 Twice in the last week, I've been targeted by pinkies.  

  In my last game, some lack-wit killed two of us.   The moron was already pink, too.  Gee, I wonder why...

  What the actual f???  I haven't seen this many pinkies, or this many team kills in months at least.

Bored Children.... Take solace in the fact Pinks who kill will eventually get the Ban Hammer. Although you as a victim of this abuse will never learn the fate of such animals.{Privacy Rules}

I've noticed that also. In the last month I've taken intentional shots from "teammates" a couple of times. Before that it must have been half a year since something similar happened. It seems that WoWS might be slipping in the TKing enforcement department. That's the only thing I can think of why they had it under control for a while but it's gotten bad again.

I was in a game recently when a teammate suddenly said "what the <frog>!?" in chat. The guy who shot him said "I'm really sorry, I was just looking at your ship and clicked the mouse button." That was an honest mistake. However, in another game we had a "teammate" who started off the game throwing racial and national slurs at everyone then proceeded to go around shooting at the team. He was already pink so the damage was reflected but he caused considerable damage to the team, including me, before he sank. He got me with HE and started three fires just after I'd repaired a fire so I was darn lucky I didn't sink myself. I wonder if WG has something programmed in reference to team damage from pink players because, after he sank, the three fires only burned for a few seconds then went out.

Well yea, accidents happen all the time. I stop thinking about them 30 seconds after they happen. It's the intentional TKing  attempts often times by players already pink that tend to stick in your mind. So after months of not seeing it happen it is very noticeable that the TKing is on the upswing again for some unknown reason.

It’s just a large upswing in new DD players triggered by the release of the PA DD line and the multitude of missions that encourage DD play. A lot more inexperienced people are sailing into battle in a DD who haven’t mastered the trigger discipline you need with torpedoes. The most common team killers are crappy players anyway, so if they’ve been grinding DDs like everyone else than the odds they are already pink when they decide to intentionally teamkill are higher.

IMHO, WG should inform the WoWs community of bans. Otherwise, how do we know that problem children have actually been delt with?

 X New Players + Y are there so Many DD's = Team Kills

In Algebra, you always reduce to the lowest common denominators, If my math is right, it could be this.

Not seeing so much intentional team killers towards others on a team, but I am seeing an upswing of those in a Division causing damage to each other and killing each other.

I think you got the right common denominators but rather than (X+Y) I think it's (X times Y)/or just (XY) if you will.

Seen a LOT of pink players lately.  Only two TK's recently.  One began apologizing in chat right after it happened.  The other, as soon as the game started you could tell pinky was gonna go for a TK.  Pink DD started sailing in circles, first shooting at the water, then at other players.  I just got as much separation as I could before Pinky launched torps.  Both happened within the last week.

Steam release. I got torped in my Shima by a "friendly" Ibuki last night trying to cap. No warning. No apology. Potato continued to potate. He was basically just sitting outside a cap and spamming torps in to it while I was trying to kick the red z23 out from behind a rock.

Anytime there is a Combat Mission or Challenge that requires:

1. Torpedo Damage and/or

2. Flooding damage,

THERE WILL BE A SPIKE TEAM KILLS.  

Players that don't normally DD or CV will be out there to get the PRIZE!

All about the loot my sea faring brothers and sisters and we all gotsta get us some.

Part of life here, embrace it.   

Watched a La La driver of a PA DD drive right into my 10 km torps despite my warning launch broadcast "TORPS OUT"  

This was repeated before the inevitable strike on my hapless, clueless team mate, followed by the inevitable, "Hey Man wth?" 

Sigh, back to low tier co- op for a few....oh well get to dust off some boats I haven't sailed in a while and meet some new pals!!!

Ain't nothing but a thang!

new players who came tru steam 

remember at the start of WOW's there was alot of pink cos we exept for the testers where all new to the game

now with the game on steam u get new players that don't know the front form the back of there ships and will have to lurn and that takes a little time

the new pan-asian dd makes a mistake easyer when u play a different dd

as for the event in torping or flooding ships that may be a factor but i dont think that long time players make alot of those mistakes sure old players turn pink to from time to tiime

the nasty pink player is little jonny thats at his game and realy don't care wat he/she sinks and if he/she is pink cos he fond the game on steam of a other way and want to pass some time but has no interest in playing it for long or is just here to troll

The ones I noticed (because they actually were griefers) were all in cruisers.  Last night's idiot was in a Yorck.   Both of them also tried for multiple teamkills.

 I'm guessing we're seeing the same sort of people you see in FAIL videos on YouTube doing really stupid things to their "friends", then laughing stupidly.

  Some people just need a good hard punch in the junk, I guess...

Don't what was up with the guy doing it but it was pretty purpousful, and I've seen his handle before so not the first time... not a new blood.. and running hack of some sort... he was down to 99 HP and apparently went and gained HP some how.. Sending the replay in now..

 Yet another d-bag in a Phoenix launching torps from behind me.  First salvo barely misses my bow, second one was definitely aimed right at my Wyoming, because I ate every last one.   He was so close, our ships were just a single blob on the mini map.

  Several other salvos were dangerously close to me.  I'm getting very fed up with these f-ing idiots!

  Luckily, the game ended 30 seconds later- as he was about to eat a full broadside of 12" AP...

  Another crap day of WOWS thanks to the influx of stupids.   Game shut down in disgust, and my wallet slammed shut on a purchase I'd planned on making today.

I've seen a couple of players tk their way out of a match they didn't want to play not realizing that there are easier way to get out of a match.
