So,

yesterday I had quite a nice last game of my session. Ut was a cliff game in tier9 patton. As game developed, there were only 3 tds and 1 arty remaining on enemy team. Since those tds didnt get spotted whole game, yet some of them had some kills, it was pretty obvious, where are they sitting. Come on, you already know which spots i mean, regardless of the spawn. So i tried couple of blindshots and i did luckily hit quite a lot of them. Right after the game ended, I was called a cheater by couple of those tds. I provided them a replay, but they still dont even try to understand, that it was not that hard to hit them.

 

replay for you: http://wotreplays.eu/site/5204035#cliff-fatoldquinn-m46_patton - the gameplay is not that good, there are some obvious mistakes and slow reactions, but the key part is close to the end.

 

Question is - do you have simillar experience? Do you meet people so stubborn, that you cant even explain your plays? Should we stop blindshooting, to protect their precious souls from getting hurt?

If you blind shot someone once.....you're doing your job correctly....if you hit them again, they're just stupid.

That's why I've turned off messages from people outside my friendlist...keeps the salt away.

 

It's not worth arguing with their level of intelligence.

Yes.

I was called a cheater too just because I landed some blindshots. I was also called a cheater because I managed to hit and penetrate an enemy tank from 300m range while I was moving at 50km/h. Lucky shot indeed, but it does happen sometimes… such shots probably surprise me more than the enemy.

 

People who complain about this are losers, prone to confirmation bias. They forget how many times the enemy missed them, they also ignore it when THEY land a shot like that. They not worth your time, they can't entertain the possibility that they may be wrong.

When you are this lucky its just normal for others to think you are a cheater, don't you think?


Honestly, from your talk, you actually sound like a cheater trying to justify your luck.

Blinds are cheating. Critical hits are cheating. Hell, sometimes just hitting a stationary tank close to you is cheating. I bet some of you even look at the minimap. Cheaters.

Not sure whether you are serious or not.

 

To answer your question: it might be normal, as most people prefer primitive explanations for extraordinary events.

 

It is a numbers game. If you take hundreds of difficult shots, you will eventually land a few of them, right?

High tier meds and some light tanks are more capable at landing shots like that than other tanks though. The last time I landed a shot like that I was driving my STB-1.

I had to inform one team that WOT comes with a built in hack called the minimap...

 

I wasn't called a hacker but I did manage to kill a tank that was taking cover behind a rock


 

Normally I don't upload anything but this was special.

I just love Pz IV H and maps like sand river or el halluf.

On these maps, I already scored kills from 550-600m away, one time on sand river using the derp, killed a tank that was about 10 meters below the ridge line. :trollface:

Whenever someone calls me a cheater for blindshooting them I say "Thanks!" since I know it is actually a compliment eventhough they did not mean it like that.

Oh, I get at least one of those PM's a day. Usually from the south spawn on Minsk firing from under the bridge towards the bushes on the north spawn hill. I've killed a few arties there early on. Nothing to worry about. Some spots have a TD or arty on it at least half the time. And you would be a fool not to try it. Get a ground impact you move on. Get nothing, you keep firing. Don't need mods to figure that part out.

He's probably serious, but he's also congenitally clueless, so I shouldn't pay it any attention.

been while since it happened but good case of obvious bush being obvious;

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

but yea if i got 1 euro for every time i got called cheater/hacker i would be making a living out of this, it just amazes me how one can think shooting a stationary target is a case of aimbot. yesterday i had a vk leo which i rushed in excelsior, he was about 50m away at most and i kept hitting him while he tried to run away in circles;

[name] (26-1-2020 16:52:21) [edited]noob cheater
[name] (26-1-2020 16:52:29) nice aiming
[name] (26-1-2020 16:52:40) reported

randoms never cease to amaze me how they could see certains things as cheating, but yea bunch of playerbase has the mentality "if im not spotted i cant get hit" which makes them insta cry cheats when they get blindshotted on

Yes, its cheating, the cheat is called using your brain.

And obviously, using your brain is cheating when the opposition does not.

You guys have all the fun. Today connected 2 blindshots with E100 on a FV4005 and he didn't send any cheater accusation.

My last one is getting months old, when I did my record of damage blocked in KV-4...

Am I that bad? :(
