I put it down to packet loss the first day ......
Since last update at least one shot has not registered server side each game. Last game SIX fully aimed at lower plate shots just vanished. No dirt hit, no damage done, no tracer.

Anyone else?

I have had same problem last a few days. I was fully aimed and took shot, but the shot vanished.

I am still trying to work out if the game registers the hit and damage or bounce. 
I blindfire too much :P

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 .

Yep, for quite a few months now the exact same thing has been happening to me.  Just happened now so i thought I'd see if anyone else was having the same issue.  Its a clear shot, you fire, you watch the round go to the target but absolutely nothing is registered...you've lost a shell, but there's no damage, dust, nothing....its like a ghost shot.  Can get pretty frustrating when you're running low, game is tight, and you fail to kill a tank (he kills you first) because of this 'Invisible shell', very frustrating.

I have ghost shells in about 50% of my games sometimes multiple.  In my case I think its due to poor upload speed but not sure.  The game is also generally fairly laggy for me.

Yep. Every game at least 2 shells just disappear. Packet loss to HK is tragic atm.

Interesting that missing shots appear to count as hits but not pens.  My last 2 shots in a battle (last man standing for a change) in a  T-44-100 shooting gold.  First into the side of a Rev and next into the front of a 152k.  Both at close range at stationary targets and both just disappeared.  According the Tanks.gg not a hope that they could have bounced.

I suddenly developed a case of seeing no shell tracers from any tanks, just like that. No updates to either WOT or PC and yet the ONLY thing that allowed me to see them again was by using the 32 bit game version.

 

Something has to be amiss in WGing's programming. I did everything possible when still using the 64 bit version but nadda.

I had a beautiful shot for the side of a Jpgz E100, he sat there for me I fired and nothing no hit, no bounce total zip it was like I hadn't even fired and yet I did my platoon mate said and he was spectating asked where'd that shell go, my response was less cordial....
