With Frontline I got to play for the first time (I don't know if it was available in other modes) battles on WoT without friendly fire.  Quite an interesting experience.  It has reduced the number of grief from friendly fire.  

I was thinking if it would have been a positive move to have friendly fire turned off in random battles too.  

The positive things are obvious.  

Negative, I can think of people using auto aim more and thus not trying to learn how to aim.   At least at some level.

I can't think of any other negative right now.

 

Your input?

No! Friendly fire is not a problem,

you know what is?

People who block you, park in front of your gun, push you out of cover and in frond of enemy guns, or down a cliff, or into water.

If you want to troll a teammate, there are a lot of ways to do it, without shooting him.

Disabling FF won't solve anything.

That is another benefit to Frontline. More space equals less of that.

I think that FF has to be taken into consideration by the trend, not from one game...

 

FF is a problem for both the players who shoot a lot of tanks , and the player who is getting shot...

they said they are testing some features in FR mode and seeing how it works. One of them is friendly fire so it might be added to all modes( I hope it happens) for two reasons: No1) you fire your gun and as soon as you do some friend gets in your shot and you hit friendly

No2) some guy sees you are in a position that he thinks belongs to him so he shoots you twice with no penalty

I think the existence of friendly fire adds a bit more depth to the game at very little cost (without adding unnecessary complexity). It forces you to watch where you shoot and sometimes calls on you to make a decision, whether or not to shoot.

Somethimes you can use a live enemy tank as a shield in brawl situations. That would become a lot less effective if other enemies could just shoot without the risk of damaging a friendlies.

Besides that it adds a layer of difficulty when to many tanks try to fight from location, like corner fights with 3+ vehicles trying to fight around the same corner without actually pushing, which I think is a good thing.

 

In terms of grief I think it´s a non issue. Lots of shooters have FF, and if they don´t have it active on guns, you can still be grenaded by friendlies or run over by friendly vehicles (hello H&G :teethhappy:). In comparison to that you´re fairly safe in WoT imo. Plus griefers gonna grief, with or without ff.

I find any that i do is down to someone going in front of me when I line up a shot. I always apologize.....

 

But if people cannot take a simple apology, then screw em.

That is axiomatically wrong.  Obviously removing friendly fire would remove the griefing caused by people putting two shots into at the start of a game etc.  Yes, some griefers will find other ways to grief.  But the vast majority of team damage is spur of the moment butt hurt.  And that would be instantly removed.

 

I get you think hyperbole will make your point more valid.  It does not.
