this nicholas kept following me, guns ripping away, attracting enemy cruisers and scaring off battleships.

No matter where I went, he was on my 6, doing his thing.

I tell him to go away, no response.

never have I more contemplated going pink.

Did ~10K damage that match.

sometimes you would have a perfect torp angle just to see a troller move into the path and have to hold on the torps

Is there more to this story?  Were you a completely random, innocent target?  Any chat that led up to this?

Been there..   Simple, as also stated above.  Just stop in a safe location.  The other operator will get bored and move on.

And I assume you are also in a destroyer.  If I were in a BB, CA, and maybe in a CV, I might welcome that.

Yeah I hate to say it the Admins won't do anything about them (Either they are employee accounts or elite players) so ignore them and hope they don't get to aggressive. Had this problem in other game forums thankfully this site has ignore. Also blacklist them in game.

I say revel in your newly-discovered power! You're a DD Whisperer!

Never will you be without a handy torp-chucking remora. "sic 'em, DD!" will be your battlecry!

Yesterday I submitted a replay and reported a CV on my team who everyone thought was a bot because for the first 5 minutes of the game he did nothing but spam Well Done!! and craplike that and move around without launching any planes. Then he launched a couple while talking crapin chat and did nothing but hang back and wait for killsteals. We won despite the handicap but having idiots like this is frustrating.

There need to be more reporting options and no limits (except on a specific person in a specific game) for bull craplike this. He could be a raging [edited] as long as he attempted to play his role. Their handicapping the team deliberately is my issue.

Kill 7 ships.....  Team-play and winning is completely optional.

Sounds like a man on a mission.

"torp-chucking remora", "sic 'em DD" Okay, that was a good chuckle! Thanks! I may have to use those.

Yeah, because that might validate or justify the behavior of the infant driving the Nicolas.

Not completely, no, because childish is childish.  I am not accusing you of anything, btw, I am just asking.  No need to get defensive...

 

 

 

...or is there?

No, not at all.

 

I'm not saying you did but I've observed people asking; when did you stop beating your wife, Glenn?

Can't say i've done that active pursuit type thing, but I mayyy have, at one point, strategic revealed and caused a battleship to hit the brakes such that a temmates torps missed....  and mine hit.  lol.  Now, I didn't do it just so that their torps would miss but only so that mine would hit because they were off target.  The other guy was kindof starchy anyways, so i don't feel too terrible.

I've had guys get between me and any targets, and then keep their speed matched to stay there, so that I couldn't ever launch torps. I averaged around 7k damage those rounds, all guns, and that was when they'd allow me to stay within gun range, not too5 easy in an IJN DD, far easier with Farragut. It's absurd that people are such d*cks, but, they are.

just get right up next to them then, and start firing.  all the incoming fire will hit them instead of you, even if they stay in stealth.  Also gives you the opportunity to push them into all the torps meant for you.  Ready-made meatshield.
