No, they can execute that clause whenever they want, for any reason they want, regardless of how much money the player has spent because in another clause it is stated that the account of the player and all assets on it, paid for or not, are owned by WG.

 

You can put anything in a contract, state, local, and Federal trumps all in the document.   Companies lose battles over click-through contracts frequently enough that standing behind one may not be the safest place in the world

EULAs have been proven valid in many court cases (at least in the US).  Portions that do not conform to State or Federal Laws are disallowed though.  The only EULAs I know of that have been declared invalid are those that can only be agreed to after a purchase.....for instance, buying a program and the EULA is agreed to during installation of the program.  That is not the case with WOT.

First, how the [edited]do you get "Secrative"?  You did it twice.  Christ.

Second, Johnny Cochran's dead, so who else is going to take this case?  Gloria Allred?

Third, you have been making unfounded accusations - that's slander and libel.  Read up on them, or ask your "lawyer" about them.

Fourth, "government sanctions"?  Seriously ... they caught the Bills cheating - repeatedly - in actual sports and what happened?  Oh, right, nothing.  Because that's not what governments do.  Apparently you paid as much attention in your civics classes as your spelling lessons.

Wargaming is threatening to ban me for asking tough questions about their ethics.

 

I have engaged an attorney and will engage them legally if they do.

 

We need to force their hand to correct blatant and ongoing problems with the game that are not by accident.

 

Help me to hold them to higher standards of ethics.

 

It's...a...game.

 

It's...THEIR...game.

 

If you don't like it don't play. Or even better, offer suggestions on how to make it better.  But "I've hired an attorney" BS?  Geez, get a life.

Your Last poll results not valid,OP?

 

Unfortunately, when everybody asked in the last thread if the OP could be any more ridiculous, he took it as a challenge.
