Just had a game in my Jageroo, did just shy of 8k damage and lost (red team simply outplayed green team unfortunately and reds had a super uni who did 8k himself, cancelling me out). However, the moment in the clip in the link is what made me want to facepalm. I'd ran out of AP so HEAT ended up loaded, I fired it at the very low health T28 proto (420 pen on this shell) and it bounced... Argh!

 I hit the very well angled part of the frontal armour and it bounced. I should have loaded HE instead. Wrong ammo choices can be disastrous. 

 

Here's the result screen

 

Always a shame to lose after doing damage like that but it could be worse. Reds were simply the better team. I've done over 9k damage in this TD and lost before now. Bloody good game to the 4202 player. 

 

Or.. The T-28 survived not because I was unlucky and hit an auto bounce area, but because the game is rigged and that's also why I lost, and not because red team simply played better, right? :trollface:

That's a weird spot that always leads to that effect, so regardless of accuracy non-RNG bias or not, i call it a pretty unlucky shot.

GG though.

 

P.D: Taking a further look, tanks.gg calls an effective 391mm spot that makes ricochet anything. A really unlucky shot.


Some might say i'm not constructive enough... Too bad i'm actually a deconstructivist

GG, I've been there too with a 704 game where I managed 7,600 damage and 10 kills, yet lost. 14 of my allies couldn't scrounge up 5 kills...

My favorite part was an enemy E-75 with 6 kills complimented me and said I earned it more than he did, can't beat a compliment from an enemy that you killed and stole a medal from. :D


If I only had a Baneblade....

we did not see the game code, thereby we cannot call this heat shot unlucky.

maybe the accuracy of the shot is decreased to -25% if the shotted tank health pool is low)

good game ... but i'm just staring at the dude in the 263 who couldn't even get one pen ... everyone has a bad game from time to time ..... but honestly.

 

*edit* interesting ... 47.7% w/r, not even 4k games ... and playing tier 10 in an obj 263. Not exactly considered an TD line you immediately go for ..... hmmmnnnn.... sorry, just food for thought.

Don't think you would have won anyway based on the tanks that are left.

Nope those tanks played well too, but it should have been a win,. Part way through the game we had or should have been about to gain full map control and had the last couple of pockets of reds surrounded. Somehow green 183 killed itself though, and we had 5 TD vs the 2 Soviet mediums and the 5 green TDs failed despite the mediums being stuck in a corner with no room to maneuver. I was astounded at how quickly we lost the advantage. That 4202 player on red team played a large part in that though tbf. A group of greens went after him in the centre and he slaughtered them all.

We can, it was just awful luck. The shell hit it just hit the only tiny part it couldn't pen. Happens sometimes. I've shot a waffle with a 183 HESH before now, hit and done 0 damage. The HESH hit the very tip of the gun and the gun is that long that the splash didn't reach the rest of the tank. No code imho there just crap luck for me, amazing luck for them.
