Can anybody tell me what this means?

shot-19_12.05_03_28.31-0224.jpg.23c85372306f7eee24ea23c649cfc6f4.jpg

I got that message from a friendly Fiji after a Coop game on Two Brothers where I decided to sail up the middle for the lulz in my Vauquelin.

I met an enemy DD and promptly sunk him. I dodged some friendly torps from the Fiji, but then the Fiji started firing on me and wouldn't stop. So I decided to push up further and found an enemy Myoukou and Scharnhorst. I deleted the cruiser but I was unable to torp the BB since my torps were on cooldown, so I did a quickly turned around and found the Fiji again. He continued shooting at me even after he turned pink, then he even tried to torp me but missed (I wanted to slow down and eat his torps but I was too fast). He then got deleted by the Scharnhorst and I died soon after too since I was taking fire the entire time.

So does anybody have any idea what he is trying to say? I have a feeling this could be the beginning of a great quest to find the lost city of Atlantis or something, but I haven't got a faintest idea. :cap_hmm:

1. No idea what that means.

2. That is effin creepy man. Messaging you after the game. 😱

3. Judging from the story, he / she could either be:

     a.  Pissed at you for the KS in the center?

     or

     b. Pissed at you on a previous game and coincidentally bumped into you in co-op? (Random, Ranked, Clan, Ops)

then messaged you out of frustration.

I think this is what the moment when somebody becomes detached from reality looks like. When you call someone "unhinged" its basically referring to the process of removing the hinge that you have so accurately described that player as having  just done.

Also pm me the name so I can watch out for them, because it sounds like the sort of cryptic riddle a serial killer would give 😂

Why is it any different than someone messaging a stranger during the battle? Other than it's probably a more appropriate time to be having a discussion not related to the in-game tactics.

X-Files. *insert X-Files music*

I propose that anyone found guilty of intentionally shooting their team mates after submission of a replay, gets an automatic 30 day ban from the game.

Google Translate is one heck of a psycho-active substance.

My WOT signature bar is testament to that. “My hovercraft is full of eels”.

Let me decode it :

 

1. Don't >> KILL STEAL/Destroy>> my target at >> mid/center >> cap/point

2. He either call you dog or small weak dog. Basically Indonesia way of mocking

3. He need to kill the DD... Maybe for mission or something important/unimportant

or he just need  a kill for mission. DD is easiest to kill for Fiji, when you sink the Myouko he lost another target.

Perhaps. Though him getting angry at me KS'ing is kinda odd considering I took down roughly 80% of the enemy DD's health. :Smile-_tongue:

Can't recall ever having met him before either.

Funnily enough, if you try to submit a replay about intentional TKs, it tells you that WG customer support no longer investigates complaints about damaging allies. Yet it still allows you to submit a ticket. I am very confused. Does submitting a replay do anything then? Or does it do nothing and merely exist as a venting mechanism like Karma? Questions, questions... :cap_hmm:

You know, weird though it sounds, this is probably the most accurate translation.

Who else would understand what confusing and apparently meaningless words mean?

I was gonna reply with something along these lines but you beat me to it :Smile_teethhappy:

I might add though that the guy probably called OP dog and pig (also common Indonesian mockery). Pig in Bahasa is "babi" and it must be somehow translated to "baby" :Smile_trollface:

Many cultures, subcultures and ethnicities use "dog" as insult.

But we all pat and love them.

Humans are weird.
