Scuttling your ship

There needs to be an option to scuttle my ship. 

 

Especially if after 3 minutes into the match, all five destroyers in my team have died because they were loltorped by the enemy DDs while tunnelvisioning/mindlessly firing at the battleships on the enemy team in smoke. 

 

Might as well detonate my own magazines rather than try to play through that resulting mess.

To be fair, USN torpedoes have really low detection ranges so it's hard to dodge them, especially when they are blind fired to weird places.

Seconded.

 

Let's have a "Detonate my own magazines" button.

 

For sanity's sake at least......

Test confirmed that you can torp yourself without TK penalty. 

Disclaimer. Just because you can doesn't mean you should. I do not recommend it. I do recommend some junk food every now and then just coz it tastes good.

Mods stated that scuttling yourself is against the rules so pls don't do that on live server...

I never would. I even went so far as to sink the bot cv before I did it just to not annoy anyone on the PTS.

Best way to scuttle yourself is to ram your ship into the enemies, that way not only your ship is sunk but you also take an enemy with you.

Rather, add a "Surrender" option 

Make it available when 50% match time has passed and own team has less 1/3 ships remaining to avoid abuse. Enemy team +20% EXP and credits however or -20% of own team EXP and credits

Or rather, fight until the end. Honestly if my "allies" intentionally ( or not) feed, I switch from competing objective to farming damage. Gotta compensate my service costs somehome :angry:

How about an option to not click battle?

 

Would save you the trouble of repair bills from scuttling the ship.

Just sail into the enemy fleet, then someone can make use of your carcass, I've done this before....

 

Or you can shoot at planes, or hunt a DD or a cruiser, to get a few extra points.... Not much else to choose from really, esp when potato team decides to lemming train to nowhere, so they can stuff the match deliberately, I had that happen yesterday, a tier 7/8 match would you believe, full of nagatos, hippers, Gneisenaus & a chapyev.... all went lemming from the start, immediately got corralled & blown to kingdom come.....:facepalm:

No, just no. If you have a button like that you'll get the same "scumbag" behaviour that arties do in WoT. People will scuttle just to deny someone a kill/damage. People are trolls, do not give them the tools to troll.

So many people triggered lol. 

 

I had a losing streak of games all with 100k+ damage last night, was mighty annoyed. That is, without playing like a damage farming scrub.

But what if the function also causes the potatoes to scuttle at the start of the battle, resulting in half your team dying without engagement because they find it funny?
