World of Tanks Players Encourage Suicide – Wargaming Helps by Doing Nothing
Well, folks, just when you think the World of Tanks player base has hit rock bottom, that it just couldn’t get any worse, they go and prove us all wrong.
Earlier this morning, a reroll asshole named
Here is a shot of the OP by this fucking asshole:
That right there is a MANDATORY PERMANENT BAN!
This thread was reported by no less than 3 people INSTANTLY. What happened? Well, for over two hours, nothing…other than some fucking trolls encouraging him to do it and making light of it all.
What the flying fuck is WRONG with these people?!?!
Well, they’re fucked up individuals. We know that. The more important question is, what does Wargaming say about this? Let’s look at the rules:
FROM THE EULA:
2.16. Death threats and other threats of violence in real life, directed either against individual users, game masters or administration of the project, are prohibited.
2.22. Any statements or other actions that violate any applicable laws or regulations are strictly prohibited and will be strongly suppressed.
That right there warrants an instant permanent ban for all players that took part in it. But wait! There’s more!
FROM THE FORUM RULES
PROHIBITIONS AND RESTRICTIONS
- Making non-constructive posts, or creating threads on non-constructive topics.
- Death threats and other threats of violence in real life, directed towards either other forum users or members of Wargaming staff.
So not only did they break the game rules, they broke the forum rules. More than that, they broke the law.
Did Wargaming ban any of these assholes? No.
Did Wargaming report this to Law Enforcement? No.
What in fact did Wargaming do? They deleted the thread after allowing it to fester for HOURS.
Once again we see that Wargaming doesn’t have a competent staff to handle their forums. Not surprisingly, they also don’t have to balls to enforce their own rules.
But now they’ve taken it a step further: by NOT reporting this thread, they have set themselves up for a lawsuit the likes of which you wouldn’t believe.
You see, if for some reason that asshole
Why? Simple: Gross negligence.
Not only do they not properly monitor their own forum for such behavior and worse, they don’t report any of it to local law enforcement either.
Right now there is a girl on her way to prison for two-and-a-half years for encouraging a suicide. I wonder how long Wargaming will get if something goes tits up and it winds up being them on the hook for this?
After all, they took no action against ANY of the people involved in it. At all.
If Wargaming had ANY accountability and responsibility AT ALL, the following people would be INSTANTLY banned and have their accounts deleted:
