I've been seeing a lot more pinks lately... had a random match just recently where there were 5 of them... all on my team(none of them me tyvm)... zero on oppositions side. It has been increasing noticeably lately. That or my eyes are bleeding from too much wows... :cap_wander:

Anyone else seeing a weird uptick in pinkery or is it just me?

You can't see pinks on the other team.

Not even during the matchup load-in screen? I never knew that. Danke. :Smile_honoring:

They've made it so easy to go pink now, it's ridiculous. Pink used to just be for team KILLERS, but now if an ally catches just a few if your shells you'll turn pink for a few matches.

No more than usual, but as is known, "pink happens".    I got a 2 game pink the other day because a friendly Mass decided it was a great idea to charge into a contested point....he ate all my torpedoes.    :fish_palm:

Ah, no.

 

You have to do consistent damage to allies over time, or outright sink one, aside from being "afk", which is actually the real problem. Getting DC'd or the client/server crashing gets you pink, too.

Unless it was one HE shell & a fire.

Doesn't it fill you with great ease when you see that many on your team?

I'm sorry, that is incorrect. You've got to do a certain amount of damage to them... either all at once or collectively through a match. You don't need to sink anyone, just let them catch one torp or one good AP shell.

Holy crap, I've always seen pinks on one team mainly. I'm wondering if it actually exposes shenannigins in the match maker, proof it steers you to 50% winrate? Why else would pinks end up on the same team all the time? TKing will cause you to lose more often, so then they get put on a stronger team when they're both waiting in the matchmaking monitor. 

You can't see pinks on the other team, heh.

Shivering in terror or antici....pation. I think we actually won the match so whatever pinked them they were well behaved for me. 

As far as I recall the <fml> folks are all gentlemen and scholars.../cough

True that. Me and another cruiser double teamed a battleship. Launched a spread of torps that the enemy BB ate. Unfortunately one missed and somehow nicked my impromptu buddy. In my defense he wasn't in the line of fire when I launched. He didn't get sunk or have any hard feelings but I got pinked for it.

We all do our best to avoid being pink but honestly? If I go pink due to an accident I nolonger care. It's happened, like, a total of 3 to 5 times and it's just not worth it to worry about it.

You were at fault. Never launch torps that could possibly " nick" anyone on your team. A well deserved pink for you.

The BB was to my 1 o'clock. The Cruiser was to my 5. Thought he was well behind me. Not he was right next to the guy and I launched regardless.

Ah, no. You're the one who is incorrect. I haven't been pink in well over a year, my shells stray and hit people who cross in front of me all the time, because Im zoomed in and dont see them.

 

Yes, a certain percent will do it, you're wrong as to what it is, however. You've either got to A) Sink them, B) Really hurt them, or C) Consistently damage your allies.

 

Since you're complaining about it, clearly you hit your allies all the time. The problem isn't the system, the problem is you.
