Proof of my uncredited kill! No friendly damage or team kill either...
Attached File   shot_040.jpg   402.28K

::EDIT:: Ignore me circling the player who destroyed me in the attached pic (Brainfart). My kill was noted in bottom right of the screen in Gold lettering at the time of my shot. Kills do not add up on our side at the end of the match. Logical and valid responses explain what could have happened rather than me killing the opponent, however I will stick to my guns on this (pun intended).  :Smile-izmena:

Fail. Ricochets count as hits on target. Of course you don't do damage with ricochets..And what you circled was WHAT YOU WERE DESTROYED BY. How did you make it to SU-152 and not know that?

And when you hit a tank without causing damage (ie. that one bounced!), it counts as a hit but will not show up on the damage list.

In his defense (and I'm really struggling), the wording of some of the screens is just a smidgeon misleading at times.  Like the gold for experience issue that pops up here from time to time.   It really should say Destroyed By, because it otherwise does convey YOU destroyed it, so I understand his misunderstanding.  But then again, with over a thousand battles under your belt...  :Smile_harp:

Hmm, well I am a little embarrassed I rushed this and circled "killed by", as I killed a t-34 not a KV ( I swear I am only slightly mentally challenged) lol. However, I did kill the player with my 1 shot and if you counted up the "kills" on my side it doesn't add up to 15 and the victory says all tanks destroyed ;)

If someone leaves the match early it wont be in the list of killed, therefore there are not 15 tanks total left in the match at the end.

True and same for if someone teamkilled on their side I think, but I promise this is not the case. I know my initial post doesn't help lend me credibility but I tells ya the truth!

Really? A -1 rep?

I was honestly trying to be helpful with this comment - sorry if I offended someone. Please don't take it out on me that the game allows for bounced shots without inflicting any damage. :) But it can happen, and would be a valid explanation of what might have happened here, given the information that we have...

Another attempt to be helpful: are you sure that you didn't bounce the shot a millisecond before a teammate wiped the guy off the map? I've done that before and thought I got the kill, only to realize (by looking at the bottom right where it shows who killed the guy) that it was a teammate.

First just want to let you know Bronco330 that the -rep wasn't me. I appreciate the feedback, even the ones who rightly called me out on my brainfart. I am 99.99% sure the kill was registered to me in gold text along the bottom right of the screen at the time. I came over a hill and took out the T-34 with a broad side shot just as a KV came up along the bottom of the same hill and hit my broadside with his Derp gun. Unfortunately this comes down to my word only (which has been questioned lately, lol), unless a Dev looks at the game logs. Of course they have better things to do, so I suppose we will never know the truth  :Smile_honoring:

Also, since I have a self-deprecating type of humor - I was a beta-tester and have closer to probably 5000+ battles! lol...  :Smile-hiding:
Thanks for trying to help though!  ;)

Well, I'll believe you I guess. :) Glitches happen. If this was a frequent occurrence I'd be worried, but it seems isolated so... better luck next time!
