Does anybody know why my account would just be renamed?  I logged in for the first time today and I was renamed from Wittman73 to RenamedUser_1001278837.  I have no idea what's going on.

Back in the WoT days WG renamed "Wittman's Medal" to "Boelter's Medal" - for historical reasons they object to that name.

I don't even recall choosing my username, I do know it carried over from WoT, which I played exactly two games of.  If WG changed my username because somebody complained they should have at least given me the option to pick a new one.

1) WoT has always had a policy not allowing the promotion or encouragement of national socialism in any way.  In the past, this rule has been enforced around Clans that have tried to take the name of SS Panzer units or anyone who utilized the pageantry or RP flavor of such a unit.  Some people have pointed out the dual standard of having a medal named after arguably the most famous tank ace of the SS.”

Because Hitler was evil, whereas Stalin was a Benevolent, Christ like figure, who urinated rainbows and defecated mounds of the finest chocolates.

What is funny is they will nit pick the name Whittman but I bet they would let you name yourself Stalin73. Naming yourself after the greatest tank commander in history not OK. Naming yourself after one of the evilest men to ever walk the face of the earth...that is OK.

Interesting.  So I'm guessing that WG doesn't actively check the usernames, they wait until somebody reports it, because I had 3750 battles under Wittman73.  I honestly don't remember choosing that name, I seem to remember it being generated when I first played WoT, but that was so long ago I could be wrong.

I think there is a check for obvious and blatant issues.  The rest are brought to their attention by reports or something the WG staff sees.

Your name clearly violated the rules, and someone wearing silk panties got them twisted, sent in a ticket, and got you unbaptised.

I think you should inform them it is an ode to Slim, albeit mis-spelled, and they should restore your username.

BUT Stalin was on the WINNING TEAM. He was an ALLY ... nay ... a COMRADE !  

Well, that and the fact that at the end of the war, Stalin was in a position to prevent general access to records of camps and mass executions. GIs and photojournalists weren't filling the consciousness of the free world with pictures and anecdotes of Russian atrocities.

I had to google it because I'm not familiar with anything offensive about the name. The only thing I could come up with is some German tank commander. I assume that's why because OMG NAZIS@#$*&(*@#&$(*@#!!!

Wittman was a card-carrying Nazi, and hailed as the personification of Aryan virtues due to his war record. Also doesn't help that he was an SS tank commander.

Basically the Nazi version of John Basilone or Alvin York.....

Isn't that naming and shaming?

Although Jerk (actually JERK) hasn't played any games yet, so maybe it's ok.....

I think I should report your new name.  It contains a Home Depot SKU code for something called Douglas Fir Merced Traditional Smooth Outlooker, and I find that highly offensive!
