@WarGamming

 

Anyone know how to reach out and report player who grief another when they are pink? I always seem to come across at least on [edited] that just side swipes a pink player the whole match. Not only making themselves useless but also racking up extra pink time for the poor SOB who happen to pull that guy. Big surprise he is doing this kind of crap. I have screenshots but not a lot of hope WG does anything about this, but maybe I guess. 

Any info is appreciated, as I think to improve the game we should get these players out of there.

You can submit tickets to support, but I would removed the jerks name from your post as you will be punished for naming and shaming.

The particular, butt hole I am talking about is named: [JOHN] Atleast_Im_not_pink. Big surprise he is doing this kind of crap. I have screenshots but not a lot of hope WG does anything about this, but maybe I guess.

One of the BIG reasons when I go pink I  immediately go to Tier One Co Op till I ain't

This here.  Make sure you have a replay or some sort of proof of said griefer.

Don't report it. They call it "naming and shaming". The auto pilot system exists because they don't care and will say it is "working as intended".
Some people do it because in tanks a TK'er turns a different color like the pinkies and you can kill them freely without penalty.

They don't want people reporting incidental/accidental events but what the OP describes is exactly what should be reported. He will need the replay to do this.

They won't do anything. The system is entirely automated. A complete waste of time.

WG very obviously wants griefing and TKing and team damage, which is why they have never done the sensible thing and removed all that. Sad, one of the many ways in which decisions by WG reduce playability and chase off people who might otherwise stay.

They do care and they do look into the problem, they will not tell anyone what action was taken against an account. Now you know.

@fang_cloudeye, if WG cared, there would be no team damage at all. But they keep it in the game, even though it has already been removed from operations. If you have the power to change something but don't, it is because you want it that way. It's really that simple.

Try and not lump all Pink players into the TK column... some its just bad luck or their teammates doing dumb stuff that turns them pink.  I have had good amount of pink players carrying teams....

That actually makes no sense to me to say there would be no team damage if they cared, seems the opposite to me.  Last thing I want is to be spam torped and fired on continuously by enemies that don't have to worry about hitting team mates.  Since I turn pink about every 750 battles, or so (and they are always due to a poor choice on my part) I have no issue with the protection that team damage affords me.

All you have to do is play two CO-op games and the pink will go away. Also, the odds of running into that player again are slim. I only very occasionally see anyone from the forums in the game.

Oh yeah. I watched Star Blazers, Ultraman, Gi Joe, Battle of the Planets. Yeah, all the silly cartoons. Star Blazers was by far my favorite as it was a serial story line that I like better than any of the others.

I still have many of them on DVD, along with many obscure old series. Classics never grow old, unlike the poorly done stuff you get today.

Hell yes, report it.  Do it in the karma system Report->Unsportsmanlike Conduct.

You can also file a ticket, but be aware of two things.  First, a single instance does not a pattern make.  You will have to document at least two and preferable more occasions where the guy has done it, blatantly.  Second, you will never know if your report was effective or just thrown in the round file. 

Turn on Replays.

No, the solution to the OP's problem isn't removing  all team damage.  The proper solution would be to remove friendly RAM damage, at least when a pink player is involved.

Team damage is a factor in battle and it is something you must work with. I have used my DD's to move into an enemy formation and watched them torp each other to death while trying to get me. You have to learn to use that to your advantage when you can. The other thing is that team damage keeps people from just spamming torps and gun fire in some vain attempt to do damage, use skill rather than pull the trigger and hope for the best.

When it is that egregious they will.

I agree 100%, ExploratorOne.  I was in a operation where some teammates were constantly shooting at each other, because they could not damage each other nor get punished for it.  It was monstrously annoying.

Team damage should remain, but the solution to the OP's griefing problem is to simply remove friendly ramming damage.  Problem solved.
