Is intentionally getting killed in a CV against the rules, or...

...is that just fine. No names, but I just played against a guy in a Midway who literally full speed drove to the middle of the map. It ended predictably.

He's played over 200 games in the ship, surviving 17 of them. 17/200 is what... 8.5%? So this isn't his first rodeo. Stats are similar for the rest of the CV ships I've looked at, and we all know CV doesn't statistically die in 91% of their games, no matter how bad they are.

If they outlawed suicides,  they'd probably end up banning half the players.

Farming potential damage?  No rules against suicide ships in the game.

Maybe?

Easier ways to do that though. Ones that don’t screw over your team.

Can be consider botting / throwing games.

17 survive out of 200 ? Most likely a bot

Tier-10 CV, Midway.
If an objective is to receive damage to complete one of the European Destroyer Event directives, it is difficult to think of a better way to set up a target that will absorb damage longer than a DD and attract as much or more attention from opposing team's ordnance.  :Smile_teethhappy:

Not how I would've done it.  But, I guess they're in a hurry?  :cap_rambo:

@Sou1forge, this wouldn't happen to be a clanless player who's tag ends in 30, with a 2 in the middle of it?

If so, please please please send the replay in to WG if you havent already. He's been doing this for a few months, so I'm hoping that if enough reports get sent in, WG will finally ban him.

Sometimes your finger lands on the W key when the planes didn't take off.  The ship goes full ahead while you're thinking "Stupid planes" and sending them up, then taking off.  Now your ship is charging ahead while your mind is elsewhere and can result in sad times.

Not saying the person in question was fully above-board, but saying the "full-ahead into... what?  WHAT?  CRAP!  Grrr :\" 

...does happen from time to time <.<

Wouldn't happen to be something along the lines of "It'sHard......"?

My clanmate and I just played with him on Shatter. He drove straight into B, and was summarily executed by the Red DD and CA.

As a Midway driver, I can safely say....
THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO PLAY THE MIDWAY AND STILL BE PROFITABLE.

The Midway pays through the nose for lost aircraft (except Self Defense Fighters).  So if they are never launched -- no ammo bill.

The Midway has excellent secondaries - so the best strategy is to dive right into the center of the map.  It's also a well armored ship.

Once today, I drove my Midway through the middle of Two Brothers and capped on the other side.

But I got my 30 ribbons for Navel Battles -- that's all I wanted.  Couple flights of HVAR rocket fighters did the trick.

Yeah purposely throwing your ship away is poor form. You can report plays poorly with in game reporting. You can also send in a ticket with a replay.

Or just play a battleship, and don’t be an idiot.

Was just a Co-op game, but I had a round in GkF with 3.3mil PD. Took a big chunk off one of the recent PD tasks.

If you're desperate to get your naval battle ribbons, but don't have the decency to actually play the ship and not ruin your teammates game, run Coop. It's quick, and you'll get your ribbons.

It's a t10 ship. Unless you are running prem camo and premium you are not going to be turning much of a profit in any ship...

I'm not saying it doesn't.

And if you meant Hot Spot instead of Shatter, then I was that DD.

Edit: Yeah checked the roster and you weren't in that game, but that adds fuel to the suspicion that he is doing it most games. We are talking about the same guy.

17/200 Survival rating Midway. If it was once, big deal. 17/200 is not once.

Nope, we were on Shatter. Only played Hotspot once tonight, and there wasn't a CV there. Guess it's a trend for him.

Absolutely.  I was more generously describing the 1/100 battles derp that happens.  This dude sounds like a completely different story.

Co-op players do not deserve to deal with this sort of dumb-@$$-ery any more than random battle players do.

Seriously.

Definitely a botter.  We had a guy a while back that was notoriously doing this even in Co-op in his Missouri to such an extent that he got recognized by a bunch of people on the boards and in the game.  He botted so much, getting into Hall of Fame that he's received prizes from WG.

 

Edit:  I'm trying to remember the dude's name, can't recall it right now, but I'm sure some of you guys remember.  He changed it once or twice to try and hide what he was doing.
