Hmm... Well, I have come to conclusion that random(Ranked is pretty much Random Battles Elite Version) teams are full of randomly selected people across the internet who have the potential of being less-than-savory fellows, am I wrong?

Ouch, just another example of why performance in Ranked should have little to do with the team. For ranked I would make getting TK'd an automatic not lose a star.

This is another reason I don't play ranked, have a really good game but not top experience earner in a loss and you lose a star. However, face plant early in the match, win and you get a star. They really really need to limit, completely removing is impossible, the impact of the team on advancing or not.

I really think that if you TK someone and get reported, you should be pink for much longer.

Played my first ranked this season. Got to about 15 and bagged it. The nice thing is that there are far fewer serious [edited] in random because they are all playing ranked. It is amazing how many players live or die over the outcome of a 20 minute video game match. A lot of folks here really need girlfriends....

So? TK's happen to us all, and at some point, we've all done it to someone else. Life goes on.

 

It's a game, a virtual game, it doesn't matter.

I got tk’d in me last match by a shimmy who proceeded to sit in smoke 9km from a moskva. Guess what happened to him for the loss? I’m partly thinking his torps were meant for me since i was clearly and finally finished in first.

First time out this season in Rank(ed), in two of three games there were players on our team shooting or actively trying to TK team mates.  So I stopped.  Tried it again yesterday.  Turned my GAS meter to zero and just played.  Few good games, a few bad.  But overall about what one would expect as if you were just playing Randoms on the weekend.

There is a good chance we are living in a simulation. Does anything matter?

Eh, they usually have a little bit higher standard of play than Randoms. Infinitesimally small increase in the standard of play maybe, but it's there.

From what I've experienced, i think it's blatantly obvious why they don't have them in the first place.

Simulation makes no difference. The eventual entropic heat death of the universe means than ultimately nothing really matters. Nothing.

I'd love one, but my wife is very much against the idea.

Ranked play is absolutely the worst game play. Hard to have any bit of fun when you have a team full of toxic potatoes but... then again, Ranked isn't about having fun or supporting your team. But it's about making sure that you are the highest rank so you don't lose a star. lol

I've seen some stupidity and several accidents thus far in Ranked but no intentional TKs. I've rarely seen intentional TKs in the years I've played the game. I have seen a few, but no more than a handful (<10).

The last ship I saw accidentally "TK'd" was when we two of us DDs were having a melee brawl in a cap with the other team's DDs and support fire got one of the team ships by mistake. If there had been no supporting fire from the BBs we would not have taken the cap and probably lost two versus one DDs there. There was a TK, sure, but at the end we were up one DD and a double cap to boot. We went on to easily win the game.

Accidents/mistakes happen to even the best. Pink isn't a punishment, it is a warning.

TKs strike me as very unusual, and an intentional TK like you describe makes no sense to me.

It almost sounds as if the match was lost and he gave up, somehow blaming you for something - what?

Did he fire torps backwards to the rear or the side … there has to have been some animus right or wrong - it's too strange.
