Is anyone missing point blank shots in FL. I mean when you are capping and a large T-32 comes in and you shoot it point plank into the side and get nothing  or maybe 2-3 seconds later a response from your commander you did no damage. This has happened about 5x already.

 

My ping on FL is about 125ms and regular randoms about 50 ms or under.

I think it's just basic packet loss, ping and fps issues. There's a lot going on at once across thousands of miles of computer networks. It's better now than the first issue of FL. At least I don't get total lock up now like I used to.

That may also be why I was able to go in to reset a cap with little HP left and the tank capping fired but I got no hit. So Im sure it works both ways.

Old hamster died recently. New hamster is still too weak, keeps fainting. SA hamster is in perfect form, so you can migrate south if NA start having issues.

I was in a STRV or whatever the tier 8 swedish td is ... defending zone F ... All tanks in cap circle are relatively motionless.  All light tanks or medium, except for the side of a t32.

 

Eight shots ... seven zero damage critical his and one shot of damage ... a 100% hp ammo rack

 

Which is why 25% RNG is the most ridiculous aspect of world of tanks.

Yes, very frequently. I see the same thing in random games too though.

I have noticed a lot of point-blank misses in randoms over the past week.

I've seen a few really weird things happen.  Once [in FL yesterday] I took a fully aimed shot at a the side of an enemy tank where the aiming circle was totally filled with tank (can't miss, right?).  The shot just vanished.  No bounce messages no shell splash, just gone.  Then another red tank suddenly appeared between me and my target.  It didn't drive into the spot, it just appeared.  Then the magic tank disappeared again and after a few seconds it was back and stayed there so I shot at it instead of my original target just beyond it.  Seems like server or connection issues.

And, unfortunately, WartGaming is too dense to realize this and at least try reducing it.

Players would enjoy the game more if they didn't miss so many fully-aimed shots!

about a year ago there was an update that caused me to miss a lot of point blank shots. if I had an autoloader, the first shot would miss but not the following shots. one day I was so convinced I was so close, I checked the replay and the shot barely missed (elceven 90).

 

they changed the dispersion a long time that would cause you to miss more but I havent heard anything recently.

I see this a lot as well and my pingnis generally 30-50ms for randoms. Don’t recall what it’s been for FL.  I also seem to be having large numbers of RNG rounds like one of the posters above.  It’s obnoxious.

Noticed lots of those over the past few days.

I've been experiencing issues since Sunday, not sure if it's related but they're similar to what you've described, both in and out of Frontline. I figured it was just me playing like [edited]. :)
