Why am I the one that is penalized when my torps were launched to a clear zone and an "team mate" sails right in and gets hit by one?

Because you hit your teammate who sailed in front of you and your "clear zone".

You are responsible for your ordnance until it expires and it is not the friendly ships job to watch for your torpedoes. If your torps cannot pass a friendly ship no matter how they move check fire.

For a real world example you have the Battle of Sunda Strait when the Huston and the Perth sailed right into a Japanese invasion fleet and its escort.

This is the Japanese damage,

1 minelayer sunk,
4 troopships sunk or grounded,[3]
1 cruiser damaged,
10 killed,
37 wounded[4]

The only damage the Huston and Perth caused was to the cruiser the rest was from Japanese torpedoes that missed. Friendly fire isn't friendly and incoming fire has the right of way.

It's only a "clear zone" if there's no possibility of a friendly getting in the way of your torps.

Torps move way faster than any ship in the game, so it's not like ships come out of nowhere to run into your torps.

Welcome to the boards, your question IS valid, however the responses are correct.  The First Rule of Torps is" "NEVER launch torps when an ally MIGHT drive into them."  If you violate this rule, you take the chance of becoming a 'Pink Warrior."  Also, know that we ALL have worn the pink at times, stuff happens.

If the zone was clear, it means there was no enemy so you should not be shooting torpedoes anyway.

  • Confirm contact
  • Be in range
  • Be in arming range
  • Know what is around you
  • Make sure it is clear

You fire it, you own it. Simple as that.

Welcome to Torping 101, first rule in Torping is

  1. There is no such thing is a clear zone if you hit some one (friendly included) if the ocean was clear then no one would get hit "its CLEAR now I hit you lol"
  2. Your torps have range just like the gas in your car. Ran out of gas o well torps will sink.
  3. More then likely (except IJN DDs) your guns are faster and more effective then your torps, use them but if your aim with guns suck, *pray*
  4. if you want to torp, then you hit the speed boost and you be the first one to face the red fleet and you throw torps. IF you see a friendly in front then you hold back.

Wear your pink, only Torpers can rock the pink in style. Just be careful and pay attention of your friendlies when shooting torps. Laters!

Don't forget, just because IJN DD Guns "suck" does not mean they should not be used. Watching a Torpedo Boat only torpedo me in CQC and miss and then stares at me for 30 seconds is very very sad.

Clearly the zone wasnt clear. You hit a ally ship. You fired the torps, so its your fault, the system is working. Dont launch torps from behind ally ships.
