    WGNA are a bunch of retarded faggots. Just when the drama was about to be over they go full autism mode. You can't even mention anything about the drama on the WoT NA forums or else the mods will delete your thread within minutes and give you forum bans. They truly are the stupidest gaming company alive. If WG actually goes after Foch and this goes to court somehow I would personally donate money to Foch's case.

    And now Jingles is gone

    OP please all you have to do is post the link for the embed RIP though, I remember when I was a noob back in 2013 and found jingle's channel, I loved all of his old videos where he played the ISU 152 like an idiot but laughed manically when he one-shotted tier 6s. I haven't watched much of his content for the past 2-3 years, but I appreciate his contributions to the community, his general positivity, and his passion for his channel. I have no idea what kind of PR disaster is going on, this seems like some kind of KGB tactic to use the "SJW" trend to moderate negative content that goes against WG's policies and economic interests (as I have no doubt that WG doesn't give a rat's ass about the internet culture war). Whatever's going on, this announcement is HORRIBLE news for WG. I don't even know how you can recover from your #1 content creator jumping ship. Maybe Jingles will get a nice letter and check from Victor Kislyi and a Belarussian mail-order bride to bring him back into their fold? But this seems like a pretty definitive decision. I only wish I could see what is going on in WG internal emails and video conference calls right now... This is absolute mayhem and I have more than enough to enjoy the storm

    Logged onto wotlabs tonight thinking "Damn, I really, really hope someone made a thread so I could discuss the terrorist attacks! It's not like I have the option to do that on facebook, twitter, the comments section of internet newspapers, dedicated politics forums, etc... No, I come to wotlabs to talk about this shit!"

    Wow, WGNA publically taking a retarded stance on something for once? Why am I not surprised? Friend of mine was banned from the forum for 30 days for posting a screenshot his platoonmate took of him accidentally glitching outside the redline with all names covered aside from the screenshot taker's, though he appealed it and they gave some sort of apology that was probably a copypasta reply and even went to say that it was a "system" that "automatically" banned him and moved the thread to a hidden forum which is obviously bullshit. Here's the reasons listed: Name and shame, UNCONSTRUCTIVE, and apparently trying to start unrest by revealing a possibly massive exploit and asking WG to fix it. I really wish you could see the moderator who issued the strike/ban/etc's name on the warning. More on that here if you're interested. This isn't the first time WGNA has enacted absolutely retarded enforcement actions nor will it be the last as evidenced by what they said about Foch despite WGEU apologizing about it. What gets me is why WGNA out of all the servers think they can afford to be shitty to someone undeserving and who hardly even plays the NA server (atleast to my knowledge, correct me if I'm wrong) and making sure everyone and their mom sees it as opposed to their usual hush-hush style of moderation and banning. Ya know... because NA has the second lowest current population out of all the servers? Meathead even approached poshy and basically told him he'd be a Community Contributor if he toned down his language and insults, though according to poshy he said it far less formally than that and whatever he said apparently seriously pissed poshy off to the point of blocking him on twitch/ingame and kept on trucking with his charity donations and entertaining viewers. I detest that to be a CC you seem to generally have to be a super PC nice guy; IE fucking boring and not worth watching. There's quite a few streamers out there who wouldn't even have a viewer base if they had to abide by these strict set of rules and essentially be another QB. If WG wanted more people to be attracted to WOT, they'd go with the more outlandish and actually funny streamers who are entertaining to watch and not impose the threat of DMCA or straight up removal of CC status for their style of delivery. Who the fuck even wants to be a CC at this point? The main thing that gets me is how fucking hard would it have been to message Foch and say "Hey man, can you chill with the insults to our company in the future, please? We love your content but don't curse our name since you're a CC and all." and letting it slide this time? I never saw anyone mention that they warned him before hand in a reasonable way, seemingly just taking harsh action and making up that he "used homophobic slurs" that I've yet to hear in any video of his I've seen. It's sad that the fucktards at exposingwot are starting to look less like tinfoil hatted stay-at-home dads with mental deficiencies and more like they actually got something right for once in a way.

