Doesn't it also go faster if you actively deal damage to enemies or is that merely the implication of don't hit any additional allies?

 

Never actually turned blue by accident myself... not even that time I grazed a light at the start of Lakeville who had a seizure while driving and slipped his tank into the lake and the game attributed the death to me as a teamkill :D

It's complicated.  I have a temper and frequently deal damage to team members who park in front of me, or push me out of cover.  And ... how long to recover?  It depends.  I think it's a combination of games played AND damage dealt.  Plus, obviously, you mustn't do any more team damage.

 

Oddly, I just served a 24 hour ban for my third offence, came back, played one game as blue and then back to normal.  So ... who knows what the rules are.

Until you get your enemy to friendly damage ratio down far enough. Could be 1 battle, could be 10. It depends on how much you took off when you landed on him.

No

It's mostly a correlation between damage/friendly damage, the more damage you do to the enemy, (without shooting allies of course) the less games you'll need to go back to normal.

Until you flush it out with dmg done to enemy. Number of games is irrelevant, you can be blue for 25 games with 0 dmg  in 13 90 spotting , or you can flush it out with several 2-3k dmg games.

Does the punishment blue still allow folk to slay you or is that only for active TK in that battle?

AFAIK they can kill you as long as you're blue. I personally never do, because if they shoot another player they get banned and that punishes them, if I shoot them my team starts with a tank down and that punishes me.

I never shoot blue players, because I don't know why they turned blue.  Be kinda stupid to wipe out a team mamber who accidentally TKd someone - effectively losing 2 team members.

If you damage your teammates often then you will turn blue, if not then only number of destroyed tanks will be blue...so you are team killerrrrrrrrrrrr.

You only turn visibly blue during that game. The other games you look normal, even though your name is blue. Don't worry too much about it. If you play normally, it shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for that :)

 

I got blue a few battles ago because I shot one of my team players who tried repeatedly to push me on Abbey, even tried to get me into the water.  I flew in the town and he pursued me.  I shot him to show some displeasure and he TK'd me.  I don't even know he did that in the first place, never seen him before (or I don't remember).  Oh well, as long as I don't get banned, I'm fine.

I think the bans are cumulative.  I've only been banned twice - once for an hour, and once for a day - and in both cases I'm sure it was a totting-up process - like - 'this is the thrid time in a week that you shot a team-mate - take some time off to cool down'.  Took the time off, came back and tried to behave.  Not always successful though ...

I've only been banned for an hour once. Last time I turned blue was last week, when for some reason a T34 decided the best way to spend his time was to push me in my ISU-152 around, so I two-shot the fool and went on to do 4.5k. Other than that I've mostly turned blue from horsing around with mates, especially during clan games. Apart from the obvious "don't shoot the green tanks", as long as you're not a serial tk'er or do it on purpose often, it's not a big deal. And I'm glad they didn't turn team damage off for that ISU game yet, cause losing it because a T-34 wants to have a laugh would be way more frustrating than being blue for a few games.

I've resisted temptation for as long as possible, but it just has to be done:
