Three out of six posts agree Jim's video should be pasted in every post. :sceptic:

jim sterling: https://www.reddit.c...fcked_up_video/    (focusing on the abuse of DMCA/Copyright Claim.   and Demonitization threat)

original video: https://www.facebook...71566622943302/     (honestly not that bad.  we've all said worse in game at one poitn or another)

 

even milky is getting in on it.  https://www.reddit.c...m_source=reddit

 

whose right whose wrong.

both and both.

 

WG should have never threatened to take the video down, or demonetize his videos.

and foch.....honestly theres nothing wrong with what he did in an overall view.  your allowed to complain and critic a game/company.  its why critics exist.,   though costing his community contributor is an obvious cost from a WG view.

 

and before a certain tomato can shows up here.

slander and critic/complaint are different.    slander is fake claims.  which this wasn't.  his video was based on the stats of the tank, not fake stats of it

 

 

Watch the original video on the FB link. The video that started it all.

Foch released a 2 minute video on why the Chrysler K is indicative to how WG is running WoT into the ground. From what I've read of their PR response, it was mainly the way it was conveyed that they have an issue with.

 

As of right now, the main gripe is that they have possibly threatened to issue a DMCA against Foch for said video if he did not take it down himself. Which is a blatant violation of what the YouTube copyright system is meant for, and should have been filed as a different strike claim.

It's not spin, it's a damn lie. 

 

http://www.businessi...gulation-2017-5

 

Just as the "Patriot Act" was unpatriotic in the extreme, and the "Affordable Healthcare Act" had nothing to do with making healthcare affordable...

 

As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump railed against Wall Street firms like Goldman Sachs, attacked Hillary Clinton for her ties to big banks, and pitted himself as a populist who would stand up to Wall Street. In fact, the official Republican platform included, for the first time, a call to reinstate Glass-Steagall.

Even after taking office, Trump said he would consider breaking up the banks, and economic advisers like Mnuchin and Gary Cohn reiterated support for a "21st-century Glass-Steagall."

 

Mnuchin's statements, however, appear to have nothing to do with the core of Glass-Steagall (or at least its most looming legacy) and appear to simply be an attempt to slap a tough name on another deregulation measure.

I enjoy it when I have someone to play with.  But lately my partner hasn't been wanting to play anything besides his Playstation Vita.

WoT hasn't been that enjoyable for me for a long while (hence the 1.5 year hiatus) since the people I usually platooned and talked with (friends from highschool) and I are all too busy to devote much time to it anymore. WoWS holds my attention just because I love warships and find it nowhere near irritating than what can happen in WoT.

I might come back to WoT if it had PvE, although the proliferation of payola tanks, cash ammo, and bad matchmaking might dampen that. 

 

 

On the WoWS front... the HMS Hood is listed as having rocket AA... I wonder if there's a special animation for that. 

 

Also, Bismark event confirmed to be all PvP, so... guess I'm not bothering.  Would explain the low humans count in PvE right now, maybe.

I still play it regularly

 

Though I haven't paid them cash in quite a while, nor have I really given any effort to grinding new tanks, been more focused on Steam stuff where discounts have real value

It's normal Foch ranting, like he has always done.  Nothing extraordinary.  Not sure why he was made a CC in the first place with his salty attitude.  Everything he said was 100% legitimate, to boot.

This is how I feel about it.  Especially with the premiums that are a big middle finger to same or lower tier tanks.  Half the things they do lately are fine, but half of them are just "Wwwhhhhyyyyyyyy!?".

I started getting some spotty and absolutely terrible lag in WoT a while ago, and it has really dampened my enthusiasm for the game. It's not constant, it's not consistent, and it doesn't affect any other game I play online, but when it rears its ugly head it makes the game unplayable- like teleporting-out-of-cover-and-into-3-enemy-guns unplayable. Add the fact that tier 10 lights were mishandled IMO, the increasing number of premium tanks that are on par or better than tech tree tanks, and me already owning most of the tanks I want, and my desire to play any other game overrides it. Endless Space 2 came out yesterday, Grim Dawn is supposed to get an update with the Inquisitor and Necromancer classes sometime in the near future, STO's massive space balance pass, so desire to play WoT is at a very low point now. To think I used to like this game enough to play it every day for like 4 years and now I can't be bothered.

=_=

 

I might be enjoying it because now that I have over 100 FPS with next to no ping issues, I'm playing decently for once....

 

Plus, you have to admit, all the extra info in the interface really do help with things. I'm finally playing distance warfare properly.

There's a reason I don't get myself in an uproar over news stories... but it's probably better if I just link to one of the people I've been watching a lot from lately.

 

 

 

I also find it ironic that almost all of the people (I do follow PragerU) I pay attention to on YouTube are liberals in spite of the fact that I'm a conservative...

 

EDIT: Un-Spoilered.

Might want to check how the spoiler tag's working.
