This is a weird one. A couple of days ago a friend told me over comms that his Somua SM had refilled the entire clip during an intra-clip reload. Tonight the same thing happened to me in ranked battles. I had a full clip in my Somua SM and I unloaded 3 shells on an enemy heavy, the last of which killed him, so I had 2 shells remaining. When the intra-clip reload was done, I suddenly had a full magazine again and proceeded to blast another poor bugger back to the garage. I don't mind if my Somua acts like that from now on, but I would argue that the bug is FUBAR, especially in ranked battles.. I can just imagine the opponents counting the shells "1,2,3,4,5.. let's go, kill him!!" "wait, wot the foch?"


Anyone else experienced something similar? Is this bug only related to the Somua or other auto-loaders too? I haven't played all too much with auto-loaders, mainly just the Somua and the BC 25T and I've never noticed this happening before.

The other day in my Kranvagn I had 2 out of 4 shells in the drum, I fire one, then with one round remaining the drum began to reload from scratch.

Not the first time with auto loaders since the Italian line appeared.

Well I was certain a few times I've been clipped out by an auto loader that's already fire most of its clip.   


Seeing as this isn't the 1st post about the issue I guess it may just be a real game breaking issue.

World of tanks Auto lock edition,  because aiming shouldn't be a skill.

Cool....Now imagine that broken mechanic in the broken WT E100 and suddenly you got a broken game.

Thanks to xRoni7x for this awesome sig!

While it sucks that this is an issue I’m glad to know it actually exists. A few times this week I rushed autoloaders that I watched fire all the shots from their clip only to have them shoot me anyways. I thought I had just forgotten how to count or something. 

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 


He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

I have yet to have it happen.

Not saying it's not, just saying I'm jealous.

Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.
