I like Little White Mouse's reviews and I have used them to inform many decisions about buying ships. (Even when the botes are bad the reviews are gud).

I like Flamu's accent but I thought he was Serbian or Russian or something. (Someone said he is Finnish).

I have almost 3kg of frozen potatoes in my freezer. (Kiss me, I'm Irish!).

he doesn't sound Slavic. most probably it is ugro-finish, we had a few hungarians in the office and it was similar to Flamu's accent

It's funny to see this flashback to 2018.

Watching Flamu was not controversial then!

Well not as much.

in my opinion a few WG CCs became a bit overconfident at the moment. i have respect for mighty j. though,  probably because of his age and gentleman manners. CCs tend to be preoccupied with the game they play, like all the world spins around it or them.

for casuals like me, this is a 3 - 4 games slot per day and back to reality again

Yeah in a way.

I don't know how to put this without flaming every popular (former) CC and their followers but...

It's WG and CCs are not devs.

It's WGs game and they've pretty clearly done their own thing for years with their games. 

CCs and those of us who follow them and watch all their stuffs account for 2/5ths of f--- all of the playerbase. We all need to realise this and set realistic expectations. None of this fiasco should be a surprise.

I suspect early on CCs felt like they had more of a say in WoWS dev because WG was still refining their vision of it and so were more open to input, clearly they haven't been like that for some time.

 

Expectation vs Reality.

When the two collide one of the results is anger. If you can't change the reality (pretty obvious we can't), then we need to temper our expectations.

 

I would imagine some of the folks at WGHQ would be looking at the CCs as arrogant and obnoxious adolescents having a tantrum... And if that's the case they aren't likely to change anything based on that behaviour. I suspect this POV is commonly held during each fiasco and could explain some of their responses.

Sad times.

It is time to show that CCs made the game and they can break it equally as well. There is only one vision for the game: fleecing money and laundering it.

I watched a fair bit of Mademoisail and Ev1n's official stream last week.

To their credit, they pretty much open fielded a wide variety of questions.

I can't fully explain it but Sail and Ev1n were being representatives of a company that makes a game in order to make money...

...and players were being people who play and enjoy a video game and who thought their views were vaild and should be taken seriously.

...

There was this divide between the two "groups" discussing the game that was very obvious to me but something I can't fully expand and explain.

It was like, each of them were right - from a certain point of view.

 

Both sides seem to be suffering from the "Expectation vs Reality" phenomenon.

 

BOTH sides.

 

I see that here on the forum and in other discussion areas for the game A LOT.

 

I don't think dismissing players as being entitled brats is entirely correct - but it's partially correct.

I don't think condemning Wargaming for wanting to make money is entirely correct - but it's partially correct.

Agreed

But at the end of the day it's their game, they are the owner and developer and we are just the players. Whether they listen and act on our feedback or not is up to them, they have all the power. And thinking we have much of a say in how things pan out (particularly with WG) is to put it mildly, delusional.

But I always try and be constructive and provide the feedback anyways... ...  :cap_book:

I don't think they would be able to.
