In a few games at the very start i find my ship being targeted by my own teams torpedoes. There are no enemy in sight as its the very start of the game. What the hell is going on with this stupidity? Anyone else finding this?

Because players are players, they don't take note of friendly fire or the range of their torpedoes.

Your best option is to stay away from them, especially those carrying torpedoes. An alternate option is to report them via in-game report system.

Silly public players think Japanese torpedoes are 24km range on their low & mid tier ship. Confirm they gonna ruin the battle.... silly pubbie.... :sceptic:

easy fix - don't follow the school of fishes that all go one way.

Be a merchant raider on the unmanned flank - no one over there to team damage you then ;)

Then you encounter the enemy fleet and got sunk so fast before you can even say help! :trollface:

only DD can do it

but you aren't afraid of friendly torpedo if you're a DD

 

btw, sometimes friendly torpedo looks like intended to hit you

once I have seen an ally launch torpedo towards me when we're capping

and the enemies are on the other side of the map, covered by islands

Yep, I know the feeling and pain. I'd died few times because team mate torped from the back for no reason. 

If you're Cruiser or DD, try to move away from the horde.. Not so sure with BB since I'm not fond with them.. not yet.

 

Cheers,

L.S

I tried that tactic - err, the whole dam enemy force went there too. Wasn't a long game for me.

In DDs, choose either game play style...

 

U-boat style or US SS style.

 

The former centres around many DD but with the torpedo officer on the OBTs being trigger happy, that's the gamble that you have to take.

 

The US SS style requires a DD to be a lone hunter in the big expense of the sea. You're left to your own devices to outwit, outplay and out detect the enemy that you meet

Yes, you have [content removed] Kuma players thinking their torps have a heep of range. So they fire them when your in front of them already.


Total disregard for team, I'd wish I can TK these players without penalty.

General insults. Warning issued.

There are a lot of muppets on this server who have to test fire their torps before starting out.

 

They are reported as soon as it happens!

I've never understood the "test firing" of guns and/or Torps right at the start.. It's not like they're not going to work..

People testfiring guns are probably those alt tabbing back in.

 

Test firing torps, though...yeah. 

 

Many people don't had the sense to look at "Torpedo Range" at first.

It's understandable - just like how in tanks you probably don't even know what the difference between AP/APCR/HE does in the first few games.

There are some people in their Japanese destroyer who said to himself at the start of the match: "oh looks it is a big fat American battleship at the starboard side, lets kill them!!!" "Oh wait, why we turned pink?"

its annoying as i think the key to winning is to stick together and focus fire. The destroyers provide the AA fire and disrupt the enemy formation with torpedoes. But then idiots shoot my cruiser in the back when we have no enemy even spotted. Dont get me wrong i have accidentally torped a friendly once. But he was hidden behind an enemy.
