Had a great run last night in my new pink ships in ranked.

 

It's so common now, nobody even questions you about it.

 

Anyway, good to be back to normal.

Gotta love those insanely low pink thresholds, one stray shell, or the one time your ally sails in front of you. WG should just make it official, and become an official breast cancer awareness sponsor.

I wonder about the collision threshold... I seem to have minor scrapes more often than I should admit, but no pink yet...Maybe I do enough damage to the enemy, regularly enough, that said threshold is never reached?

Scraps don't cause pink. Only killing a friendly, no matter how low the health.

I thought for sure I was going pink yesterday after I whacked a friendly Isokaze with a torpedo out of my Murmansk.  He popped smoke, I assumed he was gonna sit in it but nope, assumed wrong and he steamed ahead.  One of the first times I've done major friendly damage in a long time but guess I got lucky it wasn't worse.  No pink either but think that's because I knocked out his engine and the enemy took care of that :fishpalm:  Sorry friendly player

 

was actually a decent game if not for that blemish and my abysmal torp runs on the enemy ARP ship lol

The thresholds are insanely low. I did 1 torp hit, for about 10k, on an allied Montana in my Gearing and was pink for a week or two. It also doesn't help when you division with trolls who keep rubbing up on your ship, extending your pink battle count lol

I had a match where my feline gunner killed a friendly. Had a teamie get smacked pretty hard and was disengaging. I saw a red Svet moving in to cook him so i lined up for a shot...cat yanked mouse cable looking for attention (or food) as I let loose a salvo--straight into teamie...and smoked him. Beautiful shot...almost perfect except the ship under the crosshairs wasnt red. Felt horrible.

Several matches later I was in the match that would remove the stain. Had a DD keep driving into me "becuase I was pinky and deserved it" as he stated. End of match I get 5 more games of pink.

Just cleared the pink the other day...not looking to rejoin that elite club.

Nope. Killed a low HP ally via ramming for teh lulz, didn't turn pink.

 

Happened again a few weeks later, I was in my <100 HP Fletcher and got rammed to death by a teammate, he didn't turn pink.

Rammed 2 friendlies in the same match last night and didn't turn pink. 2ndary guns on my BB put a hurting on a friendly that was right beside my ship while engaging enemies and didn't turn pink....

There has got to be more to these stories.

True.

 

Had a wthmoment a week ago in ranked. I smoked a reversing myoko that was low health and being focused on by the enemy. Told them what I was doing in chat but I guess they didn't read it till too late. I started to reverse back into the line of smoke I laid while shooting of my starboard side, well I did until I heard the sounds off a collision. Turns out that myoko threw it in drive and plowed into my port side, unfortunately before we could get separated the myoko became a reef.

 

I was pretty hot thinking I would be pink for my part in sinking a friendly. Never happened though.

I've accidentally shot teammates twice since the new policy took effect. Both times it didn't kill them. I dealt maybe 1-2k damage through the superstructure while expecting the shot to arc over the friendly. Both times I saw a warning in chat, but didn't turn pink. This is far worse than any accidental paint scraping could possibly be, so I'm pretty sure ramming isn't going to turn you pink within limits of reason.
