Something that gets on my wick is the compensation for team damage. Why is it the the compensation never covers your costs? 

 

I was just playing a game in my Easy 90 when I got hit by friendly arty and my driver was killed. Obviously a scout in the enemy dase without a driver is a dead duck and thats without support from your own arty so I had to repais the driver.

 

I carry only large first aid kits so putting my driver back together cost 20,000 credits but the compensation I received was just 1,436 credits.

 

I don't understand why team damage isn't paid for in full by the guy doing the damage?  How about it wargaming can you crank up the compo?

Its taking into account "fair wear and tear", as insurance companies would say.

Dead/Injured crew are not counted as damage to vehicle I guess.

Check your insurance policy. Does it have a clause relating to industrial injuries? ;)

 

 

But I agree it is annoying not to get decent compensation, especially as the offender gets fined more that the victim receives.

Because you got a false sense of entitlement.

Mostly to prevent any abuse of the system and encouraging people not to actively move into harm's way knowing that there will be no economic penalty. The idea being you encourage people to consider carefully what engagement they run in to and avoid getting in the way of your teammate's guns!

Funny coming from someone resorting to deliberate team killing himself...

 

I wasn't talking about team killing but you seem to have an axe to grind. Try and stay on topic or open a thread of your own.

That seems like a reasonable reply I had not considered that. Still frustrating though.

That's understandable, but I hope you can also now see the danger of receiving a full refund too!

No axe to grind, but seeing your name I recalled a thread some time ago where another forumite got team killed by you on purpose. Should those players get full compensation as well? What about loss of potential income? What about the perpetrators? Should their fines get increased, perhaps the full amount of credits earned that game (provided it is higher than the standard penalty)?

 

Speaking of opening a thread, you really did not need to as this topic has been discussed plenty of times before and eekeeboo's explanation, while certainly insightful and spot on, has been provided many times before. A simple search on your end would have sufficed.

But it does.

 

In fact if you run premium it gives you 50% extra.

 

But only repair costs.

so you buy a consumable at half price then get TK after using it - do you expect to get full price back? You did not NEED to use that consumable you CHOSE to.

TLDR if you are looking for sympathy it's in the dictionary betwixt sh** and syphilis.

It doesn't happen often (if it does you are doing something wrong) and it's not a that big sum in the larger scheme so why would this even be an issue?

Just watched a video by Wotartynoobs in which said eam damage was being switched off in 1.4. can't find this in patch notes or any mention of it here. I assume this is wrong.

Juts a couple of days ago I was shot twice by a teammate in a T49 derp, I was in my T-55A, he did 1300 damage to me, I was compensated 20k but repairs cost 15k + small repair cuz my turret got damaged, profit for me, but not a ban for him :(

The fine for doing team damage is too small for people to care about it. The only deterring factor is wheter you get banned or not. One idea is to use a cumulative sytem for fines to punish repeat offenders, which includes arty.

Yeah that makes sense. After all its always the player's own fault if he gets artied by a friendly clicker.

You know, this is one of those things in the game that promote griefing very well. As long as you have premium account you don't have anything to lose, but the other guy takes 50% hp and wow, -20k credits without doing anything for him! Cheers.

 

I always try to resort to reports, but when the guy gets obnoxious (e.g. pushing me around because his tank is big to compensate for his manhood, because someone pushed him in another game) I just track them in the middle of fire and watch them die. The cost, I don't care, but he gets as little as possible for being a troll kiddo.

 

Now some people pull it to the extreme, straight away TKing a friendly and making up for it in 1-2 games at T10 but hey, anything that helps the community stay toxic, amirite?
