As said in the title, I like the indicator telling what type of damages you did, if you ricocheed or did not pen. 

 

I am surprised by the amount of module damage done, actually. It is very rare to do a 'bare'  shot, i.e. a shot only removing hp. 

 

I am also happy to see that many speculative/optimistic snapshot I take actually hit my targets,  even if they do no damage (I am playing with sound off). I am not as bad as I thought I was (that does not do more damage, but it heals my ego). 

 

The 'quite' in the title is because I think it will wear off and I will eventually remove the notifications. But all in all, a good idea.

Partially agree, like the indicated damage, absolutely hate the “track broken” that only stops the red tank for 2 microseconds, shoot him again and broken again fo 2 microseconds....HOW?

If I am tracked (broken) even with the auto fix I cannot move for at least 5 seconds, enough time for half the reds on the team to aim, shoot, and remove the majority of my health, if not all of it!

I want a track that can repeatedly repair in 2 microseconds on all my tanks just like the red ones!

I will be brave enough to guess that you do not have the replay

@Endtoast_LOCA......might have, just really need to look through them thoroughly!

But I would like to be that the replay doesn’t show this....

I like them as I too play with sound off mostly but for some reason, sometimes when I pen a shot, the indicator says ricochet or bounce but damage is done.
Don't have a replay yet but I'll record it

^sometimes you can bounce your shell off one part of the red tanks armour and it will pen another part and do damage, could be that

There is one in the last video by Meadsy, nearly at the end when the T54E1 is killed.
It seems to happen quite often.

That could happen sometimes but can't possibly happen when you shoot the sides of tank...physics disagrees

I’ve seen the ricochet and pen on same tank, hit mantlet and went down through armour on top of front of tank, replay long gone but will post if I ever see it again...

 

Co-incidentally Muffin did a video which proves you only can ricochet off one tank...

It’s interesting that people play without sound.  Messages I hate are:

 

“That’s gotta hurt!”     You come to learn that this means nothing much, but it still makes you think you have done something.

 

”Another one like that will finish him off!”    I think this must have been stopped a while ago because I have not heard it for some time.  It was annoying because another one, just like that, was never, ever enough..


Falling down? No, just passing quickly into an area of slower time.

I like the new damage indicator, it has kind of proven the sniper crew skill that increases chance of module damage. I seem to damage modules most of the time on this account, my re roll with 1200 battles does not do module damage any where near as much as skill not trained at all. Maybe it’s just RNG.
