Hi guys. I'm here again for another question to discuss. Wargaming and World of Tanks celebrating so many days in a year from time to time. Christmas, St. Patrick Day, Easter or D-Day, Victory Day, etc. Some of the origins in Christianity culture, other about some countries' national days or important days. And these days WG giving some little gifts for everyone.

 

I'm not against that. But millions of Muslims living in Europe too. I'm not talking about just Turkey. Albanians, half of Bulgarians, Bosnians, Algerians, Tunisians, etc. But WG is not celebrating any feast of the Muslim community. Not Ramadan, not Sacrifice Feast (which is tomorrow). Don't you think it's time to change this?

Same reason why they don't have Hanukkah and Vaisakha events. And D-day is not exactly a religious thing that is only for one group of Europeans is it? That's more on the "Let's not forget" aspect that affects everyone, regardless of religion.

 

Then again WG doesn't call it Christmas events either. They call it end of the year events. The decorations from those events don't even reflect any religion as such more so then "memes". As there are no christian symbols on anyone of them. Or any mention of it. It's why you don't see much mention of political or religious events in games. As most games, want to stay neutral for logical reasons.

Well, If they celebrate Easter, Hallowen, and St Patrick's Day , they should also celebrate Ramadan and Festival of Sacrifices ;)

Its not Christmas, it is New Year since celebrating Christmas was forbidden in the Soviet Union.

Which makes it non-christian. Easter is a celebration adopted by christianity to make it easier on the recently converted pagans.

St. Patrick's day has mostly devolved into "wear green, drink guinness" day anyhow.

D-Day, Remembrance Day, etc. are never had any religion attached to it anyhow.

 

Turkey, Algeria, Tunisia, etc. aren't Europe to begin with, so for all I care they can have their own server where they can have those celebrations.

Nice try, but I think they dubbed that over.
