I was experimenting on shooting the roof of a tank with derp guns to reach maximum alpha, but I haven't done it yet, but it doesn't mean that I'll just stop here. On the bright side, I can still hill enemies long range when aimed like playing golf and swing that golf ball :trollface:

 

P.s. Look at the minimap to see how far

Nice shot! It must have been fun watching that shot arching through the air and landing on an enemy tank. :arta:

I'm honestly interested in how the shells are distributed. Almost every tank can fire on the move reliably(Is-6,derp m4, etc)

I can't really fire on the move all that well...it's why I've turned on Auto-Aim when I'm not in Sniper Mode.

I remember ammoracking a full-health Hetzer on the opposite flank of Copperfield with the derp KV-1. He started to get COD'd, was turning to get at the guy, and a shot to the back of his tank from across the map sent him back to the garage.

I hate it when that happens!  Being spotted locally, then getting hit long range by invisible tanks while trying to engage local enemies! 

Can't say I've been able to hit long range targets with any reliability though.

Either the fully centered shot will miss on its own (RNG, wind, earth rotation, ...) or the tank moves a bit before delivery.

Those derp HE shots are so slow sometimes, it's like hitting a fly ball and watching it drop.  T82 and T40 seemed the worst culprits - I could take a drink waiting for the shot to fall.  The other day in a Churchill 1, I saw a T40 shot coming at my center and dodged out of the way, it was that slow.

If you are not using British howitzers you don't know how much fun it can be.  Take a light or a Matilda and load up the derp. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING in this game has an arc as high as these things. I swear you can fire in a Matilda and get behind cover before your round hits. For that shot you pictured I am guessing it would take over 2 full seconds for your shot to land with the Brit howitzers. There may be more effective tanks for doing this but there are none more entertaining! I recommend the low tier British lights for this - you can run to a spot fast and then lob HE for fun and profit. If you want to try dropping rounds on their heads - the howitzers are your game.

 

That said - I had the most success with this in a game driving my IS months ago. I was in a Tier VIII and IX match and couldn't pen with gold with the 122mm so I reverted to lobbing HE. The top shots were amazing, I was doing 300-400 damage to tanks I had not hope of damaging otherwise.
