Hi!

Last two hours I did 3 friendly hits with my ScorpG. I haven't done this much team damage in two MONTHS. :ohmy:

 

The first was me aiming at commander turret of an AMX-44 (nothing else visible) The very moment I fired, a friendly O-I get in front of me.

The second was Ensk, me leading my aim through bushes at moving FV4202 some 150 meters away and the moment I fired I caught a friendly Object 704 in the crosshair.

The third was Fiery Salient. Aiming at the hill where our VK 30.02 (D) was spotting in the lower ground between two summits at opponents' heavies peeking over the ridge. I fired at KV-3's turret and VK 30.02 (D) decided it needs better view and moved in the shell trajectory.

 

Enough bad luck for today. I don't want to turn blue. :( Goodnight.

 

BR,  Iztok

atleast you decided to quit while your ahead

 

and accidents happen, had that enough.. usually typing a short sentence saying sorry is enough for them not to shoot back, and some realise they were the one's at fault by pulling up when they knew you were helping them...


 

but atleast you didn't get an unnecessary ban :bajan:

Oh, I did apologize each time, but the "capry" I wrote instead of "sorry" was probably rather intelligible. ;)

Next time try 'covfefe', it should cover every contingency. :P

Accidents happen, congrats on not turning blue. Staying 'normal' means you're not a butt, or the shots were actually accidental. From experience, both things actually matter. :P

It has nothing to do with luck, it's just how it goes some times. In 90% of cases it's a mixture of both the shooter and the recipient needing to show a little more awareness to their teammates but it's hard to do some times. When I am sniping a distant target, I am fully focused on the tiny distant tanks weak spot, that is all I'm am looking at and so it's genuinely a surprise when teammate decides to pull across and flood my entire view with his tank just as I have pulled the trigger.. is this my fault? when a teammate decides to not take stock of the gun he driving across? most the time there is just enough to abort the shot but honestly if you walk through a mine field and step on a mine why get upset like you didn't know there was a strong chance that was going to happen? 

All sniper tanks and tanks with derp guns just need to be considerate before they pull the trigger and players in general need to take stock of their teammates engaged in combat before they go rumbling across what is a live shooting gallery.. at least don't get all pissy when you get shot like the other guy was at fault

And that doesn't define luck (or rather bad luck)?

maybe so, but a forum such as this doesn't generally get good English does it? seems like a weak troll attempt

Or maybe his eyes cried reading such poor grammar. I'm sure you think it was trolling.

its not that bad, there is far worse on this forum filled with people that aren't even native English, its a small thing they pointed out that isn't even worth the time to point out

some posts barely have any capitals, don't have any indentations for paragraphs, or even comma's or full stops to separate sentences, and yet I don't see the other poster posting about that to them


 

but what do I know? im just some idiot forum reader with nothing better to do

The funny part is that you are more critic to those that aren't native speakers, yet think it's perfectly fine for the native speakers to do it. How remarkable.

So defensive. I gave you a nice tip that may become useful in the future. If you are British then its even more important that you respect The Queen an your, quite interesting and worldwide, language.

I always thank people that teach me grammar. Relax. Knowledge doesn't hurt if you don't resist.

you mean you couldn't be bothered to type anything on topic, and decided to troll someone on a forum where perfectly spelt English isn't a requirement? if this was a forum about the next English dictionary, then your "advice" wouldn't be out of place, however here, its just a very bad troll attempt... I r8 0/8

im not being a critic, if you bothered to read my post (which you obviously couldn't be bothered) is it a crime to point out the blatantly obvious thing of not everyone can type perfect English, or even cares to on a forum?

 

how about you go back to the topic at hand rather than showing your less than stellar respect for others

Topic? Hardly anything worth discussing, really. Risky shots hitting allies are not a symptom of bad luck.

 

And of course I read your post, and it was ironic you pointing out mistakes while doing them yourself. Not capitalizing sentences, no full stops. failing to write the plural of comma, not using apostrophes...

If it was someone with broken English, you'd jump the pointing finger wagon, but if it's you, naaa, it's all about "dynamic n modern English coz we gotta save on those characters and we then got time to spare coz we write ur and not you're".

 

It's just pathetic seeing native speakers writing their own language worse than foreigners do, but if you think that's ok, who am I to say otherwise.
