So I didn't get as many clips as I had hoped, turns out you can only survive a fall if you don't expect it. I wasted a few hours making this because I'm garbage at video editing. 

 

Enjoy,

Some friends and I have found that if you don't hold the forward key while falling or landing then you usually don't take fall damage. We were able to repeatedly fall off cliff while doing that, although sometimes we took some damage or died.

I've heard similar but after how many cliffs I've fallen off of trying to do it intentionally, it seems like that's not really the main factor that goes into it. I have another clip that I didn't bother to edit into the video, but it seems like I had a better chance of surviving as long as A.) I didn't land on track-side down. Or B.) You hit an ally tank first. 

 

I'm hoping to collect more clips in the future, might add onto the video but after Vegas crashing on me twice resulting in a mini heart attack thinking I lost everything, at least most of the edits were saved in auto-save (though it backtracked me a bit each time).

I have seen people thinking that not landing on your suspension, or like the front or back, may be the trick as well. Personally on Mines in a Chieftain I was regularly jumping off the edge and I'm pretty sure that I never landed on my tracks completely, although it's not that big of a drop off.

 

Personally I really like this bug or glitch as it helps combat the soap rocks lol.

I had a match in my mt-25 where I went fill tilt off the cliff in overlord to try to jump on a kv-2 below.  I landed without damage and got the kill but it wasn't what I expected to happen.  I've had other times though I try to slide down a hill and just explode as well.

Jake, what's not broken with this game?  Please do tell.  It's refreshing to finally see better players come forward and admit what most of us so bad players have known for a very long time yet have been trashed over it.  Most people think that we are just looking for an excuse or a crutch but that is so far from the truth it hurts.  We like you, just want the game fixed and better for everyone.  Thanks for stepping up.  +1'd you man.

Just an FYI folks.

 

It is an acknowledged issue.  And WG is indeed aware of it.

 

Note the date and the use of "already aware" for the folks saying this is normal and working as intended. :P

A bug report has already been filed for this issue and it's been reported to the dev team.


Considering that, at first glance this seems to be related to a pretty critical component of the game (physics engine) - it's probably a fairly complex issue and won't get fixed overnight. While I understand you're frustrated at the lack of a speedy resolution, keep in mind the nature of the issue - when we implemented the current Mission UI back in...2017? It broke the contact list for like 3 months.

 

Baby steps, friend; measure twice, cut once.

Was this dropping from the trees Viet Cong move a thing before 1.0? I can’t remember tbh, and I feel since 1.0 dropped there have been more apparent and zany physics issues since then. (Soap rocks, Godzilla tanks that can scale a vertical cliff face with 1 tread and flip)

We can all sleep easier, just knowing this is on the back burner.
