I need some help form someone who understands game mechanics better then I - because I can't wrap my mind around what happened at the end of this game.

Da fuck... It was like he wasn't even there, not even bounce or anything... Shots went through him and exploded behind him? I would seriously try to find him and see if he's got replay from his PoV.

Dont have a link to it, but there's a russian video on youtube with a bunch of replays of this happening (if you're interested, it was in the daily Q&A on FTR awhile back).  As far as I known its a very rare bug.

I had something very similar:  http://wotreplays.co...3-lorraine_40_t

 

Watch as I shoot through the JT, then do it again, and again, and again.  Oddly, once he moves back then I'm able to actually damage him.  Four shots while fully aimed with both of us sitting still.

It's client <-> server desync, I have experienced it on several occasions, even tonight in a TC. When it happens I exit out of the game and wait a few moments, then log back in. If you experience this issue or the server reticle not shooting where you aim, re-logging will work for that as well. I aimed at a M4 tonight that was tracked with AP from the flat square side at less than 20m and it hit the ground behind him, naturally he shot me with no issues. 

 

In the last two weeks I have been noticing it quite often, I had always assumed it was WG changing the dispersion. Simply logging out and back in clears it up for me, but YMMV.

So I submitted a ticket, for the lolz - was not disappointed: 

 

Greetings Commander,

Thank you for contacting our customer support. My name is Javier and I will do whatever is in my power to help you solve your issue.

As far as I could see in the replay, there was a Crusader SP and some of the effects might be due to its bullets coming from the other side of the map. I do not see any irregularities, but I thank you for your report, since it help us improve :)

Please, do not hesitate to contact us again should you have any questions or doubts.

Best Regards, 

Javier White

To be fair, ghost shells are were extremly rare prior to 8.8, like <0.1% rare...
