I have been killed by my own team 6 times today - seriously.

Could it have been something you did? Or rather didn't do? I know there are times I'm very tempted to shoot a team mate for not pulling their weight.

To answer the title. Yes. To answer the OP. That can be many-a-reason behind it.

Wise words one said in general chat:  "MM doesnt suck. MM works as intended. Players dont."

In each case I was in the middle of a fight and I was shot in the back and on 2 occasions they stole 1/2 my HP.  I had one idiot yesterday ram my LT out of cover (sideways) and I got nailed (he/she got arty'd to death since they tracked themselves in the process)

Happens on two occasions.

1) They were being stupid.

2) You were being stupid and running in front of them while they are aiming.

 

I assume you were in a light tank, it is unlikely that these scenarios were to occur if you were playing a light tank properly. Unless you are somehow sitting together with heavies or TDs since only they have the guns to take out half your HP in one hit.

Or 3. They were aiming for a battle buddy  reset.

How about posting a replay so we can have a looksee.

Edit:

Unless that violates naming and shaming

Depends, does OP only play during specials?

 

*Looks at number of games in 60 days*

 

Nvm, I think a different question needs to be asked.


Defender / Chrysler and SoS / BiA compatibility, the two biggest middle fingers to long-time players

 

You want people to stop playing this game? Because that is how you get people to stop playing this game

Well, yes to the question, but even with that in mind, the OP's stats may uh, provide an indication of why they may be getting shot at so much.

So poor stats mean I deserve to get shot by my own team - seriously - that's really going to help my stats and the teams chances aren't they!

Sadly for you, Your stats indicate the team is better off without you on it as you don't contribute to the success of it instead being a detriment to it. If you don't want your stats being a reason to be shot at by your own team I suggest you look at what you can do to improve your gameplay it isn't hard with so many good guides and vids to watch.

There definitely are morons OP. Generally players who think they are better than you because that's all they have, their opinion.

 

It's the blame game. "Oh, here's a light tank who, in my expert opinion, shouldn't be in this bush". Happens all the time.

 

I helped carry a game the other night in my Pan M10. Had to block a player in chat who blamed me because I wouldn't follow him pushing into camping TDs. I mean seriously, who would follow a Type 58, alone, on Live Oaks, pushing into their cap? Apparently I'm a complete noob for choosing to remain alive and help win the game.

I don't usually blame LTs for sitting in wrong bushes unless they are camping hard. Not easy scouting, I know this first hand.

 

Reminds me of the game I had yesterday which was amazing. Prok and our RU 251 says he will scout 1 line, I am in a T-54 lwt and told him "Ok, I will leave it to you, I will scout the hill." It was an amazing game and we both completely demolished the enemy. He got 5.8k spotting, I got 5.2k spotting, more than 10k between the both of us. Prok is amazing if you have a competent scout, double so if you have 2. The enemy never stood a chance.

When WG remove team damage, those same idiots will cry about the game became less real/whatever and blame WG for it. Some people are just stupid like that, theres no other explanation for it.
Wot.. Wot never change..

Well, I gotta say, at least the OP is here talking about stuff. Pat on the back for that. 

 

Honestly, my basic attitude is the person on the controls of their pixel tank can do whatever they like with it. 

 

They don't owe me a damn thing. The challenge is 100% my own to play the game and enjoy it. 

 

Even the griefer players, who can't stand others not doing whatever they deem "correct", are part of that challenge.

 

When I play and I've made this or that decision, I own it. 

 

I don't need anyone's permission, at the same time I realise that knowing what people expect is battle info that must be factored in, and when I'm not doing what others expect, I better be ready for the "carry me daddy" fools.

The word "may" is important in my sentence.

Sure, as long as they're doing something constructive and not being a detriment to their team. I was in a game last night where two top tier heavies decided to camp red line on Overlord, and they didn't move until almost everyone had died (and when they did do anything their contribution was effectively nill). I'm sure they though they could do whatever they wanted with their pixel tank, though the effect was to throw the game for the other 13 players on the team. That's pretty selfish, don't you think?

I've had worse, a T1 Heavy actively blocking my Black Prince from leaving the cap. After tracking him and driving off, he proceeds to harass our artillery by bumping him. He was actually being counter-productive. He was a griefer with a 35% win rate, he probably does this every game.

 

I already reported him though.
