Winner gets... well nothing.  But let's hear them anyway.

 

Here's mine, fresh from 15 minutes ago:

 

In my Fiji, headed to contest the D cap on Two Brothers.  Friendly DD about 1 km on my right turns hard left and rams into me, apparently desperately trying to get to the mid channel instead, because that always works out so well.  I don't budge, hold my course, and practically drag him to the edge of the cap circle (one way to get a DD to cap I guess) when he finally scrapes free.  Next come his torps.  I'm reduced to less than 4K hp and just as I slow to pop smoke in the cap, I get wrecked by an enemy BB.

 

I rage in chat, with the guy staying blissfully silent.  A few minutes later, a friendly Konigsberg torps the DD to death, announcing that I have been avenged.  It was awesome.  Of course he turns pink when the DD did not.  Wargaming's "policies" working as intended.

 

Out of curiosity, I check the DD's stats. Only 400 pVp games played at an average tier of 1.9!  He has played 236 games in Tier I ships!

The first time I turned pink was with the Gneisenau. I was tunnel-visioned on a Scharnhorst and didn't notice the Mahan right next to me until after I launched. The Mahan had no time to react, and what's even worse was the fact that the Scharnhorst would have sailed out of range by the time my torpedoes even got close.

 

My second and most recent time was with the Iwaki. I was torpedoing a battleship at close-quarters. One torpedo missed, kept on going, and sunk a friendly Katori. A similar incident happened with a friendly Isokaze. Flooding, they popped DCP just in time to save me from turning pink.

I had just bought the Kamikaze, I was so proud of my little ship. Went into a match for the first time and was heading to cap.

As I rounded an island, there was an enemy cruiser, just the other side of the enemy was a friendly cruiser who was running alongside me to cap

I tried to torp the cruiser, but judged my aim poorly.... very poorly.

the cruiser sailed on by with no damage from me, as all six of my torps slam into the broadside of my teammate. :hiding:

 

On the flipside, I was playing a random match in my Alabama, when I was in the middle of a full turn the alarms go off. I look desperately at the enemy side of my ship for the incoming torps when I was sunk by my own team, there was a DD using me as cover... :facepalm:

My first time was because apparently on the enemy team, bots can see torps the second you launch them, but when they're on your team they can't see 2 feet in front of them, had plenty of time to move out of the way, but what did the brilliant bot do? Kept sailing in a straight line, not once did it try to dodge my torps, I now hate having bots on my team because they seem to be more dumb on your team than on the enemy team, another example of bot stupidity is running into islands, they will literally just back up and run into it again, it's basically out of the game when it runs bow on into an island

Went pink for reasons that shall not be named, but I got serious karmic retribution a few matches later when a Moskva somehow snagged his anchors on one of my Montana's main turrets.  As I was pink at the time, I ended up taking something like 500 damage per second, and since the penalty gets continuously more severe the longer you do it, the numbers got got up to almost 2.5k per tick towards the end.  But whatever we tried to do, he couldn't get his bow off my gun barrel for a good minute or so, which resulted in taking over 55000 reflected TK damage in addition to damage from people who don't appreciate ships having a lewd moment in public.  I went into that at full health and came out of it dead.

 

He did get off me eventually, and managed to not get pink himself by killing me with ramming damage.  Strangely, the only reason I freed myself was by firing my guns - at his hull since it was caught on the barrels.  I had HE loaded and his DCP was up (plus RNGesus decided not to give me a fire with 3 HE hits that each have a 36% fire chance for some reason) , so I didn't die (barely) from that and he came off just fine.  For whatever reason, he just popped right off after that.  The salt in the wound was I kept hearing that stupid banging noise associated with major damage as soon as the audio returned to normal seconds because I was taking damage fast enough to trigger it.

 

I died anyways a moment later because he carelessly (or spitefully, I'll never know) bumped me with his stern as he pulled away and I lost the remaining 2000-ish HP to one tick of reflected ramming damage.  Although to be honest, I probably would have just shot his belt and killed myself anyways, you can't repair even 1HP of reflected TK damage, and the team was already in the process of being steamrolled 5 minutes in when I died - I wasn't even in the first third to perish.

Some jacksss tripitz torped me, then shot a full salvo at me and then went pink. He didn't know that when he was pink 99% of his dmg goes back to him. He was looking for my citadel and found it, he died the next salvo... I couldn't stop laughing.

