Do CV's that torpedo themselves receive team damage?

I only ask because I was getting chummy with a Red CV and in the course of him trying to get me eat a couple of his own torpedo's.

Been waiting to see that.

CVs used to often TK themselves to troll/grief, so WG made it so that they take team damage penalties for doing so.

Yes they take damage. They didnt used to lose points for killing themselves, i had one red cv suicide to save the win once, but rumor has it that’s gone too.

I even seen an episode of the good the bad and the ugly with The mighty Jingles in where a CV torped himself trying to sink a DD. That was funny

Yes they do! I have accidently done so myself by being too close to my target! Torp planes dropped on my right and the target was beside me on my left. Torps hit me first and the ones that missed me hit the target! I have also torped friendlies that moved between my planes and the target just as torps were dropped or were on opposite side of target and got hit by the misses.

They removed the point evasion for all teamkills because you would have teammates killing off low health friendlies to keep the enemy from gaining points from the kill.

Something like this happened to me except I didn't kill myself, I was playing Taiho on North, we were down to 3 or 4 people left and I was going to cap D to secure the win - that's when an Atlanta came around the corner and I dropped with one squadron, one hit him, one hit me, and then I rammed him and survived to take D.

I once saw a CV Torpedo themselves at the start of a match on purpose. The player explained they wanted to take advantage of adrenaline rush. :cap_like:

I've nearly done that, but my torpedobeats were good enough to avoid my own torps!  Sadly, the DD also had good enough torpedobeats-and more torpedoes.

Back during the Sharks vs. Jets episode I was on a team with a player who got the "Use 5 consumables" mission. We had essentially won and he was one short, so he asked me to shoot him so he could repair the damage and complete the mission. Was happy to oblige, as I was in a DD and unlikely to DevStrike him with my Kagero guns...

Once one threatened to do so when the game went badly, I told him to go ahead, he really did...

People do that?
