It looks like there have been changes at Wargaming, and some staff are now players.

Can you really understand the game until you play it as a player, and not a member of staff?

I see that someone has taken a moderator banning them in past a bit too personally. :popcorn:

Understand, yes, properly run, no, because WG staff is financially tied to the product while players just want a good game. Staff therefore can not be (openly) objective even if they think they can, because at the end of the day if they don't hoover up enough money through good or bad ways, their behind is on the line.

 

That is why in most cases there are external sources hired to analyse products, services and companies, they have no ties to the material being analysed.

 

For instance you have on one side tons of (good) players pointing out that all the over-armoring of heavy tanks rampant premium spam is bad for the overall game experience while at the other side you have WG saying it's fine because it's a mechanic designed to artificially keep bad players alive longer for financial gain.

You seem to be some months behind the news.  Nobody was fired, the old moderating team are still employed by WG but no longer have to moderate. 

 

The new moderating team are not employed by WG, we do it for the fan mail.
