Here's an idea for a Perk that would be fun in a TD or Arty.  Like all ideas I'm sure it's not new so please feel free to flame me.

*this idea is totally non-realistic and probably terrible but what the heck.

How about a Bomb / self destruct perk?  Here's who you use it.

You are in a TD, Arty, or even a low mobility Heavy Tanks and an enemy has you tracked and is alongside or facehugging you,  you are getting low on HP and you are definitely going to die soon.  Having given up hope of survival you decide to take the enemy with you and click the Bomb icon.

BOOM!  your tank blows up like a 500 pound bomb and takes any other nearby tank with it.  Ah sweet revenge!

I know it's totally unrealistic but so is shooting an enemy in a facehug when your barrels reach well beyond your enemy.

You do realize you can push off attackers?

Your response is boring.  Go play in your sandbox

Not if you're tracked.  That's not really the point anyway

I've actually always wanted to have a selfdestruct option for my tank.

Make it be like a spg's shot explosion.

Who cares if it's silly?

Interesting... I'm sure it wouldn't turn into a preferred troll mechanism for team damage.

What is the point then? bad poasting? No this isn't a realistic simulator but it is a realistic arcade game.

This idea gave me cancer

the point is that you are going to die anyway and this allow you to take the enemy with you.

What is poasting anyway?

Sorry to hear about your cancer, i hope it is not in your balls

I actually self-destructed in my SPG once.
I moved forward in overhead view to level the tracks, all the while targeting the enemy (so wasn't watching where I was)..
I ran into the side of a dead tank right as I leveled and shot as soon as the recticle closed.
BOOM. Shell hit dead tank at end of barrel. One-shot splash kill of myself.
Laughed so hard at my noob move I almost peed myself.

SO your basically saying remove all the shells from our ammo rack and load it with a large explosive self detonating bomb?

*facepalm*

No.  I didn't say anything about messing with the ammo rack.  The bomb could be the ammo rack, just blow up all the shells at once, or put the bomb anywhere else.
You're never gonna get your palm out of your face if you keep reading stuff into people's posts.

LOL, folks would start suiciding for fun :)  Heh.

<Hummel sprints off after match starts, drives right into the middle of the enemy vehicles ~BOOM~>  Yeah that would go over well.

*self destruct as kv-2*
this sounds good... even when will never happen, a Suicide-Sacrifice Button whould be amaizing, it will increase the number of useless people around, example suiciding at the start .__.

It would be realistic, setting off the ammo and fuel should produce a pretty big bad explosion.

I just think it's an asshole thing to do. Just take death like a tank.

Good point.  Perhaps make the Perk only available once you have less than 20% of your HP left.  Just to keep the Trolling and Suicides to a minimum.

NO

This is not the same.  In COD you drop a grenade once you are killed.  In this case you kill yourself.  There is a difference.  Plus this is not COD.

NO

not even near, martydom is a nade you drop when you die, meanwhile this would be about Suicide to deal damage.
