Edit: The incident is near the end of the match.

 

This is the first time i've ever experienced a team mate deliberately shoot at me, what should i do?

i cant see a section on ticket creation to report such an issue.

I've attached the replay if you'd like to see the incident.

 

Cheers!

 

p.s. criticism of my gameplay is also welcome :)

Ok easy to see why. The Cleveland was basically very salty and thought you stole his kill when that conquerer was probably about to kill him if you hadn't shot him.

 

First things first. You aim your AP as if you're aiming HE. Remember, waterline for AP if you catch a ship broadside, top of the deck for HE. Secondly, that fight with the Yamato could have been a hell of a lot easier for you. There Yamato sisters (her and the Musashi) have a glaring weakness when angled the way the one fighting you was. Just below the first turret is a little cheek that despite appearances is actually flat at that angle. Now you may be thinking that would just lead to normal pens BUT it actually leads straight through to the Citadel, meaning at the range you were, you could have punched through it and hit several shots straight to the citadel and taken her out in 2-3 salvos.

Notice in the picture its angled just as the Yamato was to you. I've surprised more than a few Yamato sister captains by hitting the spot and suddenly blowing them out the water at close range.

All TK is handled by automated system. WG does not deal with any reports sent to support.

I did not realise this was a weak spot. i thought it would richochet at that angle. In future i will target this spot. Thanks for your advice, and cool picture! :D

The cleveland even called for assistance just before i shot the conqueror.

Ah I can't take credit for the picture, that was found through a google search. Yeah not sure what the cleveland was thinking. Yes he could have taken him out with his IFHE 152mm through the nose of the Conqueror but that was a bit of a gamble on whether the Conq was about to reload or not.

You are not an evil person, but divulging such info you've been a crime in times of war :fish_viking:

that mostly just means you've been lucky - it's relatively rare, but it does happen every now and then.

The automated system takes care of punishment (pink, warning and reflected team damage for first offenders, Orange and confinement to Coop only for repeat offenders).

Well hopefully it also makes Yamato sister players aware that they can't just derp around and expect to tank through everything, so think of it as a PSA for both non-IJN Captains and Yamato sister captains :fish_glass:

I'd suggest that you remove the replay - it's considered 'naming and shaming' in this instance.  I did that a while ago and got a warning from a moderator.
