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

99

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…

WoT Console January Q&A Roundup

9

Good day everyone,

Here is the January Q&A roundup for World of Tanks Console, taken from Facebook Q&As and portal articles:

Why do the Defender and Patriot have higher costs on Console than they do PC?

Well, that is simple. The answer is because World of Tanks PC is a different game than World of Tanks Console. And their tanks are not always the same as our tanks even though they might look the same, the stats are sometimes different, the costs are sometimes different. So… uh.. You can’t ever, for anything whether it’s… uh… the maps, the gameplay, the costs of the tank, the look of the tank, the stats of the tank, anything like that. You can never compare the two. The only thing that they really have in common is that they are both made by Wargaming, they both have the name World of Tanks, and they both have tanks in them. So that’s uh… the reason.

What about fog or smoke screens?

Fog would be an environmental thing. Smoke screens: the design team looked at that and they weren’t too keen on that. If it was fog it would be implemented in a way that wouldn’t affect gameplay that much. It’s tricky because it would block your visibility, how far the tank can see, um, and I feel like a lot of players don’t like Sandstorm variants for exactly that reason… so if we implemented something like fog in the maps, we don’t want to make it uncomfortable for the person playing.

Hello,

Following yesterday‘s article, Wargaming Console has updated changed their VK 45.03 Adler article on the portal to properly credit greyweasel UK:
