1001001110 – Absolute Cockgoblet
This is going to be a fun post.
1001001110… Yes, that’s his username. This absolute cockgoblet has made it his life mission to ruin every single player’s battle that he gets into… And so far, he’s been doing an incredible job. With a whopping overall Win Rate of 38.6% and recents of 34.06%, you may think that he’s just a bot. But alas, you’d be sadly mistaken. To drop below 42%, it generally takes being an active detriment to every team you’re on… And this guy really does take the cake.
I’ve had the displeasure of playing against him in the past, and have tried over and over to get him banned, but WarGaming simply put simply doesn’t give a single shit.
Take a look at his wonderful positioning. He’s as far away from any useful location as he possibly could be. When he’s called out for it in battle chat by many players in the battle, his responses are simply “fruitful” to say the lesat.
As though that wasn’t bad enough as it is, this wonderful asset of a player decides that after he’s spent the entire battle camping and spewing his garbage in the chat, that the best possible tactic is to drown his vehicle.
But here’s the thing – He’s been a well known troll for a long, long time. WarGaming doesn’t even have any excuses here – This guy openly admits to actively trolling, and it’s beyond any shadow of a doubt that he’s intentionally trying to be a detriment to his teams.
So, why hasn’t he been banned? Because WarGaming just doesn’t give a fuck. They really don’t. I’ve tried to get him banned many, many times. I’ve PM’d multiple WG employees, submitted screenshots & replays, mentioned him multiple times – And yet, nothing.
It’s just like stickygreen – Everyone knows it as a bot, one that’s been banned & had the account reset in the past… Yet it’s still around, botting.
I don’t understand why WarGaming doesn’t do anything. It’s beyond silly. It’s beyond reasonable. It’s just them not doing anything to keep tabs on their community, and showing some of the worst rule enforcement & community management that I’ve ever seen from a gaming company.
This issue goes far beyond just players. I might have to write about my full experience actually interacting with WG staff & employees. As former Council of Armored Forces, and current Community Contributor, I’ve had quite a few of them (Including some from the highest-ups)… And sadly they’re not particularly positive. I may come across as a corporate shill sometimes, but that’s just a certain level of restraint I have to have on WG’s platforms, as a CC. It sucks. However, sometime early last year, I decided that I wouldn’t continue to stop myself from criticizing the company. They do many things that they deserve to be called out for. As a CC, it should be my job to be a voice for the community. Part of that involves calling out the company for stupid decisions, and that’s what I’m going to do.
