I've seen in the in game chat people posting "You're blocking my shot" and I wanted to know how you do this as I don't see it in the list of commands when I press "Z" and use the mouse

Its a mod - auto chat message when you click LKM and there is teammate on your fire line.

It's a very annoying mod. Please don't use it yourself.

It's never "their" shot.  I am pretty sure their tank has an engine and tracks. or sometimes wheels

Why is it annoying? i rather get a chatmessage then getting shot by a teammate in the back.

Me too and I always report them for spam (well, inappropriate chat since that's the nearest option).

If you want someone to move out of the way of your shot then use the built in fall back command.  That way it only gets sent to the person who is in your way instead of spamming everyone's chat with your drivel.  Also the built in commands get translated, the spam mod ones don't.

where does one get this mod, assuming of course that it is legal... i think it is of value to me as i have had several people drive in front of my tank as i was firing and then they start crying about team killing, blah blah blah....seriously who in thier right mind drives in front of the gun barrel, i always make an effort to go around a team mate on the opposite side.

Said mod is indeed legal, it also blocks the user from inflicting any actual team damage, removing his capacity to shoot team mates entirely.

 

You can also get the mod without the chat message.

 

It's why I disabled in-game chat entirely. 'You're blocking my shot!' ; 'X artillery hit me and is now reloading. Y position.' and finally 'X artillery hit me and is now reloading for 23 seconds.'.

 

The mod is called 'SafeShot' and for the better part of 5 years it has served no other purpose other than to annoy me endlessly. In the first two years of my in-game career it also made me reinstall the game a couple of times because I could not, as a matter of fact shoot team mates. Which proved to be quite detrimental when some users did require getting shot and I never found any actual use for the modification since as an ex professional FPS player I could manage to not shoot my own team mates just fine.

Yes, it does block you from shooting blue players.

The mod won't stop that, it will just stop you shooting them which is the only real deterrent to them driving in your way to start with.

The safeshot mod I tried out a few years ago was annoying and also fairly useless in its aim.

I still managed to shoot a friendly tank once and also was unable to shoot an enemy tank quite a few times.

 

Assuming it works the same way now here is the problem.

There is a delay before the mod acts so while you cannot deliberately take aim and fire at a friendly tank, if one drives in front of you as you fire the mod fails to prevent that shot.

So it fails to stop accidental shootings.

 

The other problem comes when you are trying to shoot an enemy around a friendly.

If any part of your retical touches the friendly tank it stopped you firing.

Such shots can be risky but when you are certain you can do it successfully but the mod prevents it then that is frustrating.

 

Try it out if it works for you then great.

If you definitely need to shoot an ally, press the Alt button and shoot until you go to the ban.

OK, so basically you're all saying just keep shooting idiots that drive in front of your tank as you press fire...got it.

 

i would just like to add that i don't make a habit of shooting team mates but god knows there are plenty of them that could do with it!

You could also try to develop your spatial awareness instead of aquiring a spam mod. Mistakes do happen from time to time and I wouldn't worry too much about them. But if you manage to get in these situations frequently there is good reason to check in the mirror also. Are you positioning yourself in a way where it is natural for teammates to drive in front of you in order to engage the enemy?

If I drive in front of a friendly its as much my fault as his if I catch a shell.

 

If I can I either pass them from behind or wait till they fire then drive in front of the gun.

It does not remove the ability to do team damage, it only makes it harder for them to do so, as people can still drive into a shot they took and thereby damage them.

what it actually means is "hey you, don't you realise this is my game, and you are stopping me from getting more damage to pump up my life-defining stats. move now please and get out of my game"
