Divmate gets two cits, he's down to 5 HP and bumps into me while trying to escape. Dies because he is so low.

I'm pink through no fault of mine.

This needs adjustment. Way too sensitive.

Your pink cause you caused his death, what penalty did you get, 2 games or 3 for being pink.  Sometimes you have to just suck it up not cry on  the forums and just do your penalty.

WG will address the new system but you have to give it time instead of crying all the time.  5 HP not only were you a team killer you were also a kill stealer.

The only time, It effected me was in Co-Op mode. That was the only time I have been pink with the new system. AFK pinks only happens when you don;t make it back into the match in time. IF you do make it back well your not pink. So far for me the new system doesn't effect me. Meanwhile I seen less people going into my torps when I am in a torp ship which is nice. Maybe it has effected other by putting the fear of Pinky into them. As for me, nothing major so far. *knock on cyber wood*

Got a point there... Yes the new system needs a few tweaks. Give it time to collate data for WG to see problem areas and address them...Yes I'm sure your peeved bring a replay to the table next time or just get over it. But in no way does it nor should it affect your gameplay! :cap_yes:

You are not pink because of the new rules. It has been causing the last point of damage for some time. In the situation you described you would have been pink before the change and likely for more matches.

When 2 ships on the same team collide..they both scratch paint..WG warns both ships they caused DMG to the other.

I doubt that turned you pink. IT was most likely the straw that broke the camels back. Oft times ships friendly secondary fire each other without even knowing it. Which starts the buildup in the "getting_pink_jbs" script thats running in the background

Secondary batteries have been fixed, a few updates ago, so that they no longer count towards pink status. Or was I not reading properly?

The person I quoted mentioned secondary batteries dealing damage. " Oft times ships friendly secondary fire each other without even knowing it. Which starts the buildup in the "getting_pink_jbs" script thats running in the background" is what he said.

I was just asking for clarification on that specifically, because I thought secondary fire no longer count towards pink status.

Yes your correct secondaries do not hurt your own team anymore.

That's nothing new, you always get the pink tutu for a tk, regardless of the amount of damage.

Your damage caused your teammates death even though the damage you did was neglible.  But thats not the result of the new system.  The old system would have done the same thing.

If pink does not affect gameplay, the new penalty system will not change the "objectionable behavior" it is supposed to eliminate.

Just to clarify, pink is just a warning. Orange is the punishment status that does affect gameplay. Also it is not supposed to eliminate all the objectionable behaviors but curb them instead.

I did 10 hp worth of damage to a DM, killed him and turned pink, he knew he was dead so no issue there, no issue with working off the penalty either, not even a forum post about it.

2 games and it did not bother me. Just that it should be improved to avoid pink by bumping and causing 5HP damage. That is just ridiculous.

Kill stealer? It was in coop - yes right. He bumped cause his rudder was shot.

There is no such thing as kill stealing. It is kill securing.

It doesn't. You misread the comments.

Obviously you haven't read any of my posts. I have been in this Forum for 3 years. Please point to crying which I don't do. Just asking for adjustments that are obviously needed. If it bothers you , then move along to the next thread.

Then I guess you should know, with all the pink threads that have been here since the patch came in, and you knew that you killed him, so regardless, it had nothing to do with being to sensitive, you turned pink for the TK, oh and you kill steal from the red team

The secondary battery has not been able to cause damage to friendlies for quite some time. Only player controlled weapons are able to cause team damage. While it was not intentional the OP did take the last point of health which is automatic pink status. For the average player that short period of being pink is nothing. The people that have to worry are the ones that constantly cause team like the all to common "SOME MORON DROVE INTO MY TORPS" posters.
