Today on Fiery Salient map, both IS-7 and I driving in the Strv tier 9 td were having a good game. He had 5 kills, I had 3, we both did 4k-ish damage. Enemy team had one last guy left, a JpE-100 on hill. The IS-7 asks if he could get that top gun, nobody answered. I already pre-aimed at JpE-100's whereabouts, once he was spotted, I got the kill. Then his mate E-100 just TKed me right before the end. So I am asking why players like IS-7 and E-100 righteously thinks any 5-kill player should entitled for the final kill? Why players like me shall yield the final kill? Shouldn't any medal being earned instead of being asked?

Why shouldn't I give you a top gun if you have 5 kills?

 

I'm writing down your name, I'll remember to hunt you down no matter the team.

Kills should be earned, period. No one is entitled to anything. I would never expect nor want someone to yield a top gun to me. If someone else gets the kill before me, then they earned that kill and should have it.

LOL go for it, I never asked and will never ever ask anybody to yield a kill for me. I think any medal is only achievable through hard earning.

Exactly

 

If they ask for the last kill nicely, (Please and Thank you), why not? They deserve it if they have enough caring to ask nicely.

Top guns are meaningless rewards and they should be earned, not given. I actually hate when I have 5 kills and some guy suggests to the team that they give the last kill to me. It's a nice thing to do, but this is a competitive game and if someone else is in position for that kill, they deserve it, not me.

If someone on my team had a good game and killed 5 tanks, and ASKS if he can get the 6th top gun kill, of course I will let him/her have it. Why shouldn't I?

 

Is this a trick question?

Its just being nice. Its the same deal with blocking for your teammates. You dont have to, and they probably dont deserve it because they prob threw their hitpoints away, but its just being nice, and it would be nice if someone else did the same for you in same situation

Why? Courtesy.

 

The game recognizes the 6-kill threshhold as significant enough to award a medal. Medals are nice.

 

Another reason is, if a player already has made 5 kills for your team, they have contributed significantly for the team. Why not allow that significant contributor this one more kill to show your appreciation for their effort? You're probably going to play many, many more battles in this game. How much, in the long haul, are you going to miss this one kill?

Sorry, but the top gun is not earned if you have to ask the team to give it to you (hold their shot).  I don't care if you have 5 kills and asked nicely for the 6th kill, if I have the shot I am taking it.

Never give a top gun. Earn it.

So many helicopter babies grown into gamers want everything given to them. Unless daddy has millions they're up for a rude awakening.

So the TK is justifiable?

Agree 100%.  

 

I'll always remember being on Himmelsdorf in my M103.   Had 9 kills with one tank left on the hill.   My remaining two teammates were already headed up the hill.   They kept him pinned until I could get up there and get the 10th for my Poole's medal.   Don't remember their names but that was very classy. 

 

It's all about the situation I guess.

I was the IS-7 in that game. At that point I had 4.8k damage, 6.8k spotting damage, and 8.4k blocked damage and 5 kills. I asked the team if they could please let me have the top gun. The arty said he had softened him up for me and our E-100 and Jpz E-100 agreed to hold their fire. As soon as the Jpz was spotted the Strv took the kill. Then the Jpz E-100 and our arty just said wow. And our E-100 tked him. And no I was not mates with the our E-100.

I always answer offers like these with: I don't care , just win....

If you have 5 kills and does not get the last kill you did not earn the TopGun, easy as that.

Sorry, but you wanted the top gun just handed to you and everyone to hold their shot.  You want top gun then earn by killing the 6th tank and not ask the team to let you kill the 6th tank.

You're a piece of trash. If you think everything should be handed to you just because muh feelings, then rightly sod off.

You could have granted a good team mate a 6th kill, especially since the others were willing to. I'm not surprised you got TK'ed for it. I would never have done it, but basically you were gagging for it.
