The only reason I can see for WG nerffing rounds more so that I can fire 24 rounds and get "pen, no damage" 23 times in a row is because either they are the worst developers or they want to go out of business.  For the developers to make that number of pen rounds with no damage in a row is against the odds and just bad programming.  It just seems so stupid to me for a developer to do everything it can to drive newer customers away.  I guess their management will get huge bonus for losing as many customers as fast as possible.  Very disappointing.  Do not believe I'll try any other WG products if this is an example of their programming.

Have you tried opening your eyes and aiming? I hear that works.


Edit -- Also: Post replay please of 23 non-damaging, penning hits please, and I'll post the reason why.

23 times in a row? Exaggerate much?

Aim better...stop shooting tracks. Yes...some tanks have spaced armor where they shouldn't but it something you just have to accept.

Stop aiming at the tracks, and wait another 1k in battles and come back and think abou what you said

Well, the amount of KV-1S battle data per a day in RU cluster they're reviewing is 2,000 times more than total battle of yours. I think they know about making virtual tanks at least better than you...

You have to hit a tank to do damage, something you rarely do with your 40% hit rate.

HEY GUYS PENS FOR NO DAMAGE ARE A MYTH AND TOTALLY NEVER HAPPEN UNLESS YOU HIT THE TRACK OR MAGICAL SPACED ARMOR

LOL XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

I think 13:40 is where you want to look.  If I'm wrong, just look for the IS-3.

Aww, c'mon, guys. He does have a semi-valid point, and we all know it. One reason I stopped buying Gold for free-xp'ing is because of all the stupid RNG things that seem to happen at the most inopportune times. I used to play everyday, then gameplay became more frustrating and annoying (which games are NOT supposed to be). I just came back to playing after a 3-month hiatus because of the new update, yet it's still more of the same.

Yes, a lot of it does have to do with aiming, and accuracy and pen of guns, but can you sit there and honestly say you haven't scratched your head at some of the "Penetration!" and "We hit them hard!" announcements when you aim carefully at a lower glacis or side of a weak-armored tank, yet do no damage? It happens a lot more than you think. I challenge everyone to mark down every no-damage pen during 3 maps, and average them out. I'd bet its a higher percentage than most of you are pretending it is here.

My guess is it was his first time encountering a Super Pershing.

I agree though, WG should be able to do something about the voice bite.  It is misleading to people that don't know how it works.

In the end if you pen with no damage.  You deserved to do no damage, your gunner is the one that is at fault for announcing that it went through.

At OP: You are new around here so you clearly haven't figured out that you can't speak anything badly against the developers without a cascading serenade of hate falling on you.

Now, on to your point. There are plenty of things that WG has done and will do that will lose customers. But the truth is that they have created a particularly appealing breed of "internet crack" here. And they have a lot of people (myself included although I have recently seen a addiction counselor for internet tanks and have kicked my habit!) throwing money at them to progress through the trees to the t10 tanks. I have never played WoW but from what I hear about it, this game has the same addictive tendency. And for those of us that have the ability and propensity to give them money....we tend to do so to speed our grind. I have thrown over $300 (maybe $400-500) at this game. But not anymore. The non-damage penetrating hits don't even bother me. There are a host of other issues that got to me. But I learned a long time ago not to come here and complain about them. Then the haters hate. I don't need that.

Oh I'll still come and play a few tanks in my (now) non-premium account because my son wants to play with me. But I am otherwise on an extended break from the game so that I can love it again. And next time I come back to it (if I do) then I hope I keep my money in my pocket. But, the crack is appealing. My advice to you then is to either leave before your addiction and NEED for the next tank (and then the next. And the next. And the next...) gets to you; or learn to accept these quirks.. Go find some other fun thing to occupy your time. WG will not change that apparently as people have complained against it for well over a year on these forums. I wish you the best of luck. That really is a thing you will have to come to accept. It happens.

I sold my T30 after 23 no dmg pens/misses in a row in 2 games. I only feel like 3 of them had a chance to miss, since the rest were easy shots. Not quite the same as 23 no dmg pens in a row, but close. That tank never worked for me, but seems to be great for some people. Could never figure it out. Have a feeling it has to do more with server and my screen not always sharing the same info more than a broken game.  I quoted you just to say how much I love your sig. I saw -G- and thought to myself, how did this scrub get in with those guys. LOL.

Seriously, it can take way too many arty rounds.  Spaced armor is getting silly nowadays.

I did the same but edited my (rather rude) remarks out of my comment because, well frankly, what I posted was not nearly as nicely put. How the heck does he tell ANYONE how to play this game? Really?!?!?!?

The T30 is hated by the RNG gods. This is known. No other tank can induce rage like the T30.

I too, find 0-dmg pens frustrating, BUT, the nice thing about this type of game is that the same thing happens to everyone, and works for you as well as against you.

Hearing "They got our rangefinder" is ever so sweet when you are down to your last 12 HP and get hit for 0 dmg.
