the rocket and splash damage is an entirely different story. good luck if your rocket catches the edge of geometry.
its called, ping and lag, what you see is often completely different from what actually happened. Its a problem yes, but its not a problem with the hitbox.
How is that supposed to be a lag or ping if a player gets hit by a rocket in the air, bounces and accelerates while flying. You could see that i pushed him off the ledge hit a rocket and he got back in.

I've had A LOT of direct plasma hits registered as splash (you can tell easily: it produces purple impact mark instead of leaving hit spark), I've also had a hard time looking for an air rocket in a demo with QLDT - turned out I killed someone with splash... deepinside-midair-moment.dm_73
frs was unfortunate to do the same with a grenade: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zg9TnbbdboY - so he didn't even get splash out of it, rocket at least should do 85 damage in that situation.
Did this happen before cylinderscale 1.1 change?
I've fixed thread title. Moving to bug reports, too.
I confirm that the hitbox is crashed AS D:
