Amagad, EU server discrimination? Plus the EU Q&A... ugh

This was posted today on NA forums:


Seriously, RU server has Olga Sergeevna (yea, she's back):


US server has Pico Mause and what does EU server get? Ecturd. Not sexy. Why can't the EU server get some pretty moderator like that?

Preferably someone who's not...



....and who doesn't fix competitions... :)

Okay, on more serious note: the US show is great. The_Chieftain is a great guy and despite what he thinks of me (as you can imagine, I am not the most popular person with WG), I respect him a lot (just like Overlord).

This show is just... I don't know. Funny (so are the short weekly newsreels the US server has). I guess I should be grateful for getting my ass banned on the EU server, without that, I'd never have noticed the US forums. I just wonder what's the real difference between the US and EU forums. From what I can tell, they both have their share of decent people and their share of retards, they both have their legends (Garbad, the T110 thread for the US, "professional pro gamerers" and "garage sluts" for the EU).

What I am really missing on the EU server are short newsreels like the US server has. Back in December 2012, Czechout mentioned that there might be a short videoblog series coming, featuring the EU community organizers. Now, I think that's not a bad idea (back then I didn't like it very much because the idea was to make it about the inner World of Tanks EU office works and not about the game), if it focuses on the game itself, can be combined with the community organizer persona. Like this:


See? It's not that hard.

That brings me again to another sore spot of the EU forums: the Q&A answer thread. This time it's interesting. As usual, most answers were known in advance, but the AMX 1948 was confirmed (that never happened before!). New upcoming game modes confirmed? Well that's odd... because Storm (or SerB) answered not so long ago there are no such plans. The repair costs for artillery were also said to be rebalanced. E-25 - "soon"? How soon? Not in 8.6 I think. Does that mean that 8.7 will be German tank destroyers? And no Swiss tanks for EU tree? What the HELL? Swiss tanks were mentioned earlier by SerB.

I don't know. Confusing. I'll ask a Russian friend to confirm some of the stuff in the official Russian Q&A thread. Standby.

    2. Never heard of her - is that a mod?

  2. I lurked NA a lot, though they recently unlocked Gameplay Discussion temporarily because the servers had problems properly recognising battle counts. And apparently I can keep posting there now \o/

    I've noticed that on the NA forums, the "unicum league" seems to be more well-recognised. And threads seem to swell up much faster in there (well, EU obviously has more posts in the other language sections...), just look at what happened with the Epic Thread. Not gonna be long before it reaches 4k pages.

    And yeah, I'm kinda jealous about some of the stuff NA has.

    1. Well, this is one of the aspects of the US server that bothers me, there seem to be proportionally more elitist twats there, drawn to Garbad. However, it's not so big an issue, some national EU communities have such amounts of mouthy unicums too.

      Epic Thread is great :) Some really interesting info there from time to time.

      Delete
    2. This is one of the strengths of the US forum. The bad players spewing bad advice have been shouted down quite thouroughly in this game. Thus the forums have quite a lot of good advice rather than the crap that flourishes in games where the commnity encourages a wrong opinions are still valid mentality.

      The analysts won here.

    3. Garbad is actually a pretty good person if you leave out artillery and history. Of course, he is a bit CW-centric, but still he gives out usable information.

      Delete
    4. If that Garbad is the same that played PoTBS long ago, I understand a lot....

      Besides, yes he is a elitist, and has an abrasive way of lecturing, but also has good knowledge of what he says.

  3. I agree that the EU server seems to be neglected. We have the worst Q&A with Devs commonly feeding conflicting information and informing us later than other servers about patches and updates. I have noticed the EU website has been down most of the afternoon and that 8.5 Release post was uploaded shortly after i had even downloaded the game. This Server is a mess

    1. Don't forget Moderators who do not give a fuck about the EU community ;) We cant forget about those, can we? :D :D

    2. Funnily enough, US moderators seem okay. It's just the EU ones (like the infamous BigBadVuk, Idahou etc.) who are a bunch of retards.

  4. BTW, why doesn't WG like you? I thought only WG EU had their jimmies rustled by the Czechout incident and the leaks- or is it something else?

    3. btw ss,
      some days ago you also posted something starting with Amagad, but you deleted it before I read it, what was that about?

      Delete
    4. Hmmm can't remember really...

    5. "Ecturd" and "The walking whore"? Hard to take you serious when you keep putting up garbage like that.

      Delete
    6. That's not her name but hey.

      Delete
    7. *shrugs* Just my sense of humor. :) My dislike for Ectar is well known, ever since the Czechout affair. He's probably a nice guy, but I hate holier-than-thou types.

      And as for anyone taking me seriously, that's every person's choice.

