I flipped a T25/2 in game and a helpful team mate in a KV-1 tried to flip my tank up right.  He tried to push it over but as he pushed it his KV-1 started to take damage from my tank being on top of his.  He was undaunted by the damage he was taking and he kept right on struggling trying to get my TD back on its tracks.  Unfortunately he failed.  The damage he took while trying to flip me took all his hit points and he died.  The result of this was he died and I was immediately BANNED for killing a team mate.

War Gaming needs to fix the issue with tanks flipping easily and with damage done to team mates helping flipped tanks.

I see your point but it is hard to code a game for intent. Same thing with overly punishing players who drown. Some do so on purpose but sometimes people just suck at driving and it is an accident.

 

Full disclosure - I "may" have been drunk tanking the other day and accidentally drowned my tank.

Just turn in a replay and you'll be fine.  They will unlock your account when they see the circumstances

Plain and simple I got banned for trying to help a guy in a flipped over tank because he got smoked in the process and I got banned for an hour.

Until wargaming fixes this issue there will be "NO" assistance for flipped over tanks from my end.

I'll always try and help someone who's flipped, but I agree you have to be VERYYYYYY careful.  For both you and the tank that's flipped.

Tow cables would be to difficult of a concept.  Many can't even figure out how the heck to read the mini map.  Just imagine Tow cables.....I need a tow....either a recovery tank or another tank comes to you to drag your sorry but to a maintenance collection point where your dumb tanker crew gets saved by the wrench turners.  Nope too hard for this group.

Quit lying to people, because they do not look at replays disputing team damage.

Maybe you should just stop driving like an idiot so you don't flip it in the first place.

Flipping someone back is really a pain, and sometimes impossible. If you go to flip a teammate, it should automatically flip them back onto their tracks as soon as you make contact.

Maybe you should stop making comments that show you are an idiot in the first place.

I actually sent in a replay to a Youtuber.  Our E25 takes off towards where the heavy tanks usually brawl. (Why I don't know) Almost gets there and flips. (Idiot)  I drive past the E25 and back up.  This way I can protect him from the enemy about to round the corner while trying to back him up a hill and use it to flip the cockroach.  An M4 comes in and tries to help.  When the over-powering enemy shows up, M4 wisely tries to bugger out.  But he dies.  I continue to fight while almost pinning the E25 to the hillside, trying to flip him.  It's no use, I can't hold off that many enemy solo and die trying.  Now the E25 is upside-down, trapped against the hill and a dead tank.  The counter finally starts counting down.  Will the enemy get the kill?  Nope, he dies...  ...team kill credited to the M4!

Funny.  Most of us NEVER flip a tank.

All they would have to do is disable team damage counting against you if a flipped tank is one of the parties. They don't need intent. I cant see a circumstance where someone would be trying to team damage a tank that's already flipped.

You seriously trust these programmers to properly put in tow cables without breaking something else, oh, say like the Friends list (again, and again, and again, and again) ?
