I read a rumour that WG is considering removing team damage from the game.

 

This rumour is what prompted me to make this topic.

Do you think this will be a benefit for the game? or would it make the game worse?

I personally can see benefits and drawback in such a change. But I have yet to make my mind about such a change.

 

After all it will remove the problem with getting a accidental ban for helping a friendly tank back on the treads.

Nor will you suffer for being "motivated" by a teammate to play the way they want.

And artillery will not be able to damage friendly that go danger close.

 

But it will open up for players flip you over, blocking you shots and other bad behaviour.

And there are probably other benefits and drawbacks that I have not seen.

 

So what are your thought about this?

If they keep the damage direction arrow from team mates switched on, then it would become confusing - with a distraction as to where / what was hitting you.

Oh dear, perhaps I've thought of a new way to troll players.

 

Like you, on reflection this could open up worse trolling techniques as you don't see much team damage at higher tiers.

What if; people can't deal damage to their allies but they can still turn blue from shooting at the allies, and get banned for it?

 

If you think it'll encourage blocking...believe me, it makes no difference whatsoever, people will block you until you turn blue from shooting them anyway. The only cases where it would make a difference would be if the blocker is on low enough health to get killed by the ally he's blocking within two shots, and they're often on full hp...

The only problem I have with team damage was the situation the OP mentioned about helping a friendly flipped tank back over, remove friendly collision dmg , keep friendly shot dmg would be ideal for me.

If they remove friendly collision dmg whats gonna stop all the slow tanks from getting a ride from one of the faster tanks

Same thing it did for console. Platoons get in your face, lock you in place. And their arty mate farms mission damage on you without fear of damaging his team mates.

@tankyouverymuch2 - giving you the benefit of the innocent doubt here, but somehow I feel you know already.

 

Prophylactics and lack thereof. 

 

Now why do I know what it means... hmmm feel like I need to go to confession and get absolution.

We left the dark ages behind us, it's ok. :)

(That's not a suggestive smile, though.)

 

Anyway, @topic:

It would dull down the game a lot. Would be like shooters with no teamdamage - just spam grenades everywhere while your team storms in.

That will make it so retarded to fight another tank that has arti cover... now there is atleast a chance that the arti will be very careful not to damage his own team m8, with team damage disabled he can just bomb and only harm the attacker... :sceptic:  It can`t be that hard to code team damage that way that arti gets also punished for team stun and all be good.

Turning off team damage will open up fantastic new ways to troll which can't be easily monitored by an automatic system so will go unpunished.

This discussion thread started off civil and respectable, dipped badly in the middle with debauchery but managed to gain some self respect :teethhappy:
