View Full Version : Tank Attack bug?
22nd Aug 06, 2:19 PM
Not sure if this is a little problem or not... May not even count as a bug, but it's rather annoying. Occasionally when directing a tank to attack a target, the tank will suddenly blitz the target until it rams it, firing the entire way, and the only way for me to stop the advance is to click furiously behind the advancing tank. It's rather annoying in a large battle where lines have formed for my tank to just drive off into the enemy formation and expose its rear armor to units in their ranks.
Is this some sort of function I'm unaware of? Or is it a problem with the attack order for a tank?

I have this happen all the time with Panthers and M10s. Its especially annoying when they get inbetween the target and other allied units and get hit by friendly units.

I had that happen last night... My own tank was drilled in its rear armor by my own force.
It does seem to happen more often with German vehicles than US, but I've seen it with Shermans as well.
Also I'm finding there are slight problems with tank pathfinding... when two are together and are told to change direction they almost always get caught on one another... neither one uses reverse, and the both try to turn in the same direction.
I know people will say I should micro each tank in reverse to where I want, but I think that's kind of ridiculous.

I confirm this. Often a tank ordered to shoot at a target will charge in and ram it, whether the target is infantry or tanks, and you can't control it's movement in any way until it drives into it's target(you can aim at other targets on the way, but the tank's still locked on it's suicide course until it finishes it). This happens equally often with both sides for me. Tank AI is very glitchy overall, but this bug hurts way too much to go overlooked :|

yeah just the other day i was playing as axis and i had a tank that just went mad and ran itself into the allies base, it was REALLY convenient but still it was kinda like "huh, how bout that...well go that guy!"

Is this going to be addressed? The tank blitz bug combined with the pathfinding difficulties account for a huge percentage of my tank damage/deaths in most games... without those problems i dont think I'd have as tough a time surviving certain heated battles...
