Later, team damage was disabled.
Trolls compensated for this by abusing physics. Pushing teammates onto their sides, getting them irretrievably lodged into alcoves, troll platoons that would corner you for up to 15 minutes. Victims have no recourse. Can't shoot back. If you leave the battle early, you're penalized. No word back on whether or not reports do anything apart from placebo satisfaction. I'd prefer just being taken out by a troll platoon and be sent back to the garage.Outdated Mechanic
Team kill is a game mechanic that was a part of World of Tanks for a long time. Its main purpose was to immerse players into the game atmosphere. However, with time, negative sides of this mechanic became apparent, like the domino effect, when allies start exchange fire with each other. It resulted in bans and fines, but the game is not about that.
To make gameplay more comfortable we decided to rework the damage system by removing team damage by shooting or ramming.