  6. Well EU banned your blog/link to it. While on NA forums it's alright to post it. That says alot. And Olga is fucking hot! i bet Victor hits dat booty everyday lol!!

    1. She's SerB's daughter... so... doubt it :)

    2. Really? Anyway where can we see her, I rapidly glimpsed over the RU youtube channel but I couldn't find her, am I doing it wrong?

      Delete
    3. what she is serbs daughter,
      fuuuuuuuuuuuuu
      now i can't fap to her anymore

      Delete
    4. She is not SerB's daughter. SerB daughter is ~15 years old!

      Delete
    5. I think she is. Also, check her name. Olga Sergeevna - SerB's name is Sergei Burkatovsky...

      Delete
    6. I'm LoooSeR from The Epic thread, and believe me, she is not SerB's daughter. This topic was covered in Ru forum, where it was found that SerB really have daughter - Olga Sergeevna(lol), but she is ~14-16 years old.

      Delete
    7. Oh, okay, I stand corrected then :)

      Delete
    8. Q: Is Olga Sergeevna (Ola) from WG news your daughter?
      A: My daughter’s name is Olga Sergeevna. My daughter is well-known in WG. (Notice: there was no exact answer, neither yes or no. - Lia)

      Delete
    9. Sergeevna ist not a name ist the "fathers name" (commen in exs sowjet) so if she were her daughter then it would be: Olga Burkatovsky Sergeevna
      male forme would be: Iwan Burkatovsky Sergeeovitch


      so for exampel Paris Hilton -> Paris Hilton Richardovna

  9. The real reasons why US operation is better than EU:

    1. The US still has a work ethic - their employees expect, and are expected, to work hard, for relatively low pay. In France, where the EU operation is run, there are strict limits on the amount of work employees can do and wage rates in Paris are comparatively high.

    2. WG has long had ambitions to expand in the US, so even if the WOT customer base has remained rather small, they still run a fairly large operation there. This is now bearing fruit, in the form of recent acquisitions (GPG).

    3. The head of the US operation is, I believe, Victor Kislyi's brother, whereas the head of the EU operation is just some random employee.

    2. From wat I've seen I'd say more woman than that Pico Maus, and would probably win in a fight too.

  13. Yes, biggest problem in WG Eu community is lack of videos with some women...

    Seriously, I do not care about videos and I do not need them. Last WG video I was watching was last year. I prefer reading news. And if I want to watch video with women I go somewhere else (or watch women live ;) )

    1. Oh yea, right, sorry, I forgot. Well I deleted it because it's not really related to WoT in any way. I'll make my personal blog for something like that.

  15. It's strange to me how lightly moderated the EU forum is. I suspect this is because they have paid moderators with a lot of ground to cover rather than unpaid volunteer/community moderators.

    I'd alros like to see them lead thing a bit more - are in the map threads they've just created and close a lot more duplicate/off topic stuff.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's brutally moderated if someone mentions the moderators' (lack of) work, and if someone just makes a little fun of WG. But when somebody needs a help... They are nowhere.

      Delete
    2. It's not as obvious as that. People can post promoting competeing products - WT and they don't seem to care. On most other company privided forms I've seen it is common that that is not allowed.

      There are dozens of sweary complain threads every day and they don't do anythign uless they are reported.

      It's not about locking down critisim of WG, it's juist they need to avoid the complaint spam where everyone hits new thread rather than reply.

  16. Problem with the EU staff is the same as the problem with the EU server, instead of just using English as its main language they have to hold everything back, news items, competitions, special announcements etc while every other language out there in Europe is translated for.

    Russian server just speaks Russian, US server just speaks English, but mainland Europe being what it is, and hating everything English (just see Eurovision results every year) they refuse to just use the worldwide common language. Until a one language policy is adopted by the EU community then things will never get better.

    Communication is the key to everything in life, without it you won't get very far.

  17. Yea especially when poles and germans go fucking crazy and spam the chat with their language. Glad im on NA server.

    Man you should see all those funny kids on NA server after school, calling names, threatening, talking random funny sht. Im telling you if you want to laugh hard, come on NA server and watch the chat, when US people enter the game.

    ATM most of them are sleeping and there's only asians and brazilians on the server right now who dont talk at all. But vietnamese players are quite nice. I once called one a charlie and he TK'ed me xD

  18. Is The_Chieftain Irish? He has a similar sounding accent.

    1. As I understand it he is American, but went to school in Ireland and actually did his first military and tank tours in the Irish military (turns out you can do one stint before you're a citizen in most countries). The accent has never left.

  19. Well,maybe that guy who TKed you wanted to had given name Charlie by his parents (instead of Nguyen),but he didnt,so you reminded him of his troubled childhood :-)
