Oh well... The T-10 at the top of the picture fired an AP shell, bounced on the side of Mäuschen, and somehow penetrated my well-angled Super Conq. Thought I was safe though (๑• . •๑)

Spoiler

Not triggered, just considering it as a fun thing that happened to me.

RNGesus is true :D Anyone met the same situation before?

Never. It's nice though that someone can take it with humor.

I've done it once, a long time ago. Bounced off a Jageroo and killed the arty next to him. IIRC it was on the Northwest map.

 

The only other time i've seen it is on the WG RNG youtube videos.

I killed a unspotted Type 64 by bouncing off another tank at about 400m on Fishermans. He was camping in the TD corner though so deserved

Shot an IS (tier7) in the face with my T95, bounced !?! and hit the side of an O-NI for 800+. Lucky b@stard...

Had a similar thing, my Schwarzpanzer 58 shot a TVP VTU and somehow bounced into another tank doing damage. The funny thing is the in game voices said first 'that one bounced' and then 'great shot' and i remember being all confused about what just happened.
I also bounced HEAT off an IS7's engine deck and into the side of an E50M with my T49! 

Have replays for both, but are old versions...
The worst one regarding RNG was in a WG clip some years ago, an arty firing AP bounced off a KV3 turret into another tank. Imagine that.

Hitting Tiger ammoracking him, and flying turret hits a very low HP LT passing by, killing him too...

Must be hax! But I've seen it with my own eyes... through my golden filtered expensive monocle!

Never managed one shot like that in all my games, 

best thing so far is when I shot someone spotted, only to kill an unspotted tank in front of him.

Not seen a bouncing shot kill another but I have had an equally bizarre situation.  I cant remember which map it was anymore, but it was an end game and I was in a Borsig and had an O-Ni in my sights, with a teammate Hellcat harassing him by side hugging on the opposite side. Just as I let rip at the O-Ni's turret, another teammate ammo-racked him and his turret flew up and my shell went straight through the now empty space and took out the Hellact:(.

 

He was surprisingly good about it in chat though.


 

Cheers

Cheers, never done an ammo rack double kill b4, but my Lowe once got ammo racked and looked like a rear-mounted turret vk 7201

At least you laughed.  When I "played for a shot like that".  I got accused of cheating and a veiled death threat.

May be I did something like this once... 

Sure one time I bounced a shot off of my ally HT and msgically hit and penned the tank I was aimig to!

Those RNG cases are ridicously funny! :teethhappy:
