Ok, screen shots attached, but basically i have accidentally set fire to friendly BB with one salvo as he was retreating across my line of fire, fire kept ticking thus turning me pink, and that was obviously malicious and thus in need of punishment (my fault, but give me that damn fire RNG on enemies, not friendlies).

But the numbers make no sense. Game says i dealt 40k damage to friendlies, but how is that possible?

 

P.S. I do realize that i sucked that game, 12/15 ships were t10 and pretty much every BB could just blap me, so i played stupid safe.

Ok so its damage plus teamkill penalty? Damage makes sense, but what is teamkill penalty, i think final blow was by enemy ship.

The teamkill penalty is the reflected damage you did to yourself afaik.

Ok.... so damage done to myself is counted as allied damage? Ok, i guess that makes some sense, stupid, but some sense

If it makes you feel any better, I just sank a team mate who was on less than 5% health with my CV (kaga) when I was doing a cross drop on an enemy B, friendly bb sailed into the edge of the cross drop = me pink. I did all of 1k dmg to him.

Pink is almost unicum violet, if it helps your morale :)

Don't worry too much about being pink. Most random games have a pink player or two in them. Hardly anyone pays it any mind nowadays. The only thing I usually worry about when I see a pink ship is to be careful to not bump into them so that they won't stay pink.

I'm glad we have more breast cancer awareness supporters.

It happens. When I did it I just did a bunch of Co-Op battles and worked it off.  Good thing about Co-Ops (especially in lower tiers) is that they up and done in no time.  4 or 5 matches in half an hour. 

But yeah, grievers will try to collide with you.  It's just what you get in F2P games.  Best to work off that pink before the weekend gets here.  The weekend warriors will bring even more grievers.

Oh, I'm very aware of breasts.  Didn't know you could get cancer from them.

I honest to God thought it was something along those lines when I joined.

 

So more to the OPs question which I think he may be fuzzy on: When you are pink, any team damage you do from then on is done to you instead of your teammate.

Just wait till you get the tk penalty for setting a bb on fire with your secondaries.... and his repair is on cooldown. We were both engaged with a red bb about 16k when a dd came around an island. The secondaries on my Tirp went to work and....  yeah... 9 match penalty.

No problem.  It happens to all of us from time to time.

 

Also, don't think someone is just being mean by letting a friendly fire burn.  In general, a good BB player will allow one fire to burn and save DCP for two or three fires.  Damage from one fire can mostly be taken care of with a repair team.  Two or three fires will eat a BB up.

Secondaries no longer do damage to friendlies.

When did they change that? Have a friend to whom it happened, but that was ages ago (last year summer i think...). Anyways, glad that got changed. 

The whole thing is me getting a bit too tilted over 1 small mistake messing me up for the game, but that kind of thing happens, and not to often so i cant be too critical. In 20/20 retrospect I was getting a bit too pissy about the whole thing.

Anyways, glad i understand these mechanics better now.

Anyone who has played this game long enough has turned poink at least once, with most occurrences surely being accidental.  Don't sweat it.

 

Just buff it off with a few co-ops and voila!  You're not gay anymore!

How long is 'long enough?' Still have never turned pink.  Had a chance last night but other boat had a good captain.  ;)

I prefer the term "off-red".

Yeah!  Better captures the notion of "a threat to everyone".
