What is it with this game?? I was in my Koori mori mini mo, and attacking a VK 36.01 H who was preoccupied fighting another tank, and had about half it's HP left. I fired three shots into it's clear armor (not the red part) at very close range, just a few metres (maybe 5?), and I was even right alongside of it for one of them. the first shot I used AP and got no pen, so I switched to APCR for the next two, and still got no pen! checking the stats I see that the max armor for the VK is 100mm for the turret front, and 80 for the sides and rear. for the hull it's 100 front, 80 side, and 60 rear. the pen of the Kuro's gun is 152 with AP and 205 with APCR. So why was there no pen?? I should have got pen even with AP, and should have killed it easily. insted it killed the tank it was fighting, and then killed me with one shot! so what the....?? and ppl say these games aren't rigged. yeah, right....

Greens 0 / Reds 7 situation normal..

Upload your replay to wotinspector.com and you can see for yourself where that shots goes. You need to do it today before the update tommorow.

Some of the armour models have weird little errors in them, too. I'm not sure about rigged, but buggy? Definitely.

The VK 36.01 H was put con the winning team.

RNG did the rest.

Every system is perfectly designed to produce exactly the results that it produces

For kuro AP shells, if VK is angled slightly, like by 10 degrees, the front becomes bouncy. And sides are bouncy till tank is angled at 35 degrees.

I don't know why many seemingly OK shots bounce.

Maybe too much rubber in the shells....
