As many of you know SirFoch from the youtube channel "TheFochYou" has been highly critical of WarGaming's recent questionable updates. As WG has been launching premium tank after premium tank, they have slowly manage to make them quite better than the non premium counterparts. In the past WG was very adamant about no making their premiums better than the non premiums for the sake of balance. As I think back the closest they came to braking this promise was the IS6 which is a far cry from what the T26E5 (Patriot), M4 mle .49 (Liberte), Obj 252U, and now the Chrysler K are to the game today. I find it highly objectionable and it is quite hypocritical of WarGaming to react to criticism in the manner they did. Although it is fair to say WG always acts in their best interest regardless of the issue and what the outcome maybe.

 

Final thoughts: lastly the one recent thing that WG has manage to fix has been the arty which is a step in the right direction. Hopefully WG will take a step back and start fixing all the broken things they have in the game today.  It has been 8 years and we are still unable to balance the game.

 

Here is Foch's video, judge for yourself.

WG needs to understand you can't pick and choose who gets to say what about your product. that's not how this works.

If he had early access to it, then they might.

WG is a company from Belarus which was a part of USSR. They think they are still there.

Profit over player base.

 

The greed capitalism creates seems to destroy everything.

SirFoch has always been one of the biggest whiners, complainers, [edited]on twitch, I wouldnt listen a word he has to say because  he is such a negative [edited]about everything. 

if he gets sniped or snap shotted from across the map its nothing but [edited]RNG but if he does the exact same thing its his skill and knowledge of the game, if he shots someone and it bounces its once again [edited]RNG (wargaming fix your crapgame) but if he bounces a shot its because of his angling and knowledge of the game.

 

the guys a complete [edited]and i dont see why people continue to watch such a negative person.

I was literally minutes away from buying the new tank, then this drama popped up... Looks like I'm not buying it anymore. GG, WG.

I also wish they would stick with the original premise of the premium tank (not quite as good as standard versions maybe better in one or 2 ways but thats it nothing too major)

 

However its their game and they are able to whatever they want with it - its just a shame they are going this route but hey its the way of this world unfortunately

SirCircon had his Highway video removed as well. WG's cracking down at this point it seems. I'm not sure whether Circon still has his Community Contributor status or not, but some sources rumor that he's had it removed as well; since his video was taken down.

 

I would agree that SirFoch went too far in his video to be doing a review as a Community Contributor. Circon on the other hand, I'm not sure whether it was justified.

That was when prems would have preferred matchmaking.

Hi folks,

 

I'm closing this topic before it gets too out of hand. The EU community team has a post explaining the issue. I don't have all the facts at the moment so I don't want to say something untrue and some of this may not apply to this situation. 

 

I work with the NA contributors directly and our policy here is not to remove content we as a Company may disagree with. We want contributors to express their honest opinions in a constructive way. That said, Contributors that we work with directly are held to a higher code of conduct and standards since what they express is often promoted by Wargaming. They are free to disagree with us as long as it's constructive and not just raw anger.

 

We don't want to silence opinions about the game, in fact we value your input greatly. I'll leave this thread visible so people can take a look for themselves but this is what I'm just closing this topic. Please do not create more threads on this issue.
