Pagan Online to enter Early Access

9

Greetings everyone,

Wargamings new title Pagan Online has just been released into early access available on Steam and in the WG-Store.

Being part of the Trials players ( Testers)  for PO myself i already had the chance to play this game before and i personally really likes the gameplay which is only PvE with co-op coming at a later point. Each Hero you can play has its own playstyle and adds a lot to the replayability, even if you have to play the same Story over again with each new hero you unlock. It will also have no microtransactions, so all you pay for will be the initial purchase of 26,99 Euros and nothing else. Ingame you can get various customisation options like Skins, Emotes and Pets just by playing the game.

All in all i can recommend PO but please do not take my word for granted, watch other reviews of it and only then make your decision whether you want it or not.

Wargaming Sloppy DMCA Takedowns against 3D Tank modellers

Special thanks to IcedForce for helping to make this article possible & Deconoir for a quick revision!

Greetings,

Last week, an outrage occurred among the community of a 3D model website called Thingiverse after Wargaming.net decided to make a DMCA claim over printable 3D models. So, let me clarify things.

For those unaware, Thingiverse is a website which allows users to share their printable 3D models and while there’s a lot of original content created by the users there also happens to be a lot of stolen intellectual property from games like World of Tanks. It is to no surprise that Wargaming.net would eventually place a DMCA takedown notice on content which is rightfully theirs and they also have attempted to profit from in the past.

Until now sounds like there is no reason for us to be even writing this piece and we would not have but unfortunately instead of taking every copyrighted case individually, Wargaming demanded Thingiverse to remove every model found by searching “world of tanks” (without quotation marks) which brings up every model that has the words “world” and “tanks” in their name or in their description. This caused Thingiverse to remove models that had nothing to do with Wargaming or World of Tanks other than being tanks or having those words. The most affected users from such foolish decision were Zachary Kavulich (TigerAce1945) and m_bergman, who both make printable 3D models from war vehicles using their own sources and skills without using any models from Wargaming titles.

TigerAce1945, in particular, had something to say: Continue reading
