>offenders name< driving a 1357 shot me on purpose, after that he got spotted on purpose again and sat behind me while i was in a bush unspotted, the result was people who shot at him hit me instead and died. this is an issue where the system doesnt record it as a team damage. and its an abuse of mechanics and griefing/harassment i attached 2 battle replays one mine and another one from a guy from the enemy team clearly showing that i was unspotted at that time. and a screenshot from a guy of the enemy team that shot me, clearly saying that i was unspotted and that he was aiming at the offender.

Once again this is something that the system DOESNT record and your action is needed as its something that he can do multiple times and get away with it

^ticket to the CS

WG doesn't really give an edited about this sort of thing. Just like it doesn't really give an edited about illegal mods. It's all about the money.

Good luck, emeraldweed. I predict cs support will tell you to use the in game report feature.

So the friendly 13-57 got spotted on purpose then rolled right behind your hiding bush using you as an invisible shield and getting you nailed by enemies shooting at him? Where's the team damage in that? He got you killed allright, duck move granted, bu if you take this to CS i'm afraid they'll just laugh back at you, honestly.

Would be fun if support actually dealt with him/her/it ... moves like that are pure trolling to ruin your game :/

i guess he was pissed that i ''took his bush''. still abusing game mechanics to get someone in your team killed should be a ban-able offence. I have no idea how you guys fail to see that. it was on purpose, nothing to do with mistake/lack of awareness

This happens more than you think, I made so many threads about it, well maybe two but still. pushing, blocking. gosh darn some baboons need to be banned for life.

Sorry if my previous post was not clear enough - i think you are basically right, as he intentionally got you killed, which should by all means get him punished.

But what i meant to point out is that since the enemy did the actual shooting and the "friendly" offender did not cause direct damage to you during that move, he was way clear of WG's automated system (as you mentioned in the OP) and i doubt the CS will do anything but "graciously" dismiss your ticket on grounds such "the automated system is working as intended so you should rest assured, blah-blah..." or something else along these lines. 

Best just blacklist the guy and move on, in my opinion.

Blacklist, and make sure to shoot once at the start of every battle you meet them in.

 

He should indeedbe banned for that.

 

As should all the other baboons who do it, one of my pet peeves with this game.

 

Spotting away nicely in a bush, Steve in his IS-7 and Roger in his E-100 try to sit next to you, get spotted and you are the one who loses half your HP...

Actually for me, in that kind of situation (when you provide the replay and timestamp of the incident) they reply that while they cannot give details they will handle it appropriately and they thank me for making the report. Although there being no direct pushing or blocking involved this specific incident might be a tougher question, since that kind of thing happens just with idiots actually thinking such ideas valid tactics (using an ally as a shield, trying to jostle in a crowd to get shots in, etc).

Well, that is what OP says. The enemy died after having shot at them.

And that's why I leave when there is a friendly light camping and "spotting" behind or next to me. Even more so if he moves forward and back behind again or fires on targets. Been splashed by arty and taken damage meant for him to many times to stick around for that. If they push etc it's def not worth sticking around for regardless. That and having 2 lights at the same bush usually is not ideal anyway in terms of intel.
