Ok so i have been having these peoblems where i shoot at tanks time after time and no results at all.No that went right through ,that one bounced or any indication that the tanks are even hit at all.I just had one of these battles i fired 10 plus times into a tier IX to no effect at all then i started firing at a tier VII with 22% health on the other side of the map and the same .Also was a tier VIII tank a good deal over from him and the same i bet i fired 20 times at 3 diffrent tanks in 3 diffrent locations and not one shot got any indication of a hit. i even moved my tank onto a small hill and changed from ap to he and back  the same no matter what i did my rounds had no effect at all.
Even when you shoot a tank you see the red icon blink i never even seen that it was as if i was shooting bubblegum balls at them .I was in my tiger II with crew at 100% working on my second skills set and they where at 75%.I have also see this on other tanks as well so what in the h3ll is going on with that ?my indiactor turns green and says a clear shot but nothing time after time as if i am shooting blanks!!!Has anyone other then me seen this?? started after this recent update.

Either a graphics or a physics glitch. It has happened to me, and is usually most memorable in clutch situations.

Not much you can do about it except fire again.

In the after battle information is it indicating that you're hitting these shots?

are you hittingthe tanks?
if they are a ways away, just cause you can see them does not mean you can hit them.
the "other side of the map"  statement makes me think that you  are just missing them.
the only time you can have a sure shot, is if the tank you are shooting at takes up your FULL reticle, so that really means it is about 30m away or so.
not the other side of the map.

also what is your ping.
because if your ping is high, it is hard to hit tanks that are far away, especially when they are moving.
you have to lead the tank accordingly with a good shot, and a high ping makes it hard to judge how much to lead them.
tha or your FPS is too low as well.

If your firing at distance your probability goes up that a miss will occur. Your rated accuracy is at 100 meters. I know the Tigers are infamous sniper tanks (have one my self), how ever I still miss occasionally with it, or a bounce, or a pen no damage. What did your after action report say about the amount of hits/pens you got? Damage you served?

How was your lag, ping and frame rate, maybe you were suffering from packet loss.  Lots of variables in the game.

If someone has detect on as a perk to their skill, they could have moved slightly to spoil your shot without you noticing it.

No nothing is shown as hits .Also all the tanks where not very far away and where clear shots .I wasn`t right on them but they where close this was on map Prokhorovka i was on the left side firing up that tracks at the tier IX that was about half up the tracks.Also the tier VIII and VII crossed the tracks to my right and where capturing our base so yeah i was very close to them.I was firing at the tier VIII and tier VII as they where aproaching from the right on our base .Like i said even moving my tank onto a small rise and changing type of ammo fired nothing was hitting .This is not the only time i have seen this and when i see it no rounds after the first ever hits after no matter what i do .

I check my net stats and while i sometimes at certian times of the day see higher pings due to congestion i have very rarely seen packet loss but i can`t say for sure i wasn`t getting packet loss at these times.As for FPS i get anywhere from 40 to 80 depending on map and where i`m at on the map.But if i was getting that kind of packetloss i should have seens some jumpy movments .ok so the next time i see this i`m going to record it and the battle report after and post it here.
