Isn't it always thus in World of Tanks? Person on your team doing things right, great. Person on the enemy team doing things right, must be a cheater. Person on your team doing things wrong, sign of the apocalypse. Person on the enemy team doing things wrong, yay cannon fodder. Unlikely RNG in your favour, working as intended. Unlikely RNG in the enemy's favour, game's rigged. Etc. etc..

This happened to me once:

 

 

...and I was like... stunned for a while.

Because usually, you are getting nice garage chat bombs like "Die you fkn cancer clicker noob" from deep red 0 dmg enemy bushwanker you had killed, while you being in top 3 xp in your team.

If arty kills something I request fire upon, or what I am proxy spotting, I always reply with an affirmative. Nice to see compliments being given though. GG

If you're going to let rip on them when they mess up, it's only fair to compliment them for a good job. It's about the balance.

Very unrealistic. Arties would never waste a shell on the Tigers I know.

Two things that I'd like to point out:

 

1. First of all, I honestly doubt that an artillery shell caused a Tiger II to flip up-side-down. Actually, we can't even confirm that it's a Tiger II, we can't confirm that it was due to artillery, and we can't even confirm that the picture is actually real and not Photoshopped. While artillery shells are very lethal against soft targets like infantry, most artillery shells do not deliver enough explosive force to make that possible. Maybe a bomber could have done that, but not artillery.

 

2. Secondly, if we make the assumption that it actually is a Tiger II and it got flipped by an artillery shell. I hope you realise that this artillery did not "target" this Tiger II specifically? Are you aware of how long it takes for a firing request to arrive? First forward observers need to determine the coordinates of the barrage, then they need to send it to the artillery firing command, they in turn needs to coordinate a group of guns, and then they need to adjust their guns for the new coordinates. Finally the shell has to fly all the way to the target, which takes much longer than in WoT because fighting distances in WoT are compressed. When all this has happened, that Tiger II will not even be close to where it was originally. And on top of that, small factors like wind, humidity, the shell itself, will cause the shell to not land exactly where it should land.

 

In short, we don't know what tank it actually is, we don't know what actually happened and we don't even know if it's real. On top of that, fact still remains that the way artillery works in WoT is completely unrealistic. Artillery was not used directly against individual tanks, but rather a group of guns combined into a battery fired a barrage into an area. Point is, artillery doesn't shoot at targets, it shoots at locations.

 

And before anyone say it, just because WoT is an arcade game doesn't mean that it has to be unrealistic. Actually, being an arcade game means that the game has simplified controls and that the gameplay is easy to understand, not that it has to be unrealistic.
