Playing on cliffs, I was in my FV215b heavy with 75% health, flanked around the lighthouse and ended up getting in a cqb engagement with a 183, he shot an missed.  I tried to get behind him so I can get away from that nasty cannon, but just didn't have the speed to do it.  Kept his front to me the whole time, just counting down the seconds to get blasted, when I thought to myself, maybe I should just face hug him and pin him against the mountain so he can't go anywhere. In my book that's just as good as a kill, taking someone out of action, got to help my team out somehow.

 

 End up pushing up vertical up the hill; at that point I was waiting on my impending death, then BOOM!!! Right in my face.  He one-shotted himself!!!  Ant I lived!! Best frickin thing ever.  Wasn't  pretty with 180 hp left, busted gun, tracked, engine broke and one of my crew mates dead. Guessing he was using one of those HESH rounds or something, not sure which ammo does that kind of damage for the 183.  Well worth it. Did end out getting shot by another tank shortly after but I didn't care. Epic fail for him, win for me!!

 

Really wish I grabbed a picture, to busy laughing and already went back to garage.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL I love it when the Death Star fails. I don't know how but I bounced a Death Star round of the Gun mantle of my Centurion 7/1. I know the 7/1's mantle is bouncy but that is just OP. I fully expected to die and instead he died because I took advantage of his reload to pound hm with a bunch of shots and I later found out that I had killed his loader and destroy his ammo rack and gun after he messaged me after the match with a GG. with a dead loader and destroyed ammo rack his reload must have been horrendous. Probobly the luckiest bounce I have ever had!!!

what surprised you? Because i 183 cannot kill itself from full health in one shot simply from splash damage. IDC what you say, that is impossible and your lying if you say it actually happened.

Well technically he never said it was full health. You only assumed it was.

When you assume you make an [edited]out of you and me.

He may have been hit from another tank at the same time as splashing himself.

 

I had a 183 try and take on my 7/1 one time on Fisherman's bay ,whilst I hid behind behind a rock in the 'gully' on the far left. It was just me and him left on that side and he naively tried to flank me. I've no idea what he thought he was doing. I just nipped behind the other side of the rock and got behind him, then got a bit lucky in the ensuing tussle of trying to avoid his gun and circling him, blew him up eventually.

No!!! What surprised me was the Death Star bouncing off the mantle of the Centurion 7/1

He might have loaded up a regular HE round (iirc, the death star has that option as well) in which case the title of this thread is very much justified  :blinky:

Then again...I think HESH rounds still have a splash damage radius if they do not pen the target...could be wrong though.

Has it ever been off? Didnt know that. If friendly arty can splash you, why not yourself? Perhaps it is not considered "self-splash" if it splashes off an enemy tank? Just theories of course.

Friendly Arty can't splash you Friendly fire has been off for the last 3 or 4 months. you will only get blamed for friendly fire if you hold a tank under water or push it of a cliff. However you can still kill you self with your own splash.

Has it really been that long since last I had a friendly arty player troll his team mates? Seems like yesterday....too bad training rooms aren't available in the 360 version.

 Might have turned it off post-update, whether it is still on IDK.  This happened back in June.  Watched a friend get the Lucky medal a few weeks ago when an arty killed himself shooting a rock to avoid being the last killed. Can't get lucky anymore because FF is off (apparently that is the only way). If anyone has a death star or arty I challenge them to try it out.

 

As for the rest, the 183's barrel was pushed right up on my front end as I was pushing him so he would have gotten the full splash I assume. What I can't remember is if he was full health or slightly under to answer someone's comment about not one-shotting himself, but I think he was.
