Just wondering if anyone is having the same problem... as i drive around the maps ive found that getting to close to rocks or terrain with rocks cause my tank to roll around said rock or pull me up and over the rock ... might be lag but it happens too much ...  i will try and drive up a slight hill but for some reason my tank will spin or just not respond ... usually exposing my tank .... again it might be lag but if anyone else notices this please comment .... may be a hit box error or something

Rocks and steep slopes cause tanks to lose all of their traction ever since the new physics came out. What you're referring to is what's been called "soap rocks" - It almost feels as though the rocks are made of soap, because you just keep sliding over them without stopping. It's super annoying. Just try to be as careful as you can near any kind of rock or steep slope.

There are also seemingly invisible hit boxes on some rocks.  I was beating up on a clan mate last night and his gun was visibly clear of the rock he was side scraping behind, but his shells kept exploding in the air near the rock.  Like the rock continues bitnis invisible.  This was on airfield at the back on heavy hill.  He was really annoyed because I should have been dead but instead was able to kill him.

Its funny how easily you slide off rocks, but if you happen to reverse into a rock, you easily climb and end up on your side. I'm not sure what WGs definition of fun is, but this isn't mine.
