Hi Folks,  I just started playing World of Warships a day ago and I think it is fantastic.  Like many of you, I suspect, I grew up making models of and reading about battles these ships were engaged in.  I wanted to post this apology for all of us knot-heads out there who, after playing their first 100 games or so, recognize that they pulled some serious blunders in game and sometimes against members of their own team!  Although I believe I have been fortunate, so far, to avoid torpedoing my own team, I somehow managed to fire point nearly blank with a Battleship having 6 Main Turrets at a member of my own team.  ?????   At the time, I was convinced it was an enemy ship and laughably, he survived due to my poor Marksmanship.  Yes, I am a newbie but just wanted to say that there are probably a good number of newbies who are truly sorry for these transgressions and if it makes anyone feel better, just consider how easy we are to sink!  :)    Anyway, apologies for newbie blunders and WOW!!!  what a great game.

Welcome to the game!

All of us have damaged team mates a time or ten. It happens. Good on you for coming here and introducing yourself. There are a lot of players here willing to answer questions or offer advice and suggestions should you ever post up questions. My signature has some suggestions I put into a post some time ago, if interested.

Here's hoping you continue to enjoy the game and be a part of the community for a long time!

Respects,

Am

Almost happened to me today in a tier IX battle. I didn't see a teammate and dropped torps. Thankfully I was able to warn him and he reacted in time, but it still could have been a teamkill. We all have to learn somewhere. This is my favorite quote: "A smart man learns from his own mistakes, but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others."

There it is pard, you aint alone. (I've been pink a few times myself) Keep track of where your teammates are visually and on the minimap and when it doubt, hold fire.

Have fun! And may your opponents aim be as true as a politician's promise.

It's good you respect the social needs of others.

Remember, it's just a game.  Don't take it all too seriously.  And if you encounter someone who does...  well..  you apologized your best.

Some folks are just born angry.

If someone Team-Kills me, I just say, "You owe me a beer".

Welcome, and make sure to turn on the “alternative interface” mode in the settings. It shows the name and health of all ships. This is an incredibly important feature which is ridiculously turned off by default. This will answer your question as to why all of a sudden everyone on your team starts shooting 1 particular ship out of many... the answer is he is low health and they are trying to kill him!

Welcome to the game!!!

First three tiers are learning tiers...so just about anything goes short of someone INTENTIONALLY TKing someone else.  T4 and T5, I pretty much give a LOT of slack for those players as well.  It's not until you get to T6 that I might get a bit salty.  But as someone who has been pink several times, crap happens.  We learn from the mistake, and move on.  Hell, just the other day...after nigh 8000 games, I found myself firing on a friendly by accident (tunnel vision and the stress of the engagement).  Totally my bad.  

Have fun!  Don't sweat the mistakes you make along the way.  Learn from them and press on.

I watched a TK tonight, a chung moo fired his torps down a channel to kill the conq, which he did and killed our conq, who was close by, well to be honest he apologised for it and it was a game changer in regards to what he did for the team as our conq was very low health anyway and the enemy one wasn't, so no biggy really, we won, he turned pink, and was sorry for it by his reaction in chat. it was an accident

You’ve played over 150 battles in a day? Heh, I guess you have found a home. That’s about a month for me, probably two. Anyway, welcome aboard and I hope your enjoyment continues to grow. Good hunting.
