You know, folks, sometimes you can just see the shit storm coming. You see it coming from MILES away.
Now, you don’t WANT the shit storm to happen. Of course not. You WANT it to die out before it gets to you. But that rarely if ever happens. Typically, as in this case, it just gets stronger and stronger as it heads your way.
Then it hits.
And here it is:
There has been talk since day one about Russian Bias in this game. Most times, it’s met with the same trolling and bullshit posts from the corporate shills that any other thread that points out flaws is met with.
But not this time, folks. Because, you see, this time it was someone reputable. This time it was a company man that has for YEARS towed the company line. This time he had proof. This time, it was a well thought out, well written dissertation on blatant, wanton Russian Bias in the game to a level best described as fucking ridiculous.
Now, BEFORE we get in to all of it, it’s important to point something out here in the interest of full disclosure:
Scorpiany and I got off on the wrong foot from the outset and we still have our differences of opinion. I have always thought of him as something of a Wargaming shill and he has, to his credit, proven me wrong on at least three different accounts. That said, he didn’t bring this shit to me. I watched it all happen and now am in the position to post about it because that’s just not Scorpiany’s style.
But it’s definitely my fucking style. It’s right up my alley because it once again shows how fucking awful Wargaming is and how absolutely rotten to the core their moderators are and always have been.
All of that out of the way, here we go. Here’s Scorpiany’s Original Post.
Now, if you click on that, you’re going to see this:
Wow. A complete fucking deletion. Wiped out completely. Not locked, not moved to locked archive so everybody can still see all the trolling of the corporate shills, just COMPLETELY FUCKING OBLITERATED.
It must have been bad.
It must have been outrageous!
Now, just so we have something to compare to so we’re not accused of “EWOT Bias”, let’s take a look at the most recent “locked” threads that were so bad they warranted being locked and the OP banned:
OK. Nothing so outrageous with foul language or porn or any bullshit like that, but obviously shit posts. So why are they allowed to stay up for viewing?
Well, it’s simple, really: because they’re shit posts that everybody shows up and trolls the OP with insults over. Wargaming likes that because they THINK it makes them look good and the player base look like the problem.
So obviously, to be outright deleted, Scorpiany’s post must have been a flaming shit post from hell, right?
Here it is, in its entirety, unedited by us in any way, shape or form:
Come on WarGaming, this isn’t remotely funny. You’ve been flopping around with Ranked Battles for a year now, and you still can’t get the XP system working properly?
You’re not even trying to hide the Russian bias in this game. The recent Russian tanks that got buffed are now better than all direct counter-parts, and now you’re favoring Russian IS-7’s in the XP system?
This really is a joke and a half. Why is it that IS-7’s magically get bonus XP for doing significantly less than everyone else?
To put this into perspective… Keep in mind, spotting counts for half of normal XP.
- My E4 did 3,655 damage, 104 spotting and 1 kill at point-blank range. This is a combined 3,707 damage worth of XP.
- The IS-7 above me did 1,869 damage, 1,155 spotting and one kill. This is a combined 2,447 damage worth of XP.
This means that the IS-7 did 1,260 combined damage worth of XP LESS than I did… Yet he gets more XP and the chevron?
Also, look at our Pz.Kpfw VII vs. the IS-7 above him.
- Pz. Kpfw VII did 1,633 damage and 142 spotting at point-blank range. This is a combined 1,704 damage worth of XP.
- The IS-7 did 0 damage and 1,170 spotting. This is a combined 585 damage worth of XP.
This means that the other IS-7 did 1,119 combined damage worth of XP LESS than our Pz. Kpfw VII did… Yet he gets more XP?
The Russian bias here is beyond blatant. It’s sad, it’s pathetic and WarGaming isn’t even trying to hide it.
You want to get more XP in Ranked Battles? Play a Russian tank. You may as well anyway – The Obj. 430U is better in almost every single way than a 113.
And again… IS-7 does 0 damage, 446 damage, spotted 1 tank. That counts as 223 damage worth of XP. The BatChat? 1,152 points of damage on targets he was spotting himself. 0 assisted, but spotted 3 tanks. That’s 1,152 damage worth of XP.
So why does the IS-7 get more XP, yet agian?
The system is rigged / biased to favor IS-7 tanks, for reasons I don’t know.
It’s rigged for IS-7’s, and it’s unbelievably obvious. They’re not even hiding it.
Want more proof? Not convinced yet? Look through this entire album of IS-7’s getting significantly more XP, for doing 0-1,000 damage; than tanks that did 2,000, 3,000 or even more combined damage. https://imgur.com/a/v8nwg
That’s it, folks.
Outrageous, isn’t it? Of course not. It’s one of the most well thought out, well written, completely unbiased, factual posts I’ve ever seen.
And you know what? I fucking KNEW it wasn’t going to last the instant I read it. I KNEW he was going to get into a world of shit over it.
So it must have caused all kinds of outrage, right? It must have gotten everybody so fucking worked up that all hell broke loose, right?
Everybody is agreeing with it! There is peaceful discussion going on! Nobody is really even that surprised over it!
So why was it deleted?
For all of the reasons I just stated, that’s why. It was a well thought out, proven, factual posts that everybody looked at and knew it was truth.
And Wargaming just can’t have that, can they?
Of course not. So they delete the thread and then BAN SCORPIANY FOR POSTING IT!
No shit folks. They fucking banned him for THAT post!
HOW THE FLYING FUCK COULD
THEY POSSIBLY HAVE BANNED
HIM FOR THAT POST?!?!?!
Well, for that we have to defer to Wargaming. Here’s why THEY said they banned him:
Name and shame, folks. They banned him for name and shame.
Apparently, pointing out BLATANT FUCKING RUSSIAN BIAS BEYOND ANY DOUBT is now considered a name and shame by Wargaming.
Can you believe this mother-fucking shit?
Well, they can ban him and delete his post there, but the shit storm from this is just getting going. Things are coming to a head here QUICKLY in North America. Dozens of Wargaming employees have already been shit canned, more are going to get shit canned on the move to Austin, still more will be shit canned once they get there, servers are closing down…
All that’s left now are a couple of die hard fans, the fucking anime pedophiles, the Nazi’s, and of course, the fucking bullshit forum mods who are all of the above.
I’ve got 5 bucks riding on Scorpiany losing his Contributor Status over this shit.
And that will be the biggest fucking mistake, and probably the last fucking mistake on that magnitude, that Wargaming will ever make in North America: Getting rid of the absolute last person left Wargaming has in North America that has any credibility at all.
But hey, that’s Wargaming. That’s how they roll: Hide the truth, promote racism, pedophilia, violence, hate…yeah! That’s what Wargaming wants.
Facts, fair play, honest discussion…that’s not on the menu at Wargaming because it shows the world who they really are and what they really stand for.
