Question about mechanics,  hope this is the proper place. Today I was in the Chinese tier 2 with the pom - pom. Spotted a stationary tank side on. My crew is 110. I decided to let auto aim take over fully zoomed. Fired all 4 shots slowly. No hits. The aiming reticle was centered with nothing but tank in it. My fps was 24 and ping 89. How is this even possible?

There's many reasons this may happen. Without watching the replay, we can't tell us what happened in your case. But some of this might be the reason this happened:

 

1. There was an obstacle betwen you and the tank, a rock, or something, as autoaim centers in the middle of the tank, it doesnt take in account those obstacles, leading to your pom pom hitting the obstacle instead.

2. The target was outside the effective range of the weapon, some guns have slow bullets that lose momentum and just lose penetration and eventually fall somewhere before landing on the target. The pom pom is a great weapon in short range, but in medium range, due of its recoil the second shot hardly hits.

3. The Random Number Generation (aka RGN), rolled bad in the aim and your first shoot went to the stars, the second due of the recoil ended in pluto.

4. There was an unseen tank betwen you and the target. Sometimes, a tank with better camo might be right where you are aiming at other tank, makiing you think you missed your hit when you actually are hitting the other stationary unspotted tank. Its really fun when this happens and you kill a tank you never seen.

 

I highly suggest you to learn from the lower tiers already, to not use autoaim, its unreliable, it always aims to the center of the tank, leading to unnefective shoots as they go to areas of the tank that have high armor or a sloop, making it richochet or just not penetrating. Learn from the start to manual aim and go for the weak spots (Like comander coupulas, lower glacis, crew hatches, etc. the sooner you learn this, the better. You might want to use autoaim, while moving at fast speed around a tank, until you get used to the controls it might help you, but unless you are comming from behind or the side of the tank, autoaim will always ruin you.

 

I hope this helps.

 How do the modifiers work on training? You have to get over 100% to get 100% with the modifier, so it seems to not be valid having them. Have a +5 fan but have to get 105% to get the skill. Doesn't make cense. Even commanders bonus does this.

Is there a way on the xbox360 version,to set your experience on elite & premium tanks,to go towards training crew,or do I HAVE to either spend gold or let the experience go to waste?

I used to play on PC.It gave me the option to put that xp towards training the crew

Hi everyone.  I have been trying to get an answer to a question I have had for some time.  I have been playing WoT on xbox 360 for quite a while and have gotten good at it so I understand the gameplay mechanics pretty well.  However, I got rid of my 360 to get the xbox one.  Has there been any word at all about WoT going to xbox one?  They would be foolish not to since PS4 has War Thunder on it.

I have a VK with a 88mm gun. I thought it was being reloaded very very slowly in the game. And that it's punch was very much off. So I looked it up at several sources  and found that a 88 fired circa 20 rpm. = circa every 4 seconds. Mine is nearly 8 seconds to reload. And It's rounds usually bounce or do nothing when it does hit. Now the 88 was the MOST FEARED anti tank and tank gun in the world. So why has the game DEGRADED it so much? The Game is GREAT otherwise. I just seems as if some of the equipment has been DEGRADED to the point of POP GUNS. I found that even the Soviet I.S. tankers FEARED the 88. Lt. Ernst killed 14 T-34's in less than a day. You couldn't do that here. But otherwise the GAME IS GREAT.

Hi everyone, I'm Parox and I have a small youtube channel. I have previously used it to upload good games that I've played just to show my cousins and anyone who would watch. Now I am more focused on trying to educate the newer players in wot by explaining various gameplay mechanics and general tips on how to be more effective on the battlefield!
