Without even saying a word or map ping this guy just backed off and stared at my tanks' [edited]for a full 10 seconds before TKing me, presumably for taking up the good spot on that ridge, he didn't even have the decency to tell me why. 

 

But hey lets remove allchat to reduce toxicity but leave in all the oneshot gimmicks and the arty, no way those cause any of that toxicity. 

 

And speaking of toxicity inducing behaviour, this bloody guy: Posted Image

 

Got afraid of a single t8 tank to the point where he backed off his full hp tier 10 med and pressed F7, before shooting a single HE shell worth 50 damage and dying. Like, if you're playing tier 10 and you're that clueless why the hell are you even bothering? He must be shoveling money towards WG in order to afford that BS.

250 battles?


 

Reroll?


Could it be a grudge from your real/original account or perhaps he thought you might be a banned player with a new account?

​I was once shot by a KV-2 because his platoon mate said he'd buy him a bear.

Just wait for the FV4005 speed buff so you have people with 1750 stopping entire teams from moving because they managed to get up the hill on Mines

I presume he didn't get banned, cos you know he only shot you once.....

 

Friendly fire should be removed full stop, what good does it do? A-holes like that would never get the opportunity. 

 

At a guess I'd reckon it's more the 3 marks, plus probably XVM, he (or she) probably is one of the many bobs that hate good players because they cheat/fire gold/get blessed MM/use OP tanks etc. or whatever excuse placates them for being crap and then whine when a good player doesn't carry them. I'd reckon previous match a unicum either shot gold at him or didn't come save him when he was in a stupid position and so next game the frustration is taken out on you.

This seems like an odd reward. I mean, how do you even look after a bear? I imagine it's a lot of upkeep.

It prevents an awful lot of greifing. With the idiots we have in game trolling already if you remove any form of deterrent how will that help?

 

Imagine not being able to give the 40% Jap heavy player a smack in the nose because your TD has taken his favourite red line sniping spot...

Most of the trolling in game like that is those players trying to provoke people into TKing them, in a lot cases nothing happens to them but you'll just get banned or turn blue and they can shoot you.

And removing team damage opens the door for alot of new ways of trolling which cannot be tracked, or retaliated to, like the team damage system can.

 

You can't track pushing, you cant track blocking, you cant track tipping etc etc

 

The best way to deal with trolls at the moment is to ignore them, when they get bored and run away track them in front of an enemy tank and, voila, sweet revenge.

 

Of course, opinions on any matter are always subjective. My experience of trolling in WoT is low, I don't see it often enough to care about it that much, i'm not the victim of it often enough for it to affect me and so IMO the team damage system is working as enough of a deterrent. Maybe its not that, but as it is I see no problem with it.

yeah, ah wgl pro player telling us that the fv183 gun does 1750 damage ...always...looool

 

most of the time its 500 avg. Hell i even had them do ZERO!!! damage. The nerf to He mechanics rly rekked this td. now on occasion u can get alucky hit when it pens but thats about it.  

 

ofc, knowing that there is a 183 waiting can be enough for players not to move there, but that it does so much damage its just one big lie
