Was sceptical at first when this was removed, but on balance I think it was a good move. But there is one scenario where I wish there still was team damage.

 

One tactic with the E25 is to get right up close and personal with a heavy. But his team mates can now shoot away freely and it doesn't matter if they hit him :angry: So not fair!

I miss team damage more than I thought I would. It could be abused, sure, but not shooting your own team was part of the skill. The game just gets more dumbed down all the while.

It does work both ways I suppose, as I can blaze away into a bunch of tanks and it won't matter. So the question is should it?

 

On the subject of team damage I thought it was still a thing for ramming and drowning? But recently a "teammate" pushed me off a cliff but I didn't quite die. So I thought I'd finish myself off so he gets done for team damage, went back up the cliff and jumped off. But no team damage! So I suppose that's been turned off too. Haven't tried it for drowning.

Sure, but remember that we had team damage and an "All"-chat. And it was WG that removed them because it just came in their mind. The reason for removing both were the toxic players that used both against their own teammates.

Yet we still get killed because our crew gets stunned by our own arty....

It was a wise move and is here to stay.
