When you load in, get ready to rain death and destruction down upon the red team and you realize it's your own team who might be your most dangerous adversary.

Spoiler

We did completely steam roll the Enemy and the pink patrol did do a lot of work.

They were giving you the pink eye. :Smile_coin:

Accidentally bump into 1 of them and all hell will break loose about team damage and reporting you.  Tread wisely in the opposite direction or let them pass you first.

I wonder if there is a German word for "simultaneously funny and awkward" 

I never noticed before that you only see pink on your own team, but it makes sense.  I wonder if the MM algorithm takes pink players into account when forming teams.

Except they can barely damage you now; a full spread of torps from that gearing will do what? 1000? Maybe 1200 damage? Meanwhile he'll be nuked in the process.

Which will make it all the more difficult for the team to win, or even do damage due to being outnumbered.

Yes *BUT* who loses more: you, who lives and gets to at least fire their guns at the enemy for awhile OR the moron pinky who gets sent back to port with nothing but not 1, but *2* repair bills? You can only keep up that behavior for so long, especially at T10, before you'd run out of cash right fast (to say nothing of the fact attempting a TK while pink extends your Pink time by a HUGE factor, like jumping from 15 games to work it off to 50, I know, I've had it happen against the damn bots).

To be honest, when dealing with a teamkiller clan/division, I just want out of the match as soon as possible.  Why prolong the suffering?

I do it from time to time; if I'm the last guy left and overwhelming odds/out of planes nearly, I'll burn/torp myself down. Why give the reds a free damage farm? Plus you don't go pink for that.

Weak sauce. Never give up, never surrender!

Die Schadenfreude (glee at another's misfortune) would apply to the Red team upon learning how many pinks there were on the Green team.

I had a match with three last night. I think it is from people pushing to hard complete the North Cape campaign.

Basically, the difference is, is denying some random player who you don't know, and may not care, some damage, worth your own lower score by not using that last strike on an enemy?

My outlook is, the red team is there to feed me credits/XP, and I'm going to wring every last drop out of them I can. I couldn't care less whether or not some random dude gets more rewards, but the enemy team screws me out of enough as it is, and that affects me personally. I'm not going to voluntarily help them screw me further.

Schadenfreude, I think is the closest.

Because some of them might be on a ship-winning mission that requires them to do so. Fight to the end; use your torps on someone else.

Except I don't think you actually get to see this. And the thing about teamkillers is that they can be incredibly aggressive to the enemy too, so if they YOLO they might actually each take a few down with them.

As I said, I'm vindictive. I take the, "I may lose, but you won't win," approach. I may lose the match/ship, but you won't win the XP on me.

That's just it though. You've already lost the match and the ship, you're just robbing yourself of extra rewards for the trifecta lol.

It's like guys who resist arrest even when there's no hope of escape. I mean sure, if that elbow to the cop's midriff or breaking his nose is worth the possible retaliation and extra jail time.... 

Different strokes for different folks I guess.

I think you should look up what vindictive means...

And at any rate, I know that the reds want that 60k Damage on me, more than anything else, and the whole point of PLAYING is to stop that from happening at all times, while trying to get damage on them. If I reach a point in a match where my ability to dispense damage is likely to be 0 or near zero, then my sole objective is to deny the enemy damage on me, which, if I'm in a CV, means scuttling. I'd rather stop you from getting 60k damage on my Essex than get the maybe 5-10k damage on you from that last torp wave, if I even have enough to form a squad that can GET hits.

Fair enough.

Most pinky’s are players just like you and me who made a mistake usually with Torps, play this game long enough you to will be pink

That's one way to look at it, another is, "I may lose but you won't win." I supposed I'm a bit more vindictive.

Its also a realist perspective.  One can earn greater rewards by ending the match sooner and starting a new one than by dragging out the definite loss.

I hadn't thought of that. My situation with playtime generally is such that I have time for 2-3 matches. Saving a few extra minutes doesn't give me enough time for a whole extra match.
