In the past week I've seen 3 instances of high tier arty players intentionally killing themselves by shooting a wall/rock/ledge/building that they are parked against.  I'm only assuming this is to rob the other team of xp/credits for killing them.  I'm curious if anyone else has seen this recently?  I have only played for a month and half at this point so maybe this has occured for some time now and is quite normal in game.

haven't seen arti-cide but have seen arti-samurai charging when they know they are dead

they often get one on the way out.

what? and deny myself the pleasure of seeing my AP round deny the T10 of his free cheeseburger by smacking him in the jimmy before I die? the horror. Everyone gets a repair bill.

well I never really see one that kill themself  by shooting at the building when they're right next to it.

but talk about suicides, I actually went suicidal with M7 Priest before. I was in an open field, I'm spotted, and the Easy eight(M4A2E8) in heading straigh at me.

so I decide to charge forward and eventually ram him to death :3  (got my first Kamikaze award lulz).

I would think that they are trying to get to 10% health so that their adrenalin rush ability would kick in, but maybe they are just stupid.

My record stands at 3; one T-50-2, one E-75, and one Pershing. Fail defense was fail that match.

The shooting at a building to get your own splash damage is new to me, but I have seen my fair share of lower tier SPGs just take off hauling ass across the Malinovka field. Who knows?

I've seen similar occurrences to this, however it is very rare. When an arty is about to be shot, he/she will (sometimes) suicide by shooting something next to him and inflicting splash damage to himself. However, as I said earlier, it is extremely uncommon, and most arty players do not do this.