Ok Ok! This one just happened 2 days ago.

 

Map: Domination, on Estuary.

 

So I was on my Tirpitz. Due to poor map awareness and what have you, I end up getting nuked by a Saipan on our cap zone in the first 3-4 minutes of the game. I take like 5 torps! That hurt.

 

I was really vexed, but I didn't take my frustration on chat. However, there was this other friendly Tirpitz nearby. He actually got on my way, and I think I might've end up eating an extra torp from the Saipan because I couldn't maneuver well because of him. In my vexation, I angrily shoot some volleys near the water around him. He took no damage from my shells, but it was quite provocative on my part.

 

He apparently got upset and shot a volley on me doing 7-8k damage. I of course got angry, but didn't take it further, and just sailed away. Now, he might've rage quit or something after that, because he became even more sluggish then he was before, and quickly got melted down by the red team. Since I was still somewhat near his last position, as a gesture I end up launching a torpedo salvo at his already dead carcass, because of the 7.2k salvo he did on me. All four torps hit his lifeless hull.

 

Now, in comes this dammed "allied" Nurnberg, who apparently misunderstood the exchange and thought I was some rogue pink player for deliberately "sinking" an allied ship. He in his fury cusses at me in Spanish slang, while also torping me from close range, and I take about 2-3 torps, and a flooding. Now, due to that torpedo launch from him at me, I launched a retaliatory shell volley on him before I die to his torps, and get 12,760 damage on him. Of course, I end up pink, and so does he, I believe, but as he apparently got a kill, on the Team Score it shows as him getting "0" kills rather than "-1" like I did (As I unfortunately didn't get the chance to kill a red player).

^ That silly Nurnberg really screwed up. The only AP damage I took was from my own Tirpitz lol

 

Well, regardless, I was in the wrong for provoking the Tirpitz initially, but that Nurnberg really was even more foolish for doing an actual TK on me.

 

On the bright side of things, while it showed that I was TK for 7 games, I only needed to play 5 to sweat it off. I de-pinked myself that very same day, and had some nice matches, so it was all good in the end. I've only been pink twice* so far with this since the TK patch went live last year, and I've played 2k matches since then. I've got a clean record otherwise, I'd say :)

 

 The first time I turned pink was last year, where by accident I shot near behind a friendly BB who caught fire with one of my Myoko shells. He let the fire burn, so the 10k fire damage turned me pink lol

The Halloween event last year, the Co-op Escort one.

 

Turned pink after accidentally lighting fire to the Transylvania.

 

Round or two later i had the brilliant idea to give all of my teammates a "hug" by firing 1 shell into each. Didn't have the foresight to switch to AP. Lit the last guy on fire and melted within 4 seconds from reciprocated damage.

 

Laughed so hard i could hardly breath for 5 minutes, had to mute my mic and all so poeticmotion and Pulicat could talk since they were still in the match lol.

I was in Marblehead contesting a center cap.  I had just finished blazing away at two destroyers (I think I sank one and chased the other away), and now had my eye on a fat battleship that was lumbering his way toward me from behind an island.  He was within torp range, and I had an island close to my bow.  I intended to drop my torps as soon as my lead indicator cleared the island, then disappear behind my island.  Wait...wait...and now!  I launched my torpedoes...

 

...just as a friendly destroyer came zipping past from my stern, barely outside my torpedo arming circle.  I never saw him until then...didn't even know he was in the area.  I guess he wanted that torp ambush just as badly as I did.  So, he timed his pass perfectly enough to eat every one of my torps (not that all of them were necessary to kill him), and I went pink.

 

I was a bit bitter.  I have no idea why he would sail right in front of a stationary cruiser who was pretty obviously waiting for the battleship to emerge from behind an island.  Perhaps he didn't notice how close he was to me.  Still, I should have seen him, too.  So, I apologized in chat.  He never said a thing, but his div mate sure gave me a ton of grief.

Whenever I division with friends, I'll send them some burning love when we are about to win a round.  One time Killjoy1941 received some shells from my kamikaze r.  He returned one shot from his t-22 turret... detonation.

Was in My Alabama in a domination battle on Estuary.

I was was sailing North along the eastside of the islands by A, bow angled to an Amagi. There was also a DD in the area. Supporting me from behind was a Mogami, and a few other ships further back.

The Amagi had run aground up ahead of me, and I was angling to right, trying to keep a decent angle on the Amagi, but also loooking for Torpedos from the red DD lurking behind him. Finally got the cit and kill on the Amagi and was now focused on the smoke cloud before me.

