If you ask a question of any importance instead of softball ones, they will ban you in a heartbeat. Who was that WGing employee who posted a pic of his ban hammer?

They closed it about an hour ago, they have heard all they wanted to hear and don't want to hear anymore.

subject went to the lootboxes and WG got strangely hush hush about everything.... then the thread closed after a minor at best deviation from its main topic. 

Yep, and that deviation (the Oklahoma discussion) actually ended up being basically self-moderated by myself and @SkywhaleExpress back on course, as we realized thread derailment was occurring (shoutout to @CaptHarlock_222 for making the alternate thread for us to continue the other discussion and @steelrain97 for basically pointing out the thread derailing at the time, thank you both!).

When I came back after about an hour or so after this, the thread had been locked! and apparently lootbox discussion was in effect, so I don't know WHY that really resulted in thread derailment....But honestly, I would think that lootbox discussion falls under the category of "monetization", which was CLEARLY discussed in the WG apology in the first place. Very odd to shut down the thread due to that, as there's literally zero reason to have shut it down over the previous discussion, which was clearly ended and the chat had moved on....

I'm more curious about what insulting or dismissive thing is going to come out of Sub_Octavian's mouth next, it's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

*sighs* He's like the Rian Johnson of WoWs, seriously...

It was the discussion about them being delisted on Cypress Exchange and then going off topic from there, I think. They didn’t like that bit for sure. I know our part didn’t help, but we did stop and come here. 🤷‍♂️

Oh right, that. Yeah, I just re- read the part there....insinuations, Cypress Exchange yadda yadda, accusations, insulting and such. Dicey stuff. It totally derailed the thread, darn it. That wasn't even remotely us either. Literally 1 entire hour AFTER our discussion lols! That's a shame though...

Yeah, unfortunate, but that's the nature of the forum. I was kinda looking forward to @Ev1n_NA coming back to re-engage with the discussion too. Hopefully there is some juicy stuff in the stream.

Heaven forbid they delete off-topic posts and discipline those thumbing their nose at the import of the discussion.  Easier just to shut things down.

Would prolly require more effort the WG is willing to put in. While the apology looks good their past squarely tells people to not buy it.

And after I and Skywhale both self-modded and got the thread back on track(that was the Oklahoma discussion)....but then someone brings up lootboxes and/or Cyprus Exchange like an hour later and boom, "thread derailed", no chance of recovery?

....Yeah, I'm still a bit salty we lost that thread over something like that.

The Moon Princess

WG, probably: "When in doubt, shut it out!"

EDIT: Well, Ev1n opened up a new thread for us, yay!

Sadly, it is WG we are talking about here. Effort and honest work is beneath the company as a whole. Every now and then, we have a few decent community managers or rogue employees that actually care.

Hathore, Muggsy, Tadaah, Niko, Fem, they all end up in better places of employ (hopefully) instead of making a lasting affect. 

We can hope this time is different and all, but trust and verify is still the more realistic approach.

What power do they have? The power to moderate their game forums and exercise control over their service. No more, no less. Any other power, you give them (whether they want it or not). 

It's an entertainment and (I think) educational product, not a government, economy of any scale, nor a deadly virus roaming the population. And there, you have much more to worry about.

So enjoy it, make recommendations, let others enjoy it, but for your own sake, don't let World of Warships dominate your life or thinking. And if it is, you should consider whether that indicates a problem.

Oh, Ok then. I mean, it's a shame the thread got locked for that, buuut I checked into that thing you were talking about and that stuff's pretty old anyways (2015 I think?) sooo it shouldn't really cause any issues....weird. Oh well, at least a new thread is open again!
