WoWS: Team Killing and Punishment – How does it work?

Source: MrConway, EU Forums

As many of you have in the past asked how exactly the team killing system works, here is a run-down of the system for you!

A player receives the team killer (Discipline) status under the following circumstances:

  • Has done 10,000 or more damage to allies in the most recent 1,000,000 main battery damage (1% of the damage to allies)
  • Has done 10,000 or more damage to allies in the most recent 1,000,000 aerial bomb damage (1% of the damage to allies)
  • Has done 10,000 or more damage to allies in the most recent 1,000,000 aerial torpedo damage (1% of the damage to allies)
  • Has done 40,000 or more damage to allies in the most recent 1,000,000 torpedo damage, was done to the allies (4% of the damage to allies)
  • Killing an ally with main battery, torpedoes, or aircraft
  • Has shot down 30 allied aircraft or more in the 100 most recent air victories (AA defense doesn’t count, aerial combat only)

As a result, a players nickname becomes pink!

When under this team killer (Discipline) status, a player receives the full damage that he inflicts on any ally as mirror damage, by percentage.

  • For example, if a team killer does 10,000 damage to an ally, which is 50% of that ally’s health, the team killer also loses 50% of his health.
  • Allies take only 10% of the damage that a team killer is trying to do to them (5% for torpedoes).
  • Allies take full damage from flood and fire damage caused by team killers, this will be reduced in future.
  • Mirror damage is multiplied if the team killer continues to try and cause damage to allies, scaling up to 150%, 200% etc.

To “clear his name”, a team killer must play 6 clean battles – not causing any team damage. If during those 6 battles the teamiller does hit an ally, the number of battles required to be cleared grows proportionally to the potential damage done to the allies, or kills.

If a team killer relapses and re-offends, he will need (6 + 2*n) battles to remove the team killer status, where n is the number of relapses.

  1. I became pink due to spaming torpedoes in the Halloween mode. I needed quite a lot of battles to clean my name and twice I dies because I sank an ally while being pink. At least I know what this is about, under these rules, I’ll be pink quite rarely, except when special modes appear.
