Since in WoT it was removed and Nobody seems to miss it.

I wonder if they will remove it here as well.

 

During the Savage Battle is was actually Disabled.

And we all know WG like to do Testing like this. :)

Until they removed it from WoT I'd have said to not count on it.

 

Now I am no longer so sure.

Possibly with the introduction of the convoy gamemode.

It'd be kinda bad if some griefer could just tk their own convoy.

 

Then again they could probably just ram convoy ships towards the enemy team to work around that.

I don't see any good reason in favor of keeping the friendly fire.

I don't really care, but removing it will only have good sides.

I am a Noob, but I believe they should keep it. It is teaching me to really be more "map" aware because of implications of bad torp spreads.

I have no idea how long you have been not playing tanks, but do not start them.

My advice is to do christmas tree (if available this year too) for the crew.

Good grief, talk about dumbing down. Just no, it's not needed or called for, yet again pandering to the whim of the odd few that moan about it, the rest of us just get on with it and learn not to do it.  Ooooh it makes me really mad

WoT removed friendly fire, so arty can shoot anywhere now with impunity? Sounds bad.

 

As for this game: Please don't, I want people to think before launching their torps.

Too many specuuuuuul snowflakes out there that launch 4, 6 or 8 kilometer torpedoes at 12+ km. Not counting those that launch torps into a brawl, which can be a high-risk, high-pink move...

I would hope they leave it in, I think the current TK system works quite nicely and there's no need to change it.

I dont care either way if they Remove it to be Honest.

I can Life with Both.

 

I do think the Meta will Change a bit if it gets Removed. As especially long range Torpedo Spam will certainly increase.

 

 

But I disagree that curretn TK Punishment System works well.

Currently what I often see is that People Literally go out of their way to Catch Torps Fired by Friendlies.

In mayn Cases even if these were Launched in an Attempt to Support.

 

I had a BB whcih was going Bow in on an Enemy BB.

Turn Full Broadside to that Enemy BB just to catch my Torpedoes that I launched from behind to kill the Enemy BB.

 

Needless to say he got Citadelled and then went in Chat throwing Insults at me......

 

So no. Current TK System seems to be more Encouraging of trying to make others TK you....

Did you assume for a second that that BB preferred to avoid ramming by risking citadel without even noticing your torps because he thought he would have enough HP to live. Something that your careless fired torps changed. 

 

Belive it or not, there are no sane person that will run on friendly torp on purpose.

 

... Well, there might be some cases in which someone would troll a division mate. :Smile_hiding:

HAHAHAHA

No Mate.

No Offense. But he would not have Rammed that Guy if he had Stayed on Course.

 

Logic actually Should tell you net. Cause the Enemy was Driving Angled to him.

Otherwise my Guy would not have needed to turn to get my Torps and Show Broadside to the Enemy BB.

 

Needless to say. He could have turned the other way so he at least stays Angled....

 

 

And Mate.

No offense.

But I had People Follow my Air Dropped Torps with their DD and Drive into them FROM BEHIND.

I had a DD which Torped which was somewhat in front of me and going into the other Direction. And which then. After he saw me Throwing Torpedoes. Did a 180 Degree Turn to Drive Straight Broadside into my Torpedoes.

Then learn to not launch torp in range of your team... I never saw such behavior and it is clear that I have far more battles than you... What you try to convince me is incomprehensive.

Yes.

Way waaay more Battles.

But not exactly the Stats to tell me to Pay Attention to Teammates really.

 

 

 

So Maybe instead others learn to not be a **** and not Drive into Friendly Torps on Purpose :)

 

But you have Convinced me.

I think they Should Remove Friendly Fire.

 

And if its just to Annoy People like you and stop people like you from just constantly telling whoever that its their own fault without even listening to their case properly :)

Arty can still stun and will get punished for it if done repeatedly.

 

On topic:

 

It has some benefits if removed. (They did remove TD from secondaries and fires or flooding can't start from TD either.)

It's the ship that gets hit that takes the biggest "punishment" from it. (losing HP and so on.)

 

If I fire a salvo of torps and 3/4 goes into a friendly. That means I've just wasted good torps for nothing and I now have to wait a full reload with nothing to show for it. It's better for me to shoot at the enemy than my own team, right? If I run into a team-mate the biggest loss from that is losing speed and being a sitting duck, not that I lost 25 HP over it.

 

If I choose to shoot up my team-mate then why should they be punished for it? I will waste ammo , give away my posision and perhaps lose the game. Why sould the other guy lose his HP on top of that? He did no wrong.

 

Me turning pink for it is OK, but the other guy shouldn't suffer for it. It should be "How many times did he hit team-mates?" rather than "How much damage did he do?". I hit a friendly with one 105 mm shell for 300 so he died once and I got pink for that. I've would have gotten the same punishment for putting a full torpsalvo into him. It's the intent that should be punished, not the outcome.

 

As someone said, I'm fine with both systems but I feel that nothing would be lost to the game if TD was removed.

Rarely did I see a more selfish player trying to justify their ignorance.
