hi i know other posters have touched on it but im having a lot of troubles with my bl10, shooting targets and the shell just disapears even at point blank range, no explosion, no crew feedback, i have to manually check the tank i shot with the xhair to check to see if i damaged it, upto 40% of my shots just disapear with this gun, i had a kv3 down to 1 hp and i fired 3 shots at him 1 bounced the other 2 disapeared and he killed me from less than 30 meters
i see others saying similar things about bl10 is this a known bug or issue, i dont see how it can be anything else,i know the gun isnt the most accurate but these just are just disapearing,not even an explosion when they hit the ground or a rock

There is an issue with ghost rounds. I have had it on every gun I own none more than others but it always never fails it has to be the first round I fire from an ambush position.

Interesting ... I had this with my IS-3 the other night at close range and just thought it was a miss somehow. I thought I had all the aiming circle on the enemy tank but when I missed just guessed that some part of it was not and that is where the round went.

I have had this problem all the way back since closed beta. It has gotten me killed a few times. I have played tons of different tanks and TDs and the problem is across the board. I did notice that some tanks and TDs it happens a lot more on. My JT prewipe it happened the most on.

i only noticed this problem in the last few days , never had this problem before, its really happening a lot for me just not i shot at an is4 2 times from 150 meters both shots just disapear, the is4 wasnt moving and i had a clear side shot on the first one and nothing, the is4 then turns its nose towards me and i fire again and again nothing, then he killed me, no explosion, no tracer, no deflection, nothing from the crew, the shot just disapears, its really bad at the moment, i can put up with bugs and work around them but this is like every game im playing in its happening, they are even calling me noob and laughing, i have an almost elite isu152 and i only noticed it happening a day or so after i bought the bl10, i havnt tried another gun but i will before i next post hopefully this issue goes away and quick

I've been having this too actually, and what has usually been happening is that I have someone aimed in either well enough, or close enough, so that the circle is smaller than their tank, and the shell and tracer go through and don't ever explode on anything. The go through the target, through the hill behind it, off into space, and through the B-17 Flying Fortress that WoPlanes has circling the battlefield.

It always seems to happen on ambush shots for me...And I am getting killed because of it. I fire a round and it doesn't hit anywhere near the target even though my reticule is completely zeroized and the targets broad side is fully exposed and next to a mountain. The round apparenlty misses but doesn't hit the mountain behind it nor the ground in front of it....It just vanishes.

Yeah they happen to me sometimes. I just had one actually. IS-3 was moving up on me, he was filling up the firing circle and I shot... and nothing.

Yeah they really need to work on this issue. Was this issue around since Beta?

ok.......I just had a round where I shot at a damn KV, in my SU-85, in the open STANDING STILL, aiming right where his turret meets the main body of his tank.  Over 15 rounds shot and only ONE hit with the reticle completely minimized and me not moving! FIX THIS CRAP! He should have been dead by my third shot! There were no indications as to where my rounds went at ANY TIME! I was firing from an elevated position so if I was shorting the round or over shooting it would hit the fricken ground, BUT NOTHING HAPPENED! When my 16th round or so hit, he just turned and one shotted me since everyone else on my damn team was wasted by either him or the only other guy on there team. There is some sort of bug with sniper mode or something that is causing rounds to just effing disappear.  I should have been able to win the match considering the other tank was oblivious to where I was and I knew where he was but since I had my shots keep disappearing I am sure i was lit up like a damn christmas tree.

If they aren't onto it yet from in game logs and this forum, then they need to just close this forum cause they aren't looking, and get better logs that actually log things.

I have a feeling they probably know it exists but are tracking it to make sure when they fix it, they fix just the problem without creating something else. At least I hope that is the case :D

Part of it I think is the rounds are off. I've hit a tank and caused damage, then shot again not moving my gun or him not moving and get nothing. I have seen rounds take off and go far right, left, high, low even though I'm centered on the tank the whole time. Aiming is off in the game I think which could account for nothing happening cause you don't always see your rounds.

could be they don't want free players to do much damage to paying players.

I doubt that, I pay premium and it happens to me every match.

6 rounds in a row with my KV 3 on a stationary arty and I am not moving with reticle completely zeroized just about 5 minutes ago. Arty was in front of a mountain so I should have seen where my rounds were going if I over shot or undershot but there was absolutely NOTHING hit be it the tank, ground or mountain. The round never existed. Like I am loading blanks and playing Russian roulette trying to figure out which round is a real damn round. Fix this s*** because it is beyond aggravating.

It doesn't help either that this can't be SS'd since a stationary pic would reveal nothing.
