You could've torped an ally in front of you that you didn't see or mistook it as an enemy.

If you're already pink from team killing someone, any damage you do to a friendly is reflected to you and heavily multiplied.

How is this possible?

I torped another Caledon and then my ship blew up (Was at 1/3rd of health). I did not understand that part.

 

 

As a pink player any damage you do to allies/friendlies is reflected back to you. So that is how you killed yourself

I know a while back there were weird circumstances that Udaloi can torpedo itself.  The problem is the aft torpedo launcher.  There were videos, animated gifs of Udaloi doing the typical turn away and torp launch.  The ship turns and the stern of the ship turns fast enough that it hits the torps launched.  It defies what we know about torps, especially that arming distance, but it happened on Udaloi.  I cannot find that animated gif nor youtube video anymore, been a long time.

When I am pink I do it all the time right before someone is about to kill me. Prevents my kill from going to the enemy!

Some ships can shoot themselves. Additionally, you can scuttle in CV's.

 

What ship can shoot itself?

 

Carriers can still suicide and it doesn't directly cause a teamkill penalty or a Pinkening, (for 'Reasons' I did so to myself recently...) but the damage the CV causes TO ITSELF still counts towards the total team-damage vs enemy damage ratio, and that can cause problems for you later.

Had it happen once to me in a Khab when I was helping a BB under attack. Two of my HE rounds hit him as the other ships engaged and caused a fire. Kept getting the "don't hurt your allies message" and couldn't  figure out why (didn't see  the friendly fire) A couple of minutes later I got the "penalty for causing damage message and was blown up. really an unhappy surprise.
