so as the title says somebody on my team was stupid ( again) , I guess saying " Hey ******* watch out my torpedoes are coming at you if you keep going that way" to a ship that just came around an island in reality means " hurry up so you can get hit by a friendly torpedo"

Pretty much.

I have a serious problem with Campbeltown's torps. They are so slow but go for so long that once I launched them into a smokescreen & a full minute passes. Which was enough time for my team to push up & eat them. :fish_aqua:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGH!

Whenever I see an ally launch their 5 km torps from the very back of the map into the middle of the friendly formation when there are no red ships within 10 km, I like to run into them on purpose so they can come to the forums and complain.

If you knew there were friendlies inbound, why'd you fire?

Think one of the rules in this game is that "you own your ordinance". 

We've all torp'ed friendlies before. What you do is apologize, work off your pink (if you did enough damage to merit it), and play on.

If I recall correctly, this isn't the first time this has happened to you.

If so, has it not entered your mind by this time that maybe the problem is centred in YOUR decision about when to launch and in what direction?

This happens to you alot.

You need to start rethinking who is really the stupid one in all these encounters.

On the other hand -don’t. Your thinking is quite defective on the matter.

Get someone else to rethink it for you.

What goes around an island, comes around an island.  

You own your own.

Rule 1: No such thing as friendly fire..

 

I sailed into a teammates swarm of torps the other week in my Iowa, I was busy dueling with a Yamato and a cruiser. He warned me but I was paying no attention to the chat window. Not really expecting to get torpedoed from behind when you have 3 'friendlies' there.

People here always love to blame the person who sent them, but the reality is both parties share fault, with the context of the situation deciding who's more at fault.  

Players on this game by and large, have the situational awareness of a person who's had their eyes, ears, and nervous system stabbed out without certain... "mods".

OP, I'd have to see how it happened to know if you were the one being stupid or it was the person who ate them.  Alot of trolls exist on this game, who will go out of their way to eat the torpedoes  on purpose even when they shouldn't have been in actual danger.  My divmates and I have all experienced it a couple times at least.

Seeing the logic on these forums though do make me very, VERY glad most of you have no say in car insurance or accident reports surrounding it rofl.

"Alot of trolls" aren't even at fault as you need to launch them where it's possible for them to troll you by eating them & that is always on you for launching them.

If you aren't on discord w/a div mate in agreement that it is safe despite them (& ONLY them) being in front of you... it's all on the 1 who launches...every time.

A wise man once spoke about this very thing. He was a bit of an outkast, so you may not have heard these words before:

1. Don't pull the thang out, unless you plan to bang.

2. Don't even bang unless you plan to hit something. 

Heed these words.

No, it means NOTHING! Because he isn't responsible for dodging, or not dodging, your torps. It IS your responsibility not to put your torps anywhere that they can hit him. So really, what the title should be, is:

"I WAS STUPID AND IRRESPONSIBLE, AGAIN, AND SHOT TORPS OFF WHEN I SHOULDN'T HAVE, AGAIN, AND HIT A TEAM MATE, AGAIN. AND NOW I WANT TO BLAME HIM!"

Because you, and you alone, are responsible for all the ordinance you fire in any match.

Stick to PVE, that's really all I can tell you.  I can't be asked to expend any more than that on someone like you.

The only person that is responsible for your ordinance going down range is the person launching or firing it.
