Cannot hit middle tile of a 3 tile long bridge with catapult

I've tried to cata down a 3 tiles long bridge. It was working fine on the two ends, they popped quite as easily as with the old cata system.

It is very impossible to hit the middle tile, it always just hitting an item (the shards already thrown there). Checked with tweaking winching, position, orientation and angle, no success at all. Visually the rocks pass the correct bridge tile but never ever hits in about 50 tries, the other two tiles destroyed in less shots than that total.

Also I've noticed that shards take around 3 dmg now on each shot, is it intended?

EDIT: quite a pain, the 60ql bridge tile takes only about 0.7 dmg destorying it with a 90ql large maul.

I had a 1x4 wood bridge and took out 2 on one the end, 1 on the other from the west end of the bridge, the 3rd in could land the shots on the tile no problem, they piled up below but was no way to hit the bridge itself. Did this from several ranges back, shot it from the east side as well as lined up shots from the south into the bridge. Wanted the bridge gone or I would of done a ticket, only way was to bash the last tile. I also tried various angles, but did not seem to make a difference other than the range needed to hit the same spot.

 

If you are not in a rush I would do a support ticket for someone like budda to try and hit the sucker.

 

Catapult shots now damage objects, so if you have a pile of shards on the ground they get hit by the shots as well.

Yes the pile is getting the hit under the bridge so I'm firing to the correct tile. I've tried to shoot it from sideways as well, same results.

I'll do a test on another bridge trying to hit the adjacent tile while the cata is on the same bridge (if that is at all possible with high firing angle) and see if the issue is something like the "you need to be on the same bridge" messages.

Tried with dragging the cata on the bridge, 1 tile range with 80 degrees, cannot hit the bridge. The stones simply fall through.

Will get a test scenario set up to reproduce.  If anyone has any supporting information, please do post as I'm the worse catapulter in the history of the world, this one and every other one.

I see the same, cannot hit middle bridge sections with catapult, like Jaz seeing the shards visibly pass through the bridge and pile up on tiles below the bridge without any damage to bridge.

 

@Alectrys, there is currently a bridge on Xanadu close to my deed where this can be observed, we've started to bash it now, but plenty of sections left for catapult test shots. :)

If you want I can set up a bridge on test and see if I can encounter the same problem, then leave a catapult set up where you just need to load and fire.
