual penetrator round, AP/APCR and your armour needs to deflect it to count.

Which is kinda dumb since most of the HE shell's potential damage is blocked by armor if it's thick enough, even resulting in a completely absorbed (zero damage) hit sometimes. It really should count towards damage blocked in some way.

 

It's so easy to break people's blocking missions by simply spamming HE at armor you can't penetrate. It's just dumb.

Yeah! I want my money back. Because I was actually placing my KV-2 in a way so that the enemy tank couldn't deal damage on mine.

Well if i would haven been your enemy you would have had a similar result, i simple don't waste my time shooting when i won't pen anyways.

So this block x damage mission always require a certain amount of stupid to shoot you without having a chance to pen.... problem is those are usually the people that fit a derp on anything as "rightclick/leftclick" is easier then having to learn how and when you can pen.

So...we should now play in a way that's convenient to the opponents?
