Learned what pink meant by trying out torpedoes

Fired what looked to be a perfect spread of torpedoes at a ship on my first mission in a torpedo ship, the ship I fired at pivoted so that they all missed but lined up perfectly on the friendly ship behind him.

Yeah I wore the pink a while after that -.-

This is how you learn lol

Some players never make the connection so it happens more often for them.

It can occasionally happen when tunnel visioned. Had to turn hard earlier because a Mahan did just that to my Lion! Happened to me a couple times I got destroyed by a teammate because he fired torps at wrong time and I was too busy fighting to notice until my ship abruptly exploded.

Can make people salty.

OMG a pink thread where the OP isn't blaming the friendly that got hit...nominate this for thread of the year.

OP sounds like he learned from his error which I commend. Good luck and may your torps be painful to the enemy (only).

He was obviously a collaborator and had it coming.

It happens to everyone sooner or later.  I had a harder time with CV torpedoes than I ever did with DD torps.

Lately I've found that the IJN cruisers are more lilely to put torpedoes into teammates than any DD out there.  Had a Atago do two torpedo runs at me trying to get the red BB on my other side.  Credit to the red BB driver for keeping me between themself and the 'friendly' Atago though.

The ratio of how many times I've been hit by team mates as opposed to how many team mates have been hit by me is one of the few stats they don't keep track of anywhere but maybe it should be.

As others have said it happens to everyone at one time or another. Apologize when you do it and shrug it off when it happens to you; no biggie either way especially in the torpedo soup we have to sail through.

Ive learned not to fire torps without considering whats behind them. I have yet to learn that firing them then ducking behind an island would be much cooler if I fired before the torps were firing right into the island :p

I have yet to get the campaign mission to kill 1 ship with torps or even hit one ship with them :p

Out of curiosity, Ive noticed the campaign mission has little completion bars over them if you do the final mission. What do you get for filling up the bar lol

If it doesn't happen sooner or later, you've either never been in the "fog of war" or you "walk on water". 

 

Been there, done that, got the T-Shirt ... in more than 1 color. ... I swear, it jumped in front of me! :Smile_ohmy:

Ya big thing is to make sure to say sorry. Lots of players want to blame the target. Best way to find out how extensive my barracks vocabulary is, is to torpedo me then try to tell me it was my fault. A sorry always gets a " sh*t happens :p" and  a move on.

I have wanted to do that. I fire torps at a red BB and an Allied BB moves closer to the reds than I believed possible or advisable. 

It was my limited thoughts on tactics, not the allied ship movements that caused the team damage.
