About 09:25 in we are winning and I decide to try a trick shot. Mid block on Ruinberg I aim for a window and hit the jackpot. Beware the windows!

Love the one shot multiple kill. I have done a two kill and came within 1% HP on a triple kill which will be the crowning gem in a my WoT journey if I can ever manage one.

I love dropping one through the window of the Berlin bunker and getting all those defense points. Doesn't always work and the reds have to be close to the window, but it's always satisfying.

Shooting through Windows is a neat trick.

I have driven the hoards back from under overhangs trading blows with my team.  The look of confusion the the red tanks face is awesome as they back up and turn their turrets on each other looking like wthwas that?

Another example of why players who play a fair amount of arty know how to avoid arty. :)

Having recently acquired the CGC, to be honest, watched the entire replay and was already amazed at the first shot you took.

You aimed and it went straight down the middle.  I literately cannot remember taking a single shot where this has happened.

There's times you have to rush a shot, you get some rebloom, etc.  You take the shot and it's you can excuse the inaccuracy.

I've never aimed at a sitting still tank and hit it.  It's splash or nothing.  To put one through the window was simply amazing.

When your teammates are in a heated battle and need all the help they can get, but the RNG mechanics of the CGC give

worst odds then a slot machine... it's one of the worst experiences of the game.  Of course it would be over-powered if it had

great accuracy, but no hits?  Maybe my expectations were too high?  Thought every once in awhile you'd see at least one

of those moments where you sneak up behind a medium with a KV-2 and it's a massive hit.  Instead, it's a toss up whether you'll

do more damage in the CGC or the Bishop.

Well done! It is the sort of thing the arty haters like to trot out as an example of why arty needs to be nerfed. They do not notice that the most damage you did in a single shot about 465, lots of hi 100's to mid 200's. This out of a book "average" of 1200. Lots of shots flying to the outer edge of the aiming circle, incredible bloom when you shift aim just across the street. Not to mention the glacial reload time. All these attributes of arty make it a rare, but very satisfying shot. 

 

Lastly, I noticed your double kill targets had 100 &179 hp left. Ripe for the picking. I suspect that at least one of them will have claim to have been "one shotted" by arty.

3 Bombadiers here, my fave was the one where fired a predictive (ie guess) shot at a low health enemy that had gone dark, killed him along with an unspotted arty. :arta:

Nice shot. I've gone back to playing the M44 to get some arty based missions done and I've gotten really good at using the sniper mode to drop rounds through all kinds of small openings. It really does feel like cheating, but "working as intended" *shrug*
