Same thing happened to me near the end of May

I do not get it.  I have been on WOT since the end of 2012, and I have never seen this kind of thing in tier ten matches, just lower tiers, at least in the past.   Is something changing  out there, or are people just getting nastier and more stupid?   Yeah, I did complain in game, but that never does anything.

It's making its' way to tier X finally, it's less common in lower tiers now because Heavy Tankers are realizing that SPGs can lend a lot of support to a gridlocked flank.

let me clarify something.  you weren't TK'd because you were arty.  you were TK'd because someone else is a child.

"I hate arty because it kills me so I'll make sure that nobody can play arty in my teams", that's what happened in the mind of that guy.

No, he was tk'd because he was in arty.

You been lucky. I think I had less then 20 battle in arty when I was team killed for the 1st time. One of the reason I stopped playing Arty. Besides being painfully boring waiting to reload, SPGs constantly need to look out for their own teammates.

I literally never see this in lower tiers.  In 22K games played, I've probably only seen about 25 matches where there were intentional TKs at the start of the match, and they weren't focused on SPGs.  In all those games I've only been team-griefed once while driving an SPG (and in that case it was a 2-tank platoon that decided to block and push my Leafblower; they didn't shoot me.).

But I don't play much Tier 10.  I'm getting the idea that Tier 10 has the lion's share of jerks.  Like turds, I guess they float to the top.

Just because you use all your brain cells trying to get "arty safe" while contributing nothing to your team doesn't mean arty is fine as it is, you know.

And the fattest ones sink to the bottom :)

Anyone that TK's ARTY Intentionally should get life time ban. This ARTY HATE thing needs to stop. Don't like ARTY in the game? Don't play it. I can not stand the changes that have come forth because of the prissy [edited]cry baby's that [edited]and wine all the time. Go find your safe place on some other game.

Funny how anyone who disagrees with you and tks an arty should be banned for life.  But I would guarantee that if the issue was put to a vote, the majority of players would choose to eliminate arty.  that doesn't mean WG should eliminate arty, but when you eliminate all the players who hate arty, you're going to greatly diminish a player base that's already dropping in numbers.

You're casually assuming that all arty haters will TK arty.   I'm sure that's false.

looking at your stats, not really sure youre qualified to have an educated opinion on anything in this game except the need for a more helpful, useful tutorial.

You should probably just stop playing arty, that way it won't happen again.

The guy who team killed you was probably smoked by art in the match preceding yours. He took his anger out on you.

TKing your own arty is as dumb as sticking a fork in your eye because you saw something you didn't like.  All the arty hate is asinine.  In 15k matches I can reasonably say I've been killed by arty maybe a dozen times.  How is that worse than getting derped by a KV2 or JP E100? Honestly people, grow the hell up.  Arty is a tiny fraction of the damage in this game.

To TK another member of your team just lowers your chance of winning

So he saved the enemy team from a miserably unenjoyable match while simultaneously preventing a camper at the back of the map from inflicting team damage during pushes.

 

I don't see how this is mean spirited or stupid. A sacrifice of one for the good of the many.

​Be sure to file a ticket with tech support and include the video.  Buzzards like that need to kicked from the game.
