Seems that after the previous update HE got tweeked. I don't remember many times doing zero damage with HE in the past. Now it is often. If a player is stuck fighting or assisting against a tank two tiers up and even prammo is useless, I should be able to break a track or score 20hp with HE. SOMETHING! Anyone else notice this happening too often?

I don't always use HE rounds..

 

But when I do.. I do see some damage. Stay thirsty my friends!

 

 

LOL! Anyways, I do use some HE rounds. I haven't seen 0 yet. I see some numbers show up. Are you hitting the right spots? I know you should at least track a tank's track if you can't splash damage something.

I know that non penetrating HESH rounds do 700 damage to my Maus, but in my light tank they still do the same amount of damage. How does HESH work. Does it ignore armor?

HE damage mechanics have not been changed at all.

It certainly ignores balance. So why not.

Missed this first time around. HE, HESH, HEP, and Premium HE all have the exact same non-penetration damage mechanics (average damage halved then further reduced by spaced armor/armor thickness/distance from point of impact). HESH and HEP just have a higher than average penetration value (this has no affect on non-penetrating hits) and Premium HE tends to have a large blast radius.

 

Hope this clears some things up.

Most recently hit the side of a black prince twice from 500m with the 60g ft. Forgive me I'm at work I don't remember the actual gun. Not the last package. But I've had three or four recent games where I saw the shell hit the tank and not cause damage.  Maybe just a run of bad luck. Thanks guys

I see, thank you.

 

 

Still annoying how they can just HESH me to death though.

My HESH only seems to splash a Maus for like 400. Mine must be broken.
