Reading another topic where someone mentioned low tier derps one shotting people got me thinking ..I actually can't remember the last time I was one shotted, not since the Arty change . The last time before the change I remember being blind one shotted by an Arty when the counter had about 25 seconds on it and was streaking across a field unspotted just outside base. Boom... I was startled and confused for a second..I guess you could say I sheet myself . Taking obvious routes was a lesson learnt . I must have made that Arty players day .

 

Anyone else been one-shotted recently ,any funny stories or are they all salty hate filled memories?

Last time I was oneshot an FV4005 prammo'd my E50. Probably was an ammorack.

 

Last time I oneshot someone else was more recent, I was trying to get the 6k damage mission in my Jageroo, got that new Empire map thing, drove to where the heavies usually bandy about... met an IS7, put a prem shell in his hull and ammoracked the poor fellow. 2400 damage (if memory serves) :trollface:

 

Sadly that wasn't even the battle where I got the mission... :rolleyes:

I play quite alot of tier 5-6 lightly armoured tanks. I get 1-shotted often by higher tier arty and derp tanks.

When I used to play my Wolverine I remember that just vaporisingregularly , same with the T67 . Moved up a tier or two recently and it doesn't seem to happen. Maybe I've learned stuff and avoid arty better or maybe they just don't one shot much and I got lucky .

 

The Fv4005 can be a pain but its rare I blunder into them any more. As I got a bit  better I started seeing them as free damage as they seem to be played infrequently by most people and they put themselves into bad situations where they get farmed  .When you get a good player in one  though they are a menace .  Whats worrying for me is I'm struggling through the Conway to get one myself , and I don't think I'll play it enough to get good with it . If it's like the Conway with me its one  mega game, 2 terrible ones then I might be better sticking to my AMX 105 in tier 10.

 

 

But yeah, Arty PVE only could be funny . 15 Arty vs 15 bot Fv4005's :)

Just had a battle were an ally hellcat got one-shot by arta.

Fair and balanced, right?

 

And I remember being one-shot several times the past half-year while grinding the Italian and Siemka tank.

By arty? It's been a while. But my Borsig got smacked by a T92 once after the arty change. Tho that was over a year ago iirc. But besides that... I have to really think then. As even KV-2's and 183 HESH don't always get you either tbh.

I guess you don't play that often against my FV4005 or Cruiser II.

 

With FV i have games without any 1 shot kills and then games when i kill at least 4 tanks in 4 shots. So FV is not reliable enough to get it each game such 1 shot kills but it's still an awesome feeling when they happen.

 

With Cruiser II i kill with 1 shot every single game. Even if it's a loss whoever appears in front of my gun just disappears. Awesome feeling and Cruiser II gives me a steady flow of endorphins:trollface:

Occasionally happens in my open top TD's (eg: Hellcat or T25/2) when bottom Tier (3/5/7) and Arty is top Tier.

I was in my 705a earlier this morning and some dude one shotted me, he was in a Cearn AX, had me wondering where the 705's ammo rack is?

 

 

I would say well done that guy.

Last time I got oneshotted in my KV-2 by another KV-2 few days ago. I shot first but RNG said no...

Last time I oneshotted someone was 2 days ago. A pesky T-34-85M was goldspamming my SU-152 so, as a real dinger, I decided to return the favour in the form of a 720+ damage roll HEAT shell. :trollface:

I was doing Coalition 4/279 up to yesterday, loaded up HE in my Foch155, and popped a Bat Chat for 1053 HP with 1st shot, and 747 for the kill(Jumbo) 5 seconds later (he was tracked from 1st shot, and probably reporting me for cheating after the 1053 KAFLUEY!!!!!)

BTW, Foch155 with HE is the best choice for all coalition missions that require crits and crew dmg.

On my secondary account last week KV2 derped a HE Shell into the side of a full health T-34-85M - Boom 750 HP gone. Obviously it was a snap shot at 300m plus - had it been closer and I'd aimed it wouldn't have connected
