hi everybody,

 

i had a game where one of the last remaining ships obviously commited suicide, but how did he do that? he also lost a kill, before dying he had 3 kills. he wasn't pink, not before, not after dying. i just figured it out because i got solo warrior and thought why are there just 3 remaining ships and i get solo warrior as i did not kill anymore ships.

 

look at that screenshot:

If he was pink already then doing damage to allies reflects onto him - if this reflected damage is enough to sink him he counts as killing himself

If you shoot upwards the projectiles will come down back onto you.

NOT!

No idea what happened there. I would very much want to know myself.

Hmm and it's an Iron Duke so it can't be a carrier who torped themselves or someone accidentally running into their own torps (which I have seen on the Russian DDs very rarely since they can almost outrun their own torps if they're not careful)

Shoots teammate with HE -> turns pink -> Teammate keeps burning, but damage is reflected -> profitsuicide

Doesn't matter as shooting a teammate can easily cause you to become pink.

 

Also it is afaik not possible to see whether an opponent is pink or not.

I believe that if you are a repeat offender doing damage to teammates the game blows you up. I have seen that happen once.

When the game is loading you can hover the Mouse over the names in the enemy teamlist and you can then see if they are pink or not.

Think you can see that if you move the mouse over their name in the loading screen, name is pink then :cap_hmm:

Think you cant set fires/floods to teammates anymore. Wasnt that removed because people wouldnt repair floods and kill their teammates because of it? :cap_haloween:

good point. i checked his stats, he has a great personal rating, looks like he is a very good player. Alos looks like a 2nd account as he has only around 700 games played and an average kills at 1.48. I don't think he was pink. I just asked in ingame chat about it, he is offline, so it can take a while.

I think you can see enemies being pink by bringing team table and then hovering over enemy names.

(as far as I know) He can become pink and suicide by inflicting further dmg to team mates in one game.

I think the only way to know if an enemy player is pink is during the loading screen team lists and if you run your cursor over their names it will display who are the pink players, not that I have ever found that useful information 

 

Edit: actually even in battle if you pull up the team lists and run your cursor over the players names it shows who is pink

Ah well, sometimes it's nice to check which team has more of those Pinky Pies among them... one has to know where possible help may come from ^^

Aaaaawww? That was my favorite thing to do if I got torped in the back by a cruiser trying to sink a 15 km distant enemy with 6 km torps. :Smile_sad:

Like said: he could have been pink from the beginning. Indeed you don't see pink enemy ships. And could have TK-ed (accidentally or not). What I don't understand is why you got solo warrior. OC I don't mean that out of jealousy just the reward requires winning while 4 enemies remain. (killing them or winning by cap). At the moment of the incident the game wasn't finished yet. Reds had enough points not to be pushed to 0 by that alleged TK.

You gotta press up up down down left right left right a b buttons on your keyboard. Your ship will then self-detonate.

i think you get solo warrior if you fight alone against 4 remaining ships and win, thats it.
