About time! Today I was in a bush with my Bulldog GF and teammate P. Victoria rammed into me, cause he probably didn't see me at first. Okay, happens, then he shot me because of that, pushed me out of the bush and guess how good game I had after that?

Completely and totally? So, facehugging some enemy while SPGs drop shells on him is a valid tactic then?

Oh, and does that also involve self-inflicted HE damage?

I am a bit worried that this will just lead to those people abusing the physics system instead (blocking, pushing, etc.), which is MUCH harder to detect for an automated system.

Can you still shoot blue (teamkiller) tanks ? Disabling that is a terrible idea.

I thought removing friendly fire would remove team killers

Could WG finally be waking up out of their Milking-the-player-their-money-Sleep? dam, could be a good change.. Now i wonder what will happen with all the blocking 5 year olds as i cant shoot them anymore.

Right move, but as some said this can lead to some other issues like trolling and blocking shots without any punishment, but we shall see about that. If only you re-enabled the All chat, while it was toxic at times, game was much more fun to play and I actually felt like you play against other people.

so let me see if I get this. Shooting friendlies results in no damage. However, if you do it several times, you will turn blue. When you're blue, friendlies can damage and kill you? Sounds awesome!

Yes, please dont make this a SPG stealth nerf where you cant safely shoot if a enemy tank is within 20m of your target. We do have guns with 0.72 dispersion afterall...

Oh, and a compliment for WG for carefully monitoring feedback on their changes. You know who you are ;)

You can still push other people around, maybe off a cliff or on their roof? Both results in teamkills without needing to fire a single shot

I can understand the reasoning behind the introduction of this new feature, but I still do not agree with it. It dumbs down the game too much. What I am happy to hear though is that arty does still get penalized for shooting allies and that trolling arties is no longer possible.

Trolls will abuse this for sure, but the thing is that physics abuse is bannable offense. Just report it to customer support and they will act on it. What to remember though is that the physics abuse has to be unprovoked. So if you insult another player, push them or whatnot, and they start pushing you, you just can't run to customer support with tears in your eyes and demand the other player should get banned. If only people would understand that before reporting something. My condolences for CS reps who will have a load of people coming to whine to them in coming months.

Yes, now i can finally go camp / do passive spotting with my scouts without gettin shot by dumbass teammates who dont understand passive spotting....

Binocs, camo net, full camo and both view range skills maxed out on crew - camping often works better than active spotting

Some players think that lights should be within spitting distance of enemies at all times and go berserk when they see a light passive scouting for a few seconds. That is prob what happened.
