Banned from EU forums

Hey everyone,

never a dull moment, eh? :) As some of you might have noticed, I have been permanently banned from EU forums about an hour or so ago for "discussing of unreleased content" (the banning was done by moderator Kacsa1). Well, basically for the leaks. My game account is intact.

Ah well. Doesn't matter. Just heads up - the translations will continue only here from now on.

    I don't agree with them but hardly a shock.

    1. Nope... I was messing around for far too long. No big deal for me tbh.

  2. It annoys me that they continue to fight you rather than embrace your desire to make information available.

  3. Was kind of expected. After all those SuperTest leaks it was expected to happen.

  4. There is an EULA about the content. The new content its available just for a small group of person, the others will see only the final result, not anything else. I love to see the new content in advance.

    But Wargaming wish to present for the public only the final product.

    So they have a point.

    1. Final product where??? They refuse to call it 1.xx

    2. What if I tell you our entire player base is just extensive beta testing the game until 1.x.x?

      Delete
    3. What if I tell you that numbers in software version means nothing?

      WG could easily call version 1.0.0 when they made RU or EU/NA release. It would change nothing in game. There is no rule stating that 0.x.x means beta and 1.x.x means end of beta.

  5. Banned from the forums for your posting leaked stuff in your blog? What do they expect to achieve with it? They are really acting up to their level of intelligence, again. lol.

    ReplyDelete
  6. But you are not "dicussing". You are more realeasing unreleased content. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  7. Your fault, they even made a thread recently to explicitly ban all ST content on the forums. Should have left it on the blog only.

  8. Ah these Russians just do not get it. Over there stopping the media is easy as the government has complete control, threats are enough. In America if you do not like the way you are being reported you buy advertising (sponsors normally get a free ride), buy out your critics (if you own it you control it), or start your own to counteract what you do not like (Fox NEWS). I think there are only two things which will stop this blog, one is SS getting bored the other is WG hiring him. Banning is meh.

    1. But the internet doesn't belong to America nor was it made by America.

      There are little rules to the internet and the video game industry. This one is the release of private information (Supertesters leaks) so its understandable why he was banned.

      Fortunately, those rules end as soon as we get to another website. They have no juristiction here.

    2. Actually you cretin, it was invented in the USA...

    7. Most Americans seem to believe that they made anything worth making and that they're the only ones that are worth anything.

      And they wonder why most countries hate them.

    8. And as for the internet, it was made by a British guy and a Belgian guy. Not America.

  9. I got a warning for posting ur blog on italian section, but I was aware of the risk. Anyway as long as ur game account is left untouched no big deal cause everyone was expecting it sooner or later.

  10. Expected and reasonable. NDAs should be respected and acting as a front for leaks is pretty shitty behaviour.

    No manufactured outrage please.

    1. Thats very curious attitude. You truly feel that way? I mean, I really think the opposite in most cases.

    2. You do know I didn't sing any NDA, right?

    3. I'm pretty sure signing it is enough XD

  11. To be honest, I didn't like the leaks anyway. It takes the suprise, I think.:/ Well, Silentstalker you could start a new account. ;)

  12. Sorry to hear man.... but please keep up this good blog ! :)

  13. Welcome to the club, I am permabanned too because Ectar didn't like my posts and got his moderator friend (whom you got to know now, too) to ban me.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Kacsa1 is a hungarian moderator, and quite funnily he didn't ban anybody earlier when people re-posted your leaks in the hun section...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm shocked by this.

    Why didn't they ever deleteyour posts or close the thread? Sure they could reasonably ban a supertester that had signed a NDA but this isn't the case here.

    Furthermore I do not see how you did any economic damage to Wargaming.

  16. not like you cant make a new account and post from there...

  17. For what it's worth, since you started this blog, I've hardly looked at the forum. It is 99% bullshit and third-hand misinformation. At least you give second-hand bullshit (from Serb).

  18. Kacsa1 in German also known as "Kacksack" (Shitbag) has also warned me about 1 Year ago for discriminating other nations (Introduction of the French Tanks). I said: Oh, French tanks... Did they have 1 Forward gear and 6 Reverse gears and a White Flag as an Consumable?

    1. Your translation is wrong. Learn german.

      Also, you deserved that ban for sure. Learn history.

      There are millions and millions of germans soldiers killed in france, on french soil, in 2 Wars in the last 100 years.

      The Battle at the Somme alone costed over 1.000.000 lifes. Verdun over 350.000 - and the germans simply couldnt get past the french (and later in the war, franco-british) defences, they simply didnt stop resisting, no matter the price.

      So, stupid comments like yours are an insult to the memory of the fallen german and french soldiers alike. Millions of germans didnt die because they were fighting incompetent against cowards; quite the opposite. Ban well deserved for you.

      Delete
    2. Your mini-rant aside, I think the universal opinion of the French military is that they are good for two things only:
      1) retreating
      2) surrendering

      Speaking of which, if anyone is interested I'm selling a genuine WW2 French rifle, never fired, dropped once.

      In other news, the French military was crippled recently when a fire destroyed the countries white flag factory.

    3. Tell that nonsense to the widows of millions killed german soldiers in france by french military. I guess they wouldnt have kind words for your idiocy...

