I've only played a dozen or so matches in this mode...needless to say, some of them were ruined by the presence of teamdamage.

 

I dunno whose bright idea it was to enable teamdamage in this mode, but whoever you are, I hate you...

 

As if it weren't bad enough dealing with one-sided plays by your team, and rentalings in their free tier 10 tanks, there just had to be some sort of icing on the cake, eh?

 

I only played it because of the Sakura Shower decal, but it wasn't worth it. There's very few places where you can put that decal and have it look good...primarily due to the rectangular white background, which makes about as much sense as salt in coffee. I ended up putting it on the Maus' roof, since you only get 3, which means you can't mirror them on each side of a tank...

 

All in all, a very "meh" experience. When everything goes fine, the mode's fun. However...Murphy's law is always lurking around the corner...ready to strike when you least expect it. It's so easy for everything to go wrong very quickly.

we just run into a toon that killed everyone in their team and then drowned them selfs.

''Team damge is realistic and good for the game'' i remember someone saying to me at somepoint.

 

looks fine to me if the idea is to have enemy team win without fighting, the arty managed to track the drowning OBJ and therfor got the kill. everyone else got killed by their team as the toon started teamkilling right from the start. we were not able to get to them in time to save the poor souls from the evil toon.

It;s a bug that apparently was reported, they're fixing it

Wait, it's a bug? For real?

 

 

The bugs keep getting better and better! I swear! :D

 

What's next? Suddenly artillery shells do full damage even if they land 15m from the target? :D

Tbh, when I first started playing it. I 100% forgot it had TD on. So I was circling a 227 in my BC 25. As we needed him gone before his flank came to help. And I was aiming with sniper mode at times. On one of the shots an EBR 105 came and magically died from my shell. I did see him come on the map, but my brain was on non-team damage mode still to hold my fire. 

 

Tho that said. Besides my first TK in ages... I've only ever seen one more in all my rounds so far. And hardly any Team Damage in general. Had a 183 platoon that splashed a few targets. But that's about it.

Of course there should be FF, it's in all competitive modes and adds risk/rewards elements to the gameplay, punish the abusers not the system.

I am sorry, Timeless brawl is NOT a competitive mode. It's a 7-v-7 random battle with Tier X tonks.

Competitive team modes are those where you can pick your own full team. Clan Wars, Strongholds, you know... stuff that eliminates the possibility of John Q Taxpayer with 5K battles and 1800 personal rating coming in their rental tanks to fight against their own team.
