... so you can't fire your guns without hitting him?  This is what you do...

I'm sure he wasn't trying to do it on purpose so it's all in good fun (hence no name and shame). :P

Yep, but what if they are doing it on purpose....and sometimes they do....very frustrating...usually, I will just put the brakes on and let them slip by and head off a different direction, but it sure is tempting to blast them out of the water just for chits and giggles...but, I digress.

I warn people in my torp arcs. If they don't move I fire anyway and spam F9 - GET BACK!! if they die I shrug.

Seems like it happens most when your trying to line up a torpedo shot with your DD, only to have a teammate come up effectively block your shooting lane. Frustrating.

I'll ping, and holler.

 

That usually does the trick.

 

Making a smart a** comment like you hope they sink soon so you can actually help your team usually gets everyone on your side.

On the PTS they don't teamkill anymore, they just sail into your torps....happened to me in the Shimi the other night(twice)just about killed all that was left of my team...lots of time in the penalty box!

I replayed that on fast, with all the ship bumping and kill notifications it looked like a pinball game.

What usually happens to me in this scenario is I'm in the DD, trying desperately to get my torp shot lined up, when from the opposite direction some kamikaze kruiser slices in front of me trying to secure a kill (and also making sure I don't get a shot). I spend quite enough time pink accidentally to ever want to spend some on purpose, so obviously I don't fire. I know a lot of players have the same attitude as @w4spl3g, but I just play like that and purposely not care about damaging team mates. But, yeah; frustrating.

That's never happened to me. I'm not sure how that can even happen. Maybe a 1 in 10,000 battles kind of experience.

Hilarious replay!  I'll remember that next time someone gets in my way like that.
