Howdy Tankers,

 

The meme from Princess Bride comes to mind when I hear "Critical Hit" in battle.  I don't think WG knows what the word "critical" means.  Anyway, what adds to the fun is when you hear those words 12 times in one battle yet you don't get your "Cause 5 Critical Hits in One Battle" mission done.  If only they worked on fixing the game rather than bells and whistles to distract the masses...

 

       :facepalm:

This is literally the only game I've ever played where a critical hit was worse than just a hit.

That is EXACTLY my point!  They should change it to "slap" because sometimes slaps hurt and sometimes they don't - but feelings are always involved.  :girl:

WoT critical hits are more like 'critical misses' in other games ;)

When RNG gets on a roll its about all I can do not to toss some crap around my living room.  It is very suspicious how many shots pull off of where you aim to "armor not hit" crits.  Sure my tinfoil cap gets a little snug but damn!!

I put in a Ticket years ago because I heard that message about 8 times but did 0 damage and  not even one module broken on a 2 tier higher HT.

 

The answer I got was that "critical hit" meant only that a "die roll" was done on a module.  If the gun was too small to beat the die roll, there would never be damage no matter what message I got or how many times I got it.

That's the whole strategy they use to fleece your pockets, then laugh all they way to the bank that  you are so easily moved from the real problem(s) of this game.  They need to stop adding content, which helps keep things  unbalanced, and fix the real substantive issues that we & they both know are in this game.

Yeah I can just feel all the money draining from my wallet every time I get a critical hit.:facepalm:

Critical Hit = RNG Consolation Prize.

Not sure which is worse, whiffing a fully aimed point blank shot or having a tow hook absorb a 90 pound shell going 1500 feet per second like it was a styrofoam cup. 
There’s a reason(s) WOT isn’t allowed in eSports.

I think a lot of people just get hung up on the name since in a lot of games a critical hit just means more damage.  As far as missions go don't they usually only count internal modules?

I had a british commander say "Amazing shot" or "outstanding shot" after a no damage critical that said screen not penetrated.

Yeah.. No. Love the sarcasm though.

While I agree they maybe should have called those hits something else, it took about 10, maybe 20 battles to figure out. Once that happens getting worked up over the word 'critical' is just kind of dumb.

 

In regard to the mission, it depends on which mission you are doing. Some of the campaign/personal missions were internal components I thought, so tracks don't count (view ports prob not also, but not sure). This was all a while ago, so they may have changed some things. Just a offering a possibility.

Is that really a bad thing? I admit I'm not much into watching other people play video games but the few times I've watched 'esports' it's been pretty boring if not just downright stupid. WoT is the only game since DAOC that I actually do like watching others play though not streaming.

Come on man, it's a pity party over term usage!  Don't be a Debbie Downer and get all logical and crap!  /s

Hey no but for real what are you all using for the 5 critical hits mission? I am stuck on Chimera Bloc-2 and Union 8, I literally have tried so hard but not sure if im using the right tanks. What do you use and what is your strategies? Have gotten 4 a few times but never 5! Thank you!

Well, I posted a while back that the wording was bad, but when I have a battle where that's all I heard (literally about 20 times) and then I don't see that my "Cause 5 Critical Hits in Battle" Daily Mission was completed, it irked me a bit.  So I posted my frustration here both about the term and the fact that there is more to fix in this game rather than WG spend time on figuring out what skins to select as Epic Rewards...

Not much of an eSports person myself, just a back handed comment that there is so much randomness and imbalance in WOTs game mechanics, they won’t allow it. The replays are what actually converted me from playing WOT Blitz to PC. Just seemed more entertainment bang for the buck.

 You mean like the ridiculous Chinese porcelain one in the moon missions?  Just complete fail.  It's f-ugly.
