Hi guys.

 

As I see the drama around SirFoch unfold, I also notice the squad that seems to be in charge of mitigating the damage on forums. Yeah, are the emoticon clans plus a few other dudes like Jibasomething and so on. These dudes have been busy trolling into ridiculousness every discussion detrimental to WG. 

 

My advice for you, the normal user, is better to ignore them.

 

 

Have a nice day.

Steps to cleaning up this mess:

 

1. Fire ph3lan for his statements and his incompetence.
2. Publicly apologize to Foch. You dont need to take him as CC again, just apologize sincerely.

3. Do a statement about the future policies about the CC program for this not to happen again or for the CCs to have rules clear, and the community to know.

4. Stop telling people CCs dont make any work for you... they are creating content and publicity of your product, maybe the only and the best one, as far as bussines interpretation they are non payed workers... "just for the fun"...

 

You will do the right thing... and maybe the community will forgot you for this mess... 

 

But you can always keep fighting back you our mess, keep putting crapon the fan... and game will die faster than you can milk it enough to survive...

To try and put a bit of balance, something of which modern society is lacking as this forum shows us on a almost second by second basis. I don't consider it important because you know it's not important and if you think it is you, really need to take stock of your life.

 

Right now,this is the chance to really try and make wg to realize that their policies are at fault,and you say that we should stop?

Also,they keep on lying to our faces despite proof,and you tell us to stop?Please...don't expect a newb like me to listen to the "reason" of a dinger :B

Hello all, 

 

without a preamble, please allow me to clarify one thing which seems to be in the center of all discussions and which is extremely important to me as Head of Community and to Wargaming!

We at Wargaming never claimed and will never pursue a copyright strike on public available or given content based on criticism, negative reviews of content, opinions on content etc. as long as I am having responsibility for community management in Europe. The only exception can be content provided under conditions of an NDA.

 

Florian Mentl

Head of Community 

 

Ha ! You have your hands full sir ! I wouldn't like to be at your place today ! 

 

Now, being because some NDA stuff (the tank) being available to SirFoch as a CC and now that he's no longer CC you want that stuff gone or whatever ....  It's still bad PR. As it kindda still looks like a jerk move or can far too easily be made looking like one.

 

Ph3lan or who ever told him to say that WG will DMCA Strike SirFoch's YT Vid about the Chrysler K fuckep up. Badly. You can and probably will try to do some damage containement. But it won't do much. Mostly because what he said in this vid is what the part of the community that will fuss about that PR fail think it is. An OP Premium tank in a power creep succesion of OP premium tanks. And from that point, saying anything  other than 'sorry we fucked up' both on the DMCA Strike threat and the Chrysler K will do arm.

Right how many people play this game and how many people watch streams and look at the forum, I shall be conservative and say 70-30 split (although I imagine it's more likely 85-15) ok, first of all nowhere have I said I disagree with anything Foch said, in fact it's something I agree with but as I've said in a previous post I have paid for and play several of these "OP" tanks that people complain about, so complaining about tanks I haven't yet bought but not complaining about tanks I have and are considered OP is a tad bit hypocritical wouldn't you say?

Year after year WG get bigger and bigger so hey they must be doing something right and now you are saying a small minority of the playerbase (that's us by the way) don't agree with the way WG are running things (although they make more money year after year and more playerbase) and they must stop, It's not going to happen because most of you if they released the type-59 tomorrow would buy it.

 

Call me a shill all you want but please anyone who wants to please sell your Liberte/Patriot/Skorpion G/Defender before you do.

Pro counter argument. Band wagon went ------> way. Nice selection of OP tier 8 tanks you have in the garage I imagine you will be selling them in order to protest at the next OP tier 8 tank they are selling?

Always found it better to phone / meet someone if I'm going to make a slightly questionable threat.  No record that way & I can claim "misunderstanding".  Putting it on email / chat is just asking for trouble if you're not careful.
