No, its not an excuse for my poor abilities but I do find from time to time (increasing frequency since 1.0) that I lose complete control of my tank (no response from keyboard at all).  I can see it doing strange things like turret jerking but still driving in a smooth straight line I even had one case where one track was driving and there wasn't so it was doing very tight circles at full speed.  I would have said I lost connectivity but it was apparent that I still had some since I could tell I was taking shots, crashing into things (ramming enemy and friendlies alike) and eventually dying.  Was it packet loss?  The tank wasn't jumping all over the place which is the usual evidence.  The only fix I have found is to kill the game client and log back in at which point the game is done and dusted.  Is there something else I can try to regain control in a quicker fashion?

Send a support ticket. If you're 100% sure its not your internet connection, its obviously something else.

Your PC is dying. It can't cope with the game lul. Try lowering your settings. If it still persists, check for packet loss and contact your ISP

I'm not good at this game, its just that the rest of the server sucks~

The turret shakes do seem to be a lot more common than I recall prior to 1.0. Total loss tho I only got shortly after patch but not much since.

Shaking is typically a graphics glitch related to zoom level where the object is partway between two predrawn views and flicks between the two.  Log that as a graphics bug.

 

Losing control is related to your internet connection, when you  are getting packet loss the traffic is timing out and the client loses track of what the server is telling it to show.  When the timeout is reached then connection drops.  Go and read the thread on connectivity issues.

I am not denying the existence of Armoured Recovery Vehicles (ARVs), any organized modern military would obviously have them nearby (but in a separate unit, under the same brigade group) but these are merc's, so I'm not sure they would. I'm not even sure an ARV is meant to do a turret swap, but it would be all about the capacity of whatever crane they have and the competency of their techs (it's a pretty intensive task I hear). Especially considering the narrative we've been given, they don't sound like a modern well funded military.

Taps on the mods window ...... Anyone awake in there ?  Helloooooo .

To be fair , I did read it twice before I clicked .


Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

At first I thought it was a reply to some other thread.

 

It seemed like a well-thought out reply to an ARV forum. But...why make a spam bot for that purpose? I understand if someone makes a spam bot to help him find a Nigerian prince's treasure or drugs to upgrade you from an L/48 to an L/70, but why that?

I'm still of the opinion that it's not a spam bot... I think?

 

Anyway, to get back on topic. Have a replay so we can see what is going on?

Some quick googling shows us that the reply seems to come from this WoT Reddit Console Forum linked here:
https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldofTanksConsole/comments/8p1pbd/2_of_the_mercenary_tanks_arent_complete_bs/

The post is about 3 months old.

The reply was gibberish . What gives it away is the inserted words into the ops original post . They were linked . I was not going to click on them to find just where those links took you though . As stated . I did read it twice before I picked it up .

 

As for the ops post . We did have issues with tanks moving on there own some time ago . That was resolved . So as Wasa has stated lag would be the likely culprit .
