I have not played in a while, but the lack of penetrating is so obviously different from the last time I played.  Several battles with ZERO damage is..... well I would need to swear at you WG just to describe the problem.  And what is with this IS tank, it NEVER gets pens.

That's just how the 122mm D-25T is like, with 175mm you just gotta know where to aim

If you're talking about the tier 7 heavy then you should improve your aim, its gun is a bit poor compared to other tier 7 heavies in terms of pen.

Another ZERO damage game in my PK IV S.  I am going to post every battle get zero damage in to make a point.

Have you played the FV4202 against tier-X vehicles or the FV201 (A45) against tier-IX vehicles? Fun tanks. :D

 

Or on lower tier vehicles, the KV-220 against same some tier heavies and higher? This tank is not fun. :(

If you're going to do that you might as well just upload the replays so others can review them

I don't know if your only referring to a specific tank, but my personal experience has been to watch my win8 go backwards after every so called improvement update, and right when it reverses itself and starts climbing, bam, there's another update. Very frustrating game for me, I aim for so-called weak spots and if they have a lower win8 then me, I pen, if their win8 is higher then mine, I bounce. Been playing 14 months and that has been the pattern I've noticed.  Very biased and unbalanced game, like none I ever seen before. If your win8 is not high, rng will make u nothing but a statistic for the green meanies.

Replays would help.  I've not noticed any issues with penetration mechanics in the last few days... so I doubt it is something at the server side.

Take the time to learn general tank weak spots.  After that, if you fail to pen vs a specific tank, learn it's specific weak spots so it doesn't happen again.

Finally got some damage in the t-34 only to have a light tank VK 28.01 kill me frontally.  Sure seem to pen me just fine.

I suggest you study up your opponent's armor with the 3D armor models on http://tanks.gg/

 

You can even set it so that you are comparing their armor to the gun on your IS.  Then you'll know where you need to aim to get the best chance at penetrating them.

T-34 is probably the best Tier 5 medium in the game, but it has no armor.  Expect almost everything to pen you.

How do you fail to pen stuff in a T-34?

Maybe download a hit skin mod so you know where to shoot?

You don't fail to, but that's not what he said :P

I made the entire grind with the awful top 76mm because of historical accuracy, it has good pen for tier 5.

 

Then I discovered T-34-57 wasn't a WG invention, so I might try it out someday.

I will admit the number of one shots that crit just for the one shot to destroy me is getting irritating as feck.

FYI I have over 21k battles over 100 tanks in my garage, so I know how and where to hit a target.    My t-34 is the American tier 8.   Another battled with ZERO damage in my PZ IV S.
