It's possible your ammo rack was dewstroyed or you received multiple hits at the same time.

Basically the shot detonated your ammo rack, which instantly destroys your tank.

 

Unfortunate.

To be specific, when a shell penetrates a tank, it does damage to any modules it hits. If it does enough damage, the module can turn yellow, or in the case of a lot of damage, red. For the ammorack, turning red makes it explode and instantly kills you. However, every hit on a module only has a 33% chance of counting as damage, which is why you don't see it as often as usual.

get safe stowage for first loader skill. does significantly reduces the chance of nasty surprise. yeah my first ammo rack was a [edited] moment for me. way back in 2012. was in my sexy IS3 driving it around with full hp, make a turn at the corner and boom! tank destroyed.

^^^^

Don't really do this, you will be ammo racked pretty infrequently. 

 

Get repairs or camo as a first skill which will help you every single battle many times over. Safe stowage is better as second skill

Agreed, if you don't get hit because you aren't spotted or dont get hit because you repaired tracks quickly when repair kit is on cool down, then it will help you avoid ammo racks and damage taken in general.

Why is it that I can shoot enemies and not get spotted but I get spotted, but get shot when there are no enemies in sight? This game is rigged and full of hackers!

Depends on the player I guess, I am fine with no instant gratification,camo and repairs are generally my second skill. I pick safe stowage that required it to be 100% in order to function first knowing that getting from 0-100% for first skill is easy compared to do it as second skill, in fact some of my tank crew has BIA as second skill.

That is a question about vision in game, you should look it up first.  getting shot with no enemies in sight meant someone spotted you while you have failed to spot them.  for that look up for camouflage.

The first question to ask when you don't understand how something happens is, " what do I not understand about the game mechanics?" Not scream haxx.

 

The whole point of  camo and vision mechanics is to see while not being seen. What makes you think that if you can take advantage if this to shoot others without being seen, that your opponents can't do the same to you?

Looking at the IGN, one might think it's a poe.

Instant gratification? No psycological reason, just logic. 

 

Its more about picking something which will benefit you multiple times every game, rather than picking something which will benefit you once every 30 games but in a big way. 

 

Its the reason people buy lottery tickets. Happy to take ongoing losses in the hopes of getting a big one.

let's say you will need 100 games to get your first skill maxed and another 200 games to get your second skill maxed.  you did rather have 100% camo for 200 games before you get safe stowage.  300 games without additional ammo HP. So how often do you get ammo racked as in yellow not instant kill I guess very often.  I would opt for 100 games with no perks at all but at 101th game I have extra ammo HP and increasing camo rating all the way for the next two 200 games. 

 

Don't see your logic there.  in fact I do agree with your statement if you are using gold for retraining, camo first, max it out then retrain to safe stowage and start on camo again. then again most people don't use gold for that so I only provide a more realistic approach if you want your safe stowage working at the earliest.

Absolutely, I always pick combat effectiveness skills and perks first. Every single time. Mostly repairs because I have an aggressive style and I will be spotted anyway. For stealth tanks camo first but nearly always repairs. I don't play campy tds.

 

I use those skills every single second of every single game. Being able to repair tracks quickly means you can be active in combat. 

 

Why would I pick a skill that helps me once every blue moon and give up something which is valuable many times a game. And I will have full use of that skill for 200 games. 

 

Get a damaged ammo rack a bit but that is what the repair kit is for.

repair kit is nice but there is cool down on it, I have more issues with my DPM dipping than those problem above.  can't let my sexy 5.2 seconds per shot ROF turn into a 10 seconds per shot.  That actually pisses me off more than anything. you can have my track and whatever else, just leave my gun and ammo alone and I still be able to dish out a world of pain. I normally play tanks with high ROF and of course auto loaders.
