So this is the first time this has happened to me...and it's happened three times in a row to me (plus in one game, the culprit killed another TK arty the same way)

Basically, Nightmare_luna parks near the front of ally artillery, and waits for them to take their first shot.  Arty is heads-down and doesn't notice this, fires, and ...dies.  instantly.  While doing TK damage to Nightmare_luna.

 

He gets allied damage credits every time...and TKs without taking a penalty/ban.

So ... somebody parks in front of your arty because he wants to take the shell from your gun, and troll you.  Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about this other than to pay more attention to your surroundings.

I never have this happen to me. Must be because you are playing arty.

Obviously, send this replay to WarGaming support and explain it in a VERY detailed way what happened.

 

Use the replay to get screenshots of your barrel being blocked.

Except you're in overhead view, and it's tough to tell....and it's instant death.  Arty dies, so there's no do-over.

Doesn't your aiming line turn red if an obstacle is blocking the shot path?

No.  clean shots zoomed in each time.

Check the mini-map.  It's pretty obvious on the minimap if a teammate is sitting almost on top of you.

Getting rid of artillery without getting banned for TK'ing. This is the hero WoT needs

Yep.. another slime ball abusing the team damage system because they know they can get away with it.

Asking arty players to pay attention and have some skill? You must be joking right? They should be able to eat cheetos while simply clicking around from overhead view.

I don't see the problem here. Normal players have to watch their surroundings so they don't shoot teammates. Just because artillery players are all mentally challenged doesn't mean that they get a free pass to just shoot without looking at what is in their line of fire.

I have to admit, it's kind of hilarious that arty players insist it's not true that you don't need skill to play arty, yet here they're admitting that they don't even notice a tank sitting right in their faces.

Problem is it instantly TKs the arty.  Im fine with paying a fine if I nick a guy.  Getting TK'd instantly isn't much fun.  Plus, he did it on purpose. TK arty, no ban and a credit bonus.

As I said, I'd be fine with a fine.  But the instant TK is what sucks.  And BTW, you won't find a post where I saw it takes skill to play arty.
