If you don't know what is happening in this picture, then you're likely the guy doing it.

If you know what's happening in this picture, we need a way to prevent this. As far as i'm concerned, there is nothing more annoying or toxic.

I don't generally share bushes wityh other players like that, but I'm not exactly sure what you are referring to, but two things come to mind;

1. He nudges your tank every time something is spotted and he rotates his hull to aim in that direction

2. He's not completely covered by the bush and can get spotted, drawing in shells that can hit you if they miss him, even if you are not spotted yourself

From where our T-100LT  is I can farm the enemy. For the most part I won't get spotted unless I shoot something too close, which is my own doing, at which point I can retreat and then choose one of the two bushes to begin my farm again.

From where he is, he is going to get spotted. The front of his tank isn't covered at all by the bushes and it's obvious he doesn't know how camo works. He's going to draw ALOT of fire, likely getting me hit in cross-fire.

I'm not one to use sniper view unless I have to, so I caught the danger early and relocated. However he was very comfortable doing this and its likely he does this in other battles, in tanks with even less camo.

It's a dangerous tactic that will normally involve losing battles since team mates get shot at who aren't spotted and probably adds to the tidal waves of "cheater haxx" threads we see on the forum.

I tend to not treat such players as people, but as sheep.

 

I mean, instead of telling them to bugger off, I leave them to graze on the bush while I go find another one. :trollface:

We could ban red paint

 

Red paint attracts unsavoury types, red cars get more trouble than cars in other colours

The only way to prevent that is for you to back off and relocate to the line behind you can cover the same area equally well. There is no point sitting there getting upset about it and just waiting for it to happen when he will inevitably get spotted. 

 

Even if there was a huge shield bubble around you to prevent him from getting close to you, it won't prevent him from backing off and getting spotted outside that bubble... behind you.

Frankly, I would be happy he is at least trying to do something.

 

That beats most of my games today.

This was my first thought as well. A random teammate trying to do dmg is in and of itself above average some days. Well, it feels that way at least. 
going about it in a bad manner is not so strange. The amount of people who actually understands how the game works is a clear minority. 
Ive even seen relatively experienced streamers screaming about getting spotted while double-bushing, but in reality he was just sitting in a bush shooting. 
Most people dont want to learn. You can see that by the volume of idiots here on the forum blaming their bad results on people using aimbots etc. We all need to realise that there are things we dont master in order to get better at them.

It's equally irritating when a turreted tank takes a corner and doesn't allow the TD to get a firing position. You've got a turret, let the TD in and then hide behind him.

In this case tho there is clearly not enough room for two tanks in that spot. The TD is just being stupid at that point. There are much better positions he could have set up a little way back which would give him much better firing angles and room to move if he needed.

That's a main problem while playing a light or TD too.There is only one thing to do when this happens: relocate a.s.a.p.

This thread is closed because it is not constructive.

 

I understand your disappointment, but simply posting an image and pointing out the error of your ally because it is not well covered behind the bush is not a valid argument to open a thread on the forum.
