I think battlehits mod should be added to the vanilla client so that players can see for themselves the actions of their rounds and the actions of enemy incoming rounds.

The most common complaint about the game is RNG.  People are constantly complaining the game is 'rigged' because of various situations.

It would be a boon to the game if wot made a smidge of effort to quell these daily complaints with a few simple solutions.

Battlehits mod being added to the vanilla client being one of them.

take care,

be safe.

Considering the previous mods WG has added to the game, I'd see it happening eventually.

A vanilla Battle Hits would be nice, maybe WG Could even make it display hits based on the server and not client-only.

I agree, the Battlehits mod boosted my understanding of what was happening in the game tremendously.

This is the one mod that has made me consider installing mods. Haven’t caved yet and done it, but still. I would love this in the vanilla client, even better if server info could be added as indicated above.

Maybe let players toggle it on or off?

I've never used it myself, but I've seen screen shots. It looks like a handy tool that would be nice to have in game.

It should be a pane on the post-battle report. Would make better players out of everyone.

There is the issue that does put a bit of a load on a PC, though.  WOT tries to not bog the UI down too much because a lot of players are playing on low performance machines.

Realistically speaking, they should provide all the information, as in "how much you didn't pen by" or "how off your shot was", in other words, they should let us see the "dice rolls".  Other games that use RNG do it.

I have a hit log that tells me what part of my tank I was hit in(tracks, hull, turret, gun) and I end up taking more hits in the tracks when I think I'm hull down than I care to admit.

They should add it but I can't thin of a single mod that WG added to the game that was as good as the original.

Might be tricky. Currently, using the replay data is easy because it's already compiled by the client at the end of each battle. Getting server side info would be a bit of extra load because you should only be able to get it after the battle, and it's unknown whether the server currently records replays for itself.

Ditto. I would like to have but I only play vanilla. Also some of those garage mods would be nice.

I would like this as well. Battle hits is one of the best mods because you can see how RNG works and better accommodate for it. Anything that helps players better understand what is happening in-game is a plus. Game mechanics should be as transparent as possible.
