    LOL. Well, you certainly know how to make a poll amusing. In the end though, most all of them will be canned. First off, there’s no way Wargaming would foot the bill to relocated them. Secondly, there’s no way the vast majority of them are being paid enough to where they would sell out and relocate to Austin with what would be in all likelihood a massive pay cut.

    I think Wargaming makes a clean sweep here with the possible exception of The Cheiftain. I mean, he does nothing really but post on the forum from time to time. I doubt he’s being paid much of anything at all anyway.

    Thanks! Thought you’d all get a kick out of it. In the end I think you’re right. Most of them will be shit-canned. I think they’ll keep that idiot Nicholas, but I don’t see Meathead making the trip. They’re not going to pay to keep all that bullshit running in California just for his stupid fucking videos.

    Maybe, those Moderators will be shit canned, gang raped, fired, and then shot 🙂

    Someone needs to tell Nyx_WGA, that her pizza shop is about to be closed !! Remember her, get out of my pizza shop post if you don’t like how we treat you here if you don’t like it rant on the NA forum ?

    Wonder what Nyx new job will be ?

  4. Thing 1 says:

    Probably waiting tables…

    in a fucking pizza shop. LMMFAO!!!!

    Now that’s the funniest thing I’ve seen all year. LMAO!!!

    LOL. Nice poll.

    Considering how badly NA has done in the past 2 years, I think all of them should be let go and new people put in. But, in reality, WoTs has done badly all over the world and hiring new people will do little to make things any better. The entire game is being run into the ground.

    Paul and Meathead might be offered a part-time remote gig, but I think everyone else will be let go and should be. The Thanksgiving Feast sale pretty much sealed the fate of anyone involved in that mess.

    In the military if you weren’t sure of the answer, the instructors told us to always pick “C.” or the “longest answer”.
    It hasn’t failed me yet….

  8. Beornotns says:

    Chieftain and Meathead will probably somehow parlay this into a remote thing, but everyone else will feel the gentle caress of a Silverback cadre hopped up on amyl nitrate, ecstacy and viagra wanting to recreate their favorite hate-fuck scene from Caligula.

  9. Thing 1 says:

    You guys are fucking killing me. LMMFAO!!!

  10. Insurrectional_Leftist says:

    Karma is real, butt kicker for sure! LOL

    I can remember all of those “shills” on the NA that used to tell us, “Meh, NA office is here to stay, it’s not going anywhere etc…” Well, it’s going somewhere allright! The downward spiral to hell ! With a touch of Texas road kill, hot sun, insufferable heat waves, etc. They sure will miss those nice mild San Francisco summers etc. [ That’s for the very few that end up going ] 🙂

    Dear captains!

    Not all sailing is smooth and as you may have noticed, we are having some issues with our Public Test currently. We hope you can give us some leeway, as we are in the middle of moving our servers to a new office location, so the fixes can’t be implemented until the beginning of next week.

    On the upside, one of the Public test’s purposes – is to make the bugs and errors known to the development team before the update itself is released, and in this case many of those turned up, so we can deal with them accordingly.

    We apologize if this makes your weekend less exciting than planned and thank you for your understanding.

    Fair seas and following winds to all the captains and see you soon in World of Warships!

    they even confirm the move here on the world of warships forum lol

  12. Thing 1 says:

    Fun fact: That statement is fucking bullshit. Their servers are leased and are not in the building at all.

    Forgive a gorilla not knowing the difference with Meathead.

  14. Thing 1 says:

    Neither does Meathead for that matter.

  15. Gomez_Adams says:

    I’ve never understood why he got into doing all those stupid videos.

    I mean really. They are ridiculous to a point of lunacy. I can only assume he was simply padding his own ego with them.

    He’s the stereotypical “Ugly American” type. Do you really think I would effing hire him in any of my endeavors??? Hell no. This is “ALL” he has. I think he is going to be a statistic of being unemployed in the short future. He will be stuck in meanlingless jobs I think for the rest of his life.

    The internet never forgives and never forgets and now he has been typed cast as a “undesirable”.

    If you have noticed of late many of the WoT, WoW youtubers have either diversified themselves into other games/topics or stopped doing those games all together.

    We all see the righting on the wall. As soon as WoT crashes and burns and only playable in Eastern Europe where it belongs… the better.

    Unfortunately there are too many sheeple that play this game and think that it is an important factor in their lives. You see them all of the time they are…

    But mainly in my eyes they are only “Air Thieves”… nothing more… nothing less…

  17. Gomez_Adams says:


    I have got to remember that one!

  18. Thing 1 says:

    They’ll all fucked. LMAO!!!

    They’re doing this move to get the hell out of high rent and high pay. They might work some deal with the “public” figures like The Chieftain at a fraction of what he was being paid before, but that’s about it.

    Everybody else is getting shit canned…and the raped by a gang of disgruntled gorillas.

  19. Mr_Alex says:


    You meaning all of them are fired, I wonder if the new people they hire in Texas will be any improvement?

  20. Thing 1 says:

    Nah. They’ll do the same thing: what they’re told to do. It’s over for Wargaming in North America. If they’re still around at all two years from now I’ll, be surprised.

    Sorry, I copied and pasted a longer list than I wanted, Look at the bottom of the list for Austin.

  23. Thing 1 says:

    I’ll categorize it and condense it.

  24. Thing 1 says:

    That tells us all we need to know.

    The lions share of jobs on offer are in Belarus and Cyprus. It’s clear that they are cutting the ENTIRE North American team loose, and keeping only a skeleton crew in Austin to manage the day to day operations and running the entire show from home.

    Everybody else is gone…exactly as I said.
