- Wotreplays is an independent site, its not associated with wargaming (according to ectar)
- The warnings several users received from wargaming support staff regarding the login (for which wotreplays uses wargamings own auth-server via open id) seem to have been only given as general recommendation. No wargaming employee or user reported cases of security attacks.
- If you wish to follow the wg-supports recommendation to upload only as guest-account, and not to use the shared openid-login, you can permanently disable the openid login for wotreplays.com at https://eu.wargaming.net/personal/ and deselect it under "Authorized Third-Party Websites"
- The details regarding the information categories wargaming shares via openid are disclosed at https://support.worl...cle/View/90/21/ .
Original thread start.
To show gameplay, discuss tactics etc, there are several websites hosting wot-replays.
Since my go-to-service for this, mwreplays, has been offline for some days now, i looked for another one.
A german forum mods pointed to the website wotreplays.com, i used it, but now i feel quite uninformed.
uses a login which requires the wargaming.net login... openid; and it sure looks a lot like an official wargaming website.
Heck, it even says wargaming on the bottom, only if you look closely, it says "wargaming design"...
Is that website from wargaming? The "About" and a quick whois-query make me think different.
And if not - its pretty fishy to then make a look-a-like login which requires wot-user-data.
Or is this openid a partner service from wargaming which they provide to wotreplays.com?
Please mods (or wotreplays.com folks), inform us about the real status of the partnership between wargaming and wotreplays.
As long there is no confirmation from wargaming, i would STRICTLY recommend not using your wargaming account data as login; even if it looks & feels like wargamings login.
