    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?)

    The bit at the end about WG being against homophobic slurs is interesting, as they (or at least WG Asia) have done that themselves. I have (had - will search) a (massive) image downloaded from their website which covers stuff like how to report foul play, and that (griefing and) team-killing is not allowed - it then goes on to show a cartoon team-killing tank turn blue, and makes a reference to this (I forget exactly) being "a bit gay" as though this was something to be laughed at. Ha, Fuck you WG - Found it , gay slander on your own fucking server - https://worldoftanks.asia/dcont/fb/manga_tutorial/tutorial12-1.jpg (you'll have to scroll down a bit).

    Sorry I was in a hurry and wanted to respond fast. No problems with my English, sometimes I just write too fast. English is my main language in work and understanding what people are trying to communicate is basically my life as I'm a movie buyer and most acquisitions are based off scripts. Sorry about the messy post. I'm on a trade event right now so a mix of hangover, low amount sleep and spare time is not working well for me. Now to get to your point. " I believe we should trust that WG's grounds for removal of the video was being offensive to WG employeeThat was what WG said about their own logic and I would assume that a person can explain their logic behind an action, thus why I believe we should trust that WG's grounds for removal of the video was being offensive to WG employees" - This is the same reasoning from the first post. I understood it well. You basically say that we should trust WG's explanation if they say thing A was what caused them to take action. The thing is they can lie. Given that previously I worked in PR and I get info how my and other companies handle PR lying is OBVIOUSLY big part of your public relations. What I AM saying is we should not trust WG's explanation for their logic behind the whole move against Foch. The move might have as well been motivated by the need to censor him but OBVIOUSLY they can't say "hey guys we wanted to censor foch because his video was negative about our new product". This is exactly why you can't trust their official statements. Especially since at the same time they went after another contributor for a different video which may not be a coincidence and may indicate a change of politics regarding youtubers/contributors. It is a real possibility given that contributors have been recently more critical of War Gaming than usual and even QB gave them some flak for t10 light tank nerfs. I've worked under bosses who in similar situations would go after censorship and then deny it. So my experience tells me it is entirely possible they are lying. Also WG called Foch Homophobic on Kotaku. You really want to trust them when they do shit like that? You look at this only from one angle. Trier 8 tanks can see 5 different triers of tanks 6,7,8,9 and 10. OP premiums are not a big problem for only 2 out of 5 of those triers. Also even as top trier if enemy bottom trier tanks are OP and yours are shit given same skill level it may still mean a loss if the teams are equally balanced on high triers. It's a smaller problem but in the long run it has an influence on the game.

    I was just in a game with my Leo. I got shot at three times by one arty and none of them hit me, just all near misses. Nothing else hit me the whole game. In those three near misses that pos motherfucker killed me. Arty is just as bad if not worse than it ever was, just in a different way. Maybe in heavy tanks its a little better but tanks with little to no armor its much worse. Fuck arty. If any of you here enjoy playing arty then fuck you. Just sayin'

    Regardless of game longevity, I think we can all agree that these premiums detract from game health and balance. Whether the game dies in 3 months or 3 years, it doesn't really matter, especially if it isn't enjoyable to play because of the new monetization model.

    T95 - The Brick of Tier 9

    What crewskills do you recommend to this thing? Just started grinding towards E3 and put fresh crew with 6th/camo in it, what for 2nd skills? Was planning to go for repairs but would gunhandling be better? Also what equipment should I run? Currently Rammer/vents but still wondering between optics, spall liner and GLD as a 3rd choice. Or even a toolbox? Few games I've had with this I've found myself spearheading assault up close and personal so not really gaining anything from Binos/Net. Oh, and it's already fully upgraded so weight isn't a problem.

    Charioteer - does it need a buff?

    [tangent]It's not that the chariot needs buffs, it's that everything else needs nerfs. Everything that wasn't absurd a few years ago is now mediocre at best, and the chariot is no exception. They can keep buffing tanks all they want, but all it's doing is feeding the cycle that continually makes their game less enjoyable.[/tangent]
