We spoke with team captain, zoidbergenstein, about their time in the WGLNA. At the time of this interview, they were 1st in the Bronze League and had just negotiated a sponsorship with Exertus, prior to their merge with eLevate. Read it here.

We are going to be recruiting a few new tankers as well. Anyone who is interested should feel free to hit me up in game or here.

im sure this thread isnt the appropriate place to share however they lied if there is any truth to it... but thats slanderous if there isnt any truth to it. it just seems like someone is mad to me.

I wish there had been a separate thread for the main page announcement. Exertus has done really well, and they put more work into their game than just about anyone. I'd be surprised if they aren't in the gold league, and doing well in it, in the next 2 seasons.

i apologize, lie is not the correct word. i suppose mislead is more accurate and i cant even post the article i read a while back as the page has been deleted. i'm going in assuming that this page on the exertus website was accurate in their quotes. 

 

it said something along the lines of your achievements in wot included placing first in bronze league, which is a flat lie as it was posted b4 bronze league even finished, and that you placed either 1st or very highly in the preseason where you played against gold league teams. now this is where the deception lies. yes you did in fact place very highly in the preseason and yes you did play a few games against gold league teams, however, the first 80% of the preseason you did NOT play against gold league teams, hell most of the teams you played were not even silver. to your credit you did ask that  you be placed into the gold league brackets the last two weeks, however, if i remember correctly, you didn't win a single match. and the top end gold league teams(ie. SIMP and Fnatic) were not even in the preseason. there are much better teams that have actually proven themselves to be good teams in the gold league so why then sponsor some nobody team no one had heard of prior to the preseason event? i can only assume some deception was involved. or perhaps you are just being favored because you are friends with the higher ups in the organization.

 

i do not really care if this organization potentially wastes its time and resources on you, that is on them. and hey, maybe i'm completely wrong and you guys will dominate the gold league in a while. but currently you have not proven to be a top level team and i do think it is an insult to those top level teams who have consistently proven themselves, of which i am not on, for the record.

 I can definitely understand being annoyed with us if you feel other teams deserve it more and if you feel that way I won't bother trying to convince you otherwise. As to us misleading anyone I went back and read exactly what was said and it seems like it was all accurate and very straight forward. The article states that "The team is currently first place in the Bronze League" which was true. We were 18-1 and were first place through the regular season. The achievements also say we were invited to play in the gold preseason which is true and that we were in the top 10% which is also true.

 

I don't want to step on toes, and we know we haven't been playing the game for long, but we like to think of ourselves as one of the hardest working team in World of Tanks and we're all very proud to be representing eLevate in the WGLNA. even if we aren't one of the best teams in the world eLevate has the confidence in our history as a team to put the work and effort it will take to get there. Anyway, hope that clears things up.