    This. All it means is he won't be getting access to new ships and tanks beforehand and he will be doing less wargaming content. Which is understandable since he genuinely likes Wargaming games, although i can see him dropping it completely if WG decided to go full gaijin and actually strike someone.

    People are too dumb, too lazy, and often both to even try to lead a thought of their own. If a person they like and follow says something and it does not appear to be totally wrong to said lazy and dumb people at first glance they will agree and go with it. Pretty simple, I'd say.

    pffft, as if they ever actually talk to each other. Thats the biggest problem with the whole damn company, everybody in their community relations dept from forum mods up is just freelancing. I can just about guarantee that when Ph3alan made the original threat of a copyright strike, that he had not queried their legal department first, just like when WGNA posted that vague as fuck veiled threat they probably never ran it past Cyprus. In my world if an employee cowboys up and makes a threat of legal action they would be fired. At WG, they get invited to spend a week at Serbs moon base. I mean seriously, can you imagine Sony or Nintendo allowing regional community developers to just wing it and make shit up as they go? WG has always treated outreach amateurishly going all the way back to 'how terrible' and 'working as intended'. Now they are just letting low level muppets channel their own inner Serb.

    This morning in the WG EU offices: WG_EU_Community_Manager: I think we have this under control. At the very least it can't get any worse then it already is. This morning in the NA offices: WG_NA_Community_Manager: *walks in, sees that EU is resolving their problem, decides that this just won't stand* HOLD MAH BEEEER!!!!!!!!!! Several hours later at the EU offices: Jingles: I'm out, bro! Random less important CC: Me to! WG_EU_Community_Manager: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK.

    To be honest, my guess from personal cultural experience is that the Russians were like "cyka blyat, we dont understand americans good", so they went ahead and hired someone who advertised themselves as a person in tune with the US business scene and gave him free reign. After that, said guy likely went ahead and just hired his friends rather than actual competent workers. It would explain the super cringy world of tanks ads that usually make me embarrassed to be playing. It would also explain the sudden extreme SJW response to foch, since theyre automatically just doing what corporate america does, rather than being actually fucking competent in communicating and analyzing a situation.

    Its not so awful anymore. https://www.mediafire.com/?dbyxq2bja5n4ats Type 62, averages right around 2k dpg for 40ish battles. It used to be bad, then it was good, then it was awful, and now its pretty good again, except that terrible HEAT shell cost that just needs to be brought down from 12g/4800silver to what? 8? 9? So that even when you pen your gold shells you aren't losing credits. Its not like the 62 makes massive profits anyhow right? Oh and a bonus Lakeville domination from Friday http://wotreplays.com/site/3603139#lakeville-crabeatoff-type_62

Meanwhile a world of tanks forumtard admin goes full retard on said world of tanks streamer, leading to a small ``shit``storm. Did i mention this was a forum about world of tanks and that we discus world of tanks topic(s?)

    opinions on sirfoch being censored?

    if you guys don't know tl;dr SirFoch spoke negatively about WG premium tank policy and got threaten (and thus censored) by EU branch of WG and in turn removed his community contributor status (his video afterwards here: https://youtu.be/VT36zcdnAKM ) as a result, people got pissed and you can see the end result yourself on the release video or look down here i really don't want WG to go down the route that gajin did with censorship, but this is the first step to just that, i am even less inclined to spend money then i already am, even if its just EU, i am not happy with what is happening put simply all we can do as a community is let them know we don't condone this and they will greatly damage both EU and NA communities if they continue such actions PS: feel free to move this to another sub forum if it doesn't fit here, wasn't 100% on that Edit: found the video that was taken down if you want to see what was taken down https://www.facebook.com/WorldofTanksPolskaFanPage/videos/1071566622943302/?hc_location=ufi Edit: staff response to community backlash; which its one thing to remove his CC status but pulling his video down is actively censoring him, no way to downplay that (more here : http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/629174-wg-going-batshit-over-ccs/page__p__14293729#entry14293729 )

    There are some features from TS that I miss, but on the whole Discord is a much more useful program. At the very least it largely eliminates the need for a website and forum, and the regular upkeep that those entail. Also, that mobile app for Discord can also be used for voice chat. I've used it to listen in on clan chats before when I couldn't be at my computer.