 

Then the torpedo alarms went off. I naturally start looking in front of me towards the smoke before I realise they were coming from behind. 2 Hit and I lose half my health. And yes, I had to hit my repair.

 

The next thing I see is in the txt chat someone posting that was my fault for getting in the way of his torpedos. Given the distance at the time between me and the Amagi (had been about 6-7km when he died) as well as what I had thought was the closest ship on my team and the Amagi, I believed it had been the Mogami that hit me.

 

This led to a long argument, with me saying that since he fired the torpedos, he owned them, he was at fault. Naturally he disagreed and blamed me for steering into them 'knowing' that he had fired them. I finally had enough as you can't argue for long with an idiot.

 

It wasn't until the end of the game that I realized I had been getting angry with the wrong ship. A second ship had come up behind me while I was focused on the Amagi and the red DD.

 

It was a Scharnhorst who had torped me, which then angered me more as there was no way he could have ever hit that Amagi. He was still a further 2-3km back behind me, meaning he was targeting a reversing Amagi from between 8-10km away, while only having 6km torp range, with a friendly BB in front of him.

We somehow won....but given the damage I took from those torps, I miss the old Team Damage credit winfall.

One of my earliest matches.  Was playing the wickes I think. Dumped all the torpedoes on one side, then turned and dumped the other at an oncoming enemy.  That enemy was 8km away.  My entire advancing team was 3km away.  I sunk 3 allied ships in one salvo who told me(in a very irritated tone) to watch my fishes.

The only one I can remember was in my Amagi.  At the start of the match I plotted my course on the large map and got up to go to the bathroom.  When I came back I was ramming a friendly Atago.  I apologized, got detached from him and apologized again for the 48 hit points he'd lost.  He then fired a full salvo of HE and a torps into me.  He was a bad shot with the torps and only one hit me, but he did almost 20,000 damage and lit me on fire in 3 places with some flooding as an insult to injury.  So, I let the fires burn and the flooding continue and he was raging in chat at me for not repairing the damage.  He got even more furious when the mirror damage started hitting him and made all kinds of threats.  We both ended up dying.  The real kicker was that it was one of those rare 200% XP events and despite being down 2 ships, my team won the match and I got nothing.  :(

In ring caps ,Me in my Murmansk and a DD collided , more of a sideswipe really both avoiding enemy fire, both at fault , stuff happens, but being a team player type ooops sorry and just about to send and he shoots me in the stern with 1 round and starts hurling all sorts of profanity at me ... I deleted my type , pondered a second and then fired 1 round into his stern, this seems to have upset the bully some , his profanity gets worse and he launches torps at me, I dodge they miss I fire a full salvo over his bow, he switches to guns and starts hitting me with rounds, I do the same, he hits me with 1 torp, So here we are both in hard turns circling each other shooting each other when in chat a calming voice says " when you guys are done having fun .. UNINSTALL THE GAME !!, it was at this point me being low on health a enemy BB took me out, different rules those days he nor I turned pink

A couple of days ago, I had a "friendly" cruiser pin my DD to an island, so he could launch torps at a BB.  The thing is he refused to back off and let me off the island, said I was in a DD and should have gotten out of his way.  Instead, he kept me pinned there while the BB deleted both of us.  The thing is I had been waiting patiently for the BB to make it around the island when he charged in.  By the way, his torps missed, and of course I couldn't launch mine, couldn't shoot my guns.  All I needed him to do was hit reverse.  Not sure what he got out of this.  I've been run into islands before (usually in low tier matches), but never had anyone pin me there and wait to get deleted with me.  

 

Anyway it was probably karma paying me back for past transgressions when I was a lot less concerned with where my teammates were when launching torps.  No one turned pink, maybe this is part of the new meta?

My best was the one I had to watch the replay to figure out.

 

I'd just started playing DDs again after a fairly pathetic showing when I first started the game. I was in the T3 or 4 IJN DD. I'd just launched torps at a BB and was sitting in smoke holding down the LMB pew pewing the BB as well. Torps hit, BB sank. Game ended. We won. I'm pink. I did 102 dmg to a friendly DD and sank him. Huh? I go back and watch the replay. A low health DD comrade sidles into my smoke while I'm pew pewing and slides right in front of me. My back gun hits him for the last of his hp. Sigh.
