If any of the staff are reading this please bring back friendly fire. The game was so much better with this realistic part of the action.

I don't know, I hated it when my team mate gets in the way and I shoot them, then they shoot me and try to kill me and I have to kill him, then the whole team tries to kill me. Now you can block people from going anywhere which is extremely annoying but I think it's better with friendly fire off.

As much as I don't want friendly fire back, how are we supposed to obtain the medal "lucky" if teammates can no longer kill each other?

I liked friendly fire as a game mechanic. Unfortuatley, people are jerks, that WG cannot fix.

 

I'd still like to see FF in the other game modes (team battes, CW etc.)


I sometimes drive Warships too.

Pretty sure that it's still possible: it's an enemy killing themselves with their own HE or falling damage, possibly drowning.

Nope, it has to be shot by an enemy tank...it specifies in the description that's how it's earned

FF would be useful for blocking trolls I suppose. Maybe not - trolls don't seem to care if you shoot them and you would just end up eating a lot of credits.

I vote, yes.  If someone hits the same tank more than a couple times it's obviously extremely poor play or intentional. Either way they deserve to take a little 'break' from the game.  This doesn't seem like a hard thing to tweak in WG's already automatic system.

 

I have accidently shot team mates when a speeding medium ran in front of a shot or while in a firing line but I have never done it more than once in a match.  However, now when I purposely use one enemy tank to block another tanks fire their is no risk of them hitting a friendly.  The shot either disappears or scores a lucky shot.  I know I have held my fire when two tanks are face planting into each other because I didn't want to hit my ally but now I can fire with impunity.  This is unrealistic and favors the unskilled.

 

Was it really that bad.  I've been hit a few times but I can probably count on two hands how many times this has been an issue in over a thousand games.

You can still earn it. Several people have posted threads about getting it post 1.4, and this information has been known for a lot longer than that from people on the Asia server who have been playing with friendly fire disabled for months.

This. Voted "No".

 

I definitely see less trolls in 1.4
