Is there a bandwagon that Jim Sterling won't jump on to get more views? He's never really come to terms with Yahtzee being the popular one, has he.

 

Thank god for Jim Sterling, son, and who or what is a Yahtzee?

Foch's "Wath's going on" video currently at 4702 likes. If we assume 2% of the active players are on the forums, that would be 20.000. So he's getting close to 25% likes from forumites.

 

I think I'll buy the tank btw.

8º angled premium with 230 effective armor "weak spot"  at tier 8. 

 

 

Sir Foch criticizing this op TOXIC prems is the one defending the company imo.

The 'some guy losing job' is solely responsible for handling of the 'few hundred people' that according to you this problem touched. So yes, he should be saked if what he did is not in line with the company standard. supposedly...

 

No he shouldn't and stop being so childish.

And why not? He did something that clearly is damaging the company more then whatever Foch could possible do, and what according to his direct superior is against company rules. So he either gets thrown out to validate to possible lie of Nijal or stays and makes it clear to everyone that WG is rolling Gajin style nowdays.

While i don't mind giving WG $hit over their screw-ups, i think this time it's unjustified.

 

SirFoch may have his own style, which seems to make him quite popular but he crossed the line, and so the removal of his CC status - while harsh - was justified.

It's one thing expressing an opinion with colorful metaphors, it's another to downright insult people.

Personally, i'd have tried to fix the mess in private, but i guess once $hit flinging starts...

 

What both sides should do, is sit together and talk it through - in private.

There may be a chance that WG will give him his CC status back at some point in the future once things calm down.

 

The community, always eager to give $hit to WG even when there's no real reason for it, is not helping the situation by pouring gasoline into the fire.

Even a dog knows not to bite the hand that feeds it.

 

To this i have this from Jingles on his latest youtube video

"I have asked Wargaming for a statement, which I think is only fair. I have asked that they clarify whether or not a either Circon or Foch were issued, or threatened with, copyright strikes when they were asked to remove their content. If it turns out that copyright strikes were either used or threatened then I have informed them that I will be expecting them to apologise for gross misuse of the YouTube copyright protection system and give assurances that such action will never again be used or threatened for dealing with issues that should be dealt with using the appropriate slander, libel and anti-defamation laws. I've also told them that my continued association with their Community Contributor Program depends on their answer. It is NOT okay to threaten someone's livelihood with a false copyright strike when you don't like what they're saying or how they're saying it. I've been informed that Wargaming are preparing a response and I'm waiting to see what they have to say"

So i think Jingles actually stood up for Foch this time.

"We are always open to criticism," Kislyi said. 

"What we did in this case (after Rubicon), it was [my decision]. I literally reshuffled the whole World of Tanks team. Developer and publisher."

"We realize that World of Tanks can last forever," Kislyi said.

That's just pure collectivist rhetoric that makes you seem like a [edited]element...

 

So big companies can treat the people that give them practically free advertising like crapif they don't fit company regulations and are allowed to abuse youtube's copyright system to to it, just because there are a lot of sheep who don't pay any attention to the youtubers or forums and just play the game? People gave nike crapfor working with sweatshops even though that was a tiny minority of people making sure a vast majority of people gets sportswear they're happy about, is that okay as well? 


It's only because there are some dingers saying this is bullcrap as well or I'd start thinking you need to be a professional WG shill to get in...

Is it really... I mean I'm going to go home later on tonight and still play the game, I'm still going to buy some prem and at last count there at probably more than 90% of the playerbase that don't come on to the forums, don't watch streamers and still by prem and OP tanks, it's going to damage WG like a fly damages a truck doing 60 mph down a motorway.

 

Tell you what if it makes you happy I shall light a candle for Foch when I get home tonight.

The policy didn't mention their stance on frequent use of the F-word when describing Wargaming and their content

Which I did in multiple posts, including my OP. It's just that the threat ph3lan did was in that one and it was the thing that shows the post I replied to was flat out wrong for being a gullible [edited]and trusting a Wg representative on his words, when those words were either clear lies or a way to throw Ph3lan under the buss. 

 

There's no way a guy acts on his own in a case like this, I don't believe for one second Ph3lan went rogue and pulled this stunt, not when it's about a relatively high profile youtuber.

I've not defended any actions of WG in this case beyond the revoking of CC status.

 

And that I do because he didn't deliver a tank review, he delivered a royal FU WG review. That is not contributing in my book, that is crying a river of tears. I would have given him an inch more slack if he had actually bothered to play the game and show the replays... he didn't. That shows how much the tank itself was the focus of the video, AKA almost zero.
