Answer to Team Killing

Long story short, took five torpedoes from an ally today. totally demolished me. He gets pinked for five games and then goes on about how I should have seen them. Calls me a noob, etc. Insult to injury, he gets all the hit points from my ship. 

 

I have been seeing an awful lot of pink ships lately and EVERY time it happens it's NEVER their fault. The point is the disgrace of being pink has no real repercussions other than a little humiliation. Anyone comments in-game, it's always, "The stupid noob turned into my torpedoes". 

 

So, how about making it so the "noob" that gets team killed gets all the hitpoints, credits, and xp for this and the next five battles fought by the TK. That way, not only do they get pinked, everyone knows they are paying some "noob" all their point for awhile.

 

This gives satisfaction to the player that was TKed and gives a severe penalty for TKing, I have TKed before (never with five torpedoes, only two) and would have gladly forfeited the points to those who I inadvertently killed.

 

Apply pain and it will end.

just ignore him and move on..... nothing you can do about people that refuse to pay attention to their team mates... not YOUR FAULT.... so let him be a DB and move on... not worth getting stressed...

Wondering similar thing, Got deliberate TK damage twice today & was not compensated. Did something change? Used to get credits for team damage...

 

I do like them having to pay their victims in some fashion.

 

BTW, the clever ones will take you down to nearly dead, & leave the enemy to finish the job.

I agree. All friendly damage should be taken back to the person who did it. That'd end it. No pink, no complaining, no drama. You hit a friendly, you take damage. Seems incredibly simple.

The team damage team killing penalty system is fine as it is and quite severe with account bans for those who persist. Also once pink any team damage done is received by that player and can cause them to tk themselves and extends the penalty battles they have to do to work it off.  Also Mordalen the compensation was removed when the fixed service cost was put in place, the player is still fined credits and xp but the target is no longer compensated.

OP the TKer does not get credit for damage done to you. It may show up in the detailed report on how much was done to your ship but it is not included in total damage dealt and XP earned for battle.

If Teamkilling is annoying and frustrating just remove the feature World of Tanks Blitz is a example of a WG game without team damage

This was a great rant; congratulations on relieving all that built up pressure, because that is all you really did.

EVERYONE gets teamkilled. Me, you, the community contributors, the guys and gals that post in this forum; EVERYONE.

And while it sucks, and can definitely put a negative speed bump in your gaming day, it happens.

A lot, because we have a lot of new players, and they have credit cards, and WoW sells premium ships to anyone.

So try to go with this:

it's not what happens, it's what you choose to do about it.

Whatever you choose to do, be a mensch, do it with style and class, and go out like a pro.

Because WoW has had over a year to "fix" or "eliminate" teamkilling, and has chosen not to do so, so it's here to stay.

So handle it like a stand up guy, and don't let it ruin your daily gaming experience.

So GL/HF and see you next match. 07. (and post something when you have a GOOD game!)

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.....

Umikami is right. On that particular day, we were advancing into A had taken it with little damage and was proceeding to move to B. It was shaping up to be a great battle for me and BOOM.

 

It WAS a rant and very cathartic.

 

I suppose that it the end it adds realism to the game because friendly fire is a reality. People do stupid things all the time and that is just human nature. Thanks for all your comments.

Ignore the moron.  Anyone who takes a shot (gun OR torpedo) is responsible for it.  It is everyone's responsibility to make sure they DON'T shoot a friend.

 

When you get to higher tiers, the frequency of pink players drops off considerably.

Had teammate try to torp me in spawning area after game first started, not even any enemy in site. Was able to avoid torp and to my surprise, suddenly his ship just blew up! Left us one teammate short but I thought it was a good punishment.

I am assuming there is no route to a complaint as there is in World of Tanks?  Had a guy, jacksonmurchin purposely team kill another team member because he felt the other guys "stole his kill".  Said he would do it anytime anyone stole one of his kills.  I was already dead and was following the cruiser that was team killed.  Even after shooting the cruiser and killing it, he said that it was for stealing his kill.  Guys like that needs to be banned.  He has made it obvious that he would continue to team kill.  I was going to file a complaint against him but could not find a way to do so.

Unfortunately, this is the way most of us learned not to do things.

I like the idea of the victim getting all the profits while the TKer is pink.  increase amount of games the killer is pink with each offense. say the first time 5 games pink. a 2nd within a month 10 games doubling the games with each offense. make it a month without another and the slate is wiped clean. instant detonation and booted back to port would be nice too. then we all wouldn't suffer the lame excuses for torping behind team mates. I just had one whining i turned into his torps which I did.  a plane had just dropped torps on me and I was avoiding them not expecting a spread from behind. it makes you mad enough that it happened. the lame excuses are just gas on the fire.

First, modify your post as WoW does NOT allow name and shame and you will get censored.

Second, you can complain in game, or you can file a ticket with support.

Be sure to include any screenshots or playbacks because these definitely help.

So Wargaming receives the credits penalty paid by the offending team killer. What's your beef? :trollface:

Seriously, what kind of convoluted, ridiculous and greedy idea is that?

WG receives nothing at all from the TK penalties

 

You're wrong as Mudd. The penalty paid by the offending party is much more than the amount received as compensation by the individual offended. So where did the funds go if not to the offended party. Riddle me that, Mudd.

there is no more compensation for team damage since the fixed service cost for battle was put in The offending player is fined credits and EXP but WG gets none of that and even if they did those are just a number in the data with no monetary value at all
