Stop Kill Stealing!

Everybody please stop stealing each others' kills.  Just a few minutes ago, I was about 2 km from a BB.  I launched a full salvo of torpedoes, that were practically touching the target, and would've all hit.  Then some fool decided he'd rather get the kill, and shelled him to death.  If you see somebody has fought for control over another ship and put effort into a kill, don't steal their reward.  That's enough for my PSA.  Enjoy your evenings.

Please revisit this thread when you have about 2000 battles and have seen the result of people holding shots on near dead opponents.

This, there is no kill stealing in a team game. However there is kill securing.

If I'm shooting at a target, I want it dead. If you can kill it before me, go right ahead, that way I can go over to the next target sooner and we increase our chances of winning.

OP, please be on the red team.

It is called teamwork.
Your teammates are helping you sink opposing ships, before they sink you or a fellow teammate.
Be grateful.  
Do the same for your own teammates when the opportunity presents itself.
Good luck, have fun.  :-)

I spared a Shimakaze the other month as the Cleveland that was shooting at it had done all the damage, the DD was 99% dead but suddenly dropped smoke, dodged the shells, torpedoed the nub Cleveland and escaped, then went on to sink 2 of our BBs costing us the win. 

 

 Never again..

No such thing as kill stealing. To even think that way is selfish in a team-oriented game.

And let the enemy live another 3 seconds and possibly get off one last game-changing salvo? I don't think so.

You can't kill steal because no one owns a kill. It all evens out.

In this game, no one really cares about kill/death ratios. Instead, they care about win rates and damage (possibly more than they should). 

But asking people to not ‘kill secure’ is going to be ineffective- as the replies to this thread have shown. 

Min those curcumstances, I would still fire - if anything to kill the target faster so that it doesn’t get one last salvo off and kill you. One red ship dead and Two green ships alive is much, much better for winning the game than one dead red and one dead green who managed to get the kill...

Pope_shizzle said it best a couple of weeks ago. I will use his words here and hope he doesn't mind.

"If you killed it, then it would be your kill, If you didn't, then it wasn't."

You cannot stop something that does not exist. 1st & foremost, this is a team game & you shoot until the last enemy ship is sunk or the game is over. 2nd, you have no right to claim a ship is yours no matter how much damage you have done or will do.

As a BB main I have had many, many, many ships I've "almost sunk" & someone else applies the coup de gras while my guns were reloading.

kills account for alot in the PR algorithm, so sometimes ill hold my shot till someone weakens the enemy down to a point where im guaranteed the kill just to boost my stats a little more

In a team oriented game, no kill belongs to anyone to start with...

In a team oriented game, kill securing is the fundamental and universal way of playing. It should be practiced from the NOOBS to the not so NOOBs alike. By not adapting this, you will lack the essentials of minimum team play for the game.

My advice is repeat the mantra...

"There is no such thing as kill stealing in a team oriented game"

LOL, your not going to get much sympathy and your team mates would rather have you oriented on winning the match than padding your stats.

There is no such thing as kill stealing.  Expecting people to monitor and determine if you are going to sink a ship before it sinks another is absurd.  Sometimes you get the kill sometimes you don't.

There is no such thing! One gets much more credit for damage caused than sinking low HP cripples. If it bothers you that much then get with the program and pick off low HP foes as frequently as you can.

Then you can get a swelled head and brag here on the forum about your accomplishments.
