This is not the first time since yesterday, it has been a nightmare with 5-6 dds on each team for every game in just about every tier from V to X.

Quick explanation here, game was almost over they had 4 ships left vs our 8 and I was charging in on a Dunkerke to finish him off that I've been fighting since mid game because he kept backing up bow on I decided to move in closer so I can go around him, we were facing each other at about 5km and this Shinonome came up from behind me and essentially unloaded all his torpedoes directly on my path, I didn't even get the chance to turn, I wasn't expecting torpedoes since they only had 1 DD left on the other side of the map, It didn't matter anyway they were so close I basically took them all without a chance to dodge any.

His excuse? Don't go infront of DDs you dumb BB. you're too fast for me.

I didn't put it here but he also said before the game ended "You're lucky I'm not in my Shima"

Then you have other people complaining how you have BBs camping at the other end of the map trying to snipe while their team gets slaughtered by the objectives.

It’s really simple. You’re responsible for the torps/shells you fire, no one else. If an ally is in front of you or in the path or your torps, don’t fire. It’s not rocket science. I’ve made the mistake of friendly fire on my fair share of occasions but I can only blame myself for it.

battleships have the right a way, not destroyers. since it take longer for battleships to make a turn then dd does. Also not rocket science.

I laugh at destroyer players for ramming me from time to time and then turn around and start blaming me for getting in his way. lol

but ya, that destroyer was an ###hole

 

also naming and shaming is a forum rule, I recommend that you hide his name now before a Mod give you a warning

From reading the post, it appears that the OP is in a Battleship, and a "friendly" destroyer dropped torpedoes from behind him and he took damage from the destroyer's torpedoes because he didn't have time to maneuver to avoid them.

I’m aware but on multiple occasions, people have posted claiming that it was the person who got hit’s fault and not the one firing the torps. I’m just stating that if you take the shot, you’re responsible for any friendly fire caused by it.

That DD was the noob.  He should be in front of NOT behind his BB.  At any rate you never launch torps with an ally in front.

1) You should remove his name.  Forum rules to protect stupid people.  So should the people quoting you.

2) Seeing as you haven't (yet) this is this is the kind of chart you get when a really bad player to starts chasing rewards missions.

WG insists on putting these type of missions up and the idiots chase them no matter what.

Lol that's funny. "You're lucky I'm not in my Shima, or I would have done even more team damage, been pink longer, and be that much closer to a vacation." :fish_palm:

Why is their FF damage at all? Why is all the damage not instantly reflected back. The victim of the FF suffers all the consequences, while the attacker gets "pink"? Its a [edited]color, that's all!? I mean are we so homophobic that being "pink" actually means a god damn thing!? Jesus, its like a bunch of 5th graders came up with that penalty.

Wonder how that DD would have responded if you nailed him with a full salvo of AP and then blamed him for being in between you and the target...  People need to understand that you are responsible for the ordinance you launch.  If you don't have a clear line of fire, then don't take it and move to a position that you will.

Isn't pink for breast cancer or anti-bullying?

As far as the "5th grader" thing, judging by how many people complain about it, I think it's a case of playing to their audience.

Exactly. I mean, you're pink, so your some sort of girl right? or maybe your gay, because pink is a feminine color. How is it punitive to be pink?

Or maybe they were looking for a color that stands out that isn't already in use or too close to another color already in use.

Yellow - division mates

White - you

Green - Friendlies

Red - Enemy

Blue - too close to green

Orange - too close to red

What color would you suggest TKers be?

I thought he got torped by the enemy, turns out it's friendly fire. If you failed to spot a giant [edited]battleship going in front of you. You need to pay more attention.

BTW, you don't have to zoom in to fire torps.

Nailing a friendly with a torp gives me the same shameful cringe reaction as double starting a car with witnesses in hearing range.

for the person who wonders "why was the DD behind the BB?" -  that's a whole other issue.   As a DD main, many is the time I can't get between a BB/CA and the enemy, because the heavier ships insist on brawling.   If a few "heavies" are close enough to be exchanging secondary fire, there's no way I'm getting between them, and, sometimes, it's well nigh impossible to get out from behind the bigger ships if you've relocated a fair bit on the map.

It's for Breast Cancer awareness.

It seems too lightly of a "penalty" since you don't get damage reflected back and all you get is a pink status for a few games that doesn't really change anything

Visible or not, how does knowing they have dealt team damage help you or hurt them?

You're responsible for your torps. Sometimes people get stuck in your blind spot, and get hit by mistake. It's still your fault, but you have a slight excuse.

My biggest pet peeve right now is other players trying to bump, rub, and trade paint with me when I'm trying to be in position to manuever. However, they match my speed and block me from turning safely, or quickly, while also getting shells on me even though I'm spotted while they fire house until they're dead.
