WoT Console: Mercenaries

24

Good day everyone,

Quick post to answer the questions posed in this post, yes, WoT Console is indeed getting a ‘mercenary’ tree…. or half of one to start with:

Here is the full news post for those interested, but the short version is essentially the backstory to Armored Warfare, Frankenstein tanks (rather than the assembly of little known variants from smaller nations that most hoped for) and these are all unlocked through what’s looking to be a version of Personal Missions from PC. Or you can just skip all of that and pay for them directly.  Continue reading

WoT Console: Things to Come?

14

Well, been a while since anything of significance has been hyped for World of Tanks Console, outside of continued map removals and War Stories (some of which were also removed after release).

Up until the middle of May, where slowly hyped up hyped up something over the course of a week, for that something to end up being a teaser for another announcement date two weeks later.

However, thanks to a quick post on the forum this last Sunday (June 3rd), we do have some hint as to what may be coming in this next update (along with hinted at balance passes and sound effects that will finally be updated a year after the sound engine was upgraded), an image of a splash screen:

WG NA EULA

40

Good day everyone,

So the EULA for players under the umbrella of WG NA is having a few revisions and being tied in with it’s Terms of Service. There’s nothing particularly new in it, however the World of Warships community on Reddit have pointed out a few items of curiosity that some of you are undoubtedly familiar with, and will be interesting to see debated in the comments. Now, being the EULA for WG NA, this applies to World of Tanks, WoT Console, Warships, Warplanes et. al.:

  1. Change to ownership

“5.4 Ownership of Your Account. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY HEREIN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU SHALL HAVE NO OWNERSHIP OR OTHER PROPERTY INTEREST IN YOUR ACCOUNT, AND THAT ALL RIGHTS IN AND TO YOUR ACCOUNT ARE AND SHALL FOREVER BE OWNED BY AND INURE TO THE BENEFIT OF WARGAMING. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU HAVE NO CLAIM, RIGHT, TITLE, OWNERSHIP, OR OTHER PROPRIETARY INTEREST IN THE ADDITIONAL FEATURES (AS DEFINED BELOW) THAT YOU UNLOCK OR ACCUMULATE, REGARDLESS OF ANY CONSIDERATION OFFERED OR PAID IN EXCHANGE FOR SUCH ADDITIONAL FEATURES. FURTHERMORE, WARGAMING SHALL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY MANNER FOR THE DESTRUCTION, DELETION, MODIFICATION, IMPAIRMENT, HACKING, OR ANY OTHER DAMAGE OR LOSS OF ANY KIND CAUSED TO THE GAME CONTENT OR ADDITIONAL FEATURES, INCLUDING THE DELETION OF GAME CONTENT OR ADDITIONAL FEATURES UPON THE TERMINATION OR EXPIRATION OF YOUR ACCOUNT.” Continue reading

WoT Console: NA Server Consolidation

6

Quick announcement from WoT Console: The NA servers will be consolidated into a single data center based in Chicago. As it stands, the NA West server will be effectively removed from the server selection with players who normally use it directed to NA East starting today, May 15th. The move to the Chicago center will occur in a few more days after checks.

As it stands, for the Xbox players there is no Asia server at the moment, so best of luck to those playing from the Asia/Oceania region.

Don’t Ask Questions: Moderator Abuse in World of Tanks Console’s Forums

102

Good day everyone,

Brief intro before we get started, this was brought to our attention several days ago by long-time blog reader and console player Firehawk894 after he sought some answers regarding the duties of certain staff members at WarGaming. After seeing the screenshots he provided, and knowing this isn’t the first case of WarGaming moderators abusing their own strike system to get rid of people quicker, we asked if he would like to speak up on the matter. Without further ado:

By Firehawk894

Hello everyone. So recently I logged onto the World of Tank console forums, just to see what the community had been up to lately, another thread complaining about Arty, someone complaining about Gold Ammo and so on. Surprisingly, I had a red flag next to my notifications, when I click on it, what do I find? “Your account has received its third strike”. I thought that was quite strange, given that I have never had a first or second strike during my years on the forums, only minor “educational warnings”. (The system on the WoT Console forums is a five strike system. Strikes are permanently attached to your account with the fifth being a permanent ban from the forums)

It turned out that one of the moderators didn’t take very kindly to me expressing the opinion that the game is being run down by heavy handed moderation, developers that ignore their wider community and job titles that sound like jokes but are actually serious roles.

“GaMePlaY eXpERT”

44

Hello,

over on RSR’s Discord, which btw has reached over 1300 users! We were having a good laugh so I thought about sharing it with you.

I present you, the WoT Console’s “GaMePlaY eXpERT”:

nicememe2

If you think Murazor, a WoT PC is bad (not saying he isn’t, mind), MaxChaos manages to one-up him with a leg behind his back. This guy, the meme that keeps on giving, is now also the head of Supertest for WoT Console. Think for a minute, Wargaming Console fired a good level-headed employee that actually listened and engaged appropriately with the community to give this guy a promotion.

We also wondered what Serb would think of this “Gameplay Expert”, if you’ve been around long enough this was Serb’s opinion on the WT E100:

“Waffenträger auf E-100 is for retards. It will be removed.” – Serb, 1.3.2015, FTR Q&A

There’s no hard science on why WoT Console is the state it is…
