ticks me off when i do 98% of the total damage and some jerk comes in and gets the kill shot. i would torp them also (which i do in ranked and non ranked matches) 

The above was posted this morning in another thread by someone I have to assume is hiding behind a troll account. As I have zero respect for cowards I'll not name nor address him directly. For the rest of you...

 I shoot at low HP ships and "kill steal" because...

I don't trust your aim.

I don't trust RNG.

I don't trust your ISP.

I don't trust your electric company.

I don't trust your game install.

 Get the picture yet?

 I have been the bottom tier DD under 100hp getting double dev strikes to win. I have been the bottom tier BB everyone assumed was same as dead delete a radar cruiser to save the DD that ends up carrying. I've been that cruiser on single digit HP who pops the radar that seals the fate of the red team. I've been the BB burned from full HP by a pair of HE spamming cruisers who shouldn't even be alive. I've been the BB who got dev struck by a DD that simply wouldn't die.

 If you're the type of player who agrees with the quoted statement, you're a very stupid player. You only hurt my team on the few occasions I end up stuck with you. You're a potential disaster for every team you're a part of.

 I don't care if a player is my Divmate, a CC, or the top player across all servers. If I have the time to see the target, get my guns on it, aim, and land shells, then they didn't kill it as fast as I would like.

I don't trust any of the 12 players on my team, yes even myself, and you shouldn't either!

I agree, I do the same usually. Too many times I've seen that DD or RN CL get away with less than a thousand HP and then stay hidden and make you regret it later. The RN CLs are the worst, because you almost had them, and then the next time you see them they're back at half HP.

Unless you're doing it on purpose, not a problem. Often it's five people lighting them up, and complete RNG who actually gets the kill. The only time I don't do it is if I'm in a BB and someone else is already on them. My broadside is a bit wasted on that if he's almost certainly going to kill him anyway, and that potential is usually better used elsewhere. But that's about the only time I don't unload.

For the same reason if I'm in a BB and see a target that only has an overpen worth of HP left I unload the full broadside. Yeah I only need one hit not to bounce, but I would rather throw 12 shells and citadel him than shoot 3 and have the one that hits bounce because reasons. Almost only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades and atomic bombs. You almost killed him, but that's the same as saying you didn't kill him.

Yeah, I'll get annoyed by this, but it's Fine. It evens out in the long run too.

I don't trust people who start new topics by quoting dead topics without context or author. looks sneaky to me.

Yep, I had 4 bounces on a broadside Emerald from a Yorck. I can't explain it but he was flat broadside, it happens. Getting somebody knocked out is the goal, it doesn't matter who does it. I'd rather win than know I got a frag so I can feel self-important in my room alone with nobody else around so I can brag to myself and give myself high fives. Good lord the mentality.

Edit: Forgot to add that I am getting fat in my mom's basement now from reading the OP.

Honestly, how much more context do you need when the quote actually states the quoted is a self admitted salt spreading teamkiller? As usual you display an incredible lack of intelligent thought. But.. GJ on figuring out how to use a keyboard.

BTW, the original topic quoted is alive and well, even on the front page of the forum as I type... Better luck next time sunshine.

You can 'steal' my kills all day long as long as it is a red one !

ONE EXCEPTION !

Example operation Narai. I usually go after the red transports and ANNOUNCE that usually as the first message in the chat.

I have kinda a 99% success rate there so i do not need nor ask for backup. The CV side is a different story.

About 1 in 3 games someone joins up with me, after Fort and DD are dead, to mop up the transport kills and XP.

That ticks me off !!

NOT for the 'kill' and 'XP' steal but because it means he abandoned the team to do a job that was clearly taken care off.

The post that the OP quoted is only 3 hours old.  Hardly a dead topic.

I can. There aren't any names or labels on red ships. Grow up, deal with it, and don't hate the player; hate the game.

then you have even less reason to create a fresh topic if one exists, with the original author's statement, to which you can reply. Your behaviour in creating  a new topic here, is questionable.

Thanks, that kind of confirmed my impression. the OP has even less excuse for this topic.

 I created the topic because A) I could, and B) I figured someone like you would whine about it.

 Speaking of questionable.. hows that W/R coming since GZ is no longer point and click?

Trust nobody unless they've earned it. 

//And no, I don't even trust your ability to judge that either... who are you, BTW?

 You're aware that wows-numbers shows the truth? CV's down, everything else just as average as you always were.

I passed on killing a very low hp bb (I was in a bb as well) today as a ca should have been able to finish it off. When I looked back our ca was toast  and the bb went dark before I could turn my guns. When he became visible again he had repaired and it took a few more salvos to get him. We still won but it made it too close for comfort.

I love being stat shamed. Makes my day. Not sure what this has to do with your very strange OP, unless digging yourself into an ever deeper hole is the theme.

If I take 99% of a ship's HP and you have a kill shot, please take it. I'd rather you kill it and remove guns from the game than me get any sort of selfish sense of entitlement to whatever pitiful HP it has left. Please take my kills.

Especially when I'm in a slower reloading BB, I'd rather someone finish it off so I dont waste a salvo

Red is dead! I want them removed from the game with extreme prejudice, if you have the shot take it.

When something that just sank me is near death and permanently burning/flooding from something I did in extremis and I ask for it to be left to die, compliance would be appreciated. If my damage counter stops before it's dead, I will let you know so you can secure the kill.