    6. Yes, because Napoleon was from Kentucky. Oh wait...

      Delete
    7. The main reason for why french are made fun of is because of the DISASTROUS amounts of incompetence during WW2.

      The fact that the most modern defence line in the world was captured INTACT is a testament to this incompetence.
      French army had a long history of success followed by a huge DERP, which caused germany to turn much more powerful military wise.

      + the fact that they refused to sink their navy when they clearly lost pissed off the brits immensely, which resulted in their navy also being captured.

      Delete
    8. The Somme? You mean the battle the battle the British and Canadians had to win for the french because all the french leadership could do was throw lives away? The only reason France didn't capitulate was because the commonwealth propped them up.

      Delete
    9. I Dont think, that my German is wrong, because ich bin nämlich ein Deutscher. Aber Anscheinend sind deine Historischen Quellen wohl leicht verschoben.... Millionen und Abermillionen Deutsche Soldaten sind in Russland gefallen. Im Frankreichfeldzug gab es ca. 50000 Deutsche Gefallene. Auf Französischer Seite waren es ca. 300000 Gefallene oder Verwundete. In keinster Weise sollte das Ansehen und die Verdienste bzw. Verbrechen hier verharmlost, abgestritten oder geschmälert werden. Ich hoffe inständig, dass Sie mit meinem Eigentlich recht Guten Muttersprachlichen Deutsch einverstanden sind, auch wenn ich mit Ihrer Meinung nicht unbedingt konform gehe.

  23. Guys, do not care about it, since almost EVERYTHING is forbidden on the forums, and our moderators consider the forum to be their own playground. These people tend to interpret and practice the forum rules according to their own taste.

    Conclusion:
    Don't feed the moderators... Let them enjoy the deserted forum full of nonsense posts.

    And SS continue, what you started, you are the most useful information source, since Lowerlord has started trolling like SerB and been involved in WoWp more seriously.

    Instead of fighting you they should have followed your example.
    I am sorry for your account, but this way your blog will get more attention, even more will come here instead of their forums.

    P.S. Kacsa means duck in hungarian :)

  32. You are the single european community manager and you are doing a really nice job. Shame on Wargaming that they dont like to keep in contact with us europeans. It seems like that Wargaming hates us and only provides the game for earning more money with "less" extra work.

    PS: If u have some information about the future of FV215b heavy tanks. Please leak it. Its pretty quite about this tank.

  33. Everyone knows in Hungary that Kacsa1 is the most retarded player. He is a shame for Hungary :(
    BTW the EULA says multiple accounts are forbidden but he has 2 accounts. Maybe he is a shame for himself too :P

    ReplyDelete
  34. Maybe I'm a strange one but I haven't expected this. I mean I knew this could happened but somehow I thought WG to be reasonable. I just can't think of possible way you were doing harm to WG. On the contrary actually. This blog is a sole thing that keep any sense of community, honest information and kept me attracted to this game.

    I just wish we could something to let WG know how their way of thinking is alien to us. Something what is in my country (a "siema" country btw) called "homo sovieticus".

    All best to you.

  37. Hi Silentstalker,

    another PR-fail of WG.
    I didn't vote in your "Leak-Poll", because it was colloquial for me (nice pictures, not more).
    But your work for the community was great in the forum and I loved it, when you visited the german section.
    Now I have to improve my English to follow you here.
    Thx for your blog!
    Best regards

  38. Without your blog, it would be very boring game, waiting for all the little advancements that WG is doing.

    by banning you from the forums, they showed that they are east-European company culture, with no respect to others people opinions, even their own customers.

    how many companies would pay for their customers to say what they think, and WG is trying to shut them up, quite amazing.

    it's like a retard kid that suddenly finds a gold mine and gets rich while continuing to make mistakes. but, hell, he has a gold mine.

  56. Love this Blog, Silent Stalker.
    Keep it up m8.
    Following on from other comments here, I want to add my 2 cents' worth about the Franco-Ukrainian Sov-Bloc WG and their brilliant customer service and communication skills.

    I recently wrote to them to apply for the post of Historical Editor. Two weeks later I wrote again to ask if they received my first communication and again a week after that. I still haven't had a reply - not even an auto-reply. I did write them a set of instructions how to use the auto-reply feature in Outlook - still didn't help. So I looked on their 'Recruitment' page (enlist with us) to see if they had specifically said they wouldn't reply - it doesn't say that anywhere.
    This sounds a bit arrogant, frankly. I have never experienced a no-reply from any job I have enquired about, ever, with two exceptions where it was clearly stated you would not hear if you were unsuccessful - but those were part of the auto-reply message, so they don't really count!

    ***

    Before I get flamed for not having the skills or qualifications - moot point - I have all of the skills they asked for in both required and desired - MA in Military History, WW1 specialist with plenty of WW2 knowledge, Wargamer for 40 years (passionate, yes) worked in Game Industry 20 years, play WoT (only for 4 months, but got 5 accounts and most of them have t6 - one account for each of the nations except the French as they did not participate in WW2), I teach Game Design, speak French and can write (been published). I guess I'd just like to know if the no-reply and silence is what they do to everybody, or is it just me?

    Signed
    Hurt Feelings in UK.

    PS - please feel free to cry for me and laugh at the next French tank you see in WoT - some of them look really funny!