    It's...whatever. Mods can take down mine and I wouldn't care. That said, this tank looks nice. It just looks nice. Stats-wise, that DPM isn't competitive. Also, armor is speculated to be ~200mm eff UFP, but it has the same shit cupola the French TD's have. inb4 WG make this thing OP as fuck with 60deg/sec traverse, 1.5s aim time, 5k DPM, and cupolas act as spaced armor. But pen will be brought down to 198mm for balance :^)))

    Communist era PR department at its finest. I guess WGNA never got the email fax telegram letter from WGEU that WG would never use CR Strikes as a weapon against contributors. Literally I come on here and say hey guys, this is probably not really censorship - WGEU says "whoa, we really didn't mean Copyright Strikes - sorry" - then WGNA comes along in a matter thats not even their business and says "yeah, we will". FFS WG, morons.

    I think (hope) they will. All they really need to do is say "we fucked up, going forward we're going to have one policy across all regions, there is a certain standard that CC members agree to meet, we reserve the right to terminate CC status at any time for not meeting those standards , but we will never pursue copyright strikes against anyone." Which is pretty much what EU did. Just get the other regions on board and they're done.

    Its a shame because his WoWS content is pretty good, especially his views on the new lines to some extent. I'm rubbish at botes though. His comments on WoT have been correct and the only thing that can be annoying from a higher skill level is some of his commentary, which can be forgiven since by his own admission, he's worse than he used to be. Its right enough most of the time though. That being said, I mainly just watch every monday or so with the occasional compilations he does and some WoWS videos, especially ones on new ships. Anyway, WG are supposed to have a weekly meeting every Monday. I'm pretty sure a lot of the responses from WG NA are from before Monday, which is fucking stupid. Why you would make any statement at all regarding such a touchy subject without communicating with the rest of WG just defies any logic. How the fuck did they even get a job in the first place?

    opinions on sirfoch being censored?

    Lots of people post videos far more critical of WG policy every day on a variety of platforms across social media. In fact, Foch is free to continue to post scathing searing videos condemning every facet of WG products and policies on Youtube or any other platform - WG just does not have to pay him for it. As far as the threat to levy a DMCA Strike against him never materialized because it was all bark and no bite. They could delete his WG account and ban him from the community, but they have very little sway over what he says beyond that. Now, you're a lawyer and I'm a geologist - so we probably have a very different take on this, but WG has just as much right to control the message emanating from their CCs as their CCs have to go rogue and bite the hand that feeds them. Ph3lans actions were douchey and in reality he probably lacks the authority to even carry out his threats - that would be the decision of the WG EU legal team to actually approach Youtube and convince them to take down content that had previously been endorsed by WG. I understand libel laws in the EU are pretty draconian so maybe he was in more jeopardy than he would be here - I don't know. The thing is, those 18th century craftsman did not have snapchat, and instagram, and tumblr, and facebook, and dozens of other outlets for their voices. Its very hard to silence somebody that can log in to multiple different venues under a dozen different user names all with zero legal ramifications. Hell, the real threat to speech today is not censorship - its noise from competing sources. Foch has far more outlets for his Voice than Thomas Paine had so I have a hard time feeling like Foch got censored in a way that makes WG culpable for anything more than douchebaggery.

    It's time to stop. E5's still an amazing tank, and one of the best T10 solopubbers. The fact that it has lost its idiot-proof status doesn't mean it needs any buffs whatsoever. Also, fuck the 113, it's garbage gun, turret placement, bad depression, dubious upper plate, and the ridiculous module damage it takes. That's what I would call a passable pub tank.
