No it's perfectly legal.

I think the issues you raised will be addressed in the next update.
Would like to see that in a future update.

It happens both ways, you can also accidentally/unwittingly take someone else's kill, but that wont give your the DR improvement, but maybe you needed that 7th kill to top your last highest kill rate. Eitherways, if your team wins, then that should be a consolation - as at least your own Win-Rate will improve.

There is no such thing as kill stealing in my eyes, sure if its the last red in the game and one tank has done all the work and you are confident he will make the kill I will leave him to it. At all other times it is the win that is important and if I see a red tank I shoot it no matter what - one less red is one less red and a better chance of winning the battle. Being too kind all the time and holding your shot to let a tank get a kill can bite you and the team in the [edited] should he bounce his shot, miss or get wiped out by some TD far away - you are down one tank and the red is still in the game.

 

I have had kills taken away from me and I have probably taken some away from others but the final result is all that matters.

Well... contrary to what I said, there is a form of kill stealing. In one of my games, a player followed me around, waiting for till the tanks I were shooting at were down to their last kill shots, and finished each off. He ended up with the max # of kills in the game, but the least Damage. Sort of annoying, but well...

 

Now what I don't like, is when some utter twit, slides themselves in between you and the wall you're up against, and blocks you from your shot, then misses and runs off... by which time your target has gone. That, type of player is a ... not great player.

Yes, somewhat annoying but what can you do. At least they are not likely to follow you in subsequent games so its an occasional annoyance.

 

Of course if they are clan mates and you are in a countdown battle then its a laughing matter and another score to settle lol.

Is kill-stealing even a thing? Been playing since 2014 and I can seriously only recall one time when I was accused of stealing a kill and I am a tanker that simply see's enemy tank and shoots it if possible. I could care less if anyone else has done damage or not or if they were about to fire. Job is to get the enemy guns dead as quickly as possible - so I do not have time to look around to make sure nobody else is aiming at it. Besides, the battlefield is crazy enough as it is so I do not have the awareness to notice exactly what tanks have been shooting other tanks.

When you die and stay to watch sometimes you see tanks holding their shot until someone reduces the opfor to a 1shot and then they fire, that is what I consider kill farming not stealing. I don’t like it because it’s selfish and shows lack of team spirit. I load I shoot simple as that. Sometimes I may get a kill someone else hoped for but I can’t watch what everyone’s kills are so that’s unfortunate for them. 

I do notice if someone has 6 kills and would hold my shot so they get the kill unless I know their reload and health would mean they will die before getting it.

No such thing as kill stealing. I focus on damage and the kills take care of themselves.

Yeah there are people like that but that is just pathetic really. Doesnt really bother me though as I am more about damage than kills. Damage is a far more important stat and id rather do 4k damage killing 0 than 50 damage killing 1. Half the time I never even know how many kills I have as I just go about dishing out hurt and then get surprised when I notice I have 5 or 6 kills. Once got the full seven with not even really realizing it until i got to battle results.

Getting rid of a red gun is getting rid of a red gun.  I'll happily put a 400-damage shell into a 4-HP red because it means he won't be shooting any greens afterwards. One exception would be with the game already in the bag,  if I noticed a green on 6 kills,  I'd try to leave the last for them to get a raisin. Hasn't come up in practice yet though.

Stealing kill is bad not it is not illegal. Usually if someone can kill an enemy, I'll let him do it. But there are many times when I just want to secure the kill on a particularly dangerous TD or LT and I don't care if it is killsteal or not. I just want him to die. Sometimes if you see an opportunity to get rid of an enemy tank in battle, TAKE IT.

Tanks that are my babes: WT auf Pz4 (OP/ridiculously strong and I love it), E50M, T-54, E50, Obj268, Hellcat, Bromwell, KV2, ISU152, LTTB, T54 LWT, JP2, IS7

Tanks that I hate: KV4, Tanks driven by bots or poor players (especially below tier 5), 

Tanks that I am trying to ACE: KV4, Y5 ELC

No such thing as stealing kills, it doesn't worry me who kills the enemy.

TDs are snipers designed to heavily damage the enemy. But also to aid them in killing the enemies from afar

Please try to avoid posting in old threads. We had a 0 battle spam account revive this thread, which has been dealt with. I will also be locking this thread as it has run its course. The thread was made back in 2017.

 

Stealing kills is allowed and in no way illegal, it is just frowned upon by the community, especially if you are waiting for enemies to be at low health to shoot and destroy them, but is in no way violation of our game rules.

 

Thread locked.
