How is it possible to get hit by arty behind that mountain? Is the grille using an illegal mod?

He was shooting from the other side off the mountain.

He hit you because you were not as safe as you thought. There are no cheats to shoot through mountains.

Which mountain? 

Have you a replay or a screenshot?

I usually see a hack where enemy uses atomic bomb to blow up my entire team under 2min from beginning of the game... 

I guess you have some replays for your claims ?

Here you have a better screenshot:

 

I tried to upload the replay but got this message: Error You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file

 

As you can see i was hugging the mountain but still got hit. I know the Grille has a great arc but this looks to me an impossible shot

Because you have to upload it on this site sir! Then send the link here!

Login there and upload it by pressing on "upload replay" 

Then you choose your replay and give it a name, when you finish, you copy & paste it here(forum). 

Done. :)

No problem at all, always use that site for uploading replays for proving anything.  Or even to upload your good battles. 

Also it's a good site tolearn from. You can download the replays of the tank that you like and learn from other players mistakes. :) 

Cheers!

Well, for what it's worth:

 

The Grille has a range limit of 800m and like all arties near the limit the shells come down pretty steep. And there is a bit of a dent in that rock formation just right where you stood, and the rocks don't rise particularly vertical in that area to begin with.

wrong, some years ago there was a particular mod, obviously illegal, that allowed arty players to be able to shoot over the hills

I don't know if it's still possible

anyway this is the video

My guess is, other than luck was on the side of the grille, there was just enough of a corner of your tank showing and he splashed you. You only had 7 hp left at that point so it would not have needed a direct hit, just a very close one.

I remember this mod, luckily it got removed by  reducing/changing the max travel distance (was 10.000m) of Arty he shells.

 

Was still funny to blast yourself whit your own shell away by leading your own indicator to your tank in training rooms (Of course whit regular Arty mode).

Didn't watch the video yet but the picture says a lot already, for example how to try such a vertical trickshot legally.

What Orkbert said. 

Grill can't shoot across the map as the shell is too slow. At the edge of the fire range the shell came down almost vertically. He basically drived up to a position where you were exactly on the fire range edge and got you even behind a rock like that. Many arty can do that, so pay attention at wich enemy arty you get. :)

Is this really true? When you are at the edge of your arty fire range your shell will drop down vertically?

 

I am also playing the Grille which has a great arc. But i am pretty sure that i cant hit a tank which is face hugging that mountain. But i will try it out again...:amazed:

 

Good to know that that illegal arty mod doesn't exist anymore. I was indeed thinking about that. :hiding:

Yes it can hit you vertically, but it must be on your firing range limit, because that'll be the highest angel of the gun's elevation, so the shell flys so high in the sky and then it falls down at some point to reach the target, then, at the last moments it'll land vertically.  

It's all about distance and angles.

Yes, the shell will fall almost vertically (80-85 degrees). This means you can reliably hit behind natural covers, that have a round top. A building is instead harder to bypass because of the perfectly vertical shape, but you can manage to hit even behind small buildings if the tank is big enough compared to the cover.

 

Or you can try to pen engine decks. I managed to do so on a SU-100M1 that was "camping" the frontline on Steppes.

The possibility of using the firing range

edge to have vertical falling arta shells.

For 7 damage he doesn't even need a direct hit.
