Relatively recently, many have started talking about Team Damage in WoT random battles again. All this happened after the spring developers’ answers where S. Makarov said that he was categorically against the removal of Team Damage from the game, but he was strongly persuaded otherwise afterwards. Recently, the Publishing Director of WoT mentioned that he was planning to test the disabling of TD (in random battles) this year on the Sandbox test server.
Recall that TD(Team Damage) is an opportunity to cause damage to allied units, hence the TeamKill (s) – the destruction of the unit (in our case, the tank) of the ally. What to do with the “blue players”? and the main question whether Team Damage is needed in the World of Tanks? Should this ability be removed from random battles?
For example, in WoT Blitz, we quickly shut down Team Damage – “There were many reasons for turning off Team Damage: many newcomers, whose shooting is not always conscious, tend to damage teammates and conflicts in a small team of 7 people are fatal (teamkills almost certainly lead to a loss).”
