    It was bad when I read what Alex posted and watched the video. It’s even worse reading this.

    But you know, they’ve been doing this for a long time; especially on the forums. Their little buddy-buddy system of mods, admins and their hangers on have ruined every Wargaming title I think far more than anything Wargaming developers actually did.

    That’s one power-tripping, small-minded asshole, right there.

  3. Thing 1 says:

    Yep. Bet he teaches his kids to cry like bitches and punish anybody they can for their own fuck ups.

    Fucking loser.

    Somebody posted about it on the Warships official site. Of course, it was very quickly shut down.

    How ironic! A problem(Marvin) that helped WG create a myriad of problems, throws a hypocritical fit. Huh……. never thought I’d see that.

  6. Thing 1 says:

    @ Whisky: I’m not the least bit fucking surprised. What a douchebag. “Violates our forum rules.”

    Yeah. Nevermind what your half-assed employee did violates the fucking terms of service of the entire fucking game, you dipshits.

    Funny thing is that the people who think the Graf Zeppelin is OP is supporting the employee in question who handed knavbot the account strike just for bringing out a CV

    And people wondered why the company’s player base is tanking.

  9. Gomez_Adams says:

    Exactly, Charlie. It’s this exact behavior that everybody I know has suspected all along that they vehemently denied that’s the root of the problem.

    If you don’t like something and state it, the mods and their groupies pounce on you and berate you while breaking every rule in the book and nothing happens to them.

    You state your case clearly and concisely and they have no retort, they ban you instantly or strike your account for no reason and then ban you.

    It’s been going on since day one.

    Wargaming banned me from their little reddit thread. LMMFAO!!!

    I posted a link to this story, told Sub Octavian he was full of shit and left. Oh well…I got a whole 5 posts out of that account. Like I can’t just make another one, the dumb fucks.

    But anywho, Knavbot sent me a message on reddit (still can’t figure out how any of the shit works because I never use it) and I clicked on his name and saw all his recent posts.

    Looks like Alex is right: they are all bashing Knavbot for even using the damn carrier he paid money for. Every post he’s making is defending himself. I mean, he fully admits the thing is OP as shit, but people are still actually blaming him for even using it and that he fully deserved the strike he got simply for that alone.

    And guess what? NONE of them are getting the ban hammer. LMMFAO!!! So once again the suck-ups to the mods come in to bash the victim and defend Wargaming and it’s all good.

    They’re like all those fucking disgusting assholes that blame a rape victim because she looks good. They’re all like, “yeah, well, if you weren’t good looking you wouldn’t have been raped so it’s your fucking fault, bitch!”. That same mentality.

    What a bunch of fucking useless whores, the lot of them. I would be embarrassed to have anything at all to do with any of those fucking sellout pricks.

  11. Zeedox says:

    That sub-reddit is filled with Mutual Admiration Society-types.
    I once complained on a WoT AMA (Ask Me Anything) about nerfing my bought Type 59. They banned me. I’ve never even tried to get the ban lifted because i just don’t care.

  12. Thing 1 says:


    What really cracks me up is they all think Sub Octavian is some nice guy that lives here in the states and really cares about them and all that happy bullshit.

    The fucker’s name is Philip Molodkovets. He lives in St. Petersburg, Russia (not Florida) and doesn’t give a fat rats ass about anybody. The fucking guy is a corporate yes man that spews bullshit his little followers suck up. I mean really, no self respecting Russian would EVER call himself ‘Phil’. He does that to try to sound more ‘murican and blend in and shit.

    They’re so fucking blind and stupid it’s ridiculous. But that’s what Wargaming counted on from the very beginning. It worked…for the first 3 years that is, before it blew up in their fucking faces.

  13. Gomez_Adams says:

    Well, hope you’re all sitting down:

    I just got threatened on World of Warships. Logged in for the first time in a while to see what was up (and frankly, was getting a bit burned out on a grind I’m doing in War Thunder jets) and this person starts up threatening me because of this site.

    He told me flat out that Wargaming has me targeted and is going to mess with my account. Somebody else seemed to agree with him on that point as well because of my association with you folks.

  14. Thing 1 says:

    You’ve GOT to be fucking kidding me. On the other hand, why am I not surprised? They did the same bullshit to Scorpiany when they found out he posted here a few times.

    What a bunch of epic assholes! I mean really! It’s bad enough they fuck up their own game. If they spent half the time fixing the goddamned thing as they did fucking with everybody it would be rock solid by now. Shit, three years ago!

    Needless to say: Send me whatever you got.

  15. Gomez_Adams says:

    I’m not kidding.

    And it all happened right in front of a moderator too. A moderator had just messaged to keep it clean (someone had sworn just minutes earlier) when it all started.

    So as far as I’m concerned, it was a direct threat from Wargaming.

    That or the greatest coincidence I’ve seen in years.

    At any rate, I’m making me some lunch now, so I’ll send the screen shots to you after that.

  16. Speedy_DePalma says:

    If my memory serves me right something similar happened a couple years back on wot where a mod sent a message to someone after a match in a mafiaesque way suggesting they’d personally see they’d get a ban or a strike for something they said in a game?

  17. Thing 1 says:

    @Gomez – cool.

    @Speedy – I’ve heard of similar things happening, but I’ve not seen screen shots on them. I’ve always thought that many times these assholes have dozens of accounts. So what they do is if they’re on their personal account and they see something or somebody kicks their ass, they simply log out, log in with their mod/admin accounts, give the dude a strike, ban or whatever, and then roll on back to their personal account.

    Sounds exactly like what just happened to Gomez. A mod post, Gomez posts, then moments later there’s an asshole threatening him. Log out of mod account, log in with personal, talk trash to try to start a fight, Gomez doesn’t bite, move on.

    The fuckers will stop at nothing to use their power when there’s no need on earth to. They’re sick in the fucking head.

  18. Thing 1 says:

    Story updated. Unfucking believable.

  19. Zeedox says:

    Do the same people who write Trump’s denials work for wg now?

  20. Insurrectional_Leftist says:

    What a fricken “ Cold War “ conspiracy style maneuver by a gaming firm being played by a Russian online gaming company on its own players.

    One day, someone has to write a book about Wargaming and what they have done to their players! Outrageous! 🙁

  21. Whisky_A_Go_Go says:

    Sub Octavian jumped in saying how they had “explained it all”.

    I asked how that’s possible. The software doesn’t work that way. You can’t report a platoon of people. They said they were just investigating earlier reports of the one guy. OK, I can get that. But if you were investigating earlier reports about the one guy, how did you ever know about the other two?

    You weren’t investigating them at all. What, did you somehow on accident happen to select those two names out of the millions you claim to have on accident? I mean what are the damn odds of that?

  22. Thing 1 says:

    Typical. They’re not too bright. They’ll type up something they think sounds smart (and it does to those dumb fucks) and it’ll leave shit out that don’t look right.

    When you point that out to them they’ll just keep adding and adding and going back and editing and editing until they make an excuse everybody else with a fucking brain keeps pointing out to them.

    After this incident, Graf Zeppelin CV has become rare, even players who do have it are not risking bringing it out because of the threat of being reported for devastating strikes on BB, CL, CA and other ships as well

  24. TheFouledAnchor says:

    To think I was somewhat interested and going back and playing Warshits. Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope. No more money from me Wargamming, this is just bad. Hosed. Wrong.

    This is one FUBAR’D SNAFU group of unsavory assholes…
