Regarding the "corruption" cause

Hello everyone,

a few (and hopefully last) words to the whole "corruption" affair, related to the posts springing up on the EU forum.

First: please don't paint me as a martyr, saint or whistleblower. I never intended to screw Wargaming, to act as an agent, it was indeed private conversation between two people with no whistleblowing intention. As XO_Foucault wrote: if anyone's private life leaked on the internet, everyone would be shocked. That is actually why I removed the post - not under duress from Wargaming, but because I had a phonecall with the person mentioned in my thread and I decided not to act out of spite or righteous anger anymore, but I did what I felt was the right thing (the same goes for posting it in the first place - felt like the right thing to do for a guy who felt cheated and angry).

Second: From XO_Foucault's post (please note he was implied of corruption in my post too, being the boss of the person mentioned) I have the "we did nothing wrong, he broke the rules and he had to go". I am fine with the second part. I broke the rules and I had to go - fair enough. But if I see anymore of the "nothing happened" shit and this gets swept under the rug, the post goes right back where it was.

I don't want to start a holy crusade against corruption. I don't want to become a martyr. I know how world works. I don't even want this to affect the implied person's life forever. She doesn't deserve that. But I DO want Wargaming to admit its mistake and do something about it, possibly by cleaning house (including XO_Foucault - yes, I know a lot, mate, trust me - I didn't post the worst stuff yet).

Edit: I NEVER "sneaked" anything into the old posts. Stop accusing me of shit I haven't done.

Edit 2: "Nothing was rigged" my ass. The post is back, I won't let people make me look like a liar. I thought you already learned your lesson.

  4. It's funny how her boss, the one in question came to the EU forums only to defend her and blame you Frank, very funny...

    Maybe you did got cheated and you were angry for that, anyone would be, but that doesn't change the fact that some wrong sh*t happened there and it will probably still happen in the future.

    I never liked WG or their game, I just liked the tanks and the fact that this is the only game I can find all these great vehicles in one place, that made me give them my money, but they don't deserve my (our) money, for all the knows reasons + this one now.

  5. Czechout: "Me and Silentstalker were friends". My ass. I really wonder if anyone in WG has any common sense - they accuse me of lying and think I won't post the whole shit right back where it was? I really am kinda pissed off atm. They could have just stayed quiet and it would die down, but no.

  10. Not going to comment on what's happened, as frankly I haven't got a clue so I don't know anything about the rights and wrongs of it. I just want to post here that you were one of the best community members on the EU forums and you're going to be badly missed.

    All the best to you Silentstalker

  11. Martyr? Saint? It is just a cheap video game with cheap competitions... Go back to reality, dude - you will be forgotten after 0.8.3 is out (because of all "Chinese are OP" treads).

    2. Hardly mate, EU forum is turning into a major shit storm atm.

      Trust us, you have our full support as this is not only about you (dont take this the wrong way), or rigged competitions, or EU staff that doesnt even play the game.
      Nah, this was cooking among the player base for a looong time and it finally erupted, thanks to your effort and proofs.

      To make you feel better, this just got posted on forum, its hilarious :D

  12. I would suggest you pass details on to the French Police... corruption in competitions is not legal anywhere in the EU

  13. LOL,WG is trying its best to cover up the truth and make you into a scapegoat........Pathetic

  14. SS I highly recommend you make *everything* you have on WG public. Their reaction to your post is nothing short of disgraceful, their stance apparently being one of smearing you and pretending nothing is wrong. Let us all have a clearer picture of WG's lack of ethics.

    1. No. There is more but it involves some really private corporate stuff I learned from other sources too and I don't want the fireball turned into the nuke. I'll use it only on direst of circumstances (police is involved, I get sued or stuff like that).

  15. I don't understand why the officials from WG at Minsk do nothing about this issue at WG office in Paris.

    Did the ban your WoT game account, to, SS?

    1. This is an absolutely inappropriate punishment for you, since your game account has nothing to do with this issue and your form posts.

      So, I hope that WG art least gives you your game account back. By the way, the Facebook page of "Czechout" seems to have disappeared.

  16. Hey man, I went on your forum thread and thought it was weird that there were about 30 pages missing.

    I also noticed that your OP was edited by Ectar.

    On the last few pages people talk about something going on with you and its all 'hush hush'.

    Can you please message me of whats up? I cant seem to find any informative posts on the forum.

    I know I maybe asking for much but can you please send me the story on adi78@hotmail.co.uk?

  17. Another interesting issue would be to understand why you started the revelation. The whole thing did not look like an issue before. Is that the final result of an attempt of blackmail ? You are right, that would not make you a martyr at all.

    1. Why? Out of spite mostly. I never pretended to be a great person, a nice guy or a martyr. Nothing close to that. I am not a nice person really - yes, Czechout burned. I clearly state I was a part of it, I am guilty and I admit it.

  18. http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/194919-temporary-freeze-on-community-contests/

    Your practically a hero to us.
    There have been so many contests that where the winner should now have won and thanks to you, in just half a day have completely turned things around.

    Despite your uncouth methods I believe it had to be done.

  19. I remember when in EVE there were accusations of wrong doings by devs, soon after the game was down as it had been targeted by haking groups. There was no compensation to players in that case but in WOT dont WG have to give back premium time if the site is down, I hope this situation does not escalate to that level
