[Serious discussion]

its time to see Earl what will happen to him when he trolls alot of players.

 

 

 

He's the Mastermind of this Puerto Rico crapshow, making another twitter account and he broke one of the rules from Wargaming yet Sub_Octavcrap defends him from doing so.

 

 

 

Lets Discuss this matter, i hope he gets promoted to Customer. (Fired in this case.):Smile_hiding:

His actions, taunt and post were kind of bizarre. I'm curious to see what happens to him.

He seriously thumbed his nose at the entire playerbase.

I have been following this and I find it all very strange. I am not sure what he is thinking here or what he is intending to achieve.

I used to watch him a bit a long time ago back when he was still a CC. But he ran into some irl family and job issues iirc, which made him very inconsistent in his WoWs-related stuff. He would go quiet for days and weeks, come back and produce a few videos before going quiet again. The next thing I knew he was hired by WG and had moved to Russia.

It is very disappointing because he seemed like an alright chap back when he was a CC. Now he is like a totally different person. Perhaps the environment changed him. Or maybe he was always that way but never showed it. :Smile_amazed:

what a influence manager role he is holding right now

Irrespective of what his position is in wg or whether he is doing it in his private capacity, as an employee, he represents the company he works for when he talks about a particular topic. He can dissent with the views of the company but that clearly needs to be made clear. He can toe the company line but that does not mean he can troll the audience/customers. I am reminded of the case of Martin Shkreli which generated so much bad PR (bad pun again).

Regardless of what his life problems and personal issues are, it does not mean he can screw with the consumer base, especially one that is already baying for blood. After the top brass come back from their vodka fueled Xmas break, I expect action to be taken equivalent to what they take ingame to "inappropriate behaviour." Otherwise, I call it hypocrisy.

:fish_book: :cap_book:

He's also the mastermind of this Naval Training Centre thing, Earl had it enough and needs to be fired.

 

Seriously, he had ENOUGH damage to the playerbase and us, especially that Puerto Rico disaster, his mind is almost like an Autistic 5 year old that he gets money and creates a throwaway Account, WG had to address this very fast since this is a RULE BREAKER, why did WG hire this guy to do such thing? :Smile-angry:

I was also angered and confused at the first place. I did not know how he became an E m p l o y e e  at this state:Smile_amazed:

Maybe he is off his meds.

Medicine isn't the answer, he got dumped by his GF and a former CC.

He deserves a Firing, this would help.

Whatever his private life is, we don't care and you do not mix your private and working lives. What he should have done is taken this chance to work at wg to show his ex, " F O, I have the high ground and am better than you" not screw things up more.

He made a goose of himself on Twitter by PTW'ing his PR and made a joke about it and in doing so pissed on every single WOWS player and made the WG devs look even worse in regards to the PaytoRico fiasco.  This was an incredible feat in itself as no one thought it was actually possible to make it worse for them.

Sharkbeak, in case you are curious he's also the one who made the Rubbish Burnheap aka NTC 2.0

 

 

He also broke one of Wargaming's rules.

Not to mention Flamu was using this for evidence and also Earlgrey using a throwaway account.

 

Him as an employee is just basically famous to scrapheap, one of the tweet says he's a 5 year old "darted" (swear word censor) that didnt took the grind fairly, the rules is dont use boosters and gorizia, use regular boosters and such.

 

 

The more he flames the fire, the more he gets to firing.

Basically the summary is: He is being a douchbag/dick/a-hole/insert choice of words. There was a challenge on reddit for a wg employee to spend christmas doing nothing but grind the PR without use of any premium boosters, money, gorilla, etc2. He cheated his way by breaking all the rules and then rubbed it into the community. And spent no money on it because he is an employee and was using an employee account. 

A good analogy is he is using a aimhack program to play wows.

Flamu and Searaptor had been roasting him as well as fellow players from NA on twitter

 

There is a 2nd one who one Puerto Rico and he keeps getting roasted again so he decided to use a throway account

 

Disgusting. This is even worse than Chernobyl nor Attempted Coup de etat 1991.

So... A WG employee, bought the PR using a WG account, and then taunted the community about it...

Knowing full well that the community had issued a challenge, and were already very …. about the whole PR thing.

… Why would a WG employee deliberately taunt the community about that?

I know they don't care what we think anymore, but they usually at least pretend they care...

Now I know why the game is broken (or sucks) recently. The brain child of PR bush fire fiasco, and NTC / RB (and maybe even the "forced" WGC push?), his state of mind is not in a sane state. Even worse, the CEO also defends this unpopular person's decisions (How much power or rear kissing does this person have to make the CEO bow to his unpopular decisions?).

 

Also after watching Notser's, nozoupforyou's [WoWs] (and QuickyBaby's [WoT]) recent vid:
Why WG? Why do you want to make your player base angry? Why do you not listen to your player base and CC? Why do you want to make unpopular decisions to anger your player base? Do you enjoy angering your player base until it is too late?

 

In my experience:

1. Birds of the same feather, flies together.
2. Unpopular decisions tend to not last long in the company. (Even the CEO (s) will be jacked)
3. All rear kissing and no skills will soon have their "just deserts". Its just a matter of when.

 

For WG to learn or re-learn:

 

P.S. I kind of miss the Dasha and Alena friendly rivalry. Makes the WoWs shows / videos interesting. (Add Akhtyam, and you have a triangle. :Smile_hiding:)

This is what I am wondering. I am less curious about what he did and more about why?

Why would iEarlGrey do this? Was it a case of sarcastic humour or trolling going really wrong? Some beef with the community or certain CCs? Some weird plan to increase controversy and generate interest? What is he intending to achieve here?

Was he? This is the first time I am hearing of this.

Could you point me to the tweet or post where he said this?

Basically most of company. i may be understand if the company GREED and want more money so companies doing douchebag move to print more short term monies.

What i don't understand is....., sometimes the company doing douchebag move BECAUSE THE PRIDE OF DECISION MAKER. the move itself didnt print monies but only backlash.

WG COULD PRINT MORE MONIES BY SELLING MISSOURI AND MUSASHI BY CASH ONLY. Less backlash, spender more happy....

 

What they are currently doing now is scam people..... Thinking you can obtain Puerto Rico by only buy level 1 booster.... Or even 3 booster is enough... Of course the casual player gonna lose the monies and obtain nothing or forced to pay ridiculous amount of money.

The Directive is EZ but very tedious. Mission should be like Yamamoto Campaign or Halsey.... Its Hard but not grinding. I can guarantee LESS BOT, since only real player can get.... Also you will feel more excitement due to hardness skill only.

When player angry, did he attempt to apologize? Or just let it slide?
