Do team killers really pay repair cost?

So I just got killed by a teammate (5 torps from a Fletcher). I know it was on purpose, it was pretty much point blank. My question is, does the team killer really pay the repair bills for the person they killed?

 

I ask because I ended up with a repair bill of -64k.    Profit was 40k, -64k for repair... so I ended up with a negative bill for the battle.

 

If TK's do not pay repair bill, then its all good.  If they are supposed to pay the repair bill, I am curious why mine was not.


I have screen shots and vid of the battle, but dont want to post it all if TKs don't pay the bill. If they are supposed to, I have no prob posting it all.

Getting pink status just means you get damage mirrored on you when you do damage to team members.

No compensation anymore... Because reasons.

 

Never mind the fact that it ends your game early preventing you of making money, ending in maybe a loss at higher tier + loss of flags, consumables, 50gold camo and other buffs that could be your +50-100-150% bonus exp on a win.

 

Bad decision from WG to not make the TK pay anymore.

There is no repair cost in the game. You only pay a service fee when you start the match

 

The reason you don't get compensated any longer is that people abused it, getting intentionally killed and making a small profit

When you get the pink stink go play it off in coop at T2/3.  The ten games go by fast.

 

I just saw a guy in a Random game playing his Gneisenau while pink. Since it's not very maneuverable another player bumped him.  Ouch! Three more games in pink.

 

The other day I witnessed one player deliberately bump a pink player twice at the start of a Random game.  I reported him.

 

There are some real jerks and bullies in this game.

 

:rolleyes:

Ok, thanks for that info.

 

Kinda funny how a guy can kill someone at the start of battle... then go on to do well and end up near the top of the charts. Almost like the TK had "NO" impact on his final score.    So, if people can do this (and only be pink).... what stops more people from doing this?

 

Being pick does not seem like its a reason not to TK.... if you can get away with it.    Those that want to TK dont care about being pink... im willing to bet.

You used to have fines applied and a portion of those fines would go to the person you team damaged, but when they did the economy change, they removed the money received from the victim.

So there is no "Real" consequence besides turning PINK?      that just does not seem right.

Once pink, damage you do to green is reduced, you still get fined, time being pink is reset, and gets you closer to a ban. You also receive damage when damaging green ships iirc

If you do it often enough you get flagged and you will get suspended.  It's not going to happen to a normal player but you can't TK every match and get away with it.  Unfortunately it can be gamed, but it's probably better to err on the side of letting some clowns get away with bad behaviour instead of being so strict that innocent or simply unaware players are getting suspended from a game they're probably paying for.

The TKing player is still penalised, but XP penalties are very low.

in my last game i was hit twice, by two separate players. i got more penalties, more pink games because i made a small mistake. i think it is unfair to be penalized if they hit you. if i it you i would be glad to pay because i was at fault.

I believe that the "TK" penalty should be at the discretion of the player on the receiving end of the damage. Tk damage can occur in many circumstances. Have the game developers considered giving a penalty button option to the player damaged or killed during a battle? If the damaged player feels that a penalty should be imposes he could click a button (yes or No). Just a thought for future testing.....

If you do damage, you get fined, possibly heavily and turned pink.  Then you feel shame and go work it off in Coop.

 

If you receive damage, you get nothing.

Absolutely not. One punishment for all team damages, and killers.

 

Its hard to say what impact team damage does in the game but blame is very easy to pass on
