friendly fire 0.7.2 WTF???

Hello everyone. Since you see that I play in HAMI you may trust me that I do not intend to troll around or getting my teammates killed. 
This patch there is a new interesting feature with friendly fire. In my game I was playing Des Moines, got close to a missouri and, trying to kill off an enemy dd on low hp accidentially hit Missouiri. Well it was not accidential, I knew I would be hitting him but shooting a low hp dd has priority, as missuri was full hp. Well as it happens I dealt 0 damage with my shell on him, but started a fire. Well crap happens, right? (The same can also happen if bbs secondaries hit a friendly ship by chance). Well there was the "stop hurting your allies signal as always". Missouri did not repair, for which I do not blame him. You should never repair 1 single fire, especially since there was a dd nearby. He might have done it to 'punish' me as a lot of random scrubs tend to do, which is dumb aswell, but common in randoms.
Nevertheless, it just so happens that after the 3rd tick (<10 sec!) I became pink already (which sucks but fine so far). At the same time I started to take damage. His fire damage. And not the regular damage, but multiplied. It started with me losing 2k per tick, ending in 22k last tick. And I could not do anyhting. All I did, with full HP, playing as I would play any competitive match, was to set 1 single fire on my teammate which he did not (or could not) repair. End result, I died in less than 15 sec, got the teamkill status and I would even claim my team got one of the best ships in their game killed off for nothing. 
Question 1: WTF Wargaming???
Question 2: Is there any way to do somehting about it?

Answer 1: Working as intended.

Answer 2: Yes. Think about your priorities.

 

Seriously, what do you expect to happen? An automated system can't distinguish between an accidentally set fire, an deliberately set fire or a fire set because of whatever stupid reason the committer comes up with.

 

Btw:

No it can't. Anymore. For several updates now.

The best thing you can do is simply ignore the pink colour, play the game, don't ram your teammates in those games while you are pink, and you will need less battles to remove the teamkiller status. And yeah, there is nothing you can do about it.

I had the same yesterday where I accidentally did 300 dmg (and killed) a Nurnberg that rammed me while I was aiming at the opponent, got pink instantly :Smile_teethhappy:

edit: You must have done it alot to turn pink mid game with 1 fire in seconds.

With 11k games you should know:

  • this is NOT new
  • this has NOTHING to do with the patch
  • Secondaries CANNOT hit fiendlies for months now...
  • it is supposed to work like that
  • do NOT shoot teammates, easiest solution

You should not wave your clan-tag around if you are that clueless...

And the mirrired damage do not occur if you have no team damage done before.

But you got mirrored damage, and that means you already have team damage inflicted before.

 

 

Working as intended.

unusually, but likely theory

 

Hami forced him to open a troll thread, with the reminder to stress that he is in [HAMI], and also to ensure that is no troll thread at all. But then writes utter BS where everybody knows that that is BS from such an experienced playeress and try to play the "victim of the system" card.

 

That's the kind of BS-troll trigger threads that this troll fan club is known for...

Sit down you *edit.

I'm going to tell you a great story...

 

 

 

 

...

 

 

 

Back in the dark ages in World of Tanks... Some guy named Hami from the German forums recruited a shtload of Unikums and forged a competitive Clan.

 

As the *edit he is he named that clan HAMI. Somehow shts went down. 

 

Some day he went to WoWs and did the same...

 

 

 

But I'm not done yet!

 

 

...

 

 

 

... Someday Hami was bragging against OM and posted a screenshot... With some green lines on it, so he exposed that he used the forbidden fruit, just let us name it Cheats....

 

best evening in the German forum EVER.

 

Sorry for my English, I learned it in a shty school and from Finnish Heavy Metal songs.

He may have never done it before, first offenders have much more leeway then serial offenders. 

It also depends how much HP the team mates had left.

 

A while back, i accidently sank two friendly DDs in two consecutive games and didn't get pink. Don't look at me that way, it wasn't on purpose! It's not my fault that Chung Mu and Fletcher are identical with the exception that one has DW torps and the other one doesn't...and Fletcher ain't the one who does. ^^

 

 

Far worse than team damaging potatoes are the DDs on the enemy team.

I watched a YT vid about a OMNI guy who managed to kill 6 (!!!) enemy ships in his DD and didn't get punished! WTF WG?

If i sink 5 enemy s in my DD i usually get reported to kindom come and chat banned on top.

 

A bug or do OMNI guys get more leeway because of the whole clan shenanigans?

Didn't the green hitboxes on the Missouri indicate that you'll probably set him on fire? :Smile_hiding:

Dammit, @Shagga_Felskraehe was faster... :Smile_teethhappy:

Probably not.

Many moons ago, a member of HAMI promised to TK me should i not stop 'spamming the chat'.

I told him to SOD off and 30 seconds later he did infact TK me.

 

So, TK'ing may be indeed a standing order in the clan. :Smile_trollface:

That's sad.

 

WG should lock but archive them, so others can enjoy them...some kind of 'Classics' section.

If naming your clan says something about you, then if you're 100% wrong then what does that say about your clan?

Saw a HAMI on the enemy team a couple of days ago TK'd by a BOTS for hiding behind a rock the whole game. I did laugh. :Smile_Default: And last night had a HAMI on my team die in a CV (by the enemy CV) and cry and insult for the whole game...I did laugh again. :Smile_Default:

Let me tell you a secret: That's what they do. They never, ever delete any threads. They "just" hide them for the normal users. So everything is still out there... but only WG-employees can enjoy those quality threads.
