Let me set up the scene: It's a game on Abby in my Pershing. I'm fighting, doing pretty good. Our team mows down the other team, and we advance to their base, and I see an enemy T20. So I do what anyone else with an accurate gun does: I sniped him. Then, he goes off on a mini chat tirade about how I "cheap shotted him." The heck? :blink: What was I supposes to do? Rush in and kill him with honor? After the game, I took the time to make a chat with him, wishing to learn a little more about what he meant. This is the chat, unedited except for names and the bolding:
bobbobman (5:47:53 PM) So, you accuse me of "cheap shotting" you. Go on, I want to see exactly what you mena
bobbobman (5:47:54 PM) mean
The Idiot (5:53:54 PM) lol
The Idiot (5:54:03 PM) cant believe you took the time to make a chat about it
The Idiot (5:54:06 PM) okay then
The Idiot (5:55:05 PM) fighting a kv and a su-100, get ****** by a pershin from some other angle from a distance. K? Good enough for you ******* Now **** off and do whatever you little white children do on a tuesday night, its past your bed time right?
The Idiot (5:57:51 PM) Unlike you, I dont have the time to wait for an answer, so later *******
bobbobman (5:57:52 PM) ..................I took the time to make a chat becuase you are completely ridiculous. It's called sniping.

So, what does the public think? Is sniping "cheap"?

No, sniping is the lifeblood for some vehicles. He was just all "Mommy!!!!!!!! Someone used superior tactics to kill meh!!!!! Hold me!!!!!!!!!!1!!1"


Just disregard them, unless you have the oppertunity to make it amusing for yourself.

If sniping is cheap, then ban the German tanks!

Russians are OP, so ban them too!

Chinese ruin matchmaker, ban them!

Americans have awful armour, might as well remove them!

French super OP with autoloaders, get rid of them!

What tanks do we have left?

(PS sniping is all fair, you take advantage of view range and accuracy of a tank that the devs placed onto the tank.  I personally love sniping too)

Like Dutch said, sniping is one of the main tactics, and even the point of existence for certain tanks, like the Panther. Its not cheap at all, and usually advised for tanks like Pershings and Panthers.

What you did was not cheap. What is cheap is sniping in a tank that's meant to be in the enemy's face trading hit for hit. AKA a brawler. But the brawler scenario is more applicable to teammates who die as a result of a tank on their team not doing what it should.

He's just butt hurt from getting killed by a tank he couldn't see.

LOL... I think you should have announced that you will be firing on him  in all chat before sniping him and he should turn his attention to you  and defend himself since his busy fighting a KV and SU-100. Or like the age of chivalry you should challenge him to a personal combat 1vs1 winner take-all.

I would  just ignore this type of people.

I think we all get a little butt hurt when we're tagged by a tank we can't see.

Got in a fight a couple days ago where some guy is just wearing me out from behind; bang bang bang... but I couldn't see him to save, quite literally, my keister.  Luckily someone else did as they rumbled by, hammering the annoying PZIII/IV pretty good before I could respond.
He was about 15 meters away, in the wide open of a field... and I couldn't see him while in the same field.

REALLY...what a nub; of course sniping is a tactic. What does the guy want anyone to do....ride up, introduce yourself and ask kindly if "we can duke it out like men. please shoot first it is only fair"

Sniping is a good tactic and useful.  I think he needs to be reported for racism, that is my take on it.

How the heck did this guy get up to T20 and still think the team effort to personally waste you is "cheap"?

IF you had gone up and brawled with him he prob would've been killed anyway, so what did he think death by sniper was a cheap shot more than death by pwnage? On second thought he prob would complained about that too, some people in this game really amaze me sometimes  <_<

Not that WoT is entirely realistic, but I'm sure that real tankers saw the enemy at range and said, "Let's get out of cover and go fight him like a man... <heavy sarcasm>".  Please, I play almost exclusively German and I love the accuracy.  Nothing better than dropping in heavy damage in my Panther at 580 Meters (G1 to K6) on Sand River... Wish I could attach the replay, but here is the end game pic. I did 75% damage on the M4 Sherman. Attached File   massacre.JPG   111.61K
