Okay I am now pink. This screen shot will show you why I am pink. My question is simple: is this a bug or are you serious WG?

I was in my zoomed in targeting mode. I had a Kaiser lined up. Double tapped and BOOM! You have sunk ..... yourself. and incurred a penalty.

Lol I have heard about faulty Russian equipment, designs, or maintenance involving military vehicles. But to include that into your ship is hillarious and little too realistic.

Did your turrets or Torp launchers fire while aimed at your deck, superstructure, or other turrets, or inside hull?

According to the screenshot above, you died due to TK damage (i.e. reflected team damage after getting TK status.)  Check your detail screen and see how much team damage you did (if any.)  If none, submit a ticket.

That implies that he has been causing more than paint scratch damage for some time.

Well that tops me getting 2 games for pinging the superstructure of our Iowa, in my Akizuki.  I was trying to save him from an aggressive rush by a Kagero. Must have caught a mast or something while sinking the DD that rushed him, at just the worst time. Kagero's torps hit, just as the shell hit.

I got the pink lol, for 140hp. But self inflicted wounds are funnier. I did see a DD torp himself a long time back. For whatever reason the torps launched behind him and running in his direction, it was kinda funny as it happened right in front of me. He wasn't pleased either.

 

However did you maybe accidentally torp a teammate who couldn't repair a flood? That would do exactly what you see due to the reflected damage. I lost about 20K today in Ranked after a teamate did a near impossible U turn during an intense fight for the AB cap. I took all the damage in reflection for the torp hit instantly.

I'd honestly like to know the secret on how to flood someone WITHOUT using torpedoes. :cap_hmm:

 

Fire on the other hand, THAT might be a reason. :Smile_hiding:

Ramming, though it doesn't work on allies.

the people that complain the most about being pink almost ALWAYS seem to be guilty of this....

Ramming can cause flooding

That's really odd. I don't see any fines for causing damage to friendly ships. I've heard of players somehow torpedoing themselves, but I've never seen it happen. Do you have a replay? If you don't, try sending a ticket to WG Support. Hopefully they can provide some info on what happened.

Against an ally though?

 

My point is, some folks were mentioning flooding, but OP has no torpedo strikes on anyone unless it doesn't count against allies?  I honestly don't remember.  Last time I TK'd a bot, was a while ago.:Smile_hiding:

All of the "team" damage was on me. It was a two turn pink, I worked it off. But you should NOT be able to sink yourself with your own guns.

AFAIK it only causes flooding when the ramming is between enemy ships, not ramming a friendly.

You can not flood a friendly with a ram.

You don't get a ribbon for torping a friendly, so he COULD have actually been killed by torp/flooding damage that would not show on the screenshot above. It may just be coincidental that the final damage happened while the OP was firing a gun salvo. The Battle Chat screen would have shown this. Other after action screens would show a -1 in the ships sunk or damage totals to the friendly ship. OR this is a wierd glitch.

When pink, don't you get double reflected damage? If so, a torp hit on a friendly will easily sink a DD.

If I had hit a friendly with a shot or torpedo then the above screen show me being docked silver and xps. But to be clear NO I did not hit a friendly in the game with either a shell or a torp. I did not even trade paint in this match.

I did not post this about being pink, I was posting the SS because a. I found it a riot that I sunk my self with gun fire, and b. to ask how it is even possible to do it.

All the logical explanations based on known game mechanics require you to have hit a friendly some how. If that didn't happen,  (and you are correct the screen doesn't show anything indicating it did) then this is indeed some sort of game glitch, possibly introduced inadvertently with the new patch. Maybe the new penalty system detected you THINKING about shooting teammate and reacted to that:Smile_teethhappy:

Shame since it looks like you were doing fairly well up until that point.

Someone once posted about how they sank themselves with their own torpedoes, but I think it was Tash or Uda?  Either way, it's very rare.

 

 

Well, least THIS didn't happen.  From my understanding...

...this CANNOT happen.  And yet, here is the screenie.

 

I was trying to torpedo a DD that got in the harbor and was charging past me, and that was the result.  I've torpedoed myself a few times in the past trying to get a pesky ship in the harbor but nothing happened...:cap_hmm:
