Hi,

 

since 1.0 I am noticing a substantial increase in ricochet and zero damage crits. I'm playing the same tanks as I'm working through a couple of lines, and for credits. Accuracy still seems the same and I don't auto-aim.

 

I'm not sure with this game how to collect this data and parse it to see what is going on. Empirically what I am noticing is that my hit/pen numbers are way off. relatively same hits but penetrating rounds are very low compared with my normal result for the same tanks.

 

Has anyone else noted a similar occurrence?

 

Can anyone advise other than manually recording is there a way to log this data to examine more easily?

 

*I'm not looking for the LTP BS that gets spruiked any time someone has the temerity to suggest an unintended consequence or a difference of opinion.

Under specific tank results (3rd tab of your results window) there is a breakdown of %hit, %pen for all your shells.

 

For your control data - go training room, take along some ammo and fire under controlled conditions and record the results.

THanks Neokai I had thought of doing that but had not considered the use of the tab in service record :).

 

I'll need to work out some control circumstances to ensure the test is meaningful and need a partner in crime to do it :). Shame I can't log in an AI bot to just sit dead still
