I was behind the bush more than 15m distance away as bush was not transparent... in the last 4-5 min of battle.

Watched the replay, and it's not as if there were many locations you could have been in. That player was almost surely blind firing, just like you did at the beginning of the game.

If the bush only counts as medium bush then its camo bonus is not good enough to hide a shooting heavy even with 15m distance. Also you kinda stood rather close to the edge of that bush, maybe your side was visible. But quickly accusing others as cheaters is obviously easier than actually thinking about the game mechanics for two minutes.

I find its usually down to 3 things.

 

1 they fire into that bush because its an obvious hiding spot and or they have nothing else to shoot at.

Maybe their sixth sense went off so they knew someone could see them

 

2 They are shooting at another tank and I am in the line of fire.

Its amazing how often my light tank or TD is in perfect cover and a heavy or medium pulls up alongside or worse behind me and starts firing.

 

3 Some other enemy tank with fantastic camo has spotted me, All I can see is the tank that just fired at me.

But the tank that actually spotted me is still hidden.

In all fairness, OP here is not accusing anyone of anything. He/she is asking for help in finding an explanation.

Ah! Then I stand corrected good Sir. I based my previous response on the thread title here and the actual post. Downloaded the replay but never actually paid any attention to the title there.

Well I guess it was blind fire. I did not have 6th sense. I did not meant he was hacking. I meant game is bugged. I always get shot at in behind bushes when I shouldn't.

And why shouldn't you get shot at behind bushes? You even blind fired yourself at the start of the game, why then is it so hard to accept others (on the other team) may do so as well?

never be amazed by the incredible ability of other players to screw you over every *** time.

It's worth remembering that being 15m behind a bush improves your camo by a lot but it doesn't make you invisible, especially when firing. With enough view range or through being close enough, the target will spot you despite your being 15m back. The only way to ensure you won't be spotted is to double bush.

Bushes are not solid, you know, shells fly through them, just saying.

I've got a lot of damage and/or kills by shooting obvious TD or LT spotting bushes, I mean, you shot twice without adjusting your position, he had pretty much enough time to aim his shot, now that the markers are more accurate than before, it should be easy to hit you.

Since you do not have sixth sense and therefore no way at all to know if you are spotted or not how have you decided that the explanation for you getting shot is the 'game is bugged' rather than the more obvious reason that you just got spotted and did not know it?
