I saw someone killed himself in battle. How was this technically possible?

Only two ways as far as I know.

1. CV who targets themselves.

2. Cause enough damage to friendly ships that the damage is reflected back onto you thanks to the anti team killing system. This will register as a self kill.

I guess that must be #2 as it was an Algerie

The ability to self scuttle your ship would be sorta cool, but far too open to abuse if no penalty.

There are too many people who would load into a battle, notice team lineup, and sink immediately.

But they are still more honest than that one type of player who remains AFK when ships hit the fan.

I had one battle where an AFK player survived a losing battle undamaged. The battle was about 15 mins long & that AFK player was an IJN DD plus no CV.

Yup. This was very obvious in WoT where you would have people drowning themselves or throwing themselves off a cliff.

CV players do it when their conscience catches up with them.

Usually they only do it a) by accident, or b) Because they can't do anything in the match and choose suicide instead.

But in OP's case, it was an Algerie, so Algerie probably got team damage reflected back on him.

I would only do it mid-game, if I saw dumb team mates throw the game away by lemming train to one side, therefore giving the enemy a whole side of the map for free,  or if they decide to huddle together in base cap, or the back edge of the map to protect their precious paint, because they are too scared in a battleship to take some damage...

So, I would support euthenasia in a hopeless battle when you have hopeless team mates...

I just sail towards the middle and shout to the other team, "my team is being useless. Put me out of my misery please."
