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 _xXx_R3AP3R_G4NDHI_xXx_, formerly of the clan OTTER, a known racist, troll clan from hell, decided it would be fun to make a suicide/self harm thread.

Here is a cached copy of the thread.

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 _xXx_R3AP3R_G4NDHI_xXx_ decides to go ahead, follow the advice of the pricks that jumped on the bandwagon of that shit thread, and cut himself to ribbons, guess who is going to be responsible for it?

WARGAMING.

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:

    Wow. Just wow. How far down the rabbit hole do you have to sink before you come up with absolute crap like this? I would not have hesitated one second to just delete their accounts. Instantly.

    What makes it worse is that after all the news recently of crap just like this ending badly, they get into it like it’s some sort of sick joke.

    I weep for the future. I truly do.

  2. Thing 1 says:

    Ditto dude. The fucking future is pretty damned bleak isn’t it?

    Unreal. This isn’t just “heat of the moment” stuff in game (I admit, I’m guilty of occasionally popping my top in game, but I try not to single any one person out), it’s just cold blooded filth from a slimy bastard.

    This is utter shit !! The WGNA staff, and those moderators are terrible! WARGAMING, will suffer the consequences one day from all of this. This is going to be such a MASSIVE (not just a one incident law-suit), but a MASSIVE Class-Action Law suit that is going to smack this shit out of them so hard, their are going to feel the sting all the over on the other servers, back to Minks and Cyprus both !!

    Because, when this happens in some kind of incidence like this above, “It’s not just going to stop with one lawsuit, it will blow into a Class Action Lawsuit, of the pervading problem itself that set the stat for it, and all players of the game will be covered under the Class-Action Lawsuit.

    And i’m telling you, the public is getting tired of Non-Disclosure agreements like in the past. They’ll be a news story one day, when it happens. And the PR Media will be massive!

    This post was flagged and automatically put into the spam folder because all you posted was a link. I don’t often check the spam folder, so that’s my bad for not noticing it until today.

    However, this was already covered on the forum here.

    – Thing 1

    Wait. You mean I wasn’t posting for GetFit Forums, and it was on wot forums? I was trying to tell McBiggies to take the extra steps and get the results. Nice to know that I’m in an article. Also that quote was from Family Guy. Why not Sue them? Did I ever say Please Kill yourself? No, it was just a short vague quote like one from a fortune cookie. The guy puts a troll video on the post… do you think hes really mentally unstable and is going to slit his wrist open? You guys responding to such a blatant cry for attention with such seriousness its funny. I mean come on guys he says he needs to be sure he survives. ecks dee, I expected a better meme from this supposedly top memester site. Also can you change my profile picture to something with big red text so I can be noticed more? Ban me to prove that you guys can’t take a meme, buddy boi. Hit me with dem SUPA unicum hax.

  7. Thing 1 says:

    You’re a fucking dick that encouraged suicide and self harm. Nothing more.

    LOL lets get this sorted out,
    First of all logging into the stupid forum website is actually linked to Wargaming, how just how is a forum that is dedicated to fuck people over? This entire forum goes against the EULA…SMH

    Secondly, That forum post that player made was a troll, for a website that is dedicated to talking about stupid post wouldnt you expect a bunch of stupid extremists and trolls?

    My post was simply a joke, if any of this people running this place that play the game extensively is that arty is a meme and is being made fun of all the time…

    I do not promote suicide and nor did anyone IN that thread including the OP, this entire thing is a joke…

    In the end, you extremist of a website should be taken down under the EULA for name and shame…

  9. Thing 1 says:

    LOL lets get this sorted out,

    OK. Lets.

    First of all logging into the stupid forum website is actually linked to Wargaming, how just how is a forum that is dedicated to fuck people over? This entire forum goes against the EULA

    First off, speak English you stupid fuck. Secondly, this is a blog that has a forum. You’re not on a forum. You’re on the blog. Thirdly, it’s Wargaming API that you log in with the exact same as Wotlabs and XVM. They and we are third party sites. Wargaming EULA does NOT apply to any of them. Dipshit.

    Secondly, That forum post that player made was a troll, for a website that is dedicated to talking about stupid post wouldnt you expect a bunch of stupid extremists and trolls?

    It may have been and in all likelihood was, dumbass. Learn to read. That’s exactly what we said. The problem is, we can’t be POSSITIVE about that. As such, encouraging someone to hurt themselves and/or commit suicide IS AGAINST THE FUCKING LAW you knuckle dragging, shit eating fucktard. So even if it was a troll, you should have simply reported it and moved on.

    But you didn’t. You and your butt buddies got together to troll the shit out of someone who just MAY have been posting a call for help. We don’t think that’s the case, but it may have been. If it was, and that guy hurt himself, I hope you have a REALLY good lawyer, pal. Because you WILL go to jail for that shit along with everybody else on that thread.

    My post was simply a joke, if any of this people running this place that play the game extensively is that arty is a meme and is being made fun of all the time…

    No, it wasn’t. It was an illegal act that violated not only criminal law, but also the rules of the forum and the EULA you agreed to, dumbass.

    I do not promote suicide and nor did anyone IN that thread including the OP, this entire thing is a joke…

    Yes you did. And the only thing that’s a fucking joke is your stupidity. It’s at truly laughable levels.

    In the end, you extremist of a website should be taken down under the EULA for name and shame…

    Man, you are about 1,845 bricks shy of a half load, let alone a full one. You have NO IDEA what the fuck you’re talking about and NO CLUE what an EULA is, how it works, or who is subject to it or not.

    Go back to school you fucking moron. That 7th grade education of yours isn’t doing you one goddamned bit of good.

  10. Gomez_Adams says:

    As brutal as that was, it was absolutely correct.

    There are some things in this life that are no joking matter. This is one of them. It’s a lot like any threat against the president: it’s a felony even if it is a joke.

    This is no different. The OP of that thread should be, at the very least, held for an evaluation by a professional therapist. Everybody that posted egging the OP on to do himself bodily harm would, in my state, get no less than a 30 day sentence and the better part of 1,200 hours of community service.

  11. Insurrectional_Leftist says:

    Maybe that’s what some of these guys need, and could atleast use: SOME COMMUNITY SERVICE.

    They darn sure don’t display it in this Community. Maybe they could use 1200 hours service at the Suicide Hotline in their local communities, or sent out on runs with the police to stop people from jumping off bridges, or from someone cutting their wrist?

    Maybe seeing grieving families after a suicide ?

    See, they behave in game this way, because they don’t have any sense of community, except the mice in the basement.

  12. Meatslab says:

    I uninstalled WOT after reading this.

  13. Insurrectional_Leftist says:

    In my mind at the moment this game is truly at its lowest ever in every manner now. It’s only tempered by the fact that it’s only going to keep getting worse.

  14. Thing 1 says:

    In all likelihood, you’re right. They’ve never even tried to fix the real root of the problem or any of the main game problems at all. They just keep hurling shit into an already enormous pile of shit.

  15. Mr_Alex says:

    @Thing1, Gomez and Insurrectional_Leftist

    I am surprised WG allows this crap to happen, I really am, currently I am beta testing Star Wars BF (Battlefront) 2 and we had a incident the other night where a bunch of players encouraged someone to committ suicide just because he played very well as a sandtrooper, well a day later on the forums a EA General Manager posted on the forums that the offenders who encouraged a player to committ suicide were banned and also reported to Law Enforcement

  16. Thing 1 says:

    Well done to them!

    If only EA was that good with their servers and products themselves.
