Doing quite well on the Polish map........light tank drunk driver turns his crate over.#

 

I do the honourable thing, so I tootles over and tips him back over. Ten seconds later he's reduced to a flaming wreck. 20 seconds later I'm the same thanks to a sneaky TD

 

Chivalry whilst honourable does you no favours :facepalm:

On a selective basis, it does help a teammate in trouble and your team win. You just need to consider the consequences carefully just like every decision you make while playing.

see flipped ally, short summary what to ask yourself;

 

-can i help him without taking dmg myself? if likely to take dmg then ignore

-how long does it take to reach him? if taking long and said guy hasnt been useful for the team in any way? then just ignore

-am i able to flip him back for sure? if not then ignore

Well, I commend you!

I've helped some one before and they went on to carry the game to a win. Sometimes you get the rough or the smooth, this time you got the rough.

I remember trying to flip a guy back, on Minsk with M40/43.
I almost managed to, but while i tried, i pushed him out from behind the building.

He got spotted and killed by someone from the park, then i followed suit.
 

Regardless, i always try and flip them back, because i know how bad it is to sit out a battle.

Yup you've gotten judge it. I had an elc 90 the other day on his side not 25m away from me, but to go help him would have resulted in pain for me, even though he was safe. Thankfully we communicated in chat and he understood

Chivalry in WoT?

 

No such thing. There's no space for chivalry in a game focused on the ground.

 

In the air (aircraft) then yes. I would see it even as mandatory.

You have no way to know if he will be useful or not but as others already pointed out it hardly can fire backwards if you weight correctly the situatio.

I always helped and I will do sometimes they win the game sometimes just meatshield but in most cases they have use :) and never forget you can be in their situation anytime and it would be nice if someone comes over to help

You should always help your team if it's safe to do so. It's stupid not to as that's an extra gun in the game. If it's not safe to do then they'll just have to wait.

Btw I noticed that when victory is a matter of high rush rating flipped comrades are less a priority :trollface:

You should try. The only advice I can give is be careful when and where you do it. I've turned blue from trying to help an ally. My stupid fault but there you go.

I now have a mental image of you continuously flipping over the aircraft of your teammates [1] in mid-air. :teethhappy:

 

[1] Are there human teammates in World of Warplanes, as in: more than 1 player in a battle at any given time?

Helping out a teammate who's in trouble is not "chivalry", it's just good manners (something the internet desperately needs).

Then again, if a teammate flips one has to consider where they are, who's closer to them, and if he's in an exposed position or if it's safe to go help.

It depends on whether you do the right thing because it seems right to you to do so, or, you do it expecting some type of remuneration. 

Both being different motives, one being always rewarding, the other maybe. Life is seen by many as an investment these days, imho, a very sad state of affairs.

It doesn't really matter what, I always try to help if I see a team mate is flipped over, far or close, danger or not, it really makes me feel good and is part of the teamplay, however you are right if for example he is already being shot and will soon die then ignore, I also go in to save perma tracked team mates too..

But you know what?
Once on airfield map on the little hill where heavies usually go, I was flipped over, behind that hill that is between us and the enemies, but is safe since that hill is a cover, and heavy tanks fight fight from both sides of that hill, I swear team mates were all around me, I was in front of them 5 meters, behind the safe cover, keep asking for help and nobody bothered to just give me a little push, I was honestly amazed, like really? I am in front of you, you guys keep passing by to my left and right even avoiding to crush into my tank yet not helping? That was just one of those cases, and it happens very often but still there r some who r very kind and come for help

But I myself will never stop trying to help, it makes me feel like a hero, I will even fight and provide a cover if necessary DO OR DIE ;P

It's nice to help out now and then

 

....needed help a few times myself...

 

I hate it when you can't get to them without getting creamed and the gun is waving about
